If you haven't gotten the memo yet, the fourteenth incarnation of Scooby-Doo, entitled Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, is coming to an end in just a few days, on March 18. Most likely, however, you probably didn't get the memo unless you read my post earlier this week. Sadly, I still have yet to see any promotion on either Boomerang or Warner Brothers part informing fans about the conclusion of this series.
I still remember all the hype 5 years ago that Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated was airing its final episodes on April 5, 2013, and how much people were looking forward to seeing how the series would end. Maybe this is why I'm disheartened to see that Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! is ending without much excitement from fans. As someone whose been so passionate about Scooby for years now, it's so crazy to see that this series is just going to air its final episode without anyone even really noticing. Like, I've not even seen a single person talk about it, which from my experience in the fandom is unheard of. In fact, I still remember when the announcement came out on ScoobyAddicts that SDMI was ending. There were pages and pages of replies and chat between fans, reminiscing about the series and how much we all enjoyed watching. The other day, I posted something on the ScoobyAddicts forum to the effect of what I posted on the blog about Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! ending, and as I write this, there is still not a single person who has replied, or even acknowledged that the show is finally ending in the US. (Please note, however, that I'm definitely not blaming anyone and didn't feel discouraged that no one replied. Just trying to illustrate the point that no one is interested in the show because Boomerang and WB don't promote it at all.)
Of course, this is definitely not the fault of the fans. A network has a lot of power in creating awareness and excitement about a show. So far, Boomerang has done a worse job promoting the show than I even thought possible. Less than three weeks after the show began airing, back when the show was still airing on Cartoon Network, they switched the show's timeslot to mid-days without bothering to mention anything or promote it. This, as many of you know, was only the beginning of the show's mistreatment. After several lengthy hiatuses and an eventual airing of the final six episodes of season 1 in an overnight 2 a.m. slot on Boomerang (without promotion, I might add), the show was officially moved to the streaming service for the full second season. Just this past December around Christmastime, the first fifteen episodes were added to the service. Per the previous announcement, most US fans expected that the final eleven episodes would be added sometime on the streaming service. However, just this past Thursday, Boomerang made a last-minute decision to air the final eleven episodes on television, but in another overnight slot without so much as even a bit of promotion or heads up to the fans.
In the process of keeping the blog update, I try to stay as up to date as possible on any Scooby news there may be. Due to the poor promotion, I was completely unaware of the episodes airing until yesterday (despite that they began airing on Thursday). Sadly, the promotion isn't even the worst part this time. Even when airing the episodes in an overnight death slot, when virtually no one is watching, they can't even keep the timeslot consistent. The final episodes are airing at random times throughout the overnight period every day, with the timeslot changing every single day for an unknown reason. As you can imagine, I was quite confused when I saw this. I still am. Boomerang literally has nothing to air in that overnight slot, so to make it nearly impossible to figure out when the episodes are airing just seems like they're intentionally trying to ensure the show's final few episodes won't actually be watched.
This is why it is so depressing to see how badly Boomerang is abusing the show, even when there's really no reason to. Whilst typing up the post yesterday announcing the show was ending, I admittedly was a bit emotional. Being so passionate about the show and the franchise in general, it was really frustrating to see what a horrible way the show would be airing its finale episode (which should be a huge landmark for any show). It felt like the fans were powerless to Boomerang's extensive mistreatment of the show, and no one would even bother to acknowledge the show was ending, or remember fond memories of the show like was done with SDMI.
It quickly occurred to me, that we actually aren't powerless at all. As fans, we have still have the power to remember the show fondly, and give it as special of a final sendoff that any other Scooby show has gotten in the past. Even if the poor promotion won't allow many fans to truly appreciate the show and celebrate its finale episode, doesn't mean we can't still remember the show fondly.
Because of this, I've decided to do a bit of a special event on the site and blog beginning on the day the finale airs. The whole week will be centered around Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, as a way to celebrate the show. Each day, I will post a new article highlighting and discussing different aspects of the show. In addition to Monday's article, the Fun Fact post will also be BCSD-themed to celebrate the finale. Ideally, I would have liked to have some of the BCSD writers contribute an article or two as well. However, due to the very short timing, I don't think I'll be able to do this, as they all likely have very busy schedules and I don't want to throw a request at them without any notice.
So, be sure to check back on the blog often next week, as there will be a new article every day to celebrate the show! Instead of letting the show fade away without mention, let's celebrate the end of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! in style! :)
I've been thinking about making some more updates to the site now ever since the new year. Recently, I've also gotten a few emails from people asking when I will start adding new content to the site again, and even a couple which asked if I was "done" updating the site now I that all the essential information has been added. I'm hoping to begin adding some amazing new stuff to the site soon, and I'm definitely far from being out of ideas.
However, I wanted to get all of your feedback on which of the following ideas you'd like to see added to the site first. Whichever option wins simply means I will prioritize that first, and doesn't mean that the other options won't ever be added to the site. Here are the ideas I'm pondering adding, so let me know which option you want to see added to the site first!
The first question asks about which update you'd most like to see implemented on the site, while the second and third questions ask for miscellaneous suggestions, if you have any. If you do not want to answer questions 2 and/or 3, you can just leave those responses blank and your response will still submit. As a reminder, the system will only allow you to vote once, and will delete all duplicate responses from the same IP address.
Thanks so much for your input in advance, and I'm super excited to see what you guys suggest! The poll will close on March 16 at 1 p.m. (central) so if you have any input, make sure to respond to the poll before then! Please feel free to leave me any suggestions in the comments as well! :)
"Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers" is such an amazing movie! From the location to the spooky music, everything about it is such a masterpiece! But, what made the movie so intriguing and wonderful is the multi-faceted and ever-tangled web of mysteries that were prevalent throughout the entire film. Over the years, I've mentioned to some fellow Scooby fans jokingly that I could literally write an entire article on my theories surrounding the mysteries and ghosts in this film...so that's exactly what I'm going to do!
I would imagine that many people view the mysteries in this film as "solved" like the ending of the film presents. What I find so interesting about this film, however, is that there are so many different ways you can interpret all the mysteries!
