Snoopy, Droopy, Scooby, Blue and Astro. Who is the one in the orange hat?

Cheers justzo, you've almost got them all. The one in the orange hat is "Odie," Garfield's nemesis.

Awesome, really fun colors too. :^)

I like that Droopy is the one cheating. Never underestimate Droopy.

Really digging the colors. I love how I can see the smoke in your art and know immediately that it's you. Great work.

Great design.

The nerd in me wishes you had Scooby Dum & his magnifying glass looking at Blue's Clues. Dum dum Dum DUM!

Scooby Doo was starting to really stink by the time they introduced Scooby Dum (don't get me started on how annoying Scrappy Doo was) but the way he talked cracked me up so much!

Scrappy Doo ruined my childhood.

In much the same way Jar Jar Binks ruined my adulthood.


Nothing follows.

Thanks for the support everyone!

cheers jcflman, glad you like it!

@thatrobert and taternuggets- yeah the original Scooby was the best. Scrappy doo was slightly annoying.

Awesome, this is along the lines of something that I was talking about in the prederby thread. Wish I had the talent to make it work, but glad to see some one with said talent pull it off.

This is awesome! Odie was always a favorite character of mine. Got my vote, and if it prints I'll buy without hesitation.

I think it is funny that Blue is the only one smoking for a couple of different reasons.

  • Blue is the youngest character of this bunch as far as date of creation and target audience.
  • Blue is the only girl of the group (yes, Blue is a girl. And if that isn't enough proof, I was visiting my brother's once while the kids were watching it and Blue was wearing a tutu.)
  • She also appears to be winning.

sometimes i like to put on the cape and scream like a monkey.

Cheers wisesage, I didn't even realize "Blue" was a girl. It adds even more to the joke.

Somebody help me understand why this hasn't been rejected for copyright reasons, I'm new to this kind of thing. Is this considered a parody, is that why?

Yes, it is a parody. Recreating the 'Dogs Playing Poker' scene using cartoon dogs meets the criteria on multiple levels. Add in that none of the dogs are duplicates of the copyrighted characters and there's another layer.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Don't forget that the original host of Blues Clues was arrested for drug use. Which adds more to the joke.
