Scooby Doo fan must-see
7 May 2004 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

I'd like to note that the Scooby Doo series was pulled directly from this film. I highly recommend it, the music is superb and the humour timeless. The Bad Humour Man scene is an absolute classic, and I have used it to teach about the time period and the history of entertainment. American Movie Classics used to have it in their Halloween season rotation, but I haven't seen it there in a while. In fact, I find it distressing that they now play such things like The Terminator as classics! I do hope you'll check this one out, it's a real keeper for anybody's library and should not be overlooked. And you can't beat Peter Lorre, Bela Lugosi, and Boris Karloff in the same room! Enjoy!
