History: In 1776 the cowardly New Englander Jonathan Muddlemore attempted to hide himself and his cat Boo from British soldiers inside a grandfather clock in an old mansion; though they succeeded in evading capture, unfortunately they found themselves stuck inside the clock and expired. Nearly two centuries later a group of intrepid teenagers sought refuge from a storm in the abandoned mansion, and when one of them set the clock to the correct time, midnight, Muddlemore and Boo's ghosts were released. Striking up a friendship with the teens, Mudsy (as they nicknamed their apparition ally) travelled the country with the teens, helping them investigate mysteries and capture criminals.
