The villains in the episode "The Horrible Herd' are called Skull Cattle, and not referred to as the "Horrible Herd". Their name has been confirmed by Tony Cervone, and they are called "Skull Cattle" throughout the episode continously; nearly seven times. The page for the villains of this episode should be changed to "Skull Cattle" and reverted from "Horrible Herd". ScoobyDooIsAmazing (talk) 05:44, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

They are called the "Horrible Herd" also, including once when the gang exclaims it in chorus. If you want an additional name as a redirect I would be fine with that. --RockSunner (talk) 20:03, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

That doesn't matter. How many times are they called the Horrible Herd? How many are they called Skull Cattle? Whatever the monsters are called in the episodes they appear in should justify their name, and not what appears in the episode titles. For example, the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo episode, "Mayhem of the Moving Mollusk", the monster is referred to as the 'Snail Monster', not the Moving Mollusk. Throughout the episode, it was called the Snail Monster. Another example is the "Scarebear" episode. The Scarebear is called 'Scarebear' (as it is in the episode title) in the episode and that justifies it's name. They are called the Horrible Herd twice, and Skull Cattle seven times. Daphne, Sheriff Stone, the deputy, Shaggy, Mr. E, the female farmer at the tractor meeting, and Professor Pericles, their creator, all called them 'Skull Cattle'. Tony Cervone even confirmed their name to me over Twitter. You can't argue with what the creators intended for their technical name to be. If it continues to stay as "Horrible Herd", the page will not be accurate, because they are called Skull Cattle. ScoobyDooIsAmazing (talk) 20:46, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I must say that "Moving Mollusk" was used as a name. In fact I believe the song even called it "Monster Mollusk". Monsters can have a variety of names given to them. Spooky Space Kook doesn't even get a proper name in his original appearance. We can only really go by the episode title. (Interestingly the SDMI writers chose their version to be called "Space Kook". Whether that's intentional or lack of attention I don't know). The main problem is, is they are actually called "Horrible Herd" and it ties in with the episode's name. If they didn't want people thinking that "Horrible Herd" wasn't it's name then they shouldn't have even used it at all within the episode. It's not as if there's not a justifiable reasoning for naming the page "Horrible Herd" and not just because that's the title of the episode. It's not really innacurate, it's just a difference of opinion. Also even if Professor Pericles, their creator, doesn't name them as such it doesn't make "Horrible Herd" any less of a name than all the other disguised villains who given names for them. - -Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) 21:10, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
