Unfair Play At The Fair is a story in Scooby-Doo! #87 by DC Comics.


Velma's aunt's renaissance fair is being haunted by the ghost of a court jester. The gang sets a trap and exposes the fiend as Velma's uncle (the brother of her aunt). He is trying to drive the fair into the ground so Velma's aunt would finally sell it to their competition.

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]
