OK, here's the answer. Scooby was a seal in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon "Moby Dick and The Mighty Mightor" that aired from 1967-1969. You can see a picture of him at the link below. He didn't speak as far as I can tell, and filled a role similar to Bandit's in Jonny Quest.
The episodes actually aired as 10 minute cartoon shorts...the kind that Boomerang sometimes uses to fill up the remaining minutes in a longer show. In this case I was watching an episode of The New Scooby Doo Movies and this was at the end.
Caught me off guard and I had to listen 2 or 3 times to be sure I heard right. Guess Hanna-Barbera liked the name Scooby!!!
Hmm. Apparently the filters don't like the last name of a famous whale.
If you want the link to work, I guess you'll have to copy-paste it into your browser and then replace "thingy" with the whale's last name.
No issue as I understand the need for filtering content on a site like this. Only sad thing is it actually draws attention to something that probably never would've crossed someone's mind otherwise. Same thing happened once when I posted about another cartoon Josie and The Cats.
Too bad it can't look at the whole phrase/title and not just the letter sequence.

Yeah, you'd think the filtering would recognize words as being part of a longer word or name.
The sad thing is, it actually draws your attention to something you would never have thought of otherwise. Replaces something that wasn't offensive at all with something that it thinks is less offensive, thereby actually inserting something somewhat offensive in the process. Kinda counterproductive.
