"Tooniness"

I think a certain amount of cartoon physics and nonsense has to be accepted as part of the show. We aren't going to be able to explain every time a character produces something from nowhere or gets more momentum than they should from rebounding off something, etc. It's a toon universe and the rules are slightly different from ours. Shaggy and Scooby especially have to be given a break on this -- their tooniness is much higher than the others. One might say Scooby is a magical being and Shaggy has absorbed some of that from his long association. RockSunner 16:16, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

Ha! I understand for the most part especially with Pup. Any examples? -- Anythingspossibleforapossible 16:50, November 22, 2011 (UTC)
I believe the technical term is "hammerspace". -- Anythingspossibleforapossible 16:51, November 22, 2011 (UTC)
The example that prompted this was the question about the "Shaggy Snack" pie and how Daphne produced it from nowhere. The logic would be that she cooked it in advance, in anticipation of needing something like that to motivate Shaggy, but we don't see her carrying it around because she stored it in hammerspace.

Removed it. I don't think I would have put there either. I also don't think Carl's Scooby mask has to be there either unless it's personally his. -- Anythingspossibleforapossible 14:07, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
