Suspects

Suspect Motive/reason
Officer Tollin He did look a bit creepy to Shaggy when he was disguised as the Toll Booth Clerk.
Zeke He was one of the only two buisnessmen left in the town on the road.
Marty The red paint on his hands matched the warning on the Gremlin's sign and the magnet stuck on the Mystery Machine matched one of the magnets that were missing from his "America in Magnets" sign.

Culprits

Culprit Motive/reason
Marty as the Gremlin He was sick of traffic on the road.

Notes/trivia

  • A gremlin clinging to the outside of a vehicle suggests the famous Twilight Zone episode, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.
  • The title sounds like Are We There Yet?.

Reception

Even for classic episodes of Scooby-doo, the first mystery by Chris Duffy is too obvious, and the running gag of sleeping Velma gets old really fast. The second mystery however prints with a red herring and an unexpected solution hinted at during the beginning. Joe Staton of course does a smashing storyboard.[1]
