What is it the kids these days say? "Haters gonna hate"? Is that "Jiggy" enough? Am I speaking "Dope"?

The title of the cartoon was just "Scooby-Doo And Scrappy-Doo", and it introduced the world to a cultural MILESTONE known as Scrappy-Doo.

Now I don't have much of an opinion in any direction regarding the entire Scooby-Doonivers of cartoons... Scooby-Doo is not as beloved to me as it is to so many others. To me, Scooby-Doo was a bottom feeder. Channel m7 has College Football, channel 5 has Golf, channel 12 has some religious show on... oh, Scooby-Doo is on channel 4. And since I'm certainly not going to waste this sunny Saturday morning on dragging my fat little 7-year-old butt outside like my Mom keeps saying I should do, I guess I'll watch Scooby-Doo.

Scrappy-Doo was a bit annoying, sure... but no more annoying than a cowardly hippie with an eating disorder and a giant dog with a speech impediment (imho).

I never liked Scooby at all, honestly. Even as a kid I found the show really boring and kind of badly animated. (I know, I know....looking at the things I LIKED to watch, I wasn't exactly an animation connoiseur, but....eh.) As an adult I've tried to see what it is so many others seem to see in it, and I just....can't. I think a lot of it was that most of the guest stars were people I didn't recognize as a kid so I couldn't understand half of the jokes, and as an adult now, the references just seem dated and cheesy -- and not in the good, nostalgic way. :/

Sorry Scoob fans, I'll never be able to share your corner. :(
