Scooby Doo Essay

753 words - 3 pages

Scooby Doo, the Greatest Detective of All Time Hey Scooby, Where are you? Scooby Doo was probably the greatest crime solver of all time. No, he was not as smart as Sherlock Holmes or as brave. Actually he was kind of a coward. No matter what, he always solved the crime and did it in thirty minutes or less. The show starred a talking dog named Scooby Doo. Each episode was the same. Scooby and his teenage friends, (Fred, Velma, Daphne, and Shaggy) would be traveling in their van, the "Mystery Machine", and it would break down or run out of gas. It always broke down in a town that was haunted by ghosts or monsters. Of course there were no ghosts or monsters, but villains trying to scare the towns people for some kind of treasure. This is where the amazing Scooby Doo came in, as he always solved the crime. Some people may believe that Velma was the true detective of the gang, because she always pieced the clues together at the end. She probably was, but it takes a true genius to "accidentally" stumble upon clues and catch the bad guys. What I'm saying is that Scooby is the real detective in the series. Lets look at the facts that support my assumption. First there is Fred who is the supposed leader of the gang. He is the one driving the van every time it breaks down or runs out of gas. It's bad enough the van isn't running, but to make things worse he manages to break down where there happens to be ghosts or monsters haunting the local town. Now that the gang is there, they have to solve the mystery. So, the fearless leader comes up with a plan that never works the way it's supposed too. Of course Scooby bails him out and foils the caper. The point is, Fred is more hurtful than helpful. He is to blame for getting them into all these messes that Scooby has to get them out of. Do you really want someone who can't maintain a vehicle or read a gas gauge as your leader? ...
