Pull up Fred and pick us up before the monster gets us! That’s right; this tutorial is on "how to draw the Mystery Machine" from the cartoon series Scooby Doo. Assumingly the van is a replica from two different car companies, one being the VW bus, now I say this because the front of the mystery machine resembles that particular van. One thing is certain it is definitely a six passenger vehicle, but the strange thing is you sometimes will catch Scooby Doo and Shaggy sitting in the rear of the van with no seats just chowing on some grub. The way the Mystery Inc. gang chose to decorate the machine is quite colorful, it has big daisy looking flowers running along the sides, and flowers for the hub caps, a very retro turquoise color with orange lettering makes the mystery machine a must have passenger van for any 60’s teenager to own back in those days. I love the style that the Scooby Doo characters have, not only with their van, but with their clothes as well. Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby Doo all have the same colors spread through out the characters. It’s like they all complement each other with a colorful color scheme. Who ever was in charge of drawing and coloring the whole Scooby Doo gang did an awesome job. But the most important thing is that all four teens and their big Great Dane dog have a get away car no matter if Shaggy or Fred is driving, at least it gets them from point A to point B. In this tutorial I show you how to draw the mystery machine with step by step instructions. The van is basically a big square box with a couple of windows and round tires. So hop in and take a ride down the tutorial path and draw your own Scooby Doo Mystery Machine.
What do you call the most recognized and loved van in cartoon history? The Scooby Doo Mystery Machine! The Mystery Machine is as much a part of the Scooby gang as any of the characters. It was included in the very first episode and has regularly made appearances throughout the various series. In the original television show it went with the gang to Hawaii in . Interestingly, in the van was outfitted with high tech gear for tracking Scooby. However, most episodes show the back of the van as empty.
