Scooby, dear Scooby Ghost chaser supreme Those monsters and ghouls Have made our dog scream His courage, it's gone He no longer has any Because Scooby-Doo has seen One ghost too many Yes? May I help you? Yes, we'd like to go on a trip.
To calm my Uncle Scooby's nerves.
Oh, yes.
He's a wreck, isn't he? Who? What? Where? But a vacation will fix him up.
Something relaxing and luxurious.
Spare no expense, my good man.
Uh, just make it cheap.
Oh, I have just the ticket.
An ocean cruise to Bermuda aboard the Queen Mertyl.
Sounds great, hey, Scooby? I don't know, Flim Flam.
Why, once we're sailing along with the fishies you'll forget all about those creepy ghosts and monsters.
Yeah, no monsters.
Yikes, a monster! Where? Over there.
Who turned out the lights? No need to panic, Scoob, ha, ha.
Ha, ha, it's only a mask.
And your monster is just a picture on this travel poster.
Oops! Sorry.
Your tickets, madam.
And have a wonderful vacation.
Oh, I'm sure we will.
That's what they think, right, Weerd? Right, Bogel, this trip will spook Scooby-Doo out of his wits.
And out of his life.
We're gonna scare him to death.
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.
Yikes! - 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! You'll see, Uncle Scooby.
A vacation is just what the doctor ordered.
I ordered no such thing.
Yikes! Hey, that sounds like Mr.
VanGhoul.
But where is he? I'm in here.
And next time, pack me with the clothing.
Now, what's all this about a vacation? You should all be out chasing ghosts.
Ghosts? Poor Scooby's seen one too many ghosts, Mr.
VanGhoul.
He needs some time off.
Yeah, like, he's really jumpy.
And if you liked that jump, just watch this one.
Yikes! See what we mean? Yes, I'm afraid I do.
So why not join us, Vince? You could use a little fun in the sun.
That's not such a bad idea, Flim Flam.
Scrappy, activate the crystal's transporter.
Sure thing, Mr.
VanGhoul.
Uh-oh! The transporter beam's blown a fuse.
Oh, not again.
Too bad, Mr.
VanGhoul.
Looks like you'll have to sit this trip out.
Pardon me.
Oh, boy, here we go again.
I'm sorry I startled your friend.
I just wanted to welcome you folks aboard.
I'm Captain Ferguson, at your service.
If you're in the market for a first mate, I'm your man, cap, old buddy.
Actually, the position is filled.
Good, then it's a deal.
I won't let you down, cap.
Now, how about you showing your new first mate around the ship? What do you say, cap, old pal? I don't know.
Scoob, what are you doing in there? - Hiding.
- Hiding from what? From ghosts and monsters.
Then you're in the wrong place, bub.
Mwah! Shaggy, ghosts! Scooby, stop playing around and come out of there.
Tickle, tickle, tickle.
Whoa! You know, Scoob, your nerves are starting to get on my nerves.
This here's their stateroom, Weerd.
Let's see what they're up to, Bogel.
Come on, Uncle Scooby.
What you need is some exercise.
A jog will, like, calm your nerves.
I doubt it, Shaggy.
You're doing great, Scoob.
Thanks, Shaggy.
Ha, ha, we're brilliant, Bogel.
Brilliant.
Yikes! Boo.
Ghosts! One more scare like that And Scooby-Doo will be out of the ghost-chasing business permanently.
Ta-da.
Help, Flim Flam! Ghosts! Hello, Scooby.
Still seeing ghosts, eh? Uh-huh.
We've gotta get your mind off those ghosts, old pal.
- Maybe what you need is a hobby.
- A hobby? Yeah, a hobby.
Like stamp collecting, or making model airplanes.
Or maybe even magic.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Magic.
I like it.
All right.
Let me teach you a trick.
Now, look inside the box.
- It's empty.
- Precisely.
But watch.
I'm going to close the top.
When I knock three times, open the crate.
- Got it? - Got it.
Oh, no! Flim Flam, where are you? Here I am.
- Amazing.
- And it's easy too.
- Now you give it a try.
- All right.
First, open the box and get in.
Booga, booga! Ghosts! Yikes! Like, what's wrong, Scooby? Ghosts.
In the box.
He's about to crack, folks.
And for good reason.
Mr.
VanGhoul, what do you mean? I'm afraid I have bad news.
My spectral chart indicates spirit activity in your immediate area.
In fact, I believe there are ghosts aboard your very ship.
- G? G? Ghosts? - Shh! We can't let Scooby hear this.
It'll upset him.
Upset him? It's upsetting me.
Then stay here and keep an eye on Scooby.
We'll check out Vincent's ghost report.
We're getting closer.
Closer.
I feel spectral vibrations coming from behind this door.
The ship's bridge? That can't be.
This is where the cap hangs out.
He's my pal.
Hey, I don't get it.
Where is the cap? Nobody's steering the ship.
Unless nobody's a somebody with no body.
A ghost.
What's going on in here? Hiya, cap.
Where you been? I was giving my pals here a little tour.
And my pals were wondering, cap, who's steering the ship? Why, the automatic pilot, of course.
That's what I told them.
They didn't believe me.
It's a normal procedure.
You see, our course is preset for Bermuda.
We're heading for 70 degrees west and 27 degrees north, right on schedule.
Seventy degrees west, 27 degrees north.
Why does that sound familiar? Well, cap.
We'd better be shoving off.
Shiver your timbers and all that stuff.
Not so fast.
Huh! S S Something wrong, cap? Yes.
I forgot to invite you to dine with me tonight.
I'd like you to all be guests at my table.
You betcha, cap.
It'll give you and me a chance to talk shop, or ship, or whatever you call it.
We'll be there.
