Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

It's a new TV show, and I hate to say it, but it's actually smarter than the original shows and movies!

Here's the first episode:







I love the set-up, and the animation, and I hope that it comes to Teletoon in Canada.

I thought it was ok. I like how they poked fun at themselves.

Re: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

I caught the preview showing of the pilot a month or two ago. It has potential, and it's certainly an unusual, deconstructionist, older-skewing take on the premise. This might be a good Scooby-Doo show for people who, like me, are not really big fans of Scooby-Doo. I'm not crazy about the more angular character models, though. And the idea of Velma being involved with Shaggy just creeps me out somehow. I mean, why would a smart girl like her fall for a guy who'd never love her as much as his dog or a well-stocked kitchen? Not to mention one who's a career coward?

Substitute "dog" for Star Trek book/tape/figure collection and you have my marriage. Not so much a coward as pathologically shy at times though.

Wouldn't it be pretty hard to make Scooby-Doo be stupider than the old cartoon?

*remembers live-action movie* Ok so I guess not...

Re: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

^^ The last incarnation of Scooby Doo was pretty bad.. It got completely away from the traditional animation.

And of course, anything that included Scrappy Doo was complete dreck.. I really like the first couple of movies they did a few years ago. "The Witch's Ghost" and "Zombie Island" updated the gang pretty well.

This, however, is by far the greatest episode EVER..

Johnny Bravo Meets Scooby Doo

Re: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

One guy looked like Don Knotts. Ha.

Actually, after Scooby met the celebs, it was all over.

I don't totally hate Scrappy Doo, either. It can be argued, Scooby and Shaggy were so chicken shit scared of anything that it almost required teaming them with a hot-headed twerp to keep them in the action.

Actually, without Don Messick...Scooby just never sounded quite right.

Re: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

I HATED when it turned into the Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy run from the stupid monsters show... I liked the fact that the gang always solved the mysteries rather than ran away from them. It got marginally better when Velma returned (or was it Daphne?), but the writing was on the wall then..
