Scooby-Doo on cocaine


Have you ever asked yourself how your favorite childhood cartoon show is doing now? Well if it is Scooby-Doo you might be disappointed about how things have turned out for the 1969 animated show.

Scooby-Doo has been playing on TV for decades and has captivated American children and adults to follow the Mystery Gang on their trip to decode supposedly supernatural events that are haunting a place or thing.

The original name of the cartoon was Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! made by Hanna-Barbera Productions and written by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears.

The series was a success and the popular show was passed on to Warner Brothers.

Many of us grew up watching the show and enjoyed its mystery and comedy.

We mostly recognize two of the many versions of the show: Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! which aired on CBS during 1969 – 1970, and Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated, which aired on the Cartoon Network from 2010 – 2013.

The newest show from the franchise is Be Cool, Scooby-Doo, which integrates the same four teenage characters and dog from the original cartoon. The characters were redesigned during their last summer break before heading off to college, encountering monsters along the way.

The plot, however, stays rather the same, although many people think the few tweaks done to the characters were a little too much. For example, some say that visually, Scooby-Doo looks unpleasant, or worse, as if he were on drugs.

“Their eyes are so big and their character designs look terrible,” said Karla Lopez, a senior in the Medical Academy. “They do look like they are on some type of drugs and not the good kind.”

“The character design is poor,” said Web Design student Ke’von Burk. “They should have kept the original design and just improved the quality.”

I agree with those who would like a better overall remake so that the characters look more appealing.

Scooby-Doo, where are you … really?
