We all have those little somethings we cherish so much that bring back our most precious childhood memories. It can be anything from a box of cereals of some special kind to an adorable childhood cartoon series. And ruh-roh, does time really fly! Can you believe it has been 50 years already since the childhood favorite "Scooby-Doo" first appeared on TV screens? It brightened the days of a couple of generations and is still going strong. In order to celebrate the anniversary of this adorable show, we compiled a list of some adorable dogs who look exactly like our beloved cartoon character! Scroll down to take a look!
The series first hit TV screens in 1969 and was originally named "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" after some organizations, including "Action for Children's Television" noticed that Saturday-morning cartoons had quite a bit of violence in them and started protesting.
After the movement started, the producers tried to come up with something less violent to best match the needs and satisfy the audiences. They came up with various shows and had the now-famous character of a huge dog for one of them. After seeing the potential, the producers decided to rename him Scooby-Doo and centered the whole show around it.
Among the less known facts about "Scooby-Doo" is that one of it's first producers, Fred Silverman, is said to have been inspired by Frank Sinatra's scat "doo-be-doo-be-doo" at the end of his recording of "Strangers in the Night" when picking out the name for the cute dog.
