About

Spooky Skeleton refers to a series of image macros and reaction images featuring a picture of a cartoon skeleton grabbing its skull, tearing the skull from its neck and throwing it. Online, the image reflects frustration towards other people's posts on message boards and social media.

In the opening credits to the film, a number of ghoulish and ghostly images haunt the characters Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, including a skeleton that takes its skull off and tosses it.[1]
