A Creator/HannaBarbera series [[FollowTheLeader similar to]] their earlier success ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'', ''The Funky Phantom'' featured three teenagers Skip, April and Augie and their dog, Elmo. While trying to get out of a storm, they entered an old house where the longcase clock was wrong. Upon setting the clock to midnight, they released two ghosts: Jonathan Wellington "Mudsy" Muddlemore, a ghost from UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, and his cat, Boo. The two of them allegedly hid inside the clock from the British during the Revolutionary War, but then couldn't get out and eventually died inside. Ever since being freed by their new friends, Mudsy and Boo have accompanied them on many mysteries, always giving an invisible helping hand.

* {{Expy}}: Mudsy voice is being done in the same way as ''WesternAnimation/{{Snagglepuss}}'' even down to the same verbal tics. But that is really as far as that goes between the two characters.

* FollowTheLeader: This show continues on the Meddling Kids train. Originally plot wise the show followed the ScoobyDooHoax formula but this was slowly played around with over the course of the season. Given some episodes there was no ScoobyDooHoax and in the last two the hoax is back burnered while the main plot of the episode involved Mudsy's past.
** On a rather unique side though the main cast tends to split the usual stock traits that usually would only go to one. April, Skip and Augie each respectively have times of leadership, being smart, cowardice and being the one needing help. Mudsy to a lesser extent follows Scooby's lead as the coward who can sometimes be brave. Elmo and Boo themselves tend to act a bit more usual for the silent pets.

* HeadlessHorseman: An episode features one as the monster of the week.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Mudsy sometimes acts like this. He sometimes goes on about speeches of things he claims he totally witnessed when alive that the kids call out that is not what the history books said happened.



** Played with that in one episode Augie and Skip gravitate to a different girl making April jealous. And when April gravitates to another guy, Augie and Skip are united in getting their girl back. This no doubt leading to OneTrueThreesome ideas.



* ScoobyDooHoax
** Averted in a few episodes, one of which had mundane thieves and another had a gimmick supervillain more in line with something out of ''WesternAnimation/DynomuttDogWonder''.
