[instrumental music]
What in the world's that sound?
It is not of this world.
It's the demons.
Great Scott,
they're stalking us. Run!
[instrumental music]
So this is Africa?
Looks more like Cincinnati.
There are modern cities
all over Africa, Shaggy.
'Zamba have the nearest airport
to the Hatari Game Preserve.'
'And that's where our
video safari begins.'
Imagine real lions, elephants,
cheetahs, zebras.
Up until now I've only met
the animal cracker kind.
Many species are vanishing
from this part of Africa
and not just
the endangered ones.
I wanted to go on this trip
and put them on tape
while we still can.
And cut.
Okay, uh,
try another take, girls
but this time with a
little more sincerity.
Freddie, please save your
video verite for the animals.
Sorry, guess I'm eager
to try out the new attachments
letterbox panoramic framing.
'Hmm, too bad
it cuts off your heads.'
Like, Fred, at least
I won't have to worry
about smiling
with my mouth full.
There'll be plenty
of time to tape us
when we reach the safari.
Excuse me,
you're on the safari?
Yup, we're gonna
video the big game
except for maybe
the taller giraffes.
Well, we're on it too.
It's a thrilling trip.
We know because we've done it
three times before.
You could call this
our fourth honeymoon.
I'm Honey Hunsecker,
and this is my husband Henry.
Henry and Honey Hunsecker.
Ha ha, like I just
had to say that myself.
We're Fred, Velma, Daphne,
Shaggy and Scooby-Doo
documentarians extraordinaire.
Have you heard the rumors
that there might be
some trouble
with the animals vanishing?
Trouble? Not a word.
The worst
you have to worry about
might be the instant changes
in weather.
[all screaming]
He he he.
That's an interesting word.'
'It means danger in Swahili.'
'Zoinks! Why didn't we
pick a place'
'that means teens eat free?'
'Which reminds me
I packed a sandwich.'
[instrumental music]
Hey, fellas, back off.
Wait! This is my only
free lunch snack.
Wow! Animals already
except I didn't realize
there'd be so many bugs.
And the humidity
has totaled my hair.
Better get used to it. It's
800 miles to the next salon.
Good thing I brought my own.
Provides a firm hold
and kills insects.
He he he.
(male #1)
'Jacko! Where are you Jacko?'
Have you seen Jacko?
He's about this high, fuzzy.
Oh, there you are.
We'll be joining your safari,
name's Lloyd Mbuku.
I'm in this souvenir
T-shirt game.
And of course that's Jacko.
- Mr. and Mrs. Hunsecker.
- Hiya, Cap'n.
Folks, meet Cap'n Robbie Kumbazi
from Cape Town College.
Ahoy, cap'n. So you'll be
taking us down the river?
I plan to, but you guys have
come at kind of a bad time.
I thought we beat the monsoons.
If only it were just that.
The animals on the preserve
seem to be thinning out.
Yes, we've heard about
your endangered species.
It's even stranger than that.
Dr. Goodfew
even traveled out here
to try figure out
what's going on.
The Joan Goodfew,
the famous zoologist?
I've been tagging the animals
in this preserve
to track their habits
but lately all I'm finding
are the tags and no animals.
It's awful.
Good thing you're here.
Wish I could
say the same about you.
I believe that civilization's
what's frightening
creatures away.
I frown on video safaris.
Frown? No, smile.
Guess she hasn't heard yet
about the demon warnings.
What demon warnings? I haven't
listened to the news today.
Stories have come back
from west of the Ocuzi river
about the shape-shifting
jungle demons.
Supposedly angered by
the animals disappearance
'they attack in the form of
mysterious, ferocious beasts.'
Hm, who would have thought
we'd find a mystery
as far away as Africa.
So I guess leaving this instant
is out of the question?
The animals are in trouble.
Maybe our documentary
could help in someway.
I'm happy
to take you down river.
I just can't
promise you what to expect.
Well, we are going too.
I have my big,
strong fella to protect me.
Oh, no need to worry, me and my
boat never go west of the Ocuzi.
Ah, much better.
Okay, look-look lazy!
No problem.
Well, this isn't so bad.
Snacks, cool breezes, and the CD
I burned of my favorite tunes.
