Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

This one has a good story and a male version of Velma who she digs. You gotta love a little Velma romance for a change. It's not the best direct to video Scooby movie but it's a lot of fun. Check it out.

Extended fight scene

Our two kids love Scooby, but we've been avoiding some of them (like the martial arts one) because our youngest doesn't react well to violence. Unfortunately, we had no idea this one had a long fight scene with a biker gang, including punching, kicking, and weapons. Avoid if you're looking for the usual comic monsters and limited/no violence by humans.

This title has:

Too much violence
