A while ago, I mentioned on the blog that Jordan Farrell was in the process of making a Scooby-Doo fan film entitled "Scooby-Doo! The Backstage Rage." That film has now been released, and can be watched here! The film is sort of like a Scooby fanfiction story, which is based on the original "The Backstage Rage" episode from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? (with many scenes paralleling the original episode), except in stop-motion animation form. The stop-motion animation element of this film reminds me a lot of those old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials, for those that remember them. The rest of this post is an essentially spoiler-free review of this fan film.
Firstly, it should be said that the film does a great job with the horror aspect! The film is rated PG-13, and definitely earns that rating by having almost a sinister vibe at times. The Puppet Master is truly an evil villain who has the intent of turning his victims into puppets. The music that's played whenever he comes out of the shadows is super creepy, and I'll admit surprised me a couple of times when it was played after a dead silence! The Puppet Master has a very larger than life presence throughout the entire film, which really made it feel like a horror film.
The comedy was also really good! The film's humor was definitely more quirky in places, and I really liked that! The random sound effects at points particularly made me laugh, such as the "KO!" sound effect played when Shaggy knocks Fred out with the trash can, and my favorite, the part where Velma gets hit by the sandbag and a voice saying "That was intense bruh!" is played lol. And speaking of "bruh," I quite enjoyed Officer John saying "man" and "bruh" all the time, just as it's so uncharacteristic of a police officer.
I think my favorite piece of comedy though was with Shaggy's dad at getting caught by the cops at his weed booth at the Peace and Love Convention, and saying "Zoinks, it's the fuzz!" and getting thrown in jail. I would have liked to see more of that storyline, that was really funny! Though Flim Flam giving Shaggy a Customer Suspension Card ("for being a complete douche") was a close second haha. Also, one question the film posed was is Lotsa Luck Joy Juice supposed to be some kind of drug? There's one scene where the cops stare Flim Flam down at his booth, and he just stares nervously which made me wonder.
Oh, and I have to mention my one other favorite joke, the culprit (I won't ruin it by saying the name) exclaiming "I'm free!" and then the cop saying "And now you're under arrest!" Perfect irony there lol.
Character-wise, I thought all the characters were really good! In particular, Shaggy's voice actor really did an amazing job in the role. One criticism I had with the characters though is the dialogue. At times, the dialogue seemed a bit stilted. One example that happens a couple times is that a character will speak, and then there will be a delay before the next character says something, which makes it seem off. Also, I felt a few of the lines were delivered a bit awkwardly sometimes, which makes them a bit comedic where I don't think they were supposed to be. Three of my favorite examples (with all respect to Jordan and the creators, I just found the awkwardness a bit amusing): "You've gotta be crappin' me, man!", "So...how's our date going for you tonight? We've been together two years now after all." and "Oh, by the way, do you want to marry me?
I liked the addition of the Hex Girls quite a bit, and it was fun to have Thorn be a main part of the storyline (in multiple ways). I really liked her voice actor! Thorn and Shaggy being a couple was cute, I definitely ship it! Thorn hitting on Shaggy sort of reminded me of Sally and Linus from Peanuts. Speaking of which, I thought the characters' faces being colored red with embarrassment looked pretty similar to how it is in the Peanuts specials, which is cool! The characters' faces when angry also reminded me of Peanuts a bit. The cougar sound effect whenever someone got angry was very quirky, but cool! I really dug it haha.
I also thought the animation was really good considering it was all hand-drawn (I'm presuming). I know a common argument against the series Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! is that the designs are bad, and I unfortunately could see people saying that about this film too. However, if you let yourself get past the fact that it doesn't look anything like normal animation, I think you'll find it's a pretty fun watch. And also, kudos to whoever did the drawing for this film, as nearly 3 hours is a lot of animating to do!
Lastly, what I thought the film did a really good job of is references to old Scooby material. There are references galore in this film, so many in fact that a couple of the characters mentioned in the credits were ones I didn't even notice. You can definitely tell the effort put in to make some cool references. And speaking of references, I thought the writing of the film plot-wise was really brilliant in how it used aspects of the original "The Backstage Rage" episode to shape this plot. The doorman being a puppet being turned into the Puppet Master turning people into puppets was a really cool reimagining of this.
