With so many new shows constantly releasing on the OTT platforms, it is quite difficult to keep track of the shows that will make an impression on the viewers. However, the Netflix Original Stranger Things has managed to not only stand out but also become a vehemently successful show that had created heavy anticipation before each season. Even after the show is near its end, it continues to create buzz and is a great conversation starter among the fans of the show.
Over the 4 seasons of the show, Stranger Things has a plethora of iconic scenes that have made the fans sit on the edge of their seats excited to see what happens in the next scene. However, an Instagram user has pointed out references from the popular cartoon show Scooby-Doo, where certain scenes look exactly like a copy of the mystery show.

Stranger Things’ Iconic Scenes Are a Copy From Scooby-Doo?!
Stranger Things is the perfect show for people that crave 80s nostalgia, and multi-genre storytelling, and are interesting enough for them to binge-watch the series. Moreover, it featured a young and talented cast featuring Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Scnapp, Joe Keery, and many more. These reasons were enough to convince a non-viewer of the show to watch it.
Recently, an Instagram user (@its_ivanmars), uploaded a reel with the caption “Did you notice?” The reel featured a side-by-side comparison of Netflix’s Stranger Things and the Scooby-Doo cartoon and films, and interestingly enough the Netflix show had directly copied several iconic scenes from the 1969 cartoon show and the 2002 film.
The fans of the show were not happy as they commented on the post, showcasing mixed responses to the well-drawn comparisons. An Instagram user stated their disappointment, how none of the shows these days are original pieces of work.
“Damn, nothing is original anymore.”
Another fan commented that none of the TV Series after the 2000s are original in any manner.
“NOTHING After 2000s is original.”
While the post played side-by-side comparisons of certain scenes, a fan pointed out that the Netflix show even copied the same song, Pass the Dutchie from the Scooby-Doo movies.
“They even used the same song from the movies.”
A fan jokes how Stranger Things is simply the darker version of Scooby Doo.
“So basically Stranger Things is the darker version of Scooby Doo? Hmm”
While some fans were not happy with the fact that their favorite show had copied numerous scenes from Scooby Doo, a fan commented on there’s no issue with remaking a scene in the show, as it reminds them of their childhood.
“The old things are working always the best so why not a remake from our childhood <3”
While fans were commenting on their take on the comparisons between the two shows. The Netflix original is coming up with a 5th season of the show, and some other details related to the release date and how it will break records upon its release.

Stranger Things Season 5 Release Date
The 4th season of the show was immensely popular, and fans of the TV Series are impatiently waiting for the 5th and final season of the show. The final season was initially meant to be released in early 2024, with the shooting for the last season meant to commence this summer. But due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, things got delayed.
While there was pin-drop silence, Shawn Levy, the director of the show mentioned that the production of the 5th season will take place once the strike comes to an end, and the Duffer Brothers have been working extremely hard.
As it stands, the 5th season of Stranger Things doesn’t have an official release date, but the way things are progressing, it looks like the film willn’t be released before the 2nd half of 2025. Hence, it would be quite appropriate for the show to be released on Halloween, fitting the occasion and concluding its story.
