Storyline

When Mystery, Inc. are guests of honor at the grand opening of the Coolsville Museum of Criminology, a masked villain shows up and creates havoc before stealing the costumes of the gang's most notorious villains: Black Knight Ghost, Pterodactyl Ghost and Tar Monster. Could it be that their nemesis, mad scientist Jonathan Jacobo has returned and is trying to recreate their deadliest foes? Velma has a crush on the hunk / museum curator Patrick Wisely but why is he acting so suspicious? The Mystery Gang is hard pressed to succeed this time, since pesky TV reporter Heather Jasper-Howe insists they are buffoons. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Trivia

This film makes absolutely no references to the previous film, as the filmmakers wanted a fresh start. The closest thing to a reference is a picture of Freddie Prinze Jr. from the first film, seen in the old clubhouse. See more »

Goofs

When the control panel is in the air and Scooby tries to catch it, the Pterodactyl ghost comes flying by, tries to catch it too, and crashes with the Tar monster, which was standing close to them. But when Scooby presses the button and the monsters are destroyed, the Tar monster is across the room, holding Daphne, and the Pterodactyl is no longer stuck on him. See more »

Funny and Comical Live Animation
28 March 2004 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

What makes this movie delightful is the ability of the direction and live actors to capture the essence of the animated action found in the original cartoon series. A number of the scenes appear to be lifted straight out of the cartoon series like where Scooby Doo and Shaggy are prowling around in a house and you find them carrying each other just as in the cartoon version. There are a number of such scenes that really hit the animated button and is a treat to actually see it transferred onto the large screen with real actors. Though not perfect, this movie has its obvious flaws where some scenes are so overboard that it detracts from the flow of the movie and in some places it drags abit. But overall, the tone, flavor of the movie, even the flairs of emotional drama and simple moral and juvenile dilemmas that the cast face about being a nerd, being cool, being loved add an enhanced quality to this movie targeted towards children (except for the obnoxious product placement at the beginning of the movie). Seven out of ten stars.
