Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner

The Frickert Fracas is the fourth episode of the first season of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.


When the gang volunteers to drive Jonathan Winters to his friend Maude Frickert's house they run into a scarecrow that's alive, and people trying to steal a secret formula that makes a giant chicken.


After running stopping at a gas station, the gang discovers that Jonathan Winters needs a ride to Maude Frickert’s Farm. When they arrive at the farm, the gang and Mr. Winters find a large man chasing two men off of the farm. While trying to enter Maude's house, Mr. Winters and the gang get stopped by the large man who reveals that his name is Vernon Crow. Vernon thinks their trespassers. After Vernon says they won't get the secret formula, Mr. Winters tells Vernon that Mrs. Frickert is in the barn and she'll tell him who they are. Vernon walks up to the barn, and Mr. Winters does Mrs. Frickert's voice and makes Vernon let them in.

When they enter the house, the gang and Mr. Winters discover that the "secret formula" is a chicken feed that makes chickens giant.
