Fred Silverman, the network television executive whom “Scooby-Doo” mystery-solver Fred Jones is named after, is selling his Brentwood home of 20 years for $30 million. And he might just get away with it if not for some meddling kids.

Silverman brought programs like “Scooby-Doo” and “Charlie’s Angels” to television and has worked for all Big Three networks in his nearly 50 years of experience in the field. His 2.6-acre estate is listed by Stephen Shapiro and Richard Ehrlich of Westside Estate Agency.

The residence, purchased in 1988, includes a five-bedroom main house that measures about 8,000 square feet, a swimming pool, pool house, tennis court and a separate four-bedroom guesthouse. According to Shapiro, Silverman uses the latter as an office, and that the Silvermans are moving because they’ve purchased a smaller home in Pacific Palisades.

The Brentwood estate also has a large koi pond with more than 100 fish. The sales price for single-family homes in Brentwood averaged $4.7 million as of the last quarter of 2015. [WSJ]Cathaleen Chen
