Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

True to form, this entertaining and zany installment of the popular Scooby-Doo franchise features the madcap teen gang working through lots of wacky moments while solving mysteries. While they now use tablets, smartphones, and wi-fi for their sleuthing, they still rely on classic show plot twists that feature ghosts, monsters, and clue searching. Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?'s celebrity-driven premise also comes from the original series, Scooby-Doo Where Are You? (1969-1970) which occasionally featured famous folks of the time, including Davy Jones, Sonny and Cher, and even Batman and Robin.

But while older generations of Scooby fans will enjoy the ironic side-references to the show's common cliches, as well as nods to other classic Hanna-Barbera series, like Speed Buggy, a new generation will enjoy this updated installment's roster of contemporary celebrities voicing the animated versions of themselves. The original teen cast members (who, despite being over 50 years old, haven't aged a bit) are still fun and relatable, even if some of their wit is still stuck in the early ‘70s. Old fan or new, chances are you'll have a good time tuning in.
