Scooby Doo! Live On Stage
It could have gone in a totally different direction - a Rocky Horror-style spoof for grown up stoners. It has all the ingredients, after all - flower power clothes and sixties music, camp dialogue and a bunch of groovy teens searching for monsters in a psychedelic camper van. Instead, Scooby-Doo! Live On Stage embraces the cartoonns innocence in a show unashamedly aimed at the under tens. And, boy, did they turn out in droves for the opening night of this lengthy run.

As the kids scream Itts behind you!! itts like the pantomime season all over again, and although the show lacks the double entendre that panto throws in for the adults, IIm sure mums and dads will find plenty to enjoy in the sheer skill and spectacle with which Scooby Doo! is staged.

Visually, the Theme Star production completely fulfils its brief of bringing the cartoon series to life. Matthew Quinn, Liz Pearce, Kate Chamuris and Jamie Wilson all look and sound exactly like their animated counterparts, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Freddie, while Pierre Marc Diennet is especially convincing as Scoob - his suit is a masterpiece and youud never believe there was a man inside it.

Mind you, as my companion pointed out on the way home, there was more than one Scooby Dog, wasn't there - at least two? Well yes, there had to be, to handle some of the quick fire costume changes and rapid exits and entrances that completely capture the zany pace of a living cartoon.

Scooby-Doo is Scooberific!
“Scooby-Doo! Who’s Watching Who?” for PSP is a whirlwind mystery adventure in which Mystery Inc. (Velma, Fred, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo) compete against Ghost Scene Investigators (GSI) in a race to solve mysteries on a reality show.

The members of GSI have serious attitudes and can’t imagine Scooby’s team ever beating their scientific methods in a mystery-solving marathon. The GSI team is looking to boost their reality show’s ratings by defeating Mystery Inc. as Scoob and his pals prove their worth by gathering clues and defeating ghostly enemies.

In this game, the player takes on the persona of Scooby-Doo. Scooby roams around the site of the mystery, both indoors and surrounding areas, searching for clues. The player chooses Scooby’s path, while collecting clues, Scooby Snacks and Dog Tags along the way.

As Scooby gathers clues, he takes them back to Velma in the Mystery Machine to analyze with special Ghost Detective Equipment. The devices analyze specific clues and assign each clue as a mark against a specific suspect. The clues don’t always make sense, but since Velma suggests that certain clues implicate certain suspects, you don’t have to fret, the answers are pretty much given to you.

The most exciting part of the game doesn’t occur as Scooby looks for clues. The real fun starts when he opens a door and begins a chase. For example, in one episode, Scooby and Shaggy are in a kitchen searching for food when a monster shows up. The daring dog must save his petrified pal from being scared stiff. Shaggy leaps into Scooby’s paws (a la the animated series) and they run through the kitchen dodging slippery spots, steaming dishwashers and ghastly ghosts.

Did I mention you even get to drive the Mystery Machine? As Mystery Inc. races to catch a haunted stagecoach that holds another clue, the player actually drives the Mystery Machine around a spooky graveyard. There are twists, turns and even an escapade through an underground cave.

Overall, I really enjoyed Scooby’s newest game. Though the clues were a little confusing, the investigation aspect was a lot of fun.

“Scooby-Doo! Who’s Watching Who?” is probably too advanced for kids 6 and under, but the 7 and up crowd should respond well to this clue-cracking quest. Girls and boys alike are sure to love this game – especially those die-hard Scooby fans like myself.

R’over r’ere!
