With a good mystery, great looking animation, and some funny bits, This is the best animated Scooby movie in recent years.

As a child, I loved Scooby Doo, and now I've gotten my 2 year old daughter into it and now she requests it by name with her eyes glued to the television.
Nova
I endured "Zombie Island," "The Witch's Ghost," and "Alien Invaders" - but I don't watch them often because they don't feel like Scooby-Doo.

Nice to see Scooby-Doo alive and well in this 2010 new movie. The major change is that Matthew Lillard from the Scooby live action movies, fills in as the voice of Shaggy. I always thought Matthew was the best of the characters of those somewhat bizarre movies, and here, he's more than adequate but no Casey Kasem.

The mystery: a flying half-lion, half-bird monster terrorizes a school for magicians where Velma's sister, who's got a crush on the Shagmeister, elicits the gang's help. A little tension develops between Daphne and Fred over his goo-goo eyes for Whirlen Merlin the Magician's assistant.

It has all the traditional Scooby trappings- with lots of potential suspects, lots of like creepy, 'reepy' settings- a giant castle, a dark isolated forest, an island haunted by another monster, trap doors, towers, colorful artwork, Scooby and Shaggy silliness, a few tunes, and a mystery to solve. We prefer solvable mysteries versus supernatural ones.

A cute cartoon plays during the opening credits of the feature cartoon (a novel idea) with a bouncy song that got the kiddoes dancing.

Our children, ages 3 & 6, loved it; although, we fast fowarded for the younger one, the extra spooky scenes on the 'ghostly' island, but overall the writers resolve it nicely for kids' sensiblities. As adults, growing up with SD, we liked it a lot for what it is. This one rates somewhere between "Chillout Scooby and Where's my Mummy?". 4-1/2*.

Scooby and those meddling kids are back on the case once again in this frightfully fun animated adventure from Warner Home Video.

Scooby and the gang take a trip to check up on Velma's younger sister, Madelyn, who's studying magic at a special school for stage magicans. Apperently the school is being haunted by a griffin, a legendary creatre that's half lion, half eagle. Of course, as the mystery unfolds at Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy, not all is what it seems.

First off, let's talk animation. Instead of continuing using the animation from What's New Scooby Doo, WB decided to go with a new look, and quite simply, the animation is fantastic. It has the same feel as the early Scooby movies{Scooby Doo on Zombie Island, Scooby Doo and the Witch's Ghost} with a "retro" twist to it. This is the best looking Scooby movie since Scooby Doo and the Cyber Chase.

Speaking of retro, Abracadabra-Doo takes Scooby back to basics here, right down to the mystery, and it works really well. The gang are dressed in their classic outfits., and their personalities are more in tune with Scooby Doo: Where Are You{though, not completely. For example, Fred's not a complete jerk like he was early on}.

Of course, no Scooby Doo movie would be complete without it's humor. Some of which involves Madelyn's crush on Shaggy. But I think the funniest parts in the movie come from the Mystery Machine's new "G.P.S" system. At one point in the movie, G,P,S proceeds to call Fred "Scarf Boy". Just think Robi the Robot from Shaggy and Scooby Doo: Get A Clue!, except funnier.

I had alot of fun watching Abracadabra-Doo. With a good mystery, great looking animation, and some funny bits, This is the best animated Scooby movie in recent years. I would definitely recommend this to Scooby fans. 4/5.

I've always been a fan of Scooby-Doo going back to the originals when I was a kid. This latest direct to video movie is one of the better efforts.
It's a great story. The Scooby gang comes to the aid of Velma's sister at her magic school, with a bit of a Harry Potter vibe. They are being terrorized by a giant Griffin which is one of the better monsters they have faced for some time. There is lot of good action and creepy locations in the manner of the best Scooby-Doo. There are some good humorous moments too, without stooping to the ridiculous sight gags and role playing bits from the earlier shows. Except for musical interludes, this movie plays the mystery pretty straight.

I like the interpersonal action going on in this movie. Fred and Daphne at first are close and clingy until Fred sets eyes on the magician's assistant. Daphne, now jealous, tries a bit of ballet to try to improve her grace and not be the "danger prone" one. Velma's sister has a crush on Shaggy who actually responds to her if in a limited way.

Matthew Lillard, who played Shaggy in the two live action movies (loved the first, liked the second) takes over for Casey Kasem as the voice of Shaggy. Though Kasem IS Shaggy, in the last few movies, his age came through in his voice work, making teen-age (early adult?) Shaggy sound kinda like grandpa. Lillard does a fine job here and would be a worthy successor to Kasem.

I'm a bit conflicted by the new animators. At times I thought it was great, while at times it looked to be too stylized. The Scooby gang seemed a bit too much of a representation of the characters instead of the kids we're familiar with. Unlike another reviewer, I preferred the "What's New'" animation to the earlier movies like the "Witches Ghost" era.

This movie is one of the best Scooby movies to come along in quite some time... and I think alot of that has to do with a great story. The writers seemed to get back to the basics - back to what makes a great Scooby story: not overly obvious, not overly fantastic, a nice blend of humor, rooted in reality, but leaving you with a hint of a mysterious and supernatural vibe. This is very much UNlike the last two movies, which were way too "fantasy". It also felt like they had a firm grasp on the fact that their audience varies from 3 to 80 in age, and they needed to be sensitive to the way they blended "too childish" with "too adult".

The entire cast does a great job, and I personally really like Matthew Lillard as Shaggy. No, he's not Casey Kasem... but to me, I think that's the point... that's why I like him. With Casey passing the torch, I wouldn't want someone to come along and try to pretend he's Casey Kasem and try to duplicate him in a way that's completely transparent. Because frankly, I don't think that's possible. Instead, I want someone to bring themselves to the role, while still maintaining character integrity. And to me, Matthew does this beautifully. Casey Kasem should be proud of his successor, and I look forward to seeing Matthew grow more into the role as time goes on.

All in all, this movie represents exactly what I want a Scooby Doo movie to be. I hope they stick to the formula they've developed here, because it works perfectly.
