A Terrifying Round With A Menacing Metallic Clown is the eighth episode of the third season of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, and the thirty-sixth episode overall in the series.


Shaggy competes in a mini-golf tournament that is terrorized by a giant metallic clown. In a surprising twist of events, Shaggy, driven by his desire to win the tournament, faces the monster boldly, and it is Velma, with a childhood trauma resurfaced, who ends up frightened by the monster of the day!


Ned and Stacy are playing late at Putt Putt Paradise; the latter wants to go home, but the former wants to finish his game. When Ned wins and he wants his free game, but when nothing happens he kicks the clown-themed golf course and in return it comes to life consuming the boy whole!

  • This episode's flashback to Mystery Inc.'s younger years is done as a homage to the predecessor series, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
  • In this episode Taylor Lautner guest stars as Ned (the Clown's first victim).
  • Because of Velma's clown "allergy" (phobia) and Shaggy's determination to golf, they effectively switch roles and personalities during this case; Shaggy is the smart, brave, and bold one, while Velma is the "scaredy cat".
  • Ned and Stacy could be a reference to the short-lived NBC sitcom, Ned and Stacy.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
