The Top 15 Scooby Doo Moments You Want to Relive
Here are the 15 best Scooby-Doo moments that made this legendary such a big hit in touching the lives of children:
1. A Night of Fright is no Delight. (8.8)
Definitely the best episode of the entire franchise! With the very popular element of a lonely millionaire on whose death anyone of his heirs inherits the entire property on one condition which is obviously very very controversial. Here, Scooby inherits the properties of a millionaire for his heroic deed of saving the Colonel while he was drowning in a fish pond. The condition was to spend a night in the haunted mansion of the Colonel and if you survive it, you inherit his millions. A series of very creepy incidents takes place with the gang and at the end they see the heirs in a coffin each and an empty dog-shaped coffin. Talk about being as scary as hell! But still, the gang figures out that it was all the work of the lawyer who was dealing with the will. Scooby finally inherits everything but later realizes it’s useless confederate money. The episode ends with a floating bone, which obviously doesn’t scare Scooby!
2. Scooby’s Night with a Frozen Fright. (8.7)
The gang goes out to fish and Shaggy catches a caveman frozen into a block of ice. They take him to Oceanland and give him to Professors Wayne and Ingstrom. At night the caveman breaks through and while the gang comes back to retrieve Shaggy’s fishing pole, they are followed with a night of thrill and chasing by the man only to find out that it was Professor Wayne all throughout cause he wanted to steal Ingstrom’s revolutionary new marine life communicator. A very amusing episode indeed!
