Scooby-Doo! - Haunted House Hang-Up television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. Low on gas and lost while trying to get to a rock festival, Mystery, Inc. takes a short-cut and winds up investigating a haunted mansion. Although the Headless Specter is a rather simple design, the character is put to good use in one of the creepier episodes of the series. We’re given the bizarre sequence of Scooby (Don Messick), Shaggy (Casey Kasem), and the Headless Specter all flying overhead on balloons leading to the ghost’s unmasking as Penrod Stillwall but this proves not to conclude the episode. Penrod is the rightful owner of the hidden treasure and, even if it’s really weird, has the right to scare off treasure hunters. In an late twist, however, the episode reveals identity of a true villain, and source of the sounds heard throughout the episode, attempting to steal the hidden treasure.
