My children recently asked for this Scooby-Doo movie so I went and bought it. I grew up with old Scooby-Doo cartoons from the early 80's so figured it would be ok. We were delighted when the silly antics of Scooby and the gang were pretty similar to the formula that worked so well long ago. In typical Scooby fashion, ghost pirates attack a pleasure cruise the gang are on.
This movie goes well with all of the other pirate themed movies that are popular right now and is a great pick for kids of all ages. The violence in minimal and cartoony and it can help get your kids interested in pirate lore, the Bermuda triangle and different types of ships. This can be a good jump start to get your kids learning about nautical history as my kids immediately wanted to watch a pirate show on the History Channel soon after.
