A Pup Named Scooby-Doo is the eighth incarnation of the Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon Scooby-Doo. This spin-off of the original show was created by Tom Ruegger and premiered on September 10, 1988 and ran for three seasons on ABC as a half-hour program, until August 17, 1991 (though reruns continued until 1993). Reruns can occasionally be seen on Cartoon Network sister channel Boomerang.
Following the show's first season, much of Hanna-Barbera's production staff, including Tom Ruegger, left the studio, and helped to revive the Warner Bros. Animation studio, beginning with Tiny Toon Adventures. This was notable for being the last series where Don Messick voiced Scooby and one of the few animated series in which someone other than Frank Welker voiced the character of Freddie Jones. Messick and Casey Kasem (who voiced Shaggy) were the only two voice actors from other Scooby-Doo series to reprise their roles in this version.
