Scooby, would you battle Dracula, Frankenstein, and a werewolf for a Scooby snack, or two?
7 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

The gang heads on over to a place called Franken Castle. They encounter a mysterious gypsy, who warns them not to go to the castle. They also get a warning from Dracula as well. They refuse to heed the warnings, and decide to meddle like usual. Not only is Dracula present, but so is a werewolf, and a Frankenstein monster. Mr. Frankenstein died in the 1600's, and it turns out someone is after jewels. This is one of my favorite episodes! How can you not love an episode with so many classic monsters? Not only does this episode appeal to horror film buffs, but families of all ages; Shaggy and Scooby are at their absolute best here. There are many great gags that range from Scooby fooling around in a knight get-up, Scooby and Shaggy producing different formulas. Everything just clicks in this episode. Even a rather tiresome gag of Velma loosing her glasses is done perfectly. This episode also proved that classic monsters were still fairly relevant. The villains have rarely been cooler in this series, but that's because I'm biased. The castle itself is incredibly atmospheric, and makes for a perfect setting. My only minor complaint is that Frankenstein is running. It doesn't matter if he wasn't really Frankenstein, they should have had that slow saunter. This is a wicked episode, with three of the coolest monsters in history. It's one of the best episodes this series have ever produced.
