  • An Adventure!

    3 ghosts!! You'd think with 3 very classic ghosts and a very solid plot that this would be the very best episode of "Scooby-Doo Where are You!" out there...but for some reason it isn't. This ticks all the right boxes for everything. Great Monsters, plot and setting. A Werewolf, Frankenstein and A Vampire...all very Classic, a Creepy Castle for a setting and a Jewel Smuggling plot. All very Classic too and that might be the problem here. This episode has nothing original in it, everything has been done before! I do really like it though, I think it is not ultimately great! It is an extremely gullible episode with a lot of fun and adventure thrown in. Not a Fantastic episode i would say but definitely not one of the worst of the series. Adventurous!!! 8.5/10moreless

    Werewolf sees the gang and growls. They see a fortune teller and decide to stop in. She warns them of evil forces and to stay away. The gang leaves worried, but they continue on their way to Franken Castle. They see that it's locked, so they decide to look around. The drawbridge comes down and they can finally go in. They see a vampire who warns them to leave. The drawbridge starts going up and they all make it except Daphne, so they have to save her. Shaggy and Scooby jump the moat to save her and get chased by a werewolf and Frankenstein. They hide, and set a trap up for the werewolf and are able to escape.

    Velma and Fred come in to see a room with a fire. They see the vampire and it warns them that it's too late and they should have heeded his warning. Velma loses her glasses and when crawling on the floor, a door opens under the fire place and she dissapears when Fred calls her name. Scooby and Shaggy find the kitchen and are all excited. Scooby checks the pantry and finds Frankenstein. They run away, and finally fall into a trap door. Velma is trying to find her way meanwhile and hears someone coming. She runs, falling into a barrell as Shaggy and Scooby come down the trap door to the same room. Scooby smells Scooby Snacks and comes to the barrell where Velma is and Shaggy gives her her extra pair of glasses. They hear Daphne yelling for help and start trying to figure out how to get her out. While doing so, the Vampire sneaks up on them and Scooby takes the rope and puts it around the Vampire tripping him and pulling him into the dungeon that Daphne was previously in. They meet up with Fred, after Daphne and Velma accidently they lose Shaggy and Scooby. Scooby and Shaggy find the mad scientists laboratory and see the Franken monster under a white sheet. They get a hose and decide to blast him with water. Scooby pulls the sheet off and it's not the monster, but it seems to be just a wire form of the monster. They play around with some of the chemicals in the lab and it accidently explodes and the werewolf that was sneaking up on them leaves. They start playing around but they hear a moan and the Franken monster starts to chase them. Scooby is strapped to the table and the monster pushes him and starts chasing after them. They are able to get away from him, and meet up with the gang and they all go down to the crypt. They open a coffin, and the vampire sits up, and chases the gang. Shaggy starts thinking about a way to trap the ghost. Shaggy and Scooby decide to use the tapestry for a trap, but it doesn't stop the vampire. He goes back in the coffin and it's empty. They see a ruby, a diamond, and a gold earring. They figure out that the fortune was sewn in the tapestry. They pay the gypsy a visit and accuse him of being at the castle. Scooby finds the tapestry and when the man runs, Scooby chases him down. A cop shows up and says that the caretaker reported trouble. The cop identifies the man as Big Bob Oakly, a master of disguises and wanted in seven statesmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Just before the gang stop at the fortune teller, Fred's collar is white, but then when they go in, it's back to normal colour.

    • The message Daphne found about the jewels and King Tut was supposedly written in 1668 but how can someone in 1668 know about King Tut? King Tut's tomb was found and became well-known in 1922 almost 300 years later.

    • Velma doesn't seem the least bit interested in retrieving her lost pair of glasses, even though eye glasses can run pretty expensive!

    • When helping Daphne out of the dungeon with a rope, Scooby sees the Vampire and uses the rope to trip him by wrapping it around his feet, even though Shaggy still seems to be holding it to help Daphne out, even though there is no rope in his hands after Daphne is out. It seems that there was one rope, then two, then back to one rope once more!

    • Daphne must have had time to change her lipstick color before the police showed up, even though there was no time! She went for a bit pinker than her usual color.

    • When Shaggy and Scooby are playing around in the laboratory, Scooby lays down on one of the operating tables. The straps are hanging from the sides of the table, but when we see Scooby again, the straps are buckled.

    • During the scene in which "Dracula" is running toward his coffin, you can see that there is a hole in the tapestry, where his head fits through. However, toward the end of this episode, when he is running with the tapestry and Scooby is chasing him, the tapestry is in one piece, with no signs of rips or tears.

    • When Shaggy and Scooby pull down the tapestry to trap "Dracula" you can see that the side of the tapestry that is facing Shaggy and Scooby has jewels sewn into it. However, when "Dracula" crashes into it, that same side is devoid of jewels and is replaced with a family crest. When "Dracula" is seen running toward the coffin a few moments later, the tapestry is plain.
