Scooby Dooby Guru is the second part of the thirteenth episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.
While visiting the Taj Mahal, the guys disturb a guard, and break a statue, and now the guards wants them gone before they ruin anything else, but the guys soon discover the long Lost Ruins of the Rajas.
Visiting the Taj Mahal, Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy look at the various statues. One, which Scooby laughs at, is actually the palace guard, who now begins chasing them. The guard is further angered when he drops a statue, and Scooby assembles its arms wrong. Scrappy then pounces on his head, and unravels his turban, spinning him like a top.
They disguise themselves, and just as Scrappy is about to begin speaking, Shaggy covers his mouth, saying that this time, he was not going to reveal where they were. But Scrappy points out that he doesn't have to; the guard sees them, and is heading their way. They run.
Next, he comes after them with an elephant, sucking Scooby into his trunk. Scrappy sprinkles pepper on him, causing him to sneeze, smashing both the guru and Scooby into walls. Scooby's snout is stretched out like an accordion style camera lens (he "winds" it back up with his ears). To retaliate for this, Scrappy pulls the elephant's trunk, sending him smashing the guru into the wall again.
They run into the jungle and the cave of a tiger. Scrappy says "Hold that tiger"; Scooby grabs on riding it, and bumps his head. Dazed, he goes into a song and dance routine of the jingle "Hold that Tiger" (to the tune of "Stop that Pigeon"). The gang is ready to surrender, but now the guard is now friendly because they have led him to the lost ruins of the Rajas.
