This is definitely one of the best classic series in animation. You had four kids (the hunk, the beauty, the smart chick and the supposed stoner) joined by a huge cowardly dog who go around solving mysteries all over the country in a green, flower covered van.

The people loves Scooby and Scooby loves the people. Definitely worth being number three on this list.
