My favorite movie.
Mine too.

Our feature begins after station identification.
- Neato.
Can we stay up, Daphne? - Well, we may need munchies for this.
All right.
I'll provide the pop.
And, like, I'll provide the popcorn.
Scooby, while you're up, how's about locking up the Chest of Demons for the night? - Okay, Flim Flam.
And remember to turn on the security alarm system.
- I will.
- Let's see.
We have six people and six bowls.
So we'll need to make, unh, 6 pounds of popcorn.
Like, just pop it in the microwave set the temperature for 8 million degrees, ha, ha and things will be popping in no time.
- Did you turn on the alarm system? - I'll say.
Here comes the movie.
And here comes the popcorn.
Ha, ha, perfect timing.
Yikes! Well? Do you have anything to say for yourself? Yeah.
Where's the butter and salt? And now our movie presented for my special viewers namely Scooby-Doo and friends.
Huh? Wait.
How does she know we're watching? Zomba sees and knows.
- Hey.
- What's the big idea? No.
This is a warning to all living mortals that whosoever opens this chest of demons will release 13 of the most terrifying ghosts upon the face of the earth.
- Let's get them, Bogel.
- I'm with you, Weerd.
Only you can return the demons to the chest.
Why us? Because you let them out.
Phew! Whoa! And now for our feature presentation.
Excuse me.
Let's go.
Let's go.
- Let's go.
- The villagers are gaining on us Dr.
Quickly, this way.
What gives here? It doesn't seem possible, but we're stuck in this old movie.
Zomba's done this to us.
I'm afraid she's one of the 13 spirits from the demon chest.
Oh, you're so right, Mr.
I've gone to great lengths to trap you on that film for eternity.
Oh, that should give me plenty of time to find your precious demon chest mm and release my fellow spirits.
Then, once I destroy the box, I'll be free forever.
I remember this part of the movie.
It's at the beginning where the villagers are chasing Dr.
Frankenstein and Egad into the cemetery.
Let's go.
They're after me again.
Please, you must help me.
But we can't help you, Dr.
We're just visitors here.
We're not really in this movie.
- You are now.
- Huh! - Yeah, we quit.
- But why? Because we've been chased through this movie a million times.
We're sick of it.
So now it's your turn.
Let's go.
- Let's go.
- Well, ta-ta.
Gotta run.
And good luck.
You'll need it.
The villagers are coming this way.
What'll we do? - We'll have to play along with the movie.
- Like, how do we do that? It's a snap, Shaggy, my man.
We've all seen this flick a hundred times.
We know the lines by heart.
So just play your parts, guys until Vince can come up with a way to get us out of this creep zone.
I'll do my best.
Oh, boy.
I get to be Egad.
And you're Dr.
Frankenscoob, Uncle Scooby.
I don't know, Scrappy.
Hey, come on, Scooby, baby.
Don't give me negative vibes here.
You're a natural.
You were born for this role.
It's you.
Just look at that emotion in that face.
And how about that smile? What a heartbreaker.
We're talking Oscar.
Am I right? Of course I'm right.
Now, wait for your cue.
Oh, and by the way, Scooby, you look marvelous.
Aw, shucks.
All right, actors, take your places.
And action.
It's the mad doctor.
Let's get him.
What'll we do? According to the movie, there's a tunnel that leads us back to the castle.
Tunnel? What tunnel? This tunnel.
Uh-oh! Hmm, where are we? Inside your secret laboratory, Dr.
And tonight, you will complete your greatest experiment.
- I will? - Yes.
You will bring the monster to life.
I will bring the monster to life.
Monster? We lose more mad scientists that way.
How goes the acting out there, Flim Flam? On the Flim Flam scale of one to 10, 10 being the best, I give it a zero.
So why are you heating up the crystal, Vince? In hopes of making contact with the real world.
And it's working.
It's working.
But I don't like what I see.
So this is where the foolish mortals have hidden the Chest of Demons.
But it won't remain hidden for long.
Zomba sees and knows.
The demon chest.
It is Zomba's now.
Huh! No! Zomba will destroy the Chest of Demons, Scooby-Doo.
As long as you're trapped in the movie there's no way you can stop me.
Heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho.
The villagers are restless.
Better work fast if we're going to bring your creation to life.
Bring my creation to Who could that be? 'Tis I, Dr.
Frankenscoob, your bride-to-be, Daphne.
- Daphne? - Oh, Frankenscoob.
Where have you been? Ew! Mush.
Ick! - Daphne, what's wrong with you? - What's wrong? We were supposed to be married tonight, Frankenscoob.
You left me waiting at the altar.
I did? Oops! Sorry.
Not again.
Who is it now? - It's, like, Constable Von Shaggabond.
- It is? I've come to put a stop to your experiments, Dr.
- Oh, really? Why? - Because, sir, you are insane.
Insane? Shaggy, I'm not insane.
Like, I didn't mean it, Scoob, honest.
It's just part of the movie.
