Scooby and Scrappy Doo Short episodes

1980: "The Scary Scooby Funnies" (1984 rebranding; originally part of "Richie Rich-Scooby Doo")

Original opening:..................................................................................................................1984 opening:

Current opening overdubbed with Don Messick's Scrappy:

Here is where the big change really begins!
One effect that made these able to grow on you (if you give them a chance) is the music, which is mostly a continuation of the new '79 score, with a few new pieces added, but also, a revival of a lot of early 70's “Pebbles and Bam Bam” era stock (used on other shows of this season as well). This all blends together to give the stories a nice background feel.


A spaceship is seen in the sky. Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are in front of a campfire, roasting marshmallows. Scooby swipes them from Shaggy, and hiding them behind his back, finds they have been swiped by Scrappy. They go to sleep, and the two aliens land nearby and choose which of the three to take for their sample. The "scientific method of selection" they use is "My mother said to pick this one", which selects Shaggy. They carry him off, and Scooby wakes up and wakes Scrappy. They follow them onto the ship and find Shaggy, but the ship takes off, and they exit into space, but then run back in. The aliens realize there are intruders aboard. A chase ensues through the doors of the ship, with Shaggy being carried by one group or the other. Shaggy, who has been asleep all this time, finally wakes up and sees the aliens. He too opens the door and crawls (still in the sleeping bag) into the void of space, and is carried back in by the others. The aliens grab him again. Scrappy finds the control room, and Scooby lands on the controls causing the ship to fly out of control, puncturing the Big Dipper, and causing a planet to hula hoop with its ring. They land back on earth and bring Shaggy out to safety. The aliens then take off. Even though they vow never to sleep another wink after such an experience, all three quickly crash out in their campsite.

We have now entered a whole new world for Scooby. Now similar to regular cartoons, including the classics of both TV and film in past decades, the realism of the Scooby format is totally gone, in addition to the mystery format, and we'll still have scary foes, but they'll usually be "real"! The next three seasons (for a total of 86 short episodes) will be pretty much like this. To critics of Scrappy and the changes he ushered in, this is understandably the lowest point of Scooby's existence. He even for the only time, shared second billing to someone else, as these were originally apart of the "Richie Rich/Scooby Doo Show"
However, as Shaggy and Scooby's chase antics had become the focus of the mysteries as time went on, these could actually have a lot of value for those who like Shaggy and Scooby's comedy and cowardly reactions, which are still the same. Scrappy now provides the non-cowardly balance for Shaggy and Scooby that the rest of the gang once supplied.

Don Messick now takes over as Scrappy, in a voice similar to Ricochet Rabbit, and Snap of "Rice Krispies" fame. This is a great improvement over Lennie Weinrib, who was more fitting as Shaggy's Uncle Nat in the "Comedy Movies". The voice is here still "scraggly", and rather baby-like, but will improve as the episodes progress.

Second of three titles based on "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (last season's "Close Encounters of a Scooby Kind", and 1982's "Close Encounters of the Worst Kind". It's easy to get these mixed up!)


The gang has a flat in the rain, near a spooky looking house on a hill. Scrappy runs toward the house, and a lightning bolt prompts Shaggy and Scooby to follow. The bottom half of the door is open for Scrappy, and Shaggy and Scooby slam into the closed top half. They roll and land at the feet of Sylvester the vampire, who they apparently don't recognize as such. ("You can call me anything, just don't call me late for supper!") His mentioning supper was enough to cause Shaggy and Scooby to lose their fear, and he shows them to the kitchen to help themselves. Of course, Sylvester is interested in supper too, "only of a different kind", as he changes into a bat. He's looking forward to blood, being tired of tomato juice, which his cabinets are filled with. Scrappy nevertheless manages to find donut mix, and the bat flies in. Scrappy bags him and tosses him out the window. Shaggy begins making the donuts, and the lights go out. Shaggy and Scooby look for the fuse box, and the vampire tries to grab Scooby from behind a picture. Scrappy finds a coffin down in the basement, which he thinks is a fuse box. Scooby bumps into Shaggy, who then lands in it. He then has to explain to Scrappy what a coffin is. The bat enters, and they grab Scrappy and run back upstairs, and close the door; the bat slamming into it and turning back into Sylvester. ("That little guy can be a headache!") The bat chases Shaggy and Scooby while Scrappy finds a spray gun. The gassed bat turns back into Sylvester, who then stops them and asks what's the rush, and they tell him the place is full of vampires and bats. He asks them ("If I might ask, and I might, and I will...") how they recognize a vampire, while standing in front of a mirror, and not casting a reflection. They now realize, and grab Scrappy. The donuts they were cooking are now as big as tires. This gives Shaggy the idea to use them as the replacement tires, and drive off ("Drat! Well, back to tomahto juice!") Scrappy hopes he's as smart as Shaggy and Scooby someday. "Stick with us, Scrappy. You'll learn!".

Even though these are not mysteries, the familiar "Mystery Machine" van will still be the normal means of transportation, and Shaggy is now the driver


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are at a Chinatown parade. Hungry, they take a job at the Chinese Food Factory as night watchmen ("Last one in is a rotten eggroll!"), where they get all the free food they can eat. Inside, everything's going OK (except for Scooby getting encased in a giant fortune cookie, with the fortune reading "RELP!"), until a Chinese ghost is seen lurking in the shadows. He turns off the light, scaring Shaggy and Scooby, and then soon begins running off with the safe; his mask falling off, revealing that he is a burglar. Scooby and Shaggy try to run away, but crash into a statue, whose head lands on them, scaring the burglar. He tries to stop them with a potful of spaghetti, but Scrappy uses it to lasso him and the safe. We close with the owner commending them for "using their noodle".


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are riding camels through the desert. While Scrappy is riding like a cowboy, Shaggy and Scooby are being uncomfortably bounced. ("Whoever said that camels are the 'ships of the desert' was right! I'm getting seasick!") A sandstorm is brewing, and they wait it out in a palace. A magician watches them enter, and they are "someone I can work my black magic on!" The gang looks for food, and a statue swings its staff at Shaggy and Scooby. The magician makes a table of food appear ("This place may not be so bad after all!") The table levitates and then dumps the food on them. ("I've heard of 'tossed salad', but this is ridiculous!") They see the magician ("I don't think I like the looks of that guy!") and grab Scrappy and run. He traps them with closed doors, shutters and bars. Scrappy challenges him and he turns into a basket with a cobra, which chases Shaggy and Scooby ("Nice Thinking Uncle Scooby; you distract him, and I'll whack him!") Scrappy now rides the cobra, but it turns into a rope, and then a magic carpet. All three ride, but slam into a wall, and are then wrapped up by it. The magician is now going to turn them into monkeys, and starts shooting spells at them. They disguise as dancing girls, fooling him momentarily. They find a dead end at a mirror, which reflects a spell, changing the wizard into a monkey. ("Turnabout's foul play; well I''ll be a monkey's uncle!")
They resume riding the camels; Scrappy adds "That mixed up magician's sure sorry he monkeyed around with us!"


Shaggy and Scooby are shivering in a snowy wilderness, but Scrappy doesn't seem to be bothered by the cold at all. An avalanche lobs huge boulders at them. Scrappy wants to "splat" one, but it becomes clear the rocks are made of paper, and they're on a realistic studio tour in a "super duper movie studio". They go to catch up with the tour group, and a director assumes the gang are his stunt men, and they go along, allured by the mention of "huge salaries" ("We'll clean up!") and being in the movies. They take their place on the big city set of "Bing Bong the Monster". Take one: the huge ape simpy grabs them. Held high up off the ground, Shaggy and Scooby run and hang from his fingers as Scrappy challenges, and then gets inside of him, controlling his eyes ("Look what I can do!") The director cuts, and places them on top of a skycraper (Shaggy actually thinks he was referring to the little model he first showed them). The movie is "Sky High Inferno", and the blaze starts near the top ("Like where's the fire escape?") When the director calls for the fire engine, the gang is already down manning the hydrant and hose ("How did you get down here?" "Like, very fast!") Scrappy cranks a lot of pressure, which shoots at the director. As their "last chance", ("NO SLIPUPS!") he has Shaggy and Scooby tied up to Hawaiian palms. Mona Loa brings the captive sailors their lunch, and Scrappy is her young brother who loosens their ropes, but before they can eat, a hurricane hits (tossing all the fruit at them, and then coconuts from the trees). Scrappy calls "puppy power" and walks against the wind, to find the huge fan creating the wind ("It's no hurricane... I bet you knew it all the time!"), which he turns around onto the director, blowing his clothes off.
He how has the ideal parts for them: "cleaning up" as janitors!


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are driving through the Egyptian Desert. They are so hot, they see a mirage of a refreshment stand. After getting buried in a sand storm, they soon discover a pyramid. Shaggy is worried because that's "a real dead place", where the ancient pharaohs were buried, but Scrappy runs in ahead. Inside, Scooby and Shaggy are horrified by a living pharaoh's head that turns out to be Scrappy wearing the headpiece. They do however, encounter a moving mummy who comes after them. Scrappy wants to attack, but Scooby grabs him. They hide amongst ancient wall paintings, and then try to escape on a boat in an indoor lake, but what looks like stepping stones are actually hungry crocodiles. Shaggy and Scooby narrowly escape their jaws, which Scrappy is able to simply snap/pin shut, and navigates one to safety. The mummy appears again, and Scrappy simply unwinds him ("See, I knew he was nothing but hot air"). But upon leaving the pyramid, the mummy's spirit follows them outside, leaving footprints in the sand. The gang drives off into the desert.

In this episode, we really begin to see the "invincible" Scrappy who really can take care of himself and the others. He has become quite different from the first season, and the critics never realized how the character was so greatly improved here

Story starts out similar to "Desert Dilemma", the first entry in this half hour.


Scooby and Shaggy are taking a siesta (Scooby is awaken by a rooster saying "Hey, señor"! Shaggy thought it was still night because his sombrero is pulled over his face). Scrappy brings them hot tamales for breakfast, and they breathe fire, but it has no effect on him. They're going to look for the bullfighting arena, but find that they've camped right in the center of it! ("What great seats, huh, Uncle Scooby?") The bull is charging already at them, and Scrappy gets to be bullfighter with the red cape, and then goes at him with boxing gloves, which the bull wears as well. Before any blows are thrown, Shaggy and Scooby act like boxing referees to distract him. Scrappy next plays hockey with him, and Shaggy and Scooby order him to the penalty box and then they disguise as a female bull (complete with horns) which is kissed by him. The head momentarily comes off of Scooby, giving them away, and then Scrappy takes to the head and charges, and in a reversal, the bull now makes like a bullfighter with the cape, causing Shaggy and Scooby to slam against a wall. Scrappy now jumps on the bull for some "bronco bull busting". They are approaching Shaggy and Scooby, who now uses Scooby's ears as a helicopter propeller to lift out of the way. Scrappy covers the bull's eyes and a crash is heard. Shaggy and Scooby are saying "poor little Scrappy", but the injured bull brings him to them. They are showered with flowers, and drive away, "You think we were too much for him?"


The gang is hungry, standing on a wharf, and see a sign for Captain Jack's Restaurant next to a ship. Once they board, the sign is picked up and taken to where the restaurant really is, and they find themselves heading out to sea on a rusty old tub. What's worse, they hear a crewmember telling the captain that he'll throw any stowaways to the sharks. Shaggy and Scooby try to hide before being found, but Scrappy tries to play shuffleboard, causing Scooby to slip into the cargo hold where he is found. He and Shaggy hide in a vent, but Scrappy is now fishing. The crewmember hears them and begins chasing, and is fooled by Shaggy and Scooby dressing like tourists on a cruise. Scrappy catches a small fish that is eaten by a shark ("Hey! That's MY fish! I'll teach ya!") Calling "puppy power!", he reels the shark in, which is caught by Shaggy, who runs with the shark as it tries to bite Scooby. ("Save some of him for me, Uncle Scooby!") He tosses the shark to the crewmember, who's saying "hold it!" ("No, you hold it!"), and he tosses it back into the ocean. They next take the lifeboat ("See if we ever take a cruise on your floatin' bathtub again, buster!") but the shark busts through it, and Scrappy, trying to toss them a rope, ends up lassoing the shark, and they go skiing on the partly sunken boat and crash on the wharf. Shaggy is not hungry anymore, but Scooby has a fish in his mouth!

The scenes with the shark comprise much of the "Scary Scooby Funnies" opening


The gang is on the beach, and sees a real live pirate, with his shovel and treasure map. When Shaggy mentions that they're against the law, Scrappy wants to "splat him with a capital S!" He runs and skids, covering him with sand, but then the pirate bags him, and takes him to his ship to be his cabin boy. Shaggy and Scooby climb aboard via the anchor chain, and think they've found Scrappy under a cover, but it's really a pig. ("We better catch that pig before he squeals on us") They find Scrappy, and the pirate chases them and they run up the mast and onto a wire. The pirate shakes them down, and they land stacked on top of him. They deposit Scrappy in the crow's nest, and then slide down a sail and land on a pile of cannonballs. The pirate uses one to bowl the barrels they're now hiding amidst. ("Like I think we just struck out!") Scrappy swings on a rope kicking the pirate down the hatch, but falls in with him, yet then comes up riding the pig. Shaggy and Scooby trip the pirate up, and then jump into one coil of rope, and out the other, and then the pirate chops down the mast they've climbed. Scrappy then bats him into the ocean with a sail. He climbs up the anchor chain, but Scrappy (taking the wheel as the new captain) calls "anchors aweigh", dropping him back into the water, and then dropping the lifeboat on his head ("I feel kind of sorry for that pirate; he never had a chance!") He rows away, saying "Mutiny! That's what it is!" The gang and the pig sail off, "for a life on the ocean waves". "With Captain Scrappy!" "And Scooby Dooby Doo, too!"


The gang is riding through the Himalayas on a llama. They find a cliff dwelling, that "looks like it's gone to the cats" (rather than the dogs); being full of cat statues. Scrappy insults a statue, which turns out to be a live Siamese cat, who begins hissing. It's a cat sanctuary, and its owner is behind them, and calls them his "little mice", and gives chase. They run outside and fall into a shrinking pool, and now are the size of mice! (Scrappy, still is doing his "let me at 'em" prance, and can't even hold up the hat he was wearing!) The man sics the cat on them, who plays the shell game with the three hats, and picks the one all three are now under. They run into a tree, and onto the branch, and Scrappy pelts the cat with an apple. They swing on a vine and reenter the sanctuary where the chase continues. On a desk, they make a paper airplane to fly high above the cat, and toss grapes for the man to slip on, himself landing in the pool. The cat now chases him. The paper plane lands on the llama, and they leave, and the snow changes them back to normal. Scrappy tosses Shaggy and Scooby grapes, and when Scooby snags Shaggy's grape with his tongue, Scrappy comments "No wonder we licked that crazy cat man!"


At the circus, Shaggy and Scooby are scared by just the poster of a lion, and run into a cage, where Shaggy calls a baby gorilla ugly, and is then confronted by his mother, and runs out (they fit easily between the bars). Shaggy is short on funds to see the circus, but there's a "Help Wanted" sign, and Scrappy runs in, and they get jobs as food vendors. Shaggy and Scoohy immediately begin eating the food as they watch the show, and then an elephant sucks up all the peanuts Scrappy is selling ("What are you, a peanut pincher?"). Soon, Shaggy and Scooby realize they have eaten all the food, and the boss hears this, and sees Scrappy empty handed as well ("There go the profits! You'll pay for this!"). He chases them into the dressing rooms where they disguise as a lion tamer's act, with Shaggy and Scooby in a lion suit. They end up walking into the actual lion cage where they are chased by a lion. The boss sees, and the three now disguise as clowns, following a seal onto the tight rope. They land in a canon and are fired into a pile of hay. They're a hit with the crowd! The boss sees this and offers them a contract, to do this as a "routine". They grab Scrappy (who is excited about the idea) and flee the circus tent.


