Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

There is nothing in the dialogue or plot or storyline to so much as indicate that Sarah Ravencroft actually had children before she was banished into her spellbook if she had any children they would have been banished into the spellbook with Sarah or put to death. So Ben shouldn't even exist. See more »

Quotes

[after retrieving Sarah's spell book]
Ben Ravencroft: [in a sinister voice] What's the matter, Velma? Don't you like the new and improved Ben Ravencroft?
Velma: No, frankly, I don't.
Ben Ravencroft: Well, get used to it!

Velma's story
12 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this follow up to "Zombie Island", Velma finally gets a shot at romance when she and the gang meet Ben Ravencroft, a horror author with a shady family history - was his great, great, great grandma a witch of a wiccan? Well, someone's terrorizing his home town - is it a genuine witch or are the towns people trying to pull a scam? Do those creepy Vampire Singer girls have anything to do with it? The usual gags and calamity ensue.

In addition to Velma's love story, another innocent observation is made about Fred & Daphne - namely that Fred is always pairing himself with Daphne when the gang splits up. Shaggy finally shows interest in women, which later becomes a big factor in "Alien Invaders". Shaggy also appears to be shorter here than he used to be; he was always the tallest of the bunch but now appears to be hunched over. Must be the new animation.

But this is really about Velma and her long ignored need for love and affection (hinted at when she got all giggly around the rugged detective gardener at the end of "Zombie Island"). Never before has Velma ever had this kind of treatment in an animated Scooby feature, and odds are she won't get it again. And backing her up is the usual gang and good animation. Probably not for little kids though.