Overall, I think this was a really fun watch and would definitely recommend giving it a try. Don't be turned off by the stop motion animation being different than what you're used to, because there is a lot of cool content here and a really good plot. Kudos to Jordan Farrell and everyone involved in making this film! And thanks so much to him for putting the site's name in the credits, twice! That was super sweet and I really appreciate it.
Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers is currently the only Scooby-Doo film not to feature Frank Welker voicing at least one character.
When Scooby and his parents reunite at the Circus Fantastique in "The Ghouliest Show on Earth," the exact same animation of their ballet greeting is completely reused from "Wedding Bell Boos." This is despite the fact that Momsy and Dada Doo were entirely redesigned for this series. This causes them to look strangely different than any other point in the episode for this one scene only.
This can be seen in the comparison below:
A lot of people remember shows like Josie and the Pussycats, Goober and the Ghost Chasers and the Funky Phantom as "Scooby Clones" because they followed the same man-in-a-mask, mystery-solving format that the classic cartoon canine did.
However, few people remember those years in the late 70s and early 80s where the Flintstones copied this same formula.
The very first time The Flintstones experimented with a spookier format was around Halloween in 1964, before Scooby began. There was a three episode stretch from the weeks of October 29 - November 12, 1964, in which Fred and Barney got involved in "spooky" encounters; the first of which being the episode "A Haunted House is Not a Home," in which Fred inherits a haunted house from his deceased uncle, and Barney and him spend the night. The second episode, "Dr. Sinister," is a parody of James Bond (Jay Bondrock, as he's called in the episode) where Fred and Barney are kidnapped by Dr. Sinister and his monster guards who are looking to destroy the world. This is sort of a monster mashup with James Bond, and the guards are never called monsters, but all of them (along with Dr. Sinister) are green.
The third episode would later become very influential into the main topic of this article. Simply titled "The Gruesomes," the third and final episode of that 1964 run was a parody of the Addams Family, which had just begun a few months ago. The episode involves The Gruesome Family moving next to the Flintstones, who are a very odd family with a house full of monsters. One of the best lines from that episode is the neighbor introducing himself "Hi, I'm Weirdly!", to which Fred replies "I was just about to say that!" Still makes me chuckle to this day.
After this three episode run, the Flintstones ditched this spooky element and went back to its traditional formula. The Gruesome Family does appear in one other episode of the original series, entitled "The Hatrocks and the Gruesomes," but they are merely used briefly in the episode for exposition purposes and the episode does not have the same spooky vibe. They also would appear in the 1972 spinoff show "The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show" for one episode, though the wife, Creepella, was completely redesigned and was voiced by someone who made her sound like more of a socialite than a monster, which was unfortunate. They may have been going for a Morticia-like voice here from the Addams Family.
You could also include "Monster Fred" in this "spooky" themed run of episodes, which aired five weeks before three episodes began to, though it had more to do with mad science so it's always been in its own separate category to me.
In 1979, The Flintstones spin-off show The New Fred & Barney Show rebranded the series a bit, which can be summed up by the line in the intro "full of lots and fun and mystery!" Yep, that's right, The Flintstones solve mysteries in this series...well, sort of! Out of the 17 episodes in the series, five had to do with monsters or mysteries. The first episode of the series, "Sand Witch" involves Fred and Barney's car breaking down in a haunted forest while about to go bowling, and they run into a witch who eats humans. There wasn't really much mystery to speak of, and it's more of a comedy romp in the vein of some of the Richie Rich / Scooby-Doo Show shorts. The second episode "Haunted Inheritance" was sort of a crappy remake of "A Haunted House is Not a Home" (the episode mentioned above from 1964), in which Fred and Barney inherit a haunted house but are in competition this time with some other people. There are no ghosts to speak of until the last few minutes of the episode. The only ghost that appears in the last few minutes of episode is very obviously fake, I think it's just some cheesy guy with a sheet over his head or something.
During the next few episodes, the formula changed a bit and they switched back to more classic adventures. In episode 6, "Blood Brothers," a new neighbor named Rockula (a parody of Dracula) moves to town and wants to become "blood brothers" with Fred, who suspects his new neighbor is a vampire. The episode was much more whimsical, illustrated by the fact that Rockula's wife is named "Poopsie." Another break was taken from this formula for the next 4 episodes of The New Fred and Barney Show.
