Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire Blu-ray/DVD Combo + UltraViolet Digital Copy Review


Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire

The first-ever original animated Scooby-Doo Musical/Movie!

Available for purchase March 13, 2012!

Get set for big laughs, good times and cool tunes with the Scooby-Doo gang as they travel to the super spooky parts of the Deep South for the Vampire-Palooza Festival. The event kicks off with good fun and lots of tasty Southern snacks, but it’s not long before the festivities are interrupted by a real vampire who threatens the townsfolk and tries to take Daphne for his vampire bride!

Good thing our intrepid heroes don’t believe in the bloodsuckers — or do they? Packing a little garlic never hurt anyone, except a vampire, and so the gang sets out to investigate. Could the culprit be the descendant of a famous vampire hunter who is trying to sell his book? Or is it the festival’s owner, who is trying to use vampire lore to promote the fair? Maybe it’s the festival’s traveling musical troupe, whose very handsome lead singer is taking his vampire role just a little too seriously?
Things get more complicated when Shaggy, believing he’s been bit by a vampire, decides to hide from his friends in the swamp, but his loyal friend Scooby-Doo will not abandon him. And when Daphne goes missing, can Fred and Velma bring everyone together to prevent her from becoming the vampire queen? Everything culminates in a not-to-be-missed song-filled showdown in the swamp!

Scooby-Doo is gold in our house.  I’m not sure when it happened, but the gang has become one of my children’s favorites.  This is sweet for me to watch as I too watched Scooby-Doo when I was a kid.  The animation has been updated, but the at the heart of the show the story line and characters are still the same.  I loved the spookiness of the shows and the discovery of the real criminal.  Scooby-Doo is classic television to me.

Needless to say my children were ecstatic to watch this new selection.  Actually what happened was quite humorous.  I happily daunted the new DVD in front of my non-reading four year old.  He then proceed to say, “Mom, you got Scooby-Doo!  Music of the Vampire!”.  I stared at him in disbelief for a moment.  I looked at the box and then I looked at him.  Then I said, “How in the heck did you know that?”.  He then states that he saw the preview on a different show.  Aww…I thought for a moment Scooby-Doo had instantly made my son learn how to read:)

This movie is a bit different from other Scooby-Doo shows as they do instead sing through out this DVD.  Most kids enjoy music so I see this as a natural progression and a great idea.  My kids were a little confused, they actually asked me why there was so much music.  But they love Scooby-Doo and this new movie has become a favorite.

I decided to interview my four year old regarding the DVD.  Here is the official scoop;)

“It was totally vampire awesome!”

My favorite part is when they capture the vampire.  It’s really not real.”  (meaning he really isn’t a vampire)

“Shaggy got bitten by a vampire”. 

Obviously the vampire thing, was a big hit!

The package I received included a DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital copy.  I haven’t had a chance to download the digital copy yet, but I love that so many movies are now being packaged with all these options!
