Scooby Doo was one of my favorite cartoons growing up! Something about talking dogs always attracted me as a kid. I would sit down with my huge bowl of cereal, completely ignoring my homework or any other important responsibility just to get my fix. My dad was a driver and usually came home late, and he would always catch me asleep in front of the television with with the empty cereal bowl in my lap.
Although the show was super predicable, it was still very entertaining and fun to watch. Besides the standards of a 9 year old are no where near that of an adult today.
The Funny thing is watching the show today gives you a fresh perspective into what how good the writers actually were. They found a way to communicate actual issues, in a funny child like manner. Shaggy was actually a pot head, yet I never noticed till recently. When you really think of it, it was completely obvious… He always had the munchies, he always seemed a step behind the rest of the gang, and he would have full blown conversations with Scoody. If those are symptoms of a pothead to you then you may not know many potheads to begin with.
This week’s cartoon song is none other than the catchy Scooby Doo theme song, Click on the YouTube link to be transported to those after school days when you would sit in front of the television waiting for the gang to solve their next mystery.
