If there was ever a divisive character in the history of Hanna Barbara animation it is Scrappy Doo. Some love him; others hate him. There are rumors that stars refused to participate in the live action film once they found out Scrappy was going to be in it. That said, ‘Scooby-Doo! and Scrappy-Doo!” was a pretty great show.
The show was a new take on the classic Scooby dynamic and while, yes, Scrappy did tend to have his annoying moments, it still contributed more than a couple classic episodes and monsters. Plus, without the show you can’t understand why Scrappy was so mad at the end of the live action movie.
It is about time that a season based DVD release of this show has emerged. This go around is just the first season, all 16 episodes. As the packaging says this is “over four hours of cartoon fun”. Longtime fans of Scooby-Doo rejoice, longtime haters of Scrappy-Doo roll your eyes, but everyone pick this up and enjoy!
