Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost: A Retrospective: Part 2

WitchsGhost

I remember when Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost came out. This was pretty early on in my Scooby fandom. It wasn’t the first Scooby thing I saw obviously, but it was one of the earliest. Actually, I admit I didn’t like this movie when it came out. I preferred more classic Scooby back then. But like Zombie Island, it has grown on me over the years. Is it as good as Zombie Island? Well, I think one half of Witch’s Ghost is good, the other half is much, much better.

Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost: A Retrospective: Part 1

witchs_ghost

Has it really been 15 years already?

Scooby-Doo and the gang visit Oakhaven, Massachusetts to seek strange goings on involving a mysterious horror novelist and his ancestor who is rumored be a witch.

I’m not 100% positive, but given the release date of this movie, this might well have been my first exposure to Scooby animation. Which might actually explain my undying love for this movie and The Hex Girls. I’m not going to bury the lead here, still to this day, this is by far my absolute favorite Scooby movie. If that’s all you want to know, you can stop reading now.

The Top 10 Scooby Movies

With it being the 45th anniversary of Scooby today, I’d thought I’d share my top ten Scooby movies. If you want to see my Top 5 Scooby series, check out this week’s Question of the Week.

10. Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed

Top10_10
Monsters Unleashed makes the Top 10 not because it’s the best of the franchise, but because it’s nice to see the classic villains in live action. Plus there’s Mathew Lillard’s spot-on performance as Shaggy.

Retro Review: Scooby-Doo & The Cyber Chase{Playstation}

Released almost 13 years ago, I have fond memories of playing this for hours on end…I also have not so fond memories of anger and frustration from playing this for hours on end.

CyberChase_ps1

For what it was and for what it’s worth, for the past thirteen years I have consistently polished and placed this game on a pedestal and called it the best Scooby-Doo console game we’ve ever gotten. And in many ways, I still stand by that sentiment. From a very unfair and slanted view, it could be called one of the worst, mostly because it has no mystery solving elements.
But, again, based on what it is, that wouldn’t have made sense so it gets a pass.

I think it’s safe to say I loved this movie. I think my biggest peeve with the previous few movies is that they were not spooky enough{which is how I like my Scooby}. Frankencreepy, with it’s Frankenstien-inspired plot, makes up for that. The gang being “cursed” was fun. Fred being obsessed with the Mystery Machine blowing up got old real fast, but I liked that the explosion got worse each time. Now there has been some controversy over Daphne getting fat. The whole thing is overblown in my opinion. In fact, Fred says something along the lines of he doesn’t care what Daphne looks like. So wouldn’t that be sending a positive message that it doesn’t matter what you look like? I certainly don’t think it was fat shaming.
