Directed by David Block, ''Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire'' is the seventeenth direct-to-video installment for [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby-Doo franchise]].

It begins when Scooby and the gang take a road trip into bayou country to attend the “Vampire-Palooza Festival,” an outdoor fair dedicated to all things {{Dracula}}. At first it looks as if they're in for some fun and lots of Southern snacks, but events soon turn scary when a real life vampire comes to life, bursts from his coffin and threatens all the townsfolk. On top of that, this baritone blood sucker seems intent on taking Daphne as his vampire bride! Could the vampire be a descendant of a famous vampire hunter who is trying to sell his book? Or perhaps he's the local politician, who has been trying to make his name in the press by attacking the vampires as downright unwholesome. The answers are to be found in a showdown in the swamp which our heroes unmask one of their most macabre monsters yet.

Oh! It’s also worth noting this installment is the first musical.


* ActivistFundamentalistAntics: Jasper Poubelle, though centered around vampires. It turns out to be more or less publicity for his mayoral campaign.
* AnimatedMusical: The first of the franchise.
* ConspicuousCGI: The opening song in the Mystery Machine.
* FamedInStory: Scooby and the gang. [[spoiler:After getting caught, the villain explains that he lured them into the town because scaring people with their reputations would have increased the popularity he hoped to obtain with his hoax.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: Tully.
* {{Jerkass}}: Lita, the owner of the festival, Jasper Poubelle and Graham.
* LostInCharacter: The actors of the vampire show go way too far when it comes to being like vampires. Humorously, this leads to them being walking cliches. Lampshaded with Graham, who Daphne mentions is "one stereotype below my limit."
* TheMusical: Their first.
* MyEyesAreLeaking: Velma towards the end. The swamp gas is making her eyes water and stream down her face, making Daphne (dazed and tied to an altar) think Velma is crying.
* OnlyThePureOfHeart: The vampire kidnaps Daphne to be his bride, as he seeks that of beauty and is pure of heart. Velma takes umbrage:
-->'''Velma:''' [[HollywoodHomely You know, ''I'm'' pure of heart. Does anyone ever think of kidnapping ''me?!]]''
* RomanticFalseLead: Graham.
* ShoutOut: The sheriff is a pastiche of Don Knotts' character on ''Series/TheAndyGriffithShow''.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Scooby, the gang and other characters breaking into spontaneous singing and choreography with [[InvisibleBackupBand no discernible music source]].
* TakeThat: Daphne and Velma are fans of "[[{{Twilight}} Silverlight]]," a series of romance novels involving trendy new modern vampires. Shaggy pegs the whole thing as silly, and one of the characters is a professor who writes folklore based vampire novels and thinks the "teen vampire craze" is silly.
* VampireRefugee: Played with when Shaggy ''thinks'' he's been bitten and must part company with Scooby for fear he'll turn and attack his best pal. The scene actually gets rather maudlin until it turns into a musical number about their friendship.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Swamp hermit Tulie tells Shaggy and Scooby that the vampire stole his prototype for hovering shoes. When the vampire is captured, this is never brought back up. Similarly, Jasper Poubelle and his vampire-hunting posse is never seen again.
** The posse had to go home before [[TorchesAndPitchforks their torches burned out.]]
