I was watching the latest episode of Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated with my daughter last week and could not fail to spot this gratuitous reference to Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. (Something I never thought I’d see).
What was really interesting was that this was a 20 second vignette that had nothing to do with the regular mask-wearing, kid-meddling shenanigans. Once it was over we returned back to the regular plot with no further mention. Since it’s unlikely that the target demographic for Scooby Doo has ever seen a Hellraiser movie this one was purely for the parents watching…
After opening the door, the unseen caller starts to say “Oh such sights…” only to have the door slammed in his face and the sheriff mutter “Weirdo!”
Nice touch. More please!
