Part of the problem with FP is that while on Scooby Doo all of the characters contribute to the `entertainment on Funky Phantom most of the humor comes from the ghost, either his antics or malapropisms "Heavens to Betsey Ross!" or mangled history "This is like when I crossed the Potomac with Washington"
"He crossed the Delaware"
"Were you there? `Cause I sure was!"
The mysteries are no where near as well written as in Scooby Doo (why anyone would be afraid of the `chicken man' is beyond me) and there is an odd tension between the 3 kids of PF as the two guys, voiced well by Mickey Dolenz both try to win the girl's affections and this patter tends to throw off the team feeling compared to SD where the 4 kids just seem friends. Lastly the level of animation is noticeably less than that of Scooby Doo as the HB workshops moved up to producing many more mystery shows for the Saturday morning grind.
Overall Funky Phantom is a wonderful reminder of a much simpler time, 1971, when children's cartoons were not just shilling for toy sales.Read more ›
I started watching the set and boy,what flashbacks.This is one of those funny,spooky shows that came along after Scooby's
Success early in the new decade. I've been trying to fill the gaps in memory with purchases of shows from that era and this one fits the bill nicely.From its opening theme I was transported to Saturday AM circa 1971. Not a bad place to be.
If you enjoy a B-rated Scooby-Doo you will enjoy these episodes. I know I did.
I already have some Dvd's of Hanna-barbera series and this one also surprise's me to.
Truly a masterpeach of classic animation.
Thank you All the people of Hanna-barbera studios.
The Funky Phantom is a cartoon in the vein of Scooby-Doo and Jabberjaw.
If you are just starting to collect classic cartoons, wait on this series, unless you are a fan of Micky Dolenz (The Monkees) or love Colonial history. Start first with Scooby-Doo: Where Are You? and Jonny Quest.
This is the but... I had purchased two DVD-R releases without problems before I purchased this one. There were problems with 5 episodes on this DVD-R. You couldn't get through an episode without it freezing. This summer I upgraded my ancient DVD player for a 3-D Blu-ray Disc player. This took care of the problems on 4 of the 5 episodes.
