Things Only Adults Notice In Scooby-Doo

Kids love Scooby-Doo, but there’s a lot of questionable aspects to the mystery series that they might not catch until after they’ve grown up. Here’s the most suspect stuff in Scooby-Doo shows that only grown-ups pick up on.

Scooby-Doo is so familiar that we all tend to overlook its central conceit: one of the main characters is a talking dog. But even more unbelievable than a Great Dane who speaks and experiences human emotions are the reactions of the people around him.

Shaggy, Fred, Velma, Daphne, and the various criminals they bust are never impressed or freaked out by Scooby. Scooby’s human-like intelligence and ability to speak should probably make him a marvel of nature, science, or both. But everybody converses with Scooby like it’s the most normal thing in the world. Keep watching the video to see the things only adults notice in Scooby-Doo.
