But I’m sure we’ve all watched at least one ep of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, wherein the Gang solve mysteries and meet unlikely celebrities. This raises an interesting question for the Bureau….
Several updated Scooby videos have appeared in recent years, particularly popular since the inexplicable success of the big-budget Scooby film. These videos have the gang as young adults, cruising in an updated (and wired) Mystery Machine, once again solving improbable enigmas.
What if they updated the first-ever Scooby sequel series, The New Scooby-doo Movies? In the original series, they met Batman, the Addams Family, Sonny and Cher, Mama Cass, Davey Jones, the Three Stooges, Jeannie, and others. Whom would you want to see them work alongside in the hypothetical Even Newer Scooby-doo Movies?
I’ll go with the obvious: the Scoobies from Buffy. Preproduction work was done on an aborted Buffy cartoon, and the actual series ended with the gang heading off in a schoolbus. The Slayer bus could easily cross paths with the Mystery Machine.
It would be worth it just for Velma and Kennedy’s inevitable “brains vs brawn” rivalry over Willow.
