Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Scooby-Doo mystery includes the usual mild scares and peril kids expect from the franchise. Cartoonish violence, chase scenes, some near falls, and scary "monsters" abound. Daphne wears a revealing bikini and gets referred to as "hot," by a male colleague. In the end, teamwork saves the day.
- Sexual Content
- While Velma stays in her tried-but-true classic uniform of the matching orange top and kneesocks, Daphne surfs in a bikini.
- Tiny monsters seem to be terrorizing the small Hawaiian village with spears, axes, or spiked clubs and people act afraid of the spirits. Threats of human sacrifice. Cartoonish violence involving surfing accidents and near-falls off cliffs into lava and snakepits.
- Some subtly sexist language directed toward Daphne ("hot," "sweetie").
- Social Behavior
- As usual for Scooby-Doo stories, the tenets of teamwork and friendship are strong. The idea that "crime doesn't pay" gets some play. And there's a subtle pro-environmental, anti-corporate expansion message expressed.
- Scooby-Doo is part of a long-running and heavily marketed franchise.
