In an unusual move, Velma, out of Scooby Doo, addressed the Scottish Parliament this week.
Ms Velma recalled for MSPs the varied adventures experienced by herself and fellow investigators of the para-normal.
In particular, she remembered the numerous occasions when "the gang" investigated seemingly spectral phenomena occurring at a local showground, only to discover that the ghostly going-ons were being staged to force the showground into bankruptcy, thus allowing a crooked property developer to grab the land for a knock-down price.
Velma remarked that the exposed culprit, prior to being taken away by police, would invariably provide a detailed exposition of his plan and conclude that "And I would've gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those darn kids!"
Velma concluded her session by taking questions from MSPs and denied that her nickname was Gnasher.
