    They're redoing Scooby Doo with all new animation and have a main antagonist whose minions face the gang every episode.

    [image=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f0/Shaggy-scooby-getaclue-2006.jpg]

    And here's the whole gang:

    [image=http://www.newsarama.com/AniShorts/scooby_and_gangat73dpi.jpg]

    Is it my imagination or does Daphne resemble a BRATZ doll somewhat?

    Now I've got nothing against updating something, but this is a little ridiculous. "What's New Scooby Doo" was something of an update and was perfectly good, as where the cartoon movies such as "Scooby Doo on Zombie Island" and "Scooby DOo and The Witch's Ghost".

    And aparently, according to wikipedia, Shaggy is now a millionnaire and has pimped out the Mystery Machine into some kind of quasi James Bond transforming car. And Scooby snacks have nano technology in them which do random things to scooby, such as make him inflate or shrink him.

    This is a mini summary of the series:

    "Shaggy and Scooby-Doo have a mission: armed with an updated Mystery Machine, a loyal robot servant named Robi, their new riches, and the new and improved Scooby Snacks, they must stop the evil plans of Phinius Phibes and save the world."


    Why do studios feel the need to "update" classics just for the sake of cashing in?

    So the creator dies less than a week ago, and already they're spitting on his grave. Nice

    Is there any need for yet another remake? The one they show on CBBC these days is bad enough.

    The old Scooby Doo where are You? series was the best.
    After that it went downhill.

    And I'll bet they'll get away with it if it weren't for some meddling kids! :p

    This is wrong. Barbarra's corpse isn't even cold yet, and they're out to "reinvent" it...People have been trying to reinvent the wheel, and look where it's got them.

    DarthArsenal6: I think i'm the only other person in the world who remembers that 30 second sketch from Spitting Image 14 years ago!

    Very vague and random, but it's nice to know I'm not the only one who remembers they're oh so funny "Scully snacks" joke....


    If you want to see the REAL updated Scooby gang, go watch this episode of "The Venture Brothers". http://www.dailymotion.com/bobnino/video/xkouk_the-venture-bros-s2e11

    Don't know if i'm the only person who's a massive fan of a cartoon that (in my opinion) ranks up with classic Simpsons and South Park as pure comedy fried gold.

    If you want to check out previous episodes (and you should), here's the link. http://www.tv-links.co.uk/Venture%20Brothers_links.html
