Scooby (originally intended to be called a sheepdog called Too Much) was created for a unaired show called 'Mysteries Five" which was would have a featured a band who balanced Monster fighting with their musical career in a similar vein to Josie And The Pussycats. The pitch was later heavily altered to the familiar Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?.
Designer Iwao Takamoto consulted a Great Dane breeder to learn the makings of a prize-winning Great Dane and specifically designed "Two-Much" to be the opposite. Two Much was renamed Scooby-Doo after Frank Sinatra's trademark scat following his song "Strangers In The Night"
The eldest of
- Scrappy Doo. Scooby's young nephew (and son of Scooby's sister Ruby Doo), Scrappy is the bravest of Scooby's relatives. Scrappy became a recurring character in the Scooby Doo series beginning in 1979, and was noted for being quite headstrong and always wanting to face off in a fight against the various villains (unlike his uncle). Scooby and Shaggy were present at Scrappy's birth.
- Yabba-Doo: According to Scrappy and Yabba-Doo Yabba is Scooby's brother, a white dog owned by Deputy Dusty in the American southwest. Unlike Scooby, Yabba is brave. Unlike Scooby's and Scrappy's, his typical custom catch-phrase at the end is "Yippity-Yabbity-Doooo!!!" (and not "Yabba-Dabba-Doo!", presumably due to another Hanna-Barbera character's usage of that phrase).
- Scooby-Dum: Scooby's cousin, a blue-grey dog. A Mortimer Snerd-esque dog who longed to be a detective. Was rather dimwitted (he'd keep looking for clues even after the mystery was solved).
- Scooby-Dee: Scooby's distant cousin, a white dog. Spoke with a Southern accent, and was an actress.
- Dooby-Doo: Scooby's cousin, a singer. He is one of Scooby's few relatives to have hair on his head. Only appeared in "The 'Dooby Dooby Doo' Ado".
- Momsy and Dada Doo: Scooby's parents.
- Whoopsy-Doo: Scooby's cousin, a clown. Owned by Shaggy (Norville)'s uncle, Gaggy Rogers.
- Ruby-Doo: Scooby's sister, and mother of Scrappy-Doo.
- Skippy-Doo: Scooby's brother. Highly intelligent. He wears glasses.
- Howdy-Doo: Scooby's brother. Enjoyed reading supermarket tabloid newspapers. He appears to become a redhead.
- Horton-Doo: Scooby's uncle. Was interested in monsters and science.
- Dixie-Doo: Scooby's cousin and the pet of Betty Lou, Shaggy's Southern cousin.
- Grandpa Scooby: Scooby's grandfather.
- Great-Grandpa Scooby: Scooby's great-grandfather.
- Yankee-Doodle-Doo: Scooby's ancestor. Not much is known about him. He appears to be a pilgrim.
- Dumper Scoots: A confused lion that thinks he is a dog. Having the same speech pattern as Scooby-Doo, he believes he is Scooby's cousin.
Scooby-doo is scared of ghosts, monsters, dark places or creepy people. In an episode of a pup named Scooby-Doo, he was scared of weredoos (dogs turned into werewolves).
