Scooby Doo 2010 Year In Review

Better late than never, here’s a look back at the last year of Scooby. Yes, it’s been a pretty great year for Scooby and the gang, with a new TV series, two great Direct To DVD movies, and one so-so TV movie.

Let’s start with Scooby Doo: Abracadabra-Doo. Up untill this movie, I didn’t think the DTV movies had been all that great for awhile. I didn’t really like Samurai Sword or Goblin King that much. Needless to say I was quickly losing interest in them. Luckily, that all changed with Abracadabra-Doo, bringing Scooby back to what made it good in the first place while featuring some fantastic animation.

 

And then we got Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated. We heard about SD:MI all the way back when The Mystery Begins was announced, and while it took almost two years to actually air, it was well worth the wait. Yeah, some things need to be fixed{cough “Velma” cough}, but I still believe this is the best Scooby series in a long while. It’s still the same old Scooby, just with a overarching storyline. And finally, we get some sense of continuity in Scooby Doo.

 

And then there’s Scooby Doo! Camp Scare. I can only say the same things about Camp Scare as I can with Abracadabra-Doo. A classic Scooby mystery with great animation. And I think one of the cooler Scooby Doo Villians in a while.

 

And finally, we have Scooby Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster. I had high hopes for this one, but ultimately left disappointed. A predictable mystery and not enough Scooby. Oh well, here’s hoping Scooby 3 will be better!

 

2011 Predictions

What will happen to Scooby in 2011? Well, here’s some things I think we might see.

  • Scooby and Scrappy Doo on DVD: Warners seems to be releasing a Scooby series a year, and there’s not that many series left{Get A Clue doesn’t seem to be getting a release any time soon and I think they’ll stick to the volumes with Laff-A-Lympics}. I suspect we’ll see some type of release for Scrappy Doo in 2011, either through Warner’s “Warner Archives” service or through regular DVD.
  • Season 2 of SD:MI: Depending on how fast Cartoon Network airs the rest of the season, we could possibly see Season 2 of Mystery Incorporated by the fall.
  • Scooby 3: I predict that we’ll see a third live action TV movie, but it will drop even more in ratings than the second one did.

So yeah, it’s been a pretty good year. What was your favorite Scooby related thing from last year? Leave your thoughts below!

    Scooby-Doo! camp scare. Yes this was a great movie, better than Abracadabra-doo. I liked "Curse of the Lake Monster" ... it played better than "Mystery Begins". But he left much to be desired, there was more romance than mystery in the film, but the thing I disliked was: real ghost(monster). WE DON'T WANT REAL GHOSTS(MONSTERS)!

    I always found it odd that they used real ghosts straight off the bat even though TMB was supposed to be a prequel.

    I agree with you!
    I definitely liked Abracadabra Doo and Camp Scare! Back to classic Scooby!
    I didn't see the live-action movie, so really wouldn't know. But I was kind of turned off of it initially because of the brunette Fred. I mean, really, how hard is it to dye your hair?!
    Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated is pretty much my favorite. I love being able to look forward to brand new episodes of a Scooby-Doo show (and have it be different every time and the plotline continues to build!), although I do wish that Velma would have an attitude adjustment. Can't she TRY to get along with Scooby?

    I know you don't care for Curse of the Lake monster but I'm extremely critical of these movies (trust me I wanted to hate hate hate Mystery Begins but couldn't) but why don't you?

    The only issue I had with it, was the lack luster ending where once again Shaggy and Velma are broken up and Scooby's in love with Shaggy. Its wrong on so many levels. I've shipped Shaggy/Velma for 20 years (I'm 23 now) and I'm so sick of being crushed on every media with them breaking of Shaggy/Velma.
