A 1969 animated cartoon, Scooby-Doo, has come out on Netflix. The show highlights a group of best friends solving mysteries of masked monsters and ghosts.

Scooby-Doo featured a group of young adults and a talking dog who drove around in a van called the Mystery Machine. The game consisted of Shaggy who was Scooby-Doo’s best friend, Fred, Velma, and Daphne. Together they made the Mystery Incorporated. Vanessa Gamez who watched Scooby-Doo from a young age says, “Shaggy is my favorite ebcause he has such a relaxing demeanor. He goes along with the flow and clearly has no worries in life”.

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy were often used as bait to lure the monsters and ghosts in a trap. They were constantly scared so the game always bribed them with Scooby Snax a tasty treat for dogs. Fred was always the one who organized in making the traps and Velma was the brain of the operation. Daphne was always the one who was underestimated with her intelligence and came up with good ideas. Gamez illustrates her favorite things about the Gang, “The Gang always worked together and showed team work making the friendship strong between all of them”.

The game was always in search of a new mystery to solve. Each case they always started with investigating people who are at the scene of a crime. Space next they will put together the clues they got from the witnesses. They would stake out places where they would suspect the monsters or ghosts to hide and in the end, they would capture who was ever causing a disturbance. Tara Myers who is watching Scooby-Doo on Netflix talks about one of her favorite monsters, “The vampire/ bat was hands down my favorite monster because he struck fear so much.”

Always being the person that watches Scooby-Doo Myers says, “I love watching Scooby-Doo because it fed my love for monsters and mystery at a young age.” Scooby-Doo was a great show for young kids illustrating friendship and hard work. It often allowed the love for Scooby-Doo to grow and show a true man’s best friend