High on top of a cliff over the ocean, the gang looks for a beach. Scrappy realizes a hang glider might get them down to sea level, and he takes one, and Shaggy and Scooby grab on after following him off the cliff trying to stop him. They encounter a waterspout that spins them around, and enter a lightning storm. They come out of it heading for a city, and as Scooby's safety helmet straps stretch, he has to dodge skyscrapers. He confuses a man in an office and dips into a pool scaring a girl. They enter a cloud, and then feel like they're on solid ground, but it's the wings of a jetliner. Trying to get passengers' attention, they scare a couple, where one sees a man, and the other sees a dog. They take off on the hang glider again, and are attacked by a huge vulture that destroys the glider, and they finally fall to the beach. Scrappy now wants to go surfing and grabs a board, but the ocean is very rough. Shaggy and Scooby faint.


The gang is in the "deepest, darkest jungle" on a butterfly hunt. Scrappy ends up netting a lion ("I thought that butterfly was a little heavy"). They grab him and run, and see a treehouse which will be safe from the lion. However, this belongs to "Nazrat of the Jungle" ("Nobody tresspasses on MY domain!") He rolls down his huge snake like a rope, which they mistake it for and climb. It rolls back up, trapping them, and Nazrat tosses them toward the water and a crocodile. They run back up and then swing on vines into a tree, but he is following on an elephant, who knocks the tree down, and tosses Scooby (he passes over Stanley and Livingston having their tea, who think it's a "rare form of jungle bird"). Scooby bounces off of a tree and lands on the elephant, who tosses him into a tree trunk, and then continues the chase. They jump onto a log, but go over the falls (which is fun to Scrappy). They have escaped, and now a butterfly lands on Scooby's nose, and Scrappy nets him. ("We netted a big one!")

This appears to spoof Filmation's rendition of Tarzan, that was still popular around this time


At the amusement park, Scooby tries to get cotton candy and salt water taffy from a machine, and gets sucked in and spun with it. ("Sort of a 'salt water Scooby'") They pass by "Little Lulu", the 700 pound lady, and Scooby gets flattened under her. They see Killer Crunch, a strongman who ties a steel beam. Scrappy challenges him ("I'll bet my Uncle Scooby could do that, buster; you're not so tough!") Scooby grabs him away (Shaggy: "I'd hate to have that guy mad at me!"). They do the baseball toss, and Scooby tries to toss so hard, the ball goes the wrong way and hits the strongman, who now gives chase. They enter the house of mirrors, which Scrappy was already at. The strongman follows them inside, a crash is heard, and what they thought was Scooby's distorted reflection was really him compressed like an accordion. They next run into the House of Horrors, and Shaggy and Scooby are scared out, jumping onto the strongman. They next pose as the dunking clowns, which barker Scrappy pitches to the strongman, as his customer. He dunks them easily, and walks off without his prize: a talking Scooby doll, which Scooby plays with.


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are boating at sea. Getting filled up with water in a storm, they land on a tropical island with large fruit. Shaggy gets the funny feeling that it looks like a prehistoric jungle, and sure enough, Scooby sees a caveman in some brush. When he tries to describe him to the others through "charades", they see the caveman coming after them, and run. What they think are hills are actually the backs of two dinosaurs, which they run up and slide down; Scrappy thinking these are "fun rides". They land in a pond, and are trapped by the caveman. He mumbles something to them, pointing (Scrappy: "Oh boy; charades again!"). They realize he wants them to pull his wagon loaded with heavy rocks, on square wheels. When Shaggy says "Not on your life!", the caveman chases him and Scooby around the wagon, and his club bangs the wheels into a round shape. He is now grateful to Shaggy and offers his homely daughter to him for marriage. Claiming to have a "prior engagement", Shaggy runs off, the others follow, and they take off in the boat bailing out the water, as they tease Shaggy.


The gang is riding a train through the wide open spaces of the West. They pass through a western ghost town, and Scrappy asks if they can stop. Shaggy says "sure" (not seriously), and Scrappy pulls the emergency brake and they tumble off the train, which then pulls off without them. ("You've really done it this time, Scrappy!" "Thanks! I knew you fellas would be happy!" "Happy? With night falling, and stranded in a ghost town?") They smell food and float with the aroma, but find a deserted hotel lobby. The owner enters, and has one room left, and tells them to join the others for dinner. It looks like they're the first ones at the table, but invisible people are passing the food and eating it, which only Scooby notices, and so the others think Scooby ate it ("Like wow; how much food can one dog eat?" "Boy, I hope I have an appetite like Uncle Scooby someday!" "Let's get out of here before the other boarders get here and get mad!") Scooby goes now to take a shower, but this time, doesn't notice the line of floating towels he passes by, until he hears the angry residents telling him to get back. He goes to tell the others, and when Shaggy and Scooby go back to the bathroom, it's Scrappy taking a shower. As they sleep, an invisible ghost takes Shaggy's blanket and he thinks Scooby took it, until the ghost takes Scooby's blanket. He now realizes "This place is loaded with ghosts!" Scrappy now wants to go splat them, and ends up boxing the stuffing out of a pillow held up by a ghost. Shaggy and Scooby get covered with glue, and the fan is turned on, blowing the pillow feathers onto them, and then they are washed off, and land in a trunk, which is tossed downstairs and outside. They run to the station and take the next train, but the conductor is invisible. They jump out and outpace the train.


"Riga-ma-raga-ma-roo, I'm cooking a frog leg stew! Riga-ma-raga-ma-ree, Would anyone care to join me?" chants a witch. She remembers she left out the frogs' legs, and sends her goblin sidekick Globby out to fetch someone to turn into a frog.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are on a boat in the nearby swamp, and Shaggy flips a coin to see which way to go. Globby grabs the coin, and Scrappy goes after him, and is netted by the witch. ("Hey, what do you think this is, Halloween? Well I'm in no mood for trick-or-treating!") She decides he's too puny to turn into a frog, but Shaggy and Scooby, arriving to his rescue, are "more like it", and she sends Globby after them. They hide, but she lures them out with the promise of supper. But supper is to be "frogs legs; —and, YOU'RE GOING TO BE THE FROGS!" She shoots frog spells at them with her wand. Scrappy tries boxing with the immaterial goblin, and is confronted by the witch. The others grab him and escape, each shouting "haha, you missed!", but Shaggy then discovers (rather late) that he has been changed into a frog. (Witch: "well, one out of three isn't bad"). Scooby and Scrappy return as "wand inspectors" from the "Better Gnomes and Goblin Association"; take the wand, and change back Shaggy whom they had concealed in their briefcase (he was "beginning to crave flies, yuck!") They take off on the witch's broom (Scrappy: "Broom power!"), and the witch shoots another spell at them. Shaggy, glad to be back to normal, looks in a mirror. The spell is reflected off the mirror and changes the witch into a frog. Globby laughs and she changes him into a frog, and chases him away, both hopping off screen.
Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy ride the broom off into the moonlight.


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are eating London Fish & Chips at a sidewalk vendor. When they try to pay, the coin drops and rolls away into a cellar window. Scrappy follows it, and Shaggy and Scooby go after him. Unable to get into the cellar, Shaggy uses Scooby's tail to climb into an upper window. Inside, they find Scrappy. They are in a wax museum containing wax figures of various monsters (some of them from earlier mysteries). What looks like one figure is actually the Wax Master, who now wants to add the gang to his wax collection. He chases them, and they hide, disguising as various wax figures, but Scrappy repeatedly gives them away. (To "wait till I find you", says "I can't wait, now put' em up!") Hiding in a case, Scooby is forced into the shape of a guitar (Shaggy: "I didn't know you were musically inclined"). Shaggy tells Scrappy to keep quiet, but he gets 3 more words: "THERE HE IS!". They try to escape on a conveyor belt. A mechanical arm paints a mustache on Shaggy and a goatee on Scooby. Scrappy (asking "What about me?") is snatched away. ("Uncle Scooby has all the fun"). They are being painted as exhibits. Scrappy swings on a rope grabbing them, and they wind up dangling above a vat of hot wax with the Waxmaster about to cut the rope ("Out of the frying pan, into the vat"). Scrappy pulls his bow tie, causing him to lose his footing and fall in, and then double dunks him for good measure, to give them time to escape. Before they leave, Scrappy pulls out of the vat a wax figure of his Uncle Scooby. But it doesn't hold a candle to the real thing!


It is Scrappy's birthday, and he is so happy to be spending it having lunch with his Uncle Scooby. Shaggy begins telling them the story of his real "birth" day, when he was born to Scooby's sister, Ruby Doo.

Just out of the womb, the newborn attacks the doctor for swatting him. When the doctor comments that he's a "scrappy little tyke", Ruby decides to name him Scrappy. He takes off running through the hospital, looking for "action", and Shaggy and Scooby go after him. They bump into a hospital orderly who begins chasing them, leading to the usual disguise routine, such as posing as patients. Scrappy, telling his mother he's bored, sees Shaggy and Scooby running, and decides that they look like fun, and joins in the act. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as a couple of parents, with Scrappy as their baby. They give the orderly a bubble gum cigar, and when he says "coochie coochie coo", Scrappy smashes the gum in his face with his rattle ("'coochie coo' yourself, buster!"). Scrappy gets permission from his mother to travel with Shaggy and Scooby, who are now real patients themselves, in bandages and casts.

Looking back, Shaggy claims his bones still ache, and Scrappy says he's less trouble now then he was back then. Yet, blowing out his birthday cake candles ("birthday power!"), be blows icing all over Shaggy and Scooby.

Ruby Doo, in younger form, will appear in A Pup Named Scooby Doo


The gang is biking through Scotland, and Scooby rolls up a tree and back down, becoming a Scotsman's bagpipe. They arrive at a castle, which they for some reason think is their hotel, and find a whole table of food (complete with hogs' heads), which they eat. A black knight shows up, whom they think is the hotel manager ("Great costume"), and ask him to take them to their room, and he tells them they don't have rooms there, and that that was his food, and threatens them by crushing a glass. Scrappy still thinks he's a "big mean tin-horned manager", and they go to look for the "real manager" to report him. Scrappy leads them into the dungeon, which he thinks is a "game room" (and the knight then, the "recreation director"). Scrappy thinks they're playing "hide and seek" and the knight is "it" (Shaggy: "We better seek a place to hide!") They run into a closet, and hear the voice of Sir Morbid the Grave (a skeleton), and then run out, trampling the knight. (Shaggy: "When we get home; I'm reporting this hotel to the Better Business Bureau") Scooby pretends to be a whole hog dish on the table, and Shaggy hides in a painting. Scrappy catapults at the "big cheating meanie" for "not counting to 100", and lands on Scooby, shooting the apple out of his mouth onto the knight's face ("Way to splat 'im, Uncle Scooby!") They next hide in another suit of armor ("that no good nasty knight will think we're one of his friends, and we'll be hide and seek champions for sure!") but only fall over in it. They run and jump into the moat, and the knight swims after them, but sinks, and then rises, but is tickled helpless by all the fish in his suit. "At least we taught that old grouch how to have a good chuckle!"


Shaggy is reading the story of Alice In Wonderland to Scooby and Scrappy. Scooby falls asleep and dreams that he is Alice. He sees Scrappy as the white rabbit, running ("Bunny Power!"), shouting that he is late. Shaggy appears in the story as himself, asking Scooby "what's with the curls?" They go after Scrappy, who entered a cave. Inside, they fall down a pit, and see two tiny doors and a table with a couple of Scooby snacks and a sign: "eat these, stupid". At first, they grow big, and then they shrink small enough to fit through the doors. Behind the first one is a monster. They escape through the other one and encounter the caterpillar, who wants to eat them; and they sit on the tail of the Cheshire Cat. He turns visible and chases them. They escape by disguising as a pair of flowers. They find Scrappy at the Mad Hatter's tea party, but the Queen shows up (Shaggy: "I've never eaten with royalty before"). The Mad Hatter takes off, and Scrappy challenges the meanie queen who hates tea parties and intruders. She chases them, and Scooby is caught by the Cheshire Cat, while she screams "off with their heads". At this point, Scooby wakes up in the real world, but still wearing Alice's gold locks.


The gang is vacationing in the Swiss Alps. At the lodge, Scooby is flattered by a pretty girl poodle. The gang takes off ice skating, and a jealous bulldog watches, saying "Showoff, trying to steal my girl". He skates a hole in the ice around Scooby, who gets frozen solid. Shaggy and Scrappy carry and drop him, and he breaks into pieces, but then "pulls himself together". They next ski and encounter a very steep slope. The girl appears saying "yoo hoo Scooby", and the bulldog, mocking the call, rolls a snowball after them, which bumps them into the dizzying descent. Scooby's ski tracks are split around a tree. Shaggy wonders how he did that, until he crashes into a tree, taking a whole section with him, and the top of the tree lands on the stump making it look whole. ("That's how!"). The bulldog hammers a danger sign into the snow so they can't see it, and Scooby winds up hanging upside down by his skis in a gorge, forming a bridge for the others. They wander into a bear's cave and are chased out and escape, but now the bear has the girl dog cornered up a tree. The bulldog challenges him, but is intimidated ("OK, have it your way"). Meanwhile, Scooby slides backwards down the slope and crashes both bear and bulldog into the snow, and the poodle lands in his arms. ("My hero!"). Next scene, she appears at the lodge in a wedding gown with a minister, having "plans" for Scooby, who wants none of that. Scrappy calls "puppy power" and carries in the bandaged bulldog (already in a tux) to marry her. She says "Oh well, at least he can't run away".


In the Italian countryside, the gang stops to eat pepperoni pizza with anchovies, garlic, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Scooby winds up being tossed like dough into the shape of pizza himself. They visit the ruins of the Roman Colosseum. Inside, they find a live event being watched by ancient spectators, presided over by Nero. It is a lion fight, and Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are on the field as the next "victims". Scrappy challenges, but Shaggy and Scooby grab him and they disguise as barbers and shave the lion's mane off. Nero has the lion ejected through a trap door as the crowd boos and cries "out with the lion!" Next, a gladiator, Rocky Maximus is sent after them. Scooby runs right through iron gate bars, slicing himself in several pieces. He and Shaggy next disguise as vendors, selling Maximus a "hottus doggus", but Scrappy squirts ketchup and mustard on him. He chases them, and Scrappy frees the lion from the pit, scaring the gladiator, who lands on Nero. The gang escapes, but when Scrappy tries to go back to splat the gladiator, they find a deserted ruin again. They realize it was the chocolate covered pepperoni pizza with anchovies, garlic, and whipped cream they had eaten. Scrappy suggests leaving off the pepperoni next time.


