Final thoughts

“The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair” is not a terrible episode.  Split into two chapters, the first is a mystery ending in a tricked-out fun house with The Joker and The Penguin.  In a children’s cartoon, they’re pretty dumb down even Batman and Robin are a little naive.  The second chapter pits the mystery’s mastermind against the gang in an underground toy warehouse.   The change of scenery and a new villain showdown gives enough energy into the episode without feeling padded.   The empty headed and too-oft repeated defense of poor, Mrs. Baker is the only nitpick I have.   Why, a woman villain!  Why so unbelievable?  In fact, Mrs. Baker may be the first woman villain, to be unmasked alone, since the inception of Scooby Doo, Where are You!
