Co-Creator of Scooby-Doo dies at 82

Ken Spears

If you are a 80s or 90s kid then I can guarantee that Scooby-Doo was a highlight of your childhood. The comical quests left you hooked to the television wondering what’s going to happen next. It sure was a treat.

Ken Spears who happened to be the co-creator of the show died on November 6th 2020 at the age of 82. Not many people get to see such an age. He probably interacted with his great grandkids. He grew up in Los Angeles where he met Joe Ruby. Together they made what came to be known as Scooby-Doo for CBS.

They created their own studio much later dubbed “Ruby-Spears Production” which solidified their friendship. In this same year, a few months ago, Joe Ruby also passed on at 87 which leaves the Scooby-Doo family really disheartened.

But as they say, everything happens for a reason and we are confident that they both lived their lives to the fullest.
