About Scooby Doo
Dogs are not often cowardly and people who are afraid of ghosts, do not usually hunt them down, yet Shaggy and Scooby Doo seem to defy those simple logics. Scooby Doo is a cartoon TV show that features a gang of teenagers and their dog Scooby Doo. They pride themselves on solving mysteries even when they were not asked or invited to. It is ironic that the show takes the name of the dog, given that he is the most cowardly of the group and would rather sit and eat all day with Shaggy than to confront any ghosts or solve any mysteries. Shaggy is one of the teenagers in the group who is equally cowardice and glutinous as his canine friend, but the gang would not be complete without them. After solving each mystery and unmasking the "ghost" or "monster,” the perpetrator of each episode always has the same thing to say, "I would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for you meddling kids and your dog too." Why don't they simply give up when Scooby and the gang shows up. The fact that everyone says the same thing at the end means that the gang solves most mysteries. Another well-known cliché in the Scooby Doo episodes is the fact that the ghosts/monsters are never really ghosts or monsters. They are always regular human beings dressed up in masks or remotely operated machines. Either way, Shaggy and Scooby are always scared stiff at the first sight of a white sheet. Even the rest of the gang takes off running before stopping to scrutinize the so-called ghost. Yet ironically, the perpetrators are often captured due to some accidental mishap in the trap caused by Shaggy and/or Scooby.
