Hey all! I'm a big Scooby-Doo and Hanna Barbera fan, and have been for many years now. (Penelope Pitstop, Top Cat, and Laff-A-Lympics being some of my non-Scooby favorites) Actually, when I first started watching Scooby at around 3 or 4 years old, I was terrified of the villains and monsters, and even had to shut the TV off! But something about the gang's dynamic made me switch it back on a few moments later, and after I realized the villains were just criminals in masks, I warmed up to the show; and have loved it ever since. (Although, "The Backstage Rage" still creeps me out to this day!)
I think Scrappy gets a bad rep for little to no good reason. In universe, he's actually pretty intelligent, although a little too bold and pig-headed. He never fears the monsters and ghosts, and, the few times they actually do "let him at 'em," he really holds his own. I'd like to think that he could take out a whole group of baddies a la the white rabbit from Monty Python if they'd let him!
As a moderator of the forums over at www.BricksinMotion.com and a long-time member of the www.CivFanatics.com and raven.theraider.net (Edit: which is unfortunately down atm), I'm fairly acquainted with BB, and forums in general. Just thought I'd introduce myself/say hello, and stop ghostin' & start postin'!
