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.
  • In "To Switch a Witch", the townsfolk decide that a friend of the gang is a witch and were going to torture her to make her confess, Salem-style. Shaggy and Scooby take the brunt of this, which could have gone worse were they not Made of Iron. And the townsfolk never were shown to apologize for this when proven wrong, or even prosecuted for what amounts to assault.
  • 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 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo.
