Scoobert "Scooby" Doo (also known as Scooby-Doo or Scooby for short) is the eponymous character and the protagonist in the Scooby-Doo animated television series created by the popular Hanna-Barbera franchise. Scooby-Doo is the pet and life long companion of Shaggy Rogers and in many iterations, including the original series, is regarded as a unique Great Dane dog who is able to speak in broken English, unlike most other dogs in his reality. Other incarnations, such as A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, present talking dogs like Scooby as quite common. Scooby-Doo originally met Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, and Gopher in the first (and, for so far, only) episode of The New Winnie the Pooh Movies entitled The Pooh Mysteries (which featured the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! pilot episode What a Night for a Knight). Pooh's Adventures of Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins will truly explain how Pooh and his friends first met Scooby-Doo and the gang.
