11:00 on ABC in 1984 was the tipping point for Scooby-Doo, namely with The Scary Scooby Funnies - which I like to think of as the '80 Page Giant Annual" of 1980's Saturday Morning Cartoons.

80 Pages of comics, 4 of which are all-new, the rest is reprints going as far back as the dawn of comicdom.

The current "New" Scooby-Doo cartoon in this season was the second season of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, which brought the whole gang INCLUDING SCRAPPY-DOO together for the first time ever in a series of two 11-minute adventures, followed by The Scary Scooby Funnies which was a random repackaging of pretty much every Scooby-Doo series of "The ABC Years" that had featured just Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy. Out of the full hour of Scoobcentric programming, you could end up with 45-minutes of "Vintage" Scooby-Doo and a single 11-minute "New" adventure.

This was the last season of Scooby Doo that would follow the traditional stand-alone mystery adventure story structure.

...I have no memory of that, but it looks awful. O.o

And, y'know, I'm a guy who loves me some Scooby Doo!
