Culprit Motive/reason
Masked Marvel as the Ghostly strongman To scare off Dick and buy his carnival cheap.



  • This is both the season two finale and series finale of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
  • The Masked Marvel's disguise doesn't have a name.
  • Dick Van Dyke, along with Batman and Robin, Jeannie, Jerry Reed and Don Adams, showed little to no fear of the "haunting", in contrast to Shaggy and Scooby's cowardly personalities. It's understandable that Batman and Robin, being superheroes would not be afraid of "bad guys in masks" and Jeannie's supernatural powers are more than a match for any human (hence probably why the villain in that episode was a supernatural one that could pose a challenge).

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Mr. Van Dyke did his juggling, there were voice mistakes: Daphne said, "Great." but the voice was Velma's, Velma said, "Terrific." but the voice was Daphne's, and Daphne said, "Fantastic...", but the voice was Velma's
  • Mr. Van Dyke got ice cream on his head, but the next scene he appeared, the ice cream was gone, with no time for him to clean up.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The strongman got ice cream all over himself because he crashed into the ice cream wagon, but Shaggy and Scooby ate up all the ice cream earlier, and there's no way Mr. Van Dyke had the chance to refill it.
  • At the beginning Fred says "hey kids!" instead of "hey gang!"
