SPOILERS AHEAD! Please watch today’s scene first! :D

Scrufflebeck has gotten a little bigger! Nick thinks that a name change is in order! What do you think? Does this new form deserve a new monicker? Send me your name suggestions via e-mail, the forums, Twitter, Facebook, the comments, etc. and I’ll pick my favourite 5 and then we’ll vote! I’ll also add a sixth option of NOT renaming Scrufflebeck :D Thanks!

I’ve also put up a new vote incentive! Please vote to check out the sketch I worked on for the new Scrufflebeck. :D

Enjoy Scene 23 – “Doppelganger”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Keep playing BlockHopper beta and please keep sending us feedback! Thanks for playing! :D

Have a great weekend! :D

Think we should keep the same name for laughs – kinda like calling a three-headed dog “Fluffy”

I think scruffleeck should remain just scrufflebeck,because thats like naming a dog that lost his legs “Stumps” though his original name was “buddy”.

I think Joe should give him the new name.After all, Joe bought Scrufflebeck.Well, actually Bernie bought it, but that is not the point.

So if Scrufflebeck was attacked by a big ugly creature… he would mimic it too?

well, obviously it MUST stay scrufflebeck.
hes even more scrufflebeck than he was scrufflebeck before when he was scrufflebeck.
so if you scrufflebeck me i’ll be scrufflebeck.

I say keep the name Scrufflebeck.

HOWEVER.

We take advantage of the opportunity and have Joe dub him Powerpaw. As he is both Joe and Powerfist, so shall Scruffles be Powerpaw!

Don’t change his name, it’s already good.

I say he should keep his name. But if he doesn’t, then it should be Joe who renames him. Since it’s Joe’s dog/plant, not Nick’s.

Still go with Scrufflebeck.

I’m not trying to be rude or anything, but I do think that you want to let readers decide about your story a bit too much. Sure, choosing a name from time to time is a nice touch, but come on – a decision to make after almost every comic? I’m starting to find it amusing. Still – decent story, nonetheless.

If he get’s a new name, it should be something like Ridgebeck or something else that involves an dog breed name, because scruffle is an dog with an unlikely combination of parentage.

New Scrufflebeck didn’t bark. Snif. :'( I liked this cute little sound. Well, it will be lower now.

I vote for Scrufflebeck to keep his name, it’s cool.

I believe that Scrufflebeck should remain Scrufflebeck, and if there is a change it should probably be something slight, like adding a letter or switching a letter or two around, something like that.

Having said that, the Doctor character is still not very likable. I agree with those who say that Joe should rename Scrufflebeck, or at least someone the audience likes more.
If Scruffle’s name changes at all, that is.

Maybe “Scufflebeck”?
I dunno, that sounds kind of silly. I like that Powerpaw idea that Delta-Pangea came up with though.

How did a plant-dog mimic a wolf and ends up with a lion’s mane and a bear’s face?
OH, well! Let’s see, name propositions:
*Fang
*Slasherbeck
*Forrest
*Bushiegrowl
—Nick-> Oh, What the Heck! We have no time to be thinking of names! We have to get moving! Let’s go Scrufflebeck! Onward to machine City!!!

Scrufflesaur. But dont make Nick do it, get Joe to do it. Cause its Joe’s dog. Make Joe wake up and the 2 of them go to save Nick, and then Joe renames Scrufflebeck.

Keep the Scruffle, but change beck to bark, or bite, or something like that.

Scrufflebeak is perfectly good, but I also agree with the earlier suggestions of Powerpaw. The old Scrufflebeck was perfectly fine, though: it’s nice to have a cute animal mascot. Even if the animal is a plant and not an animal. Also, revive Joe already. We want our idiot protagonist back already!!

Noo! Don’t change his name! He shall always be Scrufflebeck in my eyes! Maybe Powerpaw or Ridgebeck…but somehow Scrufflebeck should always stay in the comic.

Well, if it’s that idiot that’s naming him, I’m hoping for idiotic names like:
GEO-HOUND!
GEOWULF!
GREEN MAWLER!
…and the like XD.
