The gang arrives at the scene where the bank guard is on the ground near the fallen tree and his car has been ransacked. In the shot where Daphne touches the guard, he's got the sheet of paper in his hand, which wasn't there when the gang spots him. Then in the shot where Fred suggests they go to the bank president's house, the guard has two sheets of paper below his hand. See more »

The Creeper is enough to give one the creeps
2 August 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

While not quite one of the classics of the show, "Jeepers it's the Creeper" is in the top end in ranking the episodes. Have always really liked the episode and like it even more now actually.

The animation is fine, lush colours, smooth drawings and very detailed backgrounds that add to the atmosphere. The animation on the Creeper adds a huge amount to the impact of the character. The music is haunting and energetic, and the classic theme song, accompanying a fun, affectionate montage of the season's villains, once again shows why its iconic status is justified.

Not a huge fan of the use of songs in the chase sequences, a few work but others don't fit quite so well mood-wise and feel samey. While "Daydreamin'" is not an amazing song, it doesn't distract at all from the scene and is one of the more memorable songs used in the second season. The horse chase scene is a lot of fun and is one of the second season's best chase scenes.

'Scooby Doo Where are You' has always excelled in its mix of atmosphere and humour. "Jeepers it's the Creeper" is hardly an exception. It gets off to a quite tense start, while the Creeper is to me one of the show's creepiest and most iconic with an incredible look and a truly frightening moan. The perpetrator isn't too hard to figure out, but the use of clues and the solution are pretty genius, and the mystery is hugely fun and has a lot of atmosphere, like any scene with the Creeper or the scene with the hermit.

"Jeepers it's the Creeper" has plenty of funny moments too, all of them from Shaggy and Scooby whose relationship still charms, affects and amuses. As great as the horse chase was, the highlight is the interaction between Scooby and the adorable baby chick making for some hilarious and irresistibly cute moments. The voice acting is solid as rocks, particularly as ever from Don Messick and Casey Kasem.

All in all, fantastic episode and very close to being a classic, while not quite it is one of the show's better episodes. 10/10 Bethany Cox
