The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo

Show Summary

The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo is about the adventures of Scooby Doo, Shaggy Rogers, Daphne Blake, and Scrappy-Doo chasing after more mysteries. Now they are joined by a magnificent warlock called Vincent Van Ghoul, who is a cartoon caricature of Vincent Price (who also provides the voice), and a mischievous boy named Flim-Flam. Together they have to catch 13 ghosts and put them in a magical "Chest of Demons" that Scooby and Shaggy were tricked into opening by two sneaky ghosts named Weerd and Bogel. This was the last cartoon series that the original Scooby-Doo gang (minus Fred and Velma) appeared in for nearly 20 years. In 1988, the entire gang returned to TV as children in A Pup Named Scooby Doo, but they wouldn't resurface again weekly in their adult form until 2002 in What's New Scooby-Doo?.

  • Good show

    7.5
    Good show, but not much continuity.
  • Really?

    3.5
    The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo sounds good, but it falls flat in every way. Just look at the characters: You've got the typical Scooby, Shaggy, and Daphne, you have the annoying Scrappy Doo, and and a new, equally annoying character named Flim Flam. Where are Fred and Velma? Why replace 2 classic characters with two mistakes? Scrappy never should have gotten introduced into the Scooby universe. So, the final package is a watered down program to make Scooby fans angry. Stick with the original or What's New Scooby Doo.moreless
  • The idea sounds really good, but the producers wasted the potential.

    Scooby Doo always followed the same format when a new show about it was created, but at one point there was a new attempt that sounded great, but failed to hold its promise, and it was The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. The show is about Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Scrappy, and a new character named Film Flam going around the world trying to catch ghosts from a chest that Scooby accidentally opened. They are given advice as to where the ghosts are by a person named Vincent Van Ghoul, voiced by Vincent Price, and they all have to work together to stop the ghosts from taking over the world. Now I love the idea, and is a nice change of pace from the format. This show was trying to go for the Ghostbusters format with the catching ghosts, but it comes up very short in almost every aspect. For a show that claims there are 13 ghosts it lies completely. There are clearly more than 13 ghosts that escaped from the chest. In one episode the gang went on a ghost ship that was full of ghosts, so there are indeed more than 13 ghosts that escaped from the chest, and even the opening titles make it look like more than 13 ghosts escaped. Dropping Fred and Velma out of this show was a big mistake. 2 classic characters are replaced by two annoying characters, Scrappy Doo and Film Flam. Scrappy Doo is easily one of the worst characters to be introduced into the Scooby Doo franchise. Always going on about Puppy Power, or being very annoying he was just a nuisance, and was irritating. Film Flam though is so bad he makes Scrappy Doo look almost good. Film Flam is extremely annoying in every sense of the word. He constantly does these gags or other funny stuff that comes off as very bad, and unfunny. Nothing about him is interesting in the least but, and is always looking for a way to make money. Also where is this kid's parents? We don;t learn anything about him at all. Where his parents are, or where he came from, and anything that is basic character development. Along the way the gang is hounded at by two ghosts named Weird, and Boog. They are like comedy relief, and to be honest they are pretty good at it, and seem to be the only characters beside Scooby and Shaggy giving me a laugh. Vincent Van Ghoul was also great, and the best new character to be introduced into the franchise. Always being cunning, and could have funny moments as well. The stories are OK, and each one fits the theme of the ghost that escaped like going into a TV movie, or a circus that is evil on the inside, and a ship of ghosts. The artwork is good in this show with the ghost designs looking creative, and inspired, and the animation is smooth, but repetitive sometimes. This show had everything that could have made it an excellent addition to the franchise. It had a great premise, and what happened? They threw that opportunity away. This show isn't the worst of the franchise, but this show had wasted good potential, and it could have been so much more.moreless
  • Can anyone name the 13 ghosts in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo

    7.0
    Good show but I cannot find the 13 Ghosts. Can anyone name them? I have tryed and come up with only 10 or 11 not counting the two who got the gang to open the box at the start. If anyone can name them it would be very helpful. Thanks for your help.
  • I Love Scooby and Vincent, What a great pair..Now give me the DVD's!

    8.5
    This series may not have gone on for long but what they did give us was great.

    Vincent Price is without doubt one of the best cartoon voice over actors ever, Not to mention great horror actors of his time plus He really seemed to enjoy his role.

    Not really my Favorite Scooby Doo series but it is very much worth watching,.

    It also was fun to see it being Scooby and Shaggy with a few others tossed in.

    I don’t think any other Scooby series will be like this, the voice acting and the story lines are among the best, it was very different and different in a good way.

    Why is it not the best? It didn’t run very long (one season) but they laid it out to be the “13” ghost of Scooby doo, and they did so with only 13 episodes, So I cant really be mad at that.

    Some times you just can’t beat the first time around (the first Scooby doo series will always be the best)

    I do wonder if it could have been as great without Vincent Price….I do know I want the DVD’s now!moreless
