This should be number 1 because its animation is garbage and so is everything else about it.
Its like they pieced a cartoon together by fishing out pointless crap in a dumpster. - aarond90

A DISGRACE TO THE SCOOBY DOO FRANCHISE AND HANNA BARBERA IN GENERAL! But it is not nearly as bad as the horror known as CLUE CLUB! Dotty is the only good character in Clue Club. This show on the other hand, ruined everyone! Mystery Solvers State Club Finals is the only episode I like but the ending ruined it for me since I am a Funky Phantom fan.

I'd say this kind of ruined Scooby-doo for me.
My favorite character is Shaggy but I also like Fred.

You know what I hate about this show? Not just the fact that it rips off Phineas and Ferb, but how it's the reason that Canadian cartoons are always treated like they are the plague when they haven't seen enough of them all.

They say Ed, Edd n' Eddy and Total Drama were the only good Canadian cartoons when they've only seen the most infamous Canadian cartoons first when hell, I can think of 1000 good Canadian cartoons that weren't just EEnE and TD.

Totally Spies!
Martin Mystery
Storm Hawks

Johnny Test (S1)
Viva Pinata
Monster Buster Club
