“Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers”, 1987

In the late 1980s, Hanna-Barbera produced a series of ten animated television films starring its most popular characters (such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Huckleberry Dog and Yogi Bear). Three of them were dedicated to Scooby-Doo, and as in the TV series “The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo”, released several years ago, the heroes in these films faced not disguised intruders, but real extraterrestrial forces. The most notable was the first episode: “Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers.” In this film, Shaggy Rogers inherits an estate and plantation from his recently departed uncle and travels to new lands with Scooby and his puppy Scrappy (the rest of the Mystery Inc. members are not represented in the trilogy, and Shaggy wears a red t-shirt instead of the classic green t-shirt). Numerous ghosts begin to haunt them, including a headless horseman. Then the friends seek help from a team of ghost warriors, which itself consists of three ghosts (the Boo brothers), and also begin to search for treasures.

“Scooby-Doo on the Island of the Living Dead”, 1998

A cult film that started a series of direct-to-video films that continue to this day (the 38th has been released). “This time the monsters are real!” – He threatened with the slogan “Scooby-Doo on the Island of the Living Dead.” This was not the first time they turned out to be real, but it was the first time they were truly scary: the authors of “The Island” were not afraid to approach the full-fledged horror zone several times. And in general, everything felt more serious and mature – even the five heroes, who have aged a little here (they reunite after a break of several years in the plot; the same plot was later used by James Gunn, who wrote the script for the live-action movie “Scooby-) Doo”). It’s as if all the stars came together in the cartoon: excellent atmosphere (Louisiana gothic with voodoo, zombies, ghosts and other monsters), excellent picture (wonderful drawings by Japanese studio Mook Animation), excellent music (two recorded songs) by the band Skycycle and the main theme performed by Third Eye Blind), excellent turns (let’s avoid spoilers just in case). After 25 years, “Scooby-Doo on the Island of the Living Dead” remains the standard and the absolute peak of the entire series – the sequel released two decades later confirmed this once again.

“Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost”, 1999

The sequel to “Island of the Living Dead” takes an honorable second place in many hearts, but overall who cares what’s closer: the gothic swamps of Louisiana or the puritanical folk horror of New England? Otherwise the formula remains the same; real monsters, cleverly constructed events, an extremely dark atmosphere. There were some goodies for fans of the genre: One of the characters in “The Witch’s Ghost” was voiced by Tim Curry – Pennywise from the “It” miniseries. The cartoon also featured the first appearance of The Hex Girls, an all-girl eco-gothic rock band whose members became some of the most beloved supporting characters in the entire series (they later appeared in the cartoon Scooby-Doo and The Legend of the they took it). Besides Vampire, What New Kid, Scooby-Doo?” and “Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.” TV series are also included.

“Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invasion”, 2000

Following the zombie pirates and dead witches in the frame were aliens operating in a desert region similar to the state of Nevada (Area 51 aesthetic). “Invasion” quite cleverly tackles the expectations of a trio of films: surprises again, plus a much more positive and lighter tone, since we are talking more about science fiction here rather than the horror tradition. Alien Invasion was the penultimate Scooby-Doo cartoon drawn by Mook Studios, and the last to use classic hand-drawn animation before everything moved to digital.

“Scooby-Doo and the Cyberstalking”, 2001

“Cyber ​​Chase” was the final episode of the Hanna-Barbera and Mook tetralogy. In 2001, William Hanna died, following which Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros. was purchased by. Animation. It was decided to make the following cartoons more suitable for young children, abandoning real supernatural events and significantly deteriorating the quality of the animation. In a way, Cyberchase was a perfect result; It’s as if, in keeping with the theme, the animation was computer-generated and the story became meta. In the story, the heroes enter a computer game to track down a dangerous virus, meet its digital versions, and encounter numerous Easter eggs.

“Scooby Doo! Summer camp stories”, 2010

After almost a decade of direct hacking, direct-to-video movies about Scooby-Doo have partially returned to their former greatness: The quality of animation has noticeably improved, and kindergarten stuff has lost some ground to adults. fear. “Summer Camp Stories” isn’t as successful as “Island of the Living Dead” and “The Haunting of the Witch,” of course, but it still turns out to be a powerful tribute to the camp murderers led by “Friday the 13th.”

“Scooby-Doo: Franken Monster”, 2014

This list started with Shaggy inheriting an estate and ended with Velma inheriting an entire castle in Transylvania, Pennsylvania. Inspired by both Universal’s classic films about the Frankenstein monster and the comedy films parodied by Mel Brooks, “The Franken Monster” surprises with mordant humor and is often expressed through energetic editing in the spirit of Guy Ritchie and Edgar Wright. : That kind of cinematic quality – it’s not exactly what you’d expect from a cartoon about the guys at the Mystery Corporation, but it strangely works pretty well.

The cartoon “Scooby-Doo and Krypto” was published online – a crossover with the DC universe, which became the 38th among full-length cartoons about the dog Scooby and his fellow investigators from Mystery Inc.: Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred. Film critic “” and long-time fan of the series Pavel Voronkov watched all these films and selected the seven best. We could have avoided this if it weren’t for those annoying kids!
