Scooby Doo the Mystery Begins - Nostalgia Critic

  • Published on May 9, 2018
  • The third Scooby Doo film goes back to when the gang first met, but the Critic doesn't think it can break the bad Scooby movie curse. Let's see how it plays out!

It is the third installment in the Scooby-Doo live-action film series, revealing how the Mystery Inc. gang met and the events of their very first case.
