There were a lot of things that made Scooby Doo epic but here are the top 10 things we remember best.

It has been 47 years since we were introduced to a brave yet easily scared dog and his gang of meddling friends. We haven’t forgotten them for a moment since then. The first episode of Hanna-Barbera ’s Scooby Doo,a Great Dane who could speak human tongue, was released on September 13, 1969, and with him came a long list of endearing cartoon characters in our life: Scooby Doo’s skinny best friend, Shaggy; the nerdy, Velma; the hottie, Daphne; and the leader, Fred were the first ghostbusters this world ever knew.

There were a lot of things that made the show epic but here are the top 10 things we remember best.

1. The Mystery Machine:

The kids would be at a new haunted mansion in every new episode but what never changed was the hippie-est van in the world: The Mystery Machine. It was their home away from home and a dependable friend every time they had to run away from evil monsters.

2. Let’s split up!

Sure Fred, the best thing you could do in a haunted house is split up.

3. Scrappy Doo

Basically, a lesson in why it is a bad idea to give kids sugar.

4. Jinkies!

Are you still saying it?

5. Binging real hard

Shaggy and Scooby invented the concept of binge-fests.

6. If it wasn’t for these meddling kids...

...so many villains would’ve gotten away with it.

7. The cameos

Sure Batman was also a detective but this was quite a stretch.

8. Where are my glasses!

Well, damn Velma! Not again! Considering the rate at which she kept losing them, she should’ve bought lenses a long time ago.

9. The impeccable logic

These gifs speak for themselves.

10. The theme song

And in Hindi for all you desi, cable-TV subscribers.
