    "The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show" is the sixth incarnation of the Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon Scooby-Doo. It premiered on September 10, 1983, and ran for one season on ABC as a half-hour program made up of two eleven-minute short cartoons. (In 1984 for the second season, the name of the show was changed to "The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries", with the actual show format remaining the same.)

    Thirteen half-hour episodes, composed of twenty-four separate segments were produced under the New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo title in 1983.

    For this incarnation of the show, Hanna-Barbera attempted to combine the most successful elements of both the original "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" format and the newer "Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo" format. Daphne Blake, a character from the original "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" format, was added back to the cast after a four-year absence. The plots of each episode feature her, Shaggy Rogers, Scooby-Doo, and Scrappy-Doo solved supernatural mysteries under the cover of being reporters for a teen magazine. Each half-hour program was made up of two 11-minute episodes, which would upon occasion be two parts of one half-hour long episode.
