"Am I glad he's frozen in there and that we're out here, and that he's the sheriff, and that we're frozen out here, and that we're in there, and I just remembered, we're out here. What I wanna know is, where's the caveman?"
Shaggy, Part 3

Troper finally learns the sickening truth, and decides to describe The Misadventures of Skooks here.

The Misadventures of Skooks is a five-part YouTube Poop series by Orpheusftw, parodying Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. The videos have become known for their masterful Manipulative Editing and very surreal humor (even for a YTP). They must be seen to be believed.

These poops display examples of the following tropes:

  • Dead Guy Puppet: In part five, one of the sights that Fred points out while trekking through the woods is Shaggy using the upper half of Velma's bisected body as a ventriloquist dummy. "Velma" frantically urges Fred to "look at the head," only for his attention to shift to Romani Ranch.
  • Death Glare: Shaggy gives Fred an impressive one in episode 3 after the latter interrupts his "pickle on top" song.
  • Delicious Distraction: When Shaggy gets all the Dragon Balls, he wastes his wish on a double order of onion rings.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: The Joker knocks out Skooks cold in Episode 5 with a single punch. He then proceeds to rub it in.
    Joker: Bow wow, arf arf!
  • Domestic Abuser: Fred regularly abuses Daphne.
  • Downer Ending: Fred gets killed by Batman and Robin, and is stuck on King Kai's planet forever when Shaggy wastes his wish from Shenron on onion rings. Then again, it's lessoned by the fact that Fred was a sociopathic jackass.
  • Dramatic Gun Cock: From part 4:
    Fred: We'll just spend the whole day having fun at the carnival, right?
    (Beat, cocks handgun)
    Gang: Right!
  • Everyone Is Bi: Pretty much every member of the gang has had a sexually suggestive moment with one another.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Fred is the only one shocked by Robin's sudden racism in part 5.
    Fred: Gosh, imagine owning your own—
    Robin: Nigger.
    Fred: WHAT?!
  • Evil vs. Evil: Mystery Inc. here is just as horrible, if not worse than any villains they encounter, even when they meet the Joker himself.
  • Eye Scream:
    • Skooks gets hit in the eye with a dart in part 3. Things get ugly.
    • In part 5, Batman gets jabbed in the eye with a hook.
  • Fake Interactivity: At the end of the fourth, the viewer is asked if they'd like to see the Strongman. You can't select "yes".
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When Skooks' eyes glow green, be very afraid.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: In the first episode, Hank Hill seems to be this, as a lot of the jokes revolve around him.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Fred gets cut in half by a turnstile after it gets flicked as fast as an engine rotor by a real human hand in part 4.
  • Imagine Spot: Batman promises the Mystery gang "Bat-Milk and cookies for everyone" when they get there. Shaggy proceeds to imagine himself as a baby drink Bat-Milk as formula.
  • I'm a Humanitarian:
    • "I always get a weird feeling when I eat real people."
    • The frozen caveman situation in Episode 3 is resolved by taking him to the malt shop...and eating him.
      • This gem from part 3:
        Shaggy: Isn't there anything more to eat?
        Velma: Only me, Shaggy.
  • Implausible Deniability: At the end of part 5. Doubles as a Call-Back to OrpheusFTW's 3rd King of the Hill collab.
    Robin: Holy hoodwinks! It's Fred!
    Fred: I'm John Wayne! Pow, pow, pow!
  • Inherently Funny Word: "Watch me swooce right in!"
  • Karma Houdini: Zen Tuo's two henchmen(the only villains from the original show beside the Caveman to appear) show up in part 3 to sexually harass and kidnap Daphne, and are never seen again after she's rescued. Then again this version of the Gang are no better and have no interest in solving crimes.
  • Malt Shop: Fred's fond of saying they should meet back at it.
  • Mind Screw: All of it, though this example from part 3 stands out:
    Shaggy: Am I glad that he's frozen in there, and that we're out here, and that he's the sheriff, and that we're frozen out here and that we're in there and I just remembered! We're out here. What I wanna know is where's the caveman?
  • Nobody Poops: Averted in part 2 when Skooks stands on top of Shaggy.
  • Negative Continuity: Shaggy, Fred, and Velma all die in part 4 (within the space of about a minute) and are immediately back to normal with no explanation.
  • Occidental Otaku: Shaggy accuses the author of being this in the beginning of part one, after he and Fred are turned into Bishonens.
  • Off with His Head!: Happens to both Shaggy and Velma in part 4, the former from falling onto a dumbbell bar and the latter from a wayward helicopter. They get better.
  • Or Was It a Dream?: Parodied. After Fred wakes up from a dream involving Skooks giving Shaggy a hand job, Shaggy requests Skooks for one in real life, much to the shock of Fred.
