Hop in the van for Mystery Inc.’s new, cool series of spooky capers. Like, it’s an all-new Scooby-Doo TV series for families who want their mysteries like Scooby-Doo and Shaggy want their pizza … spicy with extra sauce! Join the gang in Crystal Cove – the most haunted place on Earth – to solve creepy cases packed with fearsome spooks and frights, exciting chases, terrifying surprises and of course, Freddy’s ingenious traps. But the gang doesn’t fall for that ghost stuff anymore. They know there’s always a bad guy behind the monster suit, until they receive a cryptic clue from the mysterious Mr. E, who challenges them with their greatest mystery yet – to uncover the secret behind the curse of Crystal Cove! Get trapped with Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Freddy, Daphne and Velma in four action-packed adventures from the cool, new show that’s a lot of doggone fun!
I never thought that I would ever find a Scooby Doo series that I enjoyed as much as the original Scooby Doo, Where are You? But I have to say Scooby Doo! Mystery Inc is the closest that they have come to capturing the magic of the original show, but updating it with some modern twists to make it appeal to a new audience (romance!). So I am very happy to announce that Season 1 – Volume 1 of that I hope is a long running series is now available on DVD.
If you have not see it yet, the show’s animation style, while different from the original, is top notch. Probably the biggest issue people have with it is the injections of romantic elements. Personally I find them interesting and when I think about the original show it feels unusual that they never had any romantic elements. It makes too much sense for their not to be a romance between Fred and Daphne. What gives??. Weird.
I do have some reservations about them releasing these seasons in volumes. I would much prefer that they do a whole season at once, but it is only a minor annoyance for me, when a show is good, I take what I can get. So I say bring on Volume 2 already!
