El Chupacabra was the disguise of the museum guide, who in reality, was actually Charlene. She used this and the museum guide disguise to help get the Oteros' land for her boyfriend's newest tourist attraction.

Physical appearance

It resembled a huge gorilla beast with purple fur, glowing green eyes, an upright posture, and sharp fangs. It had large claws on its hands, that it often used to abduct people. The museum guide wore stilts to cover the huge size.


It's very hostile and intends to frighten people away from their homes.

Chupacabra (museum guide) unzipped

Museum guide unzipped out of disguise.

It first appeared at the plaza, where it nearly captured Alejo Otero's son and his dog, but they were saved by Alejo himself. It later spooked Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo when they were trying to sleep, but it was scared away when more people came.

The gang finally met it in the forest, where it chased them, and they managed to lose it. It last appeared in the graveyard, at the Day of the Dead, where it was unmasked as the museum guide, then Charlene.



  • In the trailer, Shaggy asked what "Chupacabra" means in English, but wasn't revealed in the movie. The word means "goat sucker" (it not only kills sheep and goats, but also chickens).
  • Instead of using a real life reptilian version of the Chupacabra, they made its version like Bigfoot.
  • During the film, most children say it looks like a gorilla, bear, or alien (although, in real life, it is said that the Chupacabra looks like an alien).
  • It's possible that Mr. Smiley briefly dressed up as the monster to fake kidnap his girlfriend Charlene.
  • The Chupacabra's roars were originally recorded for the title character of Hanna-Barbera's 1978-1979 Godzilla series, as performed by Ted Cassidy.
