Scooby Doo: Homeward Hound

On their way to visit Fred’s uncle,
Count Van Jones, and his antique torture museum, the gang take a detour to see an international dog show.  Instead of a quiet day of pedigrees, they must solve a mystery of the deadly Cat Creature.  From What’s New, Scooby Doo?, it’s”Homeward Hound”.

The villain, mystery, and the technology

Final thoughts

Not a favorite, “Homeward Hound” story seems lazy recycling the Cat Creature that doesn’t come near the classic from The Scooby Doo Show era.  Paying subtle homages to Decoy for a Dognapper, it portrays betrayal even from an aloof, obviously-under-the-influence, acquaintance.
