Synopsis
Scooby finds a cave and falls in a hole where an archaeologist named Brad is searching for the Anthro-stone. Scooby, digging to see what he hit his head on, discovers the artifact. With the gang in tow Brad takes the tablet to Leo Mandrell, who he hopes will translate the stone. Mr. Shuster, a competitor, arrives and offers Brad three thousand dollars for the stone, but he refuses. The next morning the gang arrives at Mandrell's office only to find it locked. Fred breaks down the door; Mandrell has apparently been turned into a chimpanzee and the Gorilla Spirit threatens Shaggy.
