    Today, Scoobanatics, I talk with Lane Raichert about his time on A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. Mr. Raichert worked as a writer and story editor for the first three seasons, and was also promoted to producer on the second and third.

    You're about to learn all of this, anyway, so there's not much need for me to say anymore, so without further ado, I present to you:

    An Interview With... Lane Raichert.

    Scoobypedia: How did you get your start in the animation business?
    Raichert: When I was 17, a family friend, Hanna-Barbera staff writer Doug Booth, was kind enough to offer me a tour of the studio back when I was visiting California. Doug showed me around, introduced me to workers in the trenches, everybody was super nice, and then I left. I thought that wa…

If you wanted to know the behind the scenes of this very different show and how it came about, then listen to the video below. Thanks to Muddlemore, and a special thanks to Mike Jozic of A Podcast Named Scooby-Doo, who cut it together. (Muddlemore has offered to do a transcript that will be posted at a later date.)

    So, without further ado, I present An Interview With... Stephanie D'Abruzzo. (Questions are asked as Scoobypedia, replies are shortened to SD.

    Scoobypedia: How did you get into the biz?
    SD: I have always loved performing, but I didn’t discover puppetry as something I wanted to pursue until I was in college (Northwestern University) and I realized that as a puppeteer I could improvise, and sing, and play any kind of broad, crazy, strong character I wanted, regardless of age, height, weight, gender, or species, without it matter…

    Today, we talk to Jordana Arkin, a freelance writer for seasons 2 and 3 on What's New, Scooby-Doo? This is the first What's New, Scooby-Doo?-themed interview.

    So, without further ado, I present An Interview With... Jordana Arkin. (Questions are asked as Scoobypedia, replies are shortened to JA.)

    Scoobypedia: How did you get into the biz?
    JA: When I was just out of college, I was doing research at the Burbank library for a sitcom spec script. I was waiting in line for the copier and started talking to a friendly looking guy next to me. He told me he was working as a freelance writer for Hanna-Barbera. I was so impressed and eventually asked if he would consider mentoring me through an animated spec script. He did and when H-B had a new show and wa…

    In highschool and college, I drew editorial ca…
