I have never been a big Scooby-Doo fan. I was more involved with mutant turtles and tiny toons to pay attention, but I had some passing knowledge of the popular cartoon. Next to Mickey Mouse, Scooby-Doo is pretty high up on the animated animal chart so it was only natural that his presence would be felt on the big screen. Enter Scooby-Doo and its sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, which were recently re-released on Blu-ray as a two-pack.
Scooby-Doo brings the famous Mystery Inc. detective agency together in their first live-action adventure. After a solving case involving a flying “ghost,” the Scooby gang gets into a heated argument, resulting in Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and Scooby going their separate ways. Two years pass and the former Scooby gang are brought back together once more by an eccentric millionaire. It seems his amusement park, Spooky Island, is having an odd effect on his guests and he wants the top detective agency to solve the mystery. In Scooby Doo-2, the sequel picks up with Mystery Inc. right at the height of their popularity up until some of their foes from their cartoon past make their presence appear, causing all sorts of havoc on their lives.
