Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster is the seventh in a series of direct-to-video films based upon Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons. It was released on VHS and DVD on June 24, 2004.


The team visit Scotland to see Daphne's cousin, Shannon, but their holiday turns into a major mystery when the mythological Loch Ness Monster appears and wreaks havoc at Blake Castle. Not only will this affect the lives of the locals but it will destroy the traditional games that are held at Blake Castle every year.

  • The gang is now voiced by the cast of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, including Grey DeLisle and Mindy Cohn. DeLisle however was in Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase and briefly replaced by Heather North Kenney for Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico.
    • This is also the first to feature the Mystery Inc. gang in the same clothes they wear in What's New, Scooby-Doo? after the previous 2 DTVs had the gang wear their old clothes in the What's New, Scooby Doo? animation style.
  • This is the first feature-length Scooby-Doo movie to be set in Scotland, but it is not the first time the gang have been to Scotland, or the first time that the gang have encountered the Loch Ness Monster.
  • At the end of the movie, Scooby spotted the real Loch Ness Monster just before saying his catchphrase in a bewildered manner.
  • It is revealed in this movie that Daphne has Scottish ancestors.
  • Daphne is danger-prone because it runs in the family. It was a running gag in the old episodes for Daphne to be danger-prone.
  • This movie features the only appearance of Daphne's cousin, Shannon Blake, who looks exactly like Daphne only with short hair, grunge clothing and a Scottish accent; they are also both voiced by Grey DeLisle.
  • Del Chillman returns in Chill Out, Scooby-Doo!, where he mentions this movie by stating that "Nessie was a no-show".
  • Fred made up nicknames for the gang:
    • Velma = Mama Bird
    • Fred = Baby Bird
    • He also did other names like Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta, which are possibly for either Daphne, Shaggy, Scooby, and Del.
  • In real life, Haggis is not the same as it is presented here. Traditionally, it is a pudding with all of a sheep's vital organs. Although, it can be served as a main course, as is the case with the Burns Supper.
  • During the madcap flight from the land-based Nessie, there is an unusual example of Scooby driving the Mystery Machine. He is surprisingly good at it, given the circumstances.


Cultural references

  • The Loch Ness Monster strongly resembles the Palaeosaurus from The Giant Behemoth, a 1959 film which was later acquired by Warner Bros.
  • Shaggy says "I don't think we're in Coolsville anymore," paraphrasing a line about Kansas in the 1939 film of The Wizard of Oz.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • After everything that happens, nobody of authority shows up. Presumably McIntyre and his men are taken away off-screen.
  • The land-based Loch Ness Monster must have been a gigantic robot to have such destructive power but at the end it is shown to be made of logs and canvas, which would be incapable of such movements.
  • Shaggy and Scooby encounter a salamander eating a leaf. One, salamanders don't have teeth (except for their mythical cousins), and two, salamanders are carnivorous.
