I think this is a classic episode. But I remember being more frightened by the headdress' eyes moving back and forth than the actual knight itself. Not to mention the person those eyes belonged to! I also thought that the idea of the knight becoming alive at the night of the full moon sounds like a mix of Frankenstein's Monster and Werewolves.
(This is the headdress I was talking about)
I'm writing a Scooby-Doo fan fiction! Read it here:
This was actually a pretty cool episode which I enjoyed. The plot was nothing big, but for a start it was great! I loved how Scooby wore the Knight's armor part in the end. Classic Scooby from the begining to the present days!
Yep. At the end of the movie they're like "I hear there's something fishy going on in the city museum", and then this episode was included. It's a tie-in, back into the Scooby universe, thus the "Mystery Begins" haha.

I've been plotting out a Scooby-Doo story in my head for a while, so I decided to go back through the original series' episodes (and later on, everything up to Mystery Incorporated). What can I say? A nice start to a great, classic series!
Observations: - The date of June 10, '69 is seen on the delivery label. - Although this is their first case shown, Fred remarks, "We're up to our armor plates in another mystery,” implying that they have solved such cases before. - When the gang return the knight to Mr. Wickles, the knight's eyes can be seen during the conversation. However, Mr. Wickles is later revealed as the culprit, so the eyes shouldn't have been visible. - Daphne is the first character to say the famous quote, "Scooby-Doo, where are you?" - How can there be a full moon two nights in a row? - We see the back door of the Mystery Machine open in this episode, and it also appears to be stocked with various supplies, such as a first aid kit and a ladder. - Daphne remarks that Shaggy is the “swingingest gymnast in school.” - Velma apparently carries Shaggy’s medicine with her. - This is the first time we see Velma lose her glasses, though we don't see how she got them back. - Shaggy is revealed to be a ventriloquist and can throw his voice.
Scooby kinda acts more like a real dog in these episodes and with a more limited speech than later on. Most of the "goofs" in this episode you can pretty much write off for it being a cartoon and a comedy, but now I wonder how the gang didn't end up getting in trouble for breaking into the museum and damaging quite a few of the artifacts. Did they just blame it all on Mr. Wickles?
