We recently passed the 50th anniversary since “What a Night for a Knight”, the first episode of the original Scooby-Doo, aired on television.
It was created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears for Hanna-Barbera back in 1969 and the public’s reaction was immediate. It was love at first sight!
Mysteries, puzzles, and lots of fun with many running gags and a colorful cast made the Scooby-Doo cartoon a Saturday morning staple.
Since then, the Mystery Gang has starred in many films and spinoffs along with plenty of ripoffs too, but the series is still going strong to this very day.
If you’re looking for some coo Scooby-Doo memorabilia they you won’t have to look far. Whether it’s for a friend, child, or even if you’re a Mystery Inc. enthusiast yourself, I know it’s never enough Scooby.
So this extensive gift guide should help you find the best Scooby-Doo merch you can pick up today.
Scooby-Doo Toys & Figurines
1. Daphne & The Wolfman
First up we have a classic pairing.
Fashionable sleuth Daphne can’t get away from the Wolfman, who first appeared in the classic series’ eleventh episode: “A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts”.
This officially licensed pair of figurines can become the protagonists of a thousand stories in the hands of a child, or simply push a collector’s classic collection a little further towards completion.
2. Velma & Frankenstein
From the same episode we get the orange-clad nerdy heartthrob Velma, gathering clues to uncover Frankenstein’s Monster real nature.
Whether you’re looking for your nephew’s Christmas gift or something for your own little Scooby-Doo exhibition, you’ve gotta give this licensed collectible a chance.
3. Scooby Dum
If you’re looking for something a bit more unusual, Figures Toy Company brings us Scooby-Dum. By the name you can probably tell he’s Scooby-Doo’s not-so-bright cousin.
His first appearance was “The Gruesome Game of Gator Ghoul” from the original series, and he’s been a recurring character since then.
He’s notorious for his foolish antics, but also his uncanny ability to solve problems in the most absurd ways. All thanks to his absolute ignorance of the laws of nature, physics, etc.
No classic set of figures will ever be complete without this buck-toothed Great Dane.
4. Ghost Toy Playset
Are you hearing weird noises around the house?
Do faucets start running water on their own in the middle of the night?
Does your dog bark at walls for no apparent reason?
It sounds like you might have a classic case of haunted house, and it’s time to call in the experts.
This officially licensed set is comprised of fully articulated figurines of both Scooby and Fred, along with a fully-mobile Mystery Machine equipped with everything needed to deal with ectoplasmic entities(wherever they may be hiding).
If it turns out there was no haunting then don’t worry, the set includes a sheet-ghost figurine to play the part.
5. Haunted Ghost Town
If you’ve grown bored of the classic haunted house scenario then perhaps you’ll want to explore the eerie mines of this haunted town with the aid of your favorite four-legged sleuth.
Just be careful, because Fisher-Price has packed this set from their Imaginext line with obstacles for Scooby to overcome in his quest to unmask the phantom miner terrorizing the town.
Barrels, a mine-cart, and working railways can be surprisingly dangerous in the wrong hands.
6. Scooby-Doo Monster Set
If playing out the same individual scenarios over and over gets old quickly then it’s time to take the next step and start casting new members for your imaginary acting troupe.
This 10-character Scooby-Doo set includes fully articulated figurines of the famous Mystery Gang, along with five of their most notable catches: The Witch Doctor, The Ghost Rider, The Ghost of Redbeard, The Beast of the Bottomless Lake and the 10.000 Volt Ghost.
These figures are very durable and will withstand hours of heavy play like it’s nothing. Time to put on a full-fledged Scooby-Doo adventure!
7. Mystery Solving Crew Set
Fancy monsters aside, the true soul of a real Scooby-Doo adventure has to be the members of the Mystery Gang and their trusty van, the Mystery Machine.
With this mystery-solving set you’ll never have to worry about anyone being left behind.
Every figure fits perfectly in the Mystery Machine for easy transport, and it even features goo-busting equipment and barrels to take care of any goo-monsters you might run into.
8. Scooby Plush
Whether you’re buying for a child or an older fan, a Scooby plush will always be a welcome addition.
This ultra-soft crime-fighting Great Dane from Animal Adventure will make any room feel safer, or at the very least livelier.
9. Sherlock Scooby
We all know sleuthing is all about looking the part and being in the right place at the right time.
In this case, the right place is your home, and the right time is now!
