The Lyrics

Not all calls for censorship are fanatical, sometimes they're more subtle (but IMHO that's just as evil). When I grew up animated cartoons were almost forbidden in Sweden thanks to a "no ban in theory - ban in reality" at both our government controlled channels (there were no others back then). Almost forbidden meaning they were basically only allowed during mornings two weeks per summer and mornings two weeks per Christmas school leave and in-between Bulgarian puppet theatre episodes (Scooby-Doo) and for a Christmas Evening afternoon special in-between stuff even more boring (Disney) that has become so legendary that it still lives on today. Needless to say I still feel nostalgic when I happen to stumble upon an early morning episode of Scooby-Doo and hence the working title for this parody was "I love Scooby-Doo" (but it ended up as something being sung in terror by Shaggy).
I saw a bunch of ghouls by the myst'ry machine
I knew it must have been around seventeen
My fear was growing strong
Loud my heart did gong
And I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till they would eat me, poor me
And I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till they would eat me, poor me's screaming

Run now Scooby-Doo!
We'll run another mile in the wrong direction!
Run now Scooby-Doo!
Now come you lousy dog and flee with me!

They smiled so I ran off and into a shrine
That don't helped us a bit cos there's Frankenstein
I want my mum and home
Where werewolfs do not foam
But I'll be screaming on
Heebie- has me, poor me
Yeah, I'll be screaming on
-Jiebies has me, poor me's screaming

Run now Scooby-Doo!
We'll run another mile in the wrong direction!
Run now Scooby-Doo!
Now come you lousy dog and flee with me!

I want a place to hide
Where Bigfoot will not slide

But I'll be screaming on
Monsters chase me, poor me
Yeah I'll be screaming on
That King Kong is free!
No! No! No! Poor me's screaming

Run now Scooby-Doo!
We'll run another mile in the wrong direction!
Run now Scooby-Doo!
Now come you lousy dog and flee with me!

Run now Scooby-Doo!
We'll run another mile in the wrong direction!
Run now Scooby-Doo!
Now come you lousy dog and flea with me!

Run now Scooby-Doo!
We'll run another year thanks to syndication!
Run now Scooby-Doo!
Now come you lousy dog and flee with me!

(Suddenly Scrappy-Doo enters and the song dies prematurely)

Johnny D: It's true. For a while the long time ruling social democrats here came very close to turning communistic, there was even a period with no television at all after eleven o'clock in the evenings because of concerns for the working class masses and their ability to get up in the morning!!! (As far as I know only Albania in all of Europe had a more restrictive policy). Anyway: Cell phones, a third pirate channel satelliting from London, a term out of office in the early 90s for their party and the arrival internet freedom set thier pendulum swinging back again (though the justice minister at the time is still remembered for the recorded quote: "The Internet is just a fad and it will soon be forgotten" (my rough translation).

Great parody of a great cartoon (excepts the ending were always the same "If it wasn't for those meddling...". I hated Scrappy Doo. 5 peanut butter and ice cream sandwiches.