There's of course the somewhat more simplistic view that the movie's ending alludes to (per Shaggy's comment, "I guess there aren't any real ghosts here at all!) - the Skull Ghost and the Headless Horseman were both the sheriff's witty and devious brother, the ghost in the attic was Farquard trying to steal the treasure, the "ghost" ape was simply a real ape which escaped from the circus, and the glowing-eyed wolf was possibly just a wolf that ran out of the forest coincidentally at the same time Beauregard's ghost appeared. The only ghost that this is unclear with, is Shaggy's Uncle Beauregard. It's certainly probable that the sheriff's brother is the ghost, hence the Beauregard costume in the closet, though his appearance at the end of the movie makes this somewhat unclear.
Ever since I first watched the movie when I was in the third grade and about 8, I've admittedly always thought Uncle Beauregard's ghost was "real" and the sheriff maybe dressed up as him once or twice to take advantage of the legend. There were times where the sheriff undeniably could not have been the ghost, such as the time where he drove his bike through Shaggy's solid wall, which obviously, a human could not have done. He also tells Shaggy to "leave this place!" during this same scene. So by that line, his uncle also wants him to leave, and thus it hypothetically could have been the real ghost or the sheriff's brother any of the times he chased Shaggy and the dogs. However, there is one time where the ghost was almost positively the sheriff in disguise. When Shaggy and the dogs look for the next clue in the cemetery, you may remember that they accidentally drop the headstone hat on the ghost (and cause him to yell "ouch!"). Going by the fact that the ghost was able to pass through a solid wall in the previous bedroom scene, the headstone could not have hurt the real ghost, and would have likely gone through him. So thus, by this hypothesis, some of the appearances were the real ghost trying to scare Shaggy away, though other appearances were most likely the sheriff. However, it is very tough to tell in some scenes, such as the bridge one or some of the house ones, if the Uncle Beauregard which appeared was the real ghost or the sheriff in costume.
The Skull Ghost is a really fun one to talk about, just because most people seem to presume that it was the sheriff's brother in all the appearances. However, if you look and listen closely, there are some differences in the Skull Ghost's physical appearance each time he shows up. The most prominent difference is that sometimes, the Skull Ghost is quite obviously a man in a suit with bones painted on. Other times, he seems to be made completely of real bones, and you can even hear his bones clanking against each other. You can see the side-by-side comparison I did of his appearances here. However, I'm not discounting the fact there that Hanna-Barbera just made an animation glitch here (as it's certainly been known to happen), but what I find particularly interesting about this is that this difference in appearances happens multiple times, but towards the end before they unmask the sheriff's brother, the Skull Ghost always appears in the black skeleton suit, while in the beginning few appearances, he is almost always the real-boned skeleton with a cape (which the sheriff's version of the ghost also doesn't have). My personal belief, because of this significant difference in appearance, which happens multiple times, is that the Skull Ghost was indeed real during the times in the beginning he appears without the black suit and with a cape.
The only ghost which is obviously fake, in my opinion, is the Headless Horseman, who was proven to be a dummy/mannequin on a robot horse. However, if you're more creative and imaginative than me, I'm sure you could probably think up an awesome theory surrounding the Headless Horseman! There are so many cool hidden aspects of the mysteries in this film, it wouldn't surprise me if there was some special "clue" thrown into the movie to hint that horseman was supposedly "real."
While we're talking about the Headless Horseman, let's get into the glowing-eyed wolf, which appeared with him at the beginning of the movie. There's unfortunately not too much to analyze about this particular "ghost"/creature, as it only appears at the very beginning of the film and for a brief 30 seconds, if even that. My opinion, which I'll admit is mainly based on how I think mystery movies should be as spooky, confusing and thought-inspiring as possible, is that the wolf is a "ghost" or some other supernatural creature, though again I have nothing to base that on other than my hopeful inner Scooby/movie nerd lol. What I do find interesting, however, is that no other Scooby sites list or even mention the wolf as a villain, or for that matter, at all, besides this one. I guess it just goes to show how unpopular of a villain he was, though I wish he would have showed up more in the movie! How cool would it have been to have a ghostly wolf running around the house in addition to all the other spirits?
The ghost in the attic is another interesting one to discuss, as it's super ambiguous as to if it was Farquard, the Sheriff, or a real ghost. By real-life logic, it would have had to have been a real ghost, as a person couldn't have lived and dropped the 20+ feet from the attic to the ground floor. However, cartoon logic would obviously allow this, meaning it easily could have been Farquard or the Sheriff (more likely of the two Farquard, as he had the jewel which the ghost stole). But, the ghost didn't look or sound like Farquard, and you once again could hear bones clanking (bringing it back to my Skull Ghost theory), so hypothetically, the ghost in the attic could have been a real ghost who was after the treasure.
The ape, who I believe Farquard called "Beebo" (or something to that affect) at the beginning of the film, is one of my favorite villains in this film! I love how un-self-aware/dimwitted he is, particularly his line "A ghost?" in reference to himself lol. It's never really proven otherwise, but I would claim that the ape was definitely a ghost. Farquard's comment at the beginning of the film that Uncle Beauregard shot the ape and had him stuffed, followed by the fact that the ape looks EXACTLY like the stuffed one Farquard shows everyone. The only argument I've heard against the ape being a ghost is that he is too timid to be a real spirit, as he is afraid of his spooky surroundings and the other ghosts. My only response to that is that ghosts can be quirky too haha! And before I end my discussion of the ape, I have to say that the ape's face when riding the mechanical horse at the end of the movie is soooo cute lol.
This movie is such a cinematic masterpiece with so many amazing plot twists, spooky spirits, and well-developed mysteries which you can interpret in so many different, unique ways. The sophistication and intricacy in this film is what makes it one of my favorite Scooby movies of all-time to this date. If anyone has any thoughts on this film, whether it's in general or related to your perspective of the many unsolved mysteries this film has, please let me know in the comments and I'll be more than happy to discuss thoughts with you!
