The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo (1985) s01e12 Episode Script

The Ghouliest Show on Earth

Scooby-Doo! Scooby-Doo! Scooby-Doo! Oh, Dada, our little boy is a world famous ghost chaser.
It makes a mother proud.
The father too, Mumsy.
This will be the biggest homecoming celebration Scooby's ever had.
So I've made up a double batch of Scooby Snacks.
Looks good, Mumsy.
No, Dada.
These Scooby Snacks are for Scooby.
Listen, there's a train a-coming.
It must be Scooby.
No, Mumsy, it's a circus train.
Ooh.
"Professor Fantazmo's Circus Fantastique.
" Who in tarnation's Professor Fantazmo? It is I, my friends, Professor Fantazmo with a circus like none you've ever seen before.
We'll have a ball from dusk till dawn.
And tonight only, the entire show is free.
Did he say a flea circus? No, he said a free circus.
You heard me right, pops, the circus is free.
Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go.
We'll be in Dooville in less than an hour, guys.
Then we'd better get into the old Dooville town spirit.
- Give me a "doo.
" - "Doo.
" - Give me a "vi.
" - "Vi.
" - Give me a "la.
" - "La.
" What's that spell? - "Doovilla"? - Right.
So do it.
Do it for Dooville.
Yay! Oops! Whoa! Uh, sorry, Vince.
Guess I got a little carried away.
You're forgiven, Flim Flam, this time.
But even in Dooville, you can't let your guard down.
The 13 ghosts could be anywhere.
Don't worry, Mr.
VanGhoul, the chest of demons is in safe paws.
Hey, Weerd, couldn't we keep an eye on those kids better from inside the train? Sure, Foosball, except we don't have tickets.
But fixing those kids' train car will be our ticket into the Spooks and Poltergeist Society.
We'll be SAPS.
Members in bad standing.
Ooh, ooh, ooh.
We're bad, heh.
Oh, like, for once, Scoob, it's nice to relax without being scared out of our wits.
You said it, heh-heh-heh.
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! Bon voyage, Scooby-Doo.
What? Of all the rotten luck.
This ought to fix them.
Yikes! What are you running for? That train can't hurt us, we're ghosts.
Oh, yeah, I forgot, don't you know? Whoa! Whoa! Now there's something you don't see every day, Constance.
What's that Egbert? Why, it's one of them newfangled mobile homes.
Whoa! Yikes! I see the Dooville sign, Uncle Scooby.
We're almost there.
We're home, Uncle Scooby.
Like I always say, trains are the safest way to travel.
Okay, gang, get ready to take on Dooville.
So, like, where is everybody? They knew I was coming.
Maybe that's why nobody's here.
Scooby Snacks.
I don't like this one bit.
Me neither.
There's dirt in this dip.
Patooie! Like, I'm sure there's a good reason for this no-show, Scoob.
Sounds like there's a show.
- Got a fix on it, Scoob? - Yeah.
Sounds like a circus.
Let's go see.
Like, I can't see a thing.
Zoinks! Look at this.
"Come to Circus Fantastique.
" So it is a circus.
And I'll bet Scooby's folks are there.
- Come on, Scrappy.
- Hey, guys, wait for us.
- Come on, guys, get your hands - I'll show you Knock the pillars over, win a prize.
Win a prize for the lovely lady.
Wow, Scrappy, get a load of this.
And there's Mumsy and Dada-Doo.
Can we go, Flim Flam, huh? Can we, can we? Leave it to me, Scrappy.
I've got a two-for-the-price-of-one idea.
It's absolutely free, absolutely free Ticket for one, please.
You don't need a ticket.
Admission is free.
Well, why didn't you say so? Whoops! I think I just lost my better half.
Allow me to show you around.
Ha, ha, you're on, pal.
Professor Fantazmo's the name, my boy and the Circus Fantastique is my pride and joy.
Flim Flam was right.
Everyone in town is here.
Like, all the Doos too.
Mumsy-Doo.
Dada-Doo.
- Scooby.
- Scooby.
My baby boy.
Looks like they couldn't wait to run into each other.
But what are they up to now? That's just the way us Doos say "how do?" In a tutu.
But, Mumsy, Dada, what happened to Scooby's homecoming celebration? Yeah.
Sorry, son, but we couldn't miss this circus.
Don't you see? It's free.
Free food, free rides, free games.
Everything free, free, free.
Come on.
You got a pretty neat setup here, Fantaz, old buddy.
Yeah, circus life is the most exciting one in the world.
Oh, I don't know.
Have you ever tried the life of a ghost chaser? Ghosts? Why, there's no such thing.
Says you.
We're ghost chasers.
And I just happen to have a bunch of ghosts right in here.
Yeah, it's a genuine chest of demons.
Hmm, I've never seen anything like that.
It would make a great attraction in my sideshow.
Say, there's an idea.
We could be partners, Fantaz.
Oh, I can see it now.
Flim Flam's Circus Fantastique.
- How's the attendance tonight, prof? - Just dandy, boss.
Well, keep up the good work and I might give you a raise.
