Movies such as “A Haunting In Connecticut” would have you believe Connecticut is full of ghosts. This is simply not true. In fact, a plucky group of four teenagers and their large dog drive around the state in their van, The Mystery Machine, and bust these hoaxes. For instance, the Black Knight Ghost was actually Mr. Wickles, who wanted to steal all the valuables from a local museum. “And I would have gotten away with it,” he said, “if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!” Actually, he used a much stronger word than ‘meddling,’ but they couldn’t use it in the cartoon they made of the case.
Here are a few handy facts about Connecticut:
- State food: Scooby Snacks.
- State song: “Scooby Scooby Doo, Where Are You?”
- State drug dealer: Shaggy. He can set you up with about anything.
