Nowhere to Hyde is the first episode of the second season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, and the eighteenth episode overall in the series.


On their way home from the malt shop, the gang encounter the "Ghost of Mr. Hyde", a known jewel thief, sneaking into a spooky house. The house turns out to be the home of Dr. Jekyll, who fears he may be transforming into the Ghost of Mr. Hyde. The gang begin searching the house for clues, pegging the maid as a likely suspect, but are pursued at every turn by the ghost.

Full credits

The following credits are how they are seen on-screen (or as close as possible).



Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When there are close-ups of Scooby and Shaggy at the malt shop, their spoons are missing.
  • After he enters the basement, Dr. Jekyll's shadow vanishes. Later, Mr. Hyde's does, too.
  • While watching Shaggy and Scooby slide down the bannister, Fred turns his head all the way around.
  • The mud on Jekyll's shoes wasn't there a moment before.
  • Shaggy runs right through the wall, leaving a Shaggy-shaped hole... complete with floating pieces of wood to delineate the negative space in the crook of Shaggy's arms.
  • The picture on the wall is just a solid blue. Modern art?
  • The muddy shoes that Scooby, Velma, and Shaggy find on the ironing board, aren't muddy.
  • Velma in the Hyde costume is considerably shorter than normal.
  • When Scooby was climbing the wall at the end of the episode, he had suction cups on all four of his paws and one on his tail, but when he was on the ceiling, his front paws had no suction cups on them with no time for him to take them off.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Dr. Jekyll doesn't just become Mr. Hyde, he becomes the ghost of Mr. Hyde. He makes the highly dubious claim that he's the ghost of his own great-grandfather's transformation. Possibly the most ridiculous story in the entire franchise.
    • It is unclear why no one makes (even awkward) references to the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as the work was originally published in 1886 and Stevenson died in 1894 which given the copyright laws at the time in the United States (date of publication + 28 years with a option for another 28 year renewal ie maximum year of 1942) and Great Britain (life of author + 50 years ie 1944) should have put the work in the public domain. In another instance, two Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde movies are referenced (and another even being filmed) in the The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode, Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hyde.
  • Fred says that they ended up in Dr. Jekyll's lab; technically they ended up down into his lab.
  • The gang must've seen the stolen necklace in Dr. Jekyll's hand, yet they don't bother to mention that the sheriff (or someone from the jewel department) should be called to collect it. Maybe they thought they were doing Dr. Jekyll a favour, as he surely would've been arrested, without hearing his unbelievable story the same way the inquistive, gullible kids would.
  • Dr. Jekyll managed to plant all of the clues extremely quickly and yet methodically; unless he was prepared beforehand that someone might follow him, which is not what the Gang believed, this is somewhat miraculous.
    • The fact that a trap door leads right into his lab, makes things more curious.
  • When Shaggy and Scooby claim that "Dr. Jekyll must have changed again," Velma claims this is impossible as she, Fred and Daphne just saw him reading in his study. At this point the audience is being led to believe Helga is the Ghost of Mr. Hyde; but after it transpires that Jekyll is indeed the ghost, it means that Jekyll must indeed have moved impossibly quickly.
  • It wasn't really explained why Dr. Jekyll was so intent on getting the suction cups back; certainly he had extras and with all the false clues he planted they could have been dismissed as an anomaly. (Although his determination to retrieve them was a big clue to their importance).
