Weekly Poll #121
So we're taking a little break from the sports/best villain poll for something different this week. This was admittedly a challenging poll to make, as I couldn't include every possible option people might have as you'd be scrolling forever lol. I sort of picked and chose the most common ridiculously bad costumes there have been throughout the franchise. However, if there are any you feel should be in the running that I missed, please tell me in the comments so I can add it as an option! I will include pictures of each villain below as I realize some of these are from obscure Scrappy shorts that people may not remember. I didn't include any villains that were intentionally comedic (Piranha Goat, the Vampire Mummy Werewolf from Outer Space, etc.).
Also, here are the results from our March Madness poll - which is a tie for first and last place!
What is your favorite basketball episode?
The Loch Ness Mess - 23
The Mystery of Haunted Island - 23
The Ghostly Creep from the Deep - 19
Basketball Bumblers - 4
All of the basketball episodes are awful, basketball in general is awful, in fact, all sports are just plain awful - 4
I mentioned in a comment on here recently that the skeleton's movements from "The Spooky Fog" was not creepy in the slightest, because it looks like he's just taking his nightly stroll. I have made a GIF so you can share in my enjoyment lol.

Cheese Monster and Burger Monster don't deserve to be there imo.

I explained the first part in the comment below, but I purposefully left the question open to interpretation in case people liked all of the bad villains I chose and wanted to go in the more "silly" villain route. I personally enjoy the Cheese Monster and Burger Monster as well.
3/20/2022 03:29:44 am
This is a strange question. For me a villain can be silly and still decent. The Cheese monster falls into that category. If we're talking bad, then that would be Carl and Tony, that whole episode was just awful.
3/20/2022 11:01:29 am
I decided to leave it open to interpretation as not all of the people find the bad villains I listed to be bad (see the comment below praising the Sheet Ghost as an example), so I wanted to provide another way to answer the question if people preferred. I also find the Cheese Monster and Burger Monster silly but still decent.
3/20/2022 01:32:31 pm
Fair enough, thanks for the explanation. It confused me is all, but I'm easily confused.
3/20/2022 08:04:15 am
You seem to be asking along the lines of worst costume or dumbest concept for a villain, and I voted along those lines. But I will die on the hill that Big Bob Oakley, alias "the actor," wanted in seven states, is the silliest and worst in-universe villain. To refresh recollections, Bob was searching the Franken castle for its jewels in 'A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts.'
3/20/2022 11:38:40 am
Yep, that's what I'm asking. Sorry the question wasn't clear! I left it open for people to answer "silliest villain concept" if they wanted to, but the question was more leaning in the direction of worst villain concept.
3/20/2022 09:08:58 am
All of the above
3/20/2022 09:15:50 am
As hilarious as it is, it always comes back to the Sheet Ghost for me.
3/20/2022 11:03:47 am
I 100% agree with you and that is my pick as well. It's hilariously bad IMO.
3/20/2022 09:48:26 am
Sheet Ghost for me. His design is hilarious
3/20/2022 10:36:38 am
I like all of these villains to some extent except for the burger monster.
3/20/2022 11:05:28 am
You have a really interesting perspective on the Sheet Ghost! I personally found the fact that he was just a guy who threw a sheet over his head a bit lazy, but you make a good argument that the thumping noises add to the creepiness of the episode. I also liked Asa Shanks.

5) McGurk Brothers - " They're not heavy, they're McGurk Brothers.
3/20/2022 11:44:59 am
Hahaha I would say my least favorites are:
3/20/2022 02:08:14 pm
I'll second your list here. I also hate Carl and Tony because I DESPISE the episode they are in lol
3/20/2022 11:35:41 am
I could not put Carl and Tony in my bottom five above. They work for the most part for me.
3/20/2022 11:46:06 am
I wasn't a huge fan of Carl and Tony, but I think it just comes down to differences in what we're looking for during this era of the show. I remember you said you liked the more adventure-driven episodes, whereas I prefer the mystery aspect which is the main reason why Carl and Tony didn't work for me.
3/20/2022 09:42:01 pm
I just realized I apologized in the other thread but it's deleted now so nobody will see it lol. Just wanted to say sorry to y'all for posting about the NFT thing. I honestly had no idea what NFTs were and didn't realize they could be a bit sketchy. Thanks Matt and Becker for letting me know, and the post has been deleted.

No worries at all, you were just sharing news after all
3/20/2022 09:55:48 pm
Hate to disagree with anyone but...
3/20/2022 09:58:20 pm
Also I do not think the Cheese Monster, The Ghost of Juan Carlos, or The Burger Monster were that bad at all.
3/21/2022 07:02:01 am
I quite liked the Cheese Monster and Burger Monster, but I wasn't a big fan of the Ghost of Juan Carlos. He just looked like a regular person to me and not very much like a ghost.
3/21/2022 09:09:39 am
I loved Big Bob Oakley, and liked the cheese monster and burger monster
3/21/2022 05:31:47 pm
I also enjoyed Big Bob Oakley, although I really like LetThereBeFranken's detailed argument/opinion on the matter, which is why I added it as an option haha.
3/21/2022 05:16:43 am
I hate the angry doctor villain, just because he's made to be the villain when he's chasing Scooby and Shaggy after they did something wrong to begin with.
3/21/2022 07:03:24 am
I never liked those episodes either. Same with the angry carnival owner. He's only chasing them because they ate all the food, which they shouldn't have done since it was their job to sell it lol.
3/21/2022 04:25:16 pm
I have that problem with the shorts in general. Half of the time, their problems were caused either by them being rude, destructive, foolish, or all of the above
3/21/2022 05:40:27 pm
Agreed. It began to make the characters a bit unlikeable in some situations, at least in my opinion.
3/21/2022 11:19:35 pm
Like how are we supposed to feel bad for Shaggy in Double Trouble Date for example? Dude literally set up two dates for the same day and tricked one into going on a date with Scooby

Does anybody know when Straight Outta Nowhere first aired on Teletoon? I see that it aired yesterday (Sunday), but I don't know if this was the first time.
3/21/2022 06:42:13 am
I’m going for Sheet Ghost. As soon as I saw him, I’m like wow I already know that it’s Asa Shanks.
3/21/2022 03:23:21 pm
As hilarious as it was, I'm picking the Sheet Ghost lol. Because it was a guy, in a SHEET! Like, don't insult Mystery Inc's intelligence like that! Lol.
3/21/2022 05:33:59 pm
Haha, I ultimately voted Sheet Ghost as you could interpret the question in multiple ways, but yeah, Carl and Tony were among my least favorites as well as their presence didn't bring a mystery at all. The McGurk Brothers are my least favorite as their characters were basically just walking stereotypes of hillbillies. They didn't add anything to the episode and their antics were not entertaining at all to me.
