Scooby Doo and wickedly hilarious wikipedia commentary
Growing up Scooby Doo was my favourite cartoon, without a doubt. I like to attribute my fascination with mystery and adventure, which started at a very young age, to shows like Scooby Doo because they gave my imagination an opportunity to wonder. I would sit on my bed everyday and envisage all the mysterious adventures my invisible best friends and I were going to embark on.
Anyways, I was thinking about Scooby Doo today so I decided to find some information on the internet about the franchise: When the series originally started, what was the first episode that aired, the names of the actors who voiced the original characters etc etc I visited Wikipeida of course and stumbled upon some LOL-worthy comments. They are wickedly hilarious so read at your own risk.
"During many of the episodes, Fred and Daphne spend time off screen while Velma, Shaggy and Scooby usually end up encountering the villain. This has led to assumptions that Fred and Daphne are off having sex instead of finding clues."
Fred and Daphne? shacking up? how scandalous. Wait! there's more. This one is about Velma.
"Velma has been called a lesbian "icon", although the Scooby-Doo series and direct-to-video films depict her as presumably heterosexual."
Oh man, I am literally rolling on the floor and laughing my ass off. Do you think I'm done? oh no, there's more. This one, debatably the most hilarious of them all, is about Shaggy and Scooby.
"Both Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are readily bribed with Scooby Snacks due to their nearly insatiable appetites, and have tendencies toward goofing off and cowardice. They justify their constant hunger by saying, "Being in a constant state of terror makes us constantly hungry!". However some believe the pair's constant eating is a subtle reference to munchies, a result of marijuana consumption"
Scooby? a pot head? This is too much. Laughter is shredding my lungs apart. I can't even go on anymore. I have to stop.
