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?
