At nearly 4, H has gone through a number of obsessions in his early years. The plastic dolphin that he carried (and left) everywhere. Ted Bear, who we still search for at bedtime EVERY night. Anything and everything dinosaur, and more recently Scooby-Doo! Scooby-Doo has been around since 1969. Longer than me!
We all know and love it, the catch phrases, which character is your favourite and no one wanted to be Velma did they?
Well Scooby-Doo is back in our life in a BIG way. Everyday activities are linked back to Scooby-Doo almost daily. Egypt gets mentioned on the radio in the car and H pipes up, ‘that’s in Scooby-Doo’. We see a car badge, ‘that looks like the griffin on Scooby-Doo’. A visit to the museum had him overcome with excitement upon seeing Mummy’s ‘JUST LIKE ON SCOOBY-DOO!’
Considering there have been episodes running since 1969 we still seem to see lots of the same ones (over and over again). So when a new film comes out, I think I’m as excited as H.
The latest release for 2013 is Scooby-Doo! Mask of the Blue Falcon. Scooby and the gang are attending a gigantic comic book convention when a real life comic book villain attacks! Now they have to solve the mystery before the villain ruins the convention and a big comic book movie premier.
I can assure you that it ticks all the boxes for Scooby fans. I tried to get a quote from Hugo on what he thought was the best bit, he had a think and then asked if we could watch it again, now? I think that is the best endorsement, yes?
Available now from the usual retailers, Scooby-Doo: Mask of the Blue Falcon (DVD + UV Copy) also comes with a download version so you can have a copy on tablets/ipads in case of emergency
