Lyrics

Scooby Dooby
Scooby-Dooby-Doo
Scooby Dooby
Scooby-Dooby-Doo

There's a mystery in town,
So call the coolest pup around,
Oh, Scooby, a pup named Scooby-Doo

Scooby Dooby Doo, Scooby-Doo

Join Shaggy and the crew,
Daphne, Freddie, and Velma, too
And Scooby, a pup named Scooby-Doo

Scooby Dooby Doo, Scooby-Doo

When the ghosts and ghouls attack
Scooby eats a Scooby Snack
Scooby Dooby Doo
Velma: Jinkies

Scooby Dooby
Scooby Dooby
Scooby Dooby
Scooby Dooby

Scooby

So come on it's mystery time
You can help us solve the crime
With Scooby, a pup named Scooby,
Oh, Scooby, a pup named Scooby-Doo
Scooby Dooby Doo, Scooby-Doo
Scooby-Doo, where are you?
Scooby-Doo

Notes/trivia

  • The music was written first, then Ruegger added the lyrics.[1]
  • The second to last line of "Scooby-Doo, where are you?", is a reference to the "theme song first featured in the original series.
  • It has a similarity to the intro song of the film Little Shop of Horrors, which had become a hit around that time.
  • All of Ruegger's theme songs (such as Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs) have lyrics about the characters, as a simple way of introducing them to the audience.[1]
  • The theme song features five monsters from season 1, including an additional red blob-like monster that jumps out of Scooby's bowl.
