Growing up, Yahtzee was one of my favorite games to play. I loved it so much, but I always thought there should be a Scooby-Doo Yahtzee.

I just have to say that I am speechless when it comes to this new artwork for Scooby Addicts! It has exceeded my expectations a million times!
My previous logos were pretty simple. I had created them myself in 2007 when I started my website and I'm not an artist, so I just did what I thought would work. I wouldn't say they were horrible, but they weren't anything special. Just black and white images of the gang silhouettes.
When I first contacted Will Davenport to do some new artwork, I sent him the following ideas:
"I was thinking a full body picture of me wearing the ScoobyAddicts shirt and holding the stuffed Scooby"
"I'm wondering if there is something cool that can be done with my ScoobyAddicts logo. I have attached the 2 logos that I have used. Is there something cool you can do to make it look better?"
He literally had nothing to work with, especially where the logos were concerned. I had a slight idea of what I wanted for cartoon me, but even that was not a clear vision in my head. Surprisingly, he went with what I told him and he sent me some rough sketches.
Then I looked at cartoon me, mostly focusing on the Scooby in my hand because I don't usually like pictures of me, though seeing myself in cartoon form was extremely cool! That Scooby is beyond adorable! He's the Scooby I take all my pics with, only more life-like. His cuteness had me smiling from ear to ear. My expectations have already been long surpassed and these were just the rough sketches.
I had asked Will to change the cheeks on cartoon me to make them not stand out as much and I chose the Mystery Machine type writing for the logo as I thought it looked more fun. Will also thought that having the entire gang in the logo was overcrowded, and I agreed, so we went with just me and Scooby.
The change of the shirt really made a huge difference. It screams Scooby-Doo now! And the shirt turned out better than I thought it would be. I just had 1 more change.
The black and white logos are amazing! The flowers add so much character to them. And I still can't believe I'm in the logo!
Here is a closer look at me and Scooby. I love us both! Still, Scooby is just too adorable!! I love that I am a cartoon character and in the Scooby style.
Will did an awesome job with the logos and cartoon me. He more than exceeded my expectations and he created these images with barely any direction from me. He was so easy to work with and he did all of this in 3 days. I highly recommend Will if you are looking for artwork. You can find him at the following links:

Drawing of Scooby by ScoobyAddict (1999)
As a lot of you know, I post Scooby-Doo Fan Art every Friday on my social media pages. I haven't really asked for fan art in a while, so I've been searching for it on my own. However, I'm doing another call for fan art.
If you have an original piece of Scooby-Doo related fan art that you want to have featured on my social media pages, please send it to me and I will post it on a Friday! I do try to keep everything PG just to make it friendly for everyone, so if you send me something that may be more explicit, I may opt not to post it.
You can find me at the following social media pages:
Please note that I always give the artist credit, though I am not always able to tag people in my posts due to the way the social media platforms, mainly Facebook, work. If you want me to try to tag you in the posts, please send me your social media handle for each platform and a link to your website or fan art site.
Scooby fans really enjoy fan art, so if you have something to share, please send it to me so I can share it! I look forward to seeing some great pieces of art!

My Review of Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”
********* Contains Spoilers *********
I love anything medieval and especially if it has dragons, so I was super excited when this movie was announced! I enjoyed the movie and I think it is one of the better Scooby movies that has been released in a while.
The nod to The Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet" (and also the "Gremlin on a Plane" episode from Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!) at the beginning of the movie had me thinking that things weren't going to be what they seem with this movie.
I do think it was predictable. Some of the scenes they showed leading up to the gang time traveling led me to believe that they weren't really time traveling. There also wasn't really a mystery. We know Morgan La Fey wanted the throne and that she would stop at nothing to get it. It felt more like the gang was in a dream while I was watching it.
The gang traveled to Norville Der Morgana, where Shaggy's ancestors were from, though we never got to meet any of Shaggy's family members. I would have thought that he had to have at least 1 relative in the town. It was kind of a missed opportunity.
Shaggy screaming like a girl was a really funny and an unexpected moment. I had to rewind that a couple times to watch it again and I laughed every time.
I really liked the flashbacks to the other Scooby series and movies when they were going back in time. The only thing I would have changed with that is I would have put them all in the correct order from newest to oldest to really signify them going back in time. While the movie is mostly kid friendly, I thought it was odd that they essentially drugged the gang and kidnapped them to make them believe they were going back in time.
It was nice to see Daphne take on all the male knights and take them all down. She was strong and fearless and it's nice to see her like that. It was funny when King Arthur called Daphne a non-man. In that time, women couldn't do anything that men could do, so for them to see a woman fighting would have been unheard of.
Velma used her brains to figure everything out, though there were times in the movie that I thought she was a bit naïve about what was going on. Fred got to come up with an anti-trap trap to get past Morgan La Fey's traps that she set. Shaggy and Scooby got to eat a lot of food in the movie along with King Arthur who also liked food.
Thundarr the Barbarian guest stars in the movie. He helps the gang get through the traps and rescue Shaggy. Thundarr The Barbarian was produced by Ruby-Spears Productions from 1980 to 1983.

We have been hearing that a Scooby-Doo/Courage the Cowardly Dog crossover movie is coming in 2021, through no date has been determined. I'm not even sure if this has been confirmed by WB, so we will have to see what the future holds with this one.
