United States


The Scooby Doo Justice Project is dedicated to the belief that most of the "villains" in the original TV series "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?" were actually innocent. We believe that these men weren't just mistakenly accused of their crimes, but were purposely framed. Now we are convinced it's our job to clear their names. Follow along as Ralph Cramp and his criminal consultants conduct an ongoing investigation of the 1969-1970 Saturday morning cartoon. In each episode we examine key elements of the TV show as a whole and offer an alternative analysis of the official crime theory presented in a particular cartoon episode.
