Western Animation: Aloha, Scooby-Doo!
Everybody knows how to surf!Aloha, Scooby-Doo!
is the eighth installment in the Scooby-Doo
direct-to-DVD film series produced by Warner Bros. Animation
The Scooby-Doo gang goes on an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii that's being sponsored by the Goha Aloha-surf company, thanks to Daphne winning a contest to design some new swimwear for them. However, there is conflict surrounding this year's surfing contest. Usually it's open only to the locals, but this year the mayor has it open to everybody, including mainlanders, causing some conflicts among the contestants who happen to be locals. A few days before the contest, an evil creature known as the Wiki-Tiki Spirit and its little tiki demons attack, kidnapping a local woman called Snookie. Manu, the local surfing champion (aka, "The Big Kahuna of Hanahuna") and Snookie's boyfriend, agrees to help the gang solve the mystery of the Wiki-Tiki and rescue Snookie.
Oh, and Daphne
's in the surfing contest.
This movie provides examples of the following tropes:
- Aloha Hawaii
- Bare Your Midriff: Daphne, probably because she's wearing her bikini underneath it.
- Convection Shmonvection
- Cool Car: The gang apparently couldn't bring the Mystery Machine with them to Hawaii, but they got a rental car that has the same coloring scheme as the Mystery Machine does.
- Darkhorse Victory: To the villains, as Scooby unintentionally beats them in the surfing contest.
- Embarrassing Middle Name: After Fred claims, "Danger is my middle name!," Velma reveals that his middle name is actually "Herman," making Fred's full name Fredrick Herman Jones.
- Lava Adds Awesome
- Let's Split Up, Gang
- Mr. Fanservice: Manu could qualify for this—being voiced by Mario Lopez definitely helps.
- Ms. Fanservice: Daphne, even more so here than usual. Manu's girlfriend, Snookie, could also qualify.
- Scooby-Doo Hoax
- Surfer Dude: There are a few. Specifically Manu.
- The Reveal: Manu and Snookie were the ones behind the whole thing—they were trying to scare off the locals and non-locals to buy up all the property for pennies on the dollar and then sell it back to them to make a huge profit. Snookie's real name is also revealed to be "Pamela Waeawa," which was the name that all the houses bought up by her and Manu were put under.
