3-D Struction

[instrumental music]
It should not be
much further, senor.
There it is.
[dramatic music]
What are you doing? Those are
the bones of El Oloroso.
- You cannot take them away.
- Watch me, mate.
But they are sacred
to these people.
Whoever disturbs the bones
will be struck
by a terrible curse.
A curse? Get real.

[instrumental music]
Mmm-mm, boy. Nothing beats
airplane food, Scoob.
I can't believe
we're going to Costa Rica.
Daphne, you've gotta thank
your uncle for this trip.
Since he couldn't make it to the
opening of the museum exhibit
he thought we'd enjoy it.
This private jet sure tops
commercial flights.
You said it, Velma,
like the only thing missing
is free peanuts. Ha-ha.
So we brought our own.
[instrumental music]
[camera shutter clicks]
The Costa Rican Museum
has a top
paleontology department.
People come from
all over the world
'to work on their fossils
and bones.'
Bones? Yum!
Wow! These people sure know
how to throw a dinner.
That's good 'cause I sure know
how to catch one.
[indistinct chatter]
[camera shutter clicks]
Nobody told us
it was black tie.
Do I have time to change?
[both gasp]
Like, this guy would be
pretty scary
if it weren't for his
carbon-challenged physique.
Surround sound speakers.
They make that band seem like
they're right in the room.
(male #1)
'Bienvenidos amigos'
I am the museum curator,
Dr. Armando Gutierrez.
- Which one of you is Daphne?
- That'd be me.
Your uncle wanted you to enjoy
our little dinosaur exhibit.
Not so little.
If the museum's going to
keep its doors open
we need to find exciting ways
to attract young people.
'Well, there's way number one.'
- Yeah.
- Good day, mates.
Kids, meet the man responsible
for this exhibit
our museum archeologist.
Melbourne O'Reilly! Wow!
I just saw you on the cover
of last month's
"Adventure Illustrated"
hand catching Piranhas
on the Amazon.
Oh, that was nothing.
Just a day at the beach compared
to collecting them dino bones.
I guess they were
kind of heavy.
Yeah, I was lucky to get out
of the jungle with my life.
What do you mean?
'Some say there's a curse'
'on those bones.'
Whoever takes them
from their resting place
suffers the Dinosaur Spirit's
But I took 'em anyway.
- And you survived?
- Sure did.
Of course it's a bit hard
to explain
what smashed in that room
where they were
putting the thing together.
After 65 million years, I think
even its spirit
would be extinct by now.
Ha-ha, great food, eh, Scoob?
Uh-huh. Slurp.
Stay calm, everyone.
Everything will be fine.
I suppose that's the spirit
of the dinosaur?
Spirits are nothing
but wombat pucky.
Dr. Gutierrez, do you mind
if we take a look around
your museum?
Not at all.
This is Heather Lane.
A foreign exchange student
who volunteers giving tours.
Heather, if you please
a special tour for
my special amigos here.
[instrumental music]
We're one of the few museums
to exhibit
actual rocks from the moon.
Like, the moon isn't really
made out of green cheese?
Over there is the excavating
vehicle that astronauts used
to retrieve the rocks.
What's "Beta?"
The second letter
of the Greek alphabet.
Just a nickname for the vehicle.
Lots easier than saying "Igneous
petrifaction accumulator."
That would be Greek to me.
I guess you heard about
our Dinosaur Spirit.
Huh, looks like it doesn't
bother using doors.
My uncle mentioned
that the museum is built
on an old mine shaft.
Sure. That's one of our
most popular exhibits.
Right this way.
This was a working gold mine
until about 75 years ago.
Then they closed up
all the connecting tunnels.
Kind of reminds me
of the subway.
But less creepy.
What's that sound?
(Dr. Gutierrez)
'Heather, this is Dr. Gutierrez'
'could you please bring
our guests back?'
'The Cine Grande presentation
is about to begin.'
Back to the surface we go.
We will cap our evening off
with a premiere showing
of a 3D movie
on our giant Cine Grande screen.
