Plot: The gang investigate a mystery having smelly consequences.

Aigh! Why! Why! A thousand times, why! We were promised no Scrappy-Doo. In this issue we get a whole troop of them! Oh, they may look human, but each of these annoying brats are just one second away from shouting "Puppy Power!" The Evil One lives.

Take my advice. Tenderly tip-toe around the toad tots. Here are the good bits for which to watch. The gang works closely with a sharp, striking investigative reporter. The monster--an effective ghost--eschews holograms and rubber suits and relies upon plausible science fiction. The sympathetic monster maker's motive is understandable.

The stronger of the two mysteries easily rates five bullets alone entertains with an ingenious premise. The monster truly looks the part, and though the gang are in perfect character, Mr. Rozum adds a neat twist. Shaggy attempts to use a Scooby Snack only for his sneaky plan to backfire.

On page five Mr. Staton carries on a great chase scene that could have easily been filmed for the series. Mr. Rozum rescues Fed's penchant for setting Rube Goldberg styled traps, and every one of Mystery Inc. plays a part in solving the mystery. [1]
