First Footage From Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

BeCool ScoobyDoo_7

The first footage from Be Cool, Scooby-Doo has been revealed via two international Boomerang promos. While these two promos don’t show us much, there is also this pitch reel on Vimeo, which gives us a better feel for the show.

I’m still not a fan of the animation. But if the pitch reel is any indication, I think the writing will more than make up for the terrible animation.

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


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.

With Zombie Island and Witch’s Ghost being produced so closely together, they share a darker tone than most Scooby-Doo movies. The first half is your typical Scooby-Doo mystery, but the second half is basically a horror movie. Not that the first half is bad or anything, but it’s a little predictable. The movie really picks up when the real witch’s ghost shows up. Tim Curry as Ben Ravencroft makes for a great villain. It’s much scarier fare than the usual Scooby-Doo fare. Of course, the humor inserted throughout helps lighten the mood. It all blends together really well.

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


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.
