The gang goes on a trip to check on Velma's younger sister, Madelyn. She's been studying stage magic at the Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy, where apparently there have been sightings of a giant griffin. The gang decides to investigate.
Velma says that according to "Old Newport Cove by Henry Metcalf", the Rocky Harbor Inn has been vacant since 1780. In the pre-title sequence the Inn has a British Union Flag (adopted in 1801) and French Tricolour (adopted in 1794) outside. See more »
Between great animation and excellent plot, Gourmet Ghost is one of the all-time greats
Gourmet Ghost is just behind Camp Scare as the best Scooby Doo movies of all time, and has a real argument for being a 10 star movie. The plot is one of the best, with elements that are certainly solvable but not obvious. There were plenty of clues and it was put together well, in a way that makes the ending both a genuinely surprising twist and also fits everything together perfectly. The animation is gorgeous and adds to many of the scenes. The humor is generally very funny, though I agree with many that the Shh's were overdone and not funny after the first couple. The modernization and themes considered were also a cut above most of the movies - how technology advances everything (in this case cooking) but is also fundamentally manipulable, and minor historical and other notes. It doesn't do anything too crazy (though the ending is a bit unique), but it does everything well and is a complete joy to watch.
