Season three

Professor Greer unmasked

Professor Greer unmasked.

The Mantis came out of the ferns and chased the mailman. When Scooby-Doo gave the flowers to the Mantis, it sneezed. Professor Greer told the gang about the Praying Mantis.

The Mantis continued to chase the gang, even taking Daphne Blake hostage. When it was finally trapped, the three suspects ended up appearing. The Mantis was revealed to be Professor Greer.



  • Professor Greer must have been allergic to flowers because he was the Mantis when he sneezed from the flowers.
  • At the beginning, the Mantis appeared to be almost as tall as a truck when facing the mailman, but strangley, it was a smaller size when it attacked Mystery Inc..
  • The Mantis's growls and hisses were reused from the Gator Ghoul.
