In Scooby-Doo's "Icy Reception," Frank Strom finds mystery in the skating world. The ghosts here are based here on Russian folk tales as well as contemporary heroes. Mystery Inc. fresh from their "Dragon's Eye" stay in sharp character while solving this particular dilemma.
The mystery is not fairplay, but the unique backdrop and the innocent insights into the characterization nicely makeup for the lack of any real clues to uncover the man behind the mask.
Anthony Williams and Jeff Albrecht along with the ever reliable palette of Paul Becton take several departures from the Hanna-Barbera (WB) models, but they still offer valid interpretations of the gang.
