At the restaurant when the kids are reading the newspaper, Scooby puts straws together to steal from Shaggy's drink, and succeeds until Shaggy cuts the straw. After Velma says, "That solves the mystery!" the focus is on four drinks on the table, and they are all full. Shaggy never got a refill. See more »

A Clue for Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo, Where Are You!

S1E2: A Clue for Scooby Doo (1969)

The gang investigate a mysterious glowing ghost who appears to be behind a series of boats going missing. The group track down the boats and then discover something in a glowing sea diver outfit. This here was the second episode in the series and it certainly helped set up a lot of things that would follow in future seasons. The biggest of course is the dark atmosphere that is running throughout the entire picture. Looking back on this series I can't help but really respect a cartoon that managed to be rather creepy at times and willing to be dark and talk about stuff like witchcraft. The monster here is a good one and I really loved the glowing suit and its green tint. The regular characters are also at the top of their game with Scooby and Shaggy getting a lot of good scenes together and plenty of laughs.
