Mr. Wickles unmasked.

Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo found a mysterious black knight belonging to a Professor Hyde White that was nowhere to be found. Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Shaggy and Scooby returned the black knight to the museum.

When there, they discovered that Hyde White had no longer left the Knight, but was missing, and the knight had come to life. Mystery Inc. managed to trap the Black Knight and revealed that it was Mr. Wickles, who was using the disguise to scare people away while he swapped the museum's paintings with forgeries and selling the real paintings for profit.[1]
