    I didn't see one, so I figured it was time to put one up.

    In case you didn't see the first-released design of Scooby from the press release earlier in the year, here it is.

    Now there's a new look at Scooby and the gang over here. Awful. they look more a boiled-down attempt at caricatures of the original designs than anything and it doesn't come off as good.

    i'm not sure what to make of the show at this point, but this new look doesn't fill me with too much confidence.

    I'm not too thrilled about the look, but I'm willing to watch an episode or two to see if it's entertaining.

    Someone I follow actually stated that the designs look like the lovechild of Seth MacFarlane and Tim Buckley. To be honest, Daphne looks exactly like something out of Family Guy. No wait, even Family Guy drew her better...

    I'll reserve judgement for when more info comes out, but for now, I'm not exactly psyched.

    Gracious, the gang looks deranged. Look at their eyes! Other than that, I don't have much to say. Maybe when they release some footage, I'll be able to judge this show better.

    I'll enjoy Be Cool Scooby-Doo! next to Wabbit on the fun enjoyable mystery-solving episodes:D.Both Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby's redesigns look awful though looking Seth MacFarlane-based even their eyes though, yikes.The new villains they'll bring out will be sweet and I hope they'll have no annoying horrible scumbag parents though.I hope Scooby will have another great new dog girlfriend after Nova.

    I get a Butch Hartman-vibe from Scooby's design alone.It feels like I've seen that art-style before I just can't put my finger on it.

    So, we've gone from Young Justice to Teen Titans Go, and from Mystery Inc to....this.

    I'm putting down $50 that CN greenlights a 2D, 11-minute comedy version of Green Lantern before the end of the year.

    It looks like an 11-year-old's attempt at drawing the characters Seth MacFarlane style. Blech.

    Well... people wanted Scooby Doo to return to its roots. If people start complaining about the animation and art style like they do for The Tom and Jerry Show, I don't know if WB Animation can win.

    Yyyyyyyeah, those designs look preeetty bad. They look like they were unearthed from the deepest and darkest trenches of Brickleberry. I used to love Scooby Doo and its numerous incarnations growing up, but this is deplorable.

    Unless the show's writing magically ends up being decent, count me out.

    Yeah, I'm not liking the new designs either. They seem more like caricatures of the characters rather than the characters themselves, especially with the big eyes almost everyone has. I'll probably give the show a shot at least, but the designs aren't giving the show a good first impression for me.

    The only non-original series I'm looking forward to is pretty much Wabbit.

    OK, those designs will definitely take some getting used to, but there are some things about the description that intrigue me: the "playful tone" the show will supposedly take could be fun, as long as it doesn't go the Teen Titans GO! route and make the characters mean-spirited jerkbags and kill, abuse and mutiliate them with the writers figuring it doesn't matter what they do since they can just hit the Reset button and restore everything back to normal by the next episode; the idea of the Mystery Machine getting upgraded with fancy gadgets sounds cool (this was also employed in the apparently infamous Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!) and I appreciate how there will be no shipping among the main characters this time around. I personally don't care about the relationships one way or the other, but based on the talkbacks for Scooby-Doo: Mystery, Inc. and elsewhere on the interwebz, ships among the gang is a very polarizing subject, so it's probably for the best that the Scooby gang remain just friends.

    I may catch the first couple of episodes of this and see what I think; whether I watch this full time depends on my initial impressions.

    Oh my gosh. I am not exaggerating when I say that may be the worst poster for a cartoon I have seen in a year. It looks very ugly.

    C'mon, CN. Why do you do this? This is definitely a show I don't plan to watch.
