Excellent, brilliant, delightful
24 April 2012 | by renuka-ckgfSee all my reviews

Probably giving in to the demands of millions of other die-hard Scooby Doo fans like myself, this series has been renewed for another season, which is a pleasant surprise. It is an absolute delight to see the beloved characters from my favorite childhood series, having undergone radical character development.

This episode reestablishes Scooby Doo as one of the longest running series ever. It has all the elements of a great story, and continues in the darker vein of the series. I LOVED this episode (the fact that I capitalized 'loved' is evidence). Just loved it, and everything about it. That's all.

It is safe to say that the series has 'grown up' with his fans of the previous decades, and Scooby Doo and the gang have grown up too. This, and the darker mood of the series, make it easier for adults to enjoy watching it.
