Plot: Skeletons and witch-hunters figure into the Gang's mystery solving.

In the first story, Joe Staton, throughout the story a marvel, whirlwinds a three-panel history of Shaggy's and Scoob's encounters with skeleton costumes. Ro-Man and a sixties skeleton-clad Mexican wrestler on a motorcycle make cameos. The artwork sets up John Rozum's clever story in which the Gang attempt to cure the chickens of their bone-rattling fear. The use of Day of the Dead fiesta is pure genius. What better way to extinguish Shag's and Scoob's terror by equating it with their love of food?

Naturally, things are not so easy. Where the Gang travels, a mystery to solve cannot be far behind. This one is a doozy. The motive and the clues leading to Velma's conclusion are original.[1]
