Reception

This is a very unusual issue of Scooby Doo. All three stories in some way veer from the formula of Mystery Inc. All three however do not suffer from the attempt at doing something new.

In the first tale, a shark-like demon--read as man in rubber suit--attempts to frighten away the beachgoers at Shoogy's Cove. As you may have deduced from the name, Shoogy is Shaggy's relative, and though Ivan Velez Jr. portrays the Gang in character, he does not give the meddling kids any clues whereby they can uncover the identity of the Shark Monster. Instead, they just lay out a hilarious trap and put the kibosh on him.

Robert Pope does a fair job at capturing the Gang at work and at play. He does forget on occasion that Daphne has a prominent chin, but his take on the other characters--especially Velma and an emotive Scooby--do not embarrass him. [1]
