Unloading The Mystery Machine

In recent weeks, there has been a rash of early morning Quaker Man sightings throughout the valley. Frightened residents have reported seeing a strangely dressed man peeping through their kitchen windows as they eat breakfast. The morning specter is often heard mumbling phrases like, ”Nothing is better for thee, than me”.

The mysterious Quaker Man

The Mystery Inc. gang arrived at the team track yesterday to supervise the careful unloading of their Mystery Machine.

Once on the ground, the gang quickly picked up on a trail of interesting clues, all of which lead to a creepy abandoned residence near Packsaddle Narrows.

There in the Narrows, the teens quite nearly captured Quaker Man, but he slipped away after a series of unavoidable follies.

It wasn’t long before the sluths were back on the trail of Quaker Man. It was a trail that lead straight back to Everett. That’s where they nabbed him, right at the Team Track.

Unmasked.

Who is the Quaker Man? Why has he been terrorizing the Valley? After unmasking the terror, the kids revealed him to be none other than Ferdinand Schumacher Jr. III – great grandson of the famed Akronite, Ferdinand Schumacher, a.k.a. the Oatmeal King.

“I just wanted to convince people to eat my great grandpappy’s rolled oats for breakfast. I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!”
