Big Top Scooby-Doo Movie DVD Review





When the Brancusi Circus comes to town, Fred — who has always had dreams about performing under the big top — jumps at the opportunity to visit the show. Upon their arrival, Scooby and the gang learn the circus performers have been terrorized by a werewolf who has not only frightened them but has also stolen jewelry from circus spectators. The circus is blamed for the attacks and faces a potential shutdown. Desperate for help, the circus ringleader turns to Scooby-Doo and his pals. To get close to the action, they all go undercover as circus performers: Fred becoming a trapeze artist, Daphne a daring motorcycle stunt driver and Velma a human cannonball. Will they be ready to face a frightening team of circus-themed werewolves?

 “Big Top Scooby-Doo! is a full-length, fun-filled adventure the entire family can enjoy together,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “Kids love to see Scooby-Doo in exciting new settings, so we put him in this colorful, circus-themed atmosphere where he’s got limitless opportunities to get into all sorts of hilarious predicaments and crazy shenanigans. If you love Scooby-Doo, this a must-have title for your home entertainment library.”

 The Blu-ray™ combo pack will include UltraViolet which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the standard definition theatrical version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

Scooby-Doo: Big Top Scooby-Doo is currently available for purchase through Amazon.

My kids recently became Scooby-Doo fans when we went on a long car trip this summer.  My son had previously viewed a holiday Scooby-Doo movie, but really became a fan over the course of our road trip.  Needless to say by the end of the trip we were able to sing the theme song by heart!   Currently, our 2 1/2 year old will grab one of the DVD’s and say she wants a “Scooby snack”.  We have learned that this is what she calls Scooby movies.  The kids were very excited to see this latest Scooby-Doo movie.

The kids really liked the movie.  When asked how it rated with other Scooby movies our almost 6 year old said it was as good as  others he has seen recently.  Here is the premise of the movie:

Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and the gang arrive in Atlantic City for a relaxing vacation…and land center-stage in a three-ring mystery! After visiting a shuttered big top that’s being hounded by werewolves, the gang goes undercover to find out why. It’s up to Daphne the clown, trapeze artist Fred, Velma the human rocket, ringmaster Shaggy and the amazing trick dog Scooby-Doo to solve the mystery and save the circus. But when they repeat their crowd-pleasing performance for Shaggy’s favorite Swedish metal band, Wülfsmöøon, the beasts come back for one more hair-raising ruckus. Scooby-Doo and Shaggy juggle fun, fright and feats of bravery and puzzle-solving skill in the greatest original Scooby-Doo movie on earth!

My kids have deemed this a hit and have asked for it a few times since they have initially watched it.  I am happy to report it keeps my kids interest and gives me a little uninterupted cleaning time!  If you are a Scooby fan I would recommend seeing this movie.
