In Scooby-Doo Robbie Busch unwraps a good mystery in Egypt. The writer pays attention to the characterization of Mystery Inc. as well as that of the suspects and the witnesses to the crime. The way Mystery Inc. solves the puzzle makes sense, and each clue gives both teams of sleuths something important to do.
Scooby and Shaggy enjoy some terrific gag writing, and this could very well be Robert Pope's and Scott McRae's best work. They fashion an impressive looking mummy, detailed Egyptian motifs and still manage to squeeze out the proper body language and expressions from all the characters. Yet, it all falls apart when Busch reveals the motive to the crime. Somebody needs a history lesson.
