Episode 61 – Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School
This week we cover one of the many Scooby Doo TV movies as part of our spook-tactular Halloween coverage for the month of October. One of us specifically asked to do this movie due to fond memories. Scooby Doo and the Ghoul School came at a time when the popularity of the Scooby Doo franchise was just beginning to wane. For a time, Scooby Doo was in everything, and was everywhere. Now, you’re hard pressed to see him anywhere. But why? Could this movie perhaps shed some light on that? One of us wanted this, one of us didn’t. Maybe that will give a hint. The question we usually ask ourselves is: “Do we recommend this?” To get the answer, you’ll have to take a listen and find out.
Scooby Doo and the gang visited a haunted school. After the girls are kidnapped, it’s up to Scooby and the gang to save them.
