Scooby – Doo! Abracadabra – Doo

TV is a big thing in our house, and when we’re not watching it Oli is, and even though he may not even be able to say anything (apart from Mama & Dadda) or even quite walk yet this doesn’t stop him from letting us know what he wants to watch on the TV.¬†We’ve introduced him already too many of our childhood faves but was yet to introduce him to Scooby – Doo. That was until we got sent Scooby – Doo! Abracadabra – Doo, Scooby’s new animated movie to review Scooby – Doo! Abracadabra – Doo, Scooby’s new animated movie to review.

Oli may only be one and a few years younger than the recommended age, but he loves his programs (future TV critic?).He will let me know if he finds a certain program boring or unexciting as he will bring the remote to me – subtle hint for me to turn it over!


About Scooby – Doo! Abracadabra

Scooby-Doo and the gang go on a trip to check on Daphne’s sister, Melissa. She’s been studying magic at the Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy. Apparently, there’s been trouble at the Academy. Sightings of a giant dragon have been scaring all the students away. The gang smells trouble and decides to investigate

And what did Oli / we think of the film?

We found it to be the perfect family film to watch on a Sunday afternoon; There’s such an element of fun to it that even Oliver at the age of One found funny & entertaining. He giggled away at Scooby- Doo; I think he found the concept of a talking dog hilarious! From start to finish we were entertained, we didn’t realise how much fun watch a film together was. (Note for next time – prepare Scooby snacks!) The plot to this Scooby – Doo Film is fantastic – you will not be disappointed. We meet new characters such as Velma’s sister Madelyn.

Matthew Lillard is the voice for Shaggy – he played Shaggy in the non-animated Scooby – Doo films. He certainly brings Shaggy to life in the Abracadabra as much as he did in Scooby – Doo The Movie. The animation is great, and the film was great with keeping up with the times.. we see both a mobile phone & satnav in the opening scenes!

Oli can now add Scooby-Doo to his forever growing film collection (honestly his DVD pile is bigger than ours!)

We highly recommend it to everyone from age 1 to 100+ !!

It’s a great family classic in film form, what more could you ask for?
