They were short, they were weird, they had real monsters, but...I like weird. And real monsters. And silly little series that are weird in a fun way.

I'm...not sure what you're talking about. Do you mean the segments with Scrappy-Doo that aired on The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show* (which later aired as a half hour show with the "three shorts" format)? In any case, not all of them had real monsters...

*"And Scrappy, too!"

That's the one. A lot of them did, which some people like to zero in on for some reason or another. How did you feel about them?

Every single time this thread starter makes a new thread about this precise subject people always jump in to tell him how he's made the thread all wrong without bothering to answer his original question.

As to the question at hand I was never a huge Scooby Doo fan but I liked the Scrappy episodes better simply because the ones with Fred, Daphne and Velma were all so boring.

(sigh)...

For your information, Fone Bone, I did no such thing! I needed clarification as to what exactly the poster meant before I could give them an answer. Did YOU even bother to read my post?

Or maybe you were just speaking in general? If so, it didn't sound like it.

As to your question, CoolCaper, I like every version of Scooby-Doo*. I will say that the second, third seasons of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo--and yes, even the fourth season (with Scrappy and Yabba-Doo^)--are definitely a fun experience.

*Although I have no intention of watching Be Cool, Scooby-Doo after what I've heard about it; I'm not quite a fan of Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated either...

^ At the end of most stories, he says "Yibbity-Yabbity-DOO!", since the other thing would be, you know, too obvious...

Actually, it was a half hour show for the first five weeks, before it became "The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show".

Moved this thread to "Saturday Morning Forever", as it's a discussion of the old Scooby Doo of the 80's, not the new shows.

I was speaking in general. Sorry for singling you out. Also thank you for offering your opinion once you got the clarification. That was cool of you.

Just noticed the MTV Movies & TV Awards will be airing on Nick at Nite, they add more networks to simulcast it every year.
This week was really good for me! Not only is Amphibia premiering very soon, but we're also getting Banjo & Kazooie in Smash Brothers!

Coincidentally, both involve a tall brown character with a backpack travelling with a smaller talking animal companion.
I'm not entirely convinced Men in Black International is a finished product.
Me: Oh BOY. I can't wait to watch the LIVE premiere of Amphibia tomorrow at 10! I'm so proud of myself for avoiding the first few episodes on the app.
*sees that I scheduled a doctor's appointment for the same time tomorrow morning*
Me: -_-
