History

Scooby-Doo! Where Are You?

What a Night for a Knight

In What a Night for a Knight he first appeared, alongside the five main characters, in the pilot episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, which was called What a Night for a Knight. He was clad in suit of black armor and was voiced by the late Bob Papenbrook. Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo found the mysterious black knight that the kids return to the museum. When there, they discover the archaeologist delivering the knight is missing, and the knight has come to life. The man behind the Black Knight Armor was the curator Jeremiah Wickles (also known as Old Man Wickles), who was using the legend to cover up his art forgery scheme.

Black Knight in Scooby-Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed

He appears in the 2004 live-action Scooby-Doo movie Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed as one of the secondary antagonists. He is the second monster to be brought to life by the Evil Masked Figure, (the first one being, the Pterodactyl Ghost) along with the 10,000 Volt Ghost and sneaks into Old Man Wickles' manor to await Mystery Inc.'s arrival. He battles Daphne Blake in the manor, using his ghostly sword. He is defeated by Velma who locates his weakness and kicks him in the groin he groans and refers to his testicles as his " round tables". He later appears to battle Fred Jones in a joust, riding a horse while Fred uses a motorbike. The Black Knight and 10,000 Volt Ghost then corner Fred and Daphne. Daphne uses some jumper cables to absorb all of the 10,000 Volt Ghost's electricity into the Black Knight, causing him to explode and be defeated, his charred head rolls across the ground and exclaims his mistake with' "Oh, crap!". It is assumed that the Black Knight Ghost's head turned back into a costume after Scooby-Doo turn on the control panel which convert all of the monsters back into lifeless costumes.

Trivia

  • He is the very first monster of the Scooby-Doo franchise, first appearing in the very beginning.
  • The scene in What a Night for a Knight where he loams over Scooby is in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Season 1 intro.
  • It's been a real mystery if the Black Knight Ghost really was Mystery Inc's very first mystery. In Monsters Unleashed, Fred declared that the Black Knight Ghost was their very first case. However, in the TV show A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, which shows that Scooby and his friends having solving mysteries since they were little, the first monster that they unmasked was the Green Goo Monster. Plus Chickenstien, a monster from that show is in the film too. Also in the 2009 live-action film Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins; the first mystery they solved in high school was a ghost which was their principal in disguise. Not to mention in What a Night For a Knight, Fred say; "It look like we have another mystery on our hands." It is possible that the Black Knight Ghost was one of their first cases. Or perhaps it references how What a Night for a Knight (his original appearance), was the first production of the Scooby-Doo franchise.
  • There is a Lego version of the Black Knight Ghost, along with Lego versions of The Phantom and the Vampire from A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts.
