|What's missing, Scoobypedia?|
Dum lives with Ma and Pa Skillett in the Hokeyfenokee Swamp of southern Georgia. Whenever Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Dum greet each other, Scooby-Doo greets, "Scooby-Dum" and Scooby-Dum says, "Scooby, doobie, doo." They then do a special handshake involving two high fives. Whenever he heard the word "Clue", he would invariably pull out a magnifying glass and, intoning the opening four notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, chant "Dum dum dum DUM!"
Scooby-Dum is a grey, Great Dane with the same black spots on his back as Scooby-Doo. Besides his colour he's distinguished from his cousin by his red hat, buck teeth, and droopy muzzle.
Scooby-Dum is, above all else, as dim-witted as his name implies. This spaced-out, unintelligent demeanour leads him to be both extremely brave or extremely cowardly, depending on whether or not he's actually noticed the danger near him is actually dangerous. His bravery in regards to the Gator Ghoul was because he didn't even realize it was there, and in later adventures it takes a similar amount of time for him to realize what's actually going on and to react.
In spite of his dim-wittedness he apparently wants to be a police dog and this leads to him eagerly investigating mysteries and always carrying a magnifying glass with him in hammerspace. Whenever the word 'clue' is mentioned he replies with "Clue? Dum dum dum dum" in the manner of Beethoven's Symphony no. 5, and proceeds to pull out the magnifying glass to begin looking around. Unfortunately his ambition is larger than his brain and the first clue he found was one of the Gator Ghoul's footprints that the monster was actually standing in.
Like his cousin Scooby-Dum has a big appetite, though does seem to as eagerly attend to it as his cousin; perhaps due to his slowness.
Powers and abilities
Scooby-Dum's foolishness sometimes gives him greater access to toon physics than the others, allowing him to save the day when nothing else will work. For example, the gang was trapped in a locked tomb and the only way out was to reach the ceiling. They built a human tower, but it wasn't high enough. Scooby-Dum, at the bottom of the tower, simply pulled himself out of place and scrambled up to the top. His ignorance of the laws of gravity thus saved them all.
The Scooby-Doo Show
Scoobies Doo and Dum, and Mystery Inc. helped solve a mystery involving an alligator monster who was trying to put an end to the Skillets' production of their popular "Fenokee Fizz" soft drink. (The Gruesome Game of the Gator Ghoul)
