One of the best Scooby Films

This is an excellent entry in the Scooby doo dtv series. My kid started watching it at 5 and we’ve seen it maybe 25 times in the two years since. Clever plot, swashbuckling adventure, great voice actors (Tim Conway! Kathy Najimi!) and ghost pirates! What more could you ask for? When the pirates all first appear it is kind of scary so you have to know your kid but I think it’s certainly fine for 7 and up. Don’t sleep on this one!

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.
