If you’re of a certain age, you may recall a short-lived Hanna-Barbera cartoon called The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. The show – which ran a total of 13 episodes – starred Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Scrappy-Doo and Daphne (no Fred or Velma I’m afraid), alongside a warlock called Vincent Van Ghoul (voiced by Vincent Price).

The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo aired from September 1985 until December of the same year and each episode saw (most of) Mystery Inc on a ghost hunt, attempting to capture 13 ghosts that had escaped from the Chest of Demons – a sort of mystical prison. Across the 13 episodes, the gang captured 12 ghosts, leaving the show open-ended when it concluded its run.

Open-ended until now.


In February 2019, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is set to release Scooby-Doo and the 13th Ghost – a conclusion to the series. The film is written by Tim Sheridan and directed by Cecilia Aranovich Hamilton and executive produced by Sam Register.
