In which Scootaloo, her human friends, and their mutant talking dog ride around in a van solving mysteries together.

An idea I can't get out of my head, so I figure why not use it to get back into the swing of writing?

*sees this story description*

AW HECK YEAH!

Scootaloo is best Scrappy-Doo replacement.

I gotta check this out. :)

"mutant dog" best description for Scooby ever. Giving this a read XD

There is so much right with this:pinkiehappy:. Make it a series, we will follow you off a cliff.

Pinkie Pie!!!:rainbowlaugh: I should've guessed that but i didn't. Surprised me for sure!:rainbowlaugh:

awesome idea keep it going and update more chapters every day please

the Ghost of Mecha-Krampus

And that's where I lost it the first time. That's like a threefer.

Zombie Klingon Hamlet's Dad

Aaand number two.

Yeah, that's a neat idea. Might work better if set in ponyland, I think, because this is really not so much a MLP crossover with Scooby Doo as a Scooby Doo fanfic with a little MLP flavouring, but otherwise, it's fun. Those are two shows that, weirdly enough, have a very similar kind of feel and tone to them. They complement well.

Please get rid of Scooby's retarded speech impediment, though. I know it's faithful to the source, but it's also unreadable and utterly obnoxious.

I see what you did there lol

You have gained my attention. I like how the gang has become aware that they should research first.

Instant thumbs up for creativity! Lets see where this goes...

I crack up every time I see 'Rootaroo'. It's too much for me.

what the f what the f what the f
This is... I can't. This is pure majesty.

Pretty fair, was surprised that the ascot was gone, and at Daphne's instance at that. Was also surprised that it's set modern day and Shaggy and Scooby were eating long rotted goods. They always ate excessively, but I don't much recall them eating anything that legitimately looked inedible, though I suppose there was at least that one time with the "wash" broth...

These are nitpicks however, I raised an eyebrow at how simple the trap was intended to be, but you did give it a classic flawed execution. Moreover, Scootalo's indictment of Scooby the talking dog was on point. Margo covering Scoot's ears for the initial rundown of the story seemed like something I'd expect to see if the series were redone today, with the spirit and sensibilities of the original run's era, featured a younger cast member, and the show were going to feature such themes. I appreciated Scootalo's quick wit in realizing the ghost was after the book and that she should take it with her, a measured defiance of danger some of the property's extras over the years could learn from. Overall, the story you've written seems to capture the best of the old show's spirit.

This said, most of the cast didn't get to do much. Which leaves me concerned that adding Applebloom and Sweetie Belle as regulars may bloat the already sizable cast, but if you think you can pull it off, it would indeed be a sight to see.

I think you've done well here, and if you continue, I look forward to seeing where you go. I'll add this story to my tracking list.

Oh yeah, so added to tracking. The nostalgia is coming back to me now...

You sir… Have all my likes. Here, take them, Their yours…

:scootangel:
there is no way this end badly…

I just jixed it didn't I… :rainbowderp:

7463665 No, you didn't jinx it, you jinked it.

With all the jinkies.

A pointlessly elaborated pun gone right. Looking forward to more.

Up until the end, I thought this story was going follow the original series to the new series, films, movies, video games, etc, bringing with Scootaloo along with the gang.

Y'know, for being nostalgic.

But the change is nice and it deserves a fav, a track, and a like.

Can't wait for the next episode!

:rainbowlaugh:
Ohohoho this... this was good.

Damn good show!

That was hilarious! Just like watching an old episode of the show. A round of applause for you, good author!

"Oh, I dunno, maybe because you're a talking dog!? I mean, dogs don't talk even on my world! And everything talks on my world!"

Racist Scootaloo is racist. :scootangel:

7463620
Wow you are taking this really seriously

7463912 As funny as that might be, I have to be Mr. Buzzkill and say that Scootaloo might not know of the Diamond Dogs because they stay hidden from ponies

7464082

And didn't Sweetie tell her fellow Crusaders about the time her sister was captured and put to work in their mine? Didn't Dash ever told her number 1 fan about Rarity's rescue, and how many dog asses she kicked?

7463149

You know I was a little concerned about whether Scooby's lines would be intelligible or not. Thing is, it just doesn't feel like Scooby to me without the 'r's... That said, in future chapters I expect I'll dial it WAY back, but not get rid of it completely. (For example, Scooby's 'Shaggy' will still be 'Rhaggy' and 'help' 'relp' but otherwise mostly normal.

7463620

Yeah, in the actual show I don't think we ever see them eating anything that's clearly rotten. But, considering just how often they help themselves to food they find in abandoned places, it feels like a logical extrapolation.

7463912

To me, the diamond dogs seem as different from regular dogs as equestrian ponies are from real ponies or humans are from lemurs. (Note we've never seen Wynona say anything.) Connecting regular dogs with diamond dogs probably just never occurred to Scoots.

7464298
That's enough for me, honestly. It's doing it with literally every second word that's just way too much. Dial it down to that and I'm good.

7464248 Not on the show, anyway the diamond dogs only came back in the comics. It doesn't really matter

The heck was that ending?

7464304

Fair enough, I actually thought about that myself as well when commenting. I figured that the places they ate might not actually be as abandoned as advertised, given the masked folks running around also need to eat something. Still, I can see it as a stretch either way and you are the author. As said before, looking forward to seeing future capers if you decide to write them.:ajsmug:

Oh hells yes, this needs to be a continuing thing.

