1971 Funky Phantom - Headless Horseman

Similar to Hanna-Barbera's successful Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, The Funky Phantom featured three teenagers Skip, April, Augie and their dog Elmo who release the ghosts of an American Revolution patriot named Mudsy and his pet cat Boo from a longcase clock. Mudsy and Boo now accompany there new friends on many mysteries, always giving an invisible helping hand. The voice of Mudsy is identical to the character Snagglepuss, down to the use of Snagglepuss's catchphrases, even. Micky Dolenz from the Monkees voices the character of Skip.

In this episode Mudsy, April, Skip, Augie, Elmo and Boo visit the famous town of Sleepy Hollow. April becomes a little jealous when the boys begin flirting with Laurie Elwood, the manager of Sleepy Hollow Inn, who introduces them to the great, great, great grandson of Ichabod Crane. The gang soon discovers the town's ghostly legend, The Headless Horseman, is all too real as he eventually kidnaps Icky Crane. They also clash with Richard Travers V, a descendant of the town bully. This is the fifth episode of a total of 17 made in 1971-72.
