    • None: Ape Man wearing a Scooby-Doo mask
      The concept of a villain impersonating a good guy by wearing a realistic costume or mask of him/her (typically to give the hero a bad image or confuse him) is a classic Hanna-Barbera gag, which was also used with Ricochet Rabbit, Hong Kong Phooey, Grape Ape's pal Beegle Beagle, Squiddly Diddly, Fred Flintstone, Richie Rich, Snagglepuss and even Scooby-Dee. This would also occur on three later episodes, Scooby's Gold Medal Gambit, Homeward Hound and A Scooby-Doo Valentine, as well as on a later ad in the UK with David Beckham wearing a Scooby suit.
