Dog Tag Scooby is the first part of the eleventh episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


While visiting an army base, the guys take a short cut through the registration office, and are mistaken for new recruits by a very angry drill sergeant.


Visiting an Army training base, Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy try to avoid long mess hall lines by taking a shortcut, from which they come out in uniform, and assumed to be new recruits by a tough drill sergeant. He calls the "dogfaces", and then, barking commands, straightens Scooby into a lean, muscular soldier, and orders them to the obstacle course.

Shaggy and Scooby do poorly, but Scrappy, shouting commands from under the sergeant's helmet, tricks him into a workout, and then "fixes" the course by sawing a climbing wall making it a bridge over the mud puddle; tying climbing ropes together, and tossing the tires out of the way "so no one will trip".

The sergeant, trapped in the tires, frees himself and begins chasing them in a tank. They disguise as service station attendants and spill oil on his head, and over-inflate the tires, causing the tank to explode.

He next chases them into the base hospital. Shaggy disguises as a nurse, and Scooby as a bandaged patient. The sergeant asks if they've seen "three ugly dogfaces", and a hidden Scrappy challenges: "Who are you calling 'ugly', buster?", which Shaggy repeats as "The hallway needs a-dustin'". This fools him, but then Scrappy wraps his head with bandages.

They run aboard an army plane, and the sergeant shows up, and now aims to give them parachuting lessons. Airborne, they grab onto him, tearing off his pants. When they land, the general tells him he's out of uniform and delivers him his real recruits (a trio of country bumpkins). Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are released, but Scrappy now wants to see the Navy next.
