The Mystery of Haunted Island

Comments by: Rating: 8 out of 10 stars Posted: July 16, 2004

Salvaged by a few Odd jokes

In the third meeting with the Harlem Globetrotters, this would be one of the second season episodes, with the distinctively different artwork that was choppier and stiffer, looking more hurried.
Very similar work would be in the meetings with Josie and the Pussycats, Dick Van Dyke, Tim Conway, Speed Buggy and Don Adams, give or take a few others.
The gang and the globetrotters would be steered to Haunted Island, thinking they were going to Picnic Island for a nice vacation.
From that point on, everyone would be terrified by ghosts and spectral happenings.
Nevertheless, there would be one outstanding joke from the globetrotters all saying good night to each other.
"Good night, Curly, Bobby Jo, Pablo, Geese, Meadowlark."
"Good Night, Curly, Pablo, Bobby Jo, Gip, Meadowlark."
"Good Night, Pablo, Bobby Jo, Gip, Meadlowlark, Geese."
Meadowlark had to stop them.
Then when Meadowlark tricks Curly into volunteering to investigate a ghost, everyone enters to find Curly hiding in a bed.
"What are you doing in there, Curly?" Meadowlark asks.
"I volunteered," Curly says. Good bit.
The ending is a bit of one of the quickest mysteries ever to be solved.
In one of these Harlem Globetrotters movies, even tho Granny and Dribbles would never appear in them (was there a copyright problem, since both characters weren't real, were they owned by the company that made the original Globetrotters cartoon? Wasn't that HB? -- Or was it simply that Granny looked too much like Velma and dribbles like Scooby? -- That wasn't a problem with Josie and the Pussycats), Granny can be seen in a far off shot driving the Globetrotter van. She isn't seen anymore in the episode tho.
