YouTubing Scooby Doo Parodies

Scooby Doo Meets Johny Bravo
Jay and Silent Bob Scooby Doo
Jason Owns Scooby Doo (Adult Swim)
Fetal Scooby Doo (SNL)
Armstrong and Miller Scooby Doo
The Blair Witch Project Scooby Doo
"The Scooby Doo Project" Promo
Scooby Doo: Underworld

What could be better than watching Scooby Doo? Well, just about anything, actually. I have always liked all of the characters from the show and the general idea of the program, but I have not been able to watch more than five minutes of the show at a time since I was a little kid. Even for a cartoon, it is just kind of fluffy and silly. It is just too boring to watch, especially after they brought in Scrappy Doo. ***shudder***

That said, the show is still a highly visible plateau on the pop culture landscape, and as such is a potential treasure trove of parody possibilities - and I am just the guy to dig up those comedy nuggets of juicy pop culture goodness! Scooby Doo Meets Johnny Bravo was my favorite of those I found. Johnny Bravo is an infinitely better cartoon than Scooby Doo, but the combination of the two cartoons is sheer genius. The song that they play during the chase scene is great!

The Armstrong and Miller Show did a great parody the Scooby Doo phenomenon as well, updating the famous evening of telling ghost stories by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Percy Shelley, and Lord Byron during the Year Without a Summer to include the "Mystery, Inc." gang. Perhaps a little more predictable but still very funny was the Jay and Silent Bob Scooby Doo dream sequence.

Here are some minor examples of people imitating the characters and the theme song from the show. The funniest clip is the Scooby Doo Dance performed by a bunch of little girls in miniskirts and go-go boots. (They are all dressed as Daphne - there are no Velma's on the dance floor!) Somebody went to a lot of trouble to make all of those ridiculous outfits, but unfortunately the girls are poorly rehearsed. It is almost painful to watch.

Scooby-Doo Mystery Mix
Scooby-Doo in One Minute
Scooby-Doo Live on Stage
Scooby Doo Live!
Scooby Doo 1969 Theme Song
Scooby Doo - Tiki Scare hula
The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo
What's New Scooby Doo? - Hex Girls
Davy Jones on Scooby Doo
Scooby-Doo 2: Monster's Unleashed
Scooby Doo theme in Russian

The classic Charlie the Unicorn as Daphne is hilarious, and I quite liked the comedy cover of an old classic, Me & Scooby-Doo Down by the Graveyard.

My kids are scooby-doo freakazoids. One thing about the "What's New Scooby-Doo" series is that it usually has a really great score. It's not all 'kiddy'd up' if you know what I mean.

I do wonder whether the artists get sick of drawing hi-jinks on various forms of roller coasters. That get's a little dull.

And "A Pup Named Scooby Doo" is actually far more irritating than Scrappy. Really. It has a 'gouging eye-out' factor of 4.5 seconds.

Why the Scooby Doo live action movies secretly rock:

1) The man who played Shaggy was amazingly good.

2) Vhelma is finally shown to be the true hottie we always knew her to be.

3) Scrappy is in fact shown to be the figure of evil we suspected.

Jess Wundrun: It's sounds like you actually watch a lot more Scooby Doo than I do! I do seem to remember a lot of roller coaster sequences. Thankfully I have never seen "A Pup Named Scooby Doo". Sounds scary!

FranIAm: Scooby Day! Scooby Day! I want a Scooby Snack!

1) The man who played Shaggy was amazingly good.

Yes! He was great.

2) Velma is finally shown to be the true hottie we always knew her to be.

Velma Dooby Doo!

3) Scrappy is in fact shown to be the figure of evil we suspected.

They prove that Scrappy is not only evil, but that he is Dick Cheney evil.
