My Indian friend Jamal recently participated in the well-known TV quiz show Who wants to be a millionaire?. You might have heard or read about Jamal's spectacular success; the media reported on it extensively.

Here is what Jamal told us about his 4.000 Euro question:

I knew that A, B, and C were all relatives. Answer D seemed to be the throw-away answer since he was human instead and he was voiced by Mr. Top 40 himself. Answers A and B reminded me of two characters from "Through the Looking-Glass", and they even came in the right order; however, I was pretty sure that they were his cousins instead. So, I chose the character who many people have said screwed up the show. Good choice! I had reached the 8.000 Euro question!

What was the 4.000 Euro question?
What were the four possible answers A, B, C, D?

Which one of these is Scooby-Doo's nephew?

A. Scooby-Dee
B. Scooby-Dum
C. Scrappy-Doo
D. Shaggy

"Scooby Dee" and "Scooby Dum" sound like "Tweedle Dee" and "Tweedle Dum" from "Through the Looking Glass", and they were cousins. Scrappy Doo was a third cousin (and did screw up the show). Shaggy (Rogers?) was voiced by Casey Kasem, voice of America's Top 40 radio show.
