I don't have a problem with this movie. True it is not like the classic Scooby-Doo cartoons but it does include all the characters unlike the Boo Brothers. The only thing that I really did not like about this movie and Zombie Island is that is is kind of scary for very young children. My three year-old son is a big fan of Scooby-Doo and when he sees this movie and Zombie Island he keeps repeating the phrase "monsters aren't real they're just pretend". So it is a little bit scary but like all the others they have good endings and are lots of fun.

Released in 1999, SCOOBY-DOO! AND THE WITCH’S GHOST is the second in the “feature length” (sixty-seven minutes) cartoons created specifically for the home market. This particular outing has the gang in small-town New England, where the ghost of Sarah Ravenscroft, a legendary witch, has been sighted. The gang—especially Velma—works with Sarah’s descendent Ben (voiced by no less than Tim Curry) to debunk the ghost and to find Sarah’s diary, which Ben says will prove she was not a witch but a Wiccan healer who was wrongfully persecuted by the town. Along the way the gang meets rock-and-rollers The Hex Girls, a trio scheduled to play at the harvest festival and who become unwillingly involved in the mystery.

Nobody would describe the Scooby-Doo series as high art, but it is well imagined. The characters are updates on the original 1960s Saturday morning cartoon characters, the animation is very good, and the story is interesting—and as in many of the “feature length” releases there really are some unexpected supernatural forces at work, which gives everything an added twist. But I did have a bit of a problem with one particular plot point, in which the story (a) seems to describe Wiccans as a specific race, which they are not; and (b) seems to define Wiccans as benign healers of an older age, which they were not; and (c) last but not least states that Wiccans and witches are not the same, which is a highly contentious issue that pretty much depends on who you ask.

Ultimately, this is one of the few Scooby-Doo flicks that I would say parents need to preview before allowing it to be seen by your children. It’s not that it is unusually scary, but the Wiccan issue may be something parents would prefer to avoid—or at least postpone until a later date.

My four year old son loves this movie. It is both engaging and entertaining. He sings along with the songs from the movie. As noted in other reviews, this movie does touch upon the religion of Wicca. As a practicing Wiccan Priestess, I find it refreshing for a movie to approach the faith as a positive thing. However, there are many inaccuracies in the movie regarding the religion. Many websites exist to find accurate information if you should choose to research the topic before purchasing or allowing your child to watch this movie. Wicca is a life-affirming, nature-worshiping and peace-loving faith -- parents worried by the presence of religion in a mainstream child's movie need not fear that their child will be affected by the references to this particular religion. The "spells" cast by Thorn (the Wiccan in the movie) is merely her mixing up an herbal drink to soothe her sore throat. The plot is entertaining, with there being several "bad guys" and a sub-plot leading up to the bigger "bad guy". There are no demons or such in this movie. If your child is sensitive to scary creatures such as a pumpkin coming to life with the vines as arms and legs that chase the Scooby Doo gang... or a turkey that grows to a huge size and runs after Scooby and Shaggy... then this movie is not for them until they are older. There is very little actual violence in the movie (there is more violence in many other cartoons found on cable). Ben Ravencroft tricks the crime-fighting Scooby gang into helping him uncover a spellbook to bring his dead ancestor back to life. She is an intimidating white-clad ghost that flies through the air and chases the kids around the fairsite. There is nothing malevolent or malicious about this movie, and I'd recommend it for children four and up.Read more ›

People who said this movie was bad---it is just like any other scooby doo...scooby doo over all deals with monsters...so what if it deals with witches..I believe in Jesus too but I teach my kids the difference between reality and fiction..It is the parents job to do so...Its just imagination...get a grip..If you watched scooby doo back in the day...then you shouldn't have a problem with this one...isn't all monsters bad? My 3 kids all do prayer time and all are taught to believe in Jesus but we don't have a problem with movies overall because we know that they are just a movie...Parents do your job---Its not television or movies that teach kids---Parents should...Learn to know that movies with witches or monsters---you have to be smart enough to know that its just a movie...all scooby doo deals with some kind of ghost of monsters--hello that is what scooby doo is about--DUH! I watched scary movies back in the day but I am not going to act like the bad guy in the movie. I guess we who love the classic Wizard of Oz is evil--cause Geeze it has Witches in it!
