Reception

The same can be said of Karen Matchette in the next mystery. She however is stuck with a monster that cannot match the power of the classic Scooby villain The Snow Demon.

Matchette tries extremely hard. If she cannot make the beast menacing in look, she will make it menacing in its actions. The color scheme also enlivens this potentially risible spook into a more respectable oddity.

The second puzzle's plot offers complexity that allows the delectable Daphne to show off her sleuthing ability. Mr. Lewis also has the audacity to construct a Freddie trap that actually works and perfectly times the use of Shaggy and Scooby. The scene not only provides some good-natured fun but also remarks on the friendship shared between the gang of those "meddling kids and their dog." [1]
