Lapp Electric Turns 50 – Week 38 (Accessible, Lancaster Ironworks & Rates)

Over the last few weeks, we have been looking back at Lapp Electric’s 50-year history as well as the year 1969…the year Lapp Electric was founded.

Some of the things that we have learned so far include:

Want to find out more about the year 1969, check out our previous blog posts and check back the remainder of the year as we continue to explore the year 1969.

This week we are going to take a look at an animated television series that debut in 1969…Scooby-Doo.

The “Saturday-morning cartoon series featured four teenagers—Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, and Norville “Shaggy” Rogers—and their talking brown Great Dane named Scooby-Doo, who solve mysteries involving supposedly supernatural creatures through a series of antics and missteps.” 

The series originally aired on CBS before moving to ABC in 1976. “ABC aired variations of the show until canceling it in 1985”.

“In 2013, TV Guide ranked Scooby-Doo the fifth greatest TV cartoon.”

While Lapp Electric is not as well known as the television series Scooby-Doo, our desire is to be a well-known name within Lancaster County and surrounding Counties. It is our desire to be known as your local, trusted Electrician.
