Scooby-Doo Performs on Fox News

This appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” gives new meaning to the question, “Scooby-Doo, where are you?”

  • Shouldn’t really introduce a man dressed as Scooby Doo with a clip of Scooby doo pulling off his face.

  • Spencer


  • Alex Vvedensky

    I first saw this without sound and thought what is this news report about?

  • Jason


  • Perdo Nakama

    This is on the news? What does it have to do with the high cost of gasoline?

  • Arnold

    Sublime dada-esque 2013 media moment with Hanna-Barbera’s chief contribution to western culture lip synching to a prerecorded theme park-worthy audio track as the Chyron graphic crawl at screen bottom details the latest Orange county mass shooting by a mentally deranged human. The topper is that it all unfolded on Fox, which says it all.

    • See why I don’t watch TV?

    • CG_Animator

      Are they lip syncing? No wonder they look bored haha.

  • Scott Shaw!

    Another reason why I loathe most incarnations of Scooby-Doo. And is Velma played by a man here?

  • CG_Animator

    LOL gotta love those half-hearted dance moves. Is it me, or do the actors all look and sound bored?

  • aron

    So many people rolling in their graves right now, i’m sure.

  • jhalpernkitcat

    This is really sad. I think it’s because the newscasters are attempting to pretend that the characters are actually real and the actual actors are going along with it by trying to stay in character.

  • I had thought the “Fox & Friends” sketch on SNL was a spoof.

  • Joseph Hudak

    Sooo does this meant we’ll be getting the rest of “Mystery Incorporated” soon? As cringe-worthy as this was (they clearly weren’t cast for singing ability) “Mystery Inc” was dropped somewhere in that mess.

  • Speechless.

  • Paul Badilla

    Ohhhhh maaaannn…. this is really saaaaddd…. it gives me bad shivers….

  • Mr. James

    I couldn’t make it past the 1:15 mark. When they started dancing and singing I was too embarrassed FOR THEM to watch any further.
    Also, what’s with the limp wristed way the Shaggy actor is moving? I never noticed that about Shaggy’s cartoon character and even in the live-action movie version he didn’t do that. It just looks extremely odd and even though Shaggy did have a kind of stooped posture his hands never did THAT on the cartoon.

  • This is a real recording from Fox News, right? It’s not a well-done parody?

  • Jason

    Scooby Doo is a 43 year old property that won’t be laid to rest and MOST of it’s new shows and movies have been some rather pathetic attempts to keep it propped up in our faces. Now in 2013, some seemingly half assed theatrical play of this is taking up screen time on a cable news channel that’s notorious for reporting fluffy nonsense over real world issues as the headlines “Shooting rampage in southern CA leaves four people dead” roll across the bottom. I can’t speak for everyone here, but there’s not much happy and joy in that.

  • this made me realy sad :(

  • Andrew

    WOW! I have to say first that I expect this kind of cheesy-ness from Fox and Friends, but Scooby Doo??? I know that Shaggy does that arm thing in the cartoons, but that actor was horrible. I officially died a little after watching this.

  • lame…hanna and barbera would be turning in their graves…

  • As surreal and awkward this is, I gotta love the actors. Like animators, the things they do to work in their craft. They certainly did their homework on the limited individual character poses. :)
    It probably plays better to a theatre of screaming 0 to 7 year olds.

  • James

    I don’t understand why everyone hated this. These are the most credible journalists Fox news has ever had.

  • YW Purnomosidhi

    I hope I can have a dog like Scooby.