The gang is fishing in a swamp. Scooby catches a small fish that is gobbled up by a big fish. (Shaggy: "The fish are hungrier than we are!") They get a bite and pull up a swamp creature that looks like an alligator. Scooby falls into the water, and when they pull him out he lands on the monster, and they try to drive the boat away, but Scrappy, aiming to hog tie him instead catches a log, and Scooby gets snagged by the rope and lands on a riverboat. Scooby, in the net, is lowered into the water, and sees the creature, and then dashes back up to help Shaggy reel "himself" back in. They pull up the creature instead, and then drop him back into the water. They look for food on the abandoned riverboat, and in the galley find only cans of creamed broccoli. ("No wonder it's the only can left"), They look for a can opener, and a compartment opens up, and Scooby unknowingly uses the creature's teeth as an electric can opener. He enters and chases them, pounding Scooby into a pot. Scrappy splats him with broccoli, and Scooby runs, crashing into Shaggy carrying a stack of pots. They then disguise as a dixieland band singing "Swanee River". Scrappy slings a rope at him, but Scooby gets tied up with him as well. He chases them around the boat and onto the paddle-wheel. Scrappy stops the boat giving Shaggy and Scooby time to jump off the wheel, which they then pry off, carrying the creature into the distance. Scrappy finds another can of creamed broccoli and says Shaggy: "No wonder this boat is deserted!"

South Seas Scare

In a beginning very much like that of a regular mystery, we see a scene of Hawaiian natives singing and hula dancing. A volcano erupts, and out comes a lava monster whom the natives fear their singing has disturbed, and they all run. Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are also on the island singing and hula dancing, and see the people running, and soon encounter the lava monster themselves. Scrappy challenges it, but Shaggy and Scooby grab him and run and hide in a restaurant, disguised as waiters. They serve him a dish, inside of which is Scrappy, who squirts him with water. They trick him into washing dishes, and Scrappy splashes him with more water. He throws food at them, and hiding behind a table, Shaggy and Scooby grab it out of the air to eat. Scrappy covers his eyes as he chases them, and he falls into the ocean, but soon returns. The gang disguises as hula dancers, and then run; Shaggy wishing he would go back to where he came from. Scrappy asks "well, why didn't you say so?", and simply picks up the monster and carries it back to the mouth of the volcano and dumps it back in (and without even calling 'puppy power')! Shaggy and Scooby faint.

Yet another clear example of the invincible Scrappy who effortlessly saves the day

Scooby Gumbo

The gang is enjoying a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. They stop at a restaurant and place their orders. As soon as the chef recognizes two of the customers as dogs, he throws all three out. They disguise themselves with beards and mustaches and return, successfully placing an order. Then Scrappy begins playing with a coin-operated scuba ghost diver, and its head-gear lands on the chef, and Scrappy takes his disguise off. "Mr. Mean Cuisine" chases them and they disguise as divers on a parade float. He gets wise to it ("That last diver is a real dog!"), and they disguise as horn players. He stuffs Scooby into a tuba, and Scooby comes out in its shape. He also stuffs Scrappy into a trumpet, but Scrappy comes out of its mouthpiece and blows it in the man's face. They next run and hide in his kitchen, first in a garbage can, then in pots. Scrappy makes some "Scrappy gumbo" to splat him with, and he likes it. He still won't allow dogs in his restaurant, but now allows them in his kitchen as chefs. Scrappy accidentally squirts icing on Scooby.

Alaskan King Coward

Prospecting for gold, the gang travels by dogsled through snowy terrain (even catching a glimpse of Santa Claus). They arrive at where they want to start digging. Behind a wall of ice, Shaggy uncovers a prehistoric creature which was supposedly frozen there for a million years, but suddenly comes to life. They grab Scrappy, who thinks it's a "claim jumper", and ski away. They hide amongst some seals, but Scrappy hits him with a snowball. They hide in a poster, but Scrappy gives that away too, and winds up in the creature's mouth. Scrappy next sets up a Scrappy-trap, and Shaggy and Scooby think they've escaped it for a change ("for once, we'll let the bad guy get caught in it"). But when the creature trips it, the large snowball it releases catches Shaggy and Scooby together with him. Finally, Scrappy releases water from the sluice he earlier built, freezing the creature back into a block of ice. Scooby leans on it and it falls over. Says Shaggy: "We knew he was a pushover!"


In the dark and spooky Moonlight Castle, Shaggy is welcomed to Austria by Adolph, for the fulfillment of an ancestral wish. His ancestors used to stroll through these halls, and "through the walls", Adolph says, but then says "oh, nothing" when asked about that. He shows them a picture of Great, great, great grandfather, Shaggy the 1st. Scooby lags behind the others (being taken to their room), looking at the picture, and the amulet the ancestor is wearing starts to glow, and he's transformed into a werewolf. When the gang retires, the full moon comes out, and Adolph has the Moonlight Medallion, and is now going to test the legend. Through a panel in the wall, he places the medallion around Shaggy's neck, and sure enough, when the full moon comes out again, he changes into a werewolf. Scrappy, still half asleep, thinks the growling is Scooby's stomach. Scooby had already left to get food, and Shaggy crashes through a wall, leaving Scrappy to wake up finding both gone. Scooby bumps into the Shaggy werewolf, who changes back to normal when the clouds cover the moon. He asks for a bite of Scooby's sandwich, the moon is uncovered, and the werewolf bites Scooby's whole hand. Adolph watches, happy the legend lives on. Scooby tells Scrappy, who goes to look for the werewolf. Shaggy is normal again, and he and Scooby go look for Scrappy, and then Shaggy changes again and slides down the bannister after Scooby. Scrappy tosses a curtain on him and they toss him into a closet, but then he changes back again, and knocks on the door to get out (In unison: "Shaggy's in the closet?" but they still don't realize it was Shaggy changing into the werewolf). Scrappy finds the medallion, and as they run out of the castle, he tosses it onto Adolph, who's begging them not to leave, as he'll "feel so all alone", but now as the moon comes out, changes into a werewolf. This actually is the solution for him, as now, with the clouds repeatedly covering and uncovering the moon, turning him back and forth, he no longer feels lonely, as "I have me to keep me company"!

Here it is established that werewolves run in Shaggy's family. This shall be seen again, particularly in the feature-length special "Scooby Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf". (1988)

This episode has the feel of the mystery episodes


Visiting a space flight center, Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy wander aboard a rocket on a Mars mission, and are trapped inside as the ship launches. As the scientists on Earth discuss what would happen to people on this flight, the gang is flattened by gravity, floats around in the weightlessness of space, and are bounced around like pinballs by a meteor shower. They land on Mars, and Scrappy bounces around, comparing the lower gravity to a trampoline. (There's a "full earth out tonight", and it's about as big as the moon from earth!) The scientists (still unaware of the intruders) deploy a robot, which begins collecting Martian soil. Shaggy and Scooby see it, thinking it's a Martian. It then stuffs Scooby into a sample bottle. Meanwhile, Scrappy is planting a canine flag (with a bone on it), declaring "One small step for mankind, one giant leap for canine!" The bottle lands near him, and he, thinking it is a Martian notes how it "looks like", "sounds like", and in fact is his Uncle Scooby! The robot is now chasing Shaggy. Scrappy jumps on top of it, banging its head. The scientists sense something wrong, and activate the ship's camera. At first, to their astonishment, they see Scooby's eye, and then Shaggy and Scooby together, waving, looking like a two headed, four armed Martian. They soon realize they are stowaways, and order them back aboard the ship, threatening them if they've harmed the robot. By now, Scrappy has converted the $6 billion piece of equipment into a surface rover. Upon arrival back on Earth, Scrappy has fixed the robot back "just like new", except that it now shouts "robot power" and chases the scientists. ("Well, almost new").

Strongman Scooby

Scrappy enrolls the gang in a one day crash course in bodybuilding at Muscle Beach Gym. Inside, Shaggy and Scooby are more interested in the food bar. Scrappy gives Scooby a weight, and he is pulled into a wall. A weightlifting bulldog laughs, and Scrappy challenges him. ("My Uncle Scooby's twice as strong as you are. He can lift twice this much!") So he throws Scooby his barbell, and Scooby lands in the food bar where Shaggy is. The bulldog coaches them on bicycle, and Scooby's cycle breaks loose and crashes into the ladies' gym (Dog: "Get a load of the ladies' man!"). The dog puts Scooby on the leg-lift machine, which tosses him into a locker. Scrappy slings a towel on "musclehead", and they run and hide in a steam bath. Scooby comes out smaller than Scrappy. The bulldog takes him and throws him into the pool, which returns him to regular size, and then puts on a plastic shark fin to scare him. A real shark watching from a pipe leading to the ocean sees him, and first falls in love, but then when he removes the shark fin, tries to eat him and chases him out to sea. Scrappy wants to sign up as members of the gym, but Shaggy says they get enough exercise just following him.

Scooby at the Center of the World

The gang is taking a tour of Badcarl's cavern. Inside, they take out their submarine sandwiches and can sodas. A pair of stalagmites are actually rock monsters, who chomp the food right out of their hands (including the metal cans!) Shaggy and Scooby grab Scrappy and run further down into the cave. They enter a room full of sleeping "rats" (bats). Not wanting to wake them, Shaggy tells Scrappy to keep quiet, but what he wanted to tell them was about the giant bat hanging behind them. They run, knocking over the rock monsters ("Way to splat 'em, Uncle Scooby!"). The giant bat flies ahead of them to block them, and they run back into a room and hide by hanging upside down like the sleeping bats. The giant bat hangs between Shaggy and Scooby; Shaggy thinking it was Scooby in disguise. He soon sees it's not, and they run, knocking over the monsters again. Scrappy gets out of Scooby's hands, and rides the giant bat like a bronco buster, tiring it out. He then scoops up water with the bat's wings, which he splashes on the monsters, shrinking them, and then carries Shaggy and Scooby back to the surface. ("Bat power!") Scrappy now holds the tiny limestone monsters in his hands, which make for neat pet rocks.


Shaggy and Scrappy are watching The Wizard of Oz on TV in the Mystery Machine, and call Scooby who is outside. Scooby runs and trips, knocking himself out. He wakes up, and a tornado comes and whisks him, the Mystery Machine, with Scrappy still inside watching TV, and even a nearby farmer and his cow, away into the sky.

They land, in the Land of Ahz, looking like Oz characters: Shaggy is the scarecrow, Scooby is the lion, and Scrappy is the tin man. They are greeted by the "Yellow Brick Toad", (who talks like Jimmy Durante), who tells them the yellow brick road was torn up for a shopping center. He leads them off to the wizard, as they sing "Follow the yellow brick toad" ("What a bunch of bananas!")

The Wicked Witch of the North by Southeast is watching them on her crystal ball. They hear her laugh, and the toad 'splits', running into a tree. The witch puts the gang in a trance which sends them floating (and Scrappy, who was ready to attack, picks her flowers), and then puts them to sleep. The witch's winged monkey brings them to her castle. Scooby wakes up, and he and Shaggy run, grabbing Scrappy who wants to attack. They are cornered, and Scrappy, who has "seen the movie 3 times" splashes her with water, melting her. The wizard appears and congratulates them, and then takes them off in his balloon (which runs on "Ahzium gas"). He says it only holds three, and when Scooby counts himself as the fourth, he falls out. The wizard is unable to do anything to save him. While falling, he wakes up back in the real world in the field he had tripped in. Only he still has the lion's tail, which hits him in the face.


Visiting an Army training base, Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy try to avoid long mess hall lines by taking a shortcut, from which they come out in uniform, and assumed to be new recruits by a tough drill sergeant. He calls them "dogfaces", and then, barking commands, straightens Scooby into a lean, muscular soldier, and orders them to the obstacle course. Shaggy and Scooby do poorly, but Scrappy, shouting commands from under the sergeant's helmet, tricks him into a workout. He then "fixes" the course by sawing a climbing wall making it a bridge over the mud puddle; tying climbing ropes together, and tossing the tires out of the way "so no one will trip". The sergeant, trapped in the tires, frees himself and begins chasing them in a tank. They disguise as service station attendants and spill oil on his head, and overinflate the tires, causing the tank to explode. He next chases them into the base hospital. (Scrappy: "but no one's sick"; Shaggy: "we will be!"). Shaggy disguises as a nurse, and Scooby as a bandaged patient. The sergeant asks if they've seen "three ugly dogfaces", and Scrappy (hidden) challenges: "Who are you calling 'ugly', buster?", which Shaggy repeats as "the hallway needs a-dustin'". This fools him, but then Scrappy wraps his head with bandages. They run aboard an army plane, and the sergeant shows up, and now aims to give them parachuting lessons. Airborne, they grab onto him, tearing off his pants. When they land, the general tells him he's out of uniform and delivers him his real recruits (a trio of country bumpkins). Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are released, but Scrappy now wants to see the Navy next.

An early 60's "Magilla Gorilla" style cue is brought out, in the tank scene.


"You can't visit Paris, France without seeing the Eiffel Tower", Scrappy reads from the guide book, from the foot of the attraction. Scooby pulls out the unfolding map and falls into the sewer, with Shaggy, looking up at the tower, standing on top of him, and Scrappy, pulled in by the map as he says "there are a lot of places to see in Paris!". They land in a bathtub which they sail through the underground canals in. Scrappy reads that "people have been lost forever in here". They are being watched by a shadowy figure from around a corner who says "You will never escape!" He turns a water valve creating a wave that sweeps them away. Scooby accidentally turns on the shower (which still works), and to let the water out, Scrappy pulls the plug, sinking it. They look for a way out and see the creepy guy playing the organ (one of the old stock organ tunes that's been used on Scooby before; "It doesn't sound like he's playing our song!") Scrappy challenges on, landing in an organ key which opens a secret passage they grab Scrappy and run through. It's a room with no way out, except for a hole in the ceiling. This somehow leads to the pipes of the organ! He plays a loud chord which forces them out ("Like this whole thing's a pipe dream!") Running across the pipes, the steam forces them up through a trap door on a stage in a theater. They go through a series of doors that only leads to the sewer phantom. On stage, they disguise as "can-can" dancers, and he joins in, and they run. Next are several bits involving Scrappy dropping different props, usually onto Shaggy or Scooby. He finally drops a cage on the man, and then, to find their way back to the Eiffel Tower, drops a background prop of it, which they actually run "into"!

Another one that has the feel of a mystery, with the secret passages and the creepy looking sewer "phantom". Of course, like most other creeps this season, he's presumed to be real.


An alien is flying through the sky looking to clone earthlings and take over the world. The first earthlings he sees are Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy, on their way to the "That's Impossible" TV show. (Scooby gets tossed by a lady's karate practicing plant, "Shogun Philodendron"). The alien shoots a ray at the gang, creating clones of them in pods. They are nearly identical, except that they have antennas and talk mechanically. Their job: to find their twins and eliminate them. Inside the studio, Shaggy and Scooby see the clone Scrappy knock a hole in the wall ("outer space power") --their "doorway", and think they need to cut down on Scrappy's vitamins. The running gag has the real Shaggy telling Scooby to cover the hole with a heavy file cabinet, and the clone Shaggy making him remove it. Then, the real Scrappy is confused when Shaggy tells him he made the hole, and wonders "How'd I get in there?" when he hears his clone through a door. Soon, both real and clone gangs are in the same room, and the real gang realizes what is going on, and moves to stop the clones. Scrappy tangles them up in rolls of film. They join their master on stage to announce to the world their takeover. (Host and audience: "That's impossible!"). Nothing can stop them except a neutralizing ray from Mars —or, a 2000lb grand piano dropped on them (intended for another act). The flattened aliens hobble back to their space ship and take off, as the gang brags about clobbering the clones.


Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are eating at a truck stop cafe. When a sexy waitress flatters Scoob, he squirts a ketchup bottle so hard, the ketchup lands on nearby Bandit's ice cream. Bandit's sidekick Wilbur warns him about what happened to the last guy who did that-- he turned him into a pretzel --which Bandit now proceeds to do to Scooby. Scrappy splats him with the ice cream, and they drive off. Upon getting unstuck from mud, they notice from the licence plate, that they have been driving not the Mystery Machine, but rather Bandit's nearly identical Master Movers van (which had been parked next to it). Bandit shows up in Wilbur's rig, and upon the cue [why didn't you] "say so", Scooby floors it, covering Bandit in mud. Scrappy takes a boat, with Scooby and Shaggy "skiing" on the pier plank it was still tied to. Propelled through the air, they land in Bandit's food. (He had ordered "one dog to go, with lots of mustard", which lands on his head!) They next take off in a hand car. After tricking Bandit with the phony-then-real train-in-tunnel gag, Bandit chases them in a locomotive. Inside the tunnel, Scrappy calls "puppy power", and a crash is heard. Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are now running the locomotive, with Bandit and Wilbur stuck in the smokestack.

When Bandit pursues in the rig and calls on the CB, Scooby answers "Reaker, reaker, re ropy!"


The gang drives to the Robot Ranch, an amusement park like last season's Londonworld ("Night Ghoul of Wonderworld") where the robots are programmed for a safe experience. A robot arm tosses them to the general store for their "duds", which has to be done over again, because Shaggy's boots are different sizes. ("Sorry, we're only inhuman!") They are tossed into the robot cowboy Rawhide Red, who acts aggressive, and Scrappy pounces on him, opening his panel, and they realize he can't hurt them. The human master of the robots is watching and says the gang is just what he needs, "two prairie dogs and a greenhorn" as new robots, and now programs Rawhide Red to go after them. They ride robot horses which he programs to run recklessly, and Scooby's horse shorts out, and Scrappy tries to cool it off with water, making it short out worse and the explosion tosses Scooby into a wagon wheel, which rolls and lands him against a post. Rawhide Red comes after him, and he runs to tell the others, and Shaggy thinks "that bag of bolts...can't even touch us", until Red grabs him by his scarf. Scrappy challenges him to a draw. Red draws a simple face and says "You Lose", but Scrappy adds a beard and mustache, and says "No, you lose!" and tries to fight him, but Shaggy grabs him away. They disguise as barbers, and when Scooby cuts his hair, he gets a shock. (When refusing to pay; "Don't worry sir, he wasn't charging you, you were giving him a charge"!) Scrappy swings in with talcum ("Puppy powder!") and he recognizes them and the chase continues. At a bar, Scrappy challenges, and the robot places him under a mug ("Prairie dog under glass!") The robot master enters and Scooby gets his foot caught in a spittoon, kicks it off onto the robot, who then runs blind into the master, whose robot remote control is tossed and caught by Scrappy. Now in control and "on the right track", he has converted Rawhide Red into a locomotive (with the robot master imprisoned in the caboose). "Looks like you got him well trained!"


Visiting the Taj Mahal, Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy look at the various statues. One, which Scooby laughs at, is actually the palace guard, who now begins chasing them. The guard is further angered when he drops a statue, and Scooby assembles its arms wrong. Scrappy then pounces on his head, and unravels his turban, spinning him like a top. They disguise themselves, and just as Scrappy is about to begin speaking, Shaggy covers his mouth, saying that this time, he was not going to reveal where they were. But Scrappy points out that he doesn't have to; the guard sees them, and is heading their way. They run. Next, he comes after them with an elephant, sucking Scooby into his trunk. Scrappy sprinkles pepper on him, causing him to sneeze, smashing both the guru and Scooby into walls. Scooby's snout is stretched out like an accordion style camera lens (he "winds" it back up with his ears). To retaliate for this, Scrappy pulls and releases the elephant's trunk, sending him smashing the guru into the wall again. They run into the jungle and the cave of a tiger. Scrappy says "hold that tiger"; Scooby grabs on riding it, and bumps his head. Dazed, he goes into a song and dance routine of the jingle "hold that tiger" (to the tune of "Stop that Pigeon"). The gang is ready to surrender, but now the guru is now friendly because they have led him to the lost ruins of the Rajas.


In the San Francisco "BFI" Headquarters Bldg, the Spy Commissioner receives a call that there are no secret agents available ("There has so be someone in San Francisco foolish enough to accept this dangerous mission"). Scooby is walking by, and he's "perfect". Shaggy and Scrappy arrive, looking for the snack bar, and the chief appoints them to the mission, of delivering a top secret package. They are to pick it up from their contact, 00Z, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and deliver it to Alcatraz. (Scooby ends up playing a tic tac toe game on the map which the chief had been marking with X's). The password is "Peter Pepper picked a pair of polka dot pajamas", and they have to beware of spies. When at the first location, one is already watching them and plotting. (Scrappy accidentally sets off a foghorn that blasts Scooby who was right in front of the horn listening to his echo). Agent 00Z runs through frantically, handing them the package after they say only a fraction of the password, and then the spy takes the package from Shaggy, and Scrappy pulls the others afer him. He takes a cable car, and they ride in another one beside him. Scrappy takes the package ("I'll hold that for you" "Thanks—HEY!") and Scrappy applies a hard brake, causing him, now running on foot, to run into and aboard their car. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as conductors asking for tickets, and he recognizes them, and chases, as the car goes uphill, and he falls off the rear. (They now go downhill and straighten out Lombard St. momentarily). The cable car bumps into the end of the wharf, and they are thown onto a trash barge. The package is to be delivered to Cell 19 on Alcatraz. They split up, and the spy employs several tricks on Scooby using signs, luring him into a shaft and even pulling him through a keyhole, as they take the package from each other. The spy eventually swings into a wall, and falls back into Cell 13, and Scrappy locks him in. ("Prison power!") They find cell 19, and the chief comes out of it congratulating them for catching their most wanted criminal. The package is an empty decoy. Leaving on a boat, he awards them with medals of courage. "My Uncle Scooby isn't afraid of anything!" Except the foghorn, which has him hopping again.

This and "Chinese Food Factory" were actually the only crime-solving stories out of these two seasons's 60 episodes. Complete with a good, old-fashioned "let's split up!" and being commended by a law enforcement figure at the end! (Doesn't it just make you long for the glory days of solving mysteries with the whole gang?) This story makes it clear that this is Scooby's true calling, and as we will next start another (shorter) season of comedy adventures, we can rest assured, that Scooby will afterward start to return to crimefighting!


While watching the movie Pinocchio, Scooby goes to get popcorn, and is buried in the stuff. A shady looking man pulls him over and gives him free tickets to the Pleasure Island carnival. Little does he know that he has been placed under a curse. At the carnival, Scooby eats Shaggy's food, and when he denies it, his nose grows longer. Shaggy and Scrappy at first can't even figure out what looks different about Scooby, until his nose hits a bulls-eye target yards away. The man appears, handing him a prize; a toy donkey, saying "You didn't think you could get something for nothing, did you!?", and the gang now understands what is going on, but begins turning into donkeys, hee-hawing. Scrappy tries to attack, ("nobody puts something over on my Uncle Scooby and gets away with it!") but the others grab him and run. The man shouts "nobody backs out of a deal", and grabs Scooby by his long nose. Scooby wakes up, still in the theater, having missed the entire movie. They leave the theater, Scooby sees the man offering him the tickets, and he takes off running; Shaggy and Scrappy wondering why.

Start of 1981 season, which is identical to the previous one. On the title card, storyman credit is added, and the background silhouettes of the rest of the original gang are removed. This is the form the title cards will take for the next three years, though the background music will be updated after this season.


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy visit Scooby Manor to see Grandpa Scooby. Scooby is at first startled when he sees him in a window, and upon their greeting, Grandpa confesses "I never could understand that boy!" Grandpa serves them biscuits, and when Shaggy and Scooby pull their routine of grabbing all of them first ("Nobody makes biscuits like Grandpa''; "Nobody eats them like us"), Scrappy and Grandpa beat them to the draw, grabbing them all back, before they even know what happened ("I always said you boys were slow!"). He makes them more, plus an upside down cake. But Scooby Manor is haunted by a horn-blowing ghost, who tosses the food at them. Shaggy, Scooby and Grandpa hide under a rug, and then, all four hide in a picture. Scrappy, on a fountain, spits water at the ghost. Next, using feathers from pillows, they disguise as chickens ("Southern unfried, y'all"). The ghost comments "Chickens is right, Yee-haw!" Grandpa, giving up, begins packing to leave Scooby Manor, and Shaggy and Scooby help him. The ghost appears out of a drawer, saying there is no place in Scooby Manor for cowards. Scrappy has had enough, and confronts the ghost for calling his elders cowards. To everyone's shock, the ghost, (surprised that Scrappy is related to the cowardly Scoobies) takes him in his arms, and unmasks. It is the ghost of Grandpa's pappy, Great Grandpa Scooby, Civil War hero. He praises Scrappy's bravery saying "I guess one out of three ain't so bad".

The last "Scooby" family relatives seen (after the earlier "Dum" and "Dee"). From now on, Scooby's family members will all bear the "Doo" name.

Another ghost unmasking (after "Chinese Food Factory"), but this time it's still a real ghost!


Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are fishing At sea. A storm brews, and their boat crashes into an island with a lighthouse. Inside, Scrappy comments "I bet if these paintings could talk, they'd tell scary stories!" One does talk-- it is the ghost of a pirate who says the lighthouse is no place for landlubbers. He floats to Scooby an anchor which "sinks" him into the floor, and the ghost's ship sails through a wall. On board, he makes them walk the plank, and they splash into the still liquid wooden floor, and are chased by a shark. They run into another room. The ghost looks for them, but they repeatedly scare him with disguises which Scrappy gives away (boasting about scaring the "sea chicken").

Shaggy and Scrappy get out of the lighthouse, but Scooby has wandered upstairs, and trips the lighthouse switch. It casts his shadow into the sky, which the ghost thinks is "the ghost of an old sea dog", and he takes off on a boat for good.


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are driving along in the countryside. Scrappy wants to see a castle, so Scooby builds a sand castle in the Mystery Machine, leans on it, and both fall flat. A magician in a big castle is unable to pull a sword out of a stone, which would make him ruler of all England if he could do it. He reads a spellbook, which has a formula to remove the sword: "two toenails from dogs, one big, one small, and the hair of one so tall". He sees the gang (exactly what he needs) in his crystal ball, and speeds their arrival by floating the entire Mystery Machine to the castle. Inside, Shaggy and Scooby want to get away, but are blocked by the wizard's large pet frog. Scrappy attacks, and the frog swallows him. Scooby picks up the creature, and shakes Scrappy out of him. The wizard makes a suit of armor come to life, and Scrappy bowls him over with a crystal ball. They run, and the wizard turns the stairs they're on into a slide. Scooby sees a skeleton in the dungeon, and the wizard brings it to life. Scrappy plays in a set of stocks, and when the skeleton breaks it open, Scrappy places him in it. The three disguise as royal tailors and mess up the wizard's appearance. They run, and then he throws his hat after them, which spins, getting bigger and bigger, capturing them. (Shaggy: "I feel like I've been 'tornado-napped'!") Merlin places Shaggy and Scooby on his lab table, about to make his formula. Scrappy sees the sword, and simply removes it from the stone, and bring it to show the others. Merlin proclaims him the ruler, and he magically frees Shaggy and Scooby with it, and gives it to Scooby. Merlin begs Scooby's mercy (and Scooby, bewildered says "Uhhh...Okay"). As they leave, Scooby gives the sword to the frog, who then begins bossing Merlin around. As they drive off, Scrappy suggests next going to Scotland to see the Loch Ness Monster.


Scooby is eating hot dogs and Irish stew. A leprechaun named Pat O'Wiley is caught in a Scrappy-trap, but refuses to take them to his pot of gold. Scrappy reads from the Book of Irish Legends that a leprechaun, when caught, must reveal his pot of gold. Scooby releases him and he begins disappearing and reappearing, and then he makes Scooby's nose follow him. Scrappy catches it in his book. The leprechaun leads them to a castle and then turns into a banshee ghost. He makes a phony door appear, and Scooby tries to escape through it but slams into the wall. The leprechaun tricks him by turning into a haunted chest, and then back into the banshee. Scrappy splashes him with water and demands the gold. The leprechaun then makes three doors appear, one of which has the gold behind it. Shaggy opens the first and finds food. Scooby then eagerly opens the second, only to find a ghost. Scrappy thinks that it's only the leprechaun playing another trick, but then the leprechaun appears showing that it is not him. Shaggy and Scooby run, and the leprechaun feels that this "wailin' windbag is stealin' all me fun", so he scares him off by showing him his reflection in a mirror. Scrappy opens door 3 and finds a rainbow. The three slide down it into a pot of gold, but then the leprechaun appears and says that it's only "fool's gold".("Now, ya can't go believing in pots of gold, can you?"), and it disappears. Shaggy and decide they'd rather stick to pots of Irish stew! "Scooby Dooby stew!"


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are out at sea on a cruise boat trying to get tanned on the deck. A violent storm brews and a big wave sweeps them off the boat and they are sucked down a vortex. They land in Atlantis and hear a horse laughing. Scooby jumps, landing on a gargantuan statue, falls and lands on a fallen column. A boulder falls catapulting Scooby onto the back of a Grecian Centaur who says that noone who enters the lost world of Atlantis ever leaves. Scrappy challenges ("hold it, enough horsing around!"). They grab him and run hiding in vases. Scooby gets stuck upside down halfway in. The centaur kicks the vase and it rolls with Scooby, then rolls back tripping the centaur, who then crashes. Scooby rides him like a broncobuster. The three run behind a stone door. They find bread in ancient ovens, but it turns to dust. The centaur finds them when Scooby sneezes. They then disguise as statues, but Scrappy gives them away, shouting "Right where we wanted him!" Shaggy and Scooby disguise as a female centaur. Scrappy grabs the centaur from behind and a bust is knocked off onto Shaggy and Scooby, who still in disguise, stand, looking like a 4 armed monster, scaring the centaur. Scrappy then bowls over some columns which trap the centaur. They run, and are sucked back up the vortex, and carried by a wave back onto the boat. They see and hear a horse, but it is only a man in disguise for a costume party, which they are just in time for. Shaggy says "We'll sit this one out", and he and Scooby relax in the deck chairs.


At Al's Health Spa, Shaggy and Scooby are left too long in a steam bath. Scrappy, who dozed off awakes to find they are now infants, and it could take up to a week for it to wear off. Scrappy now has to be a babysitter. When he feeds them, Scooby eats Shaggy's hamburger flavored oatmeal, and they both begin crying. Next, the babies play in mud, and when Scrappy washes them, they get carried away in bubbles. Scrappy races with the carriage to catch them when the bubbles pop. Scrappy is now pooped. They roll into a baby contest, and Scooby and Shaggy are instant winners, until they grow big in the host's arms. Too overwhelmed to explain, Scrappy passes out in the carriage, sleeping like a baby. He wins the cutest baby trophy.


