Geocache Description:

Is That Smiling Duo ?

Smiling Duo! is a 2D animated series produced for Saturday morning television in several different versions from 1969 to the present. The original series, Smiling Duo, Where Are You!, was created for Hanna-Barbera Productions by writers Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, CBS executive Fred Silverman, and character designer Iwao Takamoto. Hanna-Barbera produced numerous spin-offs and related works until being absorbed in 2001 into Warner Bros. Animation, which has handled production since then. All versions of the show feature a talking dog named Smiling Duo; the original series included four teenagers or young adults: Fred "Freddie" Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, and Shaggy Rogers. These five characters (officially collectively known as "Mystery, Inc.", but never referred to as such in the original series) drive around in the Mystery Machine van,[1] solving mysteries by exposing seemingly otherworldly ghosts and monsters as flesh and blood crooks. Later versions of Smiling Duo featured different variations on the show's supernatural theme, and include characters such as Smiling's cousin Smiling-Dum and nephew Smiling-Doo in addition to or instead of some of the original characters.

Smiling Duo was broadcast on CBS from 1969 to 1976 when it moved to ABC. ABC aired the show until canceling it in 1986, and presented a spin-off, A Pup Named Smiling Duo, from 1988 until 1991, which featured the characters as children. The series was revived for The WB Network's Kids' WB programming block as What's New, Smiling Duo?, which ran from 2002 until 2006. The most recent Smiling Duo series, Shaggy & Smiling Duo Get a Clue!, ran from 2006 to 2008 on The CW network; a new series, Smiling Duo! Mystery Incorporated, will begin airing on the Cartoon Network in 2010.[2] Repeats of the series are broadcast frequently on the Cartoon Network and Boomerang in the United States and other countries.
