Online Scooby Doo Games
America’s favorite cartoon canine Scooby Doo first appeared on a Saturday morning cartoon show called Scooby Doo, Where are You? Created by Iwao Takamoto for Hanna-Barbera Productions, this Scooby Doo cartoon series premiered in September 1969 and since then several spinoffs entertained viewers year after year. Almost all past and present cartoon shows feature Scooby Doo and his friends: Shaggy, Fred Jones, Velma and Daphne.
Scooby Doo cartoon shows usually kick-start with a supernatural theme, where all five friends (collectively known as “Mystery, Inc.") solve mysteries, debunk any supernatural phenomena and catch the culprit. Some shows feature Scooby Doo’s cute nephew Scrappy Doo helping, or rather putting them in trouble in solving a supernatural phenomena. Nevertheless, Scooby Doo cartoon shows are always a treat to watch, especially when our cartoon canine accidentally solves a mystery!
Our favorite canine character has also appeared in numerous console and PC video games. Scooby Doo Case Files, Monsters Unleashed 2 and the latest, Scooby Doo! First Frights are some of the best games developed for Windows and console platforms. The first Scooby Doo game was developed for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 systems in 1986. Numerous free Scooby Doo online games have been developed for kids, including popular titles such as Escape from the Coolsonian, Creepy Cave and Curse of Annubis. These games present a nice mix of adventure and logic puzzles and are very different from other cartoon-specific online games.

Scooby Doo: Escape from the Coolsonian
A brilliant first person point-and-click room escape game, Escape from the Coolsonian features several logic-based puzzles. Players have to solve a series of inventory puzzles to help Scooby Doo escape the Coolsonian museum. There are puzzles ranging from unlocking safes to solving intricate patterns made from Egyptian hieroglyphs. Some require certain objects to unlock rooms and safes. Gamers have to explore rooms and use their brains to sleuth an escape.
Certain puzzles might be difficult and hence a Hint box is located at the right hand corner of the screen. You can also save a level once all the puzzles in that level are solved successfully. The game can become seriously challenging once you complete the first two levels. With excellent 2D visuals and creepy sound, Escape from Coolsonian is one of the most delightful free online Scooby Doo games.

Scooby Doo: Creepy Cave
Most Scooby Doo games online are interactive puzzlers to the core. Creepy Cave is another great game that requires sleuthing skills and brains to help him and Shaggy escape the scary cave. Players have to look for valuable clues, hunt down useful items and use them on objects to find a safe escape route. A third person point-and-click online game,
Creepy Cave has got good visuals, but the on-screen objects are too small to observe. You would need sharp eyes along with good brains to solve an inventory-based puzzle. Nevertheless, Creepy Cave can be a great online puzzler to play on your netbooks.