- Well, is it a deal, Flim Flam? - No.
I can't really leave the gang high and dry.
After all, I am the brains of the outfit.
Oh, brother.
What are those kids listening to? That music just goes on and on.
I'd rather listen to a funeral dirge.
- Shaggy? Shaggy, where are you? - Oh, heh-heh-heh.
Oh, hi, Mr.
VanGhoul.
Welcome to the Circus Fantastique.
You can find all the fun in the world here on the house.
- Yeah, on the house.
- Oh, on the house.
That's wonderful.
Hmm, I don't like the sound of that music, or of that name, Professor Fantazmo.
I think I'll do a mystic check on this Circus Fantastique.
That's right, boys.
I have the best calliope around.
That music, it's totally out of this world.
Isn't it though? Hey, what's with the funhouse? Uh, closed for repairs, my boy.
The speaker system inside is broken.
No calliope music at all.
Now, what fun would a fun house be without that happy music? A complete drag, Fantaz.
Let's skip it.
- You hear what that circus guy said, Weerd? - Yeah, Bogel.
This should be a fun place to set our trap.
Look, Scoob, free pizza.
Oh, boy, let's eat.
Like, I don't know about you, Scoob but I don't wanna see the kind of pizza they make here.
Me neither.
Let me give you a hand, Scoob.
Whoa! Weerd, look.
Don't bother me now, Bogel.
Can't you see I'm testing our trap? But Weerd I said don't bother me.
Yikes! Yikes! Oh, boy, that was close.
Whoa! Like, let me out of this mask and out of this place.
Good idea, Scoob.
We'll climb out the window.
Look, it's Scrappy.
Hi, guys, look what I won.
Neat, huh? Yuck! Bye, guys.
Got a lot more things to see.
Shaggy, look.
Like, that merry-go-round doesn't look too merry.
Mumsy.
Dada.
Care to split another banana split, Mumsy? Love to, Dada.
Zoinks! Like, I don't know what's going on, but I've seen enough.
If we can't find an exit in here, let's make one.
Yikes! Wait a minute, what are we doing? We can just get out by disappearing.
Oh, yeah, heh, I keep forgetting.
Pretty smart, huh? - Hey.
- Put us down.
Shaggy, what are you doing? Sorry, gang, but we're out of here.
Scooby, round up Flim Flam and Scrappy.
Right, Shaggy.
Uncle Scooby, what's wrong? Fantaz, this is one awesome circus.
I could stay here forever.
Huh? Hi-ho, Scooby, away! Stop.
Where are you taking them? Far away.
But I don't wanna go, Scooby.
Don't you recognize a happening place when you see one? Hey, Professor Fantazmo.
Oh, don't leave, my friends.
The fun has just begun.
Like, that kind of fun we don't need.
Step on it, Scoob.
Flim Flam, do come back, you hear? Phew! Will one of you please tell me what this is all about? - Gremlins, gargoyles, awful monsters.
- Awful monsters.
Oh, thanks.
I really understand now.
All I know is, we were having the best time of all time till you boys took us away.
- It was fun, wasn't it? - Yeah.
I'm sorry, Mumsy, Dada.
Don't you start crying too, Scrappy.
No, I'm sniffing around for Flim Flam.
Flim Flam? - Like, wasn't he with you, Scoob? - Uh-uh.
Uh-oh.
Hey, Fantaz, wait up.
I ran away just to be with you.
The Circus Fantastique is where I belong.
I'm so glad to hear you say that, my boy.
Because my circus will never let you leave.
Ha, ha, yes, siree, Fantaz.
You'll be the first partner I ever had.
I can hardly wait.
Now, just sign on the dotted line.
Sure thing, Fantaz.
This is the smartest move you've ever made.
Congratulations, son.
You're one of us now.
Hey, nice threads, Fantaz.
Flashy, yet tasteful.
I like them.
And trust me, prof, I'll be the best right-hand ringmaster you ever had.
Glad to hear it, my boy.
Now, go out there and mingle.
I want everyone to meet my new partner.
Oh, boy, this is too good to be true.
It certainly is.
A quick search through that boy's pockets and the chest of demons will be mine.
I never dreamed I'd run across Scooby-Doo and his ghost chasers in this two-bit town.
What a tasty treat they'll make for my circus of living evil.
The chest isn't here.
Flim Flam's meddling friends must have it.
Wait till I get my hands on them.
At least we're out from under that stupid net.
But I'm still stuck, Weerd.
And I'm stuck with you.
Come on, we gotta find Scooby-Doo and those kids.
Maybe they're in here.
Why, you ectoplasmic outcasts.
What are you doing here? Uh, oh, well, uh Uh, you see, uh Quiet.
Your presence here is a dead giveaway to the true evil nature of my circus.
Evil? Ha, ha, you don't say? Then you must be one of the 13 ghosts.
Am I right? Why don't you tell the whole world? All right, listen up, world Silence! Oh, forgive us, oh, great repulsive one.
We'll do anything.
We'll even help you steal the chest of demons.
