Review: Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? #90

I love a mystery, and enjoy piecing the clues together to expose the crime and the culprit. “Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble,” is one of those stories, as the Scooby gang investigates the spectre at the laundrymat. I’m pleased to say I solved the mystery as quickly as they did, but considering the age level of the story, it’s hardly bragging.

The second story in this issue is “The Creeping Horror.” The Mystery Machine breaks down along a spooky road, which leads to Thingamajig Technologies Inc. The place appears to be abandoned, until a lone scientist explains that a mysterious creature has scared off the staff of Thingamajig. The whys and wherefores are not explained until the end, so the notion of clues that piece it all together kind of goes out the window. Oh, well, you can’t win them all.

Scooby is one of those lovable franchises from our youth that everyone has enjoyed at one time or another. It’s spawned a long line of imitators, and introduced generations to the concept of the whodunit. So what’s not to love with a tried and true formula?

Unfortunately, the writers sometimes dumb it down too far, expecting to write for the youngest (i.e. least sophisticated) of readers. But I appreciate it when a story aims a little higher, intended to entertain “all readers.” After all, that’s generally the idea behind and all ages title.
