Fred, why do ghosts and monsters and stuff turn up wherever we go? Is it something about us?
No, this happens to everyone. It would be too much of a coincidence if this only happened to us, so logically, everyone must run into ghosts and monsters all the time.
Sure! It's simple math. They must be everywhere.

All the Scooby Doo films are at least watchable, Witch's Ghost, Zombie Island, Goblin King and Big Top Scooby Doo being my favourites and Monster of Mexico faring the least. Scooby Doo! Stage Fright will not disappoint any fan of Scooby Doo. The final solution has neat twists and is very unexpected but it also a little rushed and maybe with too much going on, and Daphne and Grey DeLisle voicing her did at times come across as too ditsy. However the animation is great, very detailed backgrounds and atmospheric colours that are reminiscent of classic Scooby Doo as well as modern. The music is appropriately spooky and catchy with a terrifically funky opening theme. The writing is a delight in Scooby Doo! Stage Fright, the humour is very reminiscent of classic Scooby Doo, goofy but also very endearing too. The rest of the writing is to the point and doesn't try to be too complicated- it may seem confusing looking up/reading the plot, when watching the film though confusing it is not- or too simplistic. The story is diverting, with some action that is the very meaning of exhilarating and a mystery that while a bit "here there, done that" (to be honest that's not uncommon for Scooby) that is creepy, charmingly goofy and keep-you-guessing-quality throughout. From the comedy, the mystery elements, characterisations and the sound effects Scooby Doo! Stage Fright has that classic Scooby Doo feel in terms of writing and story except with more twists and turns, and for me that was part of the film's appeal. The Fred/Daphne subplot does not slow things down, in fact it does bring some dimension to the story, while Scooby and Shaggy's friendship is as charming as ever. The characters are neatly set up, are relevant to the story and fit nicely into it, Shaggy and Scooby are definitely the best characters but Velma is much more likable than she was in some of the previous outings. The voice cast is spot on (especially from Matthew Lillard, who is note-perfect as Shaggy, he had big shoes to fill and has done so admirably), with only DeLisle disappointing slightly, John O'Hurley is a little underutilised as well. Overall, very entertaining and Scooby fans will find much to enjoy here.