And in the audience
is J.J. Hakimoto
the director of the documentary.
It's huge, it's scary,
it's right in your lap
J.J. Hakimoto brings you
"Giganotosaurus 3D."
But coming soon "G 3D 2
The Pandemonium Continues."
And next time, it's personal.
Ha-ha-ha. The previews
are my favorite part.
[dramatic music]
Jeepers, that is so real.
Sure is. I can practically
smell his breath.
And like it's been a while
since he's had a mint.
[crowd screaming]
Just when you thought
it was safe
to go to the museum.
What a mess.
Dr. Gutierrez,
you must be devastated.
It can all be rebuilt.
Who knows when people
hear of the excitement
attendance might skyrocket.
El Oloroso.
I am Luis Cepeda,
and I represent
the people of
The Central Valley.
You have stolen
their sacred bones.
I beg you for their
immediate return.
I have stolen nothing.
The future of the museum
rests on such exhibits.
The bones will remain
right here.
The ancient Temple of Agazar
is their rightful place.
If the bones
are not returned there
I warn you, greater disaster
will befall you.
Cepeda, good day.
You have a lot
to answer for, my friend.
[dramatic music]
He can't blame you.
No, he's right.
I brought
the Giganotosaurus here.
And if there is a beast
I must find it and capture it.
No worries, I have a plan.
A plan?
Melbourne, you are the man.
[instrumental music]
[dramatic music]
The footprints trail
in this direction.
Like, guys, there's something
weird on my shoe.
What is it, man?
I'd say,
greenish-grey-gross goo.
I'd say, resembles coprolite.
Dinosaur poop.
- Eww.
- Eww.
Hey, that's useful stuff.
I do a lot of my tracking
based on what
the beasties leave behind.
Eww! Yuck!
[music continues]
Those tunnels.
Yesterday they were boarded up.
Not today, mate,
nobody's been inside them
for over 75 years
or so they say.
Why should we ignore
an age-old tradition?
Come on.
Whoa! Look what I found.
Is that going to
make us say "Eww?"
We're rich.
Sorry, it's only iron pyrite.
Fool's gold, mate.
Well, if any fools
come through here
it's their lucky day.
So many choices.
Which way do we go?
I think it's time we split up.
Well, I'm going with Melbourne.
Me too.
Me too.
Crikey, that's not exactly
splitting up.
I'll go on my own.
You ladies go with Fred.
Shaggy and Scooby,
you make a vigorous team.
We'll meet back
in the main tunnel.
We'll just follow
these little train tracks.
And this must be
how the miners got around.
And look,
moldy miner munchies. Ah!
Well, a 75-year-old sandwich
is better than none.
This tunnel sure makes
loud echoes.
[echoing roar]
Like, tell me that's you, Scoob
I don't think it's me either.
[echoing roar]
I know that's not me!
Come on!
Huh! Huh! Huh!
Oh! Uh! Huh!
[singing in foreign language]
[singing in foreign language]
[singing continues]
[bell dings]
[dramatic music]
[all scream]
Ho-ho-hoo. We made it.
Watch out.
I don't know how to
stop this thing.
[all scream]
Now I do.
[both whimper]
[imitates a dinosaur]
Where are we?
Looks like that mine
has a hidden entrance. Hmm?
At least we all got out,
but we haven't seen O'Reilly.
'I'm alright, mates.'
I had a rough go
trying to find you kids.
- Shaggy and Scooby saved us.
- We did?
The last thing I remember
was dinosaur breath.
It smelled like my dad's
station wagon exhaust.
Somehow, I think
that's not a real dinosaur.
But somebody wants us
to believe it is.
[dramatic music]
- Eww!
- What?
You're tracking in that gunk.
Isn't that proof there
it is a real dinosaur?
No. Wait just a minute.
This stuff is bat guano.
It's the basis
of many cosmetics.
Another good reason
to keep my natural look.
It was great of Dr. Gutierrez
to let us do
some detective work here.
I'm testing Scooby's bone
through the museum's
Carbon-dating process
to find out how old it is.
