Scooby Presents Buying Tips
Given that Scooby-Doo is very popular and has been since 1969, most people already know several trivia points about the show and who the characters are.
So it shouldn’t be too challenging to find the perfect gift for your friend or family member, especially if that person “identifies” with one of the characters.
While most of these gifts focus on Scooby and Shaggy, if your loved one identifies with Velma or Fred, you may want to search for those gifts instead.
Some of these gifts are meant for older children or adults, such as the wine stopper or the oven mitts. But many gifts are geared towards children ages three and up, as some gifts have small parts that could be a choking hazard.
Scooby Series Morphed Into Movies
Now that you know what to look for in Scooby gifts for your loved ones let’s take a time-out and review how the series stayed so popular and morphed into movies.
The series first started with “Scooby-Doo, Where are you?” in 1969 as a response to the civil and political unrest of the 1960s, in an attempt to take children’s attention off the violence of the time. Unlike the other slapstick cartoon comedies of the era, Scooby-Doo was more of an action-comedy where the villains were bad guys in costumes.
After two seasons on the air, the producers wanted to add a celebrity element, so they created the “Scooby-Doo Movies,” where the gang would meet different celebrities of the day in several mystery events. The Harlem Globetrotters appeared in at least three episodes and Batman and Robin, The Three Stooges, and Don Knotts.
During the 1980s, producers went a different direction and focused only on Shaggy and Scooby and their adventures. But this wasn’t a popular move, as fans wanted to watch the entire gang together.
The 1990s and 2000s were a time for feature-length movies that showed the gang in more realistic situations and mysteries. Movies included:
- Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost
- Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Phantosaur
- Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
- Scooby-Doo and the Cyberchase
But later, the series got an overhaul with 2002’s “What’s New Scooby-Doo?” which depicted the gang using new gadgets and new ideas to solve mysteries. The reason Scooby-Doo is just as popular now as it was when the series began is that the producers spot trends and use those in the new episodes and movies, making the shows relevant to children in any era.
So there you have it–30 Scooby mystery gifts to please the Scooby-Doo fan in your life. If you find something especially awesome or “mysterious,” be sure to let us know in the comments!
