Mr. Griep Jr.'s welcome return to Scooby-Doo includes a subversive deflection of the formula. Daphne and the guest-star have a history: one judging by Ms. Matchette's hilarious Daphne-expression that seems more resonant to him than her. This misinterpretation also leads to a warm reconciliation at the end of the story.

Scooby and Shaggy manage to outmaneuver Fred, and they remember their past adventures. The story doesn't seem to just take place from scratch without any recognition of what's gone before. The story however thwarts their plans to say safe and unafraid.

The mystery is a clever romp with the identity of the monster concealed in the dialogue--the only common trait shared by both shorts--and what most would consider a throwaway scene. In other words, this issue gives everything for which you can wish in a comic book whose value far exceeds its price. [1]
