Lest you think I’ve taken leave of my senses, and have started to watch Scooby-Doo Where Are You? by myself with a hot cup of
doctored coffee, that is not the case. Rest assured, dear readers. :) My daughter has “discovered” Scooby-Doo and now I am being forced lovingly watching the episodes with her.
Now to be fair, I totally and with full-fledged abandon, watched these Scooby-Doo episodes as a kid. As a small child, I looooooved this show! (By the way, can I just say how surreal it is to watch a show with your kid that you yourself watched as a kid? Whoa…)
So without further adieu and with absolute beloved humor, I offer the following observations about Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?
♦ Why was Velma always losing her glasses? Like, literally every episode, you can always hear her exclaim “My glasses! Where are my glasses?” Inevitably, Scooby or Shaggy would find them and give them back to her, but not before hijinks would ensue in the meantime.
♦ Does no one notice that Scooby-Doo talks?
♦ What are Scooby Snacks and what the heck are in them that will make Scooby do anything that is asked of him and why does Shaggy want to eat them as well? Hmmmm… well the original episodes are from 1969, so…
♦ Why are they always running?
♦ You would think that every single house on this show is not only a mansion, but a decrepit, falling-down one at that, which is perpetually haunted.
♦ Seriously, a talking dog? Why does no one think this is weird? Is everyone eating the Scooby Snacks??
♦ These meddling kids drive around aimlessly in a van that always seems to have a full gas tank (unless the episode conveniently calls for it not to be) Mwah ha, ha, ha…
♦ Why are Fred, Velma, and Daphne always so surprised when the culprit is unmasked? Did you really think you were dealing with a ghost? Really? This far in??
♦ Scooby-Doo can talk. Sure, it sounds like he has marbles in his mouth, but still, the dog…is…conversing. #ruh #roh
♦ Velma’s choice of clothing. I mean… All the orange and red together… Never mind the whole turtle-neck sweater with a flared skirt and knee-socks combo. Oh Velma…
So there you have it. My observations :) This show still make me smile and honestly, I really do love watching it all over again with my kiddo :)
Do you remember Scooby-Doo Where Are You? What do remember about it?
