Jinkies!- A Scooby-Doo Nail Art Tribute


                                     
For as long as I can remember, I've had trouble staying asleep the whole night. Sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night for a drink of water and then I would be awake to watch the sunrise. To lull myself back to sleep, I would watch TV.  As a child of the 90's I had to suffer through watching the TV scroll through endless TV listings.

During the time of my insomnia, I was heartbroken by that fact that at that time, there weren't any 24 cartoon channels. Imagine my surprise after I discovered that TNT played animated classics after hours. The first cartoon that I had ever seen on TNT was Scooby Doo, Where Are You! I had never seen any program like Scooby Doo before and I have to say I was hooked.

I laughed at Scooby and Shaggy's antics. I wondered why Fred would suggest that the groups split up to look for clues and that he and Daphne would always pair up.

 I also wondered why Velma wasn't the leader of the group when she was clearly capable.

Scooby-Doo is a cartoon franchise that debuted as part of the Hanna-Barbera Saturday Morning Cartoon series. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! debuted in 1969 about a group of teenagers along with their Great Dane driving in a van looking for supernatural crimes and legends to solve. The original show ran on CBS from 1969-1975.

The Scooby-Doo franchise has enjoyed many reincarnations through several decades with the main characters retaining some of their key traits while others such as Daphne was reimagined from a danger-prone prop to a skilled martial artist who contributed more to her team. I appreciated the funky and very 80's theme song of the reboot of Scooby and the gang in The New Scooby Mysteries.

                                       
The early 90's kid version of the game, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo was one of my favorites on Cartoon Network.

I also really appreciated the 2002 classic Live-Action film Scooby Doo. How cute is it that 90's icons, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar played Freddie and Daphne (and then got married!).


Please enjoy this nail art tribute to a timeless series. Let me know if you would like to see more animated classics as manicures.
