(female #1)
'For making the city of the
Pacoima, California disappear'
to being encased for a week
in a giant cube of gelatin
'Rufus Raucous had made
magic crazy fresh'
'for a new generation of fans.'
Now strapped
to the wheel of misfortune
'by his lovely
assistant Phylidia'
'he'll attempt a daring escape'
'from inside this historic
Las Vegas hotel'
'as it's demolished
by a 10 ton wrecking ball.'
[intense music]
I'm Nancy Chang
with the exclusive live report.
Rufus Raucous is still inside.
This is horrible.
Stop the camera!
Stop the camera!
'Here we are, gang.
Las Vegas, Nevada.'
'Just think, we get
to see the Eiffel Tower'
'the canals of Venice
and Ancient Rome
'without going to Europe.'
Like I've never seen so many
all-you-can-eat buffets.
Viva Las Vegas!
Reah. Riva ras regas.
Look at all the shops.
'There's a world-class
art collection'
'at the Garagio,
a Broadway style theater.'
It's Rats the musical.'
I hear Vegas
has some of the best
Elvis Impersonators
in the world.
[imitating Elvis]
Hey, uh, thank you, ma'am.
Thank you very much.
My sunglasses!
But I can't do
my Elvis without 'em.
Oops! Darn these fragile,
imported sunglasses.
- Hey, there's our destination.
- 'Newark, Newark.'
'Las Vegas' first
New Jersey themed resort.'
I'm guessing it's Las Vegas'
only New Jersey themed resort.
'And the site of the biggest
concert event of the year.'
Teen pop sensation Lindsay
Pagano's headlining debut
which we just so happen
to have backstage passes for.
Thanks to Shaggy and Scooby.
You guys really wanted to go
backstage and meet Lindsay, huh?
No, Fred,
we wanna go backstage
and eat the catering spread.
You must be our lucky
radio-contest winners.
Welcome to Newark Newark .
I'm Del Stone.
I run the joint.
Thanks for having us, Mr. Stone.
Uh, I'm curious, Mr. Stone.
What made you decide on a New
Jersey theme for your resort?
Somebody already had
a pirate ship hotel
so we went
with our second choice.
Now that makes perfect sense.
Uh, it's a joke, kid.
Well, shall we?
Everything about this theater
is state-of-the-art.
Except for the name.
The Spectacular Spackle Dome?
Corporate sponsorship.
Believe it or not.
Spackle is one
of Newark's biggest exports.
That's a good one, Mr. Stone.
Uh, that wasn't a joke, son.
We do our best to respect
the whole Newark theme.
Like, are creepy black cats
a part of the theme?
Darn cat!
'It seemed to vanish
under that statue.'
Like, make that
a floating statue.
Froating statue?
Guys, it's a statue
of the late, great magician
Rufus Raucous.
was his signature trick.
- No wires.
- Hmm.
That kid was the greatest
showman I'd known since Elvis.
You knew Elvis?
'Rufus was supposed to be the
Spackle Dome's main attraction.'
The theater was designed
specifically to house his show.
Sadly, it was not to be.
Well, why don't you go in
and check out rehearsal?
I've got to see a maintenance
man about a vanishing cat.
Disappearing black cats?
Spooky dead magicians?
I don't think our luck
could get any worse, Scoob.
Or maybe it could!
Oh baby baby
you told me I'm your queen ♪
It's funny how you show it
always acting so mean ♪
My heart is broken
and I'm feeling kind of low ♪
If you think I love you boy
you're living in denial ♪
So rise up dude and comment
or she'll bury you in style ♪♪
Talk about a lavish production.
[man in eerie voice]
'Get out!'
Oh, hey, ha ha ha.
It's part of the show.
Just a big scary face
on the monitor..
that can shoot fireballs.
It looks like Rufus Raucous.
Or his ghost.
On that note,
like goodnight, everybody!
Well, whatever it is,
it's not a Lindsay Pagano fan.
Well, that was totally weird.
It looked like
Rufus Raucous' ghost.
You really think
it was a ghost?
I don't know.
Oh, by the way, I'm Fred.
This is Daphne, Velma,
Shaggy and Scooby-Doo.
We're the lucky contest winners.
Actually, I'm the lucky one.
I mean, you saved my life.
Hey, I'm gonna get lunch
in a little bit.
- You wanna join me?
- Oh, no, thanks.
I-I just ate an energy bar.
I'm super full.
The ghost again!
Let's get out of here!
It's Fate's Fools!
Flapjack, B-ball and Timmy.
They're only, like, my favorite
boy band in the whole world!
They're my opening act.
Hey, what's with all
the flappity lip flip?
We're totally trying
to kick it chilly willie
and you peeps are bumming
our van winkles
with all this bogus
woofering and tweetering.
What did he say?
It's too noisy out here!
We're trying to rest
our vocal chords for the show.
