Scooby Doo, Where Are You!

S1E2: A Clue for Scooby Doo (1969)

The gang investigate a mysterious glowing ghost who appears to be behind a series of boats going missing. The group track down the boats and then discover something in a glowing sea diver outfit. This here was the second episode in the series and it certainly helped set up a lot of things that would follow in future seasons. The biggest of course is the dark atmosphere that is running throughout the entire picture. Looking back on this series I can't help but really respect a cartoon that managed to be rather creepy at times and willing to be dark and talk about stuff like witchcraft. The monster here is a good one and I really loved the glowing suit and its green tint. The regular characters are also at the top of their game with Scooby and Shaggy getting a lot of good scenes together and plenty of laughs.
