Notes/trivia

Reception

Robbie Busch, more than his cohorts for this issue, tries to follow Scooby-Doo's trail. Still, he does break from convention by removing Velma from the mystery-solving. Velma is more concerned with her aunt who because of the "ghost" collapses. There's no happy ending either for the mischief maker. He's off to the pokey.

While these stories do not tread the exact footfalls of previous paw-prints in the series, they still are without a doubt Scooby-Dooby-Dooby-Doo and interesting variations on a theme. [1]