This official Cartoon Network Sherlock Scooby-Doo is ready to solve the most bizarre of mysteries, so place him wherever there’s a definite need of Scooby’s intellect… or cuteness.
10. Scooby Doo Wizard
Magic is also a great tool for fighting crime. And in Scooby’s doggy paws, it’s also a great way to make physics-defying giant sub sandwiches.
You don’t believe in magic?
Just wait until you hold this über-fluffy magical detective in your arms. If that softness isn’t magic, I don’t know what it is.
11. Velma Plush
Surprisingly enough, not everyone’s favorite character from the show is the gluttonous great dane!
Some have a soft spot for the woman who keeps turtleneck sweaters and knee-socks in-style and inspires us all to seek intellectual excellence: Velma Daisy Dinkley. Jinkies!
12. Scrappy-Doo Plush
He’s the cute and small comic relief of the show and we love him for that. Although sometimes he does play the resentful, misbehaved puppy criminal from Scooby-Doo: The Movie…
But Scrappy-Doo never fails to make things interesting with his feisty personality.
This officially licensed bean bag plush from the Warner Bros. Store isn’t only a highly sought after collectible, but also well-made and super cuddly. Puppy power!
13. Meddling Kids
One of the most seamless ways to show your franchise fandom is apparel, and this shirt will remind any wrongdoers they’re never safe from Meddling Kids getting involved.
It’s available in various colors to suit your preferences, and the high-quality threading will let you keep wearing it for years to come.
14. Zoinks! Shirt
Are you the one who’s always stuck in the stickiest of situations?
Do your friends know you as “the sub sandwich fiend”?
Then show the rest of your crew what you’re all about with this 100% cotton shirt from Pop Funk. Zoinks! It even comes with stickers for your Mystery Machine.
15. Sleep Pants
The simple soothing colors of these pajama pants are perfect for cowering under your covers in fear of monsters. Or sleeping, either way.
Their breathable and comfy fabric is ideal for hanging around the house at ease, and they’ll also keep you warm once the night falls.
Plus they’re quite strong and they’ll fit you perfectly thanks to the adjustable elastic band. Even sleuths need to rest once in a while.
16. Mystery Machine Socks
If you’re gonna be running around hunting for criminals all day you need some good, comfortable socks to protect your feet.
These Mystery Machine socks are all that and more!
Plus studies suggest 80% of people feel safer sleuthing while wearing socks so you’ll want to follow that totally made up statistic to a tee.
17. Fred’s Ascot
This high-quality accessory modeled after Fred’s signature ascot tie will complete any cosplay of the character and generally make you a resounding success with the ladies… as well as show your peers who’s the leader around here.
18. Scooby Bow Tie
No mystery-solving team is complete without a bow-tie-wearing doggy.
So let your dog join in on the fun with this blue Scooby bow tie from PawsWithStyleShop over at Etsy.
It’ll make your dog the most fashionable at the park, and it’s made with resistant materials to endure the hardships that come with dogs who love to play and roll around a lot.
19. Scooby Belt
This colorful belt will not only show your love for the big cowardly dog, but also complete any bright 70’s-inspired attire.
It’s made from resistant materials so you don’t have to worry about it breaking while chasing criminals. And its simple clasp buckle is interchangeable if you want something a bit more daring.
20. Custom Slippers
Now if you’re looking for something to match the sleep pants and socks we covered earlier, these ultra-soft Scooby-Doo slippers are what you need to complete your pajamas.
They’re made of the best materials and the Mystery Machine-themed anti-slip sole will support your every step.
21. Scooby & Shaggy Backpack
Every sleuth needs a backpack to store their magnifying glass, clue-collecting tools and, of course, their grotesquely big Shaggy Super Sandwiches.
You can probably even fit your laptop in there!
Show your friends you’re all about solving mysteries and eating hoagies with this long-lasting, officially licensed Scooby backpack featuring the carefree pair of the Mystery Gang.
Scooby-Doo Merch & Collectibles
22. Scooby Christmas Stocking
So you’ll need the watchful eye of this talking Scooby to make sure nobody slithers away with the Christmas presents before its time to open them!
This Scooby-Doo themed Christmas stocking isn’t only a great gift for a Scooby enthusiast, but for any collector of Christmas décor.
23. Vintage Ornaments
Even the Mystery Gang takes some time off every year to partake in Christmas festivities.
