"“Should have let the 'gators eat you! ARRR!”" - a review by timchuma

This instalment begins with a chase through a haunted castle by a big monster, with all the usual things happening, including the gang finding out that it was just some pensioner trying to keep everyone away from his stash.

Cut to a few years later and everything has changed, Daphne is the star of her own TV show with Fred as the producer. If he got a leg over with her still hasn't been resolved.

Scooby and Shaggy are working at customs at the international airport: Scooby is a drug sniffing dog! They love their job because they get to eat all the contraband food.

Velma is working at a mystery bookstore and not liking it much from what is shown.

This all changes when one day Daphne goes on TV promoting her new series on Haunted America. This prompts Fred to reunite the gang and pile into The Mystery Machine bound for New Orleans.

On the way to New Orleans they go looking for stories and expose them all for the frauds that they are. When they get to New Orleans they meet up with the cook from an island in the bayou called Moonscar Island and this is where the adventure really begins.

I really liked this movie, it's good to see a new adventure from the gang after all these years with no political correctness and no Scrappy Doo. The music performed by Third Eye Blind and Skycycle deserves a special mention as it really suits the action and is good in its own right.

Even though it is an animated feature, I actually prefer this movie over Scooby-Doo (2002), the live action film they made a couple of years ago.

Some of the voices were really annoying though, such as Daphne's and Velma's, but Scooby and Shaggy seemed OK and that's the main thing that needs to be right for the movie to work.

timchuma gives this movie 7 out of 10.
