Pony Thought of the Day: Scootaloos and Scooby-Doos

When I think about it, the history of MLP and the history of Scooby-Doo are pretty similar. They both started as cheaply made cartoons in an era of cheaply made crap, and the first iteration of both was slightly better than it ought to be, but still not actually good.

Then each successive version got worse and worse… until 2010, when all of a sudden this new, brilliant, very postmodern version came out, and distinguished itself as a major departure and improvement before the opening credits of the first episode.

Mystery, Inc. getting arrested is to Scooby-Doo as the tale of Nightmare Moon is to MLP.