On a tour of the Great Wall of China, Shaggy and Scooby are pulling Scrappy along in a rickshaw. Going down a hill, a wheel rolls off, and running after it, they wind up in a temple, and see a statue of a dragon. Scrappy reads that the words "Moo goo gai pan" will bring it to life. They leave the room and sure enough, the dragon is following them. They disguise as Chinese waiters, a Mae West dragon, and as firefighters. A fire-water battle ensues. Scooby is losing, until Scrappy calls "puppy power" and pumps out a powerful jet of water that extinguishes the dragon's fire. The dragon now pulls the gang in the rickshaw for the rest of their tour.


In a repeat of "Scooby's Three Ding-A-ling Circus", the gang sees the poster for Marvo the Magician's show, that night, Scrappy wants to go, Shaggy shows his empty pockets, and they answer the help wanted sign. (Shaggy makes it disappear in his hands like a magic act: "Presto; the job is ours, guys!" How he did it; "an amateur magician never reveals his secret!") Inside, all they have to do is dust the magician's equipment, and they get free tickets to the show. Scrappy dusts the magician's hat, and ends up chasing the rabbit, and bumps Scooby into three "saw a man in half" boxes which split him into three, and then Shaggy reassembles him wrong. He tries again, and seems to have it right, except Scooby's tail is on his head. There are now dozens of rabbits ("Uncle Scooby, can you help me get these rabbits back into this hat?") As the rabbits run, Marvo enters and confronts Shaggy and Scooby. Shaggy has Scooby explain who they are, in totally garbled dog talk, to which he replies "that's a likely story!" Scrappy chases a rabbit with the magic cape, springing all the magical effects he passes by and making the rabbit disappear and be replaced by flowers. He tosses the cape to Scooby, but it lands on Marvo, who is also replaced by flowers, as its's time for him to do his show. Scooby and Scrappy volunteer Shaggy to take his place. So he's on stage, with Scooby as his mideastern dancing girl assistant. (Marvo appears in Scooby's turban "Why you bungling...!", but Scooby pushes him back down). Scooby is now to do the disappearing girl act and switch places with Scrappy in a small box, but rabbits come out first, followed by Scooby with rabbit ears, followed by Marvo, who chases them. They jump into a trunk, which he zaps, producing the gang disguised as a swami who grants him a wish, which is to have "those three meddling clowns at once". He gets wise to it and pulls off their cover. He is threatening them for ruining his act, but the crowd is cheering. He invites them to join his act. The next stunt is to saw them in half. Shaggy and Scooby burst out of the boxes and grab Scrappy, still in his box, and flee. "Well, so much for showbiz!"


The gang has jobs cleaning the space shuttle. Inside, Scrappy pretends to be politong the ship, fighting an evil alien, and when Scooby picks him up, he places him down on the blast-off button, which launches the ship. ("Way to go, Uncle Scooby. Take this baby for a spin!") They pass through the Milky Way (containing bottles and cartons of milk, of course) and see "the cow jump over the moon" (from the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle"). Scrappy wants to see if the moon really is made of cheese. They are being approached by a Darth Vader like alien (with his R2D2-like sidekick robot) who wants to attack Earth. He thinks Earth "probably sent its best astronauts" to stop him, and beams aboard to stop them first. Upon telling them his threat, "I don't think this guy's playing trick or treat!" Scrappy challenges "No space villain is any match for me and my Uncle Scooby", and they grab him and run as he shoots rays at them. He blasts a hole through a door and they come out as his "robot servants", who give him a "beauty treatment" with gaudy makeup. The chase continues and they drop the costume on him, and add a jet pack, rocketing him off, out into space. They land, and Scrappy wants to "try it again", and they grab him and run down the runway.

When the alien ship approaches, a bit of common Superfriends score plays that hasn't been used elsewhere on Scooby


On their way to see the movie "The Chicken that ate Chicago", the gang passes Madam Olga's House of Mystery. Scooby is scared by a giant spider in the window, as Scrappy observes "all the neat stuff". In the back of the store, Madam Olga reveals that she has snips and snails, but no puppy dog tails to complete her spell to make herself beautiful. Her raven shows her the dogs in her store, and she hides in her fortune teller machine. (Shaggy: "This one looks 'real' alright; real ugly!") The fortune reads "Beware of those who follow behind; a fool and his tail will soon be parted". Olga comes out, welcomes them, and soon demands the tails. Scooby uses his tail as a mustache.("Rhat rail?") She drops a bar gate trapping them inside, and Scooby is scared by a laughing skull. The raven chases them, Scrappy challenges ("Grow your own tail, witch!") and Scooby grabs him and hides in secret passage behind a bookcase. Scrappy finds lizard paste and splats her with it. Shaggy disguises as a fortune teller; in his crystal ball, he sees a tall, dark, handsome-- Scooby Doo! (Olga: "Vat's eh Scooby Doo?"; Scrappy, challenging: "Let's show her, uncle Scooby!") They next wear Groucho Marx glasses, but the raven is wise to them. Scooby drops a box of chattering teeth and one bites his tail, and he runs. They hide behind the bookcase again, and the raven gives them away again (Scrappy: "You're no raven; you're a stool pigeon!") Scrappy is able to lift the gate, and they escape. Olga, now left without her spell, reads her fortune: "Beauty is only skin deep". She tells the laughing boxes to "Put a lid on it", which the raven does. Shaggy points out that Scooby is not the only one who has "grown attached to" his tail. A set of teeth are still clamped to it.


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy visit a history museum, and get locked in for the night. They fall asleep and dream about their favorite exhibits.

Ben Franklin Shaggy is joined by his friends Thomas Jefferson Scooby and Paul Revere Scrappy, who can't wait to splat Red Coats --and Sweaters. Franklin/Shaggy has invented an electric light, but doesn't know what to do with it. He goes outside to fetch his kite from a thunderstorm and is zapped by lightning, which he now realizes is electricity; the bulb glowing in his hand.

Blue Max Scrappy is awaken by reveille by Privates Shaggy and Scooby, and takes to the sky to fight the Red Baron. He flies around a cloud, ringing the water out of it, which floods the baron's plane, downing him. He then does a somersault, and shouts a victorious "Puppy power!"

Caveman Scooby encounters a huge dinosaur. Scrappy wants to attack ("ug, mug, let me at him!"), but Shaggy grabs him and runs, telling Scooby to use his club. The dinosaur chomps it away. Scooby hides in a hollow palm, but the dinosaur grabs the whole tree in its teeth.

It is now sunrise, and the guard enters to see the three sleeping in their respective exhibits. Scooby mutters in his sleep "Scooby Dooby Doo".


Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are working on a high rise skeleton, and unbeknownst to them, the foreman is a vampire. Their bungling drives him "bats" (he turns into one). They install a tub, but the drain is connected to the faucet, and the faucet connected to the drain, gushing water out of the drain, carrying the foreman away. They try to cement a floor, but everyone gets covered in cement. Lunchtime, the boss thinks about "putting the bite on them sooner, than later!" Shaggy is getting the creeps from him, and hardly has any appetite, but still makes a giant sandwich with his super hot horseradish mustard. Scooby eats it and denies, but then breathes fire. They try to put up wallpaper, and what Scrappy thinks is a lump is the foreman trapped, and not in wallpaper, but the blueprints. He transfers them to heavy equipment and tells them to have the building finished by morning, or "it'll be your necks!" (worrying Shaggy; and behind their backs, "It'll be necks one way or the other!"). Scrappy fuels the construction machinery with Shaggy's horseradish mustard, giving them the power to erect the entire building in a matter of minutes. The gang (not realizing this) is leaving before having to face the boss, but he appears and is pleased with the finished tower— the "Vampire State Building". He invites them to breakfast, and Shaggy finally realizes "He's a vampire!", and they run. "I hope it wasn't something I said" he replies.


The gang arrives at the Science Building, and get a job working for newspaper science editor Werner Wolf. While typing, Scooby gets wrapped up in typewriter ribbon and comes out all covered with typed letters. In another room, we see Wolf working on a scientific device he has invented, and if the experiment works, his studies on stone age men will be complete. He steps between the electrodes and is turned into a wolf-like caveman. Scooby sees him and is scared, but he keeps turning back into himself. He asks for coffee, and when they bring it to him, he has turned into the wolfman again (Shaggy: "I didn't know [the coffee] was that bad"; Scrappy: "What have you done with our boss?") They chase through a series of doors. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as janitors (Scrappy: "That ugly old monster's getting away'). Scooby's face gets caught in a pail, and the caveman removes it. Scooby wanders into a duplicating machine and is copied— when the monster appears, the copy balls itself up and throws itself into the garbage pail. Scooby lures the caveman into running through a wall. Next, they all play the file drawer game (like from "Watt a Shocking Ghost"; Scrappy: "I'm under 'P' for 'Puppy power'!") Shaggy and Scooby grab the monster, thinking it was Scrappy. Meanwhile, Scrappy himself, standing between the electrodes now gets changed into a caveman. He picks up the other wolfman and throws him between the electrodes where he is changed back to normal. ("I lose more help this way"). Shaggy and Scooby have gotten outside and try to remove Scrappy's "disguise", then they realize that it's real, and take off running. Scrappy turns back to normal and runs after them, none the wiser.


The Three S Gardening Service sees an unkept garden that could use their service. They go to the house and encounter the owner, a strange man, who himself looks like a vegetable. He says his gardeners all keep disappearing. The gang takes the job, saying they won't disappear, but the man says "Oh, really?!" Behind their backs, he reveals that he hires gardeners to be food for his hungry pet plant creatures. Scooby first notices something strange when a fly trap licks him. Shaggy wonders why he's imitating one, until he notices they are surrounded by man-eating plants. Scrappy sprays them with weed killer, and then the man appears and begins chasing them himself. They first hide in flower pots disguised as plants, and then run into a forest of monster trees, which rain their fruits on them. Scooby creates a delicious sundae. They get fat, and an army of plants is coming after them. Scrappy, disguised as Tarzan, swings in to rescue Shaggy and Scooby (he accidentally grabs a plant first). He then feeds the plants fruit from the ground, making them sick, allowing them to escape.

Some 1976-8 score is used


The gang is washing a huge Big Ben-like clock. Scooby gets wrapped in his wash rag, pulls it, spinning his top half like a helicopter; and flying around, landing on the hands of the clock, spinning them forward, and when the others try to grab him, they are all propelled into the future. They land in a Jetson's like scene of moving sidewalks and floating buildings. They go to Spacey's Department Store and find the Kitchen Supplies department, and observe the push-button food. Robot arms grab all three and make a huge hero sandwich of them ("Looks like we're going to have to eat our way out!" They have huge tummies afterward). They enter the toy department, and Scappy rides a rocket skateboard and begins winding up the robot toys, including a windup of Scooby! —Who then points him ("yikes!") to the huge robot gorilla (which is battery operated and won't wind down!) They grab Scrappy and run, (as he continues to challenge "I'll give you a right to the knee; a left to the ankle!") They ride the pneumatic lift up to the furniture department and hide in a bed, which converts into a dresser. Similar to "Scooby Saves the World", they next disguise as barbers and give him horrible makeup that even shatters the mirror he looks into. They jump onto a pole holding up a digital clock, and slide, down, twirling around, which sends them back to the present, on the clock face. Scrappy plays a joke, pretending to be a windup toy.


The scene is a punk rock contest. A spaceship flies in overhead, and its pilot, a Plutonian, is a little tyke who looks like Scrappy, even down to the Devo style pyramid hat he's wearing to the show. The alien sees him with Shaggy and Scooby and radios back to his planet that a fellow Plutonian is being held prisoner by a couple of "monsters". Scrappy steps away for a moment, and the Plutonian confronts Scooby and Shaggy, who of course, think he's Scrappy. He even talks like him, calling "Plutonian power" and threatening them with a "space splat". He shoots rays at them from his hat. The rays also bring inanimate objects to life, which come after Shaggy and Scooby. They grab him and run as he tries to shoot them. Suddenly, Shaggy and Scooby see two Scrappys. The Plutonian turns a camera and hat rack into monsters. Shaggy and Scooby grab the real Scrappy and run behind a curtain, winding up on stage. They have been registered in the contest as "Scooby and the Splats". Not knowing how to play, they are getting booed. (Scrappy: "Nobody boos my Uncle Scooby...Aw, they don't know real talent!"). The alien zaps Scooby's heavy metal guitar, which begins playing itself. Scooby winds up in a drum which the alien zaps, and it beats on Scooby. (Scrappy wants to know who's the "punk rocker muscling in on our act"). He next zaps the whole stage, causing all the instruments to play themselves. The crowd loves it, and it is a real blast. At first, Scrappy wants to "give him a taste of puppy power", but then makes friends with him. They have won the contest, and are awarded with a trophy. Scrappy teaches the alien that Scooby is his uncle, and Shaggy is his friend. Wanting to know what such relationships are, he brings the trophy to life, and flies off with it. Says Shaggy: "I think he deserves it more than we do". The trophy shouts "Scooby Dooby Doo!"


The gang is buying hotdogs at a football game between the Hometown Heroes and the Monrovia Monsters. (The hot dogs line up and march, into Shaggy or Scooby's mouth. They "split" the last one: Scooby gets the meat, while Shaggy gets the bread; he never gets wise in this one). One look at their hulking opponents, and the Heroes run off the field. Scrappy volunteers the gang to play against the Monsters. Scooby gets the ball, and he and Shaggy get tackled in the first down. One Monster chases Scooby and he "passes" the ball (running past it). The Monsters get it. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as cheerleaders, cheering the Monsters on, but when Scrappy snatches the ball, they get wise to the trick. Shaggy and Scooby slam into the Monsters, and Scrappy carries them away. Scrappy disguises as a traffic cop, and charges the Monsters with "speeding"; the penalty being 30 days or one football. They make it vanish, and Scappy calls in "Pigskin Scooby", the huge star fullback (Shaggy and Scooby in disguise). Intimidated, the Monsters give up the ball, but then Shaggy and Scooby lose their balance and fall out of the costume and run. They disguise as the band and head for the goal line, but Monsters get wise and pounce on Shaggy and Scooby, causing the ball to be shot out of the tuba for a touchdown. The gang has won tickets to the rest of the season, but Shaggy and Scooby, in the hospital in casts, lament "yeah, if there are any games left by the time we get out of here."


The gang has picked beans for dinner. It begins to rain, and they run into the Mystery Machine, but the pail of beans gets submerged in a puddle. Shaggy tosses them out and says "Maybe we'll dream about food", as they all turn in for the night hungry. As they sleep, a beanstalk grows carrying the Mystery Machine into the sky. Shaggy realizes they were magic beans. They see a huge castle on a cloud, and they are able to slip under the door. Scrappy, on the table, throws down a strand of spaghetti as a rope for the others to climb, and they find "food heaven". Enter the giant who shouts "Fe fi fo fum, I smell the blood of a cowardly dog". Scrappy shouts "nobody calls my uncle Scooby a coward!", and pushes him in the giant's face. He is about to have them for dinner and demands entertainment from his caged bird. When his Groucho Marx routine fails to make him laugh, he scares the poor bird out of his wits. Scrappy challenges, jumping onto the food he was eating, and the giant drops it. Next, they play the shell game under three giant cups, but the giant quickly catches them under the middle one, and demands them to make him laugh. They go into a comedy routine as "the Doos Brothers", and cause even the bird to laugh. The giant is soon asleep, and they run to escape, but Scrappy runs back to rescue the bird, and the cage falls over into the giant's lap, waking him. Scrappy attacks, and they run through the giants head, closing his eyelids like shades. He wakes up again and chases them, but the gang drives down the beanstalk. The giant falls, and the bird tickles him. Says Shaggy: "Leave 'em laughing".


