|Louisa wanted to get out of her contract with the Coolsville T.V. Studio and sign up for a contract with a rival TV studio.|
The gang speak like themselves and behave within character, but they drag this first mystery out far too long. Since magic has until the highly recommended Scooby-Doo movie never been accepted in Mystery Inc.'s adventures, the puzzle's solution seems obvious.
The motive of the first mystery doesn't really make too much sense. While I appreciate that money is the root cause, the event described rarely if ever happens in the land of television.
The artwork by Scott Neely offers a strikingly different look to that of Joe Staton's usual effortless depiction of Scoob and the Gang, and Neely gives the characters a lot of depth and distinction while keeping Mystery Inc. on model to make a valid interpretation.
