"Scooby-Doo" characters have for decades been popular Halloween costumes for children and adults alike. Nearly everyone falls under one of the represented character archetypes: studious Velma, take-charge Fred, beguiling Daphne, slacker Shaggy and - of course - the lovable Great Dane Scooby-Doo. But one "Scooby-Doo" character category is rarely, if ever, represented at Halloween: the villains. That’s a shame, too, since "Scooby-Doo" featured some of the coolest villains on television; many of which would make awesome Halloween costumes.
