Movie Poster – Byron Wilkins of 1977 the Comic

Byron Wilkins Scooby Doo Poster for

Today’s movie poster is actually from a TV show (unless you count the horrible live action movie) but well within the rules.  W. Byron Wilkins was one of the first to answer my last guest cartoon call back in the summer of ’09 and thankfully jumped back on the bandwagon again this year.

1977 is a cartoon about four friends in the late 70’s trying to make it big as a Rock and Roll band.  Drinking, pot, sex, etc were all the rage in the 70’s (so I hear since I wasn’t old enough) and Byron captures the time well.  Probably because he lived through it.

All I know is that if Velma on Scooby Doo looked like that, I might have watched that show a few  more years.

Check in on Tuesday from a guest cartoon from Carlo of Callous comics

    There were SOOOO many variations of Scooby Do over the years it’s hard to keep track of them all. They even had “made for TV movies” of the show on Cartoon Network not that many years back, just before the Live Action stuff came out (and I did not like them except that they made Scrappy Do a bad guy and blew him up… Yay!)

    Being an old fart, I did not realize it was suppose to be a full blown poster, but that pose is a very popular one of the Scooby gang, so I’m close.

    I guess I should read instructions, eh? 🙂

      How did I miss that?

    Is your version of Daphne single? I’m in love bro 🙂

    Cool image

  4. Man, almost nothing sinks me back to the 70s faster than Scooby Doo. Byron, I suddenly want to see your version of it! I want to know what’s in those Scooby Snacks, too.

    • Byron says:

      Can you say “special brownies”? Yeah, no wonder Scooby can talk. Who knows what Shaggy is putting in those dog treats.

    Will Ebert and Roper sue me for saying this deserves “two thumbs up”?!?

  6. Tony says:

    I like those Scooby Chicks

  7. Niiiiiiice! Very nice, indeed! 🙂

  8. Friggin Loon says:

    Is it me or does Velma look like Sarah Palin?

  9. DadaHyena says:

    That’s a super hot Velma!

    …but who smokes more pot: the 1977 cast or the Scooby Doo crew?

    • Byron says:

      Well, if they’re *all* talking to a dog, AND he’s talking back, I’d have to say it was the Scooby Doo gang. Now that’s some good smokin’ indeed!

  10. George says:

    Great job, Byron! I love your Velma. 🙂

    • Byron says:

      Thanks, George! Robyn as Velma was a perfect match up. Everyone always goes for the “obvious” hot chick and it’s those silent, nerdy ones wearing the glasses that will knock your socks off (speaking from personal 70s experiences on that one).


  11. I do not remember the girls being so well endowed. Even the nerdy one looks like she’d take you for a ride!

    • Byron says:

      I had to sex up Scooby Doo’s women… that’s my job! I think we’d all watch THIS version of the cartoon…

  12. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Your artwork is superb Byron. You are very talented for an old…er mature dude.

  13. WriterDood says:

    It’s funny, I used to work with a lady who was so into Scooby Doo she had Scooby tattooed on her arm. No that’s a fan!

  14. Roland says:

    Very nicely done. You captured the Scooby Doo crew while still keeping your characters shine through… Awesome

  15. David says:

    That’s awesome! Byron, your style lends itself really well to Scooby Doo. Very cool.

  16. she IS nipping quite a bit in this poster.

    i dig it though.

    i saw a scooby doo mystery theater put on by some college kids in chicago once, it made my life.