Uncle Scooby, we've searched the ship.
There are no ghosts.
So come on out.
We're having dinner with the captain.
There'll be food, Scoob.
Food.
No way.
I'm not going.
Huh? Hop in, the water's fine.
Ghosts! Ghosts in the bathtub! He's all right.
He's only dazed.
For once, he looks pretty calm.
And I know just how to keep him that way.
Relax, Scooby, and sleep.
That's right.
Sleep.
Sleep.
Now, just imagine you're floating through the sky on a warm sunny day.
Gently floating.
I'm floating.
You feel good.
I feel good.
You're relaxed, and you're not going to be scared anymore.
Not anymore.
Instead of being scared, you're just going to laugh.
Right.
Now, when I snap my fingers, you're going to wake up feeling wonderfully calm.
I feel calm, relaxed.
- It worked, Flim Flam.
- Naturally.
I'll bring your leash, Scoob.
We don't want you floating away on us.
They're heading toward 70 degrees west, 27 degrees north.
Oh, no, it can't be.
That's the Bermuda Triangle.
It will destroy them all.
Mm, mm.
Delicious.
My friends, welcome to the 50th reunion of this ship's final cruise.
- Like, did he say "final cruise"? - Uh-huh.
Yes, 50 years ago, this very night we were all right here in the ballroom when this ship sank.
Oh-ho! Ha-ha-ha.
I get it.
It's a joke, ha-ha-ha.
He's pulling our leg, ha-ha-ha.
- Funny, eh, Scoob? - Heh, yeah.
It's no joke.
Hey, cap, what gives? You're our travel agent.
And you're also a ghost.
Ghosts.
I laugh at ghosts.
Very funny.
They're all ghosts.
All ghosts.
Funny.
Boo.
I can't stop laughing.
Let's get out of here.
Yikes! Scour the decks.
I want those mortals found.
Gee, Uncle Scooby's not scared at all.
That power-of-suggestion stuff really works, Flim Flam.
Ah, it weren't nothing.
Well, let's not tell him the truth, for his own sake.
And for heaven's sakes, keep him quiet.
Scoob, shh! You gotta pipe down.
- Why, Shaggy? - Why? Because, uh We're playing a game, hide-and-seek.
And we don't want the captain to find us.
In here.
Quick.
Find me, ha, ha.
Find me, ha, ha.
Hide here, Scooby.
In the magic box.
And while you're in there, practice that magic trick I taught you.
Okay.
Peekaboo, ha-ha-ha.
Mr.
VanGhoul, we're in deep trouble.
This ship is crawling with ghosts.
Why are you whispering? We don't want Scooby to know.
Well, you'd better know this, there's worse news.
That ghost ship of yours is on a direct course for the Bermuda Triangle.
Oh, what? Ha, ha, you mean the place that swallows ships in one gulp? That's the place.
And once that ship enters the triangle, the demon chest will burst open.
The captured spirits will be set free to destroy us all.
We're doomed! Not if we can get into the bridge and turn this ship around.
You can practice the trick later, Scooby.
We're playing a new game now.
Really? Oh, boy.
Another game.
Like hide-and-seek? No, Uncle Scooby, this game is more like football.
You see, if we get to the steering wheel before the captain, we score a touchdown.
Football? Oh, boy, my favorite.
All right, team, we need a score and we need it now.
I want you to go out there and fight, fight, fight.
Fight, fight, fight.
Score, score, score.
Score, score, score.
- Win, win, win.
- Win, win, win.
Now, let's get them.
Yay! Fifteen, 42, 11, hike.
Now I've got you.
Stop him.
Oh, if we let them get in here, the captain will kill us.
How can he kill us? We're ghosts.
Touchdown.
Quick, turn the ship around.
Shaggy, steer us out of here.
Like, I'm trying.
The chest, it's starting to open.
Wee! A trampoline.
I like it.
Mayday, mayday.
Mother's Day, Flag Day, Doris Day.
No! Hey, heh, howdy, neighbor, what can we do you for? Run for your afterlife! Yikes! At last, our fellow spirits are free.
No! No, not us.
We're on your side.
Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy.
Hello, everybody.
No.
Help! Yikes! You know, Weerd, we always seem to get ours in the end, you know.
This way.
Maybe we'll be safe in here.
Oh, boy.
A movie theater.
I love movies.
Roll them.
Zoinks, like, this movie's in 3-D.
Three-D? Oh, boy.
I am not enjoying this.
So lifelike.
Oh, am I dizzy.
Mr.
VanGhoul, the transporter beam, it's finally working.
So, like, transport us out of here.
First, we must transport this ship out of the Bermuda Triangle.
Right now.
Our ship's out of the triangle.
But what good does that do us? We're still here, and so is that.
But now the chest can be locked.
So all we have to do is trick the demons back into the box.
And I know just the trick.
Flim Flam, what are you doing? The movie's over, Scooby.
It's time to perform your magic trick.
My magic trick.
Oh, boy.
Ladies and gentlemen, and demons of all ages I present to you the one, the only, Scooby the Magnificent.
Good evening.
Empty.
Now watch.
Uncle Scooby, you did it.
You caught the ghosties.
Bravo.
Thank you.
Why, thank you.
Like, what's happening? Well, it stands to reason that since the ghosts are defeated their ship is defeated as well.
Oh! Whoa! Scooby, you're amazing.
I've never seen anyone so calm and cool in the face of danger.
Oh, danger's nothing for guys like me and Scooby.
It's a snap, right, Scooby? Yeah, it's a snap.
Where am I? Yikes! I guess we showed them, eh, Bogel? You betcha, Weerd.
Yikes! And once again, we bid adieu To the 13 ghosts of Scooby-Dooby-Doo!
