Show #107: The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo


That most blessed of holidays is upon us and we get into the Halloween spirit with a most horrifying chapter of a long running franchise, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo!


For our first foray into the venerable annals of Scooby Doo we picked a more obscure offering that sounds great on paper; beloved actor Vincent Price is a wizard helping the gang capture some runaway revenants. However the transition to actual ghostbusting does not fit so well for the mystery solving teens, already hamstrung by a roster of repulsive replacements dealing out gags that were stale a decade before the show came out and essentially doing away with most of what makes Scooby Doo work in the first place. Vincent Price deserved a better class of cartoon than this, a terrifying apparition that will curse one with nightmares on these late October evenings!

Rugby World Cup fever strikes SOTSM but we're hard pressed for appropriate rugby cartoons, leading our gaze to fall upon this 1988 anime OAV which is dang hard to find due to its naming. A strange mixture of underdog sports story and puerile delinquent school comedy, Madonna stands out even further by often breaking with the conventions of both and focusing on a sport with sparse coverage in the animated medium. But who knows, with recent real world success by the Japanese rugby team the next anime craze mightn't be far away!
