These are screen captures of Scooby's first wild take from the very first episode of Hanna-Barbera's "A Pup Named Scooby Doo." The episode title: "A Bicycle Built For Boo."
The storyboard was by Scott Jeralds. Glen Kennedy supervised the animation on the show at Cuckoo's Nest...and Glen personally animated this opening sequence.
"Pup" was my first producing job. I wanted to get it right, right out of the gate. I knew the direction and timing on this would be crucial. So I went to the best guy I knew for the job and I asked him to do it, as a favor. He agreed...and for the next ten days, he locked himself in his office and directed and timed the daylights out of the entire show -- with his metronome swinging back and forth the whole time. To finish the sheets, it took him over a week...and when he was done, he complained that it had been a ton of work. But then he had to admit that he hadn't had so much fun in years.
So who was the uncredited director and sheet timer of the first episode of "A Pup Named Scooby Doo?"
The guy who built and ran the place!
The Academy Award-winning master cartoon director himself...
