NYDN - Jinkies! The long-running “Scooby Doo” cartoon is getting some negative attention for its newest movie storyline. ”Scooby Doo! Frankencreepy,” which was released direct to DVD on Tuesday, has some parents concerned for their kids over more than just a scary monster. The latest plot sees the famous crime-solving gang subject to each of their worst nightmares in the form of a curse by the Frankencreep monster. For Daphne, a “curse” means ballooning from her slender size 2 to a “size 8.” The bloated cartoon depiction of the beloved character’s appearance as a size 8 is what has some social media users up in arms. Many have noted that Daphne appears much bigger than what a size 8 woman would look like, but the larger issue is apparently that the Warner Bros. cartoon film chose to inflict a curse of fatness on a female character. ”It’s sad to think that my daughter can’t even watch a cartoon about a dog solving mysteries without negative body stereotypes being thrown in her face,” Tom Burns writes in a blog post for The Good Men Project. But the studio behind “Scooby Doo” issued a statement defending its storyline for “Frankencreep,” saying the point of Daphne’s transformation was to show that appearance doesn’t matter. ”The message is actually a much more positive one,” Warner Bros. said in astatement to The Huffington Post. ”While Daphne is at first upset by the sudden change, there is a touching moment where Fred points out that he didn’t even notice a change and that she always looks great to him … The loss of Daphne’s regular appearance is proven to be a superficial thing, and not what actually matters the most to her.” At the end of the movie, Velma points out that the curse didn’t take away “what means the most to each of them: their friendship,” Warner Bros. said, explaining that Daphne’s narcissism was the real issue. ”I actually have to defend the writers here because Daphne realized she was being superficial throughout that story arc,” one reviewer said on Amazon.
Few things here – 1) If you’re losing sleep over fat shaming on a straight-t0-DVD Scooby Doo release, you need to kill yourself. Find the nearest toaster, draw yourself a nice hot bath, and do a cannonball right up in that bitch. Because that means in all likelihood you’re a fat piece of shit, and you’re an uptight asshole.
2) People complaining that the way Fat Daphne is depicted is way larger than a Size 8:
You people out there really think anybody is sitting there measuring whether Fat Daphne is a size 8 or a size 10 or a size 12? Point is she’s fucking fat, and if you’re a size 8 you’re fat. We all know what happens if you’re a size 6. Size 8 is just that much worse. Nobody cares about her exact measurements and the inconsistency of the Scooby Doo animators. Bottom line is Daphne used to be a smoke and now she’s been cursed to become a fatso.
3) Lets cut the shit with this “Fred doesn’t care” nonsense – “Fred points out that he didn’t even notice a change and that she always looks great to him.” Yea, ok. Sure thing. Fred doesn’t care that he used to have the sexiest, dumbest, sluttiest member of the gang. Now he’s got a heifer with a fat curse. You think he’s ok with that? The only reason Fred tolerated Daphne’s dumb ass in the first place is because she looked like this:
Complete fucking sex bomb. Now you’re a Size 8. I bet Fred would rather jerk off into that handkerchief of his than fuck Fat Daphne.
4) That fucking dyke Velma can pipe down about Daphne’s narcissism. Hey Velma if I need to find out the square root of this apartment I’ll ask for you and your calculator. Otherwise shut the fuck up.
5) The thought that Daphne learned a lesson about being superficial is LAUGHABLE – No doubt in my mind Daphne turned bulimic to try to overcome this curse.
