Zoinks, Scooby, Tibbetts Is Your Guy

September 16, 1998|MIKE BRESNAHAN

Scooby, Scooby-Doo, where are you?

Probably at Blake Tibbetts' house.

Tibbetts, a Crespi High running back, has collected images of the cartoon character for as long as he can recall.

His Scooby-Doo paraphernalia includes stuffed animals, mugs, fast-food restaurant toys, action figures, and even a temporary tattoo.

He also sleeps with Scooby--his bed sheets and comforter have the mutt's mug on them.

"Any kind of thing of his I see, I try to get," said Tibbetts, a senior. "And everyone tries to get his stuff for me."

Tibbetts, whose license plate is "1 Scooby," wears a Scooby-Doo T-shirt under his shoulder pads during football games.

And he carries his money around in a Scooby-Doo wallet.

But don't offer any Scrappy-Doo collectibles to Tibbetts.

"He kind of ruined [the TV show] for me," Tibbetts said. "I don't have anything to do with him."
