We all love Scooby Doo for its thinly veiled weed references and campy, nonsensical villains. There’s something to be said for a world in which the monster is always just a maniacal old dude in a mask. Until recently, I hadn’t ever caught this particular episode. It stars a surprisingly calm Jerry Reed, who leads the gang to where he’s been kidnapped by playing “Pretty Mary Sunlite.” While the episode never mentions Nashville by name, The Grand Old Country Music Hall and Andrew Jackson Hotel are obvious nods.
“Lucky you knew the Morse code, Jerry.”
“Yeah. Don’t everybody?”
