Scooby Doo

Scooby doo the grasp of the gnome

Season one episode 8.

The Scooby gang visit a local renaissance ‘Royal Knight’s fair’. For some reason many of the spectators (including Scooby and shaggy) are dressed as pirates rather than knights. Needless to say, within seconds the gang stumbles across a mystery. A scary gnome is attacking the pirates and anyone the gnome touches becomes paralysed. Velma gets a book on gnomes from her mother from which she learns that gnomes like gems, possess weak magic and whilst some gnomes are good and helpful to animals others are evil and rumoured to work as managers in the shady world of fairy wrestling. Daphne finds a gem earring on one of the paralysed pirates. Another clue is a goo made out of jellyfish that causes paralysis.  Shaggy is captured by the scary gnome. Daphne discovers a trap door in a tree which leads to a series of wooden walkways way above the forest. They dig a trap for the gnome using pirate Scooby as bait. The gnome attacks and they give chase, finally capturing him. Fred unmasks the scary gnome revealing him to be the court fool and husband of the queen whose evil plan was to frame the queen (a well known pirate hater) for the pirate attacks and keep her fortune for his own.  He would have got away with it as well had it not been for those meddling kids.