I've also been running
my digital photos
through face-recognition
Maybe you'll find a clue
to who's behind
this devastating
dinosaur disaster.
Who do you think, Freddy?
Hmm, well,
it's Dr. Gutierrez's museum
and he sure wants
to get some publicity.
How about Melbourne O'Reilly?
Seems he'd do anything
to look like a hero.
He is a hero.
He said so on the magazine.
'And that Heather
sure dresses nice'
for a student
who works for free?
Well, how about
the filmmaker dude?
'Like, he's hoping
his 3D lizards'
'will smash him to a smash hit.'
And I got a funny feeling
about that Senor Cepeda
and his disaster talk.
Jinkies! According to
face recognition
'he's an international con man'
with a history of scavenging
relics to sell illegally
on the world's black market.
So Cepeda has a real reason for
wanting those dinosaur bones.
If we could only
track that dinosaur
we might get some answers.
Hey, I have a plan.
I think we can use
the facilities here
to capture that beast.
All we need is Shaggy and Scooby
to lure it out
of the mine shack.
'Like, now way, man.'
Our luring days are over.
Would you do it for
Scooby Snax industrial size?
Hey, dinosaur,
we know you're in there.
Come out with your scales up.
I think I see a cute lady
Giganotosaurus out here.
Well, Scoob, we did our best.
Like run!
[glass shatters]
Way to go, guys.
'Now, we'll catch that thing.'
Hmm! Hey, gang, I think
I figured some things out.
Get everyone to come to
the Cine Grande Theatre.
Thank you all for coming.
'Now I'd like to share with you'
'some very special
vacation photos.'
Ah, like, pass the gummy monkey.
Here we have our friend Shaggy
there is no creature living
in the mine tunnels
other than bats.
Like, nobody said
detective work was easy.
There are speakers
throughout the museum.
And as you can see,
also in the mine exhibit.
This particular one
is called a subwoofer.
It can make a sound
that sounds like..
This might also be familiar.
I believe that
these things were used to
frighten away people
who were getting too close.
'You may ask,
"Too close to what?"'
'Again our friend Shaggy
has come up with an answer.'
You can thank me later.
And also tell me why.
[Shaggy laughs]
Right. Fool's gold.
No. What Shaggy
threw away was real gold.
'Somebody has discovered
an active vein'
in the museum gold mine.
And figured out a system
to get it safely out.
If there's a Beta,
there must be an Alpha
the first letter
of the Greek alphabet.
Made over to
look like a dinosaur
someone's been using this thing
to mine the gold
and get it out
a secret entrance.
But who?
A crime, supercharged
with suspense
danger, raw human emotion.
- Uh, but I didn't do it.
- Of course not.
Our little college student
is a very talented art major.
Very capable
of designing a dinosaur
to fit over an excavator.
So she's an art major
and a gold miner. Ha ha ha.
Well, now that that is settled.
Not so fast, Senor Cepeda,
there's a bit more.
I used the museum lab to
carbon-date this bone Scooby had
and the other
Giganotosaurus bones too.
They all come
from different ages
some thousands of years apart.
In other words,
from different dinosaurs.
Senor Cepeda knew
the bones weren't authentic.
He just planted them
at those ruins
to create the legend
of the curse
'and scare people away'
'because that is where
the gold is stored'
'until it can be sold.'
[all gasp]
'When the museum became
interested in the bones'
Cepeda had hoped the curse
would scare away O'Reilly.
- Never!
- Never!
When it didn't, the dinosaur
had to become real
with Cepeda and Heather
controlling it.
This last one I just
took outside the museum.
We would have
gotten away with it
if it weren't for
you meddling turistas.
Good thing this place doesn't
have a meddle-detector
eh, Scoob? Ha ha.
Yeah. Ha ha ha.
I really want to thank you kids
for getting involved.
That's our specialty.
The gold will help pay
for repairing the museum
and it will also prove
to be an exciting
and authentic exhibit after all.
Hey, Shag, are you
gonna pitch in?
Uh, sure.
