In case you missed our earlier contest, here’s another brain teaser courtesy of our friends from Mental Floss. Can you tell the difference between these recent news stories and the plots from Scooby Doo? Take this quiz and test your knowlege. Sorry, no prizes for correct answers.


  • J. J. Hunsecker

    I got 8 out of 10 questions correct. Not bad since I hated Scooby Doo as a child.

  • Paul

    80%! Got thrown off by snowboarders and Gene Simmons’ tongue…

  • Bruce

    90% or 9 out of 10. I didn’t get #9, not surprising, since I never got into the band KISS.

    Hated Scooby as well, because it was the same story: smelly, mid-teen hippies and one stupd dog solving crimes, go into a chase, make a plan, the plan goes wrong, but the smellest hippy and his dog catches the crook by accident, police take said crook away, and the story is repeated again, and again, and again…..

    100%! woo hoo! I do admit to 2 edjamakated guesses though for the more recent episodes. Hilarious idea for a quiz.

  • OM

    …Hey, it’s easy. The ones that are *real* news stories have the perp’s plan -not- foiled by those meddling kids!

    I got a 90%. Incidentally, the only one I missed is taken from a “What’s New, Scooby-Doo” episode. I’ve only seen one episode of that series, and plan to keep it that way.

  • Charlie

    Not a bad quiz. I got a 90%…I missed question number 7. I liked Scooby-Doo and I still like them. It’s just that overcommercializing Scooby was overkill for the animation enthusiast and is popular for non-animation experts.

  • John A

    I scored 100%. And I’m not even all that familiar with Scooby Doo. I don’t whether I should be amazed or ashamed.

    9 out of 10. I did better than I thought.

    I only missed the one with the snowboard contest. Must have been from the “What’s New” series.

    I only got seven of them right. I am not a Scooby Doo fan but then again I could tell the Kiss one was an episode because “KISS” and “selling out” are synonymous.

    #1 sounded like something real. Criminals can be really dumb people; if you are familiar with the Manic Mondays podcast or at least read those fifty state blurbs in USA Today you’d know this.

    80 percent seems to be the benchmark. I missed the haunted castle and the riverboat story. Though I could swear there was a Scooby episode like the haunted castle one. It guest starred Davy Jones, even.
