The Old Cat and Mouse Game is the second part of the second episode of the Richie Rich / Scooby-Doo Show and originally aired on November 15, 1980.

This episode sees the gang encountering some sort of cat man while they are sight seeing in the Andes Mountains in South America.

I don’t have any trivia for this one, so let’s get on with my review.

The episode begins with the gang on a Lama as they trek through the mountain tops of the Andes. Coming to a dead end, they find a remote palace in a paradise like setting.

Inside the castle they find dozens of statues of cats, along with a real live Siamese cats.

They also meet an odd cat creature man who claims they are in a cat sanctuary, and aggressively meows at them.

Cat Man hssssss

The gang fall into a shrinking water pond and are turned into mice sized creatures for the Siamese cat to eat.

The Siamese Cat chases the gang up a tree where they drop apples on its head aggravating it even more.

We get lots of hijinks as the cat chases the gang around the palace. Building a paper airplane, the gang fly out and land on their lama who takes them out of there. And once they hit the cold weather, they return back to their normal size.

The cat man himself, accidentally falls into the shrinking pool and now has the misfortune of being chased by his cat.

My Review

fourI give this episode a 4 out of 10

I enjoyed the cat creature man. Silly yes, but oddly creepy. I’d rather be watching a 22 minute episode of Scooby-Doo, but this episode wasn’t terrible or boring. And I’m sure there’s someone out there who probably loves it.

Anyway, thanks for any likes, subscribes, views and shares as I continue reviewing Scrappy-Doo episodes during my summer hiatus from YouTube. It’s my goal to review every Scooby-Doo episode, and if you are not crazy enough to join my journey, I’ll be returning to reviewing the Classic Scooby-Doo episodes in September. I’m just doing these quick reviews to keep some content on YouTube while I take a break.

Join me next way when I will be covering Stow-Aways. Until then, Stay Spooky!
