Synopsis

Ruby and the others go on a train to pick up Doom from a kitty spa. On the way, weird stuff begins to happen on the train. The conductor goes missing and so does Poe, and there's a little weird man who keeps spying on everyone. It's up to Ruby to figure out these mysteries.

Opening Sketch

Scaredy Bat's hammock takes him on a ride.

Closing Sketch

We are shown what sheep are like when no one is looking at them.

Trivia

  • The second one-hour special.
  • This episode was supposed to air as a one hour special on YTV, but they only showed the second half.
  • We learned that Poe is scared of trains because of a pop-up book about trains that he read when he was a child. Ironically it was "The Little Engine That Could" a.k.a. "The Pony Engine".
  • This episode contains cameo appearances by Malady & Malaise, Uta & Gunther (from "Ubergloom"), Mr. White & Mr. White and Mr. Mummbles. None of them actually have any speaking parts.
  • Running Gags:
    • Frank and Len want to take a picture of the "waka-waka bird", but every time it passes by, they miss it completely.
    • Dramatic background music turns out to be performed live by Skele-Tunes and his band.
    • Ruby tries to speak "detective lingo", then has to explain to everyone what she meant by what she just said.
  • We learned in this episode that Ruby thinks Skull Boy has a nice voice.

Allusion

  • The closing sketch in this episode is quite similar to a well-known Far Side cartoon by Gary Larson where cows only walk on four and act like normal farm animals when a car passes by.
