Animation writer and CEO Joe Ruby, who created cartoons such as Scooby-Doo with his partner Ken Spears, has passed away at the age of 87.

Ruby and Spears have created series such as Scooby-Doo

At Hanna-Barbera, Ruby and Spears have created series such as Scooby-Doo, Where Are You ?, Dynomutt and Jabberjaw.

After his death of natural causes in Westlake Village, California, Sam Register, President of Warner Bros Animation and Blue Ribbon Content said, “Joe Ruby made Saturday mornings special for so many kids, including me. He was one of the most prolific creators in our industry who brought us some of the most valuable characters in animation. ”

Scooby-Doo premiered on CBS in 1969 as a Softer series

Scooby-Doo premiered on CBS in 1969 as a Softer series, in part in response to complaints about violence in cartoons like Space Ghost.

Working with character creator Iwao Takamoto, Ruby and Spears tried a number of approaches, such as getting the characters into a rock band, before settling on the combination of Freddie, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and a Great Dane called Scooby-Doo.

The original series lasted until 1976 and spawned many theater series and film reboots.

Ruby started at Walt Disney Productions. After serving in the Navy and working on television, he met Spears at Hanna-Barbera Productions.

The duo then worked as writers for Sid and Marty Krofft Television Productions and Depatie-Freleng, where they created The Barkleys and The Houndcats.

They formed their own studio in 1977 with Ruby-Spears Productions, including Mister T, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Superman and Thundarr the Barbarian.
