Bet ya wishin’ you were nicer to Scrappy now.

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #50

FINAL ISSUE

DC Comics (November, 2019, the final part of the digital trade “It’s Scooby Time” from comiXology)

“Crisis Of Infinite Scoobys”

WRITER: Sholly Fisch

ARTIST: Scott Jeralds

COLORIST: Silvana Brys

LETTERER: Saida Temofonte

EDITOR: Kristy Quinn

It’s the anniversary of the first time the Dynamic Duo teamed up with Scooby-Doo and friends, so to celebrate Bat-Mite brings along Scooby-Mite, who brings in Scooby and friends from across the different versions over the years (plus a brief appearance of different Batmen). Chaos of course follows but eventually Batman manages to talk Scooby-Mite into sending everyone back to their realites after a brief team-up against a giant Scrappy.

What they got right: As a final issue it makes sense to start with Batman and Robin, seeing as they in a way represent both the Hanna-Barbera and DC Universe crossovers thanks to both Superfriends and The Scooby-Doo Movies. It’s a nice tribute to the different incarnations of the Scooby-Doo franchise including A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, 13 Ghosts, Get A Clue, Mystery Incorporated, Scooby Apocalypse, and even the live-action and animated direct-to-video movies among other versions. What this series lacks in mystery solving it made up for in a love of these characters across the history of Scooby, Hanna-Barbera, and DC Comics. You almost have to feel sorry for Mr. Camera being forced to watch all this and being so confused he begs to just be brought to prison already.

What they got wrong: You just had to get in one last “we only fight evil realtors” line in there, right? Fred’s obsession with removing masks? Attacking Scrappy-Doo? (Two things I would love to write for DC: Superman having adventures with younger Jon and a Scrappy-Doo series that redeems the character.) These are things I won’t miss about this series. Also, when did Scooby-Doo encounter a Scooby-Mite? Even Teen Titans allowed us to see the introduction of Robin-Mite.

What I think overall: It’s a nice tribute to the Scooby-Doo franchise and a good conclusion to the series.
