Such a funny episode! The jazzy music effects and all the Scooby-begin-chased-by-the-villain moments were totally fun! I moslty liked it when Fred asked Shaggy to ring the door and he said: "ring-a-ding ding, coming up!"
I haven't watched this episode in forever but in my opinion all of the SDWAY episodes are good. I don't ever remember it being one of my favorites but it's enjoyable.
I honestly don't think Hank's costume is unoriginal. Let's remember: the 'ghost' is a miner; this is what he would have worn. The fact that in a small, deserted, mining town Hank wears what miners would have worn isn't overly surprising.
I maintain that Hank gets the award for least creative costume in a Scooby episode PERIOD. He's literally in his normal clothes with a beard...or the production crew just phoned it in on the day they designed the character.
Eh, I'd say Bluestone The Great's costume was pretty uncreative, I guess I could give it points for being simple.
Pretty solid episode. It does feel like an early though, with that whole jazz opening. The ghost town location was actually a great idea on the writers part and it made for some really good atmosphere. In particular I was always freaked out by the miner's moaning.
Hank being the minor was always an obvious, even as a child. Big Ben certainly wouldn't have made much sense.
