It’s genuinely unusual that even when the Scooby of today meets a celebrity, it’s a celebrity from the 70s. Anyway, here’s Scooby-Doo and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery. Though if you ask me, I’ll tell you the real mystery is how both of us grown men had managed to convince ourselves that Gene Simmons was the lead singer of KISS instead of just their weird gross bassist.
Great review! New equipment sounds good.
It sounds like this movie is a send-up of the equally batshit “KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park” – a live-action film where KISS uses their glam super-powers to save an amusement park from a mad scientist. It’s notable mostly for a completely coked-out Ace Freeley making bird calls during most of the film. Definitely a film for consideration on the Big List.
Listened for the 2nd time and realize you already mentioned “KISS Meets the Phantom” at the end. My bad!
For the record I laughed at immigranite.
Regarding the Hanna-Barbera titles DC made, the general consensus for them was as follows:
Wacky Raceland – Complete dogshit
Scooby-Doo Apocalypse – Eeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhh
Future Quest – Good, but the pacing was kinda slow
The Flintstones – One of, if not THE best thing DC was publishing at the time. Yes, really.
