How to Draw Scooby-Doo Step by Step

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Scooby-Doo". Since the show was created in 1969, Scooby-Doo became one of, if not the most, famous cartoon of all time. The show has had numerous design and plotline adjustments, there have been films made about the Scooby Gang, and the show has brought a lot of money from merchandise and other paraphernalia sales.


Here are some interesting facts about Scooby-Doo:

1. The show was originally pitched as a group of friends in a rock band with a pet named Too Much who plays the bongos.

2. Scooby-Doo is a triplet with Skippy-Doo and Dooby-Doo. They have 3 other siblings - Howdy-Doo, Yabba-Doo, and also Ruby-Doo.

3. Velma's phrase, "My glasses... I can't see without them!" was firstly said by Velma's voice actor Nicole Jaffe at the first table read. She dropped her glasses and said it. The authors assumed her reaction was adorable and added it to the cartoon.

4. In 2013 TV Guide ranked "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" as the 5th Greatest TV Cartoon of All Time.

5. Scooby-Doo's name was inspired by Frank Sinatra's song "Strangers in the Night." During part of the tune, Sinatra scats the phrase "doo-be-doo-be-doo," which is the base of Scooby's full name, Scoobert Doo.
