Reception

The second story has a definite current feel. The characters here behave more like the updated versions seen in the movie and the new highly recommended cartoon series What's New Scooby-Doo? Neither of the two productions involved a complete departure from their classic counterparts, but there's a more jokey feeling amid the gang. Fortunately, this fits with their friendship and doesn't get in the way of solving the mystery.

Vincent DePorter keeping in tune with the mood gives the gang an update. He anticipates the advances in animation and thus makes the gang more fluid in motion. The stormy atmosphere of the at sea setting for instance blows hair and skirts. Velma has more curves than expected ala' Linda Cardelini. Daphne has a Dan DeCarlo look to the face that while definitely off-model from the Hanna-Barbera character fits her more sparkly personality ala' Sara Michelle Gellar. [1]
