Ho-wdy, Meddling Kids!
I don’t know about you cats, but I think Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated is HIGH-LY underrated!
There are more incarnations of Scooby-Doo then there are stars in the sky, but Mystery Incorporated tried to shake things up, while still staying true to the spirit of Scooby-Doo. Cl-ass-sick characters are fleshed out, the monsters are menacing, and it had a genuinely intriguing mystery element. Plus, it had a surprising dark tone. I mean…
And it had monsters! By Cthulhu, did it have monsters!
Its backgrounds were simply gore-gous! I’d proudly hang any of these in my tomb!
Beast of all, the show was clearly made for us fright freaks. Nearly every episode is loaded with references to the best genre media has to offer. From Twin Peaks..
…to Phantom of the Paradise…
…to an entire episode paying homage to War of the Gargantuas. They even include the song from the movie!
In ho-nor of this underrated cartoon, we’ve provided our absolute favorite episode! It’s one big tribute to the greatness of Vincent Price, with plenty o’ nods to the Merchant of Menace!
Happy Splatterday, Kinky Ho-mies! 🙂 xoxo
