Actually I haven't really seen much of this, but it is a classic, so it needs to be included here. I dunno, maybe I watched some reruns of this when I was a kid, I don't really remember. But I've probably seen a bit of it when I got older, and decided I wasn't really that interested. But like I said, it's a classic, and it is essential for everyone to at least watch enough of it to be passingly familiar with the franchise. And this is probably the best of the various Scooby series, as well as being important as a pop culture reference, particularly in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Anyway, as to the plot (though I'm sure you're already aware of this), this group of meddling kids (Freddy, Daphne, Shaggy, and Velma) drive around in a van called the Mystery Machine with their talking dog, Scooby-Doo, investigating ghosts and whatnot, and ultimately revealing sinister plots by various folks who would have gotten away with it, if not for them.
There were a couple of live-action movies based on the series, Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. And there have been a series of animated movies in recent years, which I think were probably all direct-to-video, though some may have premiered on TV. So far the only one I've seen is Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost. Oh, there was also a short TV special called Night of the Living Doo.
