Nancy Drew (Characters)

"Wow! You suck at this Nancy Drew stuff."

Veronica should take that as a compliment, as Nancy Drew hasn't changed that much since the 1930s. Written by various writers under the pseudonym "Carolyn Keene," Nancy Drew is the original girl teen detective. Unfortunately, much like the Hardy Boys or the Bobsy Twins, Nancy Drew was stuck investigating mysteries caves and haunted houses. Only Encyclopedia Brown got the juicy cases.

"My name is Carson Drew and this is my assistant Nancy."

Nancy is the titular heroine of a book series aimed at young adults. Other than being blonde and having a nose for clues, Nancy and Veronica have little in common. Likewise, proud papa Keith doesn't really jive with Carson, Nancy's dad. We always considered Keith more of an honorary Hardy Boy anyway.
