Fun Fact of the Week #404
The Chupacabra's roars from Scooby-Doo and the Monster of Mexico are archived recordings of Godzilla from the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla cartoon. Interestingly, Godzilla was voiced in that series by Ted Cassidy, who voiced Lurch in The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode "Wednesday Is Missing."

I could've also sworn that the dragon in Scoobra Kadoobra from 13 ghosts was just recycled noises of the gator ghoul random comment but still

I think you might be right. I know Hanna-Barbera recycled quite a bit of sound effects over the years, like the ghost in "Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hydes" is just a combination of recycled noises from the Mummy of Ankha and the Creeper. I just thought this one was particularly interesting since it was recycled from another show, but the voice actor it was recycled from had a different role as a guest star in Scooby.

I thought The Addams Family was the perfect crossover too! The creepy tone of both shows worked perfectly together. I find it interesting that John Astin and Carolyn Jones agreed to come back for this crossover, but they didn't want to come back for the cartoon series a year later.

I enjoyed this film too! I would say I liked Legend of the Vampire a little better, but this is still great. I also liked how reminiscent this was of Where Are You, and it was cool they got the old voice actors back! The reference to Legend of the Vampire was fun.
