What parents need to know

Educational value

This animated feature is intended to entertain, not educate.

Positive messages

As an animated feature that is little more than a product tie-in for the WWE, there isn't much in the way of positive messages.

Positive role models

None of the characters -- either from Scooby-Doo or the WWE -- break from their cartoonish personas to emerge as positive role models.

Violence & scariness

Frequent cartoonish violence involving wrestling. Demonic and nightmarish imagery throughout the movie.

Sexy stuff

Not applicable

This animated venture seems to be little more than a product tie-in for WWE, their wrestler "brands," and the Wrestlemania pay-per-view event.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery is a 2014 animated feature that feels like little more than a giant infomercial for the WWE entertainment sports franchise. The Wrestlemania pay-per-view event, many of the WWE character "brands," and the action in the ring, feature prominently throughout the film, filtered through the prism of the typical Scooby-Doo mystery formula of bad guys dressed as monsters, meddling kids, and Shaggy and Scoob ever on the lookout for snacks. There is also, predictably enough, frequent wrestling-style violence, both in and out of the ring. Some of the demonic and nightmarish images make this film a bit much for younger viewers. While this movie might be enjoyable for wrestling fans for all ages, for everyone else -- especially those who are more fans of Scooby-Doo and the gang -- this isn't one of the better Scooby-Doo mysteries out there.

What's the story?

After winning a video game, Shaggy and Scooby (Frank Welker) win tickets to Wrestlemania, held in WWE City. When they arrive along with Fred, Daphne (Grey DeLisle), and Velma (Mindy Cohn), they learn of a mysterious Ghost Bear that is wreaking havoc throughout WWE City. With the help of wrestlers like John Cena, Scooby and the gang use their detective skills to find the Ghost Bear's lair, replete with hypnosis books, computer equipment, and plans to destroy the WWE on the night of Wrestlemania. It's up to Scooby and the gang to put a stop to this and to rescue Wrestlemania before it's too late.

Is it any good?


This movie might be enjoyable for fans of pro wrestling and the characters of the WWE, but for Scooby fans, this is definitely not the best in the franchise. SCOOBY-DOO! WRESTLEMANIA MYSTERY is little more than one giant product tie-in for WWE, their character "brands," and their Wrestlemania pay-per-view event. As it turns out, Scooby-Doo and the gang are huge pro wrestling fans (who knew?), and frequently discuss how much they love Wrestlemania and performers like John Cena. In terms of the actual writing, the storyline is as formulaic as they come -- even for a Scooby-Doo mystery -- and all the charm of the old cartoon is lost as these characters are a little too self-aware; for instance, Daphne holds two matching green scarves in front of Velma and asks her which one she should wear when she sees John Cena. Families who aren't big wrestling fans are better off tracking down the original series.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the WWE and Scooby-Doo franchises. Why do you think the WWE would want to have a cartoon centered around their events and performers?

  • How is this cartoon similar to and different from other Scooby-Doo mysteries?

  • How did the violence in the action sequences mirror the action commonly seen in pro wrestling?
