For those of you who are not aware, one of the shows that helped to inspire the Mystery Inc, is the Archies. And although they are from different companies, I wonder if they actually share the same universe.
Why? Josie and the Pussycats. The comics for Josie and her band were written by the same comic publisher as the Archies, Archie Comics, and the two groups have had several crossovers. While at the same time, the cartoons for Josie and her band were created by the same company as Mystery Inc., Hanna-Barbera, and during the New Scooby-Doo Movies phase of the series, Josie and her band had a crossover with Scooby-Doo.
So, my question is: do the Archies and Mystery Inc, inhabit the same universe, or would they at least inhabit a parallel universe with Josie being the common link?
