90% of the screen time is the villain, heavy flashing lights

Show literally has nothing to do with Scooby-Doo. Unrelated villains are the focus abd Shaggy and Scooby were pretty much stuck in this show for familiar characters appeal. It was canceled because kids were bored out if their minds watching this. I can't see how anyone, child or Scooby fan could enjoy this. Also a few dirty jokes and one character saying "inappropriate touching". Also heavy flashing lights warning! Constantly intense flashing, sometimes goes on for minuets. White flash effect whenever anything gets hit, which is every minute. Nothing to enjoy so just skip this and watch any other Scooby thing. Pup named Scooby-Doo is perfect for young kids.

Too much violence

It would have been better without Shaggy and Scooby Doo

While it was mind-numbingly boring and had no semblance to any Scooby Doo media before or after, it is something that I don't have a problem exposing children to. The villain was evil and did bad things, but he was the villain and it was clear that he was Bad. I don't think a child will confuse that concept in this situation. The character design was reminiscent of sad generic clipart, but there was a lot of good movement applied to it. Out of 26 episodes, I recommend only watching 7 of them for your own sanity if you have to watch any at all. ( Episodes 1, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16 and 26).
