  • goofed up

    the Villian dressed as a redbeard ghost was later reused in a later Scooby doo series spin off

    {Likwise a villian who tried to keep the Harlem Globetroters from playing basketball on aepsiode of Scooby doo was recvvyled from a scooby doo movie "The Huanted Houseboat" in which he was a good guy!}
  • Simply Classic!

    Got to be honest! I used to absolutely despise this episode but the more I've watched it the more I've began to really like it. There is no denying that it has a cracking location - between The Ghost Ship and Skull Island - The Plot made really good sense as well and the clues found in the episode were really clever and fitting. The Pirate Ghosts were superb too. (used to hate them though) This was a very fun episode to watch and the villain wasn't really who you were expecting it to be....even though there was only 1 only suspect. I doubt that this episode will ever be my favorite but it is certainly one of the best on Season 1 because it is just a completely entertaining scheme 9/10 :Dmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the scene when Shaggy and Scooby have just rescued Fred from the hook, the gang is standing there and Fred's arm is hanging there without a hand.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Shaggy: The sea water's boiling, Scoob, I wonder what pirates like in their stew?
      Scooby: Rains?
      Shaggy: Hey yeah, ghosts like chains, and what else? Oh yeah, some ashes from the stove, you know this could be real good? What else do pirates like?
      Scooby: Robrebs?
      Shaggy: Cobwebs! Aha, delightful. Now did we forget anything?
      Scooby: Roap.
      Shaggy: Soap? I hardly use it myself, but why not?

    • (about their phony breakfast food service)
      Butler: At 11 o'clock at night?
      Shaggy: Yeah, that way you don't have to get up in the morning to eat it.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Shaggy makes a rare reference to his being a hippie while winging the ingredients of Ghost Pirate Stew, one of which is a bar of soap. He admits to seldom having a need for soap personally. But if his hygiene is that bad, how can the rest of the gang spend all their time cooped up in the Mystery Machine with him?

    • First time the whole gang is captured.

    • Adapted into the comic book story "The Ghost Of Redbeard" (Gold Key issue #6, June 1971; reprinted in issue #26, August 1974).
