Radar: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

  • Episode 1:
    • The sheriff has just informed the gang to "Stay out" of the way during the investigation into the latest crime/newest tourist attraction.
      Velma: I've got a "stay out of it" right here! *Raises hand*-
      Fred: Let me talk to him.
    • Velma saying that her generation "has only one thing on their minds."
  • Episode 2:
    • Daphne finds a magazine in Fred's room.
      Daphne: Traps Illustrated? Freddie!
    • This episode features the gang staying overnight at a woman's rundown hotel, who says that she doesn't allow boys and girls to sleep in the same room, "No exceptions." Velma remarks that she'll have to stay with Daphne, and the hotelier yells again, "NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!"
    • Velma's a goldmine for these, really. Especially her very... forward approach to her relationship with Shaggy.
      Velma: What do you say Shaggy, wanna go clue hunting with me?
  • Episode 3:
    • "I know a place that he can out another parking meter..."
    • And then Daphne's parents try to set her up on a date, with Mom comparing it to "trying a new cut of meat".
    • Fred says, "I'm a 16, but I swell up to 19 when it's humid..." He's talking about his ascot! Really!
    • When they see the ghost rig parked, Scooby obviously begins to freak out. Velma then tells him to wait before he goes "Code Brown". Scooby is brown, but so is something else that runs when people are scared.
  • Episode 5
    • Daphne makes it fairly obvious that she has no intention of actually tutoring Fred in civics class when she makes the offer to do so... alone with him... in is room...
    • "Do you recognize this creature?" Cue pointing finger, followed by close up on Velma's Que Horrifico shirt. The graphic of the creature was printed squarely over her chest area.
    • In the episode, Velma makes Shaggy wear skinny jeans. While walking, you can see his "thing" sticking out. How they put that past the radars, I have no clue...
    • That may have been how they got away with the line
      Potrillo: The transformation may be so totally complete, that I don't remember it the next day, like after you've had too much fun.
      • I thought he said fudge.
  • Episode 6. The ghost girl in the beginning of the episode was getting awfully touchy-feely with her prom date. It doesn't help that they were in the back of a limo. She even stuck her hand up his shirt!
    Alice Mae: This isn't my first prom...
    And, "Are you... Randy?". Tell me that wasn't deliberate.
    • Considering the way she treats the boyfriend in the limo, the revelation that she kept him tied up for days in a secret location while stringing along the gang is a little shaky. Anyone else getting...vibes?
  • Episode 7:
    • "Daphne! I've got great news! I'm not a guy anymore!"
    • How the bloody Hell did they get Daphne's Hex Girl outfit past the censors?! (For those who haven't seen it yet, or want to see it again, here you go, starting about 0:34.
    • Angry with Fred, Daphne talks of "cutting the brake lines to his van". Sabotage and intent to cause harm is bad enough, but in some circles, "cutting the brake lines" is a phrase that implies castration. Which makes Fred's repeated declarations that he is no longer a man all the more hilarious.
    • When Fred suggests a double and Velma volunteers, there's a quick scene of her gripping his ascot, throwing her head back, and grunting that looks totally suggestive. No wonder Shaggy puts up with her.
    • One of the songs they hear is called "Dance in My Pants." HOW did something that suggestive make it past the radar?
  • Episode 8:
    • One of the things a knight might say is, "I've got the pox." That means "I have syphilis."
    • The secret pirate.
    • Velma rubbing up against Shaggy in a pirate costume.
      Velma: Any way a girl could dock here?
    • Shaggy's "unless ye be in wench garb" to Velma.
  • Episode 9:
    • Shaggy and Velma making out in a secluded garden! Not only that, but saying all manner of... stuff to each other. You know, FOR KIDS!
    • And the closest thing to someone saying "F" You on Scooby-Doo.
      Shaggy: I can sure go for a big stack covered with clams and syrup at the Clam Cabin. Right, Scoob?
      Scooby-Doo: Choke on it.
    • Angel is pretty much made of this. She says she won't go out to solve mysteries with the gang because she's only good at two things — "Spinning plates and being a stone cold fox."
      Angel: So a pair of beastmen attack the town and you kids are moping? What's up, huh? This kind of stuff usually gets you all hot and bothered.
  • In the opening scene of episode 10, Velma mentions feeling like "a side of mayo on a Shaggy & Scooby sandwich".
  • Episode 11:
    • Velma approaches Shaggy and asks him how he likes her bikini. Not too bad on its own, but the fact that she's fully dressed and standing at the poolside while he's swimming seems to imply she was expecting him to look up her skirt to see.
    • Fred gives love advice to Shaggy... by suggesting he build a "Velma trap". One wonders how our Chaste Hero would react to the concept of bondage.
      Fred: Nothing says "I love you" like 200 feet of parachute cord and a cargo net!
    • And sure enough, the boys catch Velma and Daphne in a cargo net.
