SCOOBY DOO is going to suck so hard its lips will have friction burns!

On November 16th, 2000... I lost my mind with anger and frustration. I fumed and vomitted forth all of my inner fears about Matt Lillard and Freddie Prinze Jr and making SCOOBY DOO the right way. (CLICK HERE TO READ ALL THAT) Well, now we have something tangible to scream about... Something that we can point to and scream "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH THIS THING?!?!?!?"

Below you will find a link to the Access Hollywood piece of fluff that gives us our first look at the characters in costume. While Sarah Michelle Gellar looks like some sort of fetish dream of Daphne... Freddie Prinze Jr is wearing what looks to be the worst wig in the history of mankind. Look at how he seems to be portraying the 90lb weakling version of Fred. There is no confidence in that face, and if you look at those cold dead eyes of his, you can tell... instantly that there is no soul... Hell the Hanna Barbara ink and paint department put more life into the cel's eyes than Freddie has.

Then there is Velma... She has the right costume, but again... THE WORST FEMALE WIG EVER! And by the way, if those are not wigs, then Christ on a cross, somebody is a sick and twisted hair dresser. Meanwhile in the footage, the Warner EPK (electronic press kit) folks have wisely chosen to not show the face of the beast... the wide mouthed jackal... MATT LILLARD as Shaggy... but even from behind, I could tell I had an unreasonable amount of hatred being thrown in his general direction.

Also, is it just me, or do those clothes not look right with those backgrounds? Ya see... this is what Bryan Singer was talking about with the costumes in X-MEN... The costumes have to look like they are a part of that world, and here... against that building with those cars... They look like cut-outs. Ok, so we'll be looking at tomorrow's full report, but till then... This is Harry telling you to beware Freddie Lillard and Matt Prinze Jr! The scariest pair ever to team upon the screen. Where is the Muppet Hook when you most need it?!?!?!?

It's a 2MB 320x240 :22 QuickTime file of the promo at the end of today's Access Hollywood for their on-set Scooby report which will air tomorrow.

P.S.: Thanks to ROBOGEEK for digitizing this.