It's unfortunate, but 2017 was a bit of a lackluster year for Scooby compared to recent years. "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!" only aired eight new episodes this year in the US, leaving 24 episodes still unaired. We saw a decrease in DVDs this year, dropping down to an all-time recent low of only 2 new-to-DVD episodes being released in the whole year.
On the positive side of things, however internationally, many fans got to see the rest of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, and the remaining episodes were posted online for fans who weren't fortunate enough to have their episodes air in the home country. We also got some exciting announcements for new films and series, including "Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold," which will be released just a short 9 days into the next year. We also got the announcement for a new feminist-focused film, "Daphne & Velma" as well as a brand new series and an updated release date for the film formerly known as "S.C.O.O.B.".
Though it was difficult to choose large events which occurred this year (as most of what occured this year were very small, incremental events), and I had to scrape the bottom of the comic barrel (you'll notice that I divided each comic as its own event in the list), I managed to pick the 10 biggest things of 2017 that happened in the Scooby franchise. Please note, however, this should not be confused for an official top 10 list, as this list reflects my own opinions of the best events of the year. While creating this list, I tried my very best to remain completely unbiased, and hopefully this list reflects the general opinion of the fandom, rather than simply my own opinion. It also should be noted that this list only includes events which happened this year, so announcements for things which will be released in future years (i.e. Daphne & Velma) are not included in this list. So without further comments, here is the top 10 things that happened in the Scooby franchise this year!:
10. Scooby Appears in Halifax Commercial
Though the fact that this small commercial is even included in the list speaks to how light of a year it was for new Scooby content, I still thought I'd include this ad, as it was a somewhat famous commercial and aired on several major networks for many months. In January 2017, Halifax made a commercial which featured the gang solving a mystery and stumbling upon Halifax bank. The commercial, which is a mix of animation and live-action, was filmed in London in late 2016. This commercial also marked the reintroduction of two famous voice actors of the gang, Mindy Cohn as Velma, and Scott Innes as Shaggy.
9. Twelve New Scooby-Doo, Where Are You Comics
Coming in at number 9 this year (one spot up from last year's list) is the twelve new Scooby-Doo, Where Are You comics which were released this year. One new comic was released every second Wednesday of the month, and this year, issues #77-88 made their debut in comic shops. We are getting excitingly close to the 100th issue, and if this monthly trend would continue, we would get the milestone 100th comic in December of next year.
8. Creepy Carnival and Happy Spook-Day DVDs
This year was a bit different from other recent years, in the sense that over the course of the entire year, we only managed to get two previously unreleased episodes on DVD. These new-to-DVD episodes came from the "Scooby-Doo and the Creepy Carnival" and "Happy Spook-Day, Scooby-Doo" DVDs. On May 2, 2017, the Creepy Carnival DVD made its way into stores, with previously unreleased episode "The Crazy Carnival Caper" from 1983's The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show. Approximately 4 months later, on August 29, 2017, The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries' (1984) premiere episode, titled "Happy Birthday, Scooby-Doo" was released on the Happy Spook-Day DVD.
While I'm of course thankful we got even those 2 new episodes, I really wish that WB would release more season sets or 13 Spooky Tales-like DVDs. Unfortunately, as we haven't gotten any new 13 Spooky Tales sets now since May 2015, I think it's safe to say that those particular DVD sets have been discontinued. Still, I'd really like to see the return of themed DVD sets with more new episodes. Both of these new DVDs this year only featured three episodes each, but were only half the price of the 13 Spooky Tales DVDs, which included nearly 5 times the number of episodes that these two recent DVDs have had.
7. LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash
As a sequel of sorts to last year's "Haunted Hollywood" movie, a second LEGO film entitled "Blowout Beach Bash" was released on July 25, 2017. While the movie definitely had its moments, my personal feelings on it is that it was filled with too many corny and unfunny jokes, particularly the "Blowout Beach Bingo Bash" song which draws on for a painful duration of 5 minutes. I felt this movie was dragged out and easily could have been a 22-minute special, without all the extra filler of songs and bad jokes.
6. Scooby-Doo! Team Up Releases 14 New Issues
After becoming a monthly comic late last year, Scooby-Doo! Team Up continued to release new issues every month, totaling 12. As an added bonus, collector's editions of issues 13-18 and 19-24 were each released as volumes 3 and 4, respectively. This year's team-ups included Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles, Quick Draw McGraw, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern & Green Arrow, Hong Kong Phooey & Spot, Plastic Man & Woozy Winks, Jonah Hex, Top Cat, Challengers of the Unknown, The Atom, Atom Ant, and The Legion of Super Heroes. The comic series is now up to issue 33.
5. Boomerang Streaming Service Launches
On April 11, 2017, the Boomerang Streaming Service launched and offered subscribers access to hundreds of cartoons at a time with a monthly or annual subscription fee. Among these cartoons include Scooby-Doo, Where Are You, The Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show, The Richie Rich / Scooby-Doo Show, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, What's New, Scooby-Doo? and several of the DTV films and specials. The service also is now the exclusive home of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, which now has stopped airing on the Cartoon Network and Boomerang television network.
This is a wonderful opportunity for fans to watch episodes of Scooby-Doo and various other cartoons. However, as I believe I've mentioned previously, in my opinion it is a bit frustrating and unethical on WB's part to air only part of a season of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo, and then purposefully banish unaired episodes to the streaming service. This essentially forces everyone to pay for content which was previously able to be watched for free on their network, simply because CN is too lazy to find a proper time to air the show. Of course, this is only my opinion and my criticisms here should not impact anyone's view of the streaming service. I'm glad that some people seem to enjoy the streaming service and still can benefit from subscribing to it, whether it's a platform for them to watch new episodes or rewatch old favorites.
4. Scooby-Doo! Shaggy's Showdown
On February 14, 2017, the film Scooby-Doo! Shaggy's Showdown was released on DVD. Personally, I really loved this film and thought it was one of the best DTVs we've had in years. The plot seemed to be very in-depth and appropriate for its length (whereas some other recent films seemed to slightly drag on or try to do too much with too little time) and the characters were all very interesting and well-developed. I didn't even mind the Justin Bieber-inspired Buddy G, whose name was also a parody of another pop star, Becky G. I hope that we get to see more movies as good as this one in the coming year!
