The Midnight Zone is the eleventh episode of the second season of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, and the thirty-seventh episode overall in the series.

Premise

The Gang infiltrates a WW2 German underwater robot facility off the California Coast.[1]

Synopsis

Robot soldier

Kriegstaffebot

A robot disguised as a Nazi World War II soldier attacks Cassidy Williams at her radio station, eventually self-destructing as Cassidy fights back, taking the entire building with it. She explains to the gang that these robots have been attacking her for the past week. Robots continue to attack the gang as they investigate. When the gang realizes that the robots are coming from deep underwater, Daphne recruits two of her babysitting charges, Tom and Tub, and their seal (also named Scooby), to transport the gang in their submarine to the robots' spawning vats, in an area the kids call "The Midnight Zone". Shortly after submerging, the sub is attacked by a group of robots and damaged, and the gang stumble upon an underwater base and attempt to use it to repair the sub, only to discover that the base is the factory where the robots are constructed, run by Professor Pericles. In the end, Pericles escapes leaving the laboratory to self-destruct, possibly killing Cassidy Williams as the gang, Tom and Tub, and Scooby the Seal escape.

Notes/trivia

  • This episode was aired in Latin America on November 10, 2012.
  • Tom, Tub, and Scooby the seal are from Moby Dick and Mighty Mightor, except that in the TV series Moby Dick was a real whale.
  • Tom and Tub's fathers are Dr. Paul Williams and Captain Michael Murphy from Sealab 2020, another Hanna-Barbara show.
  • Turning around a chair in which a villain sits, only to find a corpse, echoes the movie Psycho.
  • This episode was included in Cartoon Network's Scooby-Doo! Back to School Marathon (August 10-11, 2013).

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Velma picks up the Benevolent Lodge of Mystery photo, her swim suit sleeves are colored like Daphne's.
    • Then again, it could have been Daphne who picked up the photo.
  • A second later, Fred's arm is hidden behind Velma's head. His hand looks like the sleeve does not reach it.
