Scooby's Trip to Ahz is the third part of the eleventh episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


Shaggy and Scrappy are watching The Wizard of Oz in the Mystery Machine and call in Scooby to join them, but he trips and hits his head. When he wakes up, he is in Oz as the Lion, Shaggy the Scarecrow, and Scrappy as the Tin Woodsman.


Shaggy and Scrappy are watching The Wizard of Oz on TV in the Mystery Machine, and call Scooby who is outside. Scooby runs and trips, knocking himself out. He wakes up, and a tornado comes and whisks him, the Mystery Machine, with Scrappy still inside watching TV, and even a nearby farmer and his cow, away into the sky.

They land, in the Land of Ahz, looking like Oz characters: Shaggy is the scarecrow, Scooby is the lion, and Scrappy is the tin man. They are greeted by the Yellow Brick Toad, (who talks like Jimmy Durante), who tells them the yellow brick road was torn up for a shopping center. He leads them off to the wizard, as they sing "Follow the yellow brick toad" ("What a bunch of bananas!")

The Wicked Witch of the North by Southeast is watching them on her crystal ball. they hear her laugh, and the toad 'splits', running into a tree. The witch puts the gang in a trance which sends them floating (and Scrappy, who was ready to attack, picks her flowers), and then puts them to sleep.

The witch's winged monkey brings them to her castle. Scooby wakes up, and he and Shaggy run, grabbing Scrappy who wants to attack. They are cornered, and Scrappy, who has "seen the movie three times," splashes her with water, melting her.

The wizard appears and congratulates them, and then takes them off in his balloon (which runs on "Ahzium gas"). He says it only holds three, and when Scooby counts himself as the fourth, he falls out. The wizard is unable to do anything to save him. While falling, he wakes up back in the real world in the field he had tripped in. Only, he still has the lion's tail, which hits him in the face.
