Its Scooby Doo, please do not apply linear time to the preceedings.

It is canonical that in-universe, the world goes through frequent reboots of reality, with the only person consistently retaining memories between each reboot being Harlan Ellison.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

An Aspect of Scrappy Doo is that he was almost a good character, but he was hosed up by the cartoon censorship of the time. He was supposed to be actually effective, but the execs thought that that was a bad influence on children so they neutered him after promising the head writer that they would not. I can't find the article that explained this though, or I'd link it.

Scooby Doo: Mystery Inc was really great, and is the only Scooby Doo show that has a running body count and also has a story that you could believe ties in to Twin Peaks, and another that ties together the origins of Dynomutt with Jonny Quest. My only complaint is I wish the one episode where they unmask the Funky Phantom didn't turn out to be a dream sequence.

Don't forget that the hero school in OK KO has canonically beaten Luna Nova in sportsball. Ian wields all the power and no one can, or wants to, stop him.

I had to look up what that was. I haven't seen Little Witch Academia, but the one thing I do know is that they did draw both Ian and Rebecca Sugar into the series (multiple times I guess):




Also, in trying to reserch that, I found out they also drew in both Dipper and Mable as well as Connie from Steven Universe into a crowd scene one time.

Scooby-Doo can talk because he's the descendant of a race of extradimensional beings who came to ancient humans in the form of animals such as the cats of Egypt or Sun Wukong.

Also, the extradimensional beings in question are pretty much identical to the unnamed creature from Stephen King's It, down to the thing where one of them is buried beneath California, spreads evil in cycles throughout history, and we get flashbacks to various previous historical mystery gangs who were provoked into forming by its evil machinations, e.g. a gang of mystery-solving Gregorian monks accompanied by a talking donkey. The show even ends with a big finale where the mystery gang has to go underneath their home town to confront the extradimensional monster that has fomented centuries of evil before they finally defeat it and break the cycle.

Scooby can talk because of his ancestral links to this ancient evil, and all the previous talking animals were inevitably corrupted by its influence and turned on their mystery-solving teen friends.

It was a wacky show. Not always great, but extremely ambitious, and definitely a lot of fun.

And, probably spoilers, one of them that still lived was a talking owl who used its speech capacity to control Nazi robots.

There's also an episode where Scooby has a dream about the gang going to a mystery solvers' convention, and they have to solve a mystery with all the other Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo ripoffs like Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman, and the Funky Phantom.

I think the issue is that while that character was originally voiced and is heavily modeled off of Price, he's still technically an original character, but Harlon Ellison was just Harlon Ellison in MI.

Why? The Chinese government usually doesn't try to cover up the existence of Tibet. They just claim it's a Chinese district. Unless he straight up says "Hi, I'm Flimflam from the autonomous country Tibet. China is a foreign evil, please look up the Tiananmen Square Massacre." it will probably be fine.

Full disclaimer, I don't know who that is.

Hey man there's no point in subposting in this thread that like maybe only 20 people post in.

And I maintain that yes, China just might take affront to a live action TV show on Netflix that depicts a Tibetan genocide.

I don't know who the target audience for a conclusion movie to 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo is


but it's me
It is the series that gave us the closest we'll ever get to Vincent Price as Dr. Strange. (Maurice is doing a helluva impression even though it sounds like he is also doing his Orson Welles voice)

I actually like most Scooby Doo things honestly, I kind of grew up in the golden area of the mid to late 90s where you had all the notable old stuff showing up on CN, A Pup Named Scooby Doo and then the first 4 Scooby Doo Direct to Video movies that I watched constantly (Zombie Island being the best and honestly legit creepy at parts).

Kind of fell to the wayside through the 00s until Mystery Inc came along and is legit one of my favorite cartoons of all time.

It has one of the best voice casts of a show other than something like Justice League Unlimited

Scooby Doo's main advantage is that it's a property people both have a lot of nostalgia for, while also being totally willing to admit that it's really dumb.

It's also super malleable which is why it's able to cross over with literally everything

WE ARE SMART

I must have been at just the wrong age to enjoy Scooby Doo. When I was in my prime cartoon-watching years, they weren't producing any new Scooby Doo series, but Cartoon Network was playing Scooby Doo for what felt like 8 hours a day every day and I always kind of resented it for not showing shows I liked more often.

Caught up with Voltron, started the Dragon Prince.

I'm actually impressed at how CGI animation has developed to the point that it can be a reasonably good imitation of, well, an ATLA style "anime", especially in the action sequences. I'm way less impressed by the choice to only animate key frames during dialog scenes. The lack of fluidity reminds me more of early Archer more than anything else.

Also the intro was such a confusing loving infodump that I'm not sure what's going on besides elves and humans hate each other and there was a dragon but it's dead now. But I get the impression that's all I really need to know?
