Those Scooby Snacks you've been saving since 1985 might be a bit stale by now, but the 33-year-old mystery left unsolved from the classic, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Saturday morning animated series is still ripe for discovery.

Warner Bros. Animation just dropped a fresh trailer for Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost, a feature-length, direct-to-video 'toon that revisits the supernatural shenanigans of Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and the goofball Great Dane, Scooby.

This new animated sequel picks up where the cancelled '80s show ended, with Scooby and his swingin' ghost-hunting pack searching for a way to return the final spook to the legendary Chest of Demons. Originally airing as a 13-episode series beginning in September of 1985, the program ran for only one season on ABC and was cancelled in December of 1985 without wrapping up its plotline or revealing the identity of the final phantom.

To fix this pop culture sleight, Warner Home Video will release the Warner Bros. Animation-produced Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost on February 5, 2019, which also showcases the return of the warlock Vincent VanGhoul (first voiced by Vincent Price) and an older Flim-Flam, a pair of characters introduced in the 1985 series.

Here, the entire Mystery Inc. team comes out of retirement and returns to the Himalayan mountains to clash with the 13th Ghost and send it back to the Chest of Demons along with the dozen other angry spooks already rounded up.

It stars the vocal talents of Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers, Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley and Maurice LaMarche as Vincent VanGhoul in a great imitation of the late Vincent Price.

So gas up the Mystery Machine and blast into this new trailer above, showcasing the whole Scooby-Doo crew hunting down the final spook in Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost, then tell us if you think it might be the notorious Old Man Smithers!
