  • Scooby-Doo and his human friends may be younger, but the mysteries they solve are still full of danger, humor, and excitement! :!:

    For the first seven years of his existence, "Scooby-Doo" was undeniably the coolest canine cartoon character in pop culture! Nearly every single episode made of his first 2 series was golden, filled with laughter, entertainment, and mystery. But in 1976, some genius idiot (whose hiring into Hanna-Barbera Still remains a mystery) decided to tweak and tinker with the formula of "Scooby-Doo," the results proved to be a humiliating disaster. "The Scooby-Doo Show" failed for multiple reasons. First, Nicole Jaffe no longer voiced Velma (a really Bad warning sign,) the introduction of the forgettable Scooby-Dum (who has never been invited back into another spin-off) and mysteries that weren't exciting Or entertaining. "The Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show" was memorable, but for All the wrong reasons! Scrappy became the most irritating cartoon character of all time for refusing to stop being annoying no matter how hard or how long people begged for the attitude to be cut out! And getting rid of Fred, Daphne, and Velma didn't help matters either, as it quickly hastened the show's demise. "The New Scooby-Doo Show" was a step back in the right direction, as Daphne came back, while Fred and Velma popped in on some occasions. The mysteries were fun and entertaining again, and while Scrappy Doo was still there, his annoying attitude was kept down to a minimum. But then Scooby-Doo Really went awry in 1985 with the misguided and misfired excuse for a mini-series called "The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo." Not only was there the introduction of another annoying character named Flim Flam, and two bumbling ghosts named Bungle and Weird, legendary actor Vincent Van Price was wasted in a role as a creepy good guy who hardly ever got a chance to do his trademark horror scares. And with Scrappy Doo getting to be more annoying than ever, the show was quickly (but not ironically) pulled after 13 episodes. It wasn't until this show got green lighted that Hanna-Barbera finally got back to basics, focusing on Scooby-Doo, his human crew, and all the fun mysteries they have! This is one of them! ;)
