  • A nifty storyline sabotaged by the franchise's worst climax ever.

    In the near forty years that Scooby Doo has been on, it would seem natural that they'd begin recycling old monsters, and sure enough here they revive the Yeti--which was done in 1969 as "That's Snow Ghost" and in 1972 as "Scooby Doo Meets Laurel & Hardy." Imitation is surely the most sincere form of television.

    But the animators at Warner Bros. (who have been making made-for-TV Scooby animated movies the last ten years) take such artistic laziness and put a creative spin on it. The gang's holiday in Paris turning into another busman's holiday is a wonderful bit of character chemistry (and Velma looked cute in a beret), while the gist of the storyline (search for Shangri-La, said Yeti) and set pieces was very original and nicely animated. All this comes crashing down with a climax that made the Scrappy Doo episodes look like Rocky & Bullwinkle. The sky above for this series of movie was surely the climax of "Where's My Mummy?" (2005). "Chill Out, Scooby Doo's'" climax (if you haven't seen it, I won't spoil it) is the mud below.
