I found this album while out digging around in one of my normal haunts. The most interesting thing about this album is Scrappy Doo on the cover. Right below Scrappy it says “Copyright (c) 1978 Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc”. According to Wikipedia, Scrappy Doo made his first television appearance in 1979. I don’t know if this was the first appearance of Scrappy or not, but it’s definitely an early one. If anyone has any more information about the earliest appearance of Scrappy Doo, I would love to hear from you.
The album contains two stories, one per side: Trouble at Santa’s Workshop, and Mystery of the Missing Santa. All of the voice work was done by the original actors:
Daphne: Heather North
Freddie: Frank Welker
Scooby Doo: Don Messick
Shaggy: Casey Kasem
Velma: Pat Stevens
