Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo! is premiering on Cartoon Network this Friday. Sweet! Usually it's never that fast.

Why did the original Scooby-Doo show have an incredibly fake laugh track?

You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!

Because...all 70's Saturday morning cartoons did? And cartoons don't have live audiences?
(And at least it wasn't that weird unnatural mix of variety-show laughtrack and chipmunk-giggle that Filmation cartoons had. :shock: )

Well he’s slightly annoying, ain’t he? Sometimes a fun recap of how things happened and why, but it took a while to get into the nitty gritty.

I actually used to love the HB laugh tracks, even though they totally baffled me as a kid. So cheesy and inappropriate, but also such a part of those shows and the audio equivalent of the cost-cutting animation methods in use. In a weird way, those laughs were *so* so fake sounding that they didn’t really sound like laughs in the end anyway, mainly because they had probably become redubbed so many times that they sounded like mush that wasn’t so much "laughter" as it was a raising and lowering in volume of some kind of background noise that kind of almost sounded a bit like laughter. But, yeah, all part of that era and the shows we grew up with, and to not have them there now would probably be more weird than having them there in the first place!

Tony Cervone has announced that they have now completed ‘SCOOB! HOLIDAY HAUNT’ despite Warner Bros. Discovery cancelling it for a tax write-off.

“A bittersweet conclusion for sure. I really hope you get the chance to see it somehow.”

The Flintstones had a laughtrack, being a sitcom, but watching them in their "original" form sans track on disc only emphasizes how subtle and deadpan some of the scripted gags were, and plays up the satirical sarcasm for more of a Simpsons vibe.

Plus, most of the early Yogi & Huck shorts never had laughtracks, since they were following the lead of theatrical cartoons on TV, and it captures the same deadpan style.

I was talking Scooby-specific, but yes. Flintstones here sometimes had a track, sometimes didn’t. I think maybe they had a change between seasons?

OK. Sure, why not? Nowhere else to go with the franchise at this point.
