Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • The episode where Freddy couldn't blame Red Herring for a crime rubbed me the wrong way. Color me biased, but I felt that the rest of the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency were just pricks because, well, it was the first and only time that Red was guilty of a crime and it was Freddy's only chance to be right for once and he wasted it all because of a stupid bet.
  • I only saw a few episodes of this show as a kid, but there was one episode that particularly stuck in my head... In an anti-drug episode there's this guy who was using dolphins to smuggle drugs or something. Every time drugs were brought up in the episode, one of the characters would go "Eeeew! Drugs!". I know it's a kid show, but who behaves that way? What child, even one who believes Drugs Are Bad, has such disgust for illegal substances that simply hearing the word "drugs" revolts them? Did their school invite a speaker from the D.A.R.E program and the characters took the message too seriously? I WANNA KNOW!
    • According to Wikipedia's list of episodes, there was no anti-drug episode.
      • In the episode titled "Scooby Dude", the Monster of the Day was running a drug smuggling program.
  • This is just something I found odd. Stinkweed was supposed to smell so bad that no one could stand being even close to him. This is made a big deal of when he walks into stores and that's enough to clear everyone out, and Scooby does comment on it later on. However, it's never brought up again. Why make a monster named Stinkweed that's main schick is to smell unbearable horrid and not focus on it at all? Particularly when the main hero is a dog whose nose is their main way to track the bad guys, which could've been a plot point. This just bugs me a tiny bit.
    • Did your network cut the part in which Scooby's nose lead to the gang seeing Stinkweed playing with O'Grady's shoes?
      • No, but the point was that Scooby shouldn't even have been able to stand being able to smell him, at least that's how the guy was set up.
