Robbie Busch opens a trio of three excellent Scooby-Snacks. His "Miami Frights" features an excellent monster cunningly designed by Robert Pope, who is also on his game when having the gang follow clues or surf the waves.

The clues lead to an imaginative hideout, which is given an eerie ambiance by inker Scott McRae. The solution draws from the fairplay deck, and the scoundrel would have gotten away with it if not for "those meddling kids and their dog."[1]
