Scooby Doo poll



  • I've been thinking a lot about Scooby Doo lately. It occurs to me that I honestly don't know if it's good or rubbish. What do you think? It's certainly got a meta vibe now, what with getting referenced on Carpet Remnant World, and with the new line of 'dark' adult-orientated comics from DC (https://getcomics.info/?s=scooby+doo). Also, one time, a girlfriend of mine got me a 'Mystery Machine' full of candies, because she thought I'd like it - AND I DID.

    But at the same time, it's certainly less sophisticated than a lot of its peers. That is, any Warner Bros cartoon. But then, maybe simpler things are better, and more comforting?

    Also, Shaggy. What's all that about? A stoner hippy slacker who never actually makes any references to weed, or liberal politics, and by virtue of going on so many ghost-busting missions actually works quite hard. Is that cool or just incongruous?

    Also, Scooby himself. There was a real Great Dane where I lived as a kid, and he was just a complete son of a bitch: always barking at night and waking everyone up, chasing other dogs, doing his massive dirties everywhere. I mean, should I just look past that?

    And what of the Scooby Doo films -- Monsters Unleashed, etc. Has anyone seen them? Are they any good?

  • @Indrid-Cold I dunno what anyone else has got to say but this show was my jam when I was like 4 or 5, but as I think of it now I guess my feelings for the show has definitely changed..mainly cuz of the predictable and repetitive stuff. I've heard most of the people say that the older version was lit as compared to the new one(I haven't seen the older one tho)



  • @Indrid-Cold Genuinely unsure. I know I don't like the newer cartoon I've seen, for a few reasons. I didn't like an older series when they started using real monsters, not understanding what the show is about. And I know I found the original cartoon's predictability tiresome even as a child. I think I even managed to lose interest and fall asleep during the Scooby Doo-Batman crossover which I used to have on DVD.

    Yet I don't think I've ever minded it, even the films. They're harmless, simple fun. There is nothing great about any of the series, but nothing inherently bad either. That's quite an achievement.



  • @Matt_Aranha You've put your finger on. It is a weird achievement to be so ubiquitous, and long-running, and yet it's neither good or bad.

    Maybe that's why I'm starting to respect it. And respect is very close to love, in this life.

    But I didn't know they were using real monsters now. Aren't humans monstrous enough? Radovan Karadžić, etc.

    I think the latest cartoon incarnation has gone back to it having a natural phenomenon or shifty human behind each mystery, but there was definitely one version where they were fighting/catching real ghosts/ghouls etc.

    They sucked😅!



  • @Anastasia-Smith Mmm. Repeatable / predictable isn't necessarily a bad thing. I still watch the A-Team every teatime on Five Star, and still get over-excited like a kid, which is FAR from ideal when trying to digest potato croquettes.

    Thanx for the heads up on the movies, tho. I was about to shell out £0.50 @ CEX.

    I woulda agreed with you on this point if I were a kid...ig tastes definitely differ and from what I've seen people don't usually go for the predictable stuff..nevertheless a kid would definitely enjoy this show I'll take that!

    Np.



  • @Indrid-Cold nah mostly I hate dogs too . but I was telling a kindest dog I have ever see
