I do believe this is the only episode where it's just Scooby and Shaggy where they actually solve a masked villain case (even though there are kids that are analogs of Fred and Velma). Bonus points for the uniqueness!
I had this feeling the gang would show up any minute but I wasn't disappointed!! I liked this episode very much! "Come on i wanna scare ya", ha! That was some tittle! Also a good villain and no arrestsing. "Camps belong to their campers! Show him kids!" That was my reaction to the ending for Clyde and I enjoyed Shaggy and Scooby as counselors!
I can't help but think that this episode was a homage to the Scrappy shorts where the three of them were on adventures together. But here without Scrappy, and with an actual monster, mystery and unmasking.

It probably was. Scooby Doo and the Goblin King though appears to be the closest in general to that format goes. This show did like playing with certain parts of the formula. An episode Scooby/shaggy only pretty much was an throwback in itself.

I really enjoyed this one, it's nice to see Shaggy actually becoming a competent mystery solver over the course of the show. We can even see obvious Shaphne illusions here even though Daphne isn't around. All in how Shaggy's applying himself to the mystery by behaving similar to her. He's asked himself "If I were Velma what would i do when i went to solve a case?" and of course "If i were Fred how do i catch the monster?" This probably lead to the pirate ghosts and mayan mysteries games on Kids WB!/Scoobydoo.com which felt like episodes to me, the only difference was "oh now i get to control the episode's outcome!" Scooby even shows a few signs of this too as early as New Mysteries but he didn't really become fully competent as a detective until Mystery Inc. Again he follows the Daphne pattern of "If i were (Fred/Velma) what would i do?"
