I've wondered if there has ever been fan artwork out there depicting the Mystery Inc. gang as the Inside Out characters:
If so, the Mystery Inc. / Inside Out lineup might look something like this:
Freddy = Anger
Velma = Sadness, with a bit of Disgust (?); based on Velma's & Sadness's similar wardrobe styles
Daphne = a mixture of Disgust & Joy (?); again, based on the costume similarities
Shaggy & Scooby Doo = Fear
The Nostalgia Critic just reviewed the T&J Willy Wonka movie, and he brings up a lot of good points. While I have no desire to watch this myself, I do appreciate the occasional turns from the source to make it at least a little unique, namely actually showing Veruca fall into the furnace. I'm also surprised and a bit appreciative that they kept the line "Are the fires of He|| a-glowing?" during the infamous boat ride sequence (with Oompa Loompa Tuffy in place of Willy). I feel that word shouldn't be considered a curse word if it's used to refer to the fiery place.
But yeah, I agree that the T&J parts distract from the Wonka parts and vice versa, plus the off-model John K-esque animation style with the deranged expressions mostly doesn't work, except for the aforementioned boat ride where Tuffy utterly loses it.
I love "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" (probably my second all time favorite movie), and I like Tom and Jerry, but after seeing bits and pieces of the T&J "Wizard of Oz" (it was a review done by Bobsheaux on YouTube), I have no desire to see what they did with WWatCF. Especially now that I know Tuffy's in it. Ugh.
I have it on VHS. McDonald's had a promostion back in the day where you could buy it from them. My favorite song is "A Fair Is A Veritable Schmorgasboard-Orgasboard!" Just that whole little song then he gets drunk or just getting to full of all that stuff.
