Terrific TV Toys: Part 3 of the Scooby plush!

Billie Rae Bates of BRBTV owns a lot of Scooby-Doo plush, and the Terrific TV Toys web series has given you a gander at that amazing collection, which has been provided almost totally from a certain Mysterious Claw-Game Avenger Who Shall Remain Nameless, who is quite skilled at rescuing plush from grocery stores, bowling alleys, restaurants, you name it.

Stay tuned, because next week is a special Christmas episode of Terrific TV Toys, and it will be posted on a very special anniversary!
