This article is about the Moat Monster in the DTV Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. For the one in the The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode The Haunted Horseman of Hagglethorn Hall, see Moat Monster (The Haunted Horseman of Hagglethorn Hall).

The Moat Monster was the disguise of Mr. Beeman, a real-estate agent who was secretly running a counterfeit operation in a castle.

Physical appearance

He was a large, scaly, and green amphibious creature. It had red pupils and black sclera. It had huge fangs and its hands and feet were webbed. It wore a very tattered, ragged clothing around its body and right arm.


He was threatening as he clawed Fred Jones while he was trying to keep the girls from falling ripping his shirt, but easily distracted. He went after Scooby-Doo when the dog landed in his arms when he could easily have pushed Freddy, Daphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley off the castle wall.

Powers and abilities

He has enough strength to break a wooden door down and it's claws can shred through rugs.


Early life

Mr. Beeman unmasked.

At an abandoned castle during a thunder storm, the monster was chasing the gang, separating Shaggy and Scooby and almost made Fred and the girls fall off a ledge. Scooby fell into its arms and down the stairs, with the monster following him. Scooby landed on a chandelier which snapped, sending him crashing into a clock, knocking down a row of armors like dominoes, with all of them toppling onto the monster, trapping it. The gang unmasked him and revealed his plot.[1]

This inspired Ben Ravencroft to use the gang to help him find Sarah Ravencroft's spellbook, after reading about the gang under a title called "Mystery Inc. cracks case of the Moat Monster".[2]

Daphne reminisced about the case on Chris's talk show, while promoting her investigative travel show, Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake.[1]

Ben Ravencroft read about it from a newspaper which gave him the idea to use Mystery Inc. in his plan to find the spellbook of his ancestor, Sarah Ravencroft.[3]

In the flashback, Daphne tells the gang that she was reminiscing about the summer where she was working at a TV station for her school, and Shaggy tells her that they know. Daphne was determined to find an actual supernatural case, not just another guy in a mask. Mr. Beeman's unmasking was part of the flashback. (Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island)
