Scooby Doo: A Tiki Scare Is No Fair

In my post earlier this summer about a totally groovy, early-’70s Hanna-Barbera-themed party I went to, I mentioned a “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?” episode where the gang goes on a Hawaiian vacation; the episode had generated some discussion on Tiki Central. It’s titled “A Tiki Scare is No Fair,” and it aired on October 17, 1970. I haven’t seen the whole episode, but Warner Bros. has posted the last two minutes of the episode on YouTube to promote Scooby-Doo.com. This clip includes a dramatic chase through a thatch-covered hut, a giant robot-monster-Aztec-tiki god thing (which probably makes more sense if you’ve seen the episode), a suspicious witch doctor, and the requisite totally-shocking unmasking. It’s worth watching for Fred & Daphne’s spastic dance alone, but those who have harbored a secret Velma crush will thrill to see her swingin’ her hula hips.

    On a related Scooby Doo note, I dunno if you and Hanford are fans of Venture Brothers, but last night’s episode had the most hilarious and devastating parody of the Mystery Machine crew that I’ve ever seen.

  2. Humuhumu Says:

    I’ve never seen that show — I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.

    I was wondering do you know what vhs that tiki scare is no fair on
