is the theme of “The Ghost of the Bad Humor Man”.  A spooky night, a black cat, and thousands of dumped ice cream sticks lure Mystery Inc. to an ice cream factory dodging flavored phantoms.  A man in a phony leg cast and near-sighted night watchman, don’t make the mystery easier to solve.  From The Scooby Doo Show.

Final thoughts

If you haven’t worked or toured a food or beverage plant, its can be a big and expansive place.  Pipes, valves, and vats give it a weird, steam-punkish look.  Turn some lights off, hear nothing but silence, and you’re easily convinced something will jump out at you.  “The Ghost of the Bad Humor Man”, is otherwise a simple theme episode.  There is no back story, nor crazy technology.
