Jeepers It’s the Creeper

Jeepers It's the Creeper is episode 21 from the original Scooby Doo tv show. Spoiler Alert - details of this Scooby Doo episode are below, so do not read further if you do not want to know.


On the way to a party, the gang comes across a car in the middle of the road. When they investigate, they find a bank guard beaten on the side of the road and his car ransacked. Although barely conscious, the guard warns them of the Creeper and hands them a piece of paper with the cryptic message, "the flame will tell."

The gang take the bank guard to the nearby home of the Bank president (Mr. Karswell), where they tell him everything they learned. Karswell tells the gang to go on to the party and he will take care of the guard until the Sheriff arrives.

The party is soon cut short by guess who - The Creeper. A hunchbacked, green creature who is accompanied by eerie music. After the obligatory chases, the gang soon captures the Creeper in a hay baler.

During the chase, Scooby Doo hides in chicken coup. He is there when a new chick hatches and is then mistaken for the chick's mother. Some good fun with this old gag.

  • The Monster: The Creeper
  • The Villian: The Bank President Mr. Karswell
  • Why: Karswell has been stealing money from the bank and staging it so that it looked like the mysterious Creeper was robbing the bank. The ambushed bank guard had secretly installed a camera in the bank vault that captured Karswell in the act. The piece of paper the guard gave the gang was the picture, which was activated by heat.
