Scooby-Doo: Shaggy’s Showdown is one of the better animated movies I’ve seen from the series in quite a while, mainly because the last few didn’t do much for me especially the mash-up specials.

THE MOVIE — 3.75/5


Plot Synopsis: The Scooby Gang — Fred (FRANK WELKER), Daphne (GREY GRIFFIN), Velma (KATE MCCUCCI), Shaggy (MATTHEW LILLARD) and Scooby-Doo (WELKER) — are visiting Crazy Q Dude Ranch run and owned by Shaggy’s cousin twice removed, Tawny Rogers (MELISSA VILLASENOR). Of course, it can’t be just a relaxing vacation on the old ranch without a ghost and mystery. The ghost is rogue outlaw of the Old West, Dapper Jack who happens to be a descendent of the Rogers’ family whose lore lures in tourists but when old Jack seems to have come back to life wreaking havoc, businesses and people begin leaving; it’s up to the SG to uncover the truth.

Quick Hit Review: These direct-to-video Scooby-Doo movies have been okay or miss of late with the mash-ups (WWE and KISS) being misses in my book and hardly entertaining let alone humorous. So with Scooby-Doo: Shaggy’s Showdown I was pleasantly surprised that the writers went back to the roots that made these so much fun and I found myself actually laughing (out loud) numerous times and finding the mystery to be actually, well, mysterious. The voice acting is decent as always though I do miss Mindy Cohn’s Velma though Kate McCucci (who took over last year on LEGO Scooby-Doo: Haunted Hollywood) was at least an okay replacement while Matthew Lillard continues to do a great job as Shaggy…

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This release comes with an embossed slip cover. There are three bonus cartoons: The New Scooby-Doo Movies “The Ghostly Ghost Town”, Scooby-Doo: Where Are You? “Mine Your Own Business” and The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show “Scooby Ghosts West”.

There are also trailers for Scooby-Doo! & WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon, Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Season 1, Part 1 and LEGO Scooby-Doo.

 

VIDEO – 3.5/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5


Warner Home Video releases Scooby-Doo: Shaggy’s Showdown presented with an anamorphic 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track which sounds fine when it came to the dialogue while the sound effects were on the limited side.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, Scooby-Doo: Shaggy’s Showdown is one of the better animated movies I’ve seen from the series in quite a while, mainly because the last few didn’t do much for me especially the mash-up specials. The DVD released by Warner Home Video provides fine video and audio but, as usual, not much in the way of bonus features.
