Reception

Perhaps the story with the gang strapped to a table under a swinging pendulum will do the trick. Nope. I'll give Peterson this much. The way in which they extract themselves from the "trap" is within the characterization of Mystery Inc. and Scooby-Doo. However, he doesn't provide a good enough reason to explain how they happened to be in the predicament, and again, it's nothing. Completely benign. The false phantoms and masked monsters of Scooby-Doo Where Are You?, really attempted to get Mystery Inc. out of the way. Here all three stories amount to misunderstandings rather than crime. Bah![1]
