I’m excited to have BigScoobyDooFan with us today! BigScoobyDooFan is a regular commenter on the blog from the UK, and also writes Scooby-Doo fanfiction!
Check out his responses below:
1. What is your name?
My name is Bigscoobydoofan! And I am one too!
2. How did you get into Scooby-Doo?
Well, it all started in Year 1 (or kindergarten if you’re in America) and I remember one day that we sat down and watched a movie on the smart-screen. That movie was actually Scooby Doo, Where’s My Mummy?! I instantly became obsessed, and begged my mum for the dvd of it so that I could watch it again at home. I started growing this strong love for Scooby Doo, and the rest is history!
3. What is your favorite Scooby-Doo episode and film? Why?
Gee! This is really hard! I’d say Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated Season 2 episode 13 Wrath of the Krampus is my favourite. I loved the twist that it was the gang all along! And it was so cleverly executed. I thought it was Pericles at first but then I was in shock when I saw that it wasn’t! My favourite MOVIE is actually Scooby Doo! Pirates Ahoy! I don’t know why but I like it a lot!
4. What ways are you involved in the Scooby fandom online?
I am a bit of a fan fiction guy. I love thinking of my own Scooby Doo episodes in my head! On FanFiction.Net, I will be releasing some stories there. If you want to check them out, my username is ScrappyisCrappy 😂
5. In your opinion, what is the best series or era of Scooby?
IMO, the best series is Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated. It’s a very dark version of Scooby Doo, but still manages to keep that comedic charm that the original series had. I know truly that the best era is the 1998-2001 direct-to-DVD films. They are all amazing in their own way, with Zombie Island being grotesque and creepy!
6. If they could make a sequel to one Scooby-Doo series or film, what would it be?
I don’t think they should make a sequel to any movie or series. I actually don’t see anything wrong with their endings. But I do think that if they were going to make Return to Zombie island, they should’ve at least made it as good as the previous one!
7. What direction would you like to see the franchise go in the future?
I’d like to see a series where they take every Scooby Doo Where Are You episode and put it in the perspective of the villain. That would be cool!
8. Who is your favorite member of the gang and why?
Definitely Shaggy. Let’s just get this fact out of the way first. HE IS A GOD.
Second of all, this guy is hilarious. I love his running gags with Scooby a lot! I also like that they don’t dumb him down to the point where his brain is the size of a peanut. He has both a little bit of wisdom and stupidity to make a nice mix of a character.
9. What is your favorite villain? Why?
The 10,000 volt ghost. I like the simple design of him and the whole Voltner backstory was great too.
10. In your opinion, who is the best recurring (non-gang) character in the franchise?
The Hex Girls! Their music is great and they just have this epic vibe when they appear on screen. I especially like the battle they had with Rude Boy and the Ska Tastics in Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
11. Do you have a Scooby-Doo collection? If so, what’s in it?
I used to have a collection but it’s all gone now.
The DVD of Chill out, Scooby Doo!
The DVD of Scooby Doo! Pirates Ahoy!
The DVD of Scooby Doo! Where’s My Mummy?! ;-)
The DVD of a few episodes of The New Scooby Doo Movies
I had a few Scooby Doo playsets like a haunted house and a lighthouse. I also had a scooby doo pinball machine! I remember one Christmas at my grandma’s house, I got this scooby doo figure pack, which included the whole gang and a few monsters like red beard and the 10,000 volt ghost. Unfortunately, the dog chewed Daphne!
But most special of all was my stuffed Scooby Doo toy. I always played with him and ate dinner with him, and hugged him lots. Heck, we even watched Scooby Doo together sometimes! I lost him one day, and it still upsets me now........
Anyway, moving on!
12. What do you think has made the franchise so popular that it’s still going strong after 50 years?
I think it had a good mystery for everyone to enjoy. Let’s face it. One of the key ingredients to an episode is the mystery. It’s kept the viewers using their problem solving skills and knowledge.
13. What is one fun fact about you in real life?
I make Lego Stop Motions! If you want to check them out, my channel name is Kool Kyas.
14. Please feel free to share anything else you’d like to here!
Here’s something random but I just need to address it. Remember the vampire episode in Be Cool, Scooby Doo!? Did anyone else notice that Pacco completely disappeared after the explanation? I’m worried. Was he arrested or is he still around town doing dodgy stuff?
Thank you so much for having me on the spotlight, WWV!
