It's a Wonderful Fright is the first of three stories in Scooby-Doo #115, by DC Comics. It was followed by Velma's Monsters of the World: The Yeti! and Santa's Evil Elves.


Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are being chased by the Plotter and his accomplices. Shaggy wishes that he had never met Mystery Inc., just before crashing through a rotten floor. While unconscious, he dreams of what the world would be like with no Mystery Inc.: overrun with costumed monsters who were never caught.

It's a Wonderful Xmas from Scooby-Scooby-Doooooooooooo. Shaggy takes a tumble while fleeing from an imaginatively conceived masquerade by Pope and McRae. His trip to la-la land has him dreaming a little dream where Mystery Inc. never existed.

Simmons takes a time-honored tradition through the magnifying glass of the sleuth. Despite being consistently scared witless--evidenced by hilarious wild takes from the Shagster, Shaggy quickly learns that it's preferable to a world over-run by flamboyant real estate scammers. Bonus bell ringing for Simmons having Shaggy solve the mystery that led him to the insight.[1]
