A long term fan of Scooby-Doo, Tim Curry considers "Dreadful darkness, hear my cry. Bring back one who cannot die" to be his favorite line through his career as he believes this was an inside joke referring to Scooby-Doo (who entered the scene after the line was said). See more »
There is nothing in the dialogue or plot or storyline to so much as indicate that Sarah Ravencroft actually had children before she was banished into her spellbook if she had any children they would have been banished into the spellbook with Sarah or put to death. So Ben should not even exist. See more »

Scooby, Shaggey and the gang get invited to Oakhaven by a famous horror writer. This town is famous for having the ghost of an old witch who was burnt at the stake years earlier. The gang ends up solving this mystery quiet easily but then a bigger case pops up. SCOOBY-DOO AND THE WITCH'S GHOST isn't a complete success but I think fans of the dog will find enough in it to make it worth viewing. What I enjoyed most about this film is the animation. That's not something I usually say but I thought the look of the film was absolutely the best thing going for it. This is especially true during the opening scenes when we first get to Oakhaven. The fall is in full bloom and I really loved how the orange and yellows colors are used so well. The actual mystery here isn't the greatest but I thought it was interesting enough to keep the viewer entertained in what was going on. The design of the witch was effective enough as were the other monsters that popped up at times. The comedy in the film isn't the best I've seen but there were a few good moments including a sequence where Scooby and Shaggy get to eat all they want in a restaurant.
