Best Scooby-Doo series since the original
on September 29, 2010
I grew up watching Scooby-Doo cartoons on Saturday morning and I still love watching the original series (thanks to the Boomerang network). This series was updated but managed to retain the charm of the original. I consider it the first true successor to the original series as it stuck to the familiar concept of solving mysteries (those meddling kids). The animation and music is great (the theme song is sung by Simple Plan). Frank Welker reprised his role as voice of Fred (Jones) and Casey Kasem as the voice of Shaggy (Rogers). Thankfully, no Scrappy-Doo or other silliness like some of the Scooby related shows. Even the current show: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, which is nice to look at but the story with Velma and Shaggy now having a secret relationship is bizarre.
Back to What's New Scooby-Doo... For such a great show, I'm shocked that it only lasted three seasons. It is a cartoon the whole family can watch, which is getting harder and harder to find.
FYI: For some reason (as of 9/29/10), it is much cheaper to buy the individual seasons than to buy the Complete Series...