    • The time when the sheriff left, Mrs. Blake and her friend Shelia have an on-the-line Les Yay moment
    Sheila: Oh, don't worry your flawless skin (she rubs her hand against her cheek) perfectly coiffed head (runs her fingers through her hair)'' about this. It's just a misunderstanding.
    • In a totally non-sexual manner, the raw horror Shaggy and Scoob show after Freddy mentions spilling some red fruit punch all over himself while drinking it. He blithely mentions just pulling it off a rack, and that they had tons more inside. Did I mention he was in a blood bank?
    • Freddy says "What the trap are you doing?", which sounds oddly similar to "what the crap are you doing".
  • In "The Shrieking Madness". Freddy joins a fraternity of well-built boys that are all about wrestling. In one scene after tackling Fred down, there is a shot of them both lying on the ground, a smile on his face with his legs still on him.
  • Episode 14 has the principal and Angel Dynamite giving Speed Buggy CPR. Despite having no mouth, Angel tells the principal, "Just blow girl! BLOW!" It doesn't help that right afterwards, the principal gets...ahem...drenched...and suddenly becomes a woman.
  • From Episode 15, we have Daphne's nightwear. It was basically nothing but her bra and panties with a veil attached to it.
    • The biker gang the Wild Brood kick out of their own bar is called The Spankers, leading to these lines:
      "This bar is Spanker territory!"
      "Let's go spank somewhere else!"
  • Episode 16: When Aphrodite dusts the entire town with her love potion, Freddy's dad ends up slow dancing with Sheriff Stone.
    • Most of Crystal Cove's inhabitants where under Aphrodite's love spell. It made them fall in love with anything, including animals.
    Angel, to Velma: Baby, you just scared me out of my skin-tight leather foxy pants.
  • Episode 25: A villainess named the "Obliteratrix" wearing nothing but a black leather bikini top and bottom, leather boots, and leather strips around her arms, legs, and body. Here's a look. Though 'trix' is a common Latin suffix for female nouns, her name could be a play on "Dominatrix".
    • H.P Hatecraft remarks that the Obliteratrix is in "great shape". Complete with him hovering his hands over his chest and hips area for further emphasis.

Season 2
  • Velma and Hot Dog Water's Les Yay-filled friendship, especially how they sit on the couch together and even cuddle.
    • How about just Hot Dog Water's name, which in some circles is a euphemism for urine.
    • Hot Dog Water's last scene in the series cements that the Les Yay was fully intentional. "That's my girl" indeed.
  • Episode 4: Shaggy is playing "Crypts and Creatures" under the covers and when his mother is about to come in begs her not to. It is pretty much the closest thing to Mistaken for Masturbating they can fly under the radar on this show (SO FAR).
  • Episode 6: Mr. E and Professor Pericles pouring a dark liquid into champagne flutes. A carton of grape juice is then deliberately placed in the frame.
  • Episode 9: Mayor Nettles and Sheriff Stone's "stake out".
    • Also in that episode; the villain describing Velma as "wholesome and untempting"
    • That whole episode is full of it; I mean, the whole "You shall be JUDGED!" guy in a freakin' PURITAN costume? It's obvious the matter on which he intends to "judge" people. Mix that up with the line from the teenager about, "How are we supposed to make incredibly bad and stupid decisions that will wreck the rest of our lives over here, WITH ALL THAT NOISE?!?" and the entire thing is basically about sex. I suppose theoretically, the "bad and stupid decisions" could have just been about kissing the wrong person and getting hearts broken, but... come on. You know that's not it.
    • "The best way to take down a puritan menace is a foxhole surprise!" There is no way in hell they didn't fully intend that line to sound as dirty as it does.
  • "Night Terrors," the only episode of a Scooby-Doo series in which Shaggy and Daphne make out under the influence of psychotropic drugs. (Hallucinogenic smoke? How they got that past the censors is a bigger mystery than anything in the show.) There's also the parody of the infamous "naked old woman in the bathtub" scene from The Shining, with a clothed Shaggy in place of the old lady.
  • When the Sheriff and Mayor Nettles are first menaced by the Scarebear, the Sheriff yells, "Werner Herzog, what is that?!" Which, apart from being pretty damn funny, is probably a reference to Herzog's film Grizzly Man. Referencing a documentary about a guy who was eaten by bears is some serious Black Comedy, even if this weren't ostensibly a kids' show.
  • "Aliens Among Us"
    Sheriff Stone: I was 14, home alone, doing what all kids did when their mom was gone; rifle through her drawers, looking for old candy and used lipstick containers to store my baby teeth in. Don't act like you never did it!
    Sheriff Stone (again): "I knew I'd been repeatedly probed, but I had no memory of it."
  • In "Stand And Deliver," Daphne's parents are re-creating a beach in their house and tanning under a solar lamp. The power then goes out, leaving them in darkness:
    Mrs Blake: This is no time for romance, I still need to tan my back!
    Mr Blake: Oh, you know me better than that! It's not Tuesday!
