did nobody look at the link?
Mr Takamoto was a vice-president at Warner Bros Animation at the time of his death, caused by heart failure.

He said he created Scooby-Doo after talking to someone who looked after Great Danes.

that alone would certainly suggest him to be asian.

Much as when Mr. Barbera died, I can't say that I connect much with Takamoto's work. I hated both the old Hanna Barbera cartoons and Scooby Doo. But it's still a shame to see him pass. These days 81, though long lived, is still a touch younger than one could wish to die at…for me, anyhow.

Luckily they caught the guy who murdered him. It was Old Man Withers, owner of the haunted amusement park.

I like Scooby less and less the more I see it, but it was a still an important little piece of my childhood. Thanks, Mr. Takamoto.

Maybe his ghost will be in the new runs of the show…oh wait thats right none of the ghost were ever real…they were always some disgruntled person who loved to make Halloween costumes. oh well. a 21 gun salute to a man who beat the entire system of Hollywood by making a poorly animated, low budget, redundant cartoon that never had a different plot every single episode! a genius in his own right!

I've always loved Scooby, and I still do. Love the old series with the same plot every episode, hate the newer series, with REAL monsters, scrappy doo, better animation and some of them don't even contain all of the gang!
Thanks you, Takamoto Doggy Dog, for making an incredible memorable character in animation history :)

But even better than the old Scooby-series: The Jhonny Bravo Episode where he meets the Scooby-gang… plain hilarious!
