Then there is a the Oliver Syndrome, a strategy to flesh out the tired cast of an older show with a fresh young face, hoping to charm viewers back into paying close attention. In the case of Scooby Apocalypse, said kid is Cliffy, a whiny little child who is the fresh voice of innocence (but not for long) in a world gone crazy.
This is just a brief interlude while the Scoobies travel the highways and byways, dodging the monsters unleashed by the Dinkley virus. I consider this as a bit of a palette cleanser between more ambitious chapters of Scooby Apocalypse. But I expect to see more of these kinds of stories as the overall concept runs out of steam. After all, how long can dodge and evade remain interesting?
Also in this issue is the next chapter of Secret Squirrel. With Agent 000 suffering from injuries from a killicopter, Agent Beais “convinced” to call upon Moroccan Mole – as if being partnered with an urban rodent wasn’t bad enough.
