The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo

Unlike most Scooby-Doo shows, the ghosts in this series were real. In the first episode, a couple of ghosts trick Shaggy and Scooby into opening a magical chest and unleash 13 ghosts. Vincent Van Ghoul (a powerful warlock voiced by Vincent Price and looking like him) assists them in hunting down and recapturing the ghosts. Scooby and Shaggy travel around the work with Daphne, Scrappy, and a new character named Flim-Flam, a young boy who is also a kind of street-wise con artist (a little like Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom). Fred and Velma weren't part of this series.

Scooby's parents appear in one episode.
