Internet search giant Google on October 31 wished web surfers a happy Halloween with a special Scooby Doo-themed doodle.
Google homepage featured five different drawings from of well-admired talking dog Scooby Doo, a Hanna Barbera cartoon. Letters from the word "Google" scattered throughout the five pictures. Clicking on the logo took users from one drawing to another.
The wretched Shaggy and Scooby scared by ghosts were shown in the fourth drawing. The final colourful drawing showed the team surrounded by smiling pumpkins with the "baddie" captured.
Scooby Doo was the first broadcast on CBS from 1969 to 1976 and its theme tune was performed by Larry Marks. Originally, the show was titled "Mysteries Five".
To begin with, Scooby's voice was provided by voice actor Don Messick, while Top 40 radio DJ Casey Kasem provided voiceover for Shaggy.
Google posts different doodles frequently to celebrate or mark special occasions.
Earlier this fall, the internet search giant celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Flintstones with a doodle. Before that, it marked 30th birth anniversary of the Pac-Man game.
