Scooby-Doo Fisher Price Little People

Growing up, Scooby-Doo was one of my favorite cartoons. The original Scooby still is. Everything up until Scrappy-Doo came along was great. And really, even Scrappy was okay, it was just that he gave Fred, Daphne and Velma the boot so what had been Mystery, Inc. became Shaggy and two dogs. Which isn't nearly as entertaining. Or smart. Or scary.

I like the classic Scooby-Doo with the Mystery Machine and the Scooby Snax and even the random guest appearance by Sandy Duncan or Don Knotts or Mama Cass. Because who knows when you'll run into Mama Cass, right? Well, not now. But in the seventies, sure. And if she's running a haunted candy factory, all the better.

This set of Little People is just the five main characters as seen in the original Scooby-Doo series. Later on I'll show you some classic Scooby Villains I've made. Scrappy won't be among them.

The Mystery Machine--one of only two Fisher Price Little People vehicles I've customized from existing Fisher Price toys. The other one is the Batmobile. Personally, I think this ride is sweeter.

The whole Mystery Inc. gang. They're not like, a street gang. They used to the term "gang" more innocently back then. It was the seventies. A bunch of teenagers and a dog in a psychedelically-painted van wouldn't have caused any trouble in suburbia, right?

On their way to their next mystery...just waiting for the Mystery Machine to get a flat tire, run out of gas, or turn the wrong way down a Dead End. Zoinks!

  2. I love this! Possibly too much. I had that FP bus when I was a kid. Man, do I wish I still had it now. Excellent!

  3. Where's the post showing the batmobile?
    I would like to see it.

  4. Love this so much! I have been looking for a Scooby-Doo playset for my son and have heard bad reviews on the ones at Toys R Us continually breaking. Maybe I shall try making him the figures. Any tips for the first time trying something like this? (Ie. temp setting of stove, kind of sculpty?) Thanks muchly!
