Scooby-Doo Vol. 1

When I was little, one of the first franchises I was obsessed with was Scooby-Doo. I had a friend who was into it, and it was one of the shows that was on the most at his house so I watched a lot of Scooby on Cartoon Network and I borrowed his movies. It wasn’t long before I had a small collection of my own including a backpack and t-shirt. Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase was my favorite Scooby-Doo movie despite the Phantom Virus being really scary for me to watch at the time (I was 6).

Scooby and the gang are going to get a chance to play a video game their friend Eric created featuring themselves fighting monsters of mysteries past. When they get to the college, they’re told a virus from the game has been beamed out via laser into the real world.

They end up being beamed into the game along with the virus. In order to get out they need to collect the Scooby Snax on all 10 levels and avoid being hurt in-game because any danger they experience is real!
I LOVE this movie! I loved it then, and I love it now! I finally replaced my VHS tape with a DVD last year, and now it’s a part of my collection forever! It’s still my favorite Scooby-Doo movie even after all these years.

Who thought this movie was a good idea? Do they pull celebrity guest names out of a hat? Pair names with scenarios via a spin of the wheel?
Pulls names out of hat Let’s get Bobby Flay and Giada de Laurentiis to star as themselves!
Spins Wheel Bobby Flay will be Fred’s uncle. The gang will be visiting a restaurant/resort that has been in the family since the Revolutionary War and, and the resort will be haunted by the Red Ghost who scares all the guests off! Naturally, Scooby and the gang will investigate! The mystery will be easy to solve even for first time viewers. And the 77 minutes it takes to make it to the end will be endlessly long, meandering, and boring!

I wasn’t there, but I’m sure that’s how that meeting went down. They exceeded in making the most boring Scooby Doo movie I’ve watched so far.They sure don’t make them like they used to!

Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy accept a gym teaching position at the Grimwood’s School for Girls. At least that’s what they think until they meet their ghoul students! The girls get kidnapped by Revolta, Witch of the Web, and it’s up to the guys to save them before their parents find out!

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid. While I don’t love it quite as much as I did back then, it’s still enjoyable. Runs a little long though, and Revolta and the Grim Creeper might be too scary for little ones. I need to add this one to my collection so I don’t have to rent it anymore!


The Mystery Machine breaks down after a collision with a UFO, and the gang is now stranded in the middle of nowhere waiting for their van to be fixed. They get caught up in the town’s obsession with possible alien sightings, and like always, they can’t avoid a mystery. Shaggy and Scooby get a shot at love with nature photographer Crystal and her dog Amber. But not everything is as it seems with these two.

A story about love, loss, and the cost of greed. Ok. Fine. It’s Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders. It’s a love story with aliens. Mark Hamill plays a bad guy. It’s one of the best Direct-to-DVD Scooby-Doo movies, and it has a surprising twist at the end. It’s been many years since I last watched this, I’d forgotten all about it! I need to get the DVD. It’s too good not to own!
