** While there's not much "dress up as fake ghost" crime in the real life, we should also make note their real life equivalents, the private investigator often does run afoul with official police. Needless to say about paranormal investigators who like pi's sometimes do legally trespass and get into trouble over it. Minding of course either actually have some evidence to some more serious crime to offer. Most real life police wouldn't be as happy and accepting to a real life Scooby-gang, and is also a reason while many a detective fiction have some kind of official police foil for their detective to play off.




to:

** Well they are mystery solvers, doesn't mean they only want to solve one type of crime.




to:

** Depends how skeptical the people in the area are. Some are attracted to it, others aren't. In universe it seems the people who are attracted to it are the YouMeddlingKids or people personally affected by it. Everyone else gets out of dodge when the monster shows up.




to:

** Because even after multiple unmasks that isn't exactly a reason to think this one can't be the outlier? By later series they get a little more skeptical on certain cases but the series has shown real entities are also out there at times so to not really rule it out entirely.




to:

** While due to the fast and loose continuity it's not consistent, but multiple episodes and movies since the 1980s have done this. Where the Scooby gang in itself is clearly a known about entity to whoever they are arriving to help. And as of Frankencreepy there's enough people who hate them for their own social network, to say nothing of people who like them.




to:

** Originally the out of universe likely reason was with Scrappy the gang had six members and they were switching to seven minute shorts. Six characters plus the bad guy and whatever other characters are a lot to move around in seven minutes. So the others took the hike. When they brought the mystery back, Daphne was picked, as she's probably the third-liked character.


Added DiffLines:

** Because people can be friends even if some one else doesn't think it fits their expectations of who they should be hanging out with?

* How are the main characters friends? No one finds it odd for a preppy guy, a preppy girl, a food-obsessed hippie, and a bookworm to be friends for many years? Seems like the only thing that bring them together is solving mysteries. Outside ghost-hunting, their personalities are different. Okay, I can buy Fred and Daphne being friends and lovers, but Shaggy, Velma, and Scooby as their close friends?! Seriously, could you really see the cool guy, the rich popular girl, and 2 nerds being besties?

** Makes sense, since Daphne became "the rich one" in ''Main/APupNamedScoobyDoo''.

** They must have done something particularly good to them in ''APupNamedScoobyDoo'', since they apparently [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar induce orgasms]] there.

to:

** I think that's the case. Fred, Velma, and Daphne were originally more the straight man and women to the zanier Shaggy and Scooby, and so Shaggy and Scooby got more focus.


Added DiffLines:

** Shaggy and Scooby did sometimes find important things, even if that isn't their goal (e.g., "Spooky Space Kook", when they found the electronics system the ghost was using to haunt the airfield, or "A Clue for Scooby Doo", when Scooby found Captain Cutler's secret scuba storehouse). Furthermore, they may not have known what the clues meant, but at least sometimes they did recognize that it was a clue. Insofar as in-universe reasons, maybe the others didn't want to have to deal with trying to keep Shaggy and Scooby on task while simultaneously searching for clues, or maybe they figured things seemed to go okay the way they were doing it, so why switch it up?

* Why were Shaggy and Scooby usually send off by themselves to investigate? They never did anything useful, while Fred's team always found all the important clues. (I know why it was done from the writer's standpoint, but within the show's context if you're breaking into teams to search for clues, there should be at least one competent person on each team!)
