Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, and the Mystery Inc. gang hit the bodacious beaches of Hawaii for the Big Kahuna of Hanahuna Surfing Contest–only to discover there’s a terribly real monster about to show all the true meaning of wipeout! The locals are convinced that island spirits are furious over a new resort being built on sacred ground and when an army of tiny demons attacks the surfers, the ancient properties appear to be true. Could this be the first mystery that Daphne finally can’t figure out before trouble–in the form of a huge volcano–erupts?
This movie was just like all the other Scooby-Doo animated movies. The only difference was a minor upgrade with Fred and Daphine’s clothes. Also, a few lighting effects, compared to the classic Scooby Doo shows. The only bad thing about this movie was when you see it one time, you’ll always remember who the masked Tiki is. So, it takes away the replay value a little bit, but it’s still fun to watch. There are a few funny moments but not many.
As for the voice-overs, Frank Welker still does the voice of Fred Jones, Scooby-Doo, and the Wiki-Tiki. Casey Kasem still does the voice of Shaggy, as well. Mindy Cohn does the voice of Velma, and Grey DeLisle does the voice of Daphne Blake, and Auntie Mahina. There are a few guest voice-vers, as well, such as: Mario Lopez as Manu, and Adam West as Jared Moon.
If you enjoy watching Scooby-Doo animated movies or shows, you’ll enjoy this one, as well. I would have gave it 6 stars, but because of the whole not being able to forget who the villan really was, I had to take away a star from it.
