YouTube Selection: Remember Scooby Doo’s Laugh Track?

NerdSync does a deep dive on, of all things, Scooby Doo's laugh track.

So, like a lot of people my age and probably younger, I grew up on, among other things, old episodes of Scooby Doo.  And that show, in many of its incarnations, had a laugh track.  Why did a cartoon have a laugh track?  I don’t know.  I seem to recall thinking that many times it didn’t even sound like human laughter.

The host of the NerdSync channel, being among other things a big Scooby Doo fan, did a deep dive on the subject.

Yeah, just a casual perusal of NerdSync’s videos shows the guy loves all things Scooby Doo, so why not a talk about the laugh track?  It turns out there was a reason for it.  See below for details.
