Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #2: Scooby Doo, Where are You!

There have been many versions of Scooby Doo, in TV and Movies, and many versions of Scooby Doo theme songs. Don’t even get us started on the ones that included Scrappy Doo. For years, Scooby Doo has been fighting “The Simpsons” for the Guinness Book World Record for most episodes of a cartoon. Way before the Scooby Doo franchise “jumped the shark” with Scrappy Doo, in 1969, there was “Scooby Doo, Where are you!” Apparently, it was the exclamation point that won over the question mark because it was being yelled by Shaggy. This version of the theme song is the first, and still the best, after all these years.

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where’s Wall-E

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where's Wall-E

Throughout the history of Hollywood, there’s been an incredible collection of robots. C-3PO and R2-D2 from Star Wars, Bender from Futurama, Rosie from the Jetsons, countless Tarnsformers and Go-Bots, etc. Hopewell Studio’s Richard Sargent, through a process that must have seemed bionic, actually sat down to draw a collage of nearly 200 bots, posing together in a classic group shot, and hiding one of animation’s favorite bots: Wall-E from the recent Disney and Pixar film. It’s a Where’s Wall-E game, just like the classic Where’s Waldo ones. Sure, it’s awesome to hunt for the little guy, but even more enjoyable just going through the entire project, looking for all the other robots you remember. In fact, there’s even a blank version so that you can number your guesses to see how many you can name. Give it a try!