Episode 11, "Stoneage Werewolf," returns to this spooky formula and is one of my favorite episodes of The Flintstones. The mystery and plotline itself is very detailed and cool, but you can tell some liberties are taken with the dialogue in some places. Some lines are a bit forced and goofy, like characters talking to themselves in order to build exposition. Content-wise, this episode features Fred and Barney going on a fishing trip, but end up having to retreat on a nearby island after a thunderstorm begins. Fred and Barney stay in the island's only house, owned by a kindly man who happens to be a werewolf. They don't realize this however, which makes for some spooky fun. There's also the amusing scene in this episode where the Hanna-Barbera background painters messed up and accidentally painted a whole scene as nighttime, but then, after the commercial break, this scene which was supposed to take place at the same time turned into day for no apparent reason. Oh, how I love those sorts of animation errors haha.
The twelfth and final episode of the series to feature a "spooky" vibe is called "Fred & Barney Meet the Frankenstones." The episode involves an overworked Fred and Barney touring a condorstonium (condominium) run by Frank and Hidea Frankenstone. There are odd things like a body-building machine that builds real monsters, and Atrocia, the Frankenstones' daughter whose only dialogue is cackling for a few seconds, then speaking unintelligible gibberish and cackling again. Not sure why the writers found this so funny, but this "joke" is repeated at least 10 times throughout the episode. This episode is all over the place, but there is some really creepy stuff in this episode, like Hidea's gigantic eyes!!! (pictured above)
This opened up the doors to "The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone," an hour-long television film in 1979 which featured the Flintstones winning an all-expense paid trip to Rockula's castle for the night. There is no continuity in this film to the previous Rockula episode, and Count Rockula is played up as a sinister Dracula-esque figure of legend, rather than a random vampire. The movie, which is my favorite Flintstones film of all time, has Fred, Wilma, Betty and Barney going to Rockula's castle unsuspecting that Rockula has awoken from his 500 year sleep along with Frankenstone. Rockula believes that Wilma is his long-lost bride, and tries to reclaim her while killing off Fred. Even if a lot of it is just a monster chase, it's still really enjoyable and I always try to watch it every Halloween. Frankenstone also has a different, deeper voice than he did in the previous episode, but the design is kept (as well as for Rockula). Frankenstone would later get back his original voice actor.
The 1980s would continue with this formula, and really latched onto the Frankenstones. The 1980 special, The Flintstones' New Neighbors once again lacks some continuity and has the Frankenstones move to town again. It's the same basic plot as "Fred & Barney Meet the Frankenstones" but this time, they move next door to The Flintstones in a spooky house which parallels that of "The Gruesomes" from 1964. Frank Frankenstone gets his original voice actor back, and has two kids with different names than the first time (they were named Atrocia and Creepy in the original episode). This time, they are named Frankenstub/Stubby and Hidea, the latter of which is originally the wife's name. Frank's wife was renamed Oblivia, and has a different voice. Oblivia has a different voice actor than the original wife, Hidea, did. I'm honestly not sure which voice I like better. Oblivia's comes off as more down-to-Earth, whereas Hidea's is a bit of an indescribably creepy voice. The new daughter, Hidea, does not have the same odd quirk of giggling and mumbling gibberish, and speaks in full sentences. Frankenstub has the same voice actor as Creepy in the original episode. But to get to the heart of the episode, Fred initially dislikes the Frankenstones and even pulls cruel pranks on them (i.e. putting up a sign that says "This way to the Freak Show!" pointing to their house), but they end up having to work together when Pebbles falls into a pterodactyl's nest.
Clearly, they liked this idea, as The Frankenstones would continue to appear in a segment of The Flintstones Comedy Show. The continuity from the New Neighbors special sticks, except for Fred and Frank being friends. In this series, Fred hates Frank Frankenstone once again, and Frank Frankenstone oddly hates him as well. Frank has a new voice actor, who IMO is pretty bad and just sounds like an angry guy rather than a creepy monster as he was intended to be. Frankenstub was written out in favor of a new "normal" son (similar to Marilyn in The Munsters), who Pebbles becomes friends with much to Fred's annoyance. Pebbles is also an adult now, despite the fact that she was a child when they moved here in the New Neighbors special.
