Tooniversary: The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller (The Scooby-Doo Show, 1977)

When Scooby-Doo moved to ABC in 1976, Hanna-Barbera began expanding the family by adding two cousins. Scooby-Dum (Daws Butler) was inspired, in a fashion, by Edgar Bergen's Mortimer Snerd. And, then, there is Scooby-Dee.

As you might guess, Scooby-Dee (Janet Waldo) was a play on actress Sandra Dee, but only made one appearance, in 1977's "The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller", in which Dee is making a movie while being stalked by the phony ghost of the week.

You've heard the expression, "kissin' cousins", right? Seems Scooby-Doo-&-Dum tend to forget that Dee is kinfolk, too......

Rating: B.
