  • Trully a great episode of the Scooby Doo Show.

    Trully a good episode yet I found a mistake in the making.In the beginning when Shaggy starts to takeall the food and drops it and Scooby eats the food and the plates they're on.Yet I still say it was a great episode.Also it was another episode with Scooby Dum.I laughed at how Shaggy refered the Headless Horseman as Pumpkin Puss.I think it is a great episode ,but how canCousin Ellwood(The Villian) ride on his horse as the Headless Horseman with the pumpkin on his.Simply mind bogalling.I think that they should redo these episodes and get rid of all the mistakes.moreless
