Crystal Key Ghost He hid out in the gang's van, so that he could have a new home with them.

Notes/trivia

  • At the end the ghost thinks he has found an envelope in the glove compartment that tells him "where you all live." Since they don't all live in the same house, the ghost may have gotten hold of some other address entirely, which would account for why he is never seen again. Although, they do share a "clubhouse" together in DC Comics canon.

Reception

In the last story Darryl Taylor Kravitz pits Mystery Inc. against the Freeloading Ghost. Bleah. While the Scooby-Doo movies brought the Gang face to face with genuine supernatural creatures and magic, the creators behind those works did so with panache. In Kravitz's story, an annoying ghost wastes time with a love of his own voice. The author clearly likes his character but at the expense of the stars.

I give you the worst, most inconsequential issue of Scooby-Doo. Let's hope this doesn't start a trend.[1]
