Scooby-Doo Skeptics

So, I was watching Scooby-Doo the other day. I truly hate that show, but I wanted some background noise and it was the best option. I may have found something to like about it though. They're skeptics! Well at least Fred, Daphne, and Velma are. Shaggy and Scooby are a bit more credulous.

Shaggy and Scooby tend to exclaim "Ghost!" at the slightest unexplained event. The rest of the gang is inclined to get to the bottom of it though. They investigate and figure out the real cause. They unmask the villain and present their evidence.

What an excellent lesson for children. Teach the kids how to question the unexplained. Show them that there is always a rational explanation.

One of these days we're going to hear the Pope say, "...and we would have gotten away with it too! If it wasn't for you meddling kids!"
