Three stories find their mark in Scooby-Doo, but the Cupid’s Arrow routine really doesn’t come across very well, and the powers that be would have been better off keeping the Gang out of the holiday spirit and rely upon the Poe theme.

The first story by Scott Peterson is a tale of ghostly love that "moves on little cat's feet"--to quote Sandberg--through various Poe allusions. Tim Levins conjures the crafty physical comedy as well as the expertly executed wit. For instance, Levins manifests a hilarious instance where Daphne cannot hold the spooked, gangly and heavy Shaggy who leaped into her arms with a "Zoinks!" Levins illustrates character-driven humor and quiet, sweet scenes with equal aplomb. Daphne literally goes wide-eyed and gives readers a window into her romantic nature, which persuades the Gang's involvement. The finale is steeped in emotion and humanity.[1]
