The gang's vacation to Paris takes a wrong turn when Scooby and Shaggy miss their flight and end up on a skydiving expedition in the Himalayas. To make matters worse, upon arrival they must outrun the Abominable Snowmonster.
A cosmic case of UFOs, intergalactic intrigue and out-of-this-world romance launches the Mystery Gang into their most unearthly adventure ever.

I got a blast from something.
[walks over and peers at the meter]
Yeah, you're right. It's over 120 on the meter.
[puts his headset back on searching for the signal]
I don't hear it anymore.

After the closing credits, a red beam makes a circle. The black hole pops out and the fake alien appears and growls at the audience. Then the fake alien unmasks itself as Scooby-Doo and he says, "Ree-hee-hee-hee-hee!" See more »
The mystery may be a little weaker than in previous Scooby movies but this is still well worth your time and showcases the huge potential in the revamped Scooby franchise.
The Mystery Inc. gang break down in the desert (déjà vu?) and have to stay the night in a nearby town where the locals rant about aliens kidnapping cattle. So obviously they are up for investigation.
I still don't like those stupid sound effects that are STILL (!!!!!!) used when Scooby or Shaggy BEGIN to run away. You know what I'm talking about. It sounds like someone rattling a quarter around in a tin can. It's pretty lame, considering all the thought and effort that has went into updating the franchise, that these old-fashioned and cruddy sound effects are being used in this day and age.
But that aside there is a lot of fun to be had as Shaggy falls in love (his song is way cool), is kidnapped by the aliens along with Scooby and the gang suspecting a rather unfriendly mechanic.
Scooby Doo is going places (even further if they do away with those sound effects) and next time the writers should focus more on plot and mystery as this one was wrapped up in a disappointingly short 74 minutes. The movies that followed progressively got weaker and weaker.
