Car-Tastrophe is a story in Scooby-Doo! #153 by DC Comics.
Fred Jones is a frequent caller on Car Chat, the radio car-advice show. So when they need help, who are they going to call?
- The Car Chat show with Cling and Clang, the Thunk-It brothers, parodies the real NPR radio show Car Talk with Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers.
- Tom and Ray Magliozzi, the real-life "Tappet brothers" were pleased by their parody appearance in the comic and sent John Rozum an autographed picture.
- Terri Grass with her show Fresh Breath parodies Terry Gross with her NPR show Fresh Air.
- Karl Castle parodies Carl Kassel, another NPR host.
