Nightmare Fuel: Scooby-Doo

If you're looking for examples related to a specific show or movie, see these:


  • After watching "Vampire Bats and Scaredy Cats" (The Scooby-Doo Show), this troper, as a young child, had to sleep with a full head of garlic on her nightstand. For a month. Literally had nightmares about vampires coming to kill her.
  • The Scooby Doo Project [1] . It's a parody of The Blair Witch Project. That should show give you a good idea. What makes it worse is it's implied the gang died at the end.
  • One classic ad on Cartoon Network featured characters from Scooby-Doo: Shaggy showed up in a spooky castle calling out, "Scooby-Doo! Where are you?" This cut to Scooby on a tropical beach, saying, "Right here, Raggy! On Rartoon Network!" What was scary about it was not only the notion that Scooby would desert his friends in the middle of a case, but also the fact that Shaggy was barely animated at all, paralyzed and semi-slouched in seeming defeat as he called for help. It was haunting.
  • The townsfolk (plus Daphne) turning into werewolves in the first episode of The Thirteen Ghosts Of Scooby Doo.
  • The musical cue that accompanies Captain Cutler's appearances in "A Clue for Scooby Doo".
  • One from the classic show; episode 15 of the first season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! features the Spooky Space Kook. The opening of that episode... We have an alien, dilapidated ship drifting eerily across the screen, and then the titular Space Kook, a lumbering spacesuit with a glowing, flickering skull inside its translucent dome, approaches, staring right into the viewer's eyes as it gives out this horrible shrieking cackle.
