    This is a great show and this was a good start to it. Without Fred and Velma Scooby-Doo is a whole lot better. Vincent Van Ghoul and that Flim-Flam kid are great characters. The two chosts steal the Mystery flying machine and Scooby, Scrappy, Shaggy, and Daphne have to get it back. On their way they encounter a town of werewolves and are told by Vincent Van Ghoul (A Parody on Vincent Van Gogh, great) and Flim-Flam about the way all the town turns into werewolves. Then Shaggy and Scooby are tricked into opening up the Chest of demons and they release the thirteen ghosts and they have to get them all back.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • It is established in this episode that The Chest of Demons may only be opened by "the living," yet in nearly every subsequent episode, a ghost/demon/monster is trying to snatch the chest to open it, and several (briefly) succeed at doing so.

    • Since the storyline had not yet been established, the opening credits segment does not appear in this episode -- the title of the series is not shown at all. In its original ABC broadcasts, it cut to a "13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo" title card before the first break, but this has not appeared in the subsequent reruns.

    • While trying to fend off werewolf Daphne, Flim Flam shoots the cork out of a bottle of Lotsa Luck Joy Juice, and in the next shot the bottle is re-corked.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Shaggy: Himalaya, Honolulu, what's the difference?
      Daphne: About 7,000 miles!

    • Vincent Van Ghoul: Once upon a midnight dreaming, I woke up to a ghostly screaming, so I gazed into the crystal ball to see what was new. And what I watched was truly shocking -- the demon chest, it was unlocking -- unlocking the thirteen ghosts of Scooby-Doo!

    • Flim-Flam: Lotsa Luck Joy Juice! It's a lucky charm in a bottle! Lotsa Luck removes all unwanted curses, jinxes, and evil spells. It's also a great rocket fuel and a darn good dandruff remover.

  • NOTES (2)

    • This is yet another addition to the Scooby-Doo franchise, based off the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! show that started in 1969. The most recent Scooby-Doo series before this one was The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries which ended just a week before this series started, and also aired on ABC.

    • Daphne and Shaggy's looks are updated. Shaggy switches from his normal green shirt to red. Daphne has a new hairstyle (which was a popular hairstyle for women at the time) and she now has two to three different outfits that she switches between episodes. The Mystery Machine has also been updated.

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Scooby: (singing) Hawaii lies over the ocean, Hawaii lies over the sea.

      This is a take off of the traditional Scottish folk song "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean".

    • Daphne: Look again Lindbergh, that's not sand, it's snow!

      Daphne is referring to Charles Lindbergh, a pilot who is famous for making the first non-stop trip across the Atlantic Ocean.

    • Character: Haunty Maul

      Weerd appears as Haunty Maul, host of "Let's Make 'Em Squeal." This is a spoof of game show host Monty Hall and the series "Let's Make a Deal."

    • Music: "To All The Ghouls I've Loved Before"

      Scooby and Ghoulio sing "To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before" a rip-off of the Willie Nelson / Julio Iglesias song, "To All the Girls I've Loved Before."

    • Flim Flam: "Trouble" with a capital "T" and that rhymes with "B" and that stands for "Bad luck".

      Replace "B" with "P" and "Bad luck" with "Pool" and you have a quote from the musical, Music Man.
