What were they thinking? In the new movie they added stuff that didn't make any sense as to how it's connected to the show, like how they said the gang was 18 and Flim Flam grew up very fast and Scrappy couldn't have been born then and he obviously was there during the show, they can't deny he wasn't there and they've gotta stop that. As a matter of fact, they made a lot of stuff in recent movies like Frankencreepy that make no sense at all. Someones gotta tell them, that they're making bad decisions and they need to make some sense for a change, and that includes the shows between the 80's and the 90's, they need to learn that the problems back then are all in the past and they can't keep ignoring it, it's just wrong and they need to move on.
(Sigh) Maybe I'm pushing it a little too much. I guess all of this is probably best left for fan spectualtion. Sometimes I pretend to have changed a few things that actually do make sense and that did help. If someone wants to try and make a difference, than go ahead.
They thought to give the 13 Ghosts a proper ending, going out of their way to make it "fit" with everything else that is "cannon" in the franchsie. Giving Flim-flam a 2nd chance even though people have poitned out that he was "more hated" than Scrappy, only difference was he was in the show itself and nothing else...
But they just retcon Scrappy out of the entire thing? Only to have Flim-Flam bring him up and gang themselves never really giving a proper anwswer outside of Velma and Fred looking geniuenly confused by his name?
I knew bring Scrappy back as a character was a stretch... but they just didn't try!
But what can we do? It's not like we could just tell them to stop or start a petition. I mean there may be one already, but we don't know if it's true or not. And besides, we know he still exists even during the movie, they're just too chicken to admit it.
But on the bright side, many episodes with him in it are released on DVD and the shows live on still and it's nice to know there are so many who care about him still. And who knows what will happen. If you want to try and make a difference, I won't stop you.
Andrew, if I hadn't spent much of the day saying things on Twitter, I'd be able to comment. But I'm all talked out. I agree with you, though. This film was supposed to be listening to the fans, but it turned out they were only half listening. They made so many mistakes, you could say it's a bad film. All the hope I had left is maybe all but gone, and it makes me question what they'll do next. Maybe the next film will be great, as was the last film, Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost, but this film was disappointingly lackluster and another time where you watch trailers and clips for a film you think will be great, but then the film itself turns out to be not so great.
It reminds me of X-Men: Apocalypse, when that looked pretty great by trailers, then the whole film, while was okay on first view, ended up pretty awful by comparison of the last two.
Nope, nothing. WB aren't going to listen to us. They're gonna do what they want, when they want. If they were gonna listen to fans, they wouldn't have canceled Be Cool and done a lot of other stuff they could have not done, either, like stop the petty squabbles of Fred and Daphne. After you do Stage Fright, there's not much more you can do with those two, you either put them together or you don't.
This is really messed up. Or maybe I should say, (They're) really messed up. They've gotta stop hiding the truth under a mask of lies and be open to the people, but if you're right, than there's no hope for them anymore. It's sad. So I'm gonna be careful what I buy from now on. I bought a copy and now I can't return it.
I'm not very confident they'll do better with Return to Zombie Island, now they're not even taking the original continuity seriously. They make it look like the shows and movies from the 1900's are from a different timeline than the 2000's. And I don't mean Get a Clue Mystery Incorporated and Be Cool, they're each from different dimensions.
