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.
