|Is he really defending Scrappy Doo?|
But, there is one character who is completely misunderstood. It's not Shaggy and his pot smoking ways and it's not Daphne and her rich upbringing. It's not even Fred and his stupid ascot or Velma...well I can't say anything bad about Velma, I have a weakness for nerdy chicks with glasses and it certainly wasn't Scooby, everyone loves Scooby. The character that gets the injustice is....

|See? They're happy!|
Why is this courageous pup so hated and villainized? If you watch the episodes that Scrappy was in you will see him saving Scooby and Shaggy from the monster that snuck up on them while they were on their inevitable search for the rest of the gang. While Scooby and Shaggy were busy getting scared and cowering in the corner, Scrappy would do his trademarked call, "Ta Daaa Ta Daa, Charge!" followed up with his victory yell "Puppy Power!" and charge in to save the day. If anything Scrappy was a hero.
Granted, he was not the brightest bulb on the tree and his courage and willingness to fight the monsters overruled rational thoughts, but that is no reason to scrutinize Scrappy Doo. The fact remains that when the other members of the gang departed and left Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy to fend for themselves, Scrappy was the brains of the outfit, something he probably picked up from Velma....did I mention I have a weakness for nerdy girls with glasses?
|Oh Velma....you're such a tease.|
|Come on...what do you think they did in there? That 70's Show anyone?|
Despite his loyal following, Scrappy has not appeared in any Scooby Doo show since 1988 with three exceptions:
- The 1st live action Scooby Doo movie where is was unjustly portrayed as the evil villain at the end of the movie. They showed a scene where he peed on some of the gang, well they probably had it coming.
- Scooby Doo and the Goblin King where the possessed Mystery Machine runs over hundreds of stuffed Scrappy Dolls at a carnival (again kowtowing to the haters)
- Scooby Doo! Mystery, Inc. where in one episode, once again, Scrappy is depicted as the evil one. There is a statue of Scrappy and all of the other defeated "villains" and Daphne (who really did like him) reminisces for a second until Fred, the ascot wearing pussy, reminds her that they were not supposed to speak of him ever again.
|Oh Scrappy you lucky dog you....what are you looking at?|
|Scrappy definitely was not neutered...|
