Scooby Doo

It’s always fun when figures of pop culture run along side Scooby-Doo and Co. The Mystery Machine gang have run into the likes of: KISS, The Harlem Globetrotters, John Cena, The Superfriends and many others (see complete list HERE).  In a long line of cameo/crossovers, comes an announcement of a NEW team-up, and one that hasn’t left fans this excited since sending Scrappy Doo behind bars (gawd, what an annoying character!). It was revealed that Scooby and the gang will crossover with another team of supernatural hunters next season (Yes, that pun was intended!). The Brothers Winchester, Sam and Dean, from CW’s Supernatural will be teaming-up Freddy, Velma, Shaggy, Daphne and Scooby-Doo for an adventure like no other.  (more…)

Everyone loves it when modern creators take classic characters and stories beloved by millions and update it all to fit in better with the modern artistic palate. That sentence, of course, is sarcasm. In any event, in a move that will surely divide people along strict partisan lines, DC Comics has announced that many of their top creators including Jim Lee, Jeff Porter, Amanda Connor, Howard Porter, and Evan “Doc” Shanner, are bringing back brand new versions of classic cartoons from Hanna Barbera. The Flintstones, Johnny Quest, Space Ghost, and Scooby Doo will all be back in new stories from DC Comics, and wait till you see the artwork! (more…)

Those wacky Predators are like the Scooby-Doo Gang of the universe – they seem to cross-over with just about anybody and anybody famous.  Over the course of their time in our pop-culture crosshairs, they’ve ran into the Aliens, Batman, Witchblade, Judge Dredd, Superman & the JLA, the Terminator, and even very recently, Archie and his crew from Riverdale.  There’s a ton more encounters that are encompassed in fan fiction, too; one particularly well-done version has recently hit online and is making the pop-culture world take notice.  (more…)

Like many people, Scooby-Doo has been a part of my life ever since I can remember.  When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get home after school to watch my favorite Scooby-Doo reruns, or for Saturday mornings to watch A Pup Named Scooby-Doo back when it was a brand new series and Saturday morning cartoons were king.  I loved all of the incarnations of the series but my favorite was The New Scooby-Doo Movies.  Every episode featured a guest star and watching my favorite superhero, Batman, working a case with my favorite teenaged sleuths (I wouldn’t discover The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew until a little later) was one of the most exciting things in my young life.  Those days are long gone but thanks to a new animated feature that will throw wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in the mix with the Mystery, Inc. crew, perhaps fans can relive a bit of the glory days.

And we’re back… from a slightly less lengthy break this time (we have to slowly ramp up your dosage or you’ll be overcome with sexual urges). Do you like robot love, comic book movies, Harrison Ford‘s body parts, Steven Seagal and Scooby Doo? Good for you, because we’re talking all about those things and more on RadioBastard!

Also, do you like details? You’re in luck! Here’s something close to that… sort of!

On the show this week, Jeremy and Jason discuss: (more…)

“Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We got some money to make now…”

Scooby Doo, the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, spawned two horrible live-action movies. Well, they weren’t THAT bad. They did feature Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne (score) and Linda Cardellini as Velma (double score). Seeing my cartoon crushes come to life made my affections a little less disturbing. But, I digress…

That ghoul hunting mutt with the munchies (Scooby Doo) and his company of typical teenage archetypes, is – despite any recent films or series – a life long property. What with adults who first grew up on the show, today’s spastic kids with attention deficits, and to our future generations (whom, I’m sure by then will have the awareness of a potato). I mean honestly, how can anyone not love a group of different classed youths getting high all the time (they all thought Scooby could talk, of course they were all high) coming together to solve some mysteries? Scoobs is such a bankable property, and Warner Bros knows it, which is why the studio will be capitalizing on another film (again).

Like the first two movies the film will be a live-action and CGI hybrid, and the studio has hired Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) to write the script. The producers of the original movie, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, are back again as well. No idea what the story will be this time around, I’m sure it will see the Mystery Inc. team cracking the case of some ghostly crimes.

I, myself, have already waived this new movie off. Talent involved signals a passionless turn-and-burn cash grab. So the hell with this, I say. I do wonder, though, with Scooby being such easy money if one of them porno companies will ever make an adult parody? It would have everything we like about Mystery Inc, but with far more sex and better story than anything the creatives of this knew film could put out. Amerite?

Elliott is going to have to pedal fast if he wants to stay ahead of the undead shambling because all the magic fingers in the world aren’t going to save him now. E.T. gonna hunger for flesh.
