New Sensations presents the Scooby Doo porn parody.

About That ‘Scooby-Doo’ Porn Parody . . .

I miss porn parodies.

Sure, they still exist. Every year, a few major porn spoofs appear. But it’s nothing like the sea of IP that crowded the new release lists when I started at DVD Empire well over a decade ago. One of the very first blogs I ever wrote was about Vivid’s take-off of TV’s 24. For porn bloggers like me and my colleagues, it always made life easier when a porn movie leveraged a well-known mainstream property.

Some popular movies are obvious material for a porn incarnation. Properties like Pirates, Snow White, Star Trek, and Game of Thrones come to mind.

Scooby Doo is less obvious. It’s a cartoon about a lovable, mystery-solving Great Dane with a speech disorder called rhotic replacement. (No, really!) He and four youthful, hippie-ish pals (Daphne, Velma, Fred, and Shaggy) roam the countryside looking for new adventures.

According to TV executive Fred Silverman, the series was originally created as a tonic for violent cartoon content, so it’s ironic it would one day inspire a thoroughly adult adaptation. “I thought they were joking,” star Bree Olson admitted when New Sensations came calling about a porn adaptation of the chuckly 1970s cartoon. Yet, against all odds, New Sensations’ Scooby Doo: A XXX Parody (2011) is the second most popular porn parody ever on Adult Empire.

Yes, that’s right. The only movie to outrank it is Digital Playground’s iconic Pirates, and it outpaces such faves as Star Wars XXX.

I think this calls for a rewind.

For one thing, the original show isn’t as innocent as it seems. There’s a surprisingly robust range of literature exploring Scooby-Doo’s subtler shadings. Some interpret the show’s psychedelic aspects as a metaphor for drug experiences. Speculation has often been rife about the orientation of the characters, from Velma to Scooby himself, who is at the center of a fascinating queer-studies reading of Scooby by writer Luke Cazeaux.

For director Eddie Powell, there was always a sexual subtext to the original, perhaps not even that deeply hidden. “Part of growing up was the never-ending debate regarding who would hook up first, Fred and Daphne, or Velma and Shaggy. The Scooby cartoons always had a ton of sexual friction within the Gang. Well, in our parody of Scooby-Doo, we finally solve the mystery, but it might not be what people expect,” he told AVN when the movie wrapped in November 2010.

So maybe a Scooby porn spoof wasn’t such a bizarre idea, after all.

Powell tackled the Scooby project at a time when both he and New Sensations were riding high. Within just a few months, the director/studio combo would release the popular romance Dear Abby, the riotous Anchorman spoof as well as Scooby-Doo XXX. Scooby scored the cover of Swank Magazine, a now-defunct porn glossy, at a time when magazine covers still acted as a cultural barometer.

Interestingly, Scooby is missing from not only the movie’s own cover but the project itself. In its cleverest screenwriting ploy, the movie leaves its title character out of the plot almost entirely. The story centers on the mystery of Scooby’s disappearance, which occurs while Shaggy is hooking up with Lily LaBeau at a costume party. (In true Scooby fashion, the plot presents the ultimate culprit in a throwaway appearance when Shaggy flashes back to the party.) Thus the four human protagonists are free for Scooby-style porn adventure without the technically challenging presence of Scooby himself.

This means, of course, that the movie’s success hinges entirely on the four leads. “The people who deserve the most recognition for the film’s success would be the cast. I grew up watching Scooby Doo and casting people that truly embodied the characters was essential,” Powell said.

Thankfully, the casting is spot-on, with Chad Alva leading the way as Shaggy, right down to the screechy, nervous vocal characterization. Bobbi Starr nails the intelligence and endearing awkwardness of Velma, while Bree Olson capably projects the bubbly, air-headed charms of Daphne. (A running gag is that Daphne is slow to comprehend exactly how a woman really gets pregnant.) “Filming Scooby-Doo: A XXX Parody was one of those experiences I will never forget,” Olson said of the shoot. Rounding out the main cast is Michael Vegas, shorn of his usual curly locks, as a particularly handsome Fred Jones. It’s unsurprising that the movie’s sex scenes are almost entirely hookups between the main characters, climaxing in sweetly sexy foursome with all of them.

The appeal of the movie goes beyond its cast, particularly in production touches that have been increasingly rare in the post-pandemic, indie-film atmosphere of cam content. The Mystery Machine, famous as the preferred transportation of our mystery-loving heroes, has been lovingly re-created.

The protagonists roam around an authentic 130-year-old mansion that perfectly evokes the gee-whiz mystery of the original series. There’s a surprisingly long comedic sequence of Scoob’s supposed kidnapper chasing the signature foursome through a series of interconnecting mansion rooms. The music has the perfect tinny, “tracked-in” feel of so much 1970s TV content.

Like its inspiration, Scooby XXX’s mysteries tease supernatural explanations while ending with decidedly earthbound solutions. There’s nothing paranormal about Evan Stone, who – spoiler alert — is unmasked as the devious evil-doer. (Well, on second thought . . . ) The delicious twist in the porn version, of course, is that it’s carnal pleasures that keep the characters, and the audience, squarely in the realm of reality.

When Velma hears Shaggy relating a hot and heavy story about his party hookup, she can barely contain her arousal. Later, she and Daphne use their sexual charisma to distract the movie’s villain at a critical moment. Sexual desire is what gets our characters in trouble, but it’s also what anchors them and ultimately keeps them alive. “Why didn’t we do this a long time ago?” says Shaggy after he, Velma, Fred, and Daphne finally have sex.

You’ll be asking yourself the same question after you finally watch the Scooby spoof.
