YMMV / Scooby-Doo Direct-to-Video Film Series

  • Broken Base: The series as a whole is in one of its own. Given it has been going on strong for years it has a clearly beloved fanbase still supporting it year after year. It also has some detractors who wonder why it is still going on without any signs of ending. Similar thoughts are echoed on its sibling entity the Tom and Jerry film series, and is a very solid reason why Hanna-Barbera's IPs are still considered divisive to this day.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Shaggy and Crystal, thanks to Alien Invaders. To a lesser extent, Scooby and Amber as well.
  • First Installment Wins: Zombie Island is considered the best movie in the series and one of the best Scooby-Doo animations ever by some of the fans.
  • Growing the Beard: This trope is brought up on some aspects of the series as it has changed style several times. Some would consider the first four movies a Growing the Beard for the Scooby Doo franchise as a whole. While starting with Abracadabra Doo some feel The film series started putting more focus on the characters for the better compared to the previous section.
  • Take That, Audience!/Trolling Creator: The 2010-era movies have made numerous references to Mystery Incorporated, a few being pokey towards fans that take continuity seriously (i.e. the fans that want the 2010-era movies to be in the same continuity as Mystery Incorporated and/or look down on the 2010-era movies for being Reconstruction/Lighter and Softer instead of taking after the Darker and Edgier/Cerebus Syndrome tone of Mystery Incorporated). In the same vein, however, the movies are lightheartedly reminding viewers to loosen up because Scooby-Doo has ultimately always been Rule of Fun.
