Scoob and the gang are back for an all new mystery-solving adventure in Scoob! The movie is a blast for family members big and small, touching on lessons about the importance of friendship and giving us some serious nostalgia feels with classic cartoon characters that join in on all of the fun.
Friendship Saves The Day
One of the most heartwarming aspects of the movie is Shaggy and Scoob’s friendship. We get to see the origins of their relationship and how quickly they bond and grow to become best friends. From hanging out and bowling, to making bizzare foods to eat together – they are a match made in heaven. But all of that fun doesn’t come without some important lessons too. As they and the gang go on the adventure of their lives to save the world, things begin to change. And both Scoob and Shaggy must learn that lifelong friendships don’t come without their fair share of challenges, growth, and sacrifice.
Revisit Your Favorite Hanna-Barbera Characters
One of the biggest delights about the movie is how many characters we get to see revived in 3D from classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons we grew up with. And if you’re not familiar with Hanna-Barbera, they were a studio founded by the creators of Tom and Jerry and other animation legends. Hanna-Barbera has put out iconic gems like Scooby Doo of course, The Flintstones, and Yogi Bear, all the way up to early seasons of Johnny Bravo and The Powerpuff Girls. Chances are that if you watched TV from the 1950’s through the early 2000s, you’ve come across a ton of their cartoons.
The makers of Scoob! paid homage to the classic Scooby Doo cartoons, most excitingly in the rendering of the the iconic Scooby Doo chasing intro to the tune of “Scooby Dooby Doo Where are You.” And there are little details in the animation reminiscent of the old style too, which has a uniquely fun way of taking us back in time.
Other classic characters we meet include the villain Dick Dastardly, voiced by the talented Jason Isaacs, and his companion Muttley, who make a blast from the past from the Wacky Races cartoons. Muttley still has the same hyena-like laugh we know and love, while Dick Dastardly’s flying ship is all too reminiscent of his purple pointy race car from the show.
Blue Falcon and Dynomutt are some of the key characters we meet in Scoob!. And with Mark Wahlberg doing the voice of the cocky Blue Falcon and Ken Jeong playing the sarcastic Dynomutt, these two are another dynamic duo that’s a force to be reckoned with.
Captain Caveman also makes an appearance, and with the hilarious Tracy Morgan doing his voice in Scoob! he makes it even more fun to watch.
