Hanna-Barbera

Debbie On a Table

For those who don’t recognize this little lady, this is Debbie from the Hanna-Barbera show Speed Buggy. Like Jabberjaw, Speed Buggy was one of Hanna-Barbera’s attempts at recreating the success of Scooby-Doo, this time with the mascot being a talking car. The human cast for this series was smaller than many of the others, presumably so they could easily fit into Speed Buggy along with any side characters the episode had. Debbie was the only girl in the group, the other two being Mark (kinda like a dark-haired Freddie) and Tinker (kinda like Shaggy if he was a mechanic). I think of Hanna-Barbera’s many mystery solving ladies, Debbie might be the most conventionally pretty. For me she doesn’t quite reach the levels of Velma, or Shelly, who are probably my favorites, but her design is very pretty. Her personality is a bit on the generic side, I think, and she’s not really that different than early Daphne, but I do like her design a lot. Unfortunately, being the only gal, I don’t have any convenient lesbian pairings for her like I do the Scooby-Doo and Jabberjaw gals (and I’m really not super interested in drawing Mark or Tinker, or Speed Buggy for that matter). That’s why we’ve got her posing solo here. I might do a bit more solo work with her in the future, I don’t know, or I might try crossing her over with some of the other girls from these shows who are also the only girls in their teams.
As for this pic, I put Debbie on the table we see them building Speed Buggy on in the opening title sequence. It’s zoomed in pretty close ’cause that was just a brown table in a featureless blue void, but I put a few mechanical parts lying around for more context. Anyway, I hope you all like Debbie and enjoy seeing her like this.

Neptunes Pinup

I believe I mentioned before that I wanted to draw Shelly and Bubbles some more. Shelly was an early childhood crush of mine, and I’ve really come to like drawing Bubbles lately. I don’t know why I didn’t really notice before drawing her, but I think she’s really cute. I can’t explain what it is I like so much about Shelly, but I hope I’m not the only one fond of these two. I can’t say for sure how much more I’ll be drawing either of them, but there’s a good chance they’ll show up again. For this pic I just wanted to pose them in a way to show more of their bodies, since I felt the last pic didn’t show them off as much as I would’ve liked. I like doing these posing/pinup type pictures, you’ve maybe noticed I’ve been releasing them a bit more frequently lately. Do you guys like them, too, or is it just me on my end? If people like them I’d be happy to sprinkle them into the release schedule more often. Anyway, enjoy these underwater pop stars.

Wilcox Gemini

So not that long ago, some of you may remember me drawing the one-off Scooby-Doo villain the Ghost Witch of Old Salem from the Scooby-Doo Show episode “To Switch a Witch”. I sketched this picture around the same time, but decided to wait and see how people responded to the first pic of her before inking and coloring it. I was pleasantly surprised with the positive response her first pic got, so I picked this back up to wrap it up. Spoilers here, but the plot of the episode revolves around the Ghost Witch framing her twin sister, Arlene Wilcox, since nobody knows she has a twin and the ghost supposedly looks like her. The mystery is solved when the gang reveals the existence of this evil twin, though we never get her name or see her unmasked (though supposedly she looks like Arlene without the costume). I knew after watching the episode I wanted to draw these twins together, so here it is. I don’t much expect I’ll draw Arlene again, unless it’s to pair her with the Ghost Witch. Even though she’s pretty enough, she’s attractive in a way that’s not super interesting to me, so her main purpose in my mind is as a potential incestuous partner for the much more interesting-looking Ghost Witch character.

Dinkley Sisters Kiss

So this here’s a pic of Velma with her younger sister Madelyn, who’s a supporting character in “Abracadabra-Doo”. In the film she’s more of a love interest for Shaggy, but you guys know me. I just had to pair her with Velma, and honestly lately I’ve just been wanting to pair everyone with Velma. I decided to go with a cute kissing pic here, but I’m definitely interested in returning to this pairing eventually with something lewder. Hopefully you guys enjoy this sisterly bonding as much as I did. ^_^

MomSwap – Velma and Mrs. Dinkley

So, like I did with Daphne before, I’m using the “A Pup Named Scooby-Doo” version of Velma and her mom for the MomSwap series. Now, Velma’s mom in “Mystery Incorporated” is named Angie, but that version of the franchise is clearly in a completely different universe than any other version. That’s why I used the name Elizabeth for Daphne’s mom, rather than Nan, and why I’m just going with Mrs. Dinkley for Velma’s mom. However, like with Daphne, I do think there’s a good chance I’ll draw the “Mystery Incorporated” equivalent of this pairing somewhere down the line, since I do like the idea of Velma and Angie getting it on.