In another segment not involving the Frankenstones in this same series, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm actually solve mysteries with the man-in-a-mask format! Admittedly, I've only seen two of these episodes, one called "Ghost Sitters" where they solve the mystery of a ghost cowboy, and another called "Monster Madness" which I vaguely remember had something to do with a baseball going into a haunted house with various monsters. Someday I may have to treat myself and pay for a month of the Boomerang streaming service, as all the episodes are on there.
Anyways, that was it for this article. I always thought it was interesting how such an acclaimed show like The Flintstones found the need to copy Scooby, but nonetheless it made those episodes interesting for me to watch as a devoted Scooby fan.
For those that say a Scooby-Doo type gang of mystery solving kids could never happen in real life, think again.
In Roseville, CA last Sunday, September 30, a 97 year old woman went missing, and the local police announced the missing person case over social media and loudspeakers around the town.
Just when the situation seemed hopeless, four kids that were 10 and 11 decided to take it upon themselves to search for the missing woman. Pictured above, these kids (from left to right) are Makenna Rogers (age 10), Hope Claiborne (age 11), Kashton Claiborne (age 11), and Logan Hultman (age 10).
Hopping on their bikes, the kids spent over two hours looking for this missing woman. Suddenly, they locate her and immediately call 911 to report their find, and wait with her to make sure the first responders are able to safely bring the frazzled old lady back to her home.
Back home, they have a mini-party with goldfish crackers to celebrate their heroic act.
You can read the full story on CNN. Thanks so much to Greybishop for sending me this story!
Here are the results from last week's poll, which asked what people's favorite era of Scooby-Doo films were.
Live action films: 4
LEGO films: 0
Thanks to everyone who participated in last week's poll!
I quite enjoyed this episode overall. I'll admit I was surprised how much Batman was played up for comedy, but nonetheless it was still an entertaining half-hour.
Atmospherically, this felt a lot different than previous episodes of Guess Who. I've heard that this episode was the series premiere in other countries, which leads me think maybe it was made first. I enjoyed the overall location of Wayne Manor in terms of it feeling sufficiently spooky.
Batman was an enjoyable guest star, even if he was a bit zanier this time around. I really enjoyed that they used a different villain than Joker and Penguin this time, especially given the monstrous qualities of the Man-Bat, so I was a bit disappointed that it just turned out to be the Joker again.
In terms of the characters, I thought Daphne's relation to Alfred was unnecessary. The gang being related to every single guest star on the planet doesn't seem necessary, and I wish the writers would come up with a different reason for the gang to be teaming up with these guest stars. Scooby's monologue-length comments in this episode really irritated me. I've mentioned it before, but it's so out-of-character for him to be speaking constantly. Maybe this is just me, but it bothered me that Scooby was so upset over his phone breaking, and the fact that he had a phone in the first place. It feels weird to think of Scooby obsessed with his cell phone haha.
Overall, this episode was pretty solid though it wasn't my favorite of the series. The reference to the first episode's title was fun, though the extraneous comma in the title card ("What a Night, for a Dark Knight!") is odd.
I'm not sure if this is truly the end of season 1, or if Boomerang is just calling it that. I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but with Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Cartoon Network claimed that episode 13 was the end of season 1, and episode 14 began season 2. Officially, season 1 of SDMI lasted 26 episodes, so I'm not sure if that's the case here too.
Let's update the scoreboard for one last time this season!
1. Elementary, My Dear Shaggy! (Favorite episode)
2. When Urkel-Bots Go Bad!
3. What a Night, for a Dark Knight!
4. Attack of the Weird Al-osaurus!
5. The Cursed Cabinet of Professor Madds Markson!
6. Revenge of the Swamp Monster!
7. The Scooby of a Thousand Faces!
8. Now You Sia, Now You Don't!
9. Quit Clowning!
10. Peebles' Pet Shop of Terrible Terrors!
11. Ollie Ollie In-come Free!
12. The Fastest Food Fiend!
13. A Mystery Solving Gang Divided (Least favorite episode)
Overall, my season-end thoughts are that while I enjoyed the series, I felt the writers were trying a bit too hard sometimes to be nostalgic and it just didn't work for me. I would really like to see them try something new, or explore some new aspect of the franchise rather than just trying to make it a carbon copy of how the original show was. I don't think we'll get it with this series, but I truly hope that they choose to branch off into a different direction in the future, even if just slightly.
Sadly, today is the last day of the fan spotlights, but we’re not going out with a whimper.
