Tim Curry, long term fan of Scooby-Doo, considers "Dreadful darkness, hear my cry. Bring back one who cannot die" to be his favorite line throughout his career as he believes it was an inside joke referring to Scooby-Doo (who entered the scene after the line was said). See more »

What's the matter, Velma? Don't you like the new and improved Ben Ravencroft?

The main problem with this Scooby outing is that the more recent seasons and films don't compare with the older Scooby Doo episodes of the golden years.
Do you remember the glory years? The mysteries had the perfect balance of comedy and comic spookiness. The haunted castles, mansions, and murder mysteries with great setup, better vocal work, and delightful plots and jokes.
Unfortunately, the series and films will never equal the glory years, but at least we will eventually be able to own them all on DVD and I'm sure they will continue to play forever on cable. Hell, they could make a Scooby Doo channel with the number of episodes out there.
