Gabe Nye and I have spent more hours hunting for horror DVDs/memorabilia together than two grown ass men should admit. Many a night spent with a bottle of whiskey and a stack of movies full of puppets, bloody boobs, and knife wielding maniacs. We have suffered through some the most atrocious shit you can imagine, and discovered some of the best. His science is tight most of the time, unless he is lying to me about Bill Nye being better than Beakman.
Lets be honest, most attempts to cash in on our childhood are pretty mediocre. Don't get me wrong, I like Michael Bay's Transformers movies a lot, and JJ Abrams' Star Trek is awesome, but they never really live up to the memories of my childhood. I'd wager a lot of you feel the same way. Is there anything that truly lives up to, or even surpasses what we hold in our hearts as perfect? I submit that Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated not only matches the quality of the classic cartoon, but far surpasses it.
Seriously, I'm just scratching the surface here. I could write a whole series of articles about this show. If you ever loved Scooby Doo, watch this new one. Even if you hate the old Scooby, watch this new one. My brother (Jacob Von Klingele, look for his article on horror toys for kids in this series, it's awesome) hates old Scooby Doo, but I talked him into watching Mystery Incorporated and he loved it. Bottom line, it's a great cartoon for kids, and adults will find a ton of stuff to love too, maybe even more. Oh yeah, the first season is out on DVD, and season two ended not too long ago, so I'm sure it'll be out soon.
