“Perennial presidential candidate and TV dad” Mitt Romney and his five sons were the subject of a new “Election eve special” animated short released by Funny or Die on Sunday.

The GOP presidential nominee, voiced by Fred Willard, was a guest star in the “Romney Boys Mysteries,” which recast the younger Romneys as characters from the animated series “Scooby-Doo,” as they saved the day for Republican National Convention speaker Clint Eastwood, and Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), as the abrasive “Paulie-Doo.”

“I have the experience in the public investigation sector to put these ghoulish ghosties to bed for good,” Romney said, allaying his sons’ concerns about medusas and zombies. “With tax cuts and … smaller government — whatever you call it!”

Watch the video, posted Sunday at Funny Or Die, below.
