“Y’know, we could save some time by using the main background people for the audience cutaway.”

Ted the Animator: “Meaning?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, right after the shot of the creepy audience…”

Carl the Animator: “…the next frame, it can cut straight back to her, but with most of the same people!”

Carl the Animator: “Boom. Minimal re-drawing.”

Ted the Animator: “Yyyyeah, I don’t think that can stay in the movie.”

Carl the Animator: “What? Why?”

Ted the Animator: “As much as I admire efficiency… I’m not so big on teleportation.”

Carl the Animator: “There’s not that much.”

Ted the Animator: “Well, there’s Weird-Charlie-Brown-Shirt-Butt-Chin-Guy moving from back-left to front-right… Tan-Uniform-Guy stealing Creepy Grandpa’s drink… and the wall in front of them radically changing, all in a twelfth of a second.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, sure, but think of the valuable stuff we could work on with that saved time.”

Ted the Animator: “Like?”

Carl the Animator: “Like getting enchiladas.”

Ted the Animator: “…ok, looks like it’s staying in the movie.”

...I just noticed something.

When encountering this rake, Shaggy gets hit by it… 

…but Scooby doesn’t. At all. Doesn’t even hit Shaggy’s back.

But, he didn’t want Shaggy to feel left out, so he pretended like he collided with it to make him feel better.

What a true pal.

We all could use someone to fake a rake collision with us.

Ok, so, Shag, Scoob, and the Undertaker are all believed to be dead,

–after careening down a waterfall… stuck inside a sandwich truck… which exploded at the bottom in a huge fireball.

The rest of the gang’s reaction to seeing this is, as you would expect…

a vague mix of mild concern and general apathy.

Daphne at least seems somewhat worried, but Velma?

Velma has the expression you get when Starbucks tells you “Sorry, we’re all out of caramel syrup.”

“Oh. Hm. Too bad. Sugar-free vanilla, please.”

It’s truly a tragic–…


…is that one of the biggest wrestling legends of all time… animated carrying a guy and talking dog… up the side of a waterfall…

…using a lasso made of hot dogs?

…yes. Yes it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you: why did this movie not win Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars?
