Barney unmasked.

Scooby-Doo and the gang were on a plane trip when a malfunction forced the pilots to make an emergency landing in the Brazilian jungle. The statue of the Jaguaro came to life and chased Shaggy Rogers and Scooby. After a chase, the Jaguaro fell over a waterfall. His costume came off and the Jaguaro was trapped. The Jaguaro was then revealed to be Barney who was using the plane to smuggle out the diamonds.[1]
