In "reality," I think Daphne and Velma don't care at all for that limp-dick.

Somebody hasn't seen Mystery Incorporated aka the best Scooby Doo series period, which fleshed out everyone, including miraculously, Fred.

My reaction when someone uses a rape example against me, when I commented on something not at all related to it.

In "Scoobynatural" Velma was shamelessly throwing herself at Sam.

Ok, that's fair, because I was sceptical of the show too until I caught a few episodes with my son. It's an absolute blast, a subversive self aware take on the characters with a satisfying ovarching mystery and mythology that's also absolutely hilarious, hell the show has an extended parody of Twin Peaks and they even got Michael J Anderson to cameo in the show, give it a look some time if you're able, I wouldn't suggest it if I didn't think it was worth your time.

And Jesus Christ the guest stars, Gary Cole as Fred's dad, Patrick Warburton as Sherriff Bronson Stone, Jeffrey Combs as an HP Lovecraft parody, Harlan Ellison as himself, Lewis Black as Mr. E, the list goes on and on and on.

Anybody else want to chime in with reasons Dieter would be crazy not to give Mystery Inc. a chance? This was all just stuff off the top of my head. I really would equate it to what Batman The Animated Series did for Batman cartoons that used to be fucking Superfriends and whatever, but for Scooby Doo. It builds on everything good about the old cartoons adds better storytelling and jetisons things that don't work, it really is an impressive couple seasons of cartoon storytelling.

I love Lansdale btw, I feel like he's one of the most underrated genre writers currently working. I have absolutely no fucking clue why every new book of his isn't at the top of bestseller lists because he equals and in many cases surpasses the guys who make those lists, Stephen King in particular who has a far worse batting average and similarly vast body of work.

"Thought it was penned by Lansdale because that's how it was widely solicited"

There are more guest-stars and cameos from HB characters than in Future Quest; and almost all brilliantly done.
Off the top of my head, we get; Moby Dick( with the boys and & Scooby the seal), The Quests and Blue Falcon w/Dino-Mutt! We get tons of the HB mystery crews from Speed Buggy to Jabberjaw. Tons of cameos throughout the series starting from the beach scene in the second episode.
The only real downside was that they obviously got no warning of being cancelled; so while they had been setting up the next season; they had to rush and try to give us at least a sort of happy ending.

Now, try to defend the train-wreck that was What's Cool Scooby-Doo; and I'll have to disown you. . . :roll:

Yeah, it's best not to ask, but judging from the gif you posted I think you already have the mental picture. :P :wink:
