Shaggy lights up a bunch of dynamite cartridges as he stupidly mistakes them for red candles.

Dynamite is a high explosive.

Physical appearance

It's typically shaped like a long, red, thin cylindrical stick with a small rope-like fuse that can be burnt by being lit on fire.


Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Season one

Shaggy Rogers found some at the beginning of the gang's time in Gold City Mine, and lit some, thinking they were candles. After Velma Dinkley warned him of his mistake, he tried blowing them out, before throwing them far off into the mine before they exploded. After the explosion, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo shushed at each as they didn't want to alert the Miner Forty-Niner of their presence.[1]

The Snow Ghost tried to blow Velma and Scooby with it.[2]

Chill Out, Scooby-Doo!

Dynamite was used to help Professor Jefferies mine rare crystals in the Himalayas. Also, Shaggy and Scooby accidentally light some of it thinking they were candles.[3]
