The Mystery Machine Adventures was started to raise awareness and money for the local food banks in the area through my Musicians Against Hunger charity.
It has blossomed into much more, making Scooby-Doo visits for children and seniors and making appearances at Comic and Fan conventions. Thousands of miles and millions of smiles.
The Mystery Machine was once owned by the popular family band, the Mystery Kids, and acted as their tour bus. Currently, the vehicle is the main transportation for the Mystery Incorporated (Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo), taking them on their adventures all over the world. Fred is the owner, and has a very strong attachment to it; although he was kind enough to lend the Mystery Machine to Scooby-Doo, Shaggy Rogers, and Scrappy-Doo for a few years, when they went on their own adventures. The gang uses it to travel to haunted houses, to search for ghosts and to solve mysteries, be it in Coolsville, Crystal Cove, Hollywood or even Australia.
The Mystery Machine has the uncanny ability to adapt to any given situation, with the space to the conveniently packed items that might be. The back is filled with mystery-solving equipment, such as ladders, lanterns, and ropes. There are even items to assist the gang with many of their supernatural cases: an on board EMF sensors and computer for analyzing evidence. There’s even enough room for Scooby-Doo himself. The Mystery Machine was once thought to be taken over by a ghost, but it was found that the mother of the Mystery Kids had sabotaged the machine to help her kids make a musical comeback. And she would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!
