Scooby-Doo - Meets the Boo Brothers [Import]
When Shaggy inherits an old Southern estate from an uncle, he and his sleuthing hounds take a road trip. But they don't even make it to the mansion before the haunting starts. Amid headless horsemen, walking skeletons, and a menacing butler, Scooby, Scrappy, and Shaggy get majorly spooked. The three Stooge-like ghosts they hire to help them know more about slapstick than ghostbusting and, to make matters worse, neighbor Sadie Mae has the hots for Shaggy while her gun-toting brother Billy Bob is hot to eliminate him. The local sheriff is no help--although an escaped gorilla is--and the jewels that Scrappy uncovers keep disappearing. This new 91-minute movie fuses together episodes from 1983 of the long-running cartoon, which features Casey "Mr. Countdown" Kasem doing the honors as Shaggy. It's classic Scooby-Doo: bumbling good versus slightly-less-bumbling evil with a lot of laughs for viewers 3 and up. --Kimberly Heinrichs

The story is about Shaggy (minus the rest of Mystery Inc.) being left a spooky mansion house in his uncles will. Conveniently said mansion is in the middle of a creepy swampland in the Deep South. The kind of place where there are always eyes watching from the trees.
As soon as he arrives, Shaggy has to deal with an annoying southern stereotype sheriff, a weirdo butler who wants to get his hands on the old uncle's hidden treasure, hickabilly neighbors and the ghost of his uncle telling to leave (then why did he give him the house?). There is also an escaped ape on the loose but even though only Scooby sees him (Shaggy doesn't believe it) he's just a big, cuddly monkey who wants to play.
The Boo Brothers are basically ghost versions of the Three Stooges. They're listed in the phone book as being experts in the busting of ghosts. This isn't a job they do well though, so Shaggy's payment at the end is a bit too generous.
There are some laughs to be had and the plot is mildly interesting but too many running jokes are just plain bad. The hillbilly neighbor joke becomes very boring and could have been done without. The animation is a bit dated, though it has enough modern touches (lens flares in car lights) to distract you from it. And I like the dark, decaying atmosphere of the swampland. The color pallet is mostly made up of dark blues and purples (the story takes place all in one night) and the backgrounds are not as generic as the earlier, cheaper TV shows.Read more ›
The city's police officer finds the family jewels nothing but a bunch of "hooey." But it's the house it haunted. So Scrappy looks in a telphone book and finds the Boo Brothers. Which are three ghosts. Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy Doo can't leave because Shaggy's truck shunk . And they can't get soembody to get it out of the mud until the next morning.
Some scenes may scare little kids. Scrappy figures out the clues. The movie turns into Romeo and Juliet. The next door girl is in love with Shaggy while her brother Billy Bob and other memembers hate Shaggy. So there was a family feud going on between Shaggy's uncle's family and the next door neighbors. So how will Shaggy will stand all this, a next door girl, her brother, ghosts and a series of clues?
Shaggy and Scooby make this really funny with their usual jokes and the Boo brothers add great excitement to the plot of the story. This video is really worth it and has even better pranks mainly due to the way Shaggy reacts when the boy-chasing girl comes to sight. It's one of the best Scooby Doo movies ever! All the unusual incidents are linked to the plot and if you're a Scooby fan-you'll love this I mean it even has a party for ghouls and ghosts (think of how Scooby &Shaggy would react). If you like this, make sure you don't but "Ghoul school". It's yet another edition with only Scooby and Shaggy in it but it's not as funny. They're not they're usual "scared freak" characters!