3. Be Cool, Scooby-Doo: 21 New Episodes
This year, the following episodes premiered in the US: "Eating Crow," "I Scooby Dooby Do," "El Bandito," "Into the Mouth of Madcap," "The Norse Case Scenario," "The People vs. Fred Jones," "Some Fred Time," "There Wolf," "Renn Scare," "How to Train Your Coward," "Worst in Show," "Mysteries on the Disorient Express," "Halloween," "The Curse of Kaniaku," "Vote Velma," "Scroogey Doo," "In Space," "Doo Not Disturb," "Silver Scream," "Fright of Hand," and "Greece is the Word."The final six season one episodes aired in a 1:00am middle-of-the-night slot on June 20, presumably to simply air the episodes as quickly as possible without interfering with their other programming. It should be noted however, that "Eating Crow" technically premiered last year on iTunes and Amazon on March 20, 2016, before it was taken off both services within a few days of being posted. However, the posting of the episode was almost positively a mistake on CN's part, who likely forgot to communicate with the streaming services that the episode had been removed from the schedule. This has also happened previously with CN, which includes "Mystery Solvers State Club Finals" and "The Night the Clown Cried," both of which were not supposed to air for months, but were accidentally posted by CN online early. The holiday specials "Halloween" and "Scroogey Doo," premiered on the Boomerang streaming service a month before their respective holidays. Just before the year ended, on December 21, 2017, Boomerang put eight season 2 episodes on the service (episodes 27-32, 34 and 35). The next day, on Friday (December 22) morning, five more episodes were posted on the streaming service (episodes 37-41). It is currently unknown when the missing 11 episodes will be added to the streaming service.
2. Scooby Apocalypse
In January 2016, fans were shocked when they heard the "Scooby Apocalypse" was coming. Now, the series has become a hit for teens and adult fans fans alike, and has released 12 new issues this year, in addition to two collector's volumes which encompassed issues 1-6 (volume 1) and 7-12 (volume 2). The series is now up to issue 20 as of December 13, when the last issue came out in comic book shops. I haven't had time to catch up on all the issues yet (insert big sigh here), though I am currently up to issue 12 and am really enjoying the series so far! It is definitely a different direction for Scooby going in a more violent, adult-oriented plotline, but regardless I'm glad I decided to read it, and it's nice to see Daphne toning down slightly from the first issue I read, where it was basically a fight-fest that included Daphne punching practically everyone. However, I've heard that the series seems to be headed towards a finale, though I'm really hoping that it's simply the end of this particular storyline and not the entire series!
1. Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Finishes Internationally
Here it is! The biggest event for Scooby in 2017 is Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! finishing internationally and being released online. This year, fans were treated to all of season 2, with the final unreleased episode airing on November 13, 2017, thus finishing the series. Despite the numerous criticisms of both the art and humor, I'll really miss this series. In my opinion, this was easily the funniest, most character-driven series in the franchise, and really gave us a great look at the gang's internal friendship and bond, whereas in other series we don't get to see that as much. The series' style of humor really synced up nicely with my own, providing a mix of both slapstick-y, laugh-out-loud humor and more absurd, abstract humor. I love the fact that the series includes all different types of humor to appeal to all ages. I think the abstractness of the humor didn't appeal to many people who disliked the show, but I really enjoyed how absurd and ridiculous the show got sometimes. All the characters were very three-dimensional and each had their own, unique personalities, to the point where many people could tell if the characters were written even slightly off from how they usually acted. Most prevalently, Daphne was given a very eccentric and nonconformist personality, which I must say really worked for me. So often in TV, we see these one-dimensional or boring characters which are completely predictable, and I really enjoyed the unpredictability of Daphne's behavior. Though that may be influenced by the fact that I have a slightly quirky personality myself in real-life. :)
That about wraps up this year's list, though to end this year's list on a much more positive note, I'd like to briefly highlight 5 things which I would like to see occur next year in the Scooby franchise.
1. The Remainder of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Airing in the US
While I love the show and hate to see it end, I would really like season 2 to get a proper US airing at some point in the next year. Unfortunately, it's not possible to have them "aired" on television, but I really hope that the series will find get a chance to wrap up in this next year, with the remaining 11 episodes premiering on the streaming service. There's really no point in drawing things out any longer, and since every episode has now aired in numerous countries, it seems only fair for US fans to get the rest of the episodes as well.
2. At Least 3 New DTV Movies
These past few years, we've only seen generally about two DTVs per year, and in last year's post, I linked to the TCM (Official Turner Classic Movies), which claimed (and actually still claims at the time of this post) we should have gotten 3 movies this year. I'm presuming the third unreleased movie is the Batman one, which was probably made last year and was simply postponed into January. According to the same TCM site, we should have 3-4 movies this year including the "Daphne and Velma" one (more on that later). Hopefully this will come to pass!
3. Continuation of the Comic Releases
In 2017, the record for the amount of Scooby comics in a single year was broken, with a grand total of 40 brand new comics being released this year. I would love to see this trend continue, especially as I am just getting caught up with reading the comics and have been enjoying them. I'm really hoping that Scooby Apocalypse continues, as like I mentioned above, it appears to be coming to a conclusion. It would be nice to see something special done for 100th Scooby-Doo, Where Are You comic in December as well!
4. More DVD Releases with Unreleased Episodes
As I mentioned previously, the DVDs have been at an all-time low recently. It would be great to see the return of the season sets, or some more themed set DVDs (though including more episodes than just 3) with unreleased episodes on them. I'm very glad to see that Be Cool, Scooby-Doo Season 1, Part 2 will be released right away in January, so here's hoping that we see some other season sets released this year (The Scooby-Doo Show Season 2 would be a nice one to have finally released!)
5. Daphne & Velma
I hesitate to put this one in the list, as it is a more controversial film in a sense. I'm sure that a few of you have cringed when I've used the phrase "feminist-focused" to describe the movie, so I should probably explain to you all why I'm excited about the new film.
