Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated

Have any of y'all watched this with your kids? Or for yourself? My kids love it, and it was a nice break from the original Scooby Doo. It has a lot for the adults stuck watching.

There is a lot of conspiracy fringe subject matter. Zecharia Sitchin and his Nibiru make a a HUGE appearance in the series. I thought it was great! They only did 2 seasons, and my kids (and I) were super bummed. Guess it was over the head of too many kids


If you have kids that are scared easily, may not be the best for them. But then again, mine can get scared by a little person dressed as ghost, but they did fine with this show.

I have not watched it yet.
But now, since you have alerted me to it, I guess that I will have to check it out!

It is on Netflix. We have watched the series 3 times. And it hasn't gotten old yet. Unlike the creepy movie version of Thumbelina that my 4 year old loves. It makes my skin crawl and I have banned it.

You are NOT alone in your assessment of Thumbelina.
What were they thinking?

Have you seen this 1940s Disney Sleepy Hollow cartoon?

Many animators and cartoon producers agree it's one of the best cartoons ever produced. It's mildly scary, maybe a bit much for very small children.

There was a brief Golden Age of animation. Here' a 1940 cartoon from MGM. Incredible animation.

The play by play of Thumbelina was too much! Lol. I found the Gilbert Godfried Beetle to be the most repulsive, and a big reason for my ban. Although, I'm not a feminist by current standards, I felt the whole movie to be horribly geared toward exaggerated gender roles. There's no way they'd get away with making that movie now!

On the other hand, I loved Sleepy Hollow as a kid. It was a staple in school during Halloween. I think I tried to have my girls watch it a couple years ago.

My six year old has been watching it on Netflix. I've watched a little of it with him. I like the fact that the show seems to make fun of itself at times. Still doesn't beat Gravity Falls though.

I didn't even know new ones are still being made!
I loved the old ones I watched as a kid. Wouldn't mind having them on dvd.

I think the intent was to run two seasons, which finished the story arc.

newer one now called 'Be Cool Scooby Doo', much lighter in tone, also good.

imho SD:MI is the greatest animated tv work ever. Almost as deep and good as BtVS. Great plots, great monsters, character exploration, all good, and fun. They managed to work a bunch of off-monsters (Hodag, Manticore, Krampus), parody/tributes (Humongunauts = Gargantuas, and a Twin Peaks homage), Vincent Price stuff, and an in-house ep wi Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman and the Funky Phantom, all wrapped around the overarching mystery of Crystal Cove and its origins.
I bought from Amazon. I highly recommend.

Great series.
My son and I watched it when it aired on Cartoon Network. He loved the episode with the Hex Girls. He used to sing the Phantzee Pants song about dancing in his pants for weeks after first seeing it.

Great series for those of us who grew up on the Doo.
I'm glad it ran its run and was done before it got too silly.

It is very self deprecating. But I also love so much how it has introduced my kids to the world of the unknown. They are fairly young, and so I don't expose them to a lot of my interests. But now they have a taste. And I think it's spurred a thirst for more. I grew up watching and reading about fringe subjects. But because I don't want scared kids wanting to sleep with me every night, they've been sheltered. However, that is changing. The oldest, 9, is starting to watch some programs with me. Checking out books about Atlantis. Stuff like that.

Awesome to hear. Unfortunately, I don't have my kids except for visits anymore. But this series was awesome for exposing the kiddos to the supernatural. Glad yours are taking an interest in things that do not have definite answers.

Maybe you could make it a "movie night" during a visit?
