TheNewTens take on the ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' franchise, which premiered July 12, 2010.
This series offered a fresh take on the franchise that could be best described as a cross between ''Scooby-Doo'' and a bizarre meta-parody of ''Scooby-Doo''. Aimed at an older audience than usual, ''Mystery Incorporated'' was prone to LampshadeHanging and a more ironic, dark sense of humor: poking fun at not only the ''Scooby-Doo'' franchise and other characters from the Creator/HannaBarbera library, but also other works of horror fiction, covering a wide range of film, TV and literature [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]]. The series also carried a [[DarkerAndEdgier scarier and more violent]] tone compared to previous shows.
After Scooby and friends solve many mysteries around their home of Crystal Cove[[note]]There is an actual Crystal Cove in California, about 40 miles south of Los Angeles along the coast on the Pacific Highway. Whether or not the show's locale is based on it is not clear.[[/note]], the town decides it's had enough of them debunking prospective tourist attractions and cracks down on Mystery Inc.'s mystery solving. But no one, not overbearing parents, nor an [[ObstructiveBureaucrat obnoxiously obstructive sheriff]], nor [[SuitWithVestedInterests a mayor who's more interested in tourism than solving crimes]] (and is ''also'' an overbearing parent), nor the mysterious Mr. E and the supposed curse of Crystal Cove, can stop Mystery Inc.! As such, HilarityEnsues...at least, [[CerebusSyndrome at first]].
While featuring a typical [[ScoobyDooHoax Scooby-Doo formula]] of MonsterOfTheWeek that is unmasked at the end, the series also contains a MythArc revolving around a cursed treasure buried under the town which slowly and steadily pours on the NightmareFuel.
