    I wasn't really focused on the technology shown in the series as much as the story and characters. It's kind of hard to make a futuristic series where the technology doesn't look silly at some point anyway.

    Teen titans, GT might be overhated but I can't deny TT was a little better.

    At the time in its heyday, I never gave myself a chance to watch TT until I'd seen a few repeats on Boom (which then I didn't watch much either). For me the scale is tipped in the favor of DBGT.

    ^The original show's legacy is fine. A comedy spin-off doesn't erase any prior works from existence.

    I vote for Teen Titans.

    I always felt like since "Teen Titans Go" featured the same voice cast, it claimed direct lineage from the beloved original Teen Titans. Like "These are the continuing adventures of your favorite characters - congrats, they've now been reduced to jokes!" Kind of like: After "Justice League" concluded, instead of getting "Justice League Unlimited" we got "The Justice League Comedy Hour!"

    At least most of the Scooby Doo cast knew to stay the heck away from filth like "A Pup Named Scooby Doo"...

    You monster. And most of the old cast did do voices in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, regardless (Casey Kasem and Don Messick reprised Shaggy and Scooby respectively, and Frank Welker voiced one of Fred's relatives. I think Hanna-Barbera just chose kid actors for the three characters who had the most "realistic" teen/adult voices in all of the other shows).

    I'm not really sure voice-actor reprisals automatically mean lineage. Teen Titans Go! does make references to the original series, but it's mostly its own beast. It's best to think of it as the equivalent to those super-deformed comedy spin-offs you see for some anime.

    A Pup Named Scooby-Doo was far from filth. It was hilarious. A great addition to the Scooby-Doo franchise. So, I don't know what you're talking about.

    Hey I liked A Pup Named Scooby Doo too. It was fun, funny and a nice take on the Scooby Doo formula. I'm not sure how it could be considered filth. There were a lot of take an established series and make a new one with the characters as kids during the 90's, but I'd say that A Pup Named Scooby Doo was one of the better ones, if not the best one. I'd take it over Tom and Jerry Kids and that Flintstones series where they were kids.

    Anyway, I'll vote for Teen Titans. It was a good show and while I don't care for TTG, that doesn't change the quality or legacy of the original series. Plus, I've never seen GT.

    I don't know it was "popular" per se, but I remember enjoying A Pup Named Scooby Doo as a kid. If nothing else I really liked the monster designs.

    Still, it's not like I have any huge desire to revisit it or anything. And it was part of that weird trend where they tried to make "kid" versions of everything (Flintstones Kids, Tom & Jerry Kids, etc.). Also, it loses points for being animated by that godawful Glen Kennedy.

    Anyway, seems we've gotten way off topic.
