Weekly Poll #171
If you scrolled this far, thank you lol. There are 99 options in this week's poll, so we have quite a few to say the least haha. I decided to combine both Scrappy shorts series (The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Hour and The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo Puppy Hour), since we're already going to be doing this poll series until the end of June because there's so many series lol. I thought this would be an easy way to speed things up a bit since they are very similar shows.
Here are the results from last week's poll on the best Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show setting:
The Ghoul, The Bat and the Ugly - 8
The Night Ghoul of Wonderworld - 7
The Scarab Lives - 7

Weekly Poll #169
We had a really well-rounded assortment of votes this time! Every single episode got at least one vote other than three ("A Good Medium Is Rare," "The Phantom of the Country Music Hall" and "The Spirit Spooked Sports Show").

Weekly Poll #167
It's time to determine what the best settings in the franchise are with another poll series! Since many episodes have the gang going to multiple places, I decided to have the options be episodes rather than settings to keep it at a manageable amount of options. I debated about having it be one season per poll, but since there are 15 series, I think it makes more sense to just go by series rather than having this poll series go on for a full year lol.
Last week's poll was a fun one to see the results from! 23 people said they watched Scooby daily, 17 people watch several times a week, 13 people watch weekly, 11 people watch monthly, 7 people watch every couple of months, 6 people watch biweekly, and 6 people watch yearly. Thankfully, nobody voted never haha.
Weekly Poll #166
I thought it might be fun to do a completely different type of poll this week. Despite that you think it would be talked about a lot, I've only had this conversation a handful of times with people in the fandom, so I thought it would be fun (and maybe even facilitate some interesting conversations) to see how often people on this blog watch Scooby!
Here are the results from our Valentine's Day poll on romantic pairings last week! Thank goodness the options that nobody should have voted for got 0 votes haha.
Amber/Scooby and Crystal/Shaggy - 33
Fred and Daphne - 29
Velma and Marcie - 11
Fred and Daphne (SDMI) - 10
Shaggy and Googie - 8
Shaggy and Daphne - 8
Shaggy and Velma (SDMI) - 3
Velma and Coco Diablo - 2
Shaggy and Gigi (Velma) - 2
Daphne and Velma (Velma) - 1
Fred and Daphne (Velma) - 1
Fred and Velma (Velma) - 0
Shaggy and Velma (Velma) - 0
Weekly Poll #165
Happy early Valentine's Day to everyone! One of the major criticisms a lot of people had of Velma was that the romantic drama was not handled well. Given that and the fact that it's nearly Valentine's Day, I thought it might be interesting to do a poll about what people's favorite romantic pairing was in the franchise. I know many people feel romance has a history of being done very poorly in the franchise, so I'll be very interested to see what wins here!
To keep the poll at a manageable amount of options, I did not include implied romantic pairings or the gang briefly having a crush on someone outside the gang (i.e. Scooby and the sled dog in "A Scary Night with a Snow Beast Fright"). Thankfully, that will also save us from having to acknowledge the awkwardness that is Scooby-Doo's crush on Scooby-Dee in "The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller" lol.
Our results for the Best Haunted House Winner's Circle poll are in, and here's what you guys voted! Surprisingly, "Night Terrors" came in last with just 10 votes, and "Bravo Dooby Doo" was just ahead in second place with 16 votes. As expected, "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" was our winner for best haunted house episode, amassing a total of 43 votes!
Weekly Poll #164
We've been doing the best haunted house polls now for the past three weeks, and now, it's time to pit all the winning options against each other! Before we do that though, we need a dramatic reveal for the final winning option haha. The votes were quite spread out this time.
Quite a few episodes didn't do so well in the last poll. "Hollywood Knights!" got an abysmal zero votes, and "The Internet on Haunted House Hill!" didn't do much better, with only one vote. "Mystery of the Missing Mystery Solvers" was barely ahead of that with 2 votes, and "A Haunting in Crystal Cove" were just ahead of that with 4 votes.
There were several episodes that weren't close to winning, but did quite a bit better than the 1 and 2 vote episodes. We had a three-way tie for seventh place, between "House of the Nightmare Witch," "When There's a Will, There's a Wraith," and "The Wedding Witch of Wainsly Hall!", each getting five votes. "Nightfright" came in sixth place with 6 votes.
Our top five were the main contenders, and it was so close than any of them could have won had they gotten a few more votes. "Scoobynatural" came out fifth with seven votes. "A Haunt of a Thousand Voices!" was our fourth place choice with 8 votes. "High-Tech House of Horrors" came in third with 9 votes. "Escape from Mystery Manor" got 11 votes and came in second place. That means "Night Terrors" is our winner this week with 12 votes!
Now, it's time to pit all the winners against each other to find out which episode you all feel best executed the classic Scooby-Doo haunted house trope. It's "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" (which won our 60s/70s round) versus "Bravo Dooby Doo" (which won the 80s/90s round) versus "Night Terrors." I have a feeling "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" is going to come out way ahead as our winner, but it will be interesting to see how close it is in the end results!
Weekly Poll #163
It's time for our final poll of the Haunted House poll series! Next week, we'll be combining all three winners from today's poll and the previous two weeks, and facing them off against each other to determine the Scooby-Doo episode that does the classic haunted house trope best.
The results for last week's poll were very interesting and kind of all over the map. A majority of the options got three votes or less. "A Fit Night for Bats" and "The Sludge Monster from the Earth's Core" both got zero votes. "Scooby's Roots" got one vote; "The Hand of Horror" and "A Night Louse at the White House" each got two votes; and "Wedding Bell Boos," "A Bicycle Built for Boo!" and "Ghost Who's Coming to Dinner?" got three votes each.
Taking a look at the top 3, "The Were-Doo of Doo Manor" came in third place with seven votes. I was predicting this episode was going to win, but "Scoobygeist" ended up coming in second place with a total of 11 votes. Our winner this week got twice the amount of votes as any other option. "Bravo Dooby Doo" took the win last week, amassing a total of 22 votes!
Weekly Poll #162
It's time for the exciting second round of our Best Haunted House polls! Let's check in on our winner from part 1. "The Loch Ness Mess," "The Exterminator" and "The Ghoul, The Bat and the Ugly" all came in last place with one vote each. "The Mystery of Haunted Island" and "Nowhere to Hyde" were not too far behind in fifth place with 5 votes each. "Wednesday Is Missing" was our fourth place choice with 7 votes. For third place, we had a surprising tie between "What the Hex Going On?" and "Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner?" Each option got 10 votes, and I have to admit I'm excited "Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner?" made it so high! "Haunted House Hang-Up" just barely rose above those options to make second place with 11 votes. Our first place option received 28 votes, and wins the weekly poll for the second week in a row! Our winner is "A Night of Fright Is No Delight," which is the first of three episodes to move on to our final Winner's Circle poll on February 5!
