Mystery Machine

The Mystery Machine is a van used to transport Mystery Inc. around the world.

Physical appearance

In the episode, What A Night For A Knight, the back is filled with various equipments (ladder, lanterns, and ropes). However, in the episode, What the Hex Going On?, there is a bench running longwise in the rear of the van. Also, in the episode, Decoy for a Dognapper, the back contains a table and chairs, plus the walls are lined with computer equipment; there is a large antenna on the roof and a circular skylight. Meanwhile, in the episode, Spooky Space Kook (episode), there is another table but this time the walls are lined with kitchen cabinets. On the other side, in the episode, Haunted House Hang-Up, the one wall has a cabinet and instead of double doors on the back that open-out, there is a door that lifts up, revealing the radiator. Another episode, Mystery Mask Mix-Up, there is a side mirror. And in the episode, Jeepers, It's The Creeper, there is a lighted vanity mirror mounted in the back.


Early history

1990 mystery machine

The Mystery Machine on its way to Oakhaven.

The previous owners of the van were a popular family band, known as the Mystery Kids. (It's Mean, It's Green, It's the Mystery Machine)

Scooby-Doo! And The Goblin King

Monstrous machine

The Mystery Machine was transformed into the Monstrous Machine.


Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes (Those Meddling Kids)

Even before the gang got the Mystery Machine they solved mysteries, but they had no way for their own transportation. From the time when they first began solving mysteries, Daphne Blake's dad reluctantly drove them around everywhere they needed to go, with him tightly squeezed into the driver's seat driving the gang to places such as a haunted house.


  • The license plate number as shown in Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo is revealed to be "195-343".
  • The Mystery Machine looks like a modified Chevrolet Greenbrier van with a 1965 Chevrolet Van front and rear for the animated series, while in the live-action films they used a late 80s Chevrolet Chevy Van in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and an 80s Ford Econoline for Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster, but the first live-action movies they used a modified Holden Van.
