    If you didn't like the show to begin with, then why are you concerned about the show? What made him annoying?

    You hate it when shows maintain an an intelligent and clearly spoken vocabulary? What a unique opinion.

    Nah, Scrappy just got a bit of a one track mind at times. He always meant well. (At least, in his original portrayals)

    Where is written that only Fred, Velma, and Daphne should be brave? As for the animators who made him, sadly Iwao Takamoto is dead and thus is unable to work on him more.

    I don't understand why the hate of Scrappy Doo either. I mean, nobody has to like him, but this whole hatefulness of Scrappy Doo is over the top. When my friend and I saw the live action version of Scooby Doo, I was shock how bad they treated Scrappy Doo as the main villain. I think Scrappy Doo deserves another chance, but ease up his behavior a little bit. I don't know, he doesn't bother me.

    I never had a problem with Scrappy. He is far from my favorite character, but I hardly hate him. When I first saw the live action movie I thought making Scrappy the villain was a random choice.

    Isn't that more a likeness to the original gang? Daphne, Fred and Velma always sent Shaggy and Scooby as bait or to do all the dirty work against their will while they worked safely in the background (or something even less related as some fans theorised with Fred and Daphne :p). It was only really later revivals where they felt like equals and had an active role instead of treating Shaggy and Scooby as their lackeys.

    Scrappy at least naively thought Scooby was brave and was willing to go out there and take things head on as well (even if he didn't really get a lot of times to actually do it). If Scrappy had been anything like his title sequence self who actually successfully beat up and stopped the bad guys instead of always being dragged away by Scooby, he would have had way more to stand on than the original gang.

    This is the mother of all thread bumps. Has anyone read the issues of Scooby Apocalypse where Scrappy appears? How are they?

    I'm pleased to announce that Scrappy, bigger and buffer than ever, is a hero in the backup feature of Scooby Apocalypse. They're doing a Peabody & Sherman riff with him in that he has a young boy as his sidekick.

    Is the boy Flim Flam? If not, it'd be a wasted opportunity.

    Insofar as I know, no. Haven't been reading the series, save for the monthly solicitation notices.

    Well, I suppose it's infinitely better than nothing. *Tips hat to DC*.

    Solicitations for July show that Scrappy is in for a showdown with Scooby, and in the context of the current comics, they are not related, but both genetically mutated. Scrappy hates Scooby because Scooby has made it to the outside world first, or something.

    Scooby Doo fans didn't like Scrappy and they thought he was annoying and irrelevant. So they forgotten that he exist ever since.
