Not quite Scooby Doo: The Funky Phantom (ABC, September 1971- September 1972) features the patented Hanna Barbera formula - group of kids (brainy redheaded Skip Gilroy, blonde beauty April Stewart and brawny Augie Anderson) travel around in their vehicle (dune buggy the Looney Duney with dog Elmo) with their unusual sidekick (Revolutionary War-era ghosts: Jonathan Wellington "Mudsy" Muddlemore and his cat Boo who die after getting stuck in a clock hiding from Redcoats) solving mysteries. Hilarity ensues. Here the inspiration seems to have come from an Abbott and Costello film, The Time of Their Lives, the cartoon was animated by Australian company Air Programs International and the Monkees' Micky Dolenz provided the voice of Skip. Daws Butler reused his Snaggletooth voice for Mudsy, even. It lasted for 17 episodes. (1973, Whitman Frame-Tray Puzzle)
10/21/16 #inktober2016 "big" #drawlloween2016 "Phantom Friday" "The Funky Phantom" was a cartoon by Hanna-Barbara in 1971. 3 teenagers and their dog find an old house in the rain and set the clock to midnight releasing two revolutionary war-era ghosts: an American patriot named Jonathan Wellington "Mudsy" Muddlemore and his cat "Boo". Mudsy was voiced by Daws Butler and sounded exactly like Snagglepuss. Even the premise was essentially like Scooby-Doo.
THE FUNKY PHANTOM GAME by Milton Bradley, 1971.
I've been picking up some vintage tv/movie related board games lately just to see what the gameplay and component designs are like related to the game's subject show or movie.
Most of these games are disappointing fr'instance this FUNKY PHANTOM game. The board itself is the only component with merit, the largest component true but the only one with anything to do with the show. The rest of the components are just a wooden die, four generic colored pawns and a bunch of punched out, cardstock squares with numbers on them.
The object of the game is to be the first player to gather enough numbered squares to add up to the sum of twelve. The idea being to "be the first to strike the hour of 12 and release Funky Phantom".
But I love the board's graphic and the box art is nice too. I'm always a sucker for good box art.
