Sammy the Shrimp unmasked

Sammy the Shrimp unmasked.

When the Mystery Machine hit a street full of popsicles and had an accident, the kids tried to make a phone call at the Happy Humor Ice Cream Factory. When they discovered the Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry Technicolor Phantoms, they decided to stick around and solve the mystery.



  • The Technicolor Phantoms are similar to the Phantom Shadows.
  • In one scene, Sammy is telling the kids about the phantoms, and it shows the Vanilla Technicolor Phantom spying on them. This is either a mistake on the animator's part or one of the other two criminals is in the costume.
