Premise

The gang is on a whale watching trip out on the sea next to a small fishing town. They are having a great time. That is...until their adventure is cut short by...JEEPERS!...a giant sea monster. When the gang come back ashore, they learn from their host of their eventful trip that the town is suffering from a major fishing shortage. The only person who makes a living these days is a brave and foolhardy captain called Captain Squint. The gang have to solve this aquatic monster of a mystery before it's too late.

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]
