Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Above average old school Scooby Adventure May 16 2004
Format:DVD
This entry suffers from the presence of Scrappy. It was made in the mid-eighties when Scrappy was at the height (!) of his fame (?). He doesn't do much in this so it's not that bad.
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.

This was Scooby Doo's first movie. In it Shaggy's uncle dies and leaves his house to Shaggy. So has the movie opens, we meet Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy Doo (Scooby's nephew). Oncle there Shaggy learns that his uncle has left him the family jewels along with the house and a series a clues to find the next clue and a jewel.
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem of a mystery! July 1 2002
By Ahmed
Format:VHS Tape
I've watched this video countless numbers of times and yet I still love it. It doesn't have the whole cast-just Shaggy and Scooby but hey they're the funny ones. With the help of Scooby's nephew (Scrappy) this was one of the most interesting mysteries Scooby has ever had to solve.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Whole Box of Scooby Snacks For This One! Nov. 16 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This movie goes beyond any of Scooby's half hour episodes! The images and scenery are done well. The multiple dangers ("Ghosts! Guns! A Goony Girl!") keep us in suspense well. The situation comedy is placed well. Also, the clues and riddles that lead up to solving where the family treasure is creates great suspense. Surprise events are well placed. While they keep the ghost's hidden identity well disguised, a sharp observer can notice things that point to it. The Boo Brothers are delightful as the comical bumbling heroes who eventually rise to save the day. Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy show wonderful interaction. I have watched this every October for some time, and never got tired of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scooby's best flick........ April 17 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
How could any Scooby fan not like this movie. The action picks up within the first 5 minutes and never lets down. Some parts of this film actually are scary. Scooby and Shaggy encounter a headless horseman, a ghost wolf, caped skeleton, huge gorilla, and even a dead Confederate general (sporting the Confederate flag right there on hat). The scenery of the film is another characteristic that makes it great. It ranges from the haunted mansion to secret Civil War supply caves. The new movies that Warner Bros. are releasing are getting cheesier and cheesier. They need to write another script like this for a hit movie, and livin' "down south", you like this film even more.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great!
This was the first Scooby movie I ever saw, so naturally I have a soft spot for it. YES, it has Scrappy- but..... It's fantastic. Scrappy is toned down and not nearly as annoying. Read more
