Safari, So Goodi! is the eighth episode of the first season of What's New, Scooby-Doo?.


When the gang goes on safari, they encounter a variety of freaky, yellow-glowing demon animals.


In the middle of the night, campers sleeping in the safari are awakened by an unearthly sound. Coming out from their tents they are confronted by animals who have become demons. They are chased away from the site and are forced to head into the river.

The gang are taken to the safari on a coach and meet a very close couple, Henry and Honey Hunsecker. They claim that this is the third time they've visited the safari. On arrival, the gang and the couple are taken on a boat ride down the dangerous river with Cap'n Robbie along with another visitor Lloyd Mbuku. Through his binoculars, Fred spots an animal with an eerie yellow glow over its body. Suddenly, up ahead they realize that they are heading towards a deadly waterfall and the Captain is unable to control the boat. They crash down to the bottom of the river.

The gang awake on one side of the river and come across the rest of the visitors and the Captain, who seem to be fine. They continue down the river on foot and meet two animals, a giraffe and a gorilla. They are suprised by how small the number of animals there are. They decide to camp, but in the night, they are attacked by the glowing animal terrors.

After a scary attack, the group realize that two of them are missing, Scooby and Jacko (Mbuku's monkey). While they search, Daphne and Velma talk with Mbuku about Daphne finding a police badge inside his wallet. Mbuku confesses that he is an undercover policeman and not a t-shirt salesman. Mbuku's monkey suddenly shows up, but has changed, he is now vicious. But Velma cures this by giving the monkey some music to listen to. The gang realize that the yellow glow is fake.

The group come across a seemingly abandoned ship moored on their side of the river. They investigate the ship and find the missing animals (including Scooby) in cages and free them. Daphne accuses Henry and Honey for the crime of poaching and the couple run away, but the animals catch up to them and block their escape. Daphne came across this idea because she realized that the couple would never have a honeymoon in the safari.

The animals perform for Fred's safari documentary as the gang prepare to leave. Daphne asks Scooby-Doo what they're saying, but his only repsonse is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!".
