Scooby Doo Special Guest Star Alice Cooper

Remember the Scooby Doo series that included such guest like Batman and Robin, Don Knotts, 
The Three Stooges and musical guest like Mama Cass, Jerry Reid, Sonny and Cher well this here 
was a rare episode that had Alice Cooper titled “School’s Out”.
I only seen this once.



It starts with the gang heading to an old school house that’s been reported to have 
strange happenings. Of course Shaggy and Scooby are dead set to go. Shaggy saying “Zoinks! 
I didn’t care for those strict teachers when I went to school let alone ghost” As the gang enters the old school they are met by the caretaker of the property Dwight Fry who tells the kids of ghostly figures and strange noises coming from the old school. 

As he leaves the gang starts to investigate followed by strange moans and creaks as eyes behind old portrait paintings follow them through out the old school as “Blue Turk” is the background music. Dennis Dunaway walks through different scenes wearing a frog mask just saying “ribbit ribbit” nothing else then disappears into the ether. Glen Buxton ends up coaxing Velma into making out in the back of the Mystery van. Neal Smith ties up and tortures Freddie then locks him in one of the school’s locker. In one of the classroom's Michael Bruce gets romantic with Daphine as he tells her he's in a long haired rock n' roll band. She asked why the singer's name is Alice which Mike replies 'Listen baby you really wouldn't understand." Meanwhile Shaggy and Scooby are getting high behind the old school house as Shaggy insist that Cocoa Pebbles is the same cereal as Cocoa Krispies only in a different mascot on the box.

Afterwards Shaggy and Scooby stumble upon Fred in the locker as they hear banging while they had the munchies and were searching for food. As they untie Fred he tells them what’s been going on.





During one of the chase scenes “Public Animal #9” is playing and finally when they catch the ghost who ends up to be “Alice Cooper!” they all shout as they pull off his mask. Alice’s reply to Officer Krupe who takes him away “I would of gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling kids”. 

After Alice is driven away by Officer Krupe, Scooby and the gang hop back into the Mystery van and drive off to the next mystery case. Switching  scenes back to Officer Krupe driving his prisoner to the police headquarters he sees a figure standing in the middle of the road. Alice is smiling from the back seat as Officer Krupe gets out of the patrol car and there’s a man wearing a frog mask just saying “ribbit ribbit” then the scene goes to black.

During this time Fred turns on the Mystery van stereo and "School's Out" is on the radio. Fred raises the volume up and says "I love this song even though Alice Cooper is one crazy motherf@*kin' band. As the Mystery van reaches the top of the hill a big explosion happens as pieces of the van liter the ground some still in flames. Scooby’s charred dog collar drops near the feet of a shadowy figure leaning against a tree near the old school house. It’s Glen Buxton picking his fingernails with a switchblade as he grins with a
lit cigarette hanging out the side of his mouth and say’s 
“School’s Out”.
