Slippery Dan the Escape Man is the third part of the fifth episode of The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour.



Slippery Dan is an escape artist who the guys have to turn over to the warden at the state pen, but he soon escapes, and every time they recapture him, he escapes again.


Scrappy, Yabba and Dusty, are on their way to the Warden at the State den by train, to turn over the worlds sneakiest escape artist, Slippery Dan. However, when they passed a tunnel, Slippery Dan escaped, and put the lawmen in his chains. Fortunately, Yabba used Dusty's badge as a chainsaw, and freed them.

They went after Dan, via hot air balloon, and tried to net him. But he saw them, avoided the net, and the lawmen caught a truck instead. After landing, they decided to hop on the chopper, and track down Dan.

They followed Dan to a cabin, where the dogs plan to just walk in and arrest him, but Dusty refused to go in and get clobbered. So Yabba comes up with another idea.

They used wood from the trees, and chains to trap Dan inside, and begin to bring the whole cabin to prison using the chopper. But Slippery Dan switch the cabin with a giant boulder, which smashes the chopper. Dusty laments the loss of his chopper, but Yabba says he'll fix it, and they began to put it back together.

They followed Dan to the town's hotel, where they try to catch him, disguised as room service waiters. They tied him in a chair, but he switch places with Dusty. Scrappy gets an idea that will catch Dan for sure.

They brought a small house of mirrors with the repaired chopper, with a sign that says "International Border". Slippery Dan enters it, thinking he's escaped the law. But, he soon finds out that he's been tricked, and that they trapped him in the one place he could never escape from. And they won't let him out until they turn him in. Yabba says that someday outlaws will learn to never mess with him.
