Believe it or not, this special has one major thing in common with an anime called Slayers Premium. Both movies are saved by an actor named Crispin Freeman. No, really! Follow Evil Frosty and find out how!!

The Haunted Holidays special is a new mini-movie that's included on a compulation DVD called "13 Spooky Tales: Holiday Thrills and Chills". In addition to the new special, it has about a dozen random Scooby episodes from various incarnations that share a Winter Time theme (but I'm only gonna touch on the new one).

Hey, remember back in my Fridging of Velma Dinkley essay when I joked that:
At least Velma was never sexually assaulted or severely beaten in Mystery Incorporated (however, the show was green lit for another season; so I wouldn’t put it past them just yet...)

Well, Velma wasn't sexually assaulted in the latest episode (she's an ugly, un-rapeable troll, remember?). But someone else was. Take a wild guess who.

This particular artist (who seems to be following the "Adventure Time" trend)
was brought to my attention by Comics Alliance. While I don't dig her Daphne,
I like the look the rest of the Scooby Gang is sporting.

Now that Mystery Incorporated has ended it's American TV run, I feel the need to post this essay. I know I've ranted about this subject excessively already. But this write up is my attempt to calmly explain why the way this show went down bothers me so much. I hope you all will take the time to read it and let me know what you think because I'm interested in hearing your opinions on the issue of feminism and what's appropriate in a franchise that's marketed toward children.

After coming off from a wonderful high by a Doctor Who episode,  I read some of the synopsis of upcoming episodes of Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated on Wikipedia and I found my depressed when I read this...

Since there are dozens of different Scooby canons out there, I thought it would be interesting to ask you guys which versions of Shaggy and Velma you believe are most compatible.

I’ll start by listing all the Scooby productions where Shaggy and Velma appeared together in chronological order (I’m doing this from memory, so forgive me if I missed one) :

You know, I've been wondering about the Shaggy/Velma relationship in Mystery Incorporated ever since they announced the new episode a couple days ago. What was the point of putting them together if their ultimate objective was simply to break them apart? Its one thing to create drama and tension for a romantic relationship on TV to "break up the monotony" of a steady relationship, but it another to "demonize" the female character (Velma) by turning her into a control freak who doesn't seem appreciate the person she's with for who he is (thanks to some bad advice from Daphene for the most part) and appears to despise the close knit relationship between a man his dog (Shaggy and Scooby).

And the worst thing of it, Shaggy is such a push over about everything until she throws down the ultimatum of "The Dog or Me". I never got why they used the Shaggy/Scooby friendship for the basis of some weird ass love-triangle between the three, let alone why they'd make Scooby against the idea of Shaggy and Velma dating (or maybe I'm looking at that particular angle from the real world perspective, as I'm sure your pet really doesn't give a damn about who you date, so long as you continue to love and care for it. Maybe that's the angle they were aiming for, but it didn't come off that way for me), it gave me pause on more than one occasion.

Believe it or not, despite the fact that only one episode had Shaggy and the gang on screen together; this show actually had a pretty sweet Shaggy/Velma scene in it.

The episode is called “Almost Ghosts” and you can view it for free on the WB website here. In it, Shaggy meets up with the gang to solve a mystery at a military base. His reunion with Velma is surprisingly sweet and flirty. Don’t believe me? Here are some screen shots:

Note: These images were screen-captured directly from the WB website (hence the giant play button in the middle). I didn’t want to go to the time/trouble of buying or renting the DVD to get clean screen shots because, well, it’s still Shaggy and Scooby Doo Get A Clue. :P

A Pup Named Scooby Doo episode review: The Wrath of Waitro

The last review was so much fun I decided to do another one. Don’t worry; this is a short episode, so it won’t be nearly as image-heavy as the Computer Walks Among Us review. ~_^

As always, feel free to use these images for stuff like icons if you want. Credit isn’t necessary (since I clearly don’t own this series), but it would be greatly appreciated.

On to the review!