Today, I’m excited to introduce you to one of the coolest, most badass people I know: the one and only Amelia! Amelia is an awesome goth who took inspiration from the Hex Girls and Scooby-Doo in becoming her perfectly unique gothy self. Amelia is a huge Scooby fan who I met a few years ago now. Over the years, she’s shared with me how influential Scooby has been in her life - from shaping her goth identity to learning English from the show! She’s also taught me quite a bit about the goth culture, which is super cool to learn about and you all should read more into it too!
So just how cool is Amelia? As I hinted yesterday, she once drove her (now) daughter-in-law to stop and stare in awe, simply remarking “She’s so cool.” when they first met. See for yourself what a badass, empowered woman Amelia in her fan profile below:
1. What is your name?
2. How did you get into Scooby-Doo?
I’m Danish and when I was a kid my father worked abroad a bit in America. Often when he came back to Denmark he’d bring either official VHS tapes or recordings of cartoons back for me to watch. Since he saw it as a good way to help my learn English, since English is the world language he considered it important I should learn it (very helpful considering later on in life I did marry an Englishman). One of those cartoons was Scooby Doo, and quickly grew to be my favorite out of them. Though I had also seen some episodes of Scooby Doo and movies on TV in Danish, but the English/original voice acting was superior so I preferred it. So along with some other shows Scooby Doo effectively taught me the basics of speaking English, inadvertent on its creator’s parts but I’m grateful none the less haha.
3. What is your favorite Scooby-Doo episode and film? Why?
I don’t really have a favorite episode, there’s some I prefer more than others obviously but off the top of my head I couldn’t pick one out as a definitive favorite. Would be from either Where Are You, SD Show or Be Cool Scooby Doo though, as those are my favorite series. I can for the films though, Witch’s Ghost is easily my favorite movie. With Ghoul School and Zombie Island following closely behind it in second and third place. Partially since I love the aesthetic of the film. The backgrounds are beautiful, especially the autumnal scenes we get in the clips of the gang driving to Oakhaven (the piece of music played there really sells it). The night scenes are so well done too, it actually looks dark at night unlike in a lot of other animation. The music, both background and songs (the Hex Girls’s songs especially), are fantastic too but that’s a given for the four movies of that era. And it had a good contrast/balance of having a fake ghost and a real ghost. And it did introduce us to/create the Hex Girls, and they were definitely an influence on me ending up as a goth. I can remember as a kid seeing them, mainly Thorn, and thinking “I want to be like that when I grow up.” They were just so cool! Well be like that and Morticia Addams from the 60s Addams Family, who I’m definitely more influenced by as an adult. Still have that Hex Girls influence though, since a few years back I did get dental prosthetic fangs. Which provide amusement when I get asked by people if my teeth are really like that lol.
4. What ways are you involved in the Scooby fandom online?
I’m not really that involved honestly. Most of the interaction I have with fellow Scooby fans is just talking about it in emails with friends online. Never been that into forums much.
5. In your opinion, what is the best series or era of Scooby?
I’m going to say the late 90s/early 2000s era. I’m a bit biased, given that’s what came out when I was a kid, but given that’s when the franchise was rebooted and has been a consistent franchise since then (eg movies every year, regular stuff done with the franchise, etc) I do believe that. Plus it gave us the Zombie Island era movies, and I think nearly every Scooby fan can agree they’re one of the highest points of the franchise.
6. If they could make a sequel to one Scooby-Doo series or film, what would it be?
Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated. I’m admittedly not much of a fan of that series, but I watched it through fully recently so it’s on my mind. It’s one of the few series to have a plot spanning multiple episodes, and whilst the series did conclude that plot I think it ended in a way you could create a sequel to with a bit of thought. Besides it’s one of the few Scooby series where a sequel would make sense. As if you made a sequel to say What’s New Scooby Doo or the Scooby Doo Show it’d just be another generic/usual formula Scooby series.
Or maybe a movie further expanding on a plot of an episode or the villains from it. I loved how Frankencreepy did that. Though if they did do that I’d prefer it to be a villain who hasn’t already been reused, or only reused once. As I’m a bit sick of seeing the Black Knight, Captain Cutler, the Creeper, the Zombie, etc over and over again.
