-6 Headless Specter
Penrod Stillwall shows his head

Penrod Stillwall A.K.A The Headless Specter is the secondary antagonist of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "Haunted House Hang-Up". Penrod Stillwall is the great-great-great grandson of Jefferson Stillwall and searched his house to for the family treasure. So he dressed up like his great-great-great grandfather's ghost, which became the Headless Specter. 

Case History

Penrod created the Headless Specter to scare people away because he was afraid someone would steal his family's treasure. Mystery Inc. helped catch one such trespasser, with Fred Jones and Shaggy Rogers luring out yet another would-be phantom, trapping it under a pillar. It was discovered to be Penrod's greedy neighbor, Asa Shanks, who was after the treasure. He wanted to know how he could repay the gang for the help, with Shaggy only asking directions to the nearest pizza parlor.


  • The Headless Specter was later reused in the video game, Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights, where he is one of the monsters brought back by the Mastermind. The Headless Specter is the first monster Scooby sees in the game.
  • The Headless Count in the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo episode "Party Like It's 1899" is similar to the Headless Specter.
