16 Crazy Fan Theories About TV Shows That Will Blow Your Mind
The kids on Scooby-Doo, Where are You! are traveling around to escape the draft
Another dark theory about one of the shows you grew up on! This convincing theory asserts that the Magic Mystery Van wasn’t just driving around to help solve mysteries — it was full of draft dodgers!

Shaggy is a typical hippie who is protesting the war with his dog; Fred is military dropout who went AWOL to escape the draft; Daphne is his high school crush who wants to stay by his side as he goes on the lam; Velma is an anti-war activist. How dodging the draft led to solving ghostly mysteries, though, is one thing we don’t know!
