The Ghost Clown was the disguise of Harry the Hypnotist.
The Ghost Clown has the appearance of a stereotype clown; a silly costume, and lots of make-up on his face. What separates him from a normal clown, is the evil grin on his face.
The Ghost Clown thought that he's in complete control. He liked to tell grim jokes; when for example Scooby-Doo was hanging in the air on a pair of balloons, the Ghost Clown said, "All what goes up, must come down". Usually such sentences are followed by an evil laugh. The Ghost Clown always tried to stay one step ahead of the gang.
Powers and abilities
The Ghost Clown had superb expertize in hypnotism, and with a gold coin hanging from a piece of string could gain complete control over several members of the gang, including Daphne Blake and Shaggy Rogers in dangerous acts and environments. The Ghost Clown seemed to be popping up all over the circus, and he had a lot of nasty objects (like dart arrows) in his pockets.
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!
The Ghost Clown hypnotized Scooby-Doo, Daphne and Shaggy, respectively, in to doing dangerous acts in Mr. Barnstorm's circus, causing mayhem. He went against the circus because he was sent to prison after he was caught stealing at the circus.
During this he got hypnotized himself into believing he was a chimpanzee by Shaggy and Scooby who used two mirrors to deflect his powers.
