I have mixed feelings for “The Ghostly Creep from the Deep”. On the one hand, the Harlem Globetrotters are the best thing about the episode. On the other, things turn worse when the Ghost of Redbeard makes an appearance. Re-purposing artwork from “Go Away Ghost Ship”, the villains are drawings posing as unfinished ghosts. The villains are never given a back story or even a name. They have no alter-ego’s, like the original C. L. Magnus and simply disappear when the episode is through with them. It does have one interesting distinction, it is the good guy who gets unmasked.
