1. Scooby does his best vampire werewolf impression for Shaggy.

2. Scooby jumps in Shaggy’s arms, and his black nose disappears.

3. Cut to wide shot. We learn that 4 more characters should have been visible in the last closeup, but weren’t. Because logic.

4. Cut to closeup on these two. Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy have disappeared.

5. Cut to Scooby doing his interpretive dance routine. Everyone else has vanished completely.

This is it. The 2,000th SDM post.

We’ve come so far over 2 years, all thanks to your incredible support. 

Purely through reblogging and sharing the blog with friends, you’ve grown SDM from “a silly project I started to entertain my family” all the way into this amazing, crazy little community.

This 2,000th post ought to be special. Something deserving of memorializing the tremendous occasion… but what?

I looked far and wide, attempting to find something worthy. 

Possibly a continuity error that rivals any others? 

Maybe a mistake so egregious, it can’t be ignored?

Then, finally… I found it.

It’s nothing special – just the simplest of frames from a dancing animation. I checked that particular half-second of movie on a whim, just in case it had something good.

And, in that moment, I knew it was right.

Because whenever I look at Scooby’s proportions and posture, I can’t stop laughing.

I’m laughing as I type this, even now. 

And, really, isn’t that what ScoobyDooMistakes is all about? Finding unintentionally-hilarious things, and shedding new light on them?

I’d write more, but my smiling muscles hurt. See y’all next time.

“Oh, bugger.”

Ted the Animator: “Eh?”

Carl the Animator: “I just spilled my coffee on Scrappy’s character sheet. Like, all over his neck.”

Ted the Animator: “You’re a national hero, Carl.”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah, but what a waste of a perfectly good latte.”

Ted the Animator: “It died in service of its country, ridding us of a great menace.”

Carl the Animator: “Unfortunately, we’re still gonna have to draw him more in this movie, y’know.”

Ted the Animator: “A man can dream, can’t he?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, ok, uh, let’s think, here… I already sent off the last couple days of footage, so we can’t look back at what we drew before.”

Ted the Animator: “Hrm.”

Carl the Animator:You pay attention to things, what do you remember of him?”

Ted the Animator: “In all honesty, every single detail regarding Scrappy-Doo is gone from my memory, except… ‘blue-ish collar,’ and… ‘weird head.’”

Carl the Animator: “Huh.”

Ted the Animator: “It’s like my brain has an anti-Scrappy self-defense mechanism.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s understandable, really.”

Ted the Animator: “So, where do we go from here?”

Carl the Animator: “Well… uh… let’s just draw it a buncha different ways!”

Ted the Animator: “…shouldn’t we at least try for some consistency?”

Carl the Animator: “Maybe, but if we always do it one way that’s wrong, it’s 100% wrong, but if we try it different ways and get it right once, it’s at least a percentage right.”

Ted the Animator: “That sounds simultaneously completely ridiculous and strangely logical.”

Carl the Animator: “Sometimes, the straightest path is through the mud.”

Ted the Animator: “Let’s at least do one with gold chain and blue diamond, that seems sensible.”

Carl the Animator: “Sensible is boring. Could it be, like… on fire?”

Ted the Animator: “…no, because I get the sense we’d remember if his collar was on fire at all times.”

Carl the Animator: “Ooh, ooh, I know! And this next one can have, uh… a black chain, and… and… and just a big hole where the diamond is!”

Ted the Animator: “…there’s absolutely no way that’s what it usually looks like.”

Carl the Animator: “…eh.”

Ted the Animator: “Isn’t it our job to be accurate? Draw things the right way?”

Carl the Animator: “Not with Scrappy, it ain’t.”

Ted the Animator: “…fair enough.”
