TV Shows - Scooby Doo

Starting in 1969, this cartoon had four teens and their big, talking dog (the title character) travel around in a (then) funky van called the Mystery Machine and they would almost inevitably stumble into some place that was supposed to be haunted. The supposed leader, the proto-yuppy Freddy and glasses-wearing Velma would try to come up with some intellectual explanation but the high strung quasi-beatnik Shaggy and his constant companion Scooby would have none of that. Usually, these two would get into all kinds of antics while chased by the alleged ghosts and somehow instantly change costumes to buy time (it was a cartoon after all) while the gorgeous Daphne would somehow be in need of rescuing(if she and Freddy hadn't disappeared from the scene). At the very end, Scooby would inevitably unmask the ghost/frauds, Velma and Freddy would explain how the ghost/frauds tried to pull of their stunts and almost always the ghost/frauds would utter that now-classic phrase "and I would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for you meddling kids!". This barebones formula became quite popular and soon even had some famous 'guest voices' playing themselves as ghost/fraud victims. Could this have ever boned the fish? Who here hasn't heard the phrase "If it ain't broke, fix it!"- and the name of Scrappy Doo?

2 The addition of Scrappy was so bad that the phrase Jump The Shark could have been shifted to Add The Scrappy -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:48 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Scrappy Doo sucks. Why does he speak perfect English, and yet Scooby is limited to unintelligible woofing-talk? It's supposed to be SCOOBY'S show! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 When the bad guys got caught at the end of the episode, they always had some bullshit excuse as to why they did it. "I was lonely!" "I don't have any friends..." "My wife left me" OK, so?! That still doesn't give you free reign to go around fucking with random people! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Two words - Scrappy Doo! That annoying mongrel caused the show to vault right over the shark. Any episode of Scooby Doo without Scrappy Doo in it is good to excellent, whereas any episode with Scrappy Doo in it isn't fit for human beings to watch. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:44 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Scrappy seriously needs to go stab himself and jump off a cliff or something. I HATE THAT DOG. Every time I see his face I hate him more. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:43 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 When I got older I realized Shaggy was higher than a kite the entire time they were traveling, which explained 1. Why he thought his dog could talk. 2. Old dudes in Halloween outfits scared the hell out of him. 3. He had the munchies all the time. 3. The rest of the Gang never let him drive (even though its obvious from the outside that it was his van, shag carpet and all baby!!!) 4. He wore the same outfit every episode. 5 He never hit on Velma the right way!!! 6. The puffs of smoke when the van left (them lighting up of course!!!) 7. Where there seemingly endless means of revenue came from to go on these endless trips (they were dealers baby!!!). ON A FINAL NOTE, I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO SEE SCOOBY PUFFING ON A JOINT AS HE UNLOADS A AK47 INTO SCRAPPY'S SHORT STUBBY LITTLE ASS!!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:42 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I'm not convinced that Fred was gay. Keep in mind that whenever they split up to look for clues, Fred always said, "OK, Shaggy...me and (the hot girl in the miniskirt) will go this way; you and (the ugly chick and the dog -- no points for guessing which is which) go the other way." Then, the storyline followed Shaggy, Velma and Scooby, we never got to see what was up with Fred and Daphne until at least ten minutes later. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:41 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 When that annoying little thing named Scrappy came into the picture. He was not only annoying, but seemed to take over the show. Eventually Fred and that hot chick left (probably because that dog got on their damn nerves) -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 When Sonny and Cher showed up on the show I don't remember the particular plot it was so long ago but I remember at the very end Cher got annoyed and stomped her foot causing a house to crumble into ruins. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Scooby Doo of course jumped the shark when that little bastard Scrappy arrived. And just as a refresher: Fred was gay, Daphne was bisexual and a slut, Velma was a dyke and was in love with Daphne. Shaggy and Scooby were two of the most prolific drug users of all time. They had their one special brand aka the Scooby Snack. This groups main objective was to damn "THE MAN" and to prove that they could outsmart them all while permanrntly on trips/vacations with no visible source of revenue...it is a beautiful concept that had to be ruined by an asinine set of producers that had to corrupt this beautiful simplicity... -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Mystery Machine? The only mystery was what was going on in the back of that thing. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 When Scrappy Doo came on the show. I hated him, and I always called him a little rodent, he wasn't a dog and come on why would Scooby Doo have his nephew, wouldn't Scooby's sister/brother have their son? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 11:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I saw one of the later "spin-off" eps in which Shaggy was actually sporting a Mohawk instead of his usual "60s grunge" look. I didn't watch much beyond seeing that atrocity, so it's possible it was supposed to be a disguise of some sort (unless Shaggy had a twin?). If not, I can't even describe what a boning moment that was. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 10:22 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 The original Scooby-doo was more mature down to earth type of show that was down more realistic, then other Scooby-doo spin off's which weren't all that good.When Scrappy-doo was added to the show it was more about him and less about Scooby-doo and the gang.He did save the show but he also ruining at the same time. -- Submitted By: () on May 9, 2012, 10:29 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 This who SHOW sucked!!! It was a Quick Draw-Ruff and Reddy/Archies remix shows shows how horrid the entire seventies animation shows were [the eighties were even worse.] This show was IMO not a classic. -- Submitted By: () on January 9, 2012, 1:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

18 It's no coincidence that Scrappy rhymes with crappy. I also didn't like when it was just Shaggy and Scooby without the others. Wisely, they brought back the entire gang for the newer additions, although those started bugging me because they played on the character stereotypes from the movies (Fred is arrogant, Daphene an airhead, etc.) and not the original series when Fred was courageous but nice and Daphene not necessarily intelligent, but not an airhead either. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 21, 2010, 6:00 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Scooby-Doo Where Are You, The Scooby-Doo Movies, The Scooby-Doo Show, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy Doo, The All-New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show, The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, What's New Scooby-Doo, Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated. Gee, you think that's enough Scooby-Doo shows? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2010, 6:11 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Scooby Doo is one of the best cartoons I have ever watched. The only problem is all the variations. I myself cannot keep track of everything that happens in every cartoon. The real human movies were sloppy aswell. -- Submitted By: (Zingsters) on November 22, 2010, 1:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
