In all the years that I've been watching the various iterations of Scooby-Doo, I've never really paid any attention to the mystery formula of the show. Weird, huh? It's the same setup in every episode. You meet a few characters, a few red herring clues are revealed pointing to the wrong people and then the ghost/monster is ultimately unmasked, exposing the least likely suspect. Same thing every time. But I never watched the show trying to figure out who the villain was. I guess I liked it for the chase scenes, lame slapstick and the laugh track.
Now that Jameson is into the old episodes, I'm getting to revisit the show. Watching them again with him is like having some sort of epiphany. Apparently I'm easily fascinated. Or I've had one too many Scooby Snacks.