And you can invite them into your own home with these vintage ornaments. Scooby will liven up your regular old Christmas tree, and he’ll even bring his own pine tree on the Mystery Machine.
Should a dog really be driving a van on a snowy night? I think that’s a question for another day.
24. Christmas Wreath
This might be the single cutest Christmas wreath for a Scooby-Doo fan, or anyone who grew up with the show for that matter.
Every piece of this decoration, including the small cutesy versions of Scooby’s human companions, are hand-crafted by AlwaysAKidAtHeart over at Etsy. This makes every wreath truly unique!
It’s a shame these are only for Christmas. Although I do know some people who can’t be bothered to take them down for most of the year so hey, up to you!
25. Mystery Machine Alarm Clock
You know what Grandma-Doo used to say: Lose an hour in the morning, and you’ll be up all day sleuthing for whoever took it.
This 1999 vintage Mystery Machine alarm clock will help you unmask the demons of oversleeping, and it’ll make a delightful gift for any collector. Or it’ll help just complete a Scooby-themed room.
26. Computer Decor
This is one of the most peculiar items in the list, partly because of how perfectly it embodies the tech-craze of the early 2000s.
But also because of the sheer insanity of Scooby’s facial expression.
Why is he even surfing with a keyboard? Has this Cyber-surfer been drinking saltwater?!
27. Scooby Cake Mold
Making the perfect-looking Scooby-Doo cake will depend mostly on your baking skills. But you won’t get anywhere without the right shape.
This cake pan from vintage article seller NothingsNewHere can also be hung up to become a wonderful decoration, as the holes in it indicate it has been before.
That’s what makes vintage items so interesting: there’s always a story to uncover.
28. Scooby Tags
These 3D-printed Scooby dog tags are perfect for accessorizing your keys, your bag, your dog’s collar, and even the cat if you want to push your feline friend into the Mystery Gang.
Their vivid colors and accurate shape will make any fan lose their chill. And they even come in different shades of blue!
29. Tote Bag
We all have a couple of “essentials” we’re never truly comfortable without.
So what better than a Scooby-Doo themed tote bag with a light color palette and classic look to carry them in?
These are handmade by KatFiveCents on Etsy and they’ll match any chill outfit for going about your business both in comfort and style.
30. Kid’s Lamp Design
This beautiful Scooby-Doo lamp is bound to give any space that little spark of lighthearted personality to make it feel alive.
It features every member of Mystery Inc. with movable parts at the base and a themed glass shade.
Just be careful, as placing it on your desk will no-doubt distract you from any task on those long working weekdays. Maybe get it for a kid and save yourself the trouble?
31. Vintage Coin Bank
Back in the day kids used to get piggy-banks to teach them the value of saving.
And nowadays you can get your kid a vintage Scooby-Doo coin bank from the 2000’s to teach them the value of saving… just so they can splurge on miscellaneous memorabilia from ages past later down the line!
32. Scooby Doo Outlet Plate
Yes, you read that right.
A Scooby-Doo outlet plate is an item only the truly hardcore among fans of the show could possibly understand, let alone appreciate… and it’s also perfect for a child’s room.
Maybe, just maybe, Scooby and the Mystery Gang will finally be able to solve the age-old mystery of why American outlets look so scared.
33. Pot Holder Set
The best collectible items for the uninitiated are those that have practical uses.
And newbies to collecting are the only ones who’re actually going to use them rather than place them on display somewhere!
This Scooby-Doo pot holder set is perfect for anyone who loves the show and also happens to love it enough to cook with their memorabilia. I’m sure some of you fit this mold.
34. Mystery Mansion Game
Back when I was a kid, my family and I would always get together and play board games.
It was great and it allowed us to catch up with each other at least once a week.
With this Scooby-Doo board game you can do the same!
Catch and unmask the monster lurking around the mansion and discuss how Scooby-Doo used to be way better back in the day, all while strengthening your familial bonds.
35. Lunchbox & Thermos
This officially licensed lunchbox was first put on shelves in 1973 as a set with the matching Thermos, both depicting best friends Scooby and Shaggy having a generally good time.
Metal lunchboxes are widely recognized in pop culture as the quintessential collector’s item for classic shows and franchises, and Scooby-Doo is no exception!
Any Scooby-Doo aficionado will consider this a badge of honor.
