What Witch is Which?

Time Machine Trauma is the third and final story in Scooby Doo... Where Are You! #8, by Charlton Comics. It was preceded by The Ghost of Grizzly Gulch! and The Wienie Roast Ghost.


A newly-invented time machine sends Shaggy and Scooby-Doo into the past, and brings back a barbarian in exchange.


Professor Kumquat invited the gang over to see his new time machine. While Shaggy and Scooby are inside, Daphne accidentally hits a lever, and Shaggy and Scooby get exchanged with a pre-historic barbarian named Bonax. Bonax announces he does not like sorcerers, and runs out. Meanwhile, Shaggy and Scooby are screwing around in the past, and get captured by a hungry cyclops. Bonax attacks a bus sign, gets hurt, and announces he wants to go home.

They bring him back, and the machine exchanges him with Shaggy and Scooby. After they return, the time machine collapses.
