[after Scooby-Doo found Sarah Ravencroft's journal]
Ben, that doesn't look like a journal at all.

Because it isn't, Velma. It's a spell book! You see, Sarah wasn't a Wiccan, she was indeed a witch! And since Sarah's blood runs through my veins, I guess that makes me a warlock! The Wiccans imprisoned Sarah in her own spell book, and you helped me find it.

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.
