Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

SCOOBY DOO GANG ACTUALLY KIDS

I STAND CORRECTED

  • Print

The bad guys always called them meddling kids, but I always thought of the Scooby Doo gang as young adults.

It was my fault we entered this silly discussion this morning on Live at Daybreak. We played some goofy disco sounding music on the way in from a break. That caused me to flash on the old scenes in Scooby Doo where, for whatever reason, the gang was on the beach dancing around a fire with the boom box.

Maybe it was because I was really young when I watched, but I just assumed the Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy were all adults. How else were they driving around aimlessly without parental supervision?

Turns out Koplien was right. He said they were teenagers, and indeed my research seems to corroborate that. According to the unofficial, official fan website of Scooby Doo, Fred was the oldest at 17. Daphne, Velma, and Shaggy were all 16 years old.

Those kids had some cool parents.