Bravo my good chap. Bravo. i3.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/013/974/clap.gif

And because I just have too.

I always wanted there to be a Scooby-Doo/Scootaloo story. You've made my life complete.

In all my life of crossovers, I have NEVER thought of this one. Why is that? Why would I fail to think of my childhood incarnate like this? I grew up on Scooby Doo, breathed Scooby Doo, and watched it every single day before I would head off to school. This is probably the best idea ever. When this completes, I will inhale this story and remember a time when life just wasn't fucked, a time when I would sit on my ass with a blanket over me and giggle at Scooby Doo. You win so much internet for literally thinking of something I didn't.

I was always partial to Velma. She seemed like she had it together and knew what was up. The girl couldn't help but lose her glasses every single FUCKING episode, but she was awesome and always was unshakable. Nothing surprised her. Scooby Doo was my childhood and for THAT alone you rock!

Ah, ok, I really hope you write more "episodes" of this, this was hilarious. A bit more of a parody than even the typical Scooby Doo episode, but I don't mind. Though really, not like most people ever reacted to Scooby talking in the show itself (I think? Been so many years since I watched an episode). Good Scootaloo didn't end up in Crystal Cove, that place is insane (setting of one of the more recent Scooby Doo series). Or Scootaloo might have loved it, who knows.

Scootaloo needs a middle name now, to go with the Scooby Dooby Doo thing. Scoota-Danger-Loo where are you? Maybe?

7464736

Yeah, lemme ask a question of anyone who reads this: In the original series, as you say, no one reacted to Scooby talking even though as I remember it was only Scooby and others of his family that talked, while all other dogs seen in the show were just normal dogs. That's why I thought it would be funny to include a nonsensical dynamic where everyone the gang meets thinks nothing of the presence of a talking alien pegasus but freaks right the hell out over a talking dog. Question is: Is this dynamic worth keeping in future chapters?

Zombie Klingon Hamlet's Dad, Ghostzilla, The Atomic Skeleton, The Possessed Were-Mummy, and just yesterday the Ninja Zombie Pirate Robot!" She grinned. "Actually, that last one was kind of cool..."

Fan freaking tastic! :rainbowlaugh:

Well, you've got the spirit of the scoobidoo series down. I'm just not sure what the pony are doing here aside from... being here?
Eh. Good enough for me. It was lot and lot of fun. :pinkiehappy:

7464800 Yeah I think that's pretty funny actually.

7464800 i could kiss you for this story more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...so no one else is going to do it? I'm the one who has to take care of this grand injustice and fix what has been forgotten?

Fine.

Ahem

Scoota-loota-loo,Where are you
We got some work to do now
Scoota-loota-loo,Where are you
We need some help from you now

Come on, Scootaloo, they need you
to help end this silly fable
But if you don’t appear, then I fear
Twilight will smash a table!

You know we got a mystery to solve and Scootaloo,
Let’s end this arc
not on a lark!
And Scootaloo if you come through you're gonna have
yourself a Cutie Mark!

Scoota-loota-loo,where are you
You're ready and you're willing
If we can count on you, Scootaloo
then this fic is just beginning!


EDIT: I also demand cameos by the Harlem Globetrotters and Batman and Robin.

7464705
You took the words right out of my mouth. I still have many of the older episodes memorized...

This was great. 5 out of five! :scootangel: :scootangel: :scootangel: :scootangel: :scootangel:

And theres all five of the Scootaloo's I mentioned

7465221

It was why I was partial to the movie. Yeah, it wasn't the best, but I am easily entertained. Out of the entire lineup of talking computer generated animals, Scooby Doo was the only duo of movies that I was able to stand. Plus anyone that made Scrappy a villain deserves love. Ironically I read somewhere that Scrappy saved Scooby Doo and that is some serious underwhelming irony. I didn't mind any of Scooby's cousins, but Scrappy was just annoying because he was a Sue. He was never scared, underwhelmed or a coward. He just wanted to splat things. If they made him a bit more flawed and less "perfect" I probably wouldn't have cared.

Scootaloo seems to be similar to Scrappy in this sense... but I don't think this is what it sounds like. Scrappy was a tag along and shares a lot of similarities to Scootaloo. She is brave like he is (never mind the meme that says otherwise... Scrappy doesn't show fear and probably would fake bravery) and stronger than she thinks she is.

I don't think the author will make her into a Scrappy, and the secondary reason I like this idea is because of Scootaloo who is my favorite Crusader. I didn't mean to compare Scootaloo to Scrappy (her haters might though) but they do share similar attributes and seem tagged along. I don't know. Before I dig myself deeper, I will just state that Scooby Doo remains one of the best cartoons ever. I watched most of the movies, Zombie Island remains a personal favorite.

Im glad you had this version of the ending. Still i didnt expect Pinkie pie. I wish you had a bacground how Scoots got there and well her returning to equestria but the team going also maybe as a vacation.

Please continue

I always liked scrappy. I thought he was an idiot for trying to always fight the villain (considering most were adult males, I don't think any fight would have gone his way.) He reminded me of how I had to drag one of my wayward relatives out of trouble. All. The. Time.

But I totally agree that Zombie Island was the best. The twist on what the zombies were trying to do was fantastic and the only time I've ever seen it.
