.Only thing I did like about this cartoon was the theme song- it was catchy but other than that it was a shameless ripoff of Scooby Doo(Kids solving mysteries with the help of a sidekick- in this case a ghost and a cat instead of a dog and even a Shaggy like character(Skip) is involved.
The Plot: 2 guys and a Girl get caught in a storm and end up taking shelter in a spooky old house. One of the guys notices an old clock set to the wrong time ,when he sets it to midnight a ghost and his cat emerge.(Daws Butler who provided the voice of the phantom basically copies Snagglepuss's voice and its really bad).
The ghosts are from the revolutionary war time period and end up going along with the kids solving mysteries much like the Scooby Doo gang. Only lasted one season for obvious reasons,this had already been done alot better with Scooby Doo and we Sat morning cartoon brats were wise to it and preferred Scooby over this mess.
