Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this animated Scooby-Doo adventure features potentially frightening sequences of ghost dinosaurs that may be too intense for preschoolers. As in most of the Scooby gang's escapades, there are some moments of tension and peril, but no one is seriously hurt. In this story, Velma flirts with a like-minded young scientist, and the two go out to dinner and even briefly touch hands. But forget fledgling romance: Scooby and his four teen mates are all about crime-solving collaboration.
- Sexual Content
- Fred says "Nice!" when he sees pictures of women in a bikini in a resort brochure. Velma falls for a nerdy paleontologist, and the two go out to dinner and briefly hold hands.
- The "phantosaurs" aren't just spooky ghost-like apparitions; they roar and run and cause people to hide. There are also very real-looking dinosaurs running around frightening the locals. In one scene, Shaggy, who's been hypnotized to become a "fearless hero" whenever he hears the word "bad," gets into a tussle at a diner, where he leaves things in disrepair. A group of bikers looks menacing at first but becomes the Mystery gang's allies.
