This article is about the Ghost of Redbeard from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode Go Away Ghost Ship​​. For other uses, see Ghost of Redbeard (disambiguation).

The Ghost of Redbeard was the disguise of C.L. Magnus, the owner of a failing steamship line.

Physical appearance

Redbeard's Ghost resembled a middle-aged Caucasian male, with a red beard, hence the name. He wore a black pirate hat with a skull and crossbones and a pink bandana underneath. He also wore a red coat with a pink interior, pink pants, and brown boots.


He embraced the pirate role, including taking prisoners and chaining them up, threatening death, or forcing them to cook for him.


Early life

Redbeard was known as the terror of the Seven Seas, who was brought to justice by Mr. Magnus's ancestors. He swore his revenge.[2]
