The movie also performed well on iTunes, reaching the Top 10 on the Kids & Family movie charts and the Top 40 on the iTunes movie charts.

Plot

After wrapping up their latest mystery Velma gets a call from her mother asking her to check on her younger sister Madelyn. The gang agree to help and head off to the Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy, (Madelyn has been studying stage magic), where apparently there has been some trouble. Sightings of a giant griffin have been scaring all the students away. The gang smells trouble and decides to investigate. When Madelyn decides to take Shaggy on a romantic walk to show where the ancient sun-dial is located the Griffin appears and a chase breaks out. The rest of the students leave so the gang starts taking classes. Meanwhile Calvin Curdles continually offers to buy Whirlens castle from him. Daphne tries to get Fred's attention when he develops a superficial crush on Crystal (Whirlen's assistant) even resorting to practicing ballet to conquer her danger prone ways, whilst Madelyn tries to win Shaggy's heart. The gang read about an ancient staff that controls the Griffin so they go looking for it. But when they find it they are attaked by a Banshee. Another chase breaks out with the Griffin. After more research and Madelyn getting captured, (Shaggy and Scooby save her) the gang realise that Marlon Whirlen, (Merlin Whirlen's brother) is behind the griffin attacks and Banshee, due to Merlin taking all the credit for their magical performances. Merlin forgives Marlon and The Whirlen brothers decide to work together as equals. Calvin Curdles turns out to be only interested in buying the castle to win the heart of Alma Rumblebuns, after finding this out the two reconcile. Madelyn becomes Whirlen's new apprentice and Velma and Shaggy gain new respect for her. At Madelyn's first performance as Whirlens apprentice Daphne is her assistant (having been trained by Crystal) and wins Fred back. The film ends with Scooby 'lion taming' Whirlen's lion.

Trivia

  • This is Matthew Lillard's first time as the voice of Shaggy in a direct-to-video Scooby-Doo movie since Casey Kasem's retirement from voice acting in July 2009. He had previously portrayed Shaggy in Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed as well as a parody skit on Robot Chicken.
  • The animation is now in a different format, with a darker, more realistic look similar to Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, and the characters are now in their original outfits and designs from the 1969 series.
  • This film returns to the classic "just a guy in a mask" routine for the first time since Chill Out, Scooby-Doo!.
  • Legendary Hanna-Barbera actor John Stephenson (famous for the voices of Mr. Slate from The Flintstones and Luke and Blubber Bear from Wacky Races) returns as the voice of the Sheriff.
  • This DTV is the first to not feature a Hanna-Barbera Productions logo at the end, which seemed appropriate as Warner Bros. Animation had produced all the DTV Scooby-Doo movies.
