The term “Scooby Gang” appeared on the episode “What’s My Line? (Part 1)” when a teenager named Xander referred to his Sunnydale High School friends as “The Scooby Gang,” This was a reference to the 1960’s cartoon series SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU?/CBS/1969-1972 who like the Sunnydale crowd investigated the supernatural.
The Scooby Gang on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER consists of :
- Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), a vampire hunter (a.k.a. “Slayer”);
- Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan), a computer nerd and witch in training;
- Alexander “Xander” Harris (Nicholas Brendon), a good-natured teen with crush on Buffy;
- Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), a snobby preppie;
- Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), a British school librarian who is Buffy’s Watcher (who trains the Slayer “The Chosen One” in the skills necessary to defeat the creatures of the night).
