SCOOBY DOO AND THE SAMURAI SWORD
In Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword, the Mystery Inc. crew travel the globe on a transcontinental treasure hunt, circling Asia and the Pacific to solve a series of ancient riddles. They race against the vengeful Black Samurai and his spectral Ghost Warriors to claim the ancient Sword of Fate, a blade fabled to possess extraordinary supernatural powers. Along the way, Scooby-Doo and Shaggy are indoctrinated by an unlikely Sword Master who teaches them Boshido, the way of the Samurai. Their emerging skills are quickly tested by an unstoppable army of Robot Ninjas. And in the end, our harried heroes discover that Boshido, emphasizing loyalty, honor and courage, holds the key to the mystery.
This was a fun flick that reminded me of the first Scooby Doo features that came out of Warner Bros. Definitely a return to form and fun Scooby Doo style.
DVD Bonus Features:
