Production Details
First appearance Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico
Played by Rita Moreno

Doña Dolores is the widowed mother of Alejo Otero, the manager of a large hotel in Veracruz, Mexico. Her husband, the original owner of the hotel, died a year prior to the events of the film.

Physical appearance

She is a somewhat elderly woman with grey hair and brown skin. She wears a purple skirt, a matching blouse, pearl earrings and a pearl necklace.


Dolores is a kind and loving mother, and maintains an excellent relationship with her sons and daughter-in-law, Sofia. However, she is not altogether fond of Luis's fiancée, Charlene, and is relieved when she is carted off to jail at the end, calling her a witch. She is a determined woman, and good in a crisis, but she did go into hysterics upon informing Luis of Charlene's abduction by El Chupacabra. When confronted by what appeared to be her husband's ghost, she faints but quickly regains consciousness.


Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico

Dona Dolores first appears at the pool with her extended family, where Alejo introduces her to the gang. She has lunch with the gang and her family when Senor Fuente enters, and she reveals that he wants to buy her family's land and hotel and calls him a jerk. When a rainstorm forces everyone inside, she listens to Alejo recounting his encounter with El Chupacabra. The next morning, she bids the gang and her sons farewell and is confused by Fred's impromptu and somewhat inaccurate Spanish. Though unseen, she is present when El Chupacabra apparently abducts Charlene and is left somewhat shocked by the experience. When the gang return for the Day of the Dead festival, she is being comforted by Sofia and three other women, one of whom thinks that Dolores is lucky for having her future daughter-in-law carried off, to which Dolores scolds her. When Luis and Alejo ask what has happened, she tells them to calm down before promptly bursting into tears and hysterically revealing that Charlene has been taken. After calming down, she and her family leave gifts at her husband's gravestone, with Dolores placing a painting as her gift. She and the others are shocked when what claims to be the ghost of her late husband appears, and promptly faints in shock. The supposed ghost is revealed to be an illusion controlled by Mr. Smiley, and Dolores flees with everyone else when El Chupacabra appears and wreaks havoc. When the creature is subdued and reveled to be Charlene, Dolores speaks of her distrust of Charlene and calls her a witch in Spanish. Her final appearance is leading Shaggy, the gang and her family on a conga dance.
