I enjoyed this episode! Billy Dee's "Cool School" was cute and I liked him as a guest star. The villain was just okay to me. We've already had so many pterodactyls (oddly one in another episode with a winter scene from Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!) that it really didn't feel like anything special to me. I thought the culprit was pretty easy to figure out. There were a lot of cute scenes in this episode, but I definitely wouldn't say the episode was epic or anything. This ranks 32/47 for me.

I am about to be knocked down by a mass amount of people because of the things I have to say
4/5/2021 04:17:44 pm
I have no urge to fight you haha. I didn't hate the episode by any means, I just found certain parts of it to be kind of bland.
4/5/2021 04:20:57 pm
Do you think the walking scene was a reference to the original walk cycle or am I going mad?
4/5/2021 10:05:54 pm
It was definitely a reference to the gang's walking pattern.
4/5/2021 05:21:24 pm
Glad you enjoyed it. I enjoyed it myself actually but there were just a lot of elements in the episode I found way too concerning for the show’s future to really like it I guess
4/5/2021 05:24:23 pm
Yeah I mean I don't blame you there, what is next for this great dane and his four meddling friends? We've got a courage crossover coming but then what? What will the next show be?
4/5/2021 08:30:03 pm
That’s a good point. What I was really trying to refer to was how the main structure of the episodes in Guess Who are feeling way too common. I just wish they would mix it up more. They have awesome ideas and I’d hate to see them squandered
4/5/2021 10:07:09 pm
There's not really much of a future for Guess Who given there's only 5 episodes left, haha, but I know what you mean. My personal theory that I doubt is true is that it's going to a reboot of The Scooby-Doo Show, given Be Cool was supposed to be a reboot of Where Are You (according to JCB) and this is a reboot of The New Scooby-Doo Movies haha.
4/5/2021 11:51:03 pm
Well maybe "the future of" was a pretty confusing way of saying it
4/6/2021 01:41:09 am
@Bigscoobydoofan Well, the next show is technically "Velma". But as far as an actual Scooby gang series, we'll see. They usually announce shows the year before they premiere anyway. Whatever next show they concoct, be it "Scooby-Doo: The Wrath of the Scrappy" or "Shaggy and Scooby-Doo: Dr. Phines' Retribution" or "A Nightmare on Scoob Street", it won't be too long till we hear about it.
4/6/2021 10:06:54 am
Yes! There needs to be some Scooby-Dum if they ever do a Scooby-Doo Show reboot haha.
4/6/2021 11:55:30 am
Lol, maybe not The Wrath of the Scrappy, that would just be WB tarnishing him even more. I'd actually watch a sequel with Phineas Phines returning though. And Freddy Krueger up against the gang, oh man haha
4/6/2021 11:58:25 am
Okay, yeah, "Wrath of the Scrappy" would be ridiculous lol. The other two sounded kinda cool though. It would be interesting to see Phibes again given we never found out what happened to him.
4/7/2021 09:48:59 am
Phineas Phibes would be cool to see again
4/5/2021 04:21:50 pm
This episode was COOL no pun intended. I’ve noticed in this episode, when there were trying to walk cool, is like they have always been walking ever since Where Are You. Even Daphne said “we only know the one walk”.
4/5/2021 04:26:57 pm
4/5/2021 10:07:30 pm
The "we only know the one walk" line was super clever haha.
4/5/2021 04:31:39 pm
In the begging of this episode they were trying to figure out what the surprise is. Shaggy asked the Abominable Snowman. That has to be a callback to Chill Out Scooby Doo.
4/5/2021 04:36:54 pm
Yeah, I forgot to mention it but that was definetely it!
4/5/2021 10:07:51 pm
I thought about Chill Out too during that scene haha.
4/5/2021 05:03:45 pm
A pretty average episode. My biggest complaint was the slow start, specifically the learning how to be cool part. My only other issue is that the next time I hear the word cool, it'll be too soon.
4/5/2021 05:09:08 pm
Yah they did overused the word cool to much but it fits the episode.
4/5/2021 10:08:17 pm
The word "cool" was definitely overused in this episode haha.
4/5/2021 05:06:30 pm
I realized another connection. In this episode they did dentist disguise to fool the pterodactyl. In A Scary Night With A Snow Beast Fright Shaggy and Scooby did a dentist disguise to fool the snow beast.
4/5/2021 10:09:15 pm
I noticed that too! I kind of wonder with some of these references if they're actually callbacks or just coincidences given there are so many Scooby episodes out there.
