In the second story, a stolen idol provides the lure for Mystery Inc. as the gang shoot the rapids and unravel a clever scheme. Terrance Griep Jr.'s hand can be easily seen in the story through the perfectly timed joke of Freddie admiring Shaggy and Scooby's unwitting monster trap, and for Daphne fans, let us all tilt our heads to one side and sigh as she hugs a young woman for no really good reason.
Joe Staton confidently illustrates both stories. In the first his artwork is heavily inked by Horacio Ottolini, but his style can be seen in the shadows and design of the characters.
His artwork is more recognizable when inked by Dave Hunt in the second Scooby-Snack. The singular look of each character as well as ethnicity give away his contribution even were there not a credits box included. Furthermore, the design of the wet suits and the scene's executions could have come from the box of a seventies action toy.
