Chief Milford convinced Township Trustees to ordered the custom vans after seeing the work of Mystery Inc. first hand. Knowing a group of kids couldn’t have possibly solved the Quaker Caper alone, the chief suspected their Mystery Machine must have played a key role in capturing the Quaker Man.

“If having a funky van helps the gang at Mystery Inc., then having a funky van will help this department. These vans are absolutly essential for this department to succede.” – Chief Milford.

Not everyone was so excited about the new patrol vans. In fact, many residents began making jokes about scooby-snack-donuts before the units even hit the ground.