At Camp Kickapoo, Scrappy reads the Pioneer Scoutbook. "A good scout is always cheerful, and never complains about his load". Shaggy and Scooby find this difficult as they are weighed down with camping equipment. To win their camping badges, they have to camp out overnight. Scooby punctures his liferaft, and it flies off, carrying them into the distance, and are now lost. They look for a place to set up camp. Scrappy hopes to run into Bigfoot. Shaggy responds "there's no such thing--at least I hope not". Scooby walks off a cliff, and falls, grabbing onto a branch, and sees Bigfoot in a cliff-side cave. The creature slings him back up to the others, before they could learn to tie a double-bow sheepshank lasso to rescue him. Scooby imitates him to the others by blowing up his foot, but Shaggy doesn't believe him. Scrappy identifies the brush he has landed in as poison ivy, and bandages him up, a bit too much(completely). Shaggy and Scrappy decide to camp there, and go look for firewood. Bigfoot comes along and eats up all the food, right in front of the helpless Scooby. He breaks out of the bandages and runs to tell the others, who not only still don't believe him, but also think he ate the food. Bigfoot appears behind Shaggy and places his hand on his shoulder, as Shaggy repeats that "there is NO Bigfoot!". He now sees him and runs, but Scrappy jumps him ("I got this leg, you grab the other!") Scooby yanks him off and runs. They escape on a canoe, but Bigfoot, hanging from a tree grabs Scooby. The branch breaks, and they fall into the water, and are swept, along with the others, over a fall. At the bottom, they see the scout camp. Bigfoot, now shrunken, walks away. They didn't win the camping badge, but they did win badges for knot tying, map reading, canoeing, first aid, and plant identification. "And", says Scrappy, "we almost caught Bigfoot!".

"Scooby and Scrappy Doo/Puppy Hour" original opening

1982 "Scooby and Scrappy Doo-Puppy Hour". "Puppy" in this case actually refers to Petey the Puppy, which was actually a Ruby-Spears production (they actually began mixing production studios in bundled shows this season!) which began as a series of Afterschool Specials (based originally on a book by Jane Thayer, The Puppy Who Wanted a Boy), and was now given his own weekly series, "The Puppy's New Adventures". With the joint production, different sound effects managed to actually spread into the Scooby episodes!

The 39 Scooby-related episodes are divided evenly into three categories. The most distinct 13 are actually "Scrappy and Yabba Doo", which is a spinoff series that does not include Scooby and Shaggy, who are basically replaced by Scrappy's Uncle Yabba (think of a canine version of Quick Draw McGraw), and his master, the Shaggy-like Deputy Dusty. The dynamic of Yabba, Dusty and Scrappy is similar to Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy, except that Yabba is not cowardly like Scooby.
As a spinoff, these stories are not included in the synopses here.

The remaining 26 Scooby episodes do not have separate designations from each other, but there are distinctly two [unofficial] series' dividing them neatly in half. One group of 13 episodes marks the limited return to the old crime solving format (including a few phony ghosts), which is now justified by Shaggy and the dogs working at the "Fearless Detective Agency" of Shaggy's uncle, where they receive their assignments. As there never was any such organized detective agency called "Mystery Inc.", this is actually the first time there ever was such an agency on the show.
The other 13 basically continue the comedy-only format of the previous two seasons, but now there is a bit more of a people focus, and a definite "teen" theme, as the gang is often at a Teen Center, and gets involved in teenage situations such as tangling with bullies, competitive sports, and even dating. Shaggy is the main focus of this series.

What will be very noticable this season is that Scrappy is starting to be toned down. He still tries to challenge villains, but not nearly as persistently as in the previous three seasons. He sometimes even lets antagonists bully Shaggy and Scooby, and doesn't do much at all. It's becoming less about him now, and starting to become more about Shaggy and Scooby again.

Title screens are the same as last season, but the background music has been updated into a sort of jazzy version of the previous "Scooby Dooby Doo" horn signature, with two more blasts added.


At the Teen Center is the basketball tournament between the Shaggy Sheiks and the Slam Dunkers. As it is, Shaggy's team is worried about being able to beat the hulking opponent team. But for all their physical advantage over the "pipsqueaks", this team still sees the need to cheat, with computer controlled sneakers. They easily leap into the air to score baskets, or block the Sheiks. At halftime, it's 33-0. In the locker room, Scooby sees one player having problems with the sneakers, and runs to tell the others "Rose reaters rot relectronic reakers rown in the rasement!". They go and see Big Ed controlling his miniature computer console. With no time to spare, as the second half is beginning, the gang disguises as janitors with cleaning supplies (Scooby is the mop!) Ed quickly gets wise to it, but Scrappy grabs the machine and runs, and soon, Scooby has it and drops it cracking it in half. Yet the two pieces still work, so Ed grabs one half, and the other half is left to the gang, with "Video Ace Scrappy" controlling it, and grabbing electronic sneakers for players Shaggy and Scooby. Now evenly matched, they are able to tie the game 68-68, but Scrappy's half is shorting out. Scooby is able to ride on Shaggy's shoulders inside his shirt like a super tall player, and gets the ball for the winning basket.


On his way to a costume party, Shaggy appears outside the costume store, as "Super Teen". Jumping up like a super hero, he bumps his head on a large bell, and now thinks he really is Super Teen. He aims to stop a speeding car with one hand, but Scooby and Scrappy use a rope to help him. In the car are some teen friends who tell of a motorcycle gang who has scared them from the party. At the party, Shaggy confronts them. One of the bullies picks him up and throws him into the air. He lands on a sofa bouncing another teen into the bully. The bully next challenges him to arm wrestling. Scooby and Scrappy help, causing Shaggy to win ("three arms are better than one"). Shaggy tosses the bully's helmet, which clangs, changing Shaggy back to himself. They run (grabbing Scrappy who was challenging them), and take off on one of the bullies' choppers. They pursue in another one. Scrappy taps Shaggy's helmet changing him back to Super Teen, and he now chases them, but bumps his head on a tree branch. Scrappy and the bullies repeatedly change Shaggy back and forth, until they wind up in a tree branch on the ground. Shaggy steps out of the chopper and holds the wheels to steady them, but all of them are propelled into the air with Shaggy appearing to be flying, "carrying" both choppers. (One teen comments: "Look, it's a bird...or something!") They land in the pool as everyone cheers. The bullies now serve Shaggy food. He doesn't care much about being a super hero as he does about his "super hero" sandwich, which Scooby now eats.


At a teen science center, Shaggy and Scooby try out their super pizza maker. They get sucked into it and tossed into another kid's experiment, a personality switcher, which switches their personalities. A couple of bullies watch, and figuring it is worth money, promptly swipe it from behind a curtain, before Scrappy has the chance to change Shaggy and Scooby back. They see the bullies take off in a car, and they pursue in the Mystery Machine. Scooby (in Shaggy's body) drives, reasoning that he has a "licence" (dog license, that is), The bullies spill oil on the road, and the gang spins out of control. Shaggy (in Scooby's body) now drives. A malt shop is the bullies' hangout. As they try to figure out how the device works, the gang hides under the table. The bullies hear them, and as Scooby reaches, they replace the contraption with a cat, who Scooby (Shaggy's body) now chases. Next, they disguise as a waiter and take their orders. The bullies soon see four arms and chase them. Scooby has the device and drops it, and it begins switching both Scooby and Shaggy's personalities with both of the bullies. ("This is getting confusing!") Scrappy grabs it and switches them around some more. Shaggy, back to his normal self, mistakenly thinks Scooby is as well, and runs faster when he discovers it's still one of the bullies. They grab onto a chandelier and all four wind up as a giant sundae. Scrappy changes everyone back to normal, and the bullies flee. Shaggy teases Scooby by saying "Scooby Dooby Doo!"


The gang has been hired as teen actors for a new movie, the horror film "I Am A Teenage Monster" at Super Collosal Pictures. In the studio, Von Scareheim the director uses an instant monster ray to turn teens into actual monsters. The gang is watching, but Shaggy still thinks it's "an amazing makeup job". They however, are not to become monsters, but to stay as they are, as the monsters' victims. Shaggy realises they are "real" when he tries to pull off a monster's costume. They run into the dark room and Scrappy blinds Beast Man (who resembles last season's Tenderbigfoot) with a camera flash. Next folows the window gag, Laugh In style (amazing this is the first time it was used in Scooby!) They devise a plan, by disguising as monsters (Shaggy, as Frankenstein, scares himself in the mirror, as does Scooby, as a snow beast) so they can take the monster ray from Von Scareheim. They join the other monsters for dinner, but the food is "barbecued beetlebugs", "spider scallopini" and "toasted toadstools" with a pie of snakes as dessert. They back up and are grabbed by Beast Man who squeezes them out of their costumes. Scrappy uses a camera crane for them to hold onto and grab the ray. The bad guys are getting away, and Scooby uses the ray on Shaggy to turn him into a monster in order to be brave and strong enough to catch them, which he quickly does. Reversing the ray changes the others back (who were unaware of what happened), as well as Shaggy. He asks "Is it over?", and Scooby holds up the clapperboard on which he's written "the End".


Shaggy has made two dates at one, and going with one of the girls, Betty, fears having to deal with the brother (Moose) of the other girl, Lucy. His plan is to dress Scooby up as Shaggy's cousin (complete with a glued on goatee) and have him date Lucy while he dates Betty. Having her glasses out to be fixed, she won't tell. It works (even as Scooby greets her by licking her hand). However, as they get ready to drive off, her brother shows up with her glasses, and notices she's dating a dog. He follows them to the amusement park, and as the girls and Scrappy ride the rollercoaster, Moose confronts Scooby and Shaggy, and the chase continues onto the rollercoaster. Scrappy ties Moose's suspenders to the seat allowing them to escape. They take the girls to eat, and when Scooby spills all the food (Lucy still expresses liking him!), he and Shaggy go to get more and encounter Moose. Scooby hides under the table, and Shaggy tries to flatter Moose by saying Scooby just "looks like a dog", because "not everyone can be as handsome as you, sir!" While they're talking, Scooby's tail is sticking up, and Shaggy is forced to try to hide it by making a hot dog with it. He's managed to convince him, but when he doesn't eat it, Moose takes it and bites it ("He IS a dog! Why you!") and the chase resumes, into a cage which turns out to be the dunk tank. They don't think Lucy could hit the bullseye, but the ball bounces and does hit it, plunging the three males into the water. He now brings them to Lucy and gives her her glasses, and her response, "Well, nobody's perfect", and kisses Scooby.


At a carnival, Shaggy is working as a fortune teller, but doesn't know how to tell fortunes. A teen couple comes in, and all the bully boyfriend, Arby wants is to win every prize in the carnival for the girl. (Scooby is under the table, and his head appears in distorted form in the crystal ball). Having been instructed to always give good fortunes, they "predict" he will win. However, the aggressive Arby holds Shaggy up to this and says if he doesn't win, "You'll win a trip to the hospital". ("If his future doesn't come true, I don't have a future!") So now, the gang has to go throughout the carnival from game to game (in disguise) helping him win. At the strength tester, they fashion a rocket to it, but it goes off before he even swings, carrying Scooby and Scrappy into the sky and crashing into a ride. Next is winning 10 seconds in the ring with the Masked Mangler. They realize they have to get someone to replace him, and Shaggy suggests "someone with four legs, spots...", and imitates Scooby's laugh. Scooby wears the Mangler's costume while he's on break, and they use helium to make him look muscular. Scooby is able to float for half of the time, avoiding him, but Arby manages to grab him, and as he deflates, they fly around the tent, and he flattens him in the canvas. Scooby is shot out of the costume, hitting the bell marking time up. (Shaggy changes "$100 Prize" to "$1.00") The girl flatters him, and he "quits winning". As they eat at the hot dog stand, Shaggy has quit the "swami salami stuff" ("It's all a bunch of baloney!" Get it?")
Scooby wears the swami hat and levitates Shaggy's hot dog into his mouth. "With Uncle Swami Scooby, anything is possible!"

This is one where you really wish Scrappy would step up and challenge the bully, like he always did in previous seasons. He not once says anything to him, and is pretty much in the background, and the story is about Shaggy. This shows Scrappy is clearly mellowing down.


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are on a beach having a picnic. What Scooby thinks is a soda bottle is actually a genie bottle. When he shakes it, a female genie, Jasmine, and her poodle Genie Poo appear out of it. Genie Poo likes Scooby and zaps him with a love spell, and then the genies take off with him to find the museum where they can find the spell that will take them back to ancient Arabia. Scooby doesn't want to go, and just as Shaggy realizes they get three wishes for freeing her, she causes the beach umbrella to close on them, and takes off on a magic carpet. Shaggy and Scrappy pursue in the Mystery Machine, but the radiator overheats. When Scrappy says they can only catch them with a plane or hot air balloon, Shaggy brilliantly creates one with an inner tube he inflates with steam from the radiator. They are able to grab Scooby midair, but the genie creates a magical hand which deflates the tube and Scooby lands back on the carpet, leaving Shaggy and Scrappy intertwined on a flagpole. Shaggy tells the genie "I wish we could trade places", forgetting he had three wishes. So he and Scrappy are now on the magic carpet, and the genies and Scooby are on the flagpole --which is on the museum they were looking for. The genie finds the spell, but Scooby hides in a dinosaur skeleton. Genie Poo zaps him and not only does he fall in love again, but he also attacks Shaggy and Scrappy who flew in through a window to his rescue. Shaggy "wishes" Scooby wouldn't act that way, using his second wish. Genie Poo grabs Scooby with her tail and they disappear back to the beach to look for the bottle. The others follow on the carpet, and Scrappy "wishes" Shaggy could land it safely, using their last wish. They make one last attempt to grab Scooby, but the genies take him and read the formula, and a flash is seen off screen. Shaggy and Scrappy cry over Scooby, Shaggy saying he loves him more than a pepperoni pizza--with cheese. But Scooby is still there, having escaped from the genies.


At a teen picnic, Scrappy enters the gang into a marathon Shaggy and Scooby didn't want to participate in. The first contest is the sack race. A bully, Buster, and his bulldog, Bull are planning their cheating spree. Shaggy and Scooby hide in a sack that is part of the race. All the other contestants fall into booby traps set by the bully pair, leaving only the gang, who is hopped into the race alongside the bullies by Scrappy. The bullies threaten to "bend you, twist you, tie you into knots", and the running gag is them tying an imaginary dotted line. Shaggy and Scooby try to hop the other way, but with Scrappy still pulling forward, they are only snapped across the finish line first. (The bullies tie the imaginary line). Shaggy and Scooby want to quit, but now the bully won't let them until he beats them back. The next event is the tug of war. The dog uses a winch to aid his master, but Scrappy sees it, and messes up the scheme, causing the boy to be pulled into the mud. Shaggy and Buster are now tied 7-7. The next contest is an obstacle course. Buster threatens "if they win..." Shaggy and Scooby, fearing their fate, now tie the line themselves! They want to lose, but Scrappy says "We didn't come this far to lose". Buster cuts a climbing rope and the gang falls, and Bull puts glue in the tires, catching Scooby's legs, but he is then "driven" like a four wheeled vehicle, and floats in water, passing the bullies. They all now have to swing across a gorge to win. Scrappy ties the gang with the rope, but the bullies get tangled up with them too. The dog cuts the wrong rope, and he and his master fall into the gorge. The gang wins the trophy, but Scooby worries about being tied into knots by the bully. But it's Bull, carrying Buster to the hospital, who now realizes that that is his fate when he gets out.

