Trivia

  • Scooby-Doo appears at times in Cartoon Network's The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy as a character who is described as being on the "wrong show." He has spoken little, some of his lines being, "What am I doin' here, man? I'm just a stinkin' dog!", and "[Mandy] made fun of the way I talk. I mean look at me! I'm a stinkin' dog!"
  • The second-season episode of The Venture Bros. entitled ¡Viva los Muertos! features the entire Scooby-Doo cast re-imagined as famous serial killers and racidals. Scooby's analogue, "Groovy", is possessed by a demon and talks only to "Sonny", Shaggy's double, enticing him to commit murder. The pairing is a parody of David Berkowitz, the "Son of Sam", who claimed that his neighbor's dog Harvey was a "high demon" who commanded Berkowitz to kill.
