Should They Bring Scrappy Back?

Scrappy is either loved or hated! How do you feel about him and do you think they should bring him back?

In this episode of the Scooby Panel, we talk about different ways to bring Scrappy back! Just like how people feel about Scrappy, you are either going to hate this episode or find it hilarious! We put Scrappy in some interesting scenarios, that you may or may not like, to discuss if we think he should be brought back or not. You might be surprised by some of our answers and by some of the scenarios! There are even visuals for each scenario! 

FUN FACT: When we recorded this episode, we managed to clock our longest recording 6 hours 50 minutes 54 seconds! That is almost 7 hours of us talking about Scooby, Scrappy and a bunch of crazy stuff like how long would we live if there was a zombie apocalypse! The conversations turn really interesting lol! 

Do you think they should bring Scrappy back? How would you like to see them bring him back?

Enjoy the episode!

Interview with John Sazaklis, NY Times Bestselling Children's Book Author

We had the pleasure of speaking to John Sazaklis, NY Times bestselling children's book author. He's actually way more than that! He has created toys and illustrated books as well! Plus, this guy can cosplay with the best of them! He really gets into character! 

John came prepared with his own visuals, which was super cool. We got to take a trip down John's memory lane and learn about his career, family and friends along the way. 

John has written some great Scooby-Doo stories, including a Choose Your Own book. He has also taken classic villains and put them into new and fun stories for you to enjoy. 

I purchased John's Scooby-Doo books directly from him in 2021 and he signed each one of them with a different message. You can find John's books at Amazon, Target, Walmart, bookstores or you can buy them directly from him by going to

Be sure to follow him on Instagram to stay up to date on his newest projects! 

Thank you again, John, for your time and good luck with all of your upcoming and future projects! We can't wait to talk to you again! 

I hope you enjoy the interview...

A Scooby Panel Christmas

Christmas is in 2 days! I can't even believe it's December, let alone Christmas. 2022 went so fast! 

We celebrated Christmas on the Scooby Panel and it was so much fun! We talked about our Scooby-Doo Christmas traditions, Our favorite Scooby gift that we received for Christmas, Scooby items that don't exist that we would love to see made and we tell some fun holiday involves a sausage! 😂

I'm honored that I have a great group of friends that love talking about Scooby as much as I do. The total recording was 5 hours 45 minutes 57 seconds, the panel was only 48 minutes of that total time and surprisingly this wasn't our longest recording! We have some amazing conversations before and after the panels! 

Do you have any holiday traditions or a favorite Scooby gift that you received?

Bravo Dooby Doo

I hadn't watched Bravo Dooby Doo in so long and then decided to do a Scooby Panel on the special and I forgot how much I loved that episode! It was funny, had some great lines in it and it had all the elements of a great Scooby-Doo episode! 

To prep for the panel, not only did I watch the episode at least 10 times, but I also did a little research and came across a great blog post written by Van Partible, who created Johnny Bravo. It's a must-read if you want some behind-the-scenes details about the special. 

We had a great time talking about Bravo Dooby Doo. Devin even did his best impression of Scooby saying "Aunt Jebedisssa!" Which I must say is pretty good! You can check that out on YouTube!

This isn't a review of the episode, but it is a discussion about it. We don't rate the episode or any of that, though we all liked it very much! 

I hope you enjoy this one!

A Scooby-Doo Thanksgiving

In the 53 years that Scooby-Doo has been around, there hasn't been an official Thanksgiving episode, movie or special. Even Snoopy has A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, but there is nothing for Scoob!

In this episode of the Scooby Panel, we discuss the episodes and movie that are the closest they have come to Thanksgiving within the Scooby-Doo franchise. We talk about the Thanksgiving merchandise and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade floats and Scooby balloon.  

It was a lot of fun doing the research for this episode. I learned a lot of amazing information about Scooby-Doo, especially the Macy's balloon! 

I hope you enjoy the episode and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Shaggy Rogers Is More Than Just Bait!

When you think about Shaggy, what comes to mind?

For me, it's his love of food, green shirt and his amazing friendship with his pal, Scooby-Doo. I think of him running from monsters and being the bait for Fred's traps. Shaggy is way more complex than I think people realize. 

In this episode of the Scooby Panel, we discuss Shaggy. We take a look at his family, his love interests, his voice actors and more. We also shed a little more light on why Casey Kasem refused to voice Shaggy for the Burger King Commercial. 

It was a lot of fun learning about Shaggy as a character and what he brings to the gang! I also updated Shaggy's family members on my website!

I added a table of contents to this one, which I hope to eventually add to all of them.  

Thanks to Wendy, Cameron, Joel and Danii for joining me for this one! 

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Paranormal Scooby-Doo and Our Paranormal Experiences

There are so many paranormal elements in Scooby-Doo, from real ghosts and monsters to floating candles and sandwiches and a lot of other things that have happened over the past 50+ years in the franchise. 

On today's episode, we discuss some of the paranormal elements in Scooby-Doo and then we talk about our own paranormal experiences, some of which gave me chills. Like Justin said in the episode, I didn't expect to hear the crazy stories that everyone had. What makes it even better...there is a visual for one of Devin's experiences and you may even hear the words of a ghost from Justin's experience. 

Paranormal Experience While Editing This Panel

While I was editing the panel, the part where I talked about my experiences in my house, all of a sudden my dog, who was fast asleep on the couch, ran out of the room as fast as he could and then the mute icon started flashing on my TV screen. It just kept flashing on and off. No one was near the remote and the only way to mute and unmute the TV is to hold down the volume button. I happened to be editing the video in the same room I had another experience in, so maybe it was the same ghost letting me know they were here! It freaked me out!

Have You Had Any Paranormal Experiences?

Join me, Alexa, Devin, Justin and Joel as we discuss paranormal elements in Scooby-Doo and our own paranormal experiences, and let us know if you have ever had any paranormal experiences of your own in the comments of the blog post, video or on any of our social media accounts.
