Scooby and Scrappy-Poo, 5 June 2005

I've always loved (and I still do by the way) Scooby-Doo and his gang. The first series, which started in 1969, were funny and had interesting monsters. Of course all the monsters turned out to be criminals dressed up as monsters to scare people away, but... who cares? 'Scooby and Scrappy-Doo' began in 1979. Fred, Daphne and Velma were put aside for most of the adventures and Scrappy-Doo filled the gap. Scooby and Shaggy (the two best things of the entire series) remained.

Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy's voices are very well done, but the voices of the additional characters aren't. For instance, the 'cat man' (episode 21, season 2) sounds terrible and annoying. Although made ten years later, the animation didn't improve. It actually got worse. The drawing is bad and irregular and the same goes for the animation itself. And there's even more to dislike. Especially if you don't like hearing "p-p-puppy p-p-power" and "i'll splat him" coming from Scrappy every two or three minutes.

A bigger part for Scrappy is probably one of the things which destroyed this series. But this is also the fault of the script writers. Most of the episodes (except the ones from season 1) haven't got anything to do with ghouls and ghosts, the jokes are bad and the characters constantly say basically the same.

So, to sum it all up: bad drawing and animation, bad jokes, Scrappy and bad episodes. Stay away from this! It's very unpleasant.

4 out of 10 / 1* out of 5*
