The gathering gloom

Scooby and Velma confront the Ghoul

A Graveyard Ghoul attacks in the middle of Mayor Nettles' Horror Movie Night, forcing the gang to investigate. However, Fred and Shaggy are smitten with three beautiful girls who have just immigrated into Crystal Cove, and Daphne has eaten some of their mother's homemade chocolate and become addicted, leaving Velma and Scooby alone to solve the mystery. Eventually, they are forced to turn to Sheriff Stone for help. Meanwhile, Mr. E teams back up with Professor Pericles in search of what he calls "the Treasure".

  • This episode was aired in Latin America and Brazil on October 15, 2012.
  • This is the first episode to have the "previously on..." recap spoken by Scooby. The recap itself is a spoof and doesn't actually show anything significant, only showing the extravagant meals Scooby and Shaggy have had.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Velma is nowhere to be seen in the Mayor's horror movie night at the cemetery, but she's capable of finding similarities between Count Evallo and the Graveyard Ghoul.
  • Pericles' scar is always on his right eye when his reflection on the glass is seen. It should be on the left, since in reality it is on the right.
