The Mystery Machine is a van and main mode of transportation for Mystery Incorporated in the Scooby-Doo animated franchise. As the owner, Fred Jones has driven it in most incarnations, except for in the Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo shorts and Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, in which Fred inexplicably had apparently given up ownership to Shaggy Rogers, and completely made sense, right?

  • In the Timon and Pumbaa episode "Werehog of London," a fortune teller warns Timon and Pumbaa that no one is safe from the curse of the werehog, not even "those meddling teens and their pesky dog," and then the camera reveals an orange and blue van resembling the Mystery Machine that has been abandoned after it was knocked into a lampost.
  • A van resembling the Mystery Machine pops up as a photo when the main characters are thinking of a getaway car in the film Going in Style.
