Hmm...I remember seeing this special once a few years ago. Had the same style of animation for the NEW SCOOBY DOO SERIES (Where it just had SD, Shaggy, Daphne and Scrappy) but I did enjoy the villians a bit, espicially the not-so-similar twins.


But I was rather confused with the ending, when the villians did come back, despite being defeated. Were they defeated or not? Or is it just me? :confused:

Shaggy was wearing his obscure "red shirt" during this period, and the cover does'nt reflect that at all. Egad.

The plot of this movie is just banal, even when I first saw it (I'm more of a "Ghoul School" fan) Shaggy's potentially frightning werewolf transformation amounts to him pariticipating in a Whacky Races storyline involving Count Dracula

It seems Scrappy was deliberately omitted in the new artwork and story descriptions for all 3 movies. (You Scrappy haters have apparently made your impact!) Along with using the green T-shirt instead of the orange one, they are trying to make it look like the more recent movies.
Funny how in one of the movies (Cyberchase) they brought back the orange shirt, in what was supposed to be the "original design" gang the computer paired with the real gang.

Yeah, they were defeated...

My personal rationalization for the ending: Dracula came back to erase Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy's memories of seeing real monsters in the movie (for whatever reason)---thus explaining why they act like they'd never seen real monsters before in "Zombie Island" and other 90's/2000's productions. (I assume as well Vincent Van Ghoul earlier on might've also erased their memories of any prior supernatural-creature meetings, as well...). ;-)

Happy Birthday to the great Akira Toriyama!
Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
Happy birthday to Akira Toriyama. My moniker here should make it clear that I am a fan of the DB Franchise.
