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.
Again the old Scooby & pup Scooby are way better than this show. The new Scooby based shows are killing the old Scooby & the up Scooby. What are CN thinking? This was a pathetic waste of air time & shouldn't have aired at all. But it did & it doesn't air anymore period. Thank goodness.
