The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #1 comic reviewCollecting the first two digital issues of the new The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries, The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #1 brings Mystery, Inc. to Gotham City to help Batman with a mystery of who stole the gloves off his first costume from a museum exhibit. While Fred and Daphne look for clues in the present, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and Velma travel into the past (something which draws the attention of the younger version of Batman).

The new 12-issue series picks up where Scooby-Doo! Team-Up left off, this time giving us adventures all centered around team-ups with the Caped Crusader. The solution to the mystery is a bit circular as Scooby, Shaggy, and Velma cause the very event they were investigating (and a bit of Bat-hypnosis helps explain why Batman didn’t remember the encounter).

Scooby-Doo! - Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. After catching a frozen caveman on the beach, Mystery, Inc. return it to Professors Wayne (John Stephenson) and Ingstrom (Don Messick) at Oceanland who apparently collect cavemen as well as fish and lost the artifact in a storm. Returning to the facility to retrieve Shaggy‘s (Casey Kasem) fishing pole, the gang discover the block of ice melted and the caveman walking the halls of Oceanland. When one of the professors vanishes and the other begins acting oddly with an unusual device, the gang have a pair of suspects and, although they don’t know it yet, a motive for the caveman’s appearance. Although the caveman turns out to be one of the show’s more forgettable monsters, the mystery works well enough to keep the episode rolling until the gang unmask the villain.

Scooby-Doo! - Jeepers, It's the Creeper television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. “Jeepers, It’s the Creeper” features one of the mostly unlikely occurrences in Scooby-Doo history: Mystery, Inc. choosing to go to a barn dance rather than solve a mystery. The episode opens with a bank guard attacked on the road by the mysterious Creeper, who has been stealing money from the local bank. After dropping the guard off at the Bank President‘s (Casey Kasem) home, Scoob-Dooy (Don Messick) and the gang completely ignore the mystery and head to a dance. They are only forced back into the mystery when the Creeper follows them in hopes of getting his hand on a mysterious piece of blank paper.

Scooby-Doo! - Mystery Mask Mix-Up television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. After Daphne (Heather North) buys a golden mask in a Chinatown shop, the gang is followed by a pair of zombies who eventually make off with both Daphne and the mask taking them to a temple in the hills. The episode is unusual in how Mystery, Inc. is dragged into the mystery, it also features some questionable racial elements that likely wouldn’t get the episode on the air today. “Mystery Mask Mix-Up” includes a ridiculous car chase in which the zombies follow the Mystery Machine through a hotel and over the rooftops of several buildings before it eventually crashes at the wharf (because of a banana peel) and the zombies have a chance to grab Daphne who refuses to give up the mask.

Scooby-Doo! - Nowhere to Hyde television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. In a twist, a ghost finds the gang in “Nowhere to Hyde” when the Ghost of Mr. Hyde (John Stephenson) hides in the back of the Mystery Machine after a jewel robbery. Once discovered, the ghost escapes and Mystery, Inc. chases him to a spooky house in the middle of nowhere where they find a scientist (Stephenson) suffering from blackouts and his unusual housekeeper Helga (Susan Stewart). While it’s unclear how exactly Hyde is a ghost, the design of the monster of the week is a lot of fun.
