Scooby and the Bandit is the third part of the thirteenth episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.
The guys are eating at a local truck stop cafe, when Scooby accidentally squirts ketchup on Bandit, a local thug. The guys then take off, but soon discover they hopped into Bandit's Master Mover van, an exact replica of the Mystery Machine.
Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are eating at a truck stop cafe. When a sexy waitress flatters Scooby, he squirts a ketchup bottle so hard, the ketchup lands on nearby Bandit's ice cream. Bandit's sidekick Wilbur warns him about what happened to the last guy who did that—he turned him into a pretzel—which Bandit now proceeds to do to Scooby. Scrappy splats him with the ice cream, and they drive off.
Upon getting unstuck from mud, they notice from the license plate, that they have been driving not the Mystery Machine, but rather Bandit's nearly identical Master Movers van (which had been parked next to it). Bandit shows up in Wilbur's rig, and upon the cue [why didn't you] "say so", Scooby floors it, covering Bandit in mud.
Scrappy takes a boat, with Scooby and Shaggy "skiing" on the pier plank it was still tied to. Propelled through the air, they land in Bandit's food. They next take off in a hand car. After tricking Bandit with the phony-then-real train-in-tunnel gag, Bandit chases them in a locomotive. Inside the tunnel, Scrappy calls "puppy power", and a crash is heard. Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are now running the locomotive, with Bandit and Wilbur stuck in the smokestack.
