Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo. Caught a matinee showing yesterday (which is always best for a kids film, because you can hear how much they like it). It was good-naturedly goofy and safe for kids.

The real success of the film was the set design, which I think captured the flavor of the cartoon well (Interview with the set designers). The kitchsy Tiki-flavored hotel lobby and Haunted Mansion ride were the best.

Seems like some of the more adult humor got left on the cutting room floor and is unlikely to show up on the DVD.

Speaking of Scooby Doo, did you know he got his name from a Frank Sinatra lyric?
