Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Scooby-Doo!: Stage Fright, as with most Scooby-Doo films, contains some scary bits (in this case, a Phantom of the Opera-style "ghost" that terrorizes a theater) and some adolescent humor (Daphne keeps pining for Fred, and they eventually kiss). Although some characters are temporarily injured, rest assured that the Mystery, Inc. gang always catches the villain.
Daphne is shown in a cleavage-baring nightgown, and she is preoccupied with her crush on Fred for all of the movie. There's one public kiss, and another scene in which a man stares at a beautiful young woman. A talent-show contestant wears tight, skimpy outfits.
The "phantom" of the opera house/theater may be frightening to some viewers. He sets fire to the theater, causes sets to collapse, and injures people in the process. He is ultimately caught, of course, by the Mystery, Inc. gang.
Insults such as "dumb," "dirty," "germy," "disgusting," and "stupid" are said occasionally.
Scooby and the gang are always good examples of how very different people can still be very good friends with complementary strengths that help them collaborate on solving their various mysteries.
The gang makes a couple of pop-culture references, but there are no product placements. The Scooby-Doo franchise has spawned everything from games and apparel to plush figurines and books.