Another one where Scrappy is surprisingly silent at the strong threats to the gang. (Even as he gets and keeps them in trouble with the bully).


At the beach, strongman Muscles Malone shows off holding a "human pyramid". Nearby Shaggy bounces off a volleyball net, crashing into the pyramid, which he now holds, and drops. Muscles and his dog Brutus (the bulldog from Scooby's Swiss Miss, and Strongman Scooby) attack Shaggy and Scooby for showing them up. Shaggy pleads "couldn't we settle this another way?", and the bullies agree to a sail boat race to Dead man's Cove, but begin the race by leaving the gang's anchor line tied to the pier. The bullies change a "danger" sign to say it leads to the island. The gang gets caught in a storm, and has to bail out the boat, and then crash over rocks, (including a loop-de-loop formation) soaring through the sky. Malone disguises as a swordfish and punctures holes in the boat, which Scooby plugs up with every paw and tail. He is next sent down into the water to catch the swordfish, and uses a net like a bullfighter's cape. He causes a large clam to catch him and the bully is catapulted back up to his boat ("Cheaters never prosper!"). They think they see the island, and the bullies speed on to it (cheating with an outboard motor), but it is a whale. The gang rescues them with ropes, but they are all thrown off by the whale's tail. They land on the island, the bullies in tow, the gang winning the race. Muscles' girlfriend Trixie, commenting on how Shaggy beat him at both speed boating and weightlifting, tosses him a barbell. As Shaggy brags, he sinks into the sand.

The third appearance of the bullying bulldog, first introduced in Scooby's Swiss Miss. The Picnic Poopers dog comes close as well, except for the coloring and spots.


The gang is having a picnic, and Scrappy is reading about flying saucers, which he finds interesting. (Shaggy thinks it's "a lot of baloney", and Scooby adds, "Yeah, baloney, and ham, and roast beef", as he shuffles the lunch meat and deals it out. As they speak, a flying saucer lands behind a tree, and only Scrappy sees it. The three aliens are on an intergalactic scavenger hunt, which includes "two earth sandwiches", "one earth basket", "one earth pair of pants" (Shaggy's), and "one earth vehicle" (the Mystery Machine). They zap these things with their ray, taking possession of them. As they drive off, the gang rides the back of the Mystery Machine. They enter the drive-in theatre, playing "Teenage Aliens from Outer Space". Here, they continue their list: "One earth romantic couple". To stop them, Scrappy has Scooby dress up as Shaggy's girlfriend. Scrappy sticks gum into their ray guns, encasing them in a bubble that floats off, but pops, and they fall and then find a couple to zap, into the Mystery Machine. The next thing is a pair of ice skaters. The gang skates (as bait), but the aliens still get two other skaters. The last thing is "a dog called a Great Dane". Scooby pretends to be a donkey, but they are not fooled. They zap the ice under the gang, causing them to fall into freezing water, and grab Scooby out of it and take him to their ship. Shaggy and Scrappy follow, and Scooby, with his teeth chattering from still being encased in ice, accidentally bites Shaggy, who yells, alerting the aliens. Shaggy finds a futuristic hockey stick, and uses the frozen Scooby as the puck, bowling the aliens over, and Scrappy nets them. They give up and promise never to return to earth. Shaggy drives out, not realizing they're already in space. As the Mystery Machine parachutes back to earth, they decide to continue their picnic, except that the food floats and hits Shaggy in the face. ("I guess the dessert's on me!")

The third episode title these past three seasons to play upon the "Close Encounters" movie! The plot is fairly similar to the last such story, "Close Encounters of a Strange Kind", where aliens captured Shaggy.


At the teen center, the gang finishes building their airplane, a propellered car. They start it up, and soon hear cries for help, and see down in a valley, a caveman chasing a cavegirl and her pet dinosaur. They now realize that they've created a time machine that has taken them back into the prehistoric past, and go to help. The girl, Dula kisses Shaggy, and the dinosaur likes Scooby. They take them home, but while the hosts and Scrappy have a good time in the den, Shaggy and Scooby have to do dirty chores. The caveman, Wonga comes in and snatches Dula, and takes off with her on a pterodactyl to his cave where she is caged. The gang goes after them on the dinosaur, then Scooby is catapulted across the gorge and lands in the pterodactyl's nest, disguised as a hatching baby bird. The other nestlings are suspicious, but the mother takes him in her arms, yet he escapes. Inside the cave, the gang tiptoes past the sleeping Wonga, but Scooby's tail gets caught in his legs. Wonga, still half asleep, thinks it's Dula, and tries to kiss "her", but Scooby gives him a fish. He attacks Scrappy with a club and Scrappy "puts his foot down" on his, while the others escape with Dula. They slide down the back of a big dinosaur, and land in water. Wonga follows, but can't swim. They rescue him and make him apologize to Dula, who now decides she likes him, and carries him off on her back. Shaggy confesses he never could understand girls. Taking off in the time machine, Shaggy hopes they'll be back to the present in time for lunch, but Scooby is enjoying the giant prehistoric fruit.


Shaggy has "hillbilly" relatives, the "Shagbillies" in the country mountains. He's driving the others to see his cousin Betty Lou (he shows a baby picture of the two of them) for the annual Shagbilly Hoedown. They arrive at Shagbilly Manor (a small country house), and are observed by the rival McGurk family, who send a swarm of bees after Shaggy, and the hive lands on Scooby. He and Scooby run, and Scooby hides in a lake, but the bees form a question mark, a light bulb, and then a bone shape, which Scooby leaps out and gulps, then expels on his tongue and runs. The bees now form an arrow to stick him with. Scrappy gets rid of the bees by tossing the hive, which lands on the McGurks. Shaggy asks Bety Lou: "What was that, a grizzly bear?" and she explains the McGurk's have been feuding with the Shagbillies ever since she turned down Bubba McGurk (one of the bullies) for the Hoedown dance. The reason, because he won't take a bath. As the speak, he shoots a note onto a post "Ah hates Baths!" He then adds that any Shagbilly who tries to make him take one, "gets crushed into cornmeal mush!" If one could give him a bath, that would stop the feuding. With all her cousins getting ready for the hoedown, that leaves Shaggy, who's already hiding in the rain water barrel.
First, they pump a rubber cow full of soapy water, and Shaggy and Scooby arrive in disguise at the McGurk's door selling "moo juice". Bubba hates milk, but loves chocolate milk. Milking the cow fills the pail with the water, but Scooby trips and the pail lands on Shaggy's head, blowing his cover when removed. He and Scooby jump onto the cow, which bursts, rocketing them onto a windmill which dumps them into a junk pit. They use the windmill blades to create a "bike-a-copter" (like in "the Curse of Viking Lake") and go through a clothes line, and a hay pile. They hover over Bubba's house and Scooby is to go down the chimney and tie a rope around Bubba's feet, so they can lift him and dump him into the lake. (We get something we actually haven't seen or heard in awhile: "Would you do it for a Scooby Snack?"!) As he does it and tiptoes away, the sleeping Bubba wakes and places the rope around Scooby's feet, but Scooby then grabs him by the legs, and both are carried away. Bubba grabs onto a tree, causing the rope to break, and Bubba lands in the wash basin Betty Lou is using ("When you're clean, you're kind of handsome!" He blushes!) Says Shaggy, "I always knew Bubba McGurk would come clean in the end!"


The gang is getting paid to housesit at 1313 Gargoyle Steet, a classic spooky mansion. Just like "A Fit Night Out For Bats", Scrappy goes in, and only a lightning bolt zap causes Shaggy and Scooby to follow. (When Shaggy tells Scooby that "lightning never strikes twice", then a bolt hits him!) Scrappy is behind a door in a werewolf disguise. "I think that was the last scare Scooby could take", as he's now stiff as a board. They look at various potions on a shelf in the basement, and "Grandma Wolfbane's hair conditioner" is worth a try. It brings him back, "hunky dory", but Shaggy reads on the label, not to use during a full moon. Scooby looks out the window, and the clouds uncover a full moon, and he turns into a werewolf. Shaggy runs, carrying Scrappy but Scooby changes back and forth quickly when the moon is covered or uncovered (just like Shaggy in "Moonlight Madness"), but not when the others see. Shaggy goes to hide at a party, and two teens, Lance and Bulldog see the werewolf, and at first think it's someone playing a joke, but when he changes back, under a tablecloth, they realize "He's the real McCoy", and worth a fortune if they capture him! They try to slip a sack over him and the gang runs back into the house (and explain to Scooby that he's the werewolf!) They find the instructions for the antidote, and are making it in the basement lab. The teens, having called the news reporter, are watching and know they have to stop him from drinking the antidote. Scooby just sniffs it and turns green. The two kids enter and grab Scooby. They can't find the front door, and Scooby direct them to a closet. He's in a big boot and kicks them, and they chase the boot, and Shaggy catches him, but he turns into the werewolf, and Shaggy tosses him and runs. Shaggy and Scrappy have climbed to the roof, and when the werewolf pops out of the chimney, Shaggy drops the antidote, which pours down the drain pipe into the rain water barrel. The werewolf picks up the chimney, and changes a couple more times and falls into the barrel right as the boys show the reporters. When they see "just an ordinary dog", and the moonlinght no longer changes him, the angry reporters and others now pursue the two teens.

A voice we haven't heard in some time! Lance is played by Jerry Dexter, best known as Alan on Josie.

"The Fearless Detective Agency"


Scooby could not stay off of crimefighting for long! The gang is now working for Shaggy's uncle, Fearless Shagofurth, at his Fearless Detective Agency. We start with the gang scrubbing floors in the office, but Shaggy would rather do that than get a telephone call from Uncle Fearless, which means detective work (which Scrappy, gleefully answering, says he loves). Shaggy says he wouldn't take the case if the most beautiful girl walked in, which she does. Now Shaggy is willing ("No job's too big! No job's too small!"), but she says the job is "dangerous". Two "nasty men" have been follwing her, trying to get their hands on the package, the Maltese Mackerel, which is worth millions. They have to deliver it to the captain of the freighter SS Buoyant at the dock. As they start walking the package, the two crooks drive up in a car, and then chase Scrappy up to a roof and through a building. The fire escape ladder breaks while Shaggy and Scooby are climbing, forming a bridge to the next building for Scrappy. The ladder can hold a lot of weight, but when the bigger crook crosses; "not that much!" and all three fall. The Peter Lorre-like smaller crook gets the package from Scrappy and the crooks take off in the car. Scooby follows their trail to the warehouse. They use slippery fish as skates to grab the mackerel back. Scrappy paints a crate "SS Buoyant", and then he and the gang jumps into the real crate (filled with real mackerel) bound for the ship. The crooks jump into the other crate, hoisted to the police boat. Problem is, the gang can't find the Maltese Mackerel among the whole crate of fish and have to dig through the whole thing!

The introduction to the "Fearless" series, where Shaggy's uncle's full name is given, along the premise of their work at his agency established.

The last three minutes of the story, from where they skate on the fish, uses 1969 score, which had been totally unused for four years by now. Two other episodes will also use it. The series is really starting to get nostalgic, and more things will return in coming seasons!

This crook pair will appear again in the following seasons, and are similar to "Mr. Greenway and Leach" from the original series "That Snow Ghost"


An insurance company has hired the Fearless Detective Agency to find stolen gold coins. The only clue the gang has is special burger sauce, which they trace to Hamburger Haven. They decide to go undercover by getting jobs there making burgers. Scooby turns the burger assembly belt too fast, causing them to be pelted with the food, while the crooked men, in a store room they told the gang to stay out of, are hiding the coins in the burgers. They come out and order the gang to put every last burger back together. Shaggy then begins suspecting that the coins might be in the burgers. They hide Scrappy in a burger sack so he can see what's going on in the room. They see him running back to tell the gang and give chase. Scrappy challenges, and the gang hides in the truck the crooks take off in. At the airport, they load up a plane and take off, but Scooby grabs the tail and guides the plane through a restaurant, and then into a storm pipe, trapping them. The Insurance man arrives at the Fearless office, and is surprised to be handed a box of hamburgers. Scooby 'eats' all of the coins free.


The gang is closing Uncle Fearless's for lunch, when Ms Earth Beauty Pageant contestant Ms Bulgravia (dressed only in a bathing suit) enters and tells them of the disappearances of the other contestants by some "big huge awful thing". Scrappy accepts the case. To get Shaggy into the contest, he is disguised as "Ms Antarctica" (he chooses to be a redhead over a blonde). Backstage, he is quickly snatched by the creature ("I'm no girl; girls don't have beards!") Scrappy and Scooby go after them, and they all slide down the laundry chute. Scooby and Scrappy land in a sink and see Shaggy and all of the contestants in cages. Scrappy pours detergent into the sink, sending Scooby floating up on a bubble to free Shaggy. They hide under a food cart, and trap the creature in an elevator. Ms Bulgravia appears saying "I didn't think you meddlers could do it", frees the creature (Bruno) and sends him after them, revealing that she is trying to win the reward for herself. Shaggy and Scooby ride on stage lights, and finally lasso both Bruno and Ms Bulgravia, just as she was about to be crowned Ms Earth. Scrappy messes the both of them up with makeup ("That takes care of beauty and the beast") The gang is rewarded with kisses from all of the contestants.

•The cutest story of the season, the episode contains some original 1969 score


At the Fearless office, the gang is sleeping on the job, and awaken by a call to go to the birthday party of Bugsy Burton the gangster who's suspected of stealing diamonds (Scooby sounds off "that's good";"that's bad"... to every piece of information relayed. When the food is mentioned, he takes the case). Outside the mansion, they see all the gangsters going inside, and realize they have to go undercover. (Scooby literally places a cover over his head. "Very unfunny, Scooby!") They sneak through an arriving gangster's car and come out as gangsters themselves, "Nyah, nyah, Big Shaggy, from Detroit", "Little Scrappy, from Chicago", and Scooby is just "Scooby Dooby Doo"(!) The guy at the door questions there being dogs in Bugsy's mob ("It's the latest thing; no gangster should be without one!") When asked what Scooby can do, "He's the greatest pickpocket this side of Poughkeepsie". To prove it, he swipes the man's suspenders from under his clothes, causing his pants to fall. He chases them inside, and Mugsy enters and mentions the diamonds being hidden in the freezer. Shaggy opens it, and finds a "fortune"— of food. Scooby falls in, and comes out with an ice tray, containing the diamonds! Now disguised as waiters, they try to sneak them out in the punch, but Bugsy demands a drink. Scooby hides it in his clothes ("Rhat runch?") and Bugsy says "give it to me, or I'll give you this 'punch'!" He hands it to him, and Scrappy tugs at it with him, falls into it, and he scoops him out and tosses him to the others, demanding they get his birthday cake. Shaggy and Scooby are inside the cake and slip under the table with a map of where everything is, including the punch bowl. After a few unsuccessful tries of cutting a hole under it, they finally get the diamonds and run off with them. (Scrappy grabs Bugsy by the necktie and tries to place everyone under arrest, but Scooby grabs him away). They chase around the house and end up sliding on a door the gangsters knocked down, crashing near the gardening tools. Scooby cuts hedges in the shape of the gang for them to pounce on, and Scrappy ties them up with the hose. "That ought to tie up the Bugsy Burton Gang for awhile, huh guys? Nyah! Nyah!"


