whenever there's trouble

Calling all junior detectives! Mr. Bloodhound isn't available, and I need your help. In the eighties, PBS ran a science show for kids called 3-2-1 Contact which often featured a terrific serialized mystery, The Bloodhound Gang. One of the capers guest-starred Six Feet Under's Frances Conroy. Can you help me figure out which one?

IMDB gives the year as 1984, which isn't that useful. I'm looking for the title of the mystery. (They all began with "The Case of the...")

That's all the clues I have, but I know if we put our heads together, we can figure it out. Thanks, gang!

IMDb lists a specific "3-2-1 Contact" episode with Frances Conroy as "Earth: Building Models" from 9 Nov. 1984, season 3, episode 15. If there's any chance in finding that episode, it should lead you to "The Bloodhound Gang" case title.

This page suggests that it would be The Case of the Haunted House.

If you pull up the episode from Season 3 on this page, it says it's The Case of the Haunted House.

On preview, two websites agree, must be true!

Apparently she played "Kate Littlefield."

There's a page for the episode on tv.com that refers to "The Case of the Haunted House":
"Paco convinces Miguel and Robin to try and protect their sand castle from the rising tide. The Bloodhound Gang unravels The Case of the Haunted House."
(On preview, korej and ktkt have it!)

I knew you guys would be there on the double!

If anyone can find the video, I'd love to see it. (I could swear they were all on YouTube at one time.)

They are still on YouTube. Add 321 Contact to your search or you'll get the music group. But I didn't see this episode.
