For years, Scrappy-Doo has been one of the most controversial characters to the Scooby-Doo franchise. I don't understand the hatred towards Scrappy-Doo. When I watched him back when I was young, he seems to be decent. During my high school years in 1997, when I was on one of the school computers to search for Scooby-Doo info, I was surprised at the amount of hatred he received, as indicated by the anti-Scrappy ribbons that they posted on their pages. Let's just say that it's gotten worse to the point where even Warner Bros. became aware of the backlash the character has received and tried to avoid mentioning Scrappy-Doo on the DVDs of the shows, and worse, turned him to the head villain of the first live-action movie. When did Scrappy-phobia start? I'm guessing that the seeds were planted in the early 80s, when Scooby and Scrappy were still on ABC, and the various Scooby shows entered syndication. And for my stance, I'm neutral.
