Not up to watching a full-on horror film this Halloween? Then grab some Scooby Snacks and stick on these Mystery Inc marvels…
Scooby-Doo Meets The Boo Brothers (1987)
Fans tend to write off Scooby-Doo in the 80s due to the ever-present involvement of Scrappy, but hear me out, as the following three movies released that decade are quaint, charming fun, with the added bonus of featuring real ghosts and ghouls. In The Boo Brothers, Shaggy inherits a spooky mansion haunted by Three Stooges-alike spirits.
Scooby-Doo And The Ghoul School (1988)
For reasons that are never adequately explained, professional cowards Shaggy and Scooby agree to act as gym teachers at Miss Grimwood’s Finishing School for Girls, where all the students are daughters of famous monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Mummy. But soon the guys will have to step and protect the girls from the evil sorceress, Revolta.
Scooby-Doo And The Reluctant Werewolf (1989)
What could be scarier than Shaggy and Scooby being surrounded by monsters? How about Shaggy turning into one! Yes, in this movie – the last of this trilogy – the Shaggster comes down with a bad case of lycanthropy. Somehow this ends up with him joining Drac and his monster pack for a Wacky Races-like contest to be crowned “Monster of the Year.” Because Hanna-Barbera.
