Google is celebrating Halloween with some Scooby Doo action. Presented as a five frame comic strip, the themed Google Doodle for 31 October features Scooby, Shaggy and the gang, plus The Mystery Machine, as they foil the plans of a sweet-thief. Who would've, not doubt, "gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those pesky kids".

Underneath the strip are five paw prints, which you can click on to progress through the story. Or you can click on the arrows either side of the strip.

A roll-over on the strip states "Happy Halloween featuring Scooby Doo".

And that's something the whole Pocket-lint team also wishes for each and every one of our loyal readers. Just go easy on the sherbet pips, or else you'll be running around with your coat on your head like a kid at a wedding. It took us ages to get our Stu down from the jungle gym last year.
