Teenage Toons: The Thing and the Captain's Ghost (1979)

The Thing plays ghost buster when the Yancy St. Gang pretends to haunt an old riverboat. Talk about your transparent plots. Here's "The Thing and the Captain's Ghost".

It's this kind of slapstick silliness that prompted Hanna-Barbera, at the request of ABC, to reformat Scooby & Scrappy Doo the next year, once they realized a phony ghost story could be told in half the time.

One of the better entries in the series.

Rating: B.
