When Mystery, Inc. are guests of honor at the grand opening of the Coolsville Museum of Criminology, a masked villain shows up and creates havoc before stealing the costumes of the gang's most notorious villains: Black Knight Ghost, Pterodactyl Ghost and Tar Monster. Could it be that their nemesis, mad scientist Jonathan Jacobo has returned and is trying to recreate their deadliest enemies? Velma has a crush on the museum curator Patrick Wisely despite her fears of intimacy but why is he acting so suspicious? The Mystery Gang is hard pressed to succeed this time, since annoying television reporter Heather Jasper-Howe insists they are buffoons.Written by
All the actors did their own stunts, which pleased them all - in particular, Freddie Prinze, Jr., who was very keen to do the motorcycle joust. See more »
When Fred is on the ground after being knocked off the motorbike during the joust with the Black Knight, he is still wearing the red neck scarf. When Daphne lands on the ground next to him, the red scarf is further away on the ground. See more »

At the very end after all the credits roll, Scooby is shown in a creepy hall playing a "Scooby Doo" game on a Game Boy Advance. He then turns the game screen towards the camera, and says "Rook! Rodes!" (Look! Codes!), showing a cheat code for the game he was playing. See more »
The video version is re-edited slightly; the film caused controversy upon release when concern parents found its comical drug references to be a little too out-in-the-open and explicit for a film intended for children. The VHS and DVD releases excise some of this objectionable humor, and the theatrical version has never been re-released. See more »
This was a lot of fun, another great version of the old cartoon favorite. I really enjoy how much work is put into these adaptations of cartoons. Matthew Lillard as Shaggy is as always a favorite of mine, but, in this particular movie, Velma was just about as good. Plus as an added bonus, she actually looked hot for the first time. It was also good to see Seth Green in a very different role than in his previous works. Hats off to Sarah Michelle Gellar for another great performance as Daphne. I also enjoyed seeing Peter Boyle, who of course was in Young Frankenstein as the monster. He always works in these types of films. I give this film a 7 out of 10. See this at any price!
