“Scoob” is an animated film about the never before told story of Scooby-Doo’s origins. A modern story that explains the beginning to the Scooby-Doo franchise which began in 1969. 

Shaggy and Scooby make friends with Fred, Daphne, and Velma who face hardships throughout their friendship, but together they find the importance to their bond. 

The long awaited movie premiered on Friday, but due to COVID-19, it was not allowed to premier in theaters because the cinema remains closed. However, an new alternative for its release was found. 

“Scoob” was released on different platforms like YouTube, Amazon Prime and Vudu. It is one of the few films that has proceeded to release on its original date.

The focus in the film is the defeat of villain, Dick Dastardly, who seeks to kidnap Scooby in order to unleash treasure from the underworld. 

What does Scooby have to do with opening the gates to the underworld? 

Well Alexander the Great was who stashed his possessions and locked them away in the underworld, and the gate may only be unlocked by his dog, Peritas. 

The movie delves into why Alexander’s dog is so important to them.

Scooby and Shaggy get help from their friends Fred , Daphne, and Velma find their way to Scooby and Shaggy  in an attempt to rescue them and defeat Dastardly.

 They also received help from Shaggy’s longtime idol, the Blue Falcon. 

The Blue Falcon’s team contributed to the rescue of Scooby and Shaggy from the beginning of Dastardly’s attempt to kidnap Scooby through his evil creation of robots. 

Through this mission the gang discovered that Shaggy and Scooby are the heart to their group just like Fred is the tank, Daphne is the empath and Velma is the brain. 

Their dispute began when Simon Cowell agreed to invest in Mystery Inc. if Shaggy and Scooby were not a part of it. 

Shaggy and Scooby felt underappreciated and believed they were not important to the group. However, they found a whole new meaning to their friendship. 

 The Mystery Inc. met when they were kids through an encounter where Shaggy and Scooby were being teased by other boys, and Fred, Daphne, and Velma asked them to join them. 

They agreed and were inseparable since, but they had to reevaluate their friendship and through the mission their bond only became stronger.

The movie had an accordingly plot except it did not focus on the origins of the Mystery Inc. long enough. 

It was like watching an old “Scooby-Doo” series except in a much more modern script. It is something for the new generation of kids being introduced to “Scooby-Doo,” anyone who grew up watching the franchise will most likely be unimpressed.
