The New Shmoo: Ted Turner strikes again
Man, that New Shmoo freaks me out. Who comes up with this sh...oe leather? It's the same structure as Scooby-Doo, without the 'cooby-D'. The main characters produce a comic book at their ... headquarters. Self-employed, apparently, and when the muse strikes them they venture out into the world for inspiration. The master, Frank Welker does the voice of this Shmoo creature, sort of a lone version of those twin blobs from that other Hanna-Barbera show which I can't recall the name of right now, but with an awkward teenage mustache. (Wasn't sure where to place the mustache part in the sentence,,,...) When you get right down to it, I'm surprised the Religious Right hasn't brought a hammer down harder on some of these Hanna Barbera shows. Some of 'em are downright satanic!
