I'm 20 years old now, and I'm not a hardcore Scooby fan. Of course I loved the Hanna-Barbera cartoons when I was a child, but they didn't exactly have incredible lasting power as I got older. Various other attempts to revise the characters likewise didn't impress me much either. 2002's "What's New Scooby-Doo?" tried updating the stories, and character designs for modern viewers but fell flat, failing to capture my imagination as an older viewer (although the character redesigns were pretty good). After "What's New" I figured that any other Scooby-Doo revival would fail in the same manner.
Boy, was I wrong!
Scooby-Doo!: Mystery Incorporated is different. It follows the general concept that we all know by heart, but it has a great sense of humor, and creates arcs for the characters to go through. And I can't overstate how awesome it is to see this in a 'Scooby-Doo!' cartoon! I feel for the characters, I want to see how they develop, and want to know how the overarching plot of the series is going to play out.
Characters are an important part of the series.Read more ›
It certainly plays homage to the original 'Scooby Do: Where are You?' series in the very first episode when Velma showcases some of the villains from the first series, such as Miner 49er. A whole episode is even dedicated as a homage to The Creeper from the first series. Even younger fans can appreciate references from the surrounding Classic Hannah Barbera cartoons, and my personal favorites from 'The Witchs' Ghost'/'What's New Scooby Doo', The Hex Girls. I also love the classic homages to horror, such as Cthulu, the Mummy, and Fright Night.
But despite the amazing homages to its own series and horror, it sets its own image with witty writing, humor that reaches all ages, and intriguing plot. To revamp the series, they had the classic 'every episode is a new mystery to trap' ordeal, with a season long mystery regarding a "Mr. E". I also applaud the visual quality, and the over-all "scary-ness" of the episodes.
My only critique is the stereotypes of each character, particularly Daphne's obsession with Fred, where in multiple episode, she did not feel as a stand-out character, but more of a compliment to Fred's character development.
I think the series wrapped up nicely, but I hope they bring it back!
TL;DR: this revamp can certainly be enjoyed by all ages, particularly avid Scooby Doo fans!
Unfortunately much of this artistry is greatly diminished on standard definition DVD. These brilliant colors and great animation scream for Blu-Ray presentation. As a long time collector of nearly every Scooby presentation from Warner Brothers, I struggled to put off buying the piecemeal release of this iteration of the franchise but succumbed eventually. Now we have a new release of the first season in a complete package, but still no BD option. Come on guys! I'm waiting for Mystery Inc. in all it's beautiful glory.

It is s fresh take on the series. It is much darker, and they did put too much relationship drama in it.
The on and off relationship with Velma and Shaggy really rings false. Read more
