This is the first time Scooby agrees to be the bait without taking a Scooby Snack. This is because he was more afraid of driving with Velma than he was of the 'monster' of the day. See more »

Scooby Doo, Where Are You?

S1E8: Foul Play in Funland (1969)

Scooby and the gang are collecting some clams when they notice that the fun park seems to come to life on its own. They go to investigate and soon see an iron man running around the park causing trouble. This episode is without question one of the best that the series has ever offered. It really takes a great location and mixes in all sorts of fun with our favorite characters and then we're given one of the most memorable villains that they ever faced. I thought the fun park was a great location as we get some nice jokes dealing with cotton candy, hot dogs and of course trick mirrors. The setting was also extremely dark and just added to the nice atmosphere that is built up. The monster itself is an alien looking creature that has a touch of the Tin Man thrown in. The glowing eyes and strange walk that he has makes this villain one of the most memorable that the series has offered. There's no doubt that fans of the show are going to have plenty of things here working for their entertainment.
