3-D Struction is the second episode of the first season of What's New, Scooby-Doo?.


Daphne's uncle sends the gang to Costa Rica for the opening of a museum exhibit on dinosaurs. When they meet archeaologist Melbourne O'Reilly, he reveals the legend of a dinosaur-spirit. So when the gang watch a dino-film in the museum's theater, the dinosaur in the film jumps out of the screen and into the audience. It's up to the gang to figure out who's really behind this devastating dinosaur disaster.


Melbourne O'Reilly and Luis Cepeda head into a jungle in a truck. Luis says they'll soon be at the Temple of Agasaris.

  • The episode is a partial homage to the 1993 film Jurassic Park; the dinosaur roar used in this episode is very similar to the one used in Jurassic Park.
  • This is the second time Scooby-Doo faces a dinosaur; the first time was in the episode The Dinosaur Deception.
  • Plot elements from The Dinosaur Deception were re-used in this episode (the setting is in Latin America, the villain in both episodes is mining precious metals, the dinosaur is a excavating machine).
  • Hakimoto makes reference to the tagline of Jaws 2.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • The Dinosaur Spirit had been changing its shape and size in most scenes it has appeared.
  • When Scooby was in a dinosaur disguise to lure the dinosaur, the next shot shows his disguise has disappeared.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • When Shaggy steps on the gunk in the mine, Velma immediately assumes that it is coprolite (fossilized dinosaur feces) but the only known samples are fossilized and rock-like in shape. What took Daphne so long to recognize it as bat guana, and why didn't Velma know this?
  • One of the skeletons in the museum had the body of a Stegosaurus, but its skull resembled a Triceratops.
