I couldn’t have said it better myself. Scrappy gets too much blame when the problem was how these seasons were written. Season one was basically a continuation of The Scooby-Doo Show and some of my favorite mysteries came from these two seasons. It was when the mysteries disappeared that the show went downhill. As I’ve mentioned in the comic review, the franchise is built on being a mystery show for kids that kids could try to solve along with the gang. Scrappy didn’t lead to this being dropped, Hanna-Barbera or ABC did. Sadly the first season of Daphne’s return still had the shorter segments and the mysteries weren’t as good until later on…and then it was all ruined by The 13 Ghosts Of Scooby-Doo, which sent the franchise into TV movie territory until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo revitalized it and the direct-to-video movies got it back on course.
