Trivia

The series itself ran for only 13 episodes. Since the first episode is the pilot where all the ghosts are released and in the sixth episode, "Ship of Ghouls" they were only recapturing the ghosts that were re-released in the episode, the gang only ended up catching 11 ghosts, not 13... so there are still two left out there somewhere.

Quotes

Vincent VanGhoul: This is a warning to all living mortals/that whom should ever open this chest of demons/will release thirteen of the most terrifying ghosts/upon the face of the earth.

Only you can return the demons to the chest! Why us? Because you let them out!
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I at first never really cared for the whole scooby doo thing over the years. But out of nowhere this show arrived. And it was different in every way. First real ghosts and no people in costumed gave it a different approach taking a cue from Ghostbusters giving a dark atmosphere while maintaining the lightheartedness the series is known for. Although this only got 13 episodes (typical for an early show, we'll never see what ghost 12 or 13 was), it is still a good show. The voice acting is spot on (especially for Casey Kasem doing Shaggy), but the show stealer is Vincent Price with his comic serious demeanor and dark tone, he gives it life. You owe it to yourself to watch...
