7/10
Just finished rewatching the whole series on DVD
7 March 2021
Great premise, with some incredibly inventive ideas, brought to life in animation that's not bad for its time. Some very good episodes, some pretty good episodes, and some reasonable episodes. There's nothing I'd call poor.

To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before ~ 7/10; Scoobra Kadoobra ~ 6/10; Me and My Shadow Demon ~ 6/10; Reflections in a Ghoulish Eye ~ 6/10; That's Monstertainment ~ 8/10; Ship of Ghouls ~ 8/10; A Spooky Little Ghoul Like You ~ 7/10; When You Witch Upon a Star ~ 7/10; It's a Wonderful Scoob ~ 7/10; Scooby in Kwackyland ~ 7/10; Coast-to-Ghost ~ 7/10; The Ghouliest Show on Earth ~ 6/10; Horror-Scope Scoob ~ 6/10

Great vocal performances all round - especially the fantastic Vincent Price, as benevolent warlock 'Vincent Van Ghoul'! (Sad to note that with the exception of Flim Flam, the voice actors for all the principal roles - Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Scrappy, and Vincent - are no longer with us).

I'm an unashamed 'Scrappy-hater', but he's toned down here to a tolerable level.

No Fred and Velma (I'm in love with Velma Dinkley) is a minus, but despite that this still manages to be one of my favourite Scooby shows. The series was sadly cancelled before all 13 ghosts were recaptured (I've not yet caught the 2019 movie Scooby-Doo! And the Curse of the 13th Ghost that concludes the story), and it's a shame that not all episodes reached the high standard of the best. Still, overall 7.5/10
