The fifth direct-to-video installment of the [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby-Doo franchise]], '''''Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire''''' was produced by [[Creator/WarnerBros Warner Bros. Animation]] along with including copyright for [[Creator/HannaBarbera Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc.]] and [[WesternAnimation/KryptoTheSuperdog directed by Scott Jeralds]]. Oh, wait sorry, wrong {{western animation}} with talking dog.

Anyways, it reunites Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/CaseyKasem, [[RoleReprisal Heather North]] and [[RoleReprisal Nicole Jaffe]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies'', with the sole exception of Creator/DonMessick who passed away five years prior.

Join Scooby and Mystery Inc. as they vacation in the [[UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} land Down Under]] where they attend a music festival held at Vampire Rock. Unfortunately, a mystery rises when they learn a legendary Australian creature called the “Yowie Yahoo” is kidnapping musical acts and turning them into vampires. Masquerading as a [[HeavyMetal heavy metal band]], the gang must survive a trio of [[RockAndRoll rock-and-roll]] vampires if they want to crack the mystery surrounding [[TitleDrop the legend of the vampire]].


* ArtShift: First direct-to-video movie to have flatter, brighter animation style, departing from the darker shading and effects used previously.
* ContinuityNod: The return of the Hex Girls from ''Witch's Ghost''.
* {{Fanservice}}: Daphne in a bikini. When the gang gets to Bondi Beach in Sydney, some Australian lifeguards take notice and start flirting with Daphne, which makes [[ImpliedLoveInterest Fred]] jealous.
* LighterAndSofter: It’s the first to return to the lighter tone than that of the previous four movies.
* MusicalNod: The movie brings back a lot of the soundtrack and sound effects from the older shows, which the franchise hasn't since repeated.
* MythologyGag: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPYtizXOlMI the opening sequence]] introducing the gang, several shots from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2kuLBEghyI the original 1969 opening]] are recreated.
** The Gang pose as a band to enter the contest as a ruse for their investigation, and one of the other bands' members snarkily asks who'd ever heard of a band with a ''dog'' in it. Early concepts for the original ''ScoobyDoo'' cartoon depicted the Gang as a traveling rock group, with a bongo-playing sheepdog as TeamPet.
* RoleReprisal: Creator/CaseyKasem went back voicing Shaggy for the rest of the [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooDirectToVideoFilmSeries Scooby-Doo direct-to-videos]] series until [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheSamuraiSword the thirteenth installment]] and both Heather North and Nicole Jaffe reprised their roles of Daphne and Velma, respectively. Fred still has the same [[Creator/FrankWelker voice actor]].
* [[spoiler:ScoobyDooHoax]]: [[spoiler:The first to return to the original format with guys in masks]].
