The Daily Babbler is a local newspaper published in Coolsville.


Former employees


A Pup Named Scooby-Doo

Season one

The gang are heroes.

Shaggy and Scooby falsely accused of stealing.

Shaggy had a paper route with them until the discovery of criminal activities there by his boss forced him to quit.[1]

Shaggy and Scooby-Doo got their picture on the front page when they were accused of stealing samurai swords.[2]

There was a front-page article about the crimes of Stinkweed.[3]



  • In the first episode, the Daily Babbler is misspelled frequently, giving the impression that there may have been some confusion of the spelling/pronunciation from the animators.
    • As the gang follow the tire tracks to the Daily Babbler, both signs outside read "Daily Babble" and the sign at the top of the building still shows this while the camera is on the outside while Scooby messes with the elevator.
  • The only identifiable employees were Mr. Conrad and Shaggy in A Bicycle Built for Boo!, and they both lost their jobs (or quit in the latter's case) by the episode's end.
  • The Babbler has a model of Saturn on top of its building, much like the Daily Planet of Superman fame.
