DVD Review: SCOOBY-DOO! Mystery Inc. "Crystal Cove Curse" Season 1 Part 2

Watching all fourteen episodes of  SCOOBY-DOO! Mystery Inc. "Crystal Cove Curse"  Season One Part Two brings back a lot of childhood memories. I loved Scooby-Doo cartoons growing up and I still do!

What we get in this new DVD are fourteen fun episodes that follow Scooby and the gang. as they search for the original Mystery Inc. that went missing years back. Yes, this time we get a continuing story line while Fred (Frank Welker), Daphne (Grey DeLisle), Velma (Mindy Cohn), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Scooby solve new mysteries and meet up with some interesting monsters while  they gather clues as to what actually happened to the original group.

We get the supporting cast of characters who also return like Velma's mom (Frances Conroy), Fred's dad the Mayor (Gary Cole), Sheriff Stone voiced by Patrick Warbutron, Lewis Black voices Mr. E. and even Linda Cardellini lends her voice as Hot Dog Water plus a mysterious new character voiced by Vivica A, Fox who has a secret.  There's a lot more surprising guest voices in these episodes!  

The animation is always top notch with these cartoons and is one reason why I'm still drawn in after all these years. The stories are still fun and I always look forward to what kind of crazy monster the kids run across in each episode and who the person is behind the mask, like always.

What's so cool about this DVD is you get the fourteen awesome animated episodes that add up to over 300 minutes (YES! OVER 300 MINUTES!) of awesome Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc. adventures! Here's the run down of episodes; When the Cicada Calls, Mystery Solvers Club State Finals, The Wild Brood, Where Walks Aphrodite, Escape from Mystery Manor, The Dragon's Secret, Night Fright, The Siren's Song, The Menace of Manticore, Attack of the Headless Horror, A Haunting in Crystal Cove, Dead Justice, Pawn of Shadows, and All Fear the Freak. They mix it up with each episode with who the gang runs into and deals with while staying on the main mission the entire time. Some people get lost with continuing story lines but I enjoyed this a lot watching them do their thing and ultimately solving the mystery and find a few new personal discoveries along the way.

Bottom line is I thoroughly enjoyed watching SCOOBY-DOO! Mystery Inc. "Crystal Cove Curse" Season 1 Part 2 on DVD and highly recommend it to kids of all ages! It released on January 24th and you can order HERE. 3.5/5
