  • When the Mystery Machine runs out of gas, the gang find their way into a seemingly deserted cabin where The Harlem Globetrotters are relaxing and practicing for a big game. Everyone decides to take the excursion boat to Picnic Island, but they soon disccover that the island is no picnic -- beginning when they see a life preserver on the deserted Picnic Island Queen that reads "The Haunted Island Queen." Suddenly the ship sets sail with nobody at the wheel -- that is meant literally when the gang discovers a pair of hands in command of the wheel. When the ship arrives at Haunted Island, they take refuge in a deserted mansion where statues come to life, books fly off the shelves, buzzards pop out of cuckoo clocks, and ghosts and secret passages are everywhere. It's up to the gang and the Globetrotters to figure out the mystery of Haunted Island. . .but will the Globetrotters make it back in time for the big game? And if they do, will they have the strength to stay awake?moreless
