For the LONGEST time😩 in the pre-Web era, it killed me trying to figure out who sang Season 2 (my favorite).
Having started watching Scooby via syndicated reruns in 1983 (on WPIX-TV 11 in NYC) --- I had no idea (then) who Austin Roberts was. I just knew I liked the tingly Vox-sounding organ and,thinking: how cool it was to have Davy Jones(!) -the guy I'd thought it was until I found out the answer around 20 years ago(!)- singing a cartoon theme song.
So, every Friday (when, for some reason, the syndication package seemed to reserve the 1970 episodes for airing...1969's were shown Mondays, New Movie two-parters Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1976 ones on Thursdays) I'd be sure to sit in front of our old GE console tv after school and eagerly anticipate the skewed, Addams-Family-looking mansion (which I later learned was a nod to H-B at the time having hired ex-Addams Family writer BILL LUTZ) with the upstairs light on in the window all awash in royal blue coming on the screen😊.
The first (original) version sounds too blah and rushed.

To me the season 2 theme was my favorite theme. It was very upbeat and sounded a lot better in my opinion. I do think that season 1 theme fit better with the overall theme of Where are You. Season 1 kinda had a more serious and foreboding sound compared to season 2 theme. Both are still iconic and amazing.
