Both of these Scooby Doo mysteries are well drawn by Joe Staton. Would you expect anything less? The stories however are so implausible that they could have come from the dreaded and feared Dark Ages of Scrappy-Doo.

I'm asked to believe that a Hong Kong studio is in so much demand that three individuals are after the property. You can't swing a hopping vampire in Hong Kong without hitting a film studio or amateur film-maker. I would wager at least eighty-percent of all movies originated in Hong Kong. So, okay, Sammo doesn't wish to sell, then there are plenty of others from which to choose.

I'm then asked to believe that these three individuals would use the same ghost and the same costume to scare off the personnel. I'm asked to believe that this is coincidence. The perpetrators do not know each other, nor is this a team scheme. It doesn't help that the gang really do not deduce the meaning behind the mischief but simply follow a suspect. How could they guess wrong? Bad dog! Bad! [1]