Unfortunately, it seems when people think of the word "feminist" these days, a lot of people's minds turn to super preachy, men-hating women going on obnoxious protests. This is not the vision I have at all for the film, and I too would hate it if it was just 75 minutes of hyper-feminist political statements and bra-burning. My hopes for this film are that it presents Daphne and Velma in more of a main role, and to expand upon their characters further, and most prominently, to get a different take on the premise we're used to, and maybe see those two characters in a different way than we previously had. People are probably still going to hate on the movie a lot in these next few months before it comes out, judging the movie on one word, "feminist-focused," but I really hope that people decide to give a chance in the end.
Thank you all so much for reading this post, and please let me know in the comments if you all have any thoughts you want to share of what should happen in 2018. Hope you all have a wonderful new year! :)
First and foremost, I should probably mention I have no idea how official this award poll is, however, I'm guessing based on the content that this is just an unofficial blog poll.
However, someone emailed me this morning and mentioned they had noticed ScoobySnax was nominated by a Spanish blog site named "Arizona" for one of the five best Scooby-Doo fan sites and blogs! The other four sites which ScoobySnax is "up against" (which I put in quotations as I don't intend to compete with anyone, as all Scooby sites are equally awesome in my opinion!) are Scoobypedia, Scooby-Doo! Network Center, Oh! Scooby Brasil, and O Mundo do Scooby-Doo. Though the poll appears to be an amateur one done by another blog site (I unfortunately don't know how famous "Arizona" is in the Spanish blogosphere) and the award seems to be symbolic, I'm still incredibly honored to have even been mentioned and really appreciate the nomination!
If you're interested, you can vote in the poll here. The questions and answers are unfortunately in Spanish and some of the categories don't relate to Scooby, though you can translate them through Google Translate. Some answers are in English, though they appear to be roughly translated and have a few typos in result. You do not have to vote for all the categories, you can leave however many you want blank and your vote will still be submitted.
You may remember last year that I published a post entitled "A Guide to the Scooby-Doo Holiday Specials," which was highlighted the plethora of Scooby-Doo episodes and movies which are classics to watch around the holiday season. Since then, two additional wintery episodes have debuted. Additionally, I received a few comments and an email which suggested other episodes which people enjoyed watching around the holidays which I had not included in the list. For the sake of completeness (and the fact that I want to make sure everyone's ideas are included!), I present you with an updated guide to the Scooby-Doo holiday specials!
Scroogey Doo (Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!)
This first episode is a brand new episode which made its debut in the UK just months ago, on July 7, 2017, and just debuted a few weeks ago in the US on the Boomerang streaming service, on November 30, 2017.
I've been wanting an episode which parodies the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol" for years now! The plot of the story works so well with Scooby, the fact that there are three ghosts haunting Scrooge and there's a "mystery" of sorts regarding why the ghosts are there and how Scrooge became the way he is. This episode does a perfect job staying true to the original story while staying true to Scooby as well (with crossovers, you always seem to run the risk of having it work for one story but not the other). It also does wonderfully in keeping with the classic Scooby mystery plot, as well as keeping with the mindless silliness that is Be Cool, Scooby-Doo. The episode has multiple recurring gags throughout, including my personal favorite regarding Fred's sudden grudge against raccoons. I also greatly enjoy the idea of Scrooge getting himself tested for menopause and "what if my lips fall off?" disease lol.
There is one interesting twist, however...in this version, the ghosts aren't solely there to haunt Scrooge, but they also attempt to show Velma that she would be better off not being held back by the gang, and should go pursue her own dreams.
Overall, this is a fantastic holiday episode which you should definitely add to your list. 10/10
Naughty or Ice (Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!)
While this episode isn't strictly Winter-themed, it does relate to an "Ice Hotel" and has several winter-themed jokes throughout it, so I suppose I should include it in this list as well.
The idea of this episode was very interesting, but personally, I didn't really enjoy Daphne's quirk of the episode. In my opinion, Daphne attempting to blow the vault simply to get something back which her mother borrowed from her, neither makes sense or is consistent with her character. She could have just as easily just told her mother how she felt or come up with some elaborate (and funny) scheme to trick her mother, rather than committing several illegal acts just to steal back something that was her's anyway. I also didn't feel like Daphne lying to the gang and sneaking around behind their backs is consistent with the Daphne that had been established in the rest of the series. Normally, Daphne is a very empathetic and caring character who would do anything for her friends, but in this episode she just acts very selfishly and actively deceives her friends for personal gain.
Besides this, as well as some of the lame ice jokes and the repeating of the already-not-funny slippery ice joke from "Be Cold, Scooby-Doo!", I did actually enjoy the episode moderately. I loved the idea of reinventing "Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright" from the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You series, and many of the other jokes were quite humorous. My favorite part of the episode was definitely when Shaggy and Scooby tried to teach the Ice Man to talk. The Ice Man's triumphant announcement of "My name is Ice Man! My name is Ice Man!" is absolutely hilarious. I genuinely felt a little sad when Shaggy and Scooby ran off and tricked him, the poor Ice Man worked so hard lol!
Overall, this episode certainly had its moments and was a nice reimagining of "Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright," but the whole plotline of Daphne blowing the vault and acting off-character somewhat ruined the episode for me. This is one I'd recommend skipping. 5/10
Block-Long Hong Kong Terror (What's New, Scooby-Doo?)
This is one that was suggested last year that I add to the list, and quite honestly, I wouldn't have ever thought to watch it, but it's a really great idea and one I might consider adding to my list. Though not Winter-related as the other episodes are, this episode highlights the gang celebrating New Year (technically Chinese New Year, though IMO it's close enough!).
The episode features the gang in China to try to repair Shaggy's broken rubber duck, Duck Guy. While they are there, a giant dragon attacks the Chinese New Year festivities. Personally, I really enjoyed this episode, particularly the Duck Guy plotline, as it provided an interesting explanation and story development as to why the gang was in China, instead of another random "oh hey, we're just visiting China for no reason!" haha. Which brings up the question, how exactly does the gang pay for all the hundreds of countries they've been in? I really wish I could have afforded that with my friends as a teenager lol.
