Trivia

Ben Ravencroft's home town is Oakhaven, Massachusetts which is a fictional town. The building of the Puritan Village would surmise it's a substitute for Sturbridge or Plymouth. Witches would surmise it's Salem or Danvers. None of the people in the town speak with a Boston-area accent. Ben speaks with a light British accent and the Mayor speaks with a very distinct Maine accent. See more »

Goofs

Everyone even Sarah Ravencroft herself never considered Ben might by lying Ben when he said he was descended from Sarah Ravencroft when he had lied about everything else. See more »

Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost (1999)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Scooby, Shaggey and the gang get invited to Oakhaven by a famous horror writer. This town is famous for having the ghost of an old witch who was burnt at the stake years earlier. The gang ends up solving this mystery quiet easily but then a bigger case pops up. SCOOBY-DOO AND THE WITCH'S GHOST isn't a complete success but I think fans of the dog will find enough in it to make it worth viewing. What I enjoyed most about this film is the animation. That's not something I usually say but I thought the look of the film was absolutely the best thing going for it. This is especially true during the opening scenes when we first get to Oakhaven. The fall is in full bloom and I really loved how the orange and yellows colors are used so well. The actual mystery here isn't the greatest but I thought it was interesting enough to keep the viewer entertained in what was going on. The design of the witch was effective enough as were the other monsters that popped up at times. The comedy in the film isn't the best I've seen but there were a few good moments including a sequence where Scooby and Shaggy get to eat all they want in a restaurant.
