There's No Creature Like Snow Creature is the first episode of the first season of What's New, Scooby-Doo?.

Premise

The amateur sleuths travel to a mountain resort for some skiing and to watch a snowboarding competition. They end up investigating rumors of a snow creature that is attacking the participants. When Velma catches a cold and Fred breaks his leg, it's up to Scooby, Shaggy and Daphne to solve the mystery.

Synopsis

When snowboarding athlete Chris Klug decides to take a last run down the slopes at a mountain resort, he is attacked by a snow creature. While he managed to escape the creature's grasp, he ran into a tree and was injured.

Scooby and the gang arrive at the mountain resort where the Wilkinson Snowboarding Open is being held. There they learn that Chris Klug was recently injured under mysterious circumstances. They come face-to-face with the creature while investigating. Fred breaks his leg trying leading the monster away from his friends.

While Fred is bedridden, the remaining gang members continue to investigate. Due to the creature's interest in professional snowboarders, Shaggy was entered into the contest as a decoy. In the meantime, Velma caught a cold. This left Daphne to go on her own to find clues in an abandoned ski jump and encounter the creature again.

Fred manages to come up with a plan to capture the creature using Shaggy and Scooby-Doo as live bait. A chase ensues that leads to the duo and the creature flying off the ski jump. The creature shattered to pieces at the bottom. Upon further examination, the creature was determined to been made completely of transparent lucite (including the moving parts). It was also being controlled by a mystery sneak from the top of the ski jump. Before the culprit managed to escape, an avalanche caused by Velma's sneeze brought him down to the gang.

The culprit was revealed to be Avalanche Anderson, one of Fred's many childhood heroes. With his experience in the special effects world, Avalanche created the creature and controlled him using virtual reality technology. Avalanche wanted to regain his fame of being a pro snowboarder by getting rid of the competition.

While observing other snowboarders, Shaggy is told by Chris that he is still officially part of the contest. Shaggy said that nothing would get him to participate. That's when Scooby (wearing the head of the Snow Creature) appears behind a snow pile. As Shaggy tries to escape, Scooby jumps onto his back and the duo tumble down a slope to the finish line. Even though Shaggy won the competition, the million dollar prize was no longer available. Scooby and Shaggy laughed it off saying, "Easy come, easy go!".

Continuity

Notes/trivia

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Klug lands after his first flip, his entire face is missing.
  • The Mystery Machine is empty when it cuts Nancy off from asking her question to Mr. Wilkinson, and continues to be when Fred thinks he's watching a van that "looks" like the Mystery Machine on its own TV screen.
  • Elle only gets a couple of inches away from the right hand side of the screen and her snowboard and notepad already disappear making it look like they've been cut in half.
  • When Shaggy wonders who's been controlling the Snow Creature robot, the lower half of his jacket is brown.
  • When Velma says about watching all those snowboarding movies got her thinking that Avalanche must have connections in Hollywood, her left foot is hovering over the chair the latter is tied to, instead of on the ground.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • When the Mystery Machine makes a perfect parking, its windows are shiny so it's impossible to see inside. The windows of the cars on either side of the van are also shiny as well.
  • Apparently an exception to the gang sharing a hotel room was made in this episode. Probably because they have seperate bedrooms. Specifically, there's only one bedroom, another bed seems to be in the main room.
  • Daphne implies there was foul play in Theodore's accident, refering to his collider as a "so-called" snowboarder, or she was refering to the person's maneuvering skills. Either way, who's she to judge?
    • It seems she may have been reading how it was written, which makes it the newspaper implying foul play for some reason.
  • It must have been a prestigious competition if it still went ahead with no sponsers and the expected million dollar prize money having been removed.
  • In the end, no film crews or audience are visible at the competition.
  • The abrupt conclusion of Shaggy winning may be funnier, but not at all believable.
