I am a die-hard fan of Scooby Doo, having grown up with the original, so I have been hesitant to watch any of the new stuff, but....after having seen Camp Scare bc of my kids, I have to say that I loved it! They maintained the flavor of the original, with the music, the humor, and the characters. It's just an updated version. The story was great too. Writing done well, tight plot, suspenseful.
As for the swimsuits on Daphne and Velma, I have to say that i thought they were tasteful. Since we hardly ever saw the gang in clothing other than what they always wore, it was refreshing to see them in something different. And I loved that they gave Velma some curves. I always hated that they drew her as so stocky and shapeless. Im guessing that they wanted us to focus on her brains, and to draw a character more true to life, which is fine, but I always felt like she kinda got shortchanged.
I did kinda take issue with making Daphne somewhat of an airhead: squealing with delight that someone liked Velma while totally missing the insult that the ranger gave her. Also, putting her in Daisy Dukes was a bit much: regular shorts would have been fine, and that's just because we had already seen some skin when she wore the bikini. Really? Was it necessary to see more? Other than that, i thought she was a kick- ass chick: she sacrificed her scuba tank to get rid of the Fishman while risking drowning and she was a lot smarter than in older series.
I got a kick out of finding out that Mark Hamill did the voices of Deacon, Babyface Boretti, and the old storekeeper. Cracked me up! I had no idea he was that talented in voiceovers.
I recommend this for Scooby fans all over. The true spirit of Scooby Doo is maintained, and you will enjoy it a lot!!