At the comic book convention, Shaggy is finally happy with an assignment from Uncle Fearless; to read comics, and guard them too. Slime Boy #1 is rare and worth a fortune. (As Shaggy notes "Comic book fans are sure weird; huh, Scoob?", Scooby is reading "Rocky the Wonder horse" while wearing a horse head). Mr. Bixby, owner of the Slime Boy comic and Mr. Morley, the convention manager introduce themselves. Two hours before closing, Slime Boy emerges from the poster of him near the comic and steals his own comic! They apprehend one Slime Boy, but it's really an old lady, who clobbers them with her umbrella. The real Slimeboy is heading for the elevator. They run up the stairs and drop Scooby down from a balcony on a rope. ("Why me?" "Because, ya got roped into it!" "Oh!") As he is lowered out of view, we see "BAM", "WHAM", "BANG", comic book style. They pull up Slime Boy instead and drop him. Scooby is wrapped up in the rope in the elevator, and bites onto the rope the others are holding and swipes the comic with his tail. Slime Boy climbs the wall on suction cups. They run into the comic exhibit and he stuffs the exhibit they're hiding in into the trash, and makes off with the comic. They follow footprints to a closet. Shaggy tries the old "Heads I win, tails you lose" trick from first season "Which Witch is Which?" but this time, Scooby tries to get wise, and reverses it to "Heads you win, tails I lose" (the same sort of "pronoun trouble" Bugs Bunny used to trick Daffy Duck with, where he's the one saying it! So, it ends up as "Tails, I lose") He opens the door and fights Slime Boy, but it's only a costume. It seems now that he's out of costume, they'll never find him, but a clue has been left, a blue button. They disguise as Rocky the Wonder Horse (with Scrappy as a cowboy) and approach a guy with blue suspenders (which they snap, dropping his pants), but the buttons don't match. Mr. Morley enters, and the button is from his jacket! He runs (and has the comic). Scrappy corners him upstairs, and he jumps out the window and lands on the others, still as the horse ("THUD") and rides, until he is bucked off into the police station (one of the officers then enjoys the comic, his favorite). The other officer asks "Who was that horse"? As they gallop off into the moonlight, "HI HO, SCOOBY DOO, AWAY!"

After three years, we've now returned to the classic mystery format of the fake ghost who's really one of the people we met earlier and we didn't expect! (Although they don't "unmask" him, he just reappears without the disguise but is identified from the "clue", which of course is another central element of the old format). We will see this a few times more this season, and this cute "mini-mystery" format, with a lot of nice new comedic ideas (the sound effect text gag, Scooby's comic character, etc.) is a preview of what's coming in the next two seasons!


Uncle Fearless has sent the gang to a gypsy camp. Roth, queen of the gypsies tells them someone is about to steal her power, which rests in her amulet. A shadow is seen in the curtain behind her, and she won't let Shaggy talk. It's Miklos, who had been banished from the camp, and he grabs it from beind the curtain, and takes it for his revenge, and jumps out the window. The gang goes after him, and he uses the amulet to magically chain up the gang. Scooby tries to reach the key with his tongue, and a bird who thinks it's a bigger worm, pulls it to his nest, stretching it to be long enough. They free themselves and disguise as gypsies to sneak up on Miklos. He's in a circle of other gypsies around a fire pronouncing himself as their new king. The gang does a gypsy dance around him and swipes the amulet. They run, but realize that they don't need to, with the amulet. (We see Shaggy and Scooby standing in aggressive poses that are highly unusual for them). Shaggy can't think of a curse to lay on him, so he is able to grab it back. They take off on a horse-drawn wagon, and he changes the horse into a giant toad. The gang is trapped by a 10,000 foot drop and he changes the gang into "their true selves"; the animals that match their character. The cowering Shaggy and Scooby are "chicken-hearted", but what he didn't count on, was that Scrappy was "lion-hearted". He calls "lion power" and chases the gypsy, and Shaggy and Scooby help him by flying with a log, which they trap him with, and Scrappy grabs the amulet. (They then remember that chickens can't fly and fall!) Roth changes them back to normal, but Shaggy and Scooby still cluck like chickens!


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are assigned aboard a flight, disguised as old ladies, to deliver a gem to Uncle Fearless, protecting it from Fingers Malone, a notorious jewel thief. Shaggy reads his descriptions, which fit perfectly to a man sitting near Scooby, even down to his never smiling. (Scooby shapes his mouth into a smile). The man grabs the gem and escapes out the side hatch with a parachute. The gang runs out after him (Scooby grabs a passenger's food), and realizes in midair that they didn't have a parachute. They use Scooby's dress as one, "skirting" disaster. On the ground, they hide in a bush and sneak up on the thief on a footbridge. The thief, on the other side, shakes it by the ropes, tangling up the gang mid-span. What's worse, a bear comes and sits on top of them. When they try to rock him to sleep, the bridge snaps and they land on floating logs, with the bear and Scooby on one log. He jumps onto the others' log and they escape. They find the thief in a sawmill, and after a tussle (seen by shadows on a wall) the man locks them in a room. Scrappy brags about how easily they can get out and catch him, and he then ties them to logs on a belt to be sawed. (Shaggy: "You and your big mouth!"). Scooby is able to pull the switch with his tail, and the three chew through the ropes. Prepared for their escape, the thief has set a booby trap, which Scooby trips releasing a large boulder that follows the gang running down a slope. They wind up on top of it, and it lands on the truck the thief was escaping in, and he gives up. Back at the office, Scooby has some "rocks" in a box, but Shaggy does not want to see another rock. But it's rock candy, which Scooby eats.

Causing them to be tied to the log with his bragging is the worst thing Scrappy has ever done!


At Uncle Fearless', they are having lunch, and Johnathan Johns the TV producer enters saying he needs detectives because someone is trying to close down his show, and its star, Captain Canine has been dognapped and the crooks are demanding a million dollars for his return. He sees Scooby and says he could be Captain Canine's double. This gives them the idea to use him to finish the show, and lure out the dognapper. At the TV studio, Scooby begins playing Captain Canine's parts, with Shaggy also in disguise (as a gorilla) to grab the dognapper. As the scene starts, the caped crook sees the plot, and releases a real gorilla, who first scares Shaggy, and then fools Scooby, who of course think he's Shaggy, until the real Shaggy shows up. ("This is what we get for monkeying around with detective work!") They konk him on the head with coconuts from a tree. The crook then chases them himself, and they go out on rowboats, but the gang gets eaten by a huge mechanical shark. Scooby now calls "ta da da da dada, tail power!" and uses it to try to activate a switch, but it breaks and the shark begins moving and crashes. Scooby sniffs out Captain Canine, who is at the top of a tall clock tower. They use a scaffold, but the crook cuts the cable, and then saws the flagpole they grab onto, but they bounce off of an awning and land back in the room where they have Captain Canine, who they free. Both caped dogs go after the crook, and start the clock gears, spinning the arms and catching him. Umnasked, he is Mr. Johnson the producer. Captain Canine was inside the clock, so the one who really caught him, was: Scooby Dooby Doo!

So now, we have a classic unmasked crook!


The gang is cleaning Uncle Fearless' office and Ms. Higgins from the Harbor Bay Yach Club enters, reporting their yachts being robbed by the Catfish Burglar. On a yacht, they hide in a photo, and use jewels as bait. The Catfish Burglar quickly comes and swipes them. Scrappy tries to net him, but instead catches the fish they were posing with. On deck, Shaggy pushes Scooby in a life tube and he grabs them, but goes overboard. Scrappy tosses him an inflatable life raft, but Scooby swallows it. and inflates it, floating lke a balloon, escaping the burglar's assistant waiting on a surfboard. He deflates and Shaggy catches him and they run and hide in a closet, with Scooby disguised as a diver until a fish in a bowl bites his tail. He still has the jewels, but the lights go out, and then they are gone. The burglar runs and jumps over onto the windsurfer. They take another board, and use Shaggy's longjohns as a sail and go after the crooks. Scooby takes a sleeping fisherman's rod ("Be right back!") and grabs onto the crooks's sail, but they attach the line to a rock, which propels them onto land. They follow footprints to a lighthouse, and the crooks are in the tower. They pole vault through the tower and swipe the jewels, and land in water, and now have to catch the thieves. Scrappy lassoes them with seaweed. The catfish burglar is the woman who hired them, Ms. Higgins! She confesses thinking it was the best way to avoid suspicion. "Just goes to show you. You can't judge a crook by his or her cover!"

Another one with the classic unmasked crook


The Cat Lady strikes again, using her assortment of cats, big and small to help her rob jewelry stores. Scooby and the gang, at Uncle Fearless's, trace the pattern of her burglaries, which outlines a cat's head. One eye is missing, which is the Hoffman Jewelers, located directly above the detective agency. Afraid, Scooby goes to pull the shade down, and ends up pulling the lion's tail; the crime already in progress! They confront the Cat Lady, and she sics her "scraggly alley cat" on them. Scooby tussles with it in a trash can, and the Cat Lady takes off in a helicopter. The gang grabs on to it and is transported to a tree near her hideout. They are attacked by a black panther on a limb, and escape by jumping into the upper window. There they see that she controls the cats with a hypnotic bracelet. Scrappy devises a plan to take the bracelet and gain control of the cats. First, he lures the lion away by snatching away his steak with fishing line. The second part of the plan is "very dangerous, and requires a large dog". Calling "Ruppy rower!", Scooby tries to stretch Scrappy into a tall size, but is nevertheless disguised as the lion. He manages to get the bracelet off the Cat Lady's wrist, but she grabs the phony lion's tail tassel, gets wise and sics the little cat on Scooby, and the black panther on Shaggy and Scrappy. Scooby leads the little cat under a rug, and traps it in a vacuum cleaner, then goes to help the others. In the kitchen, they find sacks of dry milk and create a flood of milk. Scrappy has the bracelet again and calls the cats who now lick the Cat Lady, who is covered in milk. Scooby shouts "Scooby Dooby ROWR!"


The gang is driving to their next assignment, to Abbott's Car Lot where Pistons McGee, the car thief is going to strike next. In the lot, they place a "for sale" sign on the Mystery Machine to lure him. (In the dashboard, they have "what every stakeout should have: steaks!" —along with shakes, fries and lots of hot dogs). They fall asleep and the thief, who has a shrinking ray, shrinks most of the cars down to small size and scoops them up in his arm, taking them to his gas station, to restore them to normal size to sell. The gang wakes, with Shaggy dreaming they were in a giant's hand. Scooby sees they are, and Shaggy tries to go back to sleep ("Wake me when it's over") and Scrappy realizes it's the car thief. The tiny Scrappy still tries to challenge him, and Scooby grabs him right before McGee plucks him with his finger. They drive up into his clothes and on top of his head. He grabs them again, and Scooby squirts windshield fluid in his face. They drive down to the floor and run into a mouse hole (which they think is a "tunnel"). They find cheese, and a "giant" rat. They run in the cheese, and Scooby eventually eats it. The thief is in the garage and restores the Mystery Machine to normal size and plans to paint it, put on new plates and put it up for sale. The gang, hiding in a toolbox sees the ray gun and realizes what is going on, and uses springs to reach the gun, but Scooby ends up in McGee's shirt pocket. Shaggy and Scrappy spring into action to rescue him, and he now threatens to shrink them further ("into nothingness") but Scrappy grabs onto the lube oil squirt handle, which sprays the oil, causing him to fall onto a dolly, which they tie him up on, to take to the police.
Back at the office, the gang is back to normal size, with Uncle Fearless himself, and the shrunken cars. Scooby restores the cars to normal size —in the office, and the entire building has cars sticking out of the windows.

Fearless Shagofurth (typical "Shaggy with more facial hair" relative) makes his sole appearance


The Fearless Detectives are transporting a bratty rich kid, Wilbur by snowmobile ("Can't this crummy piece of tin go any faster?") He has to get to his Uncle Cosgrove's chalet by midnight, then Cousin Sherwood, or Aunt Gracie will inherit his fortune. He jokes about a "scary rumor about the abominable smowman" who's right behind them ("Made you look!" "Silly bozos, there's no such thing as an abominable snowman"!) but there is, in fact an abominable snowman, in a tree, who now leaps down onto the back of the snowmobile, and now, no one believes him about it. It lunges at him and falls off, and rolls a boulder after them, which they also don't believe at first. They end up going off the ski jump and crash into a snow bank. Scooby has to blow with all his might to keep the boulder (which is now a snowball) suspended ("It's a matter of life and breath!") but it still buries them in snow. They now see the snowman, who throws a boulder on them, catapulting them up where he grabs the boy and skiis off. Scrappy realizes he's no snow creature, because he's left sneaker prints. They run after him, and now Scooby turns into a snowball that captures Shaggy and Scrappy and crashes them into a fence. The fence planks become skis for them, and then a jump for the snowman and Scrappy, who lands on them. Shaggy and Scooby now slide in the snow ("Downsie daisy!") and manage to free both Scrappy and Wilbur. They land and have ditched the snow monster, with Cogrove's chalet in view. However, Scooby is frozen in a block of ice. They push him into the chalet and thaw him, and are waiting for the lawyer to show up. The snowman enters from behind a bookcase and grabs Wilbur. Rotating the bookcase several times, they get him back and hide in a bed. The snowman follows, and a tussle ensues under the cover. They eventually get out and trap the snowman, who is Cousin Sherwood ("I deserve the fortune more than you, you bite size brat!") The lawyer hands him the deed; "Ah, it's all in a day's work!" The gang thinks they're finally rid of him, but he reminds them "We're going to have fun on the way back!"

Another classic mystery-style story!

The animators probably forgot that the snowball rolling after them was supposed to be a boulder


The gang is unpacking stolen china at the Fearless office. They hear on the radio a story that one of the city's two remaining cable cars is missing, with all the passengers aboard it, and that the mayor is hiring the Fearless Detective Agency to solve the bizarre crime. (Scooby balances all the china, then loses his balance, catches it again, but misses a cup, which he then catches, losing all the plates). They ride the only car left, and the operator is actually the thief, Bruno, who takes it through a secret ramp in the street to the old underground city. There, they see the other cable car and the people, and the man brings the car to his boss, Vandetta, who tells of the plan, where they are waiting for the safecrackers working above, so they can fill the cable cars with gold bouillions. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as safe-crackers "Dogface Marcello" and his assistant "Goatface Shaggy". They try to stall the crooks, so Scrappy can net them, but the safe opens, leaving the bouillions to spill out on top of them and under Scrappy. He tries to "arrest" them, and Shaggy and Scooby grab him and run. They disguise as soda jerks in the ice cream parlor, and serve him 100 year old ice cream ("rocky road" is really "dusty road", and the cherry on top is really a spider). They hide, and the crooks take off with the cable car. They follow on a hand car, and Scooby, as a switchman directs them onto a fake track he's laying as he runs, which is to head to the police station. Instead, he runs out, and over a cliff. The cable car goes over and lands on rocks in the ocean(!), trapping them ("Well, that's one way to track down gold thieves!")
Back at the office, they've glued back together the china, and have worked up an appetite. Scooby brings in a cake, but some fog rolls in, and he crashes with it, and cuts a hole in the fog, with cake on his face. "Scooby dooby yum!"

As with a part of "A Frightened Hound Meets Demons Underground" from six years earlier, the animators apparently at some point forgot it was supposed to be an underground city, and we see, once again, an outdoor (above ground) night time scene, including a starry sky, mountains, and this time, even an ocean!
