The members of Mystery, Inc. will be leaving Ghost Chasers Magazine soon, but not before they go on one final assignment. The assignment is to cover a Harlem Globetrotters game in News Orleans that is under threat from the Ghost of Redbeard. This time, Ted, Tina, Gillie, and Goober are accompanying them. But even with the help of Big Easy Lofton and Flight Time Lang, can these mystery-solvers solve the mystery?
This episode is based on The New Scooby-Doo Movies episodes, The Ghostly Creep from the Deep and The Mystery of Haunted Island.
This episode is the end of a story arc that began with A Magazine for Ghosts and continued with the episodes in between. The events of Legend Of The Mellog are mentioned in particular with Tina mentioning that the defeat of the Mellog by Captain Caveman was big news in the Ghost Chasers Magazine thanks to Mystery, Inc. and increased the number of subscriptions to the magazine.
This episode is also the backdoor pilot for a spin-off series starring Goober and the Ghost Chasers.
