My Homage to Scooby-Doo

Here are a few drawings from my sketch book that are my homage to Scooby-Doo.  The original episodes from Hanna-Barbera Productions, “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You” and “The Scooby-Doo Show” were big influences on my interest in drawing and monsters.   The Mantis was in an episode called, “The Creepy Creature of Vultures Claw”.  In my memory, it was a particularly spine-chilling episode.  The Mantis is an insectoid type of creature that keeps people away from some gardens.  In the end, it turns out the creature was just the professor in a mask.  He was keeping people away from the oil he had discovered in the gardens.   When I was five, I fell for that person in a mask plot every time.   I was going to try to get away with makings some more drawings and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn’t been for those meddling kids!

    Cool sketch. I do remember that episode as a very scary one. Along with with Owls, Ice Creature, Blue Bull and Witch, those were some frightening half-hours. However, like with Bond villains, Cobra and other costumed criminals, it always seemed so much more beneficial and economical if they just took the money to finance their schemes and instead invested it in a stock portfolio or start up company. Sears could kick Cobra’s butt any day, and some shotgun wielding pot head is more effective at protecting his drug patch then the ghosts of the lost children, right? Of course- the dog talked, so maybe this is all a bit esoteric. What new creature would you like to see those blasted kids unmask?

  2. Nate, it would have been more beneficial and economical if they just invested their money in a stock portfolio. They would have been able to invest in a stock portfolio if it wasn’t for those meddling kids! I’ll have to draw some more Scooby-Doo monsters, some time.
