Notes: Ha! Actually writing the notes on the day I finished the vid. As is the story with so many projects anymore, this started as a completely different vid with a completely different song. I was going to draw out the horror elements of the original "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" series and try to develop a crushingly oppressive atmosphere of fear. Because I'm kind of a dick sometimes.

Obviously that didn't work out. However, in my clipping, I was reminded about how, as a very lonely little boy, I imprinted so deeply on the platonic life partnership of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. That was my life goal -- to have a friendship that ran that deep, even through stress and crisis and occasional moments of the asinine.

Guys, it is so hard to find a good platonic love song. Everything contains sensual references or heavy romantic overtones. I found "Love Don't Die" at the last minute; it was the song that Laura Bailey picked to represent her Critical Role character's relationship with her bear companion.

Everything from this vid (with the obvious exceptions) comes from the three pre-Scrappy series: Scooby-Doo Where Are You!, The New Scooby-Doo Movies, and The Scooby-Doo Show. The limited animation style meant a lot of static nonsense, but it also meant that I could shorten clips *in the middle* and not have a distracting jump cut. In a couple of places, I compressed clip time with mattes, putting multiple otherwise solo figures against the same background (in the source, that gorilla chase never features more than one character on screen at a time).

The little vidlet at the end ("Be My Yoko Ono" by Barenaked Ladies) was something I had even before I knew what the song for the vid proper was. It's one those delightful concepts that probably couldn't sustain a full vid (and even if it could, I'd have to clip a lot more Scrappy-Doo and dear god why?). If you think you could make a full vid out of the idea, go for it. I give it freely.