7. What direction would you like to see the franchise go in the future?
I’d like to see it go back to using the original (or original inspired) art style more, no more Get a Clue/SDMI/BCSD odd art styles. Though I have got my wish there with the new Guess Who series. Would prefer the movies to give up the crossover thing, as it’s gotten old, and try to make the movies standout more on their own, like how Zombie Island or Camp Scare standout and are memorable. Which I know is probably a bit hard, given how many movies there are, but I think it could be done. Oh and have the Hex Girls appear again already!
8. Who is your favorite member of the gang and why?
Shaggy, since he’s funny and cute. That’s literally my only reasons lol.
9. What is your favorite villain? Why?
That’s an easy question. Ben Ravencroft. He’s one of the gang’s most devious villains, considering how he was so good at being manipulative he even manipulated and deceived Velma. Plus he had good style and was voiced by Tim Curry. I like a lot of the Scooby Doo Show monsters designs though too, since they had some more out there/less generic monsters. As a note the demon shark from A Demon Shark in the Foggy Dark (I love that episode name, gets straight to the point of the episode lol) also gave me a ton of nightmares as a kid too, not sure why though as I’m not scared of sharks.
10. In your opinion, who is the best recurring (non-gang) character in the franchise?
Well as guessable by my answer to a previous question, the Hex Girls!
11. Do you have a Scooby-Doo collection? If so, what’s in it?
Just VHS tapes (both official and recordings) and DVDs. Do own some fan made Hex Girls t-shirts though. I should buy more stuff, but there’s been little merchandise I’ve been interested in buying.
12. What do you think has made the franchise so popular that it’s still going strong after 50 years?
It’s simplicity. Some say it’s a flaw but the fact Scooby Doo has almost always followed the same formula makes it easy to understand (for kids) and memorable. Relatable too, as the fact it’s changed little means people who grew up with the show in entirely different generations can relate given they watched the same formula of show, or the same show in the case of SDWAY’s enduring popularity. Plus Scooby Doo’s just such a lovable character, everyone loves him. And whilst I can’t speak for other cultures it at least has some cross-cultural appeal, given how despite being Danish I took to it and loved it as a kid even though I wouldn’t get some references the show made.
13. What is one fun fact about you in real life?
Due to the franchise being one of the shows which helped me learn English there when I was younger (between the ages of 4 to 8 I think it was) where I would say words with an R sound at the beginning when there wasn’t an R sound there. All because I heard Scooby Doo say certain words in English that way, so child me assumed that was how some words were actually spoken!
Thank you so much to Amelia for offering to be our final spotlight for the month! I really appreciate her continued friendship over the years, and honestly, her story is super inspiring and I hope people take inspiration from it.
That being said, thanks to all of you, the readers of this blog, for just frankly being amazing human beings. I've had so much fun this past month with this little project of mine, and I'll miss posting these every morning. Maybe again someday I'll do some more! I hope you got to meet lots of cool new Scooby fans, as well as hearing all their interesting perspectives of the franchise. This has been an amazing 50th anniversary month, and I hope you all have enjoyed reading all the content as much as I have producing it!
In season 3, episode 17 of Young Justice (titled "First Impression"), several characters appear that have striking similarities to Scooby-Doo characters. The picture above shows characters which look like Fred, Velma and Daphne. There are also characters that look incredibly similar to Sheriff Stone and the fake Mayor Jones from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
There's even a scene in which the Velma look-a-like character loses her glasses!
Here's an excerpt from Greybishop, who came up with the idea for this fun fact!
"An alien attack on Brooklyn, Maine begins by taking a potshot at a police cruiser driven by a Sheriff who looks awfully familiar to anyone who is a fan of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated cartoon from 2010. He protects a young lady in a smart outfit from harm and then the word goes out and the team of heroes known as The Outsiders shows up. We meet a spectacled young lady with a huge vocabulary and finally a blonde girl in a familiar looking outfit. There's even a scene where three "aliens" are unmasked and turn out to be normal humans. As they're being hauled off to jail, one even says that "We would've scored, big time, if you heroes hadn't gotten in our way!"
I would totally watch an all-girl version of Scooby-Doo similar to the Newsgirl Legion in Young Justice.

I'm happy to say I have one final surprise for you guys for Scooby's anniversary month! After five years of having the same logo, I've finally created a new logo for the site which can be seen above. Thanks so much to Scoob16, who created this logo for the site! This is replacing the old logo, which can be seen below:
