Like, yikes!

Drawing by Speckly Woo

For those of you who are not acquainted with Mystery, Inc, this representation of the irrepressible gang may mean little more than mystery ink. To all three granddaughters, these characters are real heroes, and I fear the only way back for me is to hold my nose and eagerly receive 'Scooby Snacks' whenever they're offered.

Even the twins - just shy of their third birthday - are verging on the fanatical, with their own take on the theme tune, which goes something like, "Scoo doo doo, haha hoo"...in a loop. So the loop becomes an earworm, or 'musical imagery repetition', as it's otherwise known. On occasion, the experience of reliving improvised scenes to said loop is a little like immersive theatre...but with an extra twist.
