While this is not necessarily a post sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures I did receive some product plus free digital access to the movie. However, I had just purchased the movie an hour prior to the email letting me know that I had the movie. So I gave that one to my sister. We’ve been very excited to see SCOOB. Andy has seen the commercials over and over and he could not wait for the movie. I do not think that he’s seen much about Scooby Doo. Not like me, I grew up watching Scooby Doo and all the cartoons that are mentioned in the movie. There were so many fun Easter Eggs in the movie. I know that I may have missed some or not known exactly why they were Easter Eggs but I caught many of them. Since Scooby Doo was produced by Hanna-Barbera there were many Easter Eggs from other Hanna-Barbera cartoons and I loved seeing that.
Scoob starts off telling the story of how Mystery, Inc formed, how Scooby and Shaggy became fast friends and their first cases. The story is set in modern times. I enjoyed how the move poked fun at things like the Mystery Machine being out of place. We even get an updated Blue Falcon played hilariously by Mark Walhberg. I was constantly looking on IMDB to check the cast list. Will Forte was teenage Shaggy and Frank Welker was Scooby. Roles made famous by Casey Kasem and Don Messick. Both of these now deceased actors did get Easter Eggs in the movie.
The movie was silly and funny and I hope that it did well. There were a ton of people tweeting about it including many celebrities. It felt like many people were watching. We received a Scooby Doo stuffed animal, seen above and a Mystery Machine Popcorn holder. We did not use that because we had a large dinner of Chinese food from our favorite Chinese restaurant.
