With a Quiet Place finally hitting theaters, and proving a big hit, I wanted to talk about the scariest TV show ever to hit the air.
I love Scooby Doo. It’s terrible, but I love it. It gets along by pure charm, simplicity, and fun factor alone. Plus, it teaches kids basic problem solving skills by presenting them with a simple mystery to solve. With fun monster designs, classic Hannah Barbara art style, what is there to dislike about Scooby Doo?
Aside from that terrible reboot a few years ago, but we don’t talk about that.
But let’s face it, Scooby Doo has gotten… weird. Like, really weird. Primarily because of the straight-to-DVD movies.
You know the ones. The WWE movies (yes, plural), Scooby Doo and KISS (yes, actual KISS) and even the upcoming Supernatural crossover (because that needs to be a thing). Believe it or not, the titles and concepts alone aren’t the crazy parts.
For example, in Scooby Doo and KISS, KISS is not only the Scooby-Gang’s mystery solving rivals, but they’re actually a group of multi-dimensional superbeings (whom have Sailor-Moon style transformation sequences) who fight a space goddess devil thing. No I am not joking, and no you are not stoned.
This is what Scooby Doo has become and I love it. It is the best classic cartoon still on being produced. And I hope it never goes away.
