The New Scooby-Doo Comedy Movies

CBS - Premiered 9-9-72

Scooby Doo with Don Knotts


The New Scooby-Doo Comedy Movies was a continuation of the previously-successful Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? but with a novel twist: each episode would feature a guest star or stars, either from the 'real' world or the stable of Hanna-Barbera cartoon properties. What made the show unique for its time was that we kids got to see some characters in cartoon form that either were never in other animated shows (Cass Elliot), or who weren't available to watch on other shows at the time ( Batman & Robin). TNSDCM episodes were one hour long, and still featured the Scooby gang chasing after mysteries and the supernatural.

This incarnation of Scooby's adventures would last through the 1973-74 season, then in fall of 1976 the characters would return as part of The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour.
