I think that a lot of the Hanna Barbera cartoons that came out during the 1970s and 1980s such as Jabberjaw, Speed Buggy and Captain Caveman had copied the Scooby Doo formula about a group of kids solving mysteries while having a comedic team pet along the way. Even though I've seen these shows, I tend to disregard them bit because of this.
