Not appropriate according to current standards

Some violent weapons. Sexually suggestive when the female character pulls Shaggy into the hay - sparked a conversation about consent.

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

For kids who love simple mysteries that are slightly more sophisticated than Blue's Clues and Dora the Explorer, Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers is a fine choice. And who doesn't love a talking dog whose every word begins with the letter R? Velma is generally seen as the brains in the Scooby-Doo group, and her absence in this movie puts Scrappy firmly in the lead. Anyway, the appeal of Scooby and friends probably resides in children's enjoyment of finding themselves slightly ahead of the characters, identifying threats before the characters can recognize them, and figuring out plot twists before they occur to the heroes. A story without Velma figuring all this out offers plenty such opportunity for young grade-schoolers to do so.

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.
