Synopsis[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

Scaredy Bat's hammock takes him on a ride.

Closing Sketch[edit | edit source]

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

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the final episode of Ruby Gloom.
  • 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.
    • Misery's illness
  • We learned in this episode that Ruby thinks Skull Boy has a nice voice.
  • Goof: In part two of the episode, in the dark shadow of the train before the intro, Misery is nowhere to be seen in the caboose when she sneezed in part one

Allusion[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
