Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Lego Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood is the first DVD teaming the popular building toy with the classic Hanna-Barbera characters. Some of the familiar characters are voiced by regular Scooby-Doo voice actors, while others are new to this Lego release, but all retain the bright, upbeat qualities of the originals. It's set in an old film studio famous for its monster movies, with some suspense and mild action. The villains and monsters are less scary than the usual series evildoers given the constraints of Lego building-brick construction. Still there are zombies, mummies, and even a glowing headless horseman to threaten the heroes and give them a mystery to solve. Following the 2015 release of Lego Minifigure Scooby-Doo play sets, it's a cross-promotion effort expected to enhance sales. OK for all but the youngest kids who are not yet comfortable with cartoon violence.
Mildly scary monsters (a zombie and a "headless" horseman -- really a glowing pumpkin head) chase and menace the heroes. Some tumbles, crashing equipment, cackling villains, Lego swordplay and gunplay. Some dark, shadowy sets and references to haunted places.
Using intelligence and working together for a purpose yields rewards. Greed and deception result in punishment.
First Lego Scooby-Doo DVD release. Ties in with Lego Minifigures play sets. New additions to the vast Scooby-Doo franchise.
