I liked that the culprits in the original Scooby Doo episodes were frauds. Not having actual ghosts/vampires/zombies existing (or, at least, discovered) in their world, we could laugh at Shaggy and Scoob's fears of such things, as we saw them proven time and again to be just greedy/vengeful criminal humans (scary enough in themselves).

If supernatural elements are "real", though, those fears are justified, and they've suddenly become the smartest ones of the bunch.

I recommend a book called MEDDLING KIDS,  by Edgar Cantero. It is based on a realistic version of Mystery Inc (ie, the dog doesn't talk), but takes place years after the group disbanded as teens and get back together as adults to solve a new mystery. 

(The characters are NOT Scooby and the gang, but its obvious where the title comes from.)

I gave it either 4 or 5 stars on Goodreads.

My favorite Scooby Doo series was Scooby Doo:Mystery Inc. The show was serialized and a little more mature, but layered so as to be both suitable for and appealing to people of all ages. The show also guest starred other Hanna Barbera characters and had an overall actual supernatural threat that ran throughout the entire series amidst the fake monsters. Also, Harlan Ellison guest starred in the last few episodes of the series.
