A Scooby-Doo mystery solved? ‘The Curse of the 13th Ghost’ digs up old secrets

Whatever happened to The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo? That question will at last be answered Feb. 5 when Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost comes to DVD.

The new feature-length adventure starring the meddling kids of Mystery Inc. revisits a more macabe time (1985), when Scooby, Shaggy and Daphne — along with Scrappy-Doo and a mischievous boy named Flim-Flam — teamed up on Saturday mornings with the warlock Vincent Van Ghoul to scour the world for spirits who escaped from the creepy Chest of Demons and return them to their proper place of imprisonment.

Yeah, Shag and Scoob were the ones responsible for letting the ghosts and goblins escape in the first place, but to be fair they were tricked into opening the Chest, and at least they tried to set things right.

Why does this matter more than two decades later? Scooby-Doo and the Curse of the 13th Ghost attempts to wrap up the gang’s unfinished business:

After the Mystery Inc. gang goofed up a case and nabbed an innocent man, they’re forced into early retirement from crime solving. It’s not long however, before their old friend Vincent Van Ghoul needs help and pulls the team right back into action. The gang has unfinished business they must tend to, which involves catching a ghost that previously got away. It all happened one summer while Velma and Freddy where away at camp. Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and Daphne secretly hunted down 12 of the world’s spookiest ghosts but failed to catch the most evil one of them all…the 13th ghost.

Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost is available for pre-order now, and its predecessor The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo is already available on DVD.

If you’re in the mood for something more akin to the gang’s long-ago team-ups with real-life celebrities, check out the recent DVD release Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost featuring superstar chefs Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis — it’s exactly as bananas as it sounds.
