Chill Out, Scooby Doo (Animated Feature/DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Film: C



I have not been happy with the Scooby Doo franchise, especially the live action disasters bearing the name, but I have to admit that Chill Out, Scooby Doo is fine, passable entertainment for fans and children.  Best of all, despite new techniques, the animators have been remarkably accurate about recreating the color from the vintage series without much compromise.


This time, the gang goes to the Himalayas, where they meet The Abominable Snowman.  You can guess the rest.  Frank Weller and Casey Kasem are back, joined by Mindy Cohn, Alfred Molina and Rene Auberjonois as good voice actors in this comic romp.


The 1.33 X 1 image is not only good in color, but depth and detail for the simple animation are fine and will be mostly rewatchable for the child audience it is most aimed at.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is fair, but not very good at utilizing all the channels available.  Dialogue is nicely recorded.  Extras include a Music Video, game, deleted scene and four trailers for other Warner animation DVD product.