Sorry, I'll try to keep
it down the next time
a ghost tries to kill me.
Oh, shiver me timbers.
Ha ha ha.
Is everyone alright?
I heard there was a disturbance.
Lindsay's all wiggity
with the boo-hoo, sir.
Might be funkalicious
if me and my boyos
headline in her place.
Nice try, Flapjack,
but I wouldn't give up
my first headlining gig in Vegas
because of a stupid ghost.
There's not going
to be any show.
I'm canceling it
until we discover
who or what is responsible
for this damage.
My show just can't get canceled.
Well, we could help ferret
out the ghost.
We've solved a few mysteries
in our day.
That is so generous
and brave of you.
Look, Scoob, the green room.
Maybe that's where they keep,
like, salads and vegetables.
The ghost!
- What's up, guys?
- Like, we are.
The ghost brought
these cables to life.
A cable that leaks water.
Like, that ghost
was hovering over there
'near the rack of costumes.'
Like, the ghost has got Scooby!
No, the floor does.
The metal on his collar
is stuck.
It's like the floor
is magnetized.
And the cable that snagged
Shaggy and Scooby is hydraulic.
When water is forced
through it, it moves.
This theater was designed
for Rufus Raucous, remember?
These elaborate illusions
are probably built right in.
Italian silk!
The mask the ghost was wearing.
Whoever was wearing
it probably ditched it
so they could slip out
of the theater unnoticed.
Or blend in
with the people inside.
Like a certain boy band that
wanted to steal the top spot
from my good friend Lindsay
who sometimes lets me
borrow her clothes?
Go for it, girl.
I've got doubles.
Love you!
Hey, what about Del Stone?
Like, why would he want
to sabotage his own theater?
Well, Del Stone doesn't
own this place.
He's just the manager,
he was losing his shirt
and he sold
to a big conglomerate.
Perhaps Mr. Stone wants to ruin
the hotel out of spite.
There's one sure way
to find out.
Let's split up, gang.
Shaggy, Scooby and I will
check out Mr. Stone.
Great, and Lindsay, Velma
and I can check out some shops.
Excuse me, uh, Mr. Stone?
Looks like Mr. Stone
is trying to give us the slip.
I suddenly have a craving
for steamed dumplings.
- Who's that?
- He can't see us.
Maybe if I disguise my voice,
I can pump him for info.
[imitating Elvis]
Ahem. Thank you.
Thank you very much.
Engelbert Humperdinck?
Uh, yeah.
I tell you, Eng,
Vegas has changed.
I've got to sneak away
just to take a steam bath.
I know what you mean, boss.
Viva Las Vegas.
Kickin' it old school.
TCB, takin' care of business.
Boy, you said it, Eng.
Say, boss, you know anything
about this ghost business
with that magician fella?
That's no ghost.
Rufus Raucous would have
to be dead to be a ghost.
[Normal voice]
What? He's not dead?
Who is that?
Hey, dogs aren't allowed
in here.
- Dog?
- And neither are nosy kids!
And your Engelbert Humperdinck
impression stinks.
So did you girls find anything?
Look what I got!
I couldn't resist.
There she is,
Rufus Raucous' former assistant
Phylidia Flanders.
Please welcome
the comedy slash
magic stylings
of Mr. Wacky Pants.
Ladies and gentlemen,
and you know what you are.
I learned everything
I know about magic
from my ex-wife, you see.
She made my bank account, my car
and my house disappear.
Now I'll need two volunteers.
Like, we haven't had
a bite all day!
Well, here you go then!
The human puzzle box!
Now, now, now, now,
don't look so worried.
The only thing I ever
made vanish was my hair.
Watch the stomach.
It's my best feature.
Uh, seriously,
I just got this trick.
I need help.
Ugh, so do we.
Faked his death? No.
Rufus couldn't walk away
from the spotlight.
He loved magic too much.
He wouldn't have
left me to scrape out
a living with a hack
like Wacky Pants.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
And what is this?
Oh-oh, more kooks who think
Rufus Raucous is still alive?
He's just jealous.
Once Rufus came
on the scene
guys like Wacky Pants went out
of fashion pretty quickly.
Look, Rufus isn't coming back.
Here, this ought
to convince you.
It's the footage
from his last stunt.
Guys, little help, please!
There's no way
he got out of there.
Can you play that last part
again, Velma ?
'Like, what's that?'
'It's a little line around'
'computer-generated effects.'
Sometimes you see it
in music videos.
So then maybe
that's not real concrete
falling down on Rufus.
'If it's layered over
the original image'
'I should be able
to strip it away.'
'Hey, it is a digital image.'
'Look, he went
through the floor.'
This must have
been pre-recorded
before the building
actually came down.
And they spliced it
into the broadcast
so it looked like
it was happening live.
