''New Girl'' to take us on a first date: How do Jess and Nick rate vs. other all-time shipper faves?
Scooby Doo (1969-present)
Forget the Freddie Prinze Jr./Sarah Michelle Gellar versions we got in those two live-action Scooby movies the tension between their cartoon forebears was always much more animated. In adventure after adventure, they played each other hot and cold. Fred would trick Daphne into thinking there was a ghost, winking to the audience when she ran into his arms. Daphne, for her part, would tease Fred by undoing her green scarf...then quickly re-tying it, also winking at the audience. It's the winking that made Scooby Doo so subversively sexy.
Hit it or quit it? Forgetting for a minute the fact that it's altogether unhealthy to be thinking about the romantic lives of animated characters on a 40-year-old children's show...hit it.
