    My prediction is that it will feature a cameo by the Taco Bell chihuahua, followed soon by outcries of racial stereotyping.

    [​IMG] If this thread will just be used as a source of derision, I may as well ask the mods to close it. Really, I thought there were a few Scooby fans hanging around here, and noone but DVDToons had mentioned the release's specs yet (and I didn't know about THAT until after I posted this here). Doesn't anyone care about this release? [​IMG]

    Far be it from us to diride a classic such as Scooby, David. We all love him and are glad he's going on new adventures. Let's face it, however; if this doesn't show the same respect to Mexican culture the way that Lilo & Stitch payed homage to the hula, we're all going to hear about it from the PC police.

    This is second of two part deal where they got all the original cast they could right? Vampire was huge step in right direction few months ago. Here is hoping the are edging there way back to original run.

    I'm not sure, but I don't think that's right. I think "the goat sucker" would be "el chupador de cabra". Oh well.

    There's some good info on it here.
