Why This Version Rocks
- This version of Scrappy is a lot more mature, observant, and less annoying than his old counterpart.
- While he does still use his catchphrase, he uses it rarely, and not at all in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo.
- He has a lot more moments of being in action and being useful than the old version.
- While he does still have a desire to show how tough he is, he is no longer as arrogant about it than he used to be.
- He also became a lot more friendly and sensitive.
- His annoying constant tendency to try and pick fights with villains was downplayed, and he develops better common sense to when he should and should not backdown from a fight.
- There have been a lor of episodes where he manages to keep Scooby and Shaggy out of danger.
- He is one of the most bravest members of the gang.
- His voice performance is an improvement over his original voice. He also stops speaking in an unnecessary Brooklyn accent.
- Despite his redemption, he still does have a few annoying moments.
- His 1979-1980 version.