4/6/2021 01:48:08 am
Some of them are probably coincidences. Like, the dentist disguise was great in Snow Beast Fright, but I'm not sure who would think of doing that gag (in this episode of all of them) just as a reference, rather than it just being the writer's random idea for the Scooby and Shaggy disguise of the week, which happens to have been done before in >50 years.
4/6/2021 10:07:41 am
That's more the direction I lean as well. So many things have been done in the 50+ years of Scooby that sometimes I think it's hard for them to not accidentally overlap a little with something else that's been done.
4/5/2021 06:41:40 pm
Can I please have the link to this episode please?
4/5/2021 07:18:56 pm
Check out the comments on today's fun fact, Peralaan posted the link there.
4/5/2021 07:22:16 pm
4/5/2021 11:38:42 pm
What’s the next one we’ll be getting after this? Thank you so much Peralaan your work is so invaluable and integral to keeping us sane lol
4/5/2021 11:54:26 pm
Teletoon is starting to air reruns so nothing in the near future.
4/5/2021 08:46:17 pm
I do believe this episode does show a a good message. We are all cool in our own way and we don’t have to change the way we are to be cool. Billy Dee Williams said we are all cool on the inside and he is right.
4/5/2021 10:09:54 pm
It is a very good message and one we should definitely all live by! <3
4/6/2021 02:55:08 am
I enjoyed this episode but yet again it was nothing special.
4/6/2021 07:13:08 am
Yah I felt the use of pterodactyl again was to repetitive. Like, what if the monster was a Wendigo instead.
4/6/2021 10:09:26 am
@Jayden I totally agree with you that the setting wasn't used to the level it could have been. A school on a mountain is super unique and never been done before, yet it didn't feel all that special to me.
4/8/2021 01:19:52 am
Have we ever had a Wendigo-like monster in Scooby-Doo before? I don't remember
4/8/2021 10:37:33 am
Nope, we haven't.
4/6/2021 03:16:37 am
Was it only me who found it weird at the unmasking Billy was just holding the mask and smiling while Velma explained XD
4/6/2021 10:08:24 am
I can't say I noticed that part, lol.
4/6/2021 10:43:03 am
4/6/2021 12:51:57 pm
Totally not cool, unless you fancy a drinking game surrounding the word 'cool'. 45/46 for me, Guess Who has ultimately been more a miss than a hit for me and WB are slowly destroying Scooby Doo.
4/6/2021 12:59:09 pm
Oh wow, it wasn't a great episode but I didn't think it was that bad to say it's destroying Scooby. Your opinion makes sense though haha. What episode haven't you seen yet? There's 47 out and I could probably give you the link if you're missing one.
4/7/2021 04:58:39 am
My mistake, should be 46/47. What nerked me with this episode was just how stupid and lazy the premise was. The repetition of the word cool drove me bonkers after 30 seconds. The problem is this episode isn't alone in its poor writing and lazy script and most the recent movies have been below par as well and a lot of it seems like political correctness gone mad along with too much pandering to the old episodes and not being bothered to actually come up with new ideas. I mean they don't even explain to my knowledge why the hell a Pteradactyl is attacking the school in the first place. Be Cool Velma would have had a meltdown over that!
4/7/2021 09:17:00 am
Yeah, I had a similar issue with the episode about them not really giving any lore behind the pterodactyl, it was just a random pterodactyl. It's clear they don't give a lot of thought in some episodes to the mystery.
4/6/2021 01:22:38 pm
The Turkish version of Falling Star Man is up, and that episode looks pretty promising. The main things I noticed were the Alien looking a lot more weird than in that one trailer and there is a pretty funny involvement of doughnuts at the end.
4/6/2021 01:32:25 pm
Yeah, it looks like a great episode! The alien definitely looks a lot more weird than the scene shown in the trailer.
4/7/2021 09:38:41 am
where did you find it?
4/7/2021 09:45:52 am

Wait so did you watch the whole episode?
4/6/2021 05:51:24 pm
Just skimmed through it
4/13/2021 07:45:31 am
Hey Wildwind I just thought of another idea for a monster that could’ve been in this episode instead of a pterodactyl. What do you think of a flying snow specter? It can be based if the Spector of Shadow Canyon from Camp Scare.
4/13/2021 09:49:22 am
I think that would have been a much better villain than the pterodactyl!
5/9/2022 05:27:27 pm
I agree... but I was thinking maybe a banchee would have been a much better villain choice for this episode.
5/9/2022 05:29:56 pm
That could have been cool!
