Shaggy by Name…

[Picture of Scooby Doo Toy box]SCOOBY DOO CARTOONS ARE PART OF OUR CULTURE.

“Why, if it wasn’t for you pesky kids…”!

We all grew up on the TV show, and have somehow managed to overlook the fact that the dog’s owner is a hippy called “Shaggy” and that they knock about in a hippy surf van.  In fact the whole thing is suspect, but still, it seems to be enjoying something of a resurgence as it is everywhere.

[Picture of shaggy toy figure in close up][Picture of Fred toy figure in close up]I saw a box of toys in my local Woolworth recently, it was toy figures of the characters — fully articulated and ready to pose. Right near the hole where a child’s finger was to be inserted, I couldn’t help but notice that the Shaggy figure seems somewhat well-endowed.  See for yourself. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Now, in case you think that this is something to do with the way the toys have to be made, compare Shaggy’s crotch area with that of his partner in mystery-solving, Fred.  It seems to be the case that either they are suggesting something about Shaggy, or else suggesting something about Fred.  I will leave that for you to decide. It is something of a mystery, isn’t it?