Overall, this was a very interesting episode, so if you celebrate New Year's and want a fun episode to watch, I would definitely recommend this one. 8/10
Laff-A-Lympics: The Swiss Alps & Tokyo, Spain & the Himalayas, The North Pole & Tahiti, Russia & the Caribbean, and Warsaw, Canada & Poland
This was another suggestion I got after I made my post last year. Admittedly, I had never considered watching any of the Laff-A-Lympics episodes that took place in snowy/wintery places around the holidays, but it's definitely a great idea! Five episodes of the series take place in snow-covered locations, including: "The Swiss Alps & Tokyo," "Spain & the Himalayas," "The North Pole & Tahiti," "Russia & the Caribbean" and "Warsaw, Canada & Poland." These episodes are a bit more difficult to review, as they all have basically the same plot, but if you're looking for a less conventional holiday episode which you don't watch every year, I would recommend these for sure! However, if you are short on time or just want to stick to the classics, I'd say maybe avoid these.
If you remember, this post's original point was to highlight the best and most highly recommended holiday episodes. With these new additions, let's briefly recap and add to my choices from last year:

Thanks so much as always for reading and visiting the blog! If you have any other episodes which you watch around the holidays that I didn't mention, please don't hesitate to suggest one in the comments! Hope you all have a great rest of the year and happy holidays everyone! :)
Wow, it's hard to believe it's already been three years that the site has been up!
Since last September, the site stats have nearly doubled! Looking at the site stats, on average, the site gets about 800 views per day with an average of a little over 4,000 views per week. Though I don't really have anything to compare the site's views to, some sites probably get thousands, even tens of thousands of views per day from people all around the world. While ScoobySnax.com certainly doesn't have that sort of traffic, I still continue to be proud of the site, and of course, the site visitors every day. It's amazing to me that nearly 1,000 different people view the site every day and I want to say thank you to everyone who's ever read, commented or even briefly viewed the site.
For those of you who are new to the site or haven't read last year's year-in-review post, generally I try to sum up the highlights of the site from the past year, and there certainly were a lot of highlights this year!
Ironically, only a few weeks after the last site year-in-review was posted, the site unfortunately was down for nearly a month due to some coding glitches which I couldn't figure out how to fix. However, the site being down gave me time to finish up the episode guide, which now has in-depth info on every single Scooby-Doo episode in the franchise. It was a monumental project, as I wrote every single bit of information by hand and took screenshots of every single villain in the Scooby universe myself. But it feels great having that finally available for people to use for reference and information, admittedly I even occasionally refer to the guide if I need to know an airdate lol.
As the History of the Site page now says, "2017 was the year for ScoobySnax.com." And that it was, on January 23, 2017, I put the finishing touches on the Internet Games page and posted it a few days later. The page features a list of the best and most popular Scooby-Doo games, and where to play them, so if you're ever bored sometime, definitely check those games out! They are fun for both kid and adult fans alike, and hey, I've even caught myself playing them on occasion! I also created a subpage in May on Crystal Cove Online, a game which was a companion to the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated series. In my opinion, that is the best Scooby-Doo game ever made. It's both challenging and fun, and really does a good job mirroring the episodes! Though I've been told Night of 100 Frights is also one of the best Scooby games (as it has several references to the classic series, including iconic villains such as the Black Knight and the Ghost of Redbeard) so I'll definitely have to play that one sometime and compare them! It was actually a bit of a blast from the past to create the Crystal Cove Online page, since I replayed the entire Crystal Cove Online game to get my information for that page!
And of course, next was amusingly the character guide. Why is that amusing you ask? Because I've been saying ever since I did the "What's coming this month on ScoobySnax?" posts for a brief time way back in March 2015 that I would finish the character guide, and in February, the character guide was finally posted nearly two years later than I had intended. Hey, I guess better late than never, right? Lol
Lastly, there was the List of Releases guide. This list, which took a surprisingly short amount of time compared to what I was expecting, compiles every season set, compilation set, volume and movie ever released on DVD, Blu-Ray and VHS and gives a brief bit of info on them. In my opinion, the How to Have a Complete Scooby Collection is far more helpful in finding missing episodes which you may want, though if you prefer the home media releases being organized by DVD rather than by episode, this is definitely a good way to figure out which DVD you want to purchase if you have a limited amount of money and/or only want DVDs with a lot of episodes on them (as unfortunately WB doesn't always do a great job of making the amount of episodes they put on a DVD/Blu-Ray worth your money).
Combined, these updates are a big landmark for the site! After the List of Releases and Crystal Cove Online pages were created, I had finally added everything I had originally envisioned adding when the site was first published. "Are you still going to update on Scooby-Doo news?" was one particularly memorable comment I got right after posting something to the affect of the previous sentence. Admittedly, I probably worded that poorly and looking back, I can easily see how someone would interpret what I wrote as I'm somehow finished up with updating the site completely. Of course as I think up new page ideas and new Scooby content comes out, I will definitely create more pages on the site!
What would a year-in-review post be without talking about the fun facts? Starting on October 13, 2014, on a whim, I decided to start a weekly blog series called "Fun Fact of the Week," where each Monday, I present a new little-known or interesting fact about Scooby. I honestly wasn't sure if it was going to be a week, a month, a year, or forever, but as soon as I began writing them, I quickly knew it was going to be forever. Though originally the posts were more casually published on random days, on January 5, 2015, the posts were made every single Monday, and still continue to be nearly 3 years later today. Why Mondays, you ask? Honestly, no particular reason other than people tend to hate Mondays and I wanted to give people something to look forward (heck, I even look forward to writing them every Monday!) As of currently, 151 weeks of fun facts have been posted on the site with several guest writers, including the 100th fun fact written by Be Cool Scooby-Doo head writer Jon Colton Barry, and the 150th fun fact, written by the creator of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and writer of The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Tom Ruegger.
