This episode seeemed to bring back the Where Are You vibe to me. Nothing special but good. A really cool monster design and some fun ice cave scenes
Yeah, especially with the use of those older Ted Nichols music cues. It was interesting hearing the Native American motifs from the "Ghost City Hotel" track being left intact, particularly in scenes involving the totem poles (which does seem to make sense.)
What I mostly remember about this episode is Scooby-Doo's crush on that female sled dog, always heating up in excitement over her. This comes in handy when he's encased in ice, and the sled dog is well aware of Scooby's feelings for her and so she starts sniffing on the ice, causing Scooby to heat up and thaw out! It was cute when the sled dog would flirt with Scooby at times.
Anyone else also notice it looked like the falling snow was live-action? It's especially obvious in the first few minutes, as it looks a lot like the live-action snowfall effects Disney used to always use in their cartoons. But when it snows again later on, the flakes move more slowly, but they still have that live-action look (especially the way the flakes, which appear to be potato flakes, kind of flip and turn as they float down). They apparently just slowed down the live-action snow footage to superimpose it over the animation.
