Snow Job Too Small is the final episode of The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo Puppy Hour. Originally airing on December 18, 1982, this episode sees Scooby, Shaggy, & Scrappy encountering the Abominable Snowman during a Fearless Detective Agency job. This episode was written by Duane Poole.
Fun fact, Wilbur is voiced by Scott Menville, who would go on to voice Red Herring in a Pup Named Scooby-Doo, as well as Shaggy in Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue.
Hitting the Slopes
The gang is cruising along in a snowmobile where we learn that they have taken (under the Fearless Detective Agency) a job to escort Wilbur, or as Scrappy calls him, ‘A Spoiled Little Brat, to his Uncle Cosgrove’s Chalet to receive his inheritance. If he’s not there by midnight, he loses out on his fortune, and his Aunt Gracie and Cousin Sherwood will receive it all.
Along the way, Wilbur is abducted by the Abominable Snowman, and a series of comic mishaps take place as Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy try to recover Wilbur. During various interludes of the gang dodging gigantic snowballs rolling down hills, and clumsy skiing jumps, Scrappy realizes that the Abominable Snowman is wearing sneakers underneath his big feet.
Eventually rescuing Wilbur, the gang make it to the Chalet with 10 minutes to spare. All they have to do is wait for Wilbur’s lawyer to arrive, and then Wilbur will own a priceless painting, several gold statues and A couple more comedic hijinx take place and the gang end up trapping the Abominable Snowman revealing it to be Cousin Sherwood.
In the end, Wilbur gets his money, and the gang collectively groan at driving him back to his house.
I give this episode a 5 out of 10. Yeah, it’s a harmless episode with several fun skiing gags we’ve seen before in the franchise. And yeah, the Abominable Snowman looks cool. Otherwise, there’s not much memorable here, but it’s not painful to watch.