And like best of all, ha ha
no dangerous jungle beasts.
Ah! Sunset on the Ocuzi River.
Nothing like it, eh, Henry?
Makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Let's hope the animals
stay that way too.
I've been searching the shore
for animal populations.
So far, nothing.
They were thriving out there
just a few months ago.
Where could they have gone?
Wish I knew, but we'll be
reaching a fertile veld
in the morning that usually
attracts creatures
from miles around.
Nice hat, Daph.
Now your outfit's complete.
Sure is.
Look what I came up with.
Bug blinds.
[music on headphones]
- Zoinks!
- Yikes!
- Double yikes!
- Yikes!
Muah, muah, muah.
Great fear reaction, guys!
Let's go for the reverse angle.
I got some great shots with this
infrared night scope feature.
Hey, wait a minute.
Look at this.
Do you think that's a
shape-shifting jungle demon?
Hard to tell.
[instrumental music]
What's that?
Like, whatever that is
it's coming from
the scary side of the river!
Keep calm. I'm steering away.
The rapids! They're too strong!
[all screaming]
We're off course! We're heading
for Kamahara falls.
I need help!
[all screaming]
[all groaning]
[all cheering]
We did it! We're safe!
Yes! We're safe, we're safe!
Do you realize where we are?
We're stranded on
land west of the Ocuzi River.
Ooh hoo-hoo-hoo!
Like, we're not so safe!
Hey! You made it!
- So did you! Great!
- Yeah! great!
But what about the Hunseckers?
Haven't seen them.
Hope they're alright.
I found them!
We just wanted
a moment to reminisce.
That catastrophe reminded us
of our wedding night
at Niagara Falls.
Those people
are so darn chipper.
I found this wallet.
Belongs to Mr. Mbuku.
I'm glad we all survived
the river.
Normally, we would've been
eaten by crocodiles.
Like, that's one meal
I can live without.
But there's something strange.
- 'Why are they glowing?'
- Because they are demons.
- Let's get out of here!
- Do we have a map?
We lost the maps in the rapids
but if we just
follow the river back
we should have no trouble
getting to the preserve.
There are more and more things
that need to be explained.
Well, here's another one.
That T-shirt salesman Mbuku?
Inside his wallet,
there's a police badge.
Are we there yet?
We've only been walking
for 15 minutes.
Seems like forever.
This place needs AC.
It's too hot.
Yeah, too hot.
- There's a watering hole.
- With animals!
'Oh, look dear!'
Show time!
Let's keep our distance.
Don't frighten them.
Yeah, but how do we keep them
from frightening us?
Don't worry. They're herbivores.
You know vegetarians?
Not Shag-atarians.
Looks like they're pretty
We finally found some wildlife!
But at a big watering hole
like this
there should be
lots more than two.
(Dr. Goodfew)
'There certainly should.'
- Dr. Goodfew.
- How did you get out here?
I'm following the river
searching for
any remaining animals.
At least these two are alright
but their herds
are drastically thin.
Do you believe this demon story?
I believe that animals
are shrinking
from the invasion
of modern life.
Your serve!
I frown on fraternization
between man and beast.
Just once she could smile.
Kind of a coincidence
that she'd appear out here
in the lands
of the demon legend.
It's too hot
to proceed any further.
Let's rest and resume walking
after it cools off tonight.
And cut! Very real.
Very convincing.
Phew! And a good idea.
[flute music]
Game called
on account of demons!
Hanging our things from vines.
Great idea, Daphne.
Something I remembered
from bonfire girls.
Keeps everything safe from mud,
moisture, and soldier ants.
Not to mention lions,
leopards, and snakes.
Oh, my!
That's not what we
have to worry about here.
But for a place
that's scarce on animals
it's odd
there are so many bugs.
Huh! If there were
this many bugs where I lived
like, I'd be scarce too!
[animals growling]
Yikes! The demons
of the jungle are back!
Everyone split up!

[song continues]
[flute music]
Well, if anyone asks whether
demon animals are shape-shifting
around this jungle,
like, I have the answer.
I'm not so sure
that's what's happening.
Well, one thing
I'm sure of is that we're lost
in the middle of a huge,
thick jungle.
