The most Blatant of the Scooby Doo clones
2 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Of all the Scooby Doo clones to emerge; Josie and the Pussycats, Speed Buggy, Jabber Jaw, Clue Club, etc., none were as obvious as Goober and the Ghostchasers. Voiced by Paul Winchell (Jerry Mahoney, Tigger, Dick Dastradly, Gargamel) and with Ronnie Schell (from Gomer Pyle) as the Shaggy voice, Goober was a green dog who would turn invisible when he was scared, leaving only his floating red hat and dog collar suspended in mid-air.

The 'gang' were reporters with no outstanding qualities, trying to get pictures of ghosts. Winchell is imitating Daws Butler's Snaggle Puss/ Funky Phantom voice as well with interesting results, and the first episode guested the Partridge 'children'; Susan Dey, Danny Bonaduce, Brian Foster and Suzanne Crough.

Still the show couldn't break the Scooby shadow and was banished to the Sunday morning graveyard of cartoons. And it was no better than Scooby either, as many of the clones weren't.
