Ooh, yes! Freddy’s got the bad guy frozen with a magnet!
Now, the gang can go grab the final Scooby Snacks and escape this virtual world.
Go get them, Scoob!
I mean, the movie reiterated mere minutes ago that – to the digital people – magnets cause:
2. Complete helplessness
3. Total lack of awareness
4. Temporary memory loss
So, you’re perfectly safe, Scooby!
…oh, no, silly, no need to be sneaky. Just run up there and grab them, this is everyone’s big chance!
…no, seriously, the bad guy can’t do anything. At all. You know he can’t see you, or react to your movement. You, or any of the rest of the gang, can walk straight past him.
…look, Scoob, just go up there already, please? There’s no reason to risk wasting time, all you need to do is go forward. Why isn’t anyone else trying to–
…oh, come on, now.
Y’know, actually, you could just walk around the side of the room to get to the Scooby Snacks, if you wanted. Or maybe even run, seeing as your lives are in danger and all.
Honestly, this could have been over in 4 seconds, had you not decided to slink around the random gray balls at Freddy’s feet.
…or if the rest of the gang had just walked over there themselves during this copious amount of time. C’mon, lend the dog a hand! Your survival kinda depends on it.
…oh, goody, and now the gray balls randomly turn into yellow/green balls, because logic.
…oh, double goody, Fred also decided to get in unnecessarily close to the bad guy, and not watch where he’s going!
Gee, I wonder what’s going to happen.
OH NOES WHOEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED IT
HE TRIPPED OVER BOTH THE BALL AND SCOOBY
IF ONLY THERE HAD BEEN ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE DIFFERENTLY TO PREVENT THIS SITUATION
Look… I’m not expecting a masterpiece of a script from Scooby-Doo, here, but when your heroes need to have a auto-win situation foiled by an intricately-choreographed series of bad decisions… maaaybe you ought to re-write the scene.
WOW HEY HAVEN’T VOICED STUFF IN A CRAZY LONG TIME AMIRITE? Thought I’d get back into it and voice a comic from the amazing @lightsintheskye ‘s Link and the Links AU. I’ve always wanted to try voicing a Toon Link. （*´▽｀*）
