chainsaws! like zoinks!

So they're re-making The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I'm sad to report that it is not the re-make I've been waiting for: the one starring Scooby Doo. Seriously, think about it: Massacre has the canonical Scooby Doo plot:

  • stoned hippies crossing the country, check;
  • Mystery Machine, check;
  • bickering, check;
  • spooky house, check;
  • "let's split up", check;
  • masked villain, check;
  • and, uh, probably more.

"Ruh roh!"

    and scooby could be a junkie, with fred as his dealer.

    "Will you do it for some scooby smack?"

    but when will the remakes end?
    I figured after seeing the remake of the Regan administration, people would finally get tired of recycling nostalgia and move on.

    Do you ever watch Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law (Cartoon Network, Adult Swim)? There was a great episode ("Shaggy Busted") in which Shaggy gets arrested for "erratic driving" and Mr. Birdman has to defend him in court. Wonderful stuff.

      yes, they were nervous, and talking about looking for a green monster. that episode was great.

    As long as they don't replace the chainsaws with walkie-talkies.
