In the summer of 2013, The Shake Ups began performing original songs inspired by their favorite cartoons, and have since released a projects dedicated to Steven Universe, Voltron, and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The band’s newest album, Meddling Kids, features original tunes based on a variety of different series, both recent (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Star Vs. the Forces of Evil, Marvel Rising, Gravity Falls) and vintage (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, ThunderCats). Meddling Kids also serves as a celebration of 50 years of Scooby Doo, and the band took the opportunity to release their version of the show’s classic theme song.
