    The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries is the sixth of many short-lived and lesser-known Scooby-Doo shows. But this show is basically the same as Scooby And Scrappy, except that there is a new beginning song and before that Scrappy talks about what the episode is about. In this spinoff series, Daphne assumes Fred's position as leader (Fred and Velma only appear in a few episodes in this series), a tremendous departure from the days of "Dangerprone Daphne". Shaggy, Scooby, Scrappy, and Daphne solve mysteries under the pretense of being reporters for a teen magazine. The theme song is also new, sung in the same style as Michael Jackson's hit Thriller with a row of monsters doing the "Thriller" dance in the opening sequence.

    Probe was a short-lived series created by Isaac Asimov and William Link (Columbo, Matlock). It revolved around the adventures of eccentric scientific genius Austin James and his quirky secretary, Micky. As owner of a scientific developing firm, Serendip, the two of them would often get drawn into scientifically-based mysteries ranging from locked-room mysteries in a nuclear reactor to murder with holograms to strange electrical aliens plaguing a science fiction author.moreless
