The New Scooby-Doo Movies (1972)

"Wednesday is Missing"

The third episode in The New Scooby-Doo Movies is certainly the best so far. In the film, the Mystery Machine and its gang are driving through the swamp when once again the van ends up crippled. Being unable to drive, the group is visited by Lurch who then takes them to the creepy castle, which is owned by the Addams' Family. Soon the gang must start an investigation when Wednesday goes missing. Again, there's no doubt that this third episode was the best of the series up to this point because it just has so many laughs and quite a bit of imagination. Unlike the earlier episodes, this one here makes good use of the supporting players as everyone in the Addams' clan is perfectly used. This is especially true for the terrific Lurch who is simply wonderful here and especially his introduction in the swamp. Both Gomez and Morticia are all extremely fun here as is It, Uncle Fester (voiced by Jackie Coogan) and Pugsley (voiced by Jodie Foster!!!). Scooby and Shaggy are also at the top of their game with some very funny moments throughout and especially the ones dealing with them constantly fainting when things get too scary.
