The Backstreet Boys

 The Backstreet Boys pose for the paparazzi before…

…jumping into the Mystery Machine and hurrying off to solve another mystery!

Tonight's episode: Haunted House Hassle!

When the Mystery Machine breaks down in front of a spooky old mansion, Nick, AJ, Kevin, Howie and Brian go inside and encounter a frightening ghost.  But further investigation reveals that all is not as it seems.  The ghost is really the old caretaker, who's really the abominable snowman, who's really a crooked real estate developer, who's really a witch doctor, who's really a slightly less crooked real estate developer who engages in business practices which, while not strictly illegal, are unethical and violate his professional code of conduct.  When the villain kidnaps the Backstreet Boys, can their trusty dog Dooby-Scoo save the day?

(I guess there should be a dog photo.  Let me check my files.)

Fine, sure, that'll do.  That's Dooby-Scoo.  Go get 'em, Dooby-Scoo!

  1. Must admit, I've never watched Scooby-Doo or Dooby-Scoo. OK, I'm old, but I do know earlier vintage Hanna-Barbera[Yogi & Boo-Boo, Quick Draw McGraw, SnagglePuss, Huckleberry Hound, Augie Doggie & Doggie Daddy, etc. -- perhaps they're not all from H-B, but as I said, I'm old]. Anyway, another cute entry. Happy Fourth to you, and all!

    1. Thanks, Jan! Let's declare our independence from non-gum-themed entertainment!

  2. Careful, the dog might think the gum is a Dooby snack!
