Product Description

Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School (DVD)


Inspired by Hanna-Barbera's popular cartoon series, which premiered in 1969, Scooby-Doo stars in his second full-length film (made in 1988). Shaggy has accepted a job as a gym teacher at Miss Grimwood's Finishing School for Ghouls, a gothic girls' school that instructs the daughters of frightfully famous monsters such as Dracula, Werewolf, Mummy, and Frankenstein. Once Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy get over their spooky welcome, they settle into academic and athletic routines (like scarobic exercises) and enjoy an other-worldly relationship with the delightful Miss Grimwood and her gals. Shaggy prepares his students for a big volleyball tournament against the boys' military academy next door, a setup for all sorts of ghoulish gimmicks. And, of course, there's Back to School Night, where the girls' parents attend an enjoyable Who's Who event of monstrous proportions. Meanwhile, amid all the happy hauntings, Revolta, the Witch of the Web, is scheming to be "the most feared name in the monster world" and to make the girls' school "part of her evil team forever." In a final showdown, it takes a joint effort of the boys and girls to defeat the evil Revolta and her spider-bat flunkies. This predictable modern-day cartoon is a disappointing departure from Scooby's classic 1970s episodes, those campy detective romps full of lunacy and quirky humor and sprinkled with slapstick suspense. Scooby-Doo fans will also miss his wacky cohorts Freddy, Daphne, and Velma, as well as their invincible Mystery Machine. At least the original voices remain the same, namely Don Messick as Scooby and Casey Kasem as Shaggy. (Ages 5 to 10) --Lynn Gibson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Eesh! What is this supposed to be? Shaggy and Scooby's solo outings usually make for good movies. But Ghoul School comes nowhere near the surprisingly good Boo Brothers or Reluctant Werewolf and is so far behind modern Scooby Doo animation. It really is the cheapest, shoddiest Scooby effort I've ever seen.
There isn't even a mystery, thus explaining the lack of the Mystery Machine (an ugly red van is the replacement). So why on earth they bothered to make this a Scooby Doo movie is puzzling if they weren't deliberately exploiting a popular character.
It's just all wrong! Shaggy gets a job in an all-girl (actually Ghoul) school teaching Phys. Ed. I'm sorry but when did Shaggy become a qualified Gym Teacher? There's some pointless story involving a volleyball competition with a Military School next door that isn't good enough to distract from the bore and then after that some old hag called Revolta turns up and turns them all into zombies. Uh...yeah.
Shaggy obviously saves the day but by this point I had dozed off. It bored me to sleep!
The 1.33:1 full frame picture shows how cruddy the animation is and the sound is plain old mono. Aside from the usual 'how to draw' extras this DVD also features a trailer that cheekily uses lots of footage of modern Scooby animation and mixes it with Ghoul School to make it look new. I wasn't fooled.
Don't buy this. Rent it for the kids if there is really nothing else.

It is a very rare movie that does have the rest of the Scooby Doo gang (Fred, Daphne & Velma). This movie just has Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy Doo. If you have seen the series or any of most of the movies , it is always Fred, Daphne, and Velma that makes Shaggy and Scooby to do stuff, they don't want to do. I wish more epoides and movies like this. And if the gang has to be around, then I wish that Shaggy and Scooby boss around the others, and making them do things they don't want to do. As the movie opens, Shaggy (Casey Kasem), and Scooby-Doo and Scrappy Doo (both voiced by the late Don Messick), are on the road like for Ms. Grimwood's finshing school for girls, but they run find Calloy Miletary School, and the school they want is next doors, which turns to be Ms. Grimwood's school for ghouls. THey meet Ms. Grimwood (Glynis Johns), and meet the residents Sibella (Susan Blu), Else Frankteen (Pat Musick), Winnie the Werewolf (Marlyn Schreffler) Phantasma (Russell Taylor) and Tanis (Patty Maloney) who badly wants to the trophey in the annaul volley ball game against Colonol Calloway's (Ronnie Schell) boys, who look foward to beat the girls again, in which they do it every year.

Having seen the original series as a little girl, I was always concerned that Shaggy was too frequently picked on by other members of the group. He may have been more cautious, but the character seemed so much more nicer than any of the other "meddling kids".
Thus, despite the inclusion of Scrappy (the reason for the taking away two stars) I actually found a lot to like about the movie.
Apparently fusing the "Adams Family" (the ghoulish stuff) with the "Facts of Life" (the movie is also a comedy about an exclusive girls boarding school)this addition to the Scooby cannon is very creative. There are some slow moments in the screenplay, but they do not detract from the overall plot (which has some lessons about women's educational equality hidden throughout the film).
Shaggy, Scooby (and unfortunatley, Scrappy) head to a "ghouls finnishing school" where Shaggy will be working as a coach and instructor for the children of Hollywood's most famous and infamous classic monsters. Even though it is never revealed what educational training and professional background Shaggy has, it is clear throughout the film that he is serious about doing a good job in his new role and does not consider teaching at an all-girls (he intially believes the instituion is for humans)is any less important or serious.
Befitting his afforementioned non-critical nature, Shaggy is truly the most tolerant human in the scooby gang--neither the gender or monster status of his students (or their parents) matters as much as the fact they are happy and safe. Here we see the best side of a historically underutilized character, who clearly demonstrates leadership skills in his own right (when it would have been easier to pack up and leave the school at the first inkling of trouble).

My six-year-old son is a huge Scooby fan so I have seen a lot of these episodes and movies. He enjoys the "old" Scooby as well as the "What's New Scooby Doo" series, and I must say that I do too. That said, this awful movie was not just aimless and devoid of any of the usual fun and humor, it was downright painful to watch. This might have been more palatable as a single half-hour episode, but I doubt it. Twenty-five minutes into the movie, my husband asked me how much longer we had to subject ourselves to it. Forty-five minutes into this thing, my son muttered to himself "I wonder when it going to get to the scary part!" I don't think it ever quite got there. Avoid this movie like the plague, and go for something else. Even watching the better videos over and over ad nauseum would be better than viewing this again.
