Scooby-Doo is an American children’s animated television show following a group of teenagers and their talking dog, Scooby-Doo, as they solve crimes. The franchise has also launched several TV movies and two live action feature films.
Friends Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Velma and talking dog Scooby-Doo travel across the country in their van called “The Mystery Machine.” Though they are called to places that are said to be haunted by supernatural creatures such as ghosts or monsters, when they finally catch the creatures they are revealed to be ordinary people wearing costumes.
The original Scooby-Doo cartoon, Scooby-Doo, Where are You! was created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and premiered on CBS on September 13, 1969. It ran for two seasons, airing its finale in 1971, though it continued to run on CBS until 1976. Multiple revivals and spin-offs were aired during the ‘80s and ’90s. Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, which focused on Scooby-Doo’s nephew Scrappy-Doo, ran from 1979-1980 and A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, which focused on Scooby-Doo’s younger years ran from 1988-1991. Revivals in the 2000s include What’s New, Scooby-Doo? (2002-2006) and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (2010-2013). A new Scooby-Doo series, Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, is scheduled to premiere on Cartoon Network in 2014.

Scooby-Doo Doors is a gag popularized by Scooby-Doo in which characters, being pursued by another character, will dodge into a room down a hallway, then pop out of another door so their persuer just misses them. The gag became synonymous with the show, and has been often used in popular culture.
Scrappy-Doo is Scoopy-Doo’s nephew who was introduced into the franchise in 1979. Many fans saw him as an extremely irritating character, giving him a large anti-fandom. Scrappy became so infamous that in the 2002 live action film, he was given the role of an antagonistic. TV Tropes uses the term “The Scrappy,” to describe a character that is hated by fans of a given work of fiction. On July 22nd, 2008, College Humor uploaded a video to their official YouTube channel titled “CSI: Scooby Doo,” which features Scooby-Doo killing Scrappy. As of April 2014, the video has gained over 2.1 million views.
I Hate My Job
I Hate My Job is a bait-and-switch copypasta story that opens with the narrator ranting about their disdain for their job, and in the end, revealing themselves to be a fictitious character. In the original example, the narrator is revealed to be Fred from Scooby-Doo.
My job is so fucking unbelievable. I’ll try to sum it up by first telling you about the folks I work with:
First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and has never once considered the needs or wants of anyone but herself. She is as dumb as a box of rocks, and I still find it surprising that she has enough brain power to continue to breathe.
The next chick is completely the opposite. She might even be one of the smartest people on the planet. Her career opportunities are endless, and yet she is here with us. She is a zero on a scale of 1 to 10. I’m not sure she even showers, much less shaves her “womanly” parts. I think she might be a lesbian, because every time we drive by the hardware store, she moans like a cat in heat.
But the jewel of the crowd has got to be the fucking stoner. And this guy is more than just your average pothead. In fact, he is baked before he comes to work, during work, and I’m sure after work. He probably hasn’t been sober anytime in the last ten years, and he’s only 22. He dresses like a beatnik throwback from the 1960’s, and to make things worse, he brings his big fucking dog to work. Every fucking day I have to look at this huge Great Dane walk around half-stoned from the second-hand smoke. Hell, sometimes I even think it’s trying to talk with its constant bellowing. Also, both of them are constantly hungry, requiring multiple stops to McDonalds and Burger King, every single fucking day.
Anyway, I drive these fucktards around in my van and we solve mysteries and shit.
That’s My Fetish
That Is My Fetish is a reaction face meant to show one’s arousal at something others might find weird or disgusting. One popular version of the meme shows a GIF from the 2003 show What’s New, Scooby-Doo?, which shows the casts’ horrified faces before panning over to a grinning Fred, with the caption “That’s My Fetish.”
