Hassle in the Castle

Scooby Doo, Where Are You!

S1E3: Hassle in the Castle (1969)

The gang are out on their boat when they run it up on the land and end up in a creepy castle. Before long they're being chased by a ghost so naturally they start to investigate. This third episode is actually a good one, although it falls well short of being a classic. The episode is lacking a great villain and enough laughs to carry the running time but there's still enough stuff going on here to make it worth viewing and especially if you're a fan of the series. I think the highlight is when Scooby discovers a magician's hat and decides to do a couple tricks. He eventually sees a rabbit but has a hard time bringing it back on a second try. Another highlight is when Daphne gets separated from the group and ends up sliding down to a secret location of the castle. The villain is basically just a bland ghost with the typical white sheet. This isn't a horrible villain but it really doesn't stand out in any way, shape or form. Fans of the series will certainly get a couple good laughs but if you're new to the original series then it's not the best place to start.
