Super ‘70s and ‘80s: “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!”—introduction

Introduction to series “Super ‘70s and ‘80s.” 

Scooby-Doo and his gang do good deeds like superheroes and have even worked with superheroes (Batman and Robin)...

...but they’re not superheroes themselves.

Nonetheless, Scooby-Doo is included in this predominantly superhero-focused series (as the last addition), and the reason is that he, tied with Super Friends, was my childhood favorite. Also, the Scooby people I was most interested in fit the criteria of most of the others in this series: they have not been interviewed before about their Scooby role.

The voice cast (mid-1970s), most of whom have been interviewed before: 
Casey Kasem (Shaggy), Heather North (Daphne), 
Don Messick (Scooby-Doo), Pat Stevens (Velma), 
Don Jurwich (producer), Frank Welker (Fred).
