Scooby Doo was a popular animated television character on Earth that appeared in a TV series of the same name.
After unmasking the Hervoken-possessed Jim Tozier, Martha Jones guessed he would say that he "would have got away with it too if it hadn't been for you meddling kids", a typical line for unmasked villains. (PROSE: Forever Autumn) Similarly, when the Eighth Doctor confronted Kai Tobias after exposing his scheme, he said "And I would have gotten away with it." Lucie Miller responded with "...if it weren't for us meddling kids?" (AUDIO: Phobos)
In 2015, "a Scooby" was modern slang that meant "a clue." Andy Hansen used the term when she didn't know how to get home after being transported back in time to ancient Greece. (PROSE: The Last Pharaoh)
In November 2016, when Ram Singh suggested that there could be a person running behind the walls and down concealed passageways, setting off projections or holograms in the old stone house, April MacLean called it a Scooby Doo ending to their investigations. (PROSE: The Stone House)
