A Code in the Nose

Doom Service is the first half of the fifth episode of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries. It was followed by A Code in the Nose.


The kids are summoned to the Overview Hotel by Jack Marsten, the owner, to rid it of the previous owner, who died 100 years before. It seems that some of the guest are not frightened though, like Sheldon Keats, the horror novelist and occultist, and Mrs. Van Loon and her invisible dog. Does it have anything to do with the Western Air Command Base down the street?
