Zoinks! Mystery Machine crashes in to a house

Scooby Doo's famous van made an impromptu visit to a home in Minneapolis–Saint Paul on Friday morning.
Typically used by Fred, Daphne, Shaggy and the rest of the gang in their hunt for eccentric villains dressed up as ghosts and monsters, the distinctive green and blue 1960s panel van featured in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon classic has proven a popular build among custom van enthusiasts.

One such vehicle, which had been painted to look exactly like the Mystery Machine, ended up embedded in the side of a house on Friday after thieves stole the van and drove it in to a wall.

It isn't yet clear who was responsible for the incident, which occurred at around 3am in the morning, however St. Paul police have reported the arrest and subsequent release of two teenagers.

The van itself, which was badly damaged, is likely to be out of commission for quite some time.

Shaggy, a full grown man whose friends bribe him into doing dangerous things by feeding him dog food. I often think of all the things I did wrong in life and am I glad that I don't have to live his life.

Can't blame them for running away from Jason Voorhees.

Rooby snacks, rooby snacks. Kids, Scooby Doo was a completely different animal back in the day. Was actually good entertainment. Hanna Barbara. Just like Alpha Bits was the best cereal, until they changed the formula.

I love the Holy Hell out of that old cartoon. The crude animation of the original 1969 series was so charming.

It's just too hard to look at.BTW - Scooby Snacks are made by Snaussages and sold by Target. My dog gets hers daily. Now if she could only talk.

Another case happened in California, as reported by the L.A. Times. These Scooby Van drivers are a bit erratic. http://www.latimes.c...0307-story.html A woman driving a minivan painted to resemble "Scooby-Doo's" Mystery Machine evaded Northern California police in a high-speed pursuit Sunday. ... Although the official Scooby-Doo website notes that the Mystery Machine "is always ready to provide a quick getaway," Redding police were not amused.

That that is a Mystery.

Fred may have inhaled second hand smoke from Shaggy and Scooby's bong

Adult Swim has some clever cartoon programming, which hopefully bypasses the PC movement. Ima fan of Samurai Jack.
