Suspect Motive/reason

Marvin Brewer Pestering his sisters to tear the place down, so that he could look for the treasure belonging to thier old lady great grand aunts.


Culprit Motive/reason

  • This is a sequel of sorts to the movie Arsenic and Old Lace.
  • The pun in the title refers not only to the film (alluded to in dialogue, as Marvin, Melissa and Anne are the descendants of the two bizarre murderous sisters in the movie), but to the fresh artichokes and hummus, which Shaggy likens the taste and texture of to "old paste".
  • Shaggy complains about the vegetarian fare served at dinner. Ironically, since his voice actor Casey Kasem was a practicing vegetarian, he became depicted as one in the latter-day TV cartoons..
