Scooby and Shaggy tell an Arabic Caliph two stories, the first about Aliyah-din, a young girl aided by two genies played Yogi and Boo-Boo and the second about Sinbad the Sailor played by Magilla Gorilla.
It's another variation of the classic Scooby-Doo plot device with the gang investigating a snow creature, but this time, it's on Mount Everest with the Abominable Snowman. Shaggy and Scooby-Doo wind up on the wrong flight and wind up going to India, ruining the Mystery Inc. gang's vacation in Paris. They learn about the Snowman and are really afraid, of course. Then it becomes a huge mystery to solve when Fred, Daphne and Velma try to find Scooby and Shaggy, as well as the snow creature. Written by
Coming from a biased Scooby Doo fan, I really liked this movie
I don't think the film was perfect, but I myself found it very worthwhile to watch. The plot is very simple and fun, and I thought the animation was very, very good, very colourful and fluid. Nice to see Paris, which is just an amazing city, I strongly recommend you go if you haven't already. The soundtrack was very nice too, and as usual the voice talents were excellent. Casey Kasem never fails to bring a smile to my face as Shaggy, I know I use this phrase a lot, but I find him very entertaining. Other voice actors that do that for me too are people like Jodi Benson, Tim Curry, Tony Jay and Frank Welker. Speaking of Welker, I much prefer Don Messick as Scooby, but Welker wasn't at all bad, though I do think he was better as Fred. Mindy Cohn and Grey DeLisle are fine too, and Daphne looks really pretty here, well she's always been pretty. In supporting roles, Rene Auberjoinis and Alfred Molina are very entertaining. Chill Out Scooby Doo does have its flaws though. Like What's New Scooby Doo? with the absence of the sound effects, it just lacked that Hanna Barbera touch. As much as I liked the plot, I do think the perpetrator got obvious a bit too early, but that's just an inkling that I have. My main problem was that I thought I noticed a contradiction. Daphne says in one scene "a yeti, what's a yeti?" and I found it odd at the time. Then it occurred to me, then again I could be wrong, that there was a Scooby Doo Where Are You episode when the gang chase a snow ghost, referred to by a supporting character as a yeti. Overall, a very entertaining Scooby Doo film, not the best, but a definite improvement on the appalling Shaggy and Scooby Doo Get a Clue. 7/10 Bethany Cox.