Shelly and Bubbles

So, this may be news to some folks since I think I’ve only really talked about it on Discord, but here these past couple months I’ve been watching a lot of old Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Specifically I’ve been interested in the “teenagers and a mascot” cartoons that they pumped out to try and milk the success of Scooby-Doo (their funny animal cartoons are fun, too, but this formula specifically is what I’ve been invested in). I’ve always really liked how Hanna-Barbera’s girls looked. I think the style is cute and charming, so almost any female characters in their cartoons would interest me, even at a young age. That being said, I’ve been wanting to draw some of the girls from these mystery solving and adventure teams, the girls who would fill the roles of Daphne and Velma in the group. Shelly LaMarine (the dark haired one) and Bubbles Blowton (the blonde) were two such characters from Jabberjaw, the cartoon where the mascot was a big shark who talked like Curly from the Three Stooges.
I remember having a big crush on Shelly as a kid, especially. Something about how slick her hair always looked, plus her general bitchy attitude (I have a thing for brats) and the way Jabberjaw was into her all appealed to me in ways I couldn’t quite explain back then. I knew when I wanted to start drawing some of these characters she’d be first on my list, and I decided to pair her with Bubbles in a similar way to how I pair Daphne and Velma. Shelly and Bubbles have a very different dynamic, though, with Shelly being the bratty type I already described, and Bubbles being every bit the ditzy/dumb blonde stereotype. I came to appreciate Bubbles more while drawing this pic, I think she’s a lot cuter than I’d originally thought, so I definitely would like to draw both of them again (maybe together, maybe separate). I’ve got a number of other Hanna-Barbera heroines I’d like to get to as well, though, so we’ll see how long it takes. Hopefully y’all will like them as much as I do and they can become semi-regulars around here. ^_^

The Ghost Witch of Old Salem

So for the past couple months I’ve been watching a lot of Scooby-Doo content. This started with watching Mystery Incorporated, then to watching several of the animated movies (a mix of the recent specials, the mid-2000’s DVDs, and the classic 80’s movies). Currently I’m watching “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?”, but I’ve also been watching a few random episodes of the classic series. One of these episodes is “To Switch a Witch”, from “The Scooby-Doo Show”. It’s nothing too out there for classic Scooby-Doo, but part of why I wanted to watch it was that the monster of this one really caught my eye. She’s the resurrected ghost of Milissa Wilcox, a victim of the Salem witch trials who’s returned for revenge. It’s a classic witch trope, though this being Scooby-Doo she’s obviously not really Wilcox’s ghost.
The thing that makes this ghost special, for me, is that the story of the episode meant she couldn’t be an old crone like most other Scooby-Doo witches. The gang is brought into the mystery because they came to help Velma’s friend Arlene Wilcox settle this old estate. Arlene is Milissa’s descendant, and the townspeople think the ghost is coming back through her body because they have the same face. Since Arlene’s a pretty young woman, this means the witch is also pretty (though they gave her spooky eyes and creases around the mouth, which kinda spoils the illusion of them looking identical for the viewer, since IMHO she looks about as much like Arlene as she does Daphne). Anyway, spoilers for a 30+ year old cartoon coming up, but the ghost is actually Arlene’s long lost twin sister she didn’t know about. It’s kinda a weak reveal, and we don’t even see her unmasked or get a name for her (although we can assume she just looks exactly like Arlene).
The episode is fun, but I felt inexplicably drawn to this ghost witch. Not only do I think her design is really appealing, but her witchy laugh and general antics in the episode also charmed me. I don’t know if it’s just me, or if other folks will enjoy this too, but I really wanted to draw her. Obviously this sort of pic would be more timely at Halloween (the episode itself is even a Halloween episode), but if I waited for the calendar to catch up I’m sure I would’ve forgotten about her. I did another sketch of her and Arlene both presenting their asses side-by-side, and I might go ahead and finish/release that pic down the road if people seem interested in this one. It’s hard for me to guess since I’m not sure how much people will agree with me on this character, and she’s a relatively deep cut… Anyway, I hope you all can enjoy this spooky gal.

Blakes Poolside

So a while back I released a Daphne Blake MomSwap entry, using the “A Pup Named Scooby-Doo” versions of Daphne and her mother (who I used the name Elizabeth for, since that was the name of Daphne’s mom in the older shows). Mystery Incorporated uses a completely different continuity, however, with more prominently featured parents for all the main cast. Daphne’s mom in this version is named Nan, and she’s sorta like this shallow, airhead trophy wife type character. All the women in Daphne’s family look like alternate designs for Daphne herself, including her mom, but the plus side of that is that all the women in Daphne’s family are pretty hot. Nan herself seems like a taller, bustier Daphne with longer and slightly oranger hair (and a hat). I put them by the pool we see the gang hang out in once or twice.
I have more stuff planned from this version of Scooby-Doo down the road, including a return to Hot Dog Water/Velma content. There’s a lot of characters unique to this version of the franchise I’d like to explore, but I’d also like to dabble in some stuff from other versions too eventually. The challenge will just be finding the time, so I can’t say how long it’ll be until we see Scooby-Doo stuff pop up again. ^_^;

Velma and Marcie

I recently started watching Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, the 2010 Scooby-Doo series. I’m only partway through it right now, but I’m enjoying it. When it first came out I wasn’t a huge fan of the redesigns for the characters, but I’ve moved past that now. One thing I appreciate about this incarnation of the franchise is all the new characters it brought in, one of whom is Marcie Fleach, also known as “Hot Dog Water”, a cute nerdy girl with ties to Velma. I don’t want to get into her role in the series too much, but she’s a fun alternative ship for Velma. I think it’s likely I’ll draw this pairing again, although I’m definitely not done with Velma and Daphne as a pairing.