- Really, Shaggy? - Cross my heart, Scoob.
Ha, ha.
- You're as sane as I am.
- Which means you're both nuts.
Frankenscoob's experiment is starting.
And so is ours.
If the crystal is hot enough its mystic energy can transport us back to home.
It's our only hope.
Hope all you want, VanGhoul.
You'll never escape.
What do you want? the Chest of Demons.
But before I destroy it, I'll set free my fellow spirits.
No! It's empty.
This isn't the Chest of Demons.
It's a fake.
Ha, ha, gotcha, Zomba.
If you want the real Chest of Demons, come and get it.
What took you so long? I want that chest.
Run, Vince.
The storm is at its height, Dr.
Shall I turn on the power to bring your creation to life? Yes.
Bring my creation to life.
Huh! What? Scrappy, help! Uh-oh! Are you okay, Dr.
Frankenscoob? Hmm.
I think so, Scrappy.
Like, that's looking on the bright side, Scoob.
Oh, my gosh.
The monster.
It's alive.
It's alive.
It's alive! Yeah, but is it paper-trained? Oh, I know you're in this old movie somewhere, VanGhoul in living color.
You cannot hide from Zomba.
Zomba don't know us very well, does she? SCOOBY, SHAGGY, SCRAPPY & DAPHNE: Yikes! SCOOBY, SHAGGY, SCRAPPY & DAPHNE: Whoa! Cut.
No, no, no.
This scene is all wrong.
All wrong, Mr.
That was the worst acting I've ever seen in my life.
- Huh? - I mean, loosen up, will you? Your face is lifeless.
No expression, no emotion.
We gotta fix that.
Makeup! Now, just sit back and relax.
Aha! We will turn you into a new person, place or thing in no time.
Now, that's a monster.
Tsk, tsk, tsk, monsters, they're so touchy.
VanGhoul, are we glad to see you.
Like, have you found a way to get us out of this spook show? There's a slim chance the crystal can save us.
Very slim.
Zoinks, it's Zomba.
And now I will take the Chest of Demons, if you please.
No way, zombie face.
You can't make us give it to you.
Scrappy, old chum, better face the facts.
Zomba won, and we lost.
That's all there is to it.
And to the victor goes the Chest of Demons.
A wise decision.
So where is it? We hid the chest right behind that door.
We hope you enjoy it.
Gotcha again, Zomb-o.
Huh! Hurry, to the laboratory.
Shaggy, Scooby, come on.
Yeah, step on it, Scoob.
You don't want Zomba to catch us.
Oh, no.
Yikes! Whoa! - Where are Scooby and Shaggy? - When last sighted they were heading for the basement.
- Gee, Mr.
Do you think the crystal can transport us home? If we can heat up its mystic fluid enough, yes.
And that lightning should be all the heat we need.
They cannot hide from Zomba.
Like, it think we lost her, Scoob.
We can relax now.
That was close.
- Scooby.
- Shaggy, what's wrong? - The m M M The m M M - The m? M? M? No, the m M M Yeah, the m M M - The monster! - Oh, the monster.
- Now, Flim Flam, throw the switch.
- Contact.
The crystal's heating up.
It's working.
It's working.
- Maybe these will help too.
- No.
There's too much power.
Turn it off.
Turn it off! Whoops! It's overloaded.
It's going to blow! Come on, Scoob.
Let's get while the getting's good.
No, Shaggy, wait.
Help me.
But you can't save him, Scoob.
You'll never be able to move those huge beams.
- Yes, I will, Shaggy.
- Like, how? With Scooby Snacks.
Zomba! Zoinks! Yikes! Quick, Scoob.
We'll take the elevator.
Oh, I'll destroy them and the Chest of Demons.
Mama, come back.
Well, Scoob, looks like we lost Zomba for good.
Like, then again, I might be wrong.
Yikes! We're still in the movie, Vince.
Looks like you blew it.
Yes, I'm afraid my theory about the crystal backfired.
You mean we're really stuck here forever? Well, there's one other chance of escape: the demon chest.
Of course.
If we could trap Zomba in the chest, her spell on us would be broken.
Help! - It sounds like Uncle Scooby's being broken.
- Somebody, help! Nothing can help you now, Frankenscoob.
Heave - ho.
Scooby, quick.
Throw down the chest.
Okay, Daphne.
No! Whoa! Oh, no.
- The chest.
- You missed.
- The chest.
- Missed again.
- The chest! - Strike three.
You're out.
Yikes! Whoa! Like, good hands, Vince.
VanGhoul" to you.
- Gotcha, pal.
- And I've got the chest.
No! So long, Zomba.
- We're home.
We escaped the movie.
- That's right.
It's all over.
Once Zomba was boxed, her spell was broken.
What a relief.
Well, that's the last we'll see of old Zomba and of Frankenscoob's monster.
- Oh, I wouldn't be so sure of that, Shaggy.
- Oh, no.
Frankenscooby Snacks.
That's my boy.
