Reception

The best of the Scooby Snacks in Scooby-Doo comes from the supreme Scooby writer John Rozum. In "Fishy Story" Rozum creates an ingenious mystery, a quality and not easily discernible "monster" as well as his typically dead-on, great characterization for Mystery Inc. In addition to fulfilling all of these aspects, Rozum also comes up with an original and impressive motive for the culprit behind the crimes, which break from formula.

John McCrea with the Heroic Age studio alters the look of the Gang but keeps their essence, and his artwork stands out when Scoob, Shaggy, Daphne, Fred and Velma plunge under the depths. These scenes recall the fun, underwater adventuring of the Sea Devils.[1]
