Needed: Synopsis.

A Scooby-Doo Halloween is the sixth episode of the second season of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, and the twentieth overall.


The gang goes to Banning Junction to visit Velma's family for Halloween, but they meet the ghostly scarecrows who try to ruin the festivities. Hopefully they can save the town before the ghost of Hank Banning shows up.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • In a previous episode, Fred could not drive stick-shift, yet in this episode, the Mystery Machine (which Fred can drive quite well) is depicted as standard transmission. Instead, Shaggy is the one who has trouble with it.
  • At the party, Shaggy and Scooby came in wearing robot scarecrow costumes. During the song, they no longer have the pumpkin masks and they are getting into the music (ignoring the dangerous robots in the room). A few seconds later, they are in normal clothing and the scarecrow overalls have disappeared as well.
  • The direct-to-video film Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery, KISS' next appearance, it doesn't outright contradict this episode, but it does bring up hard to miss conflicts.
    • The real-world identities and realistic designs (i.e. Paul Stanley's hairy chest) in this episode are dropped in favour of highlighting the alter egos of KISS; they're reinvented as glam rock superheroes from an alternate dimension, and they only go by their nicknames. It's ever so slightly possible that the film just expands on what wasn't known in this episode.
    • Daphne has a major crush on Paul Stanley, but doesn't give any opinion whatsoever in this episode.
    • Shaggy (and to a lesser extent Scooby) is a big KISS fan in this episode, but doesn't seem to care either way in the film.