We will? Duh, uh Yeah, we will, we will.
Hmm, you groveling ghosts may be of some use after all.
Take my magic whip and find Scooby-Doo's house.
And here's what I want you to do.
Oh, he's bad, you know, heh, heh.
This must be the place, Bogel.
Now, let's get down to business.
Or should I say up to business? My spirits are rising already, you know.
Flim Flam's disappearance has me totally up in the air, guys.
Where could he have gone? Maybe Vincent knows.
Sounds like he's trying to get through.
Like, hi, Mr.
VanGhoul.
Boy, did you pop in at the right time.
Flim Flam's missing.
And I'll bet he's back at that neat circus.
A tingling in my bones says you're right, Scrappy.
He is at the Circus Fantastique.
- Lucky guy.
- Unlucky.
He's under Professor Fantazmo's evil spell.
Like, what did we tell you? But the professor seemed so friendly.
Don't be fooled.
Professor Fantazmo is one of the 13 ghosts and his calliope music disguises a midway full of monsters.
Monsters.
Monsters! Like, you can say that again.
Monsters, monsters, monsters.
You must rescue Flim Flam before dawn or he'll be trapped in that circus of horrors forever.
Like, no way are we going back to that creepy circus, eh, Scoob? Absolutely not.
No way.
Yikes! Whoa! Like, we're back in the big top.
Uh-oh.
Someone's coming.
Those goofy ghosts are back.
It's about time.
I must have that chest of demons before dawn.
Like, maybe our clowning around will help us sneak out of here.
I hope so.
Those kids will be here any second, you know.
Scooby? Shaggy? Oh, my gosh.
Good evening, my friends.
I've been waiting for you.
Eureka, we're back at the circus.
Free rides, free food, free everything.
See? They can't resist my circus.
Give in and give me the chest of demons.
Forget it, big-top breath.
This box is protected by puppy power.
We'll see about that.
Quick, Scrappy, run for it.
Oh, why are we running, Daphne? I can take him, honest.
Just keep moving, I'm right behind you Oh.
Hey, hey, we tripped up a good guy, ha, ha.
- For once we did something right.
- Yeah, ha, ha, ha.
Well, it was all my idea.
Got any other bright ideas, Weerd? What a revolting "coinkidink.
" Quick, you two, find that mutt with the chest.
- He couldn't have gone far.
- Oh, yes, your ugliness, right away.
As for you, my dear, you're gonna learn to love my circus.
How about it, Daphne? Can I slow down now? Huh? Huh! Daphne? Where are you, Daphne? Sneak attack, eh? Well, prepare to splat, jack.
- Uncle Scooby? - Right, Scrappy, it's me.
Like, no time for romance, guys, until we find the others and split.
Hop in.
Hurry, ladies and gents.
The show you've been waiting for is about to begin.
Oh, Dada, I can hardly wait to see what's next.
Oh, move it, Constance.
We don't have all night.
Oh, keep your overalls on, Egbert.
Here's the moment you've been waiting for, my boy.
I'm putting the show in your hands.
Ah, smart move, Fantaz.
I won't let you down.
Heh, I'll make sure of that, ha, ha.
Now, keep these folks in their seats until the sun comes up.
Yes, professor.
Look, Uncle Scooby, there's Daphne.
Boy, are we glad to see you.
Hey, like, neat disguise, Daphne.
No wonder you didn't get caught.
No, but you will.
Seize them and the chest.
Yikes! Step on it, Shaggy.
Zoinks! Poor Daphne has had a big-top brainwashing.
Poor Daphne.
Poor us.
Look out.
Yikes! Chest of demons or not in one minute my circus of living evil will depart with a whole new crowd of victims.
What? I didn't say, "Send in the clowns.
" Like, quick, Scoob, grab the handbrake.
Uh-oh.
It's broken.
Those three lunatics have the chest.
- We'll get it, boss.
- Yeah, leave it to us.
- Get it for me, Flim Flam.
- Yes, professor.
Yikes! Give me the wheel, Shaggy.
I'm taking evasive action.
Everybody, duck.
Oh, no, not the calliope.
It's the music that hides from the world what we really are.
Help, Flim Flam.
Like, that goes double for us.
- Help, help.
- Help! - Help! - Help! Help! Flim Flam.
What's going on? Stay calm, my lad, everything's fine.
Just get the chest of demons, and we'll rebuild the calliope.
No way, Fantaz.
You're a gross-out.
I'm breaking my friends out of this bogus big top.
No, stop! Get the chest ready, guys.
I hope this works because I'm getting tired of this ringmaster gig.
Yay! So do it.
Do it for Dooville.
Yay! Better late than never, son.
Yes, welcome home, Scooby.
Aw, shucks.
Gee, there's no place like home.
Yeah, but, like, how will the Doos get their home home? No problem, guys, when you're as smart as a whip.
Flim Flam? Hey, what did you want from me? It's a defective whip.
The evil circus has closed its door And Baron Fantazmo is no more For that, we thank our plucky crew And our favorite hero Scooby-Dooby Moo.
