* AndThatsTerrible: The VerySpecialEpisode about drugs ''repeatedly'' reminded the audience at home that drugs were very, very bad. Every time Velma was bringing up the subject, she'd take a long pause and then virtually spit the word out in disgust ("He was selling...DRUGS!"); similarly, Scooby would react with revulsion whenever the word was spoken.


Added DiffLines:

** Played with in another episode, when the gang is planning on creating a movie. Freddy suggests that they make a film about them solving a mystery, and the gang congratulates him on having a good idea. This is apparently so rare that the show is "interrupted" by a special news bulletin featuring an announcer shouting "FREDDY HAD A GOOD IDEA! IT'S A MIRACLE!"


Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyDidIt: A variation in "For Letter or Worse." While only one person--[[spoiler: namely, Prestina]]-- is the culprit, it turns out that [[spoiler: the majority of the suspects the gang met ''were'' Prestina in various disguises.]]

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Only in the episode "Night of the Boogie Biker" is Freddy right about bully Red Herring being the monster.



** Daphne's parents "count money" on Tuesday nights, which lasts until the next day.

to:

** Daphne's parents "count money" on talk about "Tuesday nights" as if they're special nights to be intimate with each other. When asked why they reference Tuesday nights, nights with a seductive tone, Daphne says Tuesdays are actually for counting money, which usually lasts until the next day.Saturday.



* RealAfterAll: The cast actually ''does'' find a real ghost at one point, though it's a harmless friendly ghost named Mr Boo. The VillainOfTheWeek's plan would result in the house he haunts to be demolished, which would mean he would cease to exist, so the cast end up having to help him.
* RedHerring: Short of using an actual red fish, you just can't get more literal than this: Red Herring was the name of an actual character, a local bully. {{Once an Episode}}, Freddy would accuse him of being the culprit; the accusation always came out of nowhere, with zero evidence to support it. Fred's logic was that Red was a jerk, and thus must be the villain. Red would always respond with an airtight alibi, much to Freddy's chagrin.

More recently, the concept of revisiting the cast in their earlier years appeared in the movie ''Film/ScoobyDooTheMysteryBegins'' (meant to be a prequel to the original ''Scooby-Doo'' live action movie series) and the video game ''Scooby-Doo: First Frights''. The movie set them as meeting in high school while the video game had them meet in elementary school.

* AdaptationExpansion: This show is the first to give us Doo Manor and that it is to be Scooby's upon adulthood. In the franchise's Archie comic, this is expanded up Doo Manor, being Spooky Doo's and is left to Scooby on a part of him knowing his nephew to be a coward. This also explains why during Scooby's puppyhood Dada Doo and Uncle Horton would both be living at their brother's home, until the rightful heir came of age.

* {{Antidisestablishmentarianism}}: In "For Letter or Worse", The first word the contestants playing the titular game show is "Antidisestablishmentarianism". The Brainy Bunch figures it out as soon as the host informs the contestants it's the longest word.
* ArkhamsRazor: Used almost every episode during TheSummation, every suspect is listed... and the one character who isn't listed for whatever reason (too unlikely, had an alibi, or the writers simply didn't feel like including him) is invariably the culprit.

* TheCameo: WesternAnimation/YogiBear and Ranger Smith appear in "The Story Stick". Yogi notably is portrayed as [[BearsAreBadNews much more of a vicious wild animal]] than his regular self, scaring the villain off in one scene, and would be almost unrecognizable were it for the fact that he still has his trademark hat and tie on.

** It was inverted in another episode. The gang challenges Fred to go without accusing Red Herring of any crimes for twenty-four hours, just before a motorcycle is stolen. It turns out that this was the one time Red ''did'' do it (he was secretly adding a sidecar to the bike as a present). Fred has an ''epic'' HeroicBSOD at the news.

* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: If only because Daphne's status as a rich girl is played for all it's worth. Apart from Velma, she usually plays the OnlySaneMan role (especially with regards to Fred).

* {{Expy}}: Daphne in this series looks a lot like Holly from ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s'', another cartoon by Hanna-Barbera.