And I suppose that leads me to my next point. One of my favorite parts of the site is definitely getting to interact with everyone, those who have worked on the show and fans alike. It was a blast working with Jon Colton Barry and Tom Ruegger, so I want to thank them again for taking time out of their very busy schedule to write the fun facts! Besides writers and show crew members, I equally love getting to talk to fellow Scooby fans, whether its interviews or just in the comments. Speaking of which, one of my favorite articles of the year to write was the Scooby college entrance essay one - it was super fun chatting with Tore and getting to meet her! I want to thank her once again for her time, and wish her the best in getting her master's degree!
One of my other favorite projects this year was working with Dallas Kinard on the Scooby continuity timeline. I was glad to help out with such an ambitious project, and it's been great seeing how many people the timeline has already helped! Lastly, although this didn't happen, if anyone remembers the Scooby-Doo typecast which I did with TS-D/JA Productions, we were talking about doing another one at some point, though it didn't end up happening this year, since Scooby-Doom has temporarily abandoned the site to work with a friend on his new podcast, Nerd Blitz. The podcast is a hodgepodge of various pop culture topics, but there is quite a bit of Scooby-related content, so be sure to listen to it if you enjoy Scooby and listening to podcasts! A big thank you as well to Scooby-Doom and I wish him the best of luck in his podcast and whatever future projects he decides to pursue!
Though this isn't related to the site, I'd like to mention my fanfic as well. It's been a blast writing it this year and developing new characters and story arcs for it. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, I'm currently writing an ongoing fanfiction story entitled "Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake" about what would happen if Daphne didn't get back together with the gang after Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island and continued with her show. If you haven't read it yet, be sure to check it out!
Before I move on, I'd also like to talk about the site's Twitter account quickly. It's been amazing to see the followers slowly climb for the site, and now the site has over 500 people following it, including several people who currently work or have worked on Scooby! My second alternate (non-site) account also now has nearly 100 followers. I truly enjoy talking with everyone every time I come on Twitter, and it's truly a pleasure getting to chat with old and new fans alike. I appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for the great conversations!
I could go on for a while, but before this becomes a 50-page long post, let's get to my hopes for the site in the upcoming year!
1. Of course, I'd like to continue creating more content for the site, including new pages and articles. Since I promised to make more articles early on this year, I admittedly haven't been very good about following through with that. In the upcoming year, I'd like to write more, interesting articles for all of you to read! In addition, I'd like people to continue being helped by the site - it's great seeing all of the emails from people that the site has helped them in some way!
2. I hope that ScoobySnax continues to be a comfortable, enjoyable environment for Scooby fans to use for reference, get updated on the latest Scooby news, or even just chat with one another. As I've mentioned before, I think the Scooby community is fantastic in that sense...almost everyone in the fandom tries to make people feel welcome and part of the community, which you don't necessarily see in a lot of fandoms. I feel like, in some fandoms, there's a perception that being a site owner makes you "above" everyone. I sometimes get the vibe that people may think of me that way, particularly as an admin on the ScoobyAddicts forum. In reality, I don't think of myself as "above" anyone, I honestly just feel like another fan who wants to chat and have fun discussions with people who I see as my equals, not people who I'm above or below. Like I brought up last year, I feel like we as Scooby fans can all benefit from talking and discussing things with each other! It's truly a pleasure for me to be a part of this wonderful fandom.
Thank you all once again for a fantastic three years, and I hope you have enjoyed visiting the site and reading the blog (hopefully I've entertained you at least somewhat!) :) . And of course, thank you for reading this very long post, and hopefully you enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it! Here's to another fantastic year of ScoobySnax.com!
As Scooby fans, I think we can all agree that Scooby has affected our lives in some way or another, whether its your childhood, your identity, or maybe even your career path. In my opinion, part of being a Scooby fan is realizing the impact which watching and appreciating Scooby-Doo has on your life.
For Tore, the impact that Scooby has had on her life started when she was little. In fact, her first memory of watching a television program is watching reruns of Scooby-Doo after school with her mom. "What always appealed to me was the aspect of being scared of the monsters, but finding comfort in Scooby Doo and the gang solving the mystery!" Tore reflects. "I was very vocal about my love of Scooby and it became part of my identity growing up. I guess that's why in high school it was a no brainer to discuss Scooby, because everyone already knew that was just 'my thing'."
Throughout high school, Tore continued expressing herself through her love of Scooby. For various high school projects, Tore used her passion for Scooby-Doo to succeed by centering many of her assignments around Scooby, including several essays and even an informative speech on Scooby's family tree!
As college drew closer, Tore began taking college prep courses to help get her ready for various college exams and the college entrance essay prompts. "I remember in high school during our college prep courses, they told us the most common prompt was who inspired us/who was our biggest influence, and they told us to think outside the box (don't give the typical parent, grandparent, teacher answer). I had already written some other things about Scooby Doo to cure my boredom for other classes, so I decided I might as well write about the impact of Scooby Doo on my life for that assignment too." So Tore decided to take a chance and write her entrance essay, which would determine whether she got into college or not, on our favorite cartoon dog, Scooby-Doo. Because of her essay, which looked at Scooby in a very mature and insightful manner, Tore was accepted to The University of Texas, St. Edward's University and Angelo State University.
This is the essay which got her accepted into college:
When I think about attending college, the wise words of the most influential person of my life comes to mind: “Ruh-Roh!” Yes, you’re reading that right. The most influential person who shaped the woman I am today is not in fact a person at all, but a beloved fictional dog known all around the world as Scooby Doo. While unconventional, Scooby Doo taught me multiple life lessons including perseverance, the value of friendship, and integrity.
How did a cowardly dog teach a young girl perseverance? Almost anyone who has watched the multiple shows Scooby Doo has starred in knows that Scooby has a hard time facing all those ghosts and ghouls. With all of life’s challenges comes fear; the fear of the unknown, the fear of failure, and the fear of stepping out of one’s comfort zone. These fears are especially evident when it comes to starting a new chapter in my life by attending college. However, what I learned from watching Scooby Doo was that although he was definitely afraid to face the many monsters, Scooby persevered. With a Scooby snack and some encouragement from friends, Scooby Doo was often crucial in capturing the creepers, and finding out that those ghosts weren’t ever as scary as they seemed.
