Scooby-Doo had plenty to teach us about meddling kids, hijinks, and the virtues of DIY van repair. But was there also a little something in there about the scientific method?
The show actually taught a pretty good lesson to kids: The things that go bump in the night aren’t supernatural bullshit, but people with agendas who can be exposed via the thorough gathering of evidence and/or hijinks. Their are no ghosts and no monsters, just the application of science, technology and logic. It’s “Introduction to Philosophical Materialism” for kids.
