After Fred experiences a nervous breakdown, the gang decides to take up an offer from Daphne's uncle to stay at his Florida resort. Soon after arrival, they realize they actually have a mystery on their hands.
According to the video box the four episodes on this tape were picked by "the fans". I have no idea how true this is or who "the fans" are but the episodes are all very good. Of course this means the tape is Scrappy-free.
If you've ever seen Scooby Doo you'll know the villains true identities are either very obvious or totally bizarre. I can't count the number of times I've wondered at the end of an episode: 'How can we guess the killer's identity when they were never in the show? 'Or better yet 'How did Fred & Velma know?'. This is true of at least one episode in this collection. While many may find this annoying I find knowing that Scooby & The Gang will keep me guessing has hooked me into each episode more then an overwhelming number of inferior slasher videos have.
The episodes in this collection include:
A Clue For Scooby Doo: The gang takes on a seaweed covered diver that is protecting something...
Hassle In The Castle: A mystery on the high seas.
Jeepers, It's The Creeper: A Frankenstein bank robbing clone.
The Backstage Rage: Someone's printing their own $20s at the puppet house.
The episodes are all quite good and include those classic Scooby Doo moments, such as Fred (who seems to be questioning his sexual identity) and Daphne (the bimbo?) heading off on their own for some private time, Scooby selling his soul for a lousy Scooby Snack (something has to be in those things 'cause Scoobs an addict?), and those wacky chase scenes.
Also in the tape are a number of shorts from the Cartoon Network that go behind the scenes of Scooby Doo. Some of these are O.K. others are classic! I loved how they dealt with the fact Fred wears a neckerchief.
Anyways, if you like Scooby this is a renter! I'll give it a 9.
