Synopsis

The gang is smuggled into a strange country to help the Princess break an ancient curse place upon her mother. Long ago, a suitor courted the Princess but since he was not of Royal Blood, he was forbidden to marry her and placed a curse that no other may take her hand. Now, her granddaughter is faced with the same curse but the gang exposes the ghost as the son of the suitor, who was looking for revenge on the Princess' family for the affront to his father.

Reception

The first story is an entertaining but easily solvable romp that's based upon the swashbuckler-genre made popular by Dumas' Three Musketeers and movies such as Son of Monte Cristo. Bolstered mostly by the humor of Shaggy and Scooby as well as a feisty Princess who gets the best line, the Scooby Snack also features some strong characterization of Fred. Daphne and Velma however are almost sidelined.

The artwork by Leo Batic is mostly on model and outstanding where Shaggy and Scooby are concerned. However, his sense of scale falters when depicting Velma and Daphne. When running away from the faux ghost, they look to be about the same size. Velma should as earlier panels depict look up to Daphne. [1]
