Billy West did not reprise his role as Shaggy from the previous film Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island (1998). Reason being, West needed time for his roles as Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth and Dr. John Zoidberg on Futurama (1999), so director Jim Stenstrum was thinking of replacing West with Rob Paulsen, Jeff Bennett, Tom Kenny and Dee Bradley Baker, but they all lost to Scott Innes.

It's not the one that started it all, but it is the first one I saw, the first one that said: "Look at me, Scooby Doo is relevant again!" And it was.
Everything fit beautifully with the late 90s. The Stephen King parody, the Hex Girls quasi-Goth band with an environmentalist twist and a love for Wicca. Even the New England town told the viewers that, hey, Scooby Doo is updated, it is in the 90s, and it is not taking itself too seriously.
The one regret is that there are no real masked villains, but even then, when you learn the truth, when the mystery is solved, the lack of a mask works for shock appeal.
It is a great entry into the world of Scooby Doo and one that set the stage for the franchise to follow.
