  • Who Would Win?: Amongst other Cartoon Network-related head-to-heads, the Mystery Machine is pitted up against the Mir Space Station and given the advantage for having "launched" in 1969 and still being "seen in 145 countries around the world", breaking down "in front of cemeteries and haunted houses" rather than "at the slightest breath of solar wind" and because it contains "Scooby Snacks and quadruple-decker cold-cut sandwiches" instead of "freeze-dried borscht in hermetically sealed packets". The only disadvantage it receives is in a head-to-head between the quotes "Isn't that the same blue planet we orbited a few hours ago?" and "Jinkies! We've been driving in circles the whole time!"