Hey, remember how Scooby
chased that cat
and it just vanished
under the statue?
Maybe that's where
the trapdoor is.
Fred, you may be onto something.
Look, gang,
a dark, spooky tunnel.
Dark and spooky.
No good ever comes
from dark and spooky.
[bell clinks]
Guys, it's a mannequin
of the great Houdini
the famous illusionist.
Do you guys see all
this old magic stuff?
'See with your eyes,
not with your hands.'
'Those things are priceless.'
Like, it's the ghost
of Rufus Raucous!
It is Rufus Raucous.
Hey, you're Lindsay Pagano
right on.
You mean you're not
trying to keep her
from performing
in your theater?
My theater?
You mean that fun house
upstairs? Nah.
I'm not about
that kind of stuff.
That's why I left,
to get back to street magic.
I've got some amazing
new tricks in the works.
Well, like, if you're
the real Rufus Raucous
then who's that?
Here I come Vegas ♪
Give me all your glitter
and gold ♪
Here I come Vegas ♪
7 come 11 gonna
soothe my soul ♪
Abracadabra alakazam ♪
I'm shinin' like a diamond
in the hot desert sand ♪
Gettin' my kicks
on the Las Vegas strip ♪
I'm a hotshot sureshot
bangin' on a jackpot ♪
Here I come here I come ♪
Here I come Vegas ♪
Give me all your glitter
and gold ♪
Here I come Vegas ♪
7 come 11 gonna

Here I come Vegas ♪
Give me all your glitter
and gold ♪
Here I come Vegas ♪♪
Thank you, ladies and germs.
For my first illusion,
I shall make
the audience disappear.
'Phylidia is working
for Mr. Wacky Pants?'
That jerk was after
my secrets for years.
With Phylidia at his side,
he may finally have them.
But he doesn't seem to use them.
Unless he's saving them
for a surprise appearance
at the Spackle Dome.
There's one way to find out.
We'll have to set a trap.
Rufus, you up for it?
A chance to save Phylidia
from Wacky Pants?
Definitely, count me in.
Majorly on diggity,
someone's gonna pay for this.
Rufus Raucous, the magician
the world watched perish
on this very site will return
tonight seemingly from the dead.
Is this for real?
I don't know.
but I do know
I reported it first.
- Velma, you ready?
- I'm not coming out.
Just follow my lead.
You'll be fine.
(male #1)
'Please welcome the one,
the only Rufus Raucous!'
I don't blame you
for doubting it's me
but I intend to prove
it the only way I know how.
By astounding you
using only a deck of cards
and my bare hands.
[instrumental music]
Oh, sorry.
Could you pick those up, Velma?
Now nothing up my sleeve.
'Like I said,
using only my hands.'
Uh, jinkies!
Velma, lend me a hand?
No way, these are mine.
There's a new face in magic
Scooby, Shaggy, now!
[instrumental music]
'Magnetic polarity. Hmm.'
Like the ghost is grounded!
Thanks to magnets
in its shoes.
The same magnets
it used to levitate.
'Hey, let me out!'
Like, where'd he go?
It's time to bring
the curtain down
on Mr. Wacky Pants' career.
'Phylidia Flanders.'
Rufus' assistant?
So, that's how the ghost knew
all of Rufus' tricks.
Mr. Wacky Pants seemed
like an obvious suspect
but he couldn't even do
the simplest magic tricks.
The biggest clue, though,
was Rufus' cat.
It wasn't afraid of the ghost.
Thus the ghost had
to have been someone
who was close to Rufus.
Hence, Phylidia.
But why, Phylidia?
Because after you disappeared
I was supposed to step
into the spotlight.
I knew all your tricks.
I would've made millions
but Del Stone wouldn't hear it.
So you wanted
to ruin Del stone.
That's right.
And I would have succeeded
if not for you meddling kids.
Well, you'll have plenty of time
to develop
your own act
where you're going.
Yeah, like, as long as you don't
try any escape tricks.
[all laughing]
My heart is broken
and I'm feelin' kind of low ♪
If you think I love you boy
you're livin' in denial ♪♪
I wanna thank you kids
for solving the mystery
and for luring Rufus
out of retirement.
He's agreed to play
the Spackle Dome
a few times a year.
On my terms.
Hey, Scoob, I think
we finally found
the motherload
of backstage grub!
'Like, those are the biggest
fruit salads I've ever seen!'
Some guys are like veggies ♪
Some guys are like pie ♪
But there's a party fella ♪
Who's the apple of my eye ♪
Yet all his friends
are peaches ♪
Sweet as sweet can be ♪
But why he doesn't know ♪
It is a mystery to me ♪
Life's a bowl of cherries ♪
And you're really cute ♪
Let me show you I love you ♪
With a basket of fruits ♪♪
Hey, look at Shaggy and Scooby.
Scooby Dooby Doo!
