Premise

The gang investigates the drive-in to find that the ghost is not real as they interview the old movie producer who held on to the costume from the movie, but its gone. The gang set a trap and catch Tooma only to find out that it is the drive-in owner's brother-in-law.

Reception

Two stories in Scooby-Doo make filling Scooby Snacks for fans. The first while far from fair play makes up for the fact by taking a number of nice twists and unexpected turns that involve schlock movies. As expected, the story features a number of puns and allusions to the lower echelons of cinema, but all are relayed with respect.

I don't recall ever seeing Mr. Croker's name associated with Mystery Inc. However, the gang are all in perfect character and given as much depth as the interpretations found in an average John Rozum/Joe Staton story. Keep in mind Scooby-Doo average stories are superior to most of the competition's average stories. It's a superior title in every respect.

Part of the gang's on-model behavior may stem from Dave Hunt providing his usual strong, weighty inks to the excellent pencils. It's always gratifying to see an inker enhancing another penciler's work because you can better see what he brings overall to the general look and feel of any story. Mr. Hunt's shadow-work and his rendering of depth becomes more apparent. [1]
