Amber and I are big fans of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Although I was only a casual watcher when it came to all previous Scooby Doo shows, something about this one is just fun…and dark.

In the episode I just saw, entitled Art of Darkness, a crazy machine goes around turning people into golden statues. First it grabs the lead singer of a band, and later on in the full episode it grabs another young woman. Funny thing is, you learn at the end that these women were actually paralyzed and painted gold throughout the episode.

[EDIT: Since the video seems to play automatically I added a Read More link so people visiting the home page wouldn’t get the audio every time they visit. Just click that to get to the video.]

While the full episode itself does not show any transformation process, there’s lots of shots of the stiffened ladies being moved around on gurneys and being set up in a storage closet…until they are later cured. Enjoy the clip below of the first victim being taken at 1:20.
