Many cartoons attempted to capitalize on the success of Scooby Doo. Clue Club was one of the better results. Many of their cases were adaptations of mysteries from the TV series Banacek but others were original ideas.
Each episode followed a similar pattern. After a short introduction a crime was committed. During the investigation D.D., Pepper, and sometimes Larry encounter a monster or mysterious character.
Woofer and Whimper also encounter a monster: sometimes the same one the kids meet, sometimes a different one. When the suspects are introduced Woofer accuses every one of them.
The clues are generally very vague but they're enough for Larry to solve the crime. Dotty isn't allowd to help the others in the field but she always finds some way to be present when the criminal is exposed. Woofer then tells Whimper that he knew who it was all the time.
Despite using the same template for each episode, Clue Club is an enjoyable cartoon. Hopefully it will come out on DVD.moreless
