Lately there’s been a trend of people trying to come up with the “super” shared universe. People keep trying to connect as many franchises and stories as they can.
As the meme says: Hold my root beer.
If you’re looking to start your own shared universe theory, you can’t go wrong by starting with Scooby-Doo. The mystery solving canine has crossed over with just about everyone; he even showed up in an episode of Supernatural. And with the new Scooby-Doo and Guess Who series there are going to be a lot more crossovers.
Granted most of these crossovers involve Warner Brother properties, such as Batman, but that is why he is the starting point…or nexus. For instance, not only does Batman bring in the whole DC Universe, but Batman did team up with the Ninja Turtles, which starts another branch. Also, the Justice League has crossed over with characters like the Power Rangers (the Turtles have also crossover over the Power Rangers). Finally, DC has crossed paths with Marvel, so you can add all the crossovers Marvel has done–which includes the time Phineas and Ferb helped the Avengers. This is just for Batman; you can see how this tree quickly branches out.
Scooby-Doo has also teamed up with real people, so you can add times that celebrities have shown up in other shows as themselves, like The Simpsons.
I’m sure there are plenty of other connections, but that’s where you come in. Try your luck and see how far you can connect Scooby-Doo to other properties–leave your discoveries in the comments section.
Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.