Excuse me, cap'n. I thought you
said we didn't have a map.
Uh, I was saving it
for an emergency.
So, I guess this emergency tops
all our other emergencies.
Why didn't you tell us
you had it?
Okay, it's a map
of this side of the river.
I have a claim to a secret
uranium field on this land.
You own uranium, and you're
still piloting a riverboat?
One feeds the pocket,
the other feeds the soul.
Well, now that
we're hopelessly lost
I guess we'll be using
your secret map?
You can put your thumb
over the uranium part.
I can't find Jocko anywhere.
My monkey's missing!
Zoinks! So is Scooby!
Scooby-Doo, where are you?
Jocko! Jocko!
Perhaps now would be
a good time to tell us
why a T-shirt salesman
is carrying a police badge.
- You know?
- Yes.
And now we need to know why.
Alright, I'm actually
Sergeant Inspector Mbuku
with the Malawi Police
here to investigate
the animals disappearing.
Why didn't you
just tell us that?
I'm undercover.
Jocko! Jocko, calm down, boy.
Ten little monkeys
jumping on the bed ♪
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ♪
Hm hmm hmm.. ♪♪
Like, this is no time
for joking around.
We've gotta find Scooby.
He's my best friend.
I'd hardly call that joking,
but I have an idea.
Are you my Juliet ♪
'Cause you're too cute.. ♪♪
Good goin', Velma.
When he can't hear that weird
music, he's back to normal.
Why is he still glowing?
Complexion glow with aloe.
Makes for a great makeup base
on Halloween.
'He wants you to follow him.'
He can lead us to Scooby.
Scooby, where are you, old
buddy, old pal, old friend?
So the shape-shifters
we were warned about
are just real animals
covered with makeup
and hyped up
by that weird music.
Who would want to perform
such dastardly deeds?
Look, guys.
We're back at the river.
Hey, what's that boat
doing here?
(Dr. Goodfew)
'Good question.'
Dr. Goodfew.
Is that your cargo boat?
I was about to ask you
the same thing.
It gives me the willies. I think
we should just leave it be.
Is Scooby on that boat?
Could be. I think we should go
aboard and explore.
[Scooby howls]
'Scoob! Is that you?'
They're here!
And the animals
from the watering hole.
Comin', Scoob!
Aah! Whoa! Aah!
- 'Scooby!'
- Raggy!
I have a feeling I know
who's behind all this.
[all growling]
Just stand still, Henry.
[flute music]
You both are under arrest.
A monkey family reunion.
Why would this nice couple
take all the animals?
Stealing innocent animals
out of the jungle?
It must be for their own gain.
That's it. They're poachers.
W-we don't harm any of them.
There are lots of rich people in
the States who want exotic pets.
Treating these beautiful beasts
as pets would harm them all.
Well, thanks to you
we won't have to worry
about that any longer.
Velma and I figured out
why there were so many bugs
when there were no animals.
Bugs are impervious to sound
and this sound controlled
the animals.
Oh, get away from him,
you floozie!
These two were just a little
too lovey-dovey.
That's because Honey
operated a remote transmitter
on Henry's shoulder which
activated broadcasting equipment
on that boat.
The flute music fed
into that demon's net
and covered that buzzing sound
which was geared
to hypnotize animals.
[flute music stops]
So that's how
they could attract animals
and make them act strange
and scary.
Yeah and even shy,
snooty, and silly.
[all laughing]
Come on, you two.
Let's see how you
like being stuck in the hole.
I told you those kids
were meddling.
No, I told you,
and I also told you
we should have
gone back to Niagara Falls.
The only thing
we can poach there is eggs.
We should be upriver
by nightfall.
Well, Fred,
once again, you're our hero.
We should have a great
about saving animals.
No, you're the hero, Daphne,
nabbing the Hunseckers.
What made you think
they were the culprits?
With all the bugs, snakes,
blistering heat, humidity
and flesh-eating plants around
here, it's great for adventure
but not for romantic honeymoons.
[all laughing]
[elephant trumpets]
Yikes! Not again!
Hey, man,
would you look at that?
'They're performing
for our video.'
That's it. Energy, energy.
Act natural.
Do you know what they're saying?
Scooby Dooby-Doo!
