This week, it’s Disney minus the weird, dark and creepy stuff they left out of their animated adaptations.

Before that however, our players will speculate on the birthing techniques of their favorite characters, and then try to name the common character from a list of three different actors who have played them.

Then as promised, it’s on to “Disney Minus,” where players identify the differences between their favorite Disney classics and the less-wholesome stories that inspired them. Absentee fathers! Shootings! Death! Death! Death!

As always, there’s a Lightning Round, and a special challenge for the listeners at home!

The Riddle

Always afraid

And sometimes groovy

He’s been the star

Of many a movie.

At a low point

(Heβ€˜d hate to hear it)

He faced a baker’s dozen spirits

Answer

Scooby Doo's companions often use the term "Groovy," and he is always afraid. He's starred in several theatrical releases, not counting the dozens of TV movies and Direct to Video titles. One of the lowest points in that run, though, was the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo cartoon, in which he had to work with Vincent Price (!) to re-capture some demons/ghosts that he had accidentally freed.
