Scooby-Doo! - The Headless Horseman of Halloween TV review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday takes us back to a Halloween-themed episode of The Scooby-Doo Show that pits Mystery, Inc. against the Headless Horesman. While attending a Halloween party as the guest of the great-great granddaughter of Ichabod Crane, Scooby-Doo (Don Messick) encounters a Headless Horseman on horseback who is after Gertrude Crane‘s “cursed” diamond necklace. Other than using Washington Irving‘s famous character, the episode is also notable (but not in a good way) for the appearance of Scooby’s cousin Scooby-Dum (Daws Butler) who fancies himself something of a detective (despite being dumber than a post). In the usual manner, the gang is able to put together enough clues to uncover the truth behind the haunting and the sudden reappearance of the legendary monster. While not one of the better mysteries, the Headless Horseman (both before and after he takes a head) provides a memorable villain for the episode.

Scooby Doo! - What a Night for a Knight TV review

Today’s Throwback Thursday takes us back 50 years to the very first episode of Scooby Doo, Where Are You! “What a Night for a Knight” introduces us to Scooby-Doo (Don Messick) and Shaggy (Casey Kasem) coming home late from a movie when they stumble upon an abandoned truck with a the empty armor of a knight behind the wheel. After collecting Fred (Frank Welker), Velma (Nicole Jaffe), and Daphne (Stefanianna Christopherson), the gang return the armor to the museum where they learn about a missing archeologist, a legend about the knight coming to life during the full moon, and uncover a mystery that they seem determined to solve (even if that means breaking into the museum after hours in order to snoop around).

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #48

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #48 comic reviewMystery, Inc. heads to Central City to help investigate an appearance of the ghost of a super-villain who recently returned. However, Scooby-Doo and the gang weren’t called in by the Flash (who apparently is off-world with the Justice League) but instead by his most notorious foesThe Rogues.

There’s fun to be had by both Scooby-Doo! fans and those of the Flash as the most notable Rogues (all in their classic Silver/Bronze Age style) are on-hand to make an convincing argument to Mystery, Inc. to help them. Or else. Even those not directly involved in the story (such as Gorilla Grodd and the Reverse-Flash) still earn a mention.

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #45

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #45 comic reviewWhile entertaining, Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #45 doesn’t offer much for Mystery, Inc. to do. Opening with the gang attending a show featuring Mister Miracle showcasing the escape artist’s talents, the showman’s wife (along with Daphne and Velma) are captured by monsters from Apokolips forcing the rest of the gang to head after them (van and all).

It’s obvious both writer Sholly Fisch and artist Dario Brizuela are fans of Scott and Barda, and the story does allow for some fun moments featuring the characters, even if figuring a way to get Scooby and the others into their story feels a bit forced.
