The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo was the seventh incarnation of Scooby-Doo produced by Hanna-Barbera for ABC that premiered on September 7, 1985. Unlike previous Scooby-Doo series, its villains were real demons, as opposed to disguised humans.

Shaggy and Daphne were given drastic makeovers for this series. Shaggy is now seen wearing a red T-shirt and blue pants, while Daphne no longer wears her traditional purple dress, but now wears a lavender-colored jumpsuit. Daphne also sports a new hairstyle, which bears some resemblence to Debbie from Speed Buggy. It could be implied that Daphne and Shaggy were in their 20s in this series.

This series was dropped from ABC's Saturday morning lineup in March 1986 after just two cycles, and replaced by reruns of Laff-a-Lympics as a placeholder for the remainder of the 1985-86 TV season. At the same time, Scooby's Mystery Funhouse was dropped and replaced by reruns of Pink Panther and Sons, which previously aired on NBC.

This was the last new Scooby-Doo series to be produced until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo three years later, and the last new series of the franchise to feature regular human characters as teenagers until What's New, Scooby-Doo? launched in 2002, at which point their traditional wardrobes and appearance was restored.

Scooby-Doo and Vincent Van Ghoul.

After Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Rogers are tricked into opening the Chest of Demons and freeing the 13 evil spirits trapped therein, they must recapture the demons. Helping them are Daphne Blake, Scrappy-Doo and two new characters: Flim Flam, an orphaned huckster who befriends Scrappy, and Vincent Van Ghoul, an aged and wise mystic.

Each episode had the heroes trying to lure a different demon back into the chest. Helping the demon of the week are two inept ghosts, Bogol and Weird, who tricked our heroes into opening the chest in the first place.
