In this edition of Saturday Morning Cartoon, we explore a particularly weird subset of the long-running Scooby-Doo franchise known as The New Scooby-Doo Movies—hour long episodes which debuted in 1972, and would co-star "very special guest stars" every week. Guests would famously include Don Knotts, the Harlem Globetrotters, Batman and Robin, and... Sandy Duncan? Sure, why not? Anyway, what follows is part one of possibly the most offensive episode of the series called "Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Candy Factory" with special guest star Mama Cass Elliot formerly of The Mamas & the Papas who is famous for this song and for allegedly choking to death on a ham sandwich (a rumor which was later debunked, and thankfully is not featured in this episode).
Unsurprisingly, in this episode, Mama Cass owns a candy factory (because she's FAT) that's haunted by walking/flying mucus monsters. How many times can the Scooby gang mention Mama Cass' name, and make jokes about her being FAT? You may be surprised by the answer in part one of "Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Candy Factory."
