It seems to be working pretty well for them. Except for all the collateral damage.

"Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated", a really rather good new version of the long running series... But sadly totally buried and un-advertised, so it lacks the same fandom as "Friendship is Magic" or "Gravity Falls". I particularly liked the episode with Harlan Ellison being attacked by a tentacle monster.



If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you might recall that I am a dude with some strong opinions about the Scooby Doo franchise, and to be honest, the main reason for that is Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. This week, the second half of the first season finally made it to DVD with a fourteen-episode set called Crystal Cove Curse, two discs worth of pretty compelling reasons why it's one of the best animated series in recent memory. Seriously. What it really comes down to is character. Mystery Inc. is one of the first times in the 43-year history of the franchise that anyone's been allowed to develop the gang as characters, and it's something that changes the entire tone of the show.



Up here if the last two episodes of season two ever aired, I have never managed to see them.

The Ellison episode just about edges out the surreal dream episode featuring most of Hanna-Barbera's cast of kooky detectives from the 70s. But only just.

I read this as 'Candle Cove' and was very confused.
