Scooby-Doo! - That's Snow Ghost television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. A trip to the nearly abandoned Wolf’s End Lodge ski resort almost immediately becomes a case for Mystery, Inc. when they discover the existence of a Snow Ghost haunting the area. The Tibetan hermit Fu Lan Chi tells the gang the history of the creature. It’s an odd sequence, both because the find the man living in a cave in the wilderness and because at the end of the episode he isn’t involved at all in the current hauntings making him a rare red herring for the series.

The Snow Ghost is much more vicious than some of the creatures encountered by the gang over the course of the series as it looks to do Mystery, Inc. real harm, including chaining Velma (Nicole Jaffe) to a saw and using dynamite to try and blow them up, rather than just scaring them off. Further investigation turns up a diamond smuggling operation which was being hidden by the public appearances of the Snow Ghost. The episode is notable for putting the characters in winter clothing rather than usual clothes and is also the final episode of Stefanianna Christopherson voicing Daphne.
