    Here's what I remember about season 1 of Scooby-Doo Where Are You (1969-70) as treated in syndication and cable reruns (1998 and back):
    Episode 1 ("What a Night for a Knight") uses the instrumental theme by Ted Nichols (same as the episode title card music) in the opening title, but uses the commonly-heard vocal theme by David Mook/Ben Raleigh.
    Episode 2 ("A Clue for Scooby-Doo") uses Nichols' theme song in the closing credits as well. This also aired after episode 3 (until 1990) due to production order.
    Episode 3 ("Hassle in the Castle") uses the Mook/Raleigh theme song in the opening credits but the Nichols theme in the closing. Ditto for episodes 13 and 16. Additionally, this episode aired after episode 1 but before episode 2 (until 1990) due to production order.
    Episodes 4-12, 14, 15 and 17 use the Mook/Raleigh theme song in both the opening and closing credits.

    But first-run CBS showings (to 1971) would have treated them this way (need confirmation):
    Episodes 1 and 2 would have Nichols' theme heard both in the opening and closing credits.
    Episode 3 would have the Mook/Raleigh theme in the opening, but Nichols' theme in the closing.
    Episodes 4-17 would have the Mook/Raleigh theme in both the opening and closing credits.

    I think that mixing up the themes was a Turner thing.

    I remember USA Cartoon Express also treating the episodes "Which Witch is Which" and "A Night of Fright is No Delight" that way as well when they re-ran Scooby-Doo from 1990-94.
