Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed[]

Ghost of Captain Cutler

His first movie appearance was in the 2004 live-action movie Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed where he was one of the supporting antagonists. He was seen at the museum as a banner and later inside a costume. Much later in the film, He was brought to life in the monster hive by Shaggy Rogers and Scooby when they were doing dumb things to the control panel, along the Zombie, The Miner 49er and the Tar Monster. After Scooby, Shaggy and the gang escaped the monsters and went down to their old high school clubhouse, they didn't know that The Ghost of Captain Cutler was in the water. While Fred Jones, Velma Dinkley and Daphne Blake were working on the control panel so they will turn the monsters back into lifeless costumes, Shaggy and Scooby were outside near the Mystery Machine when Shaggy and Scooby walked over near the water when Shaggy said "We can be heroes and save the day" and then said "You know what we can do right" and picks up a rock from the ground and skips it across the water until it hit something metal underneath the water. Then bubbling sounds and a glow began to rise out of the water Shaggy stared in horror as they saw The Ghost of Captain Cutler rise from the water and he said "Captain Cutler's Ghost" and the ghost made a moaning sound then Shaggy yelled "Captain Cutler's Ghost" when Fred said "they found us we got to get this thing back to the Monster Hive" and which the gang headed for the Mystery Machine and the ghost made a loud moaning sound as he climbed out of the water and took out his spear gun and fired it at the Mystery Machine and then started pulling it backwards. The gang asked what they were going do, then Fred said "Fine let's go back" and then backed up the Mystery Machine and slammed into Cutler's body so it flew back into the water and made a loud splash sound. Captain Cutler was turned back into a costume when Scooby-Doo reconnected the control panel in the Monster Hive. The news people found his head asked Shaggy if they could take his picture in it. Scooby whacked Shag on the head, thinking cutler had returned and stopped when he realized it was only his best pal. Here he was simply refereed to as Captain Cutler's Ghost.
