For her birthday, Fred invites the whole gang to join their trip to Louisiana for Daphne's television show. They have many adventures but every ghost is just a villain in a costume. They soon meet Lena Dupree, who takes them to Moonscar Island in the hopes to encounter a real ghost.

At the beginning of the opening scene, the moat monster is revealed to be Mr. Beeman, and when he shouts, "I would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for that big dog and you meddling kids," in this overhead shot, Scooby's paws are bare. In the next shot, the Moat Monster's mask is suddenly over one of his paws. See more »
Ooh, stories like that always give me the heebie jeebies. Ooh! No wonder you became a reporter, that Moat Monster almost sliced you up like a pepperoni pizza, and then we wouldn't have Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake. Your very successful syndicated series on Americana, going on its second season, I might add? I never miss it!
Thanks, Chris. You know, the real reason I changed jobs was because the monsters and ghosts always turned out to be bad guys in a mask.
Got a little boring, eh?

Out of all the Scooby movies that have been made over the years (including the two live action ones), Zombie Island is by far the best; the characters are older, the plot line is much more sophisticated than previous attempts, is even a little scary, and by far LOOKS the best (even though it was a direct-to-video movie, it has the quality of a major motion picture, a big plus). Although Scooby and Shaggy haven't changed much, Fred, Velma, and especially Daphne were revamped - Velma is still calculating, but suspicious to a fault; Fred takes shotgun to Daphne as the leader, and "is in denial," about supernatural things; Daphne is no longer just the pretty face of the group, she's also intelligent, brave, completely independent, and the undisputed leader. Had Hanna Barbera and Warner Bros. actually kept up with this kind of material, Scooby would still be alive and kicking more so than it is; but, alas, they copped out for the "bad guy wearing a mask" routine, reverting the characters back to their original archetypes. Maybe someday someone will recreate the show using the characters and basic events, but for now, Zombie Island remains the absolute pinnacle of the Scooby World.
