As of writing, Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated has concluded its 52 episode, two season run on Cartoon Network and has thus completed its story.
I won’t mince words here, Mystery Incorporated is the most creative re-imagining of the Scooby Doo cartoon premise to date. A wonderfully produced, beautifully drawn and animated sweeping story that never sacrificed the core comedy appeal of its legacy, while also never letting gags interfere with good characterization and quality storytelling. It was a show that could have its cake and let Scooby eat it too: never allowing its goofy premise and characters to undermine scope.
Yes, you can have an intelligent, well written tale about four quirky teenagers and their talking dog. The finale in particular is a fantastic example of combining the classic “power of friendship” appeal of adventure cartoons with imaginative horror and stakes the likes of which seem more at home in the Cthulhu Mythos.
The only downside to this cartoon’s sheer glory is that any subsequent entries in the Scooby Doo franchise will be judged against Mystery Inc.’s measuring stick and will have their work cut out playing catch-up.  If you haven’t checked this show out as of yet, I highly advise you to do so. Scooby Doo Mysery Inc can be purchased in the American Itunes store and viewed on Netflix.
Finally, in a world where so many great cartoons have been very evidently cut off before their intended end (GLTAS, Motorcity, Symbionic Titan, GI Joe Renegades, Tron Uprising), it is so wonderful to have a show which got to carry itself to its epic conclusion.
