The kids get lost and wind up in the spooky ghost town of Gold City. They check into the local ranch house hotel only to find that they are the only ones in this nice hotel--all the other guests are being scared away by the "Miner 49'er," a miner who came to the city in 1849 and won't leave until he finds the last vein of gold in the city's old mine. The kids investigate the town, find a hidden entrance to the old mine, and unmask the "Miner 49'er"--and the real "gold" that the miner was digging up. Written by Spirit11

At the end of the mystery, while the gang explains the investigation to the hotel owner, Scooby takes the Miner 49'er's stilts and uses them to reach apples from a tree. There is a water trough behind Scooby when he is putting the stilts on, but when the gang looks over to see him picking apples, the trough is gone, but it then reappears when Scooby steps in the gopher hole and falls in it.

Sometimes you can still hear his moaning
17 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another classic Scooby Doo episode. The plot has the gang traveling to gold city, a city that they discover has been mostly abandoned. When the gang arrives, they are told by an old innkeeper to leave, because the town is apparently being haunted by a 150-year old miner. Obviously they don't listen, and decide to check out the town, to find out what's going on.

Great creepy atmosphere in this episode (I couldn't expect less from a ghost town). The miner's moan is certainly freaky, and the reveal at the end isn't that blatant. I especially love the scene where Scooby pretends to be sound like a train in order to lure the Miner to the trap (definitely one of the most creative traps in the series).

Scooby and Shaggy have a couple of funny moments in this episode as well.

9 / 10
