    Like so many of you, I was really excited to watch this episode, which I consider one of the coolest of this second season. And why is that? Well, let's see... first, we got ourselves a creepy undead band terrorizing Crystal Cove and hypnotizing everyone; and second, we see the return of three of the most beloved characters in the Scooby-Doo universe... that's right, I'm talking about Thorn, Dusk and Luna, the Hex Girls!



    I knew the girls would make a come back sooner or later, like all the recurring guest characters, but I never thought that this new appearence would surpass their original back in season 1. What I most loved about it it's the fact that we see the girls wearing their original dresses from Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost, and another two new sets of clothes (the first are dresses based on Dia de los Muertos, and the second is their casual clothes). Plus, we heard one of their old songs, and a new one, which is to say that they really tried to make this episode something for us to remember.



    The villains were good, and I have to say it was a little difficult to actually find out who were the culprits, even if the answer was right in front of our eyes. The ending was really cool, and got to handle it to them, Nova sounded really creepy while warning Scooby about Nibiru.



    This one is a certified 10, no doubt about it!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The music notes that mysteriously appeared on the Planispheric Disk and are also hum by the Hex Girls are based on the series main title music.

    • The girls explain that the reason why the are wearing their original costumes is because there was a public demand, meaning their costumes in the episode In Fear Of The Phantom are actually their second ones. They also wear two other outfits: the second is skull-like outfits based on the Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), that they wear to take on the zombiefied Rude Boy and the Ska-Tastics on a battle of the bands, and the last is more casual outfits.

    • Shaggy gives Scooby's name as "Scoobert Dooby-Doo" over the hospital intercom; Scooby's parents frequently addressed him by his full first name on the animated series A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.

    • When Scooby and Shaggy ask Thorn, Dusk and Luna to help them break the spell from Rude Boy and the Ska-Tastics, the girls are each wearing their original dress from their first appearance in Scooby-Doo and The Witch's Ghost.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World


      The battle of the bands between Rude Boy and the Ska-tastics and The Hex Girls, mirrors the battle between the Sex Bob-omb and the Katayanagi Twins, on the movie adaptation of the Canadian comic book Scott Pilgrim, staring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong, Chris Evans, Mae Whitman and Jason Schwartzman.

    • Hanna-Barbera


      The TV show HB News is an obvious allusion to Hanna-Barbera, the studios that created Scooby-Doo, as well as many other cartoons, such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Top Cat, Yogi Bear andWacky Races.
