Overview

Follow Sgoobidoo, famed canine detective, to the corner store, bingo hall and amusement park in a series of feeble intrigues with disappointing endings. Listen to the deafening silence of the broken television set as the wretched Sammy sits waiting for the professor, the prospector or his mother to call with a mission. Accompany the pitiful pooch and his humble human through a series of sad adventures in this collection of stories gathered in the familiar format of an Archie digest, interspersed with ketchup-flavoured games and advertisements.
In The Adventures of Sgoobidoo, Cathon pays homage once again to the B-series movies and detective novels that inspiredi The Pineapples of Wrath, her popular tiki murder mystery set in the Hawaiian quarter of Trois-Rivières, Quebec.

Cathon

Montréal-based artist Cathon makes comics and children's books. In 2013, she and fellow Québec cartoonist Iris published an absurd encyclopedia of everyday objects. Hugely popular, it was adapted by the National Film Board of Canada as The Great List of Everything, an animated web series. The Adventures of Sgoobidoo is her latest book to appear in English, joining Vampire Cousins and The Pineapples of Wrath, also published by Pow Pow Press. Her off-kilter humour draws upon pop culture and genre fiction, and she knows all of Columbo's iconic lines by heart.
