I loved this episode! Having the entire setting of the episode be in the old Wainsly Hall mansion at night was super creepy. Moreover, I think the villain was one of the scariest of the entire series so far. The lore that she was a bitter woman left at the alter was interesting, especially since we don't tend to get a lot of lore with Guess Who. She had a pretty creepy design too! It's definitely worth noting that about how the witch tricks them into eating the sweet potato pie that makes them have lucid dreams about her wedding is terrifying! Clearly, the witch is somehow able to control exactly what they are dreaming about then, which raises both the fear-factor, and a lot of questions!
Jeff Foxworthy as a guest star was decent. The running gag of Jeff trying to prove that Fred, Shaggy and Scooby were all "country boys" got really irritating after a while, but with the exception of that, I didn't mind Jeff's presence in the episode too much. The creepy vibe of the episode and the witch's lore/design definitely made up for it in my book.
Shaggy and Scooby eating that hundred-year (or more) old buffet was disgusting! I also thought them being so intrigued by the bug zapper kinda weird. Certainly not the best episode, but I think the tone and the villain took this episode a long way.

I found it odd that Jeff Foxworthy couldn't say "redneck". Is that not kid appropriate? About the bug zapper thing, watching them is a redneck pastime, or at least the Blue Collar Comedy Tour used to joke that it was true. Overall an enjoyable episode though. I feel like a lot of these are hit or miss.
