Scooby-Doo: Mystery Inc. #1

The 50th anniversary of Scooby Snacks offers the gang a chance to tour the Scooby Snacks factory. It also delivers a mystery when key ingredients to making Scooby Snacks begin being stolen.

First, a mummy steals the "mother dough" from which all Scooby Snacks are made. Next, another monster steals the gold flakes for the special anniversary edition of the treat. Add to that a ghost scaring people in the halls, and Mystery, Inc. has a new case.

Reprinted from Scooby-Doo 50th Anniversary Giant #1, the single-issue adventure offers the basic Scooby-Doo adventure with the group searching the factory for clues, running from ghosts, and setting a trap to catch the culprit.

Although the sequence feels a bit rushed, the comic does have an amusing final twist for its intended all-age readers explaining why all the odd goings on started happening only after as Scooby and friends arrived.
