Let go of me!

Okay, now I really have a wedgie.

Fred! Velma!

Can you guys hurry it up?

This ghost keeps grabbing...



Fred. Come in, Fred.

- Fred! Can you hear me?

- Fredster here, Velms.

Shockingly, Daphne's been

captured again. That's okay.

When the Luna Ghost

rounds the corner with Daphne...

...Shaggy and Scooby will pop out

of the barrel...

You'll activate the conveyor belt,

spilling the oil onto the floor.

Just remember my plan.

Like, chill out, Scooby-Doo.

Stop shaking.

Me? That's you.

Right. It's me. Sorry.

Scooby-Doo, what are you doing, man?

Like, this is no time to...

Oh, boy.

Like, there's a ghost right behind me,

isn't there?


Go, Shaggy! Go!

- Run!

- Like, I'm trying, buddy!

Fred, now!

Hurry up!

- I got him.

- Look out!


- Sorry, Velma.

- I know, Fred.

- Where's the ghost?

- He's right behind us.


Is he still after us, Scoob?


- Zoinks! Grab the hook!

- Hold on, Shaggy!

Daphne, are you okay?

I'm so over this

damsel-in-distress nonsense.

Where's Shagster?

- Like, I'm right here, man.

- Me too.

Scoob, that was fun. Let's grab

another skateboard and do it again.


There you go.

One for you.

Good-looking guy.

All right, nice to see you.

- Thanks for saving the factory.

- Pam, any comments?

This is a victory for any celebrity who

wants to make a quality action figure.

- What's the secret of your success?

- Teamwork.

I do a tremendous amount of teamwork,

and I always have a plan. Come on.

Yeah, my plan.

I knew from the start there was no

phantom. The Luna Ghost is, in fact...

- Old Man Smithers?

- The creepy janitor?

He wanted revenge after you

refused to go out with him.

How could you, Pam? I'm a lover-boy

of George Clooney-an proportions.

- Fred, how was the ghost able to fly?

- I can answer that. Watch.

These balloons fill with a highly

potent helium synthesis... the Luna Ghost...

...his weightless appearance.

I would have gotten away with it too,

if it weren't for you meddling kids...

...and your dumb dog!

I'll get you for this!


Fred, I can't believe you took credit

for my plan again.

Some plan. That ghost pawed me

for an hour and a half.

It's not our fault you always

get kidnapped.

I don't always get kidnapped.

Can't believe you'd say that.

Oh, please.

You come with your own ransom note.

- My glasses!

- Who's helpless now?

I'm going to kill you, Daphne!

Watch the ascot!

You guys, look, I know I'm just

the dude that carries the bags...

...but we all play an important part

in this group.

I mean, we're just like a big,

delicious banana split.

Fred, you're the big banana.

Daphne, you're the pastrami and

gum-flavored ice cream. And Velma...'re the sweet-and-sour mustard

sauce that goes on top.

That sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

You know what, Shaggy? You've really

put it in perspective for me.


I quit.

- No.

- No way.

You can't quit. I was gonna quit in,

like, two seconds.

Now everyone will think

I copied off the smart girl.

Now, wait a minute.

Maybe I quit.

I do. Yeah, I quit.

I'm out of here.

Good riddance.


No. Don't go.

Come on, you guys, don't do this.

Please don't go.

Do I quit?

No, Scoob...

...friends don't quit.

It looks like it's just you

and me for a while.

What now, Shaggy?

I guess we'll all just do

what we do best, Scoob.

This is primo.

Man, talk about toasted.

Man, the only thing I like better

than an eggplant burger... a chocolate-covered

eggplant burger.

With hot sauce.

Yeah, just another beautiful day

in paradise.

I'm looking for a "Mr. Rogers"

and a "Mr. Doo." The detectives?

It's probably somebody looking for us

to solve some scary mystery.

Nobody home!

Quick, Scoob-o, grab the food-o,

let's scram-o.

I'm looking for a "Mr. Rogers"

and a "Mr. Doo."

Let's go!

I'm sorry, dude. I'd love to help you

out. You look like a really nice guy.

We're not detectives anymore.

I've been sent by Mr. Emile

Mondevarious to invite you... his amusement park,

Spooky Island.

We don't go near places with "spooky,"

"haunted," or "creepy" in the name.

- Or hydrocolonic.

- Right, but that's for another reason.

But he'd like you to solve a mystery.

He'll pay you a fee of $10,000.

It's just, materialism

is not really our bag, man.

- Free airfare.

- No, thanks.

- Room and board.

- No, thanks.

And all you can eat.

All you can eat?


Velma? Are you going this way?

- How have you...?

- Been?

- Yes.

- Great.

I'm on the lecture circuit

with my new book...

- ...Fred on Fred: The Many Faces of Me.

- Jinkies, that's impressive.

And yourself?

I've been working at NASA, developing

hydropowered missile defense systems.

But, more importantly...

- ...I'm on a journey of self-discovery.


Charter service to Spooky Island

will begin boarding momentarily.

What do you mean I can't have

seven carry-on bags?

- That's so economy.

- Crap.

Oh, no. I'm not talking to you guys.

- What are you doing here?

- Isn't it obvious?

We all received the same letter

from one Emile Mondevarious...

...the reclusive owner

of Spooky Island.

It's not fair. I was gonna solve

the mystery all by myself.

- And when you get caught?

- I'm a black belt now.

I've transformed my body

into a dangerous weapon.

It's true.

Far out. I guess we're, like,