What would Scooby Doo do without his friends? As mentioned before, the support of the fellow members of Mystery Inc. often provided Scooby with the courage to solve the mystery and nab the bad guys. While attending college, I know that it is important to rely on my support system to help me face my fears as well. Being a good friend was essential to the success of Mystery Inc., and I look forward to finding new lifelong friends to help me achieve great things at school, and beyond.
Most importantly, Scooby showed me the significance of integrity. At his core, Scooby Doo is a dog on a mission to do the right thing. Scooby Doo and his gang took it upon themselves to investigate and solve mysteries, but in actuality, many of these mysteries hinged upon helping others solely because it was the right thing to do. The Mystery Inc. didn’t receive cash rewards for their many solved cases, but instead their own integrity pushed them to continually take on the scariest of situations. Scooby faced his fears almost every day to lock away the men in the masks often because nobody else in Coolsville would, or could. I know while in college I will have to face many situations that could question my integrity, but thankfully I found a role model in Scooby Doo who taught me that I must always do what is right.
To some, Scooby Doo is a just a character in an old kids' show. We all love Scooby Doo, but no one gives him a second thought once they grow up. This isn’t the case for me. I will never forget how Scooby taught me to face my fears, along with a group of great supporting people behind me, because it is the right thing to do. I will continue to keep the essence of Scooby Doo alive as I start this new chapter in my life. My only question is: Are Scooby Snacks on the meal plan?
After being accepted into all three colleges, Tore originally decided to go to St. Edward's University, and later transfered to Texas University and eventually Angelo State. And in all three colleges, she succeeded, with the help of her passion for Scooby, of course! In fact, today, Tore still uses various things which she learned from her love for everyone's favorite cartoon dog in her daily life and job in a museum, which is ironically rumored to be haunted. "Working in the museum I feel like I'm part of the gang! Every item in our collection has its own history and mystery to solve. And also, we recently had paranormal investigators come to see if it's really haunted or not, so that was definitely spooky! You would think What a Night for a Knight would've inspired my career more, but I still mainly attribute it to Which Witch is Which and To Switch a Witch from The Scooby Doo Show! I also accredit my obsession with Scooby Doo as to why I loved learning about witches as a kid (the first episode I ever saw was Which Witch is Which) and my love of horror movies today."
Even if the impact Scooby has had on your life isn't as large as the impact it has had on Tore's life, it just goes to show how much Scooby can really have an impact on people's lives. "I honestly can't imagine how I would view the world if I wasn't exposed to Scooby Doo at such a young age. It's crazy when you get older and realize how much loving Scooby Doo actually impacts how you view the world, people, friendships, and the scary monsters we face on a day to day basis!"
There's no bigger mystery in the Scooby franchise than the mystery of the correct continuity of the show. Fans, especially ones new to the franchise, have immense trouble trying to figure out the true chronological and continuity-following order to watch the episodes in.
This is where the timeline comes in. @MrKindNerd (formerly @DallasLKinard), an avid Scooby fan, has spent over a year carefully plotting out each point in the series' and finding a chronological order for the entire franchise, so that fans, both new and old, can actually watch the series as you would normally watch it: in chronological order, ranging from when the gang is little in "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo" to when they became adults in some of the later series.
Recently, @MrKindNerd emailed me the timeline he had spent an immense amount of time and effort on, making sure it was perfect and chronologically correct, and quite honestly I was very impressed! The timeline is perfect for the many fans who seek to actually watch the series in the continuity order, and offers many theories to finally solve many of the problems and discontinuities the Scooby franchise unfortunately suffers from.
I've done a tiny bit of work as well on the timeline, but most of the credit goes to @MrKindNerd for creating this fantastic timeline!
Reader's note: This timeline is always subject to change, due to new material coming out and as new information may present itself. It's our goal to be as objective and logically accurate as possible with this viewing order.

As you can see, this timeline took a lot of effort and critical thinking on both our parts! But of course, we are only human, so if you feel like something should be in a different order, or just have a general suggestion for the timeline, please post it in the comments so the timeline can be made as accurate as possible!
Happy February everyone! As promised, I've tallied up the results for the Weekly Blog Series Poll and will give a run-down of what they are in this post.
Overall, there were 21 different voters in the past week that the poll has been up. The results were:
Would you prefer a more content-based or interactive-based blog series?
Which of the following ideas for a new blog series is your favorite?
Weekly Articles/Reviews: 13
Question of the Week: 6
Fan Art Fridays: 1
Weekly Trivia Contest: 1
Would you prefer the fun facts to be posted on Fridays (Fun Fact Fridays), rather than Mondays?
So as you can see, the weekly articles won! As I mentioned, the weekly articles may not start *immediately*, but my goal is to start doing them relatively quickly. Unfortunately, my schedule as of currently is already incredibly busy, and I'd like to focus what little time I have for now on finishing work on a few pages, before starting something new (I'll explain more on this in a moment).
It was really fun to see the results this time! I thought it was particularly cool that all the results leaned toward one option, and none of the numbers were tied or close to one another. It was also really cool to see so many people wanting the Fun Facts to continue being posted every Monday! If any of the questions would have had numbers that were tied or very close, I thought it would for sure be that one. But it's an awesome feeling for me, knowing that you guys love our little tradition every Monday. I really enjoy writing those every week, so great to see that you enjoy them too!
Earlier on, I mentioned that the articles may take a while because I'm working on other pages currently. I'm happy to say the Character Page is almost finally done! I just need to take screencaps of each of the characters, and the page will be complete. It's turning out really good so far, and it's exciting for me to finally be finishing what one person called the "elusive character page" (which is quite possibly my new favorite term for it), which has been a working progress since March 2015. I also am already working on an addition to the new Internet Games page, which will specifically highlight the Crystal Cove Online game (which btw, is now available again).
While I can't guarantee an article every single week these next few weeks, I will say that there will be a special Valentine's Day article coming by the 14th! Thank you to everyone who voted and I'm excited to show you guys all I've been working on!
