South Seas Scare is the first part of the eighth episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


The guys are vacationing in Hawaii when a volcano erupts hot lava and a lava monster, who chases them all over the island.


Hawaiian natives are singing and hula dancing, when a volcano erupts, and out comes a lava monster whom the natives fear their singing has disturbed, and they all run. Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are also on the island singing and hula dancing, and see the people running, and soon encounter the lava monster themselves.

Scrappy challenges it, but Shaggy and Scooby grab him and run and hide in a restaurant, disguised as waiters. They serve him a dish, inside of which is Scrappy, who squirts him with water. They trick him into washing dishes, and Scrappy splashes him with more water. He throws food at them, and hiding behind a table, Shaggy and Scooby grab it out of the air to eat. Scrappy covers his eyes as he chases them, and he falls into the ocean, but soon returns.

The gang disguises as hula dancers, and then run, Shaggy wishing he would go back to where he came from. Scrappy asks "well, why didn't you say so?", and simply picks up the monster and carries it back to the mouth of the volcano and dumps it back in (and without even calling 'puppy power')! Shaggy and Scooby faint.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The Lava Monster must have some legend behind it as Shaggy immediately refers to it as that upon his first encounter with it. Although given its appearance, perhaps it was just easier to write it that way.
