Wrestling Federation’s Animation Survey

First they took our Cocoa Pebbles, and now they want our cartoons!

It was announced back in August that WWE (Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment) was teaming up with Warner Bros. to make a new Scooby Doo movie guest starring several wrestling superstars and divas.

Yesterday the WWE sent a survey to its fans (posted below) which – if you read between the lines – might say something its future plans in animation… Wrestlers versus The Justice League? The Smurfs? The Looney Tunes?

They also ask about non-Warner characters such as The Rugrats, He-Man and Alvin and The Chipmunks (???).

We all remember Space Jam. Sports figures and cartoons – What’s your opinion?


Here’s the WWE survey:

    Rugrats?! :D Count me in

  • Jamz

    It’s a damn good idea…creates jobs for many animation graduates …I hope we see even more of these fine pictures

      It’s a good idea if it makes sense. Rugrats or Smurfs or Alvin and the Chipmunks? I can’t see that happening. I can see Looney Tunes do it though. This would indeed help some of these franchises. Look at how many people remember Space Jam and thought how cool it was. WWE is big right now; it can happen here too.

  • Chris Smigliano

    Well, at least with SCOOBY the special might be somewhat watchable….Can it be as POSSIBLY bad as HULK HOGAN’S ROCK AND WRESTLING??

  • Valentin M.

    Itchy and Scratchy would make perfect sense.

  • Retro00064

    Oh, the horror…

    Who cares? I did your damn survey did I not?
    Which of the following ranges best describes your total annual household income (before taxes)?”
    Bend over and I’ll show ya!

  • Polecat

    Scooby-Doo + WWE = unwatchable tv squared. Just my opinion.

  • kaz diati

    Thank God “Hulk Hogan’s Rock and Wrestling” wasn’t an option. The WWF and the WWE just don’t mix.

  • wever

    Why?? They’re a WRESTING FEDERATION!!

  • Jon

    “What is your race / ethnicity?
    Which of the following ranges best describes your total annual household income (before taxes)?”

    Umm.. Ok… Why do they need that information? o.O

  • Daniel J. Drazen

    Considering that it’s the WWE, I thought they would have mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog just for the ‘tude alone.

  • MissConception

    I’m not one for being a smart ass, but if I were ever to take that survey, I might just answer every questions with, “NO. Don’t do it.”

  • DBenson

    Introducing Eye Gouge Smurf!

    I guess the Chess Federation deal fell through (Jerry replaces rook with firecracker. Tom prepares to castle . . . ). And competitive cheerleading (“Give me a P-P-P-P-P-P . . . . Give me a cheer.”) And Trump Enterprises (“Let’s see your birth certificate, Kent!”)

  • atc483

    Got dangit why couldn’t this idea be conceived back when The Rock, Stone Cold and crew were active.

    • Onel Alvarez

      They can still put them in the cartoons. All they need is their voices. They can even throw in Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair and immortalize them. Hogan used to have a cartoon with a bunch of his contemporaries in the 80s. It was fun for me when I was a kid.
