Canine to Five is the third part of the fifth episode of the second season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


The guys have jobs as typists for Werner Wolf, a newspaper science editor, who is working on an experiment when he is accidentally transformed into a real wolf.


The gang arrives at the science building, and get a job working for newspaper science editor Werner Wolf. While typing, Scooby gets wrapped up in typewriter ribbon and comes out all covered with typed letters.

In another room, we see Wolf working on a scientific device he has invented, and if the experiment works, his studies on stone age men will be complete. He steps between the electrodes and is turned into a wolfman. Scooby sees him and is scared, but he keeps turning back into himself. He asks for coffee, and when they bring it to him, he has turned into the wolfman again.

They chase through a series of doors. Shaggy and Scooby disguise as janitors. Scooby's face gets caught in a pail, and the wolf removes it. Scooby wanders into a duplicating machine and is copied -- when the monster appears, the copy balls itself up and throws itself into the garbage pail.

Scooby lures the wolf into running through a wall. Next, they all play the file drawer game. Shaggy and Scooby grab the monster, thinking it was Scrappy.

Meanwhile, Scrappy himself, standing between the electrodes actually does get changed into a wolf. He picks up the wolfman and throws him between the electrodes where he is changed back to normal. Shaggy and Scooby have gotten outside, and try to remove Scrappy's 'disguise", when they realize that it's real, and take off running. Scrappy turns back to normal and runs after them, none the wiser.
