Velma, the animated horror-comedy series based on the Velma Dinkley character from the Scooby-Doo franchise, started to stream its first season on HBO Max this January 2023. The new show revolves around the titular character and the other human members of Mystery Incorporated before their official formation, making the series the very first TV series in the franchise to not feature the Scooby-Doo character. So if you’re one of those fans who miss Scooby the dog while watching Velma, fret not, because the franchise actually has a massive collection of TV series and movies that are readily available to stream online. Read on to discover some of the most popular Scooby-Doo TV shows and movies, and learn where they are available to stream.
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: Where to watch
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! is the first-ever Scooby-Doo TV series. Created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and produced by Hanna-Barbera, the animated show centers on four teenagers Fred Jones (Frank Welker), Daphne Blake (Stefanianna Christopherson / Heather North), Velma Dinkley (Nicole Jaffe / Pat Stevens, and Shaggy Rogers (Casey Kasem), and their talking dog named Scooby-Doo (Don Messick), who travel in their van, named The Mystery Machine, bumping into and solving mysteries. Once solved, the crew usually learns that the mastermind of the mystery is a disguised person who seeks to exploit a local legend or myth for personal gain.
The series originally ran for three seasons from 1969 to 1978 on CBS. As of this writing, fans can watch the entire series via the Boomerang Amazon Channel on Amazon Prime Video.
Scooby Doo Mystery Inc: Where to watch
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is the 11th TV series incarnation of the Scooby-Doo media franchise. Mystery Incorporated goes back to the early days of Scooby and the gang when they are still solving mysteries in their hometown. It, however, is the first Scooby-Doo TV show to adapt a serial format with an ongoing story arc featuring darker and serious plot elements, as well as ongoing relationship drama among the characters.
Mystery Incorporated originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2010 to 2013 for two seasons. Both of which are available to stream on HBO Max and Boomerang.
Scooby-Doo! Zombie Island: Where to watch
Scooby-Doo! Zombie Island is the first animated direct-to-video movie based on Hanna-Barbera’s Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons. The 1998 film finds Shaggy, Scooby, Fred, Velma, and Daphne reuniting after a year-long hiatus from Mystery, Inc. to inspect a bayou island that is said to be haunted by the ghost of the pirate Morgan Moonscar.
Darker in tone than most Scooby-Doo flicks, Scooby-Doo! Zombie Island is notable for featuring real supernatural creatures rather than people in costumes. Praised by critics for its animation and story, the movie got a direct-to-video sequel, titled Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island, which was released in 2019.
While fans can watch Scooby-Doo! Zombie Island on Boomerang, Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island is not available on any streaming service in the United States. Fans who want to watch the sequel can rent or buy a copy of the movie on Apple iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play Movies, YouTube, Vudu, or DirecTV.
Scooby Doo Cyber Chase: Where to watch
Released in 2001, Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase is the fourth animated direct-to-video movies based on Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons. In the film, Scooby and the gang get trapped in a video game created for them. To escape the game, they must go level by level and defeat the so-called Phantom Virus once and for all.
Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase is the first animated Scooby-Doo film to be produced in high-definition format. It is also the inspiration of a video game of the same name, which was released for the PlayStation and Game Boy Advance in the same year. In 2013, the PlayStation version of the video game became a “Greatest Hits” title.
Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase is currently streaming on Boomerang.
Does Netflix have Scooby-Doo on it?

Directed by Raja Gosnell from a screenplay by James Gunn, the film follows the members of Mystery Incorporated who reunite after a two-year disbandment to investigate a mystery at a popular horror-themed tropical island resort. The movie was a commercial success, as it grossed a total of $275 million at the worldwide box office, against a production budget of just $84 million.
Is Scooby-Doo on Disney Plus?
