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!

“Vampire stories are a hugely popular genre with consumers and now Scooby-Doo has his very own modern-day vampire encounter in this exciting new film,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Marketing Director of Family & Animation Franchise. She added, “This is Scooby-Doo’s first ever musical, which we think is a fun concept that goes well with the premise of the film. It actually takes us back to Scooby-Doo’s early television series, which incorporated a lot of musical elements. We think viewers of all ages will enjoy this DVD release.”

DVD Bonus Material:

Sing-A-Long: Sing with Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and the rest of the cast from the movie in the Scooby-Doo Vampire Sing-A-Long. Includes six songs for fourteen minutes of fun.


Now I am a huge Scooby fan.  Have been as long as I can remember so I was thrilled to get to review a new movie featuring one of my favorite dogs!  My kids also like Scooby which is great to me.  Now this Scooby movie is different from the rest in one way - It's a musical!  Now I know some of you were not thrilled when I said musical, but honestly it is not all singing.  Of course my daughters loved the singing parts and also the bonus material where they could sing along .  Surprisingly though even my son enjoyed the singing as well.

This dvd has gotten tons of use in my house since we got it.  My kids love it.  My son even took it to school for their movie day.  This dvd would make a great Easter basket addition.  The dvd is available where dvds are sold and online at Amazon.com for $14.99.   So be sure to grab a copy today.
