Chill Out, Scooby-Doo! is a 2007 direct-to-video animated feature film produced by Warner Bros. Animation. It is a semi-remake of the classic Scooby episodes, That’s Snow Ghost!, The Ghost of Bigfoot, and There’s No Creature Like Snow Creature as well as A Scary Night With A Snow Beast Fright, except it takes place in the Himalayas and features the Abominable Snowman.
On a climbing expedition in the Himalayas, Professor Jeffries is led by his Sherpa, Pemba to a high point on a mountain with an ancient tablet. Jeffries is out looking for the Abominable Snowman. He is convinced that the Snowman lives close by, but Pemba tells him he will not lead Jeffries anymore, as it would be intruding on the territory of the snowman. Jeffries, who seems to care about the snowman over the safety of Pemba, decides to cut the rope and continue. As soon as Jeffries fades from view, Pemba sees the outline of a large creature in front of him.
Meanwhile, Fred, Velma, and Daphne are on vacation in Paris. However, Scooby-Doo and Shaggy have not arrived yet, and the gang wonders where they are. Shaggy and Scooby are in a small plane that they think is going to Paris, but is really going to the Himalayas to drop off Alphonse LaFleur, a world-famous French hunter. LaFleur wants to find and kill the snowman and is taking Shaggy and Scooby along as bait.
Realising they are not going to Paris, Shaggy manages to get a quick call through to Fred before the phone goes dead. Fred uses the GPS on his phone to track them, and then he, Velma, and Daphne head to the Himalayas to find them. Velma wonders if it has anything to do with the legend of the creature in the Himalayas…
The film debuted on Cartoon Network on August 31, 2007, with a September 4, 2007 release date for the DVD.
The film was dedicated to Iwao Takamoto, who died during the making of the film.
“Not a knock-out but also not terrible, Chill Out, Scooby-Doo! pretty much fits into the generic, action-filled mode of most of these new Scooby-Doo movies: they’re okay time-fillers, but classics? No.”
