Posted under Episode 3, Story On By Chief

You are Fred from the Scooby Doo Mystery Team. You are driving the gang to the location of the newest mystery. This adventure will not include any references to the use of marijuana.
 The Scooby Doo Mystery Team is a volunteer organization that solves mysteries for fun and profit.  You must solve the mystery before you can claim your share of the profits!  Your mission today: Find the missing cat in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Paris!

> You visit the mansion and look for clues.

The room is full of dark shadows. There is a small door to the east, but it's locked. There is an exit to the west, but it too is locked. In the center of the room there is a large portrait of Michael Jackson.

> You break the door the west door because you smell Scooby snacks!

The door opens with a loud bang. A ghostly apparition appears from the darkness behind the painting. It looks like a human child wearing a black cape and a white mask. Its voice sounds familiar...
 "I'm afraid I have no time to chat..." The figure then vanishes into the darkness.
"Who was that?" You ask yourself.
You hear another sound coming from behind the door.

> You turn around and see
Nothing is visible on the other side of the door. You walk over and try the knob.
It turns easily. You open the door.
The room is empty. You look down at the floor.

> You find cat hair all over the place.

There is some kind of powdery substance everywhere. You pick up one of the pieces and examine it closely. It looks like a piece of pepperoni pizza.
A few moments later you spot something moving in the corner of your eye.
 You turn quickly and see a large gray tabby cat sitting calmly by the window.
"Oh, thank goodness," you say. "Where did you come from?"
The cat gives you a curious glance and slowly saunters away.

> You look at a photo of the missing cat and see that it matches the description.  You follow the cat into the ballroom.

The ballroom is very beautiful. There are several chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The walls are covered with murals depicting scenes from Alice in Wonderland. An ornate marble staircase leads up to a balcony above.

> You see the shadowy figure from earlier holding the tabby cat.  The light flicks and you finally see that it is none other than
 Madame Leota herself. She holds the cat high above her head as if she were preparing to eat it.
Madame Leota then tosses the cat out the window.
You watch as the cat falls through the air, its body twisting and turning, until it lands on the grass below.

> You ask "Madame Leota, but why would you kidnap an innocent tabby cat?"

"That's what I want to know!" You exclaim. "Why would you do such a thing?"
"I have my reasons."
"But how could you possibly think that we would believe that you had kidnapped a cat?
 That's ridiculous!"
"Perhaps, but you should listen anyway. I am here to warn you about the dangers of meddling with our affairs."
"What does that mean?" You ask.
"You will learn soon enough.

The floor opens up and you fall into the Haunted Mansion basement.

The room is filled with cobwebs and dust. A large pile of old bones lies on the ground nearby. A trapdoor opens up beneath you.
"Oh no, I've fallen into the graveyard again," you moan.

> You see Shaggy get out of the trap door with an enormous 3 feet tall sandwich.

Shaggy walks over to you and hands you a huge sandwich.
"Here ya go, Scoob! Eat up!"
"Thanks," you say, taking a bite. "This is delicious!"

> You ask "Shaggy, how long have you been down here?"

"A while now. Why?"
"Did you happen to notice anything unusual when you came down here?"
"Well, there's this weird guy who keeps following me around. He's kind of creepy."

> You turn around and see the weird guy that has been following Shaggy:
 it is none other than Madam Leota herself!
"I thought so," you sigh. "She's still after us."
"Yeah, but I'm not afraid of her anymore.
> You think her face might be a mask, so you attempt to take Madam Leota's face off.

It doesn't work.
You try harder, but the mask remains firmly in place.
"No, it won't budge," you groan.
You try to rip the mask off, but it's stuck fast.

Shaggy gives it a try and finally rips her face off revealing that Madame Leota is none other than Michael Jackson himself!

"Yes, I knew it was him all along!" You shout triumphantly.
"Now let's get out of here!"
"Wait a minute! We don't know where we're going yet."

> You ask "Michael, how do we get out of here?"

"Just follow me."
"I can't see anything."
"Trust me, just follow my footsteps."
You follow his footsteps. After a few minutes you see daylight ahead.
The sun is shining brightly outside.

> You ask "
So, where are we?"
"We're at Disneyland."
"Yes. I made it all for you."
"How did you manage to get into the theme park?"

"I used to be a mouse myself. I snuck in once and sneaked around for years before they caught me."
"So you're telling me that you're actually Michael Jackson?"

"Of course. Don't you remember the rumors that he died?"
"Well, yes, I guess I do..."
"He's back and he's got a plan to save the world."

> You listen to Michael's plan to save the world:

"First, I'll need some help. Someone who knows about magic. And someone who can draw really well."
"I know just the person," you say.
"And then I'll need to build a big boat and sail across the ocean.

"But first, I must find a place to hide."
"I know just the place. It's right here at Disneyland!"
"Are you sure it's safe?"
"There's nothing to worry about.

Michael's plan was to create a new Disney cartoon about a magical mouse.  The show would be called "*
Mousey Mouse*", and it would star your favorite characters.
The studio was set up and ready to begin filming when Michael's girlfriend accused him of having an affair with a female mouse.
After much investigation, the police discovered that Michael had indeed been meeting with a female mouse named Mariah.

> You ask "And why did you need a big boat?"

"To cross the sea to Madagascar, of course."
"You mean to tell me that you actually wanted to go to Madagascar?"
"Of course. It's the perfect place for mice to live!"

> You look at Shaggy and you know there is no way you can let Michael get to Madagascar.

"Okay, Michael, I'll help you out. But you have to promise to leave Madagascar alone.
"Don't worry, I'm not interested in stealing any treasure. Just forget about the whole thing."
