Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?
For nearly 50 years, the call “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!” has summoned the animated Great Dane wherever help is needed. The USPS, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is now calling on Scooby to appear on a new Forever stamp. Of additional significance, the stamp is part of a campaign highlighting Scooby’s new social responsibility initiative, Scooby-Doo DOO GOOD. His role in this effort is fitting, as Scooby has solved mystery after spooky mystery since his 1969 debut. 


One stamp that is expected to draw more attention, and mail use, than most will be the “Honoring First Responders” single that recognizes the men and women—including firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical service professionals—who respond to critical situations with skill, dedication and uncommon bravery.
The digital illustration on this stamp is a symbolic scene that shows three first responders in profile, as they race into action. From left to right, the first figure is a firefighter carrying an axe, the second is an EMS worker, with the EMS Star of Life visible on her cap, upper arm and emergency bag, and the third figure is a law-enforcement officer shining a flashlight toward unknown danger ahead. The dark background and signs of smoke (in what appears to be a shade of bronze in around the figures) suggest the wide range of situations that demand the immediate attention of a first responder.
