Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness is the twenty-third in a series of direct-to-video films based upon Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo Saturday morning cartoons. It was made available for digital download on February 3, 2015, and later on DVD on February 17.[1]


Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma win the last five sets of a lottery to take a cruise into space in billionaire, Sly Baron's, brand new ship, the Sly Star One. During the flight a savage alien gets onboard, causing an emergency landing on the Sly Moon Prime, where the visitors are seemingly stranded until repairs can be made.

Suspect Motive/reason
Clark Sparkman Ratings for his show.
Ridley To prove aliens exist.
H.A.M. He looks creepy and has a bad, sometimes dark, sense of humour.
U-Boat He doesn't trust anything that isn't human.
Sly Baron For publicity.
Hudson Baron Revenge on his brother for keeping him at work on Sly Moon Prime for years, without anyone to talk to.


Culprits Motive/reason
Shannon Lucas as the alien Sly made space available for anybody, when she had giving up everything to go.
Blaming an alien attack for the destruction of Sly Moon Prime (and the lives it took) would ensure it was only for experts like her.

Cultural references

  • There are several references to the science fiction film, Alien:
    • Ridley is a parody of Ellen Ripley. "Ridley" is a play on both Ripley and Ridley Scott, the film's director.
    • H.A.M. is based on Ash. The revelation that H.A.M. is really a human is the reverse of what happened in Alien.
    • The alien has a similar appearance and power to the Xenomorph.
  • Sly is a parody of Richard Branson, who's also trying to achieve the same thing that Sly does.
  • Zip Elvin and Colt Steelcase are parodies of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong; Zip being the most of obvious, at least in name.
  • Shaggy says he once saw a show about a man who saw gremlins on the outside of his plane, which is a reference to the The Twilight Zone episode, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet. Although, that only had one gremlin.
  • H.A.M. painting Sly Baron's portrait is a reference to the infamous scene from the movie, Titanic.
  • NASA is mentioned.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • TBA

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The "Drivers Test" sign is missing an apostrophe.
  • Aside from the fact Scooby owns a driver's license (perhaps because of the fact that he drove it on two recent occasions previously to this), his signature was a paw print, instead of writing his own name, which he had already done in the What's New, Scooby-Doo? episodes, The Unnatural and A Scooby-Doo Valentine, respectively.
    • The paw print is also too small to actually come from Scooby himself.
  • The previous film once again, highlighted Fred's strong affection for the Mystery Machine (perhaps even to its fullest), yet he doesn't seem at all bothered that Daphne crashed it into a tree in this one. Perhaps the fact that he had already seen it blow up and accept it thereafter in the last one, a small crash wouldn't seem that big.
  • The nametags are highly detailed and have the names written in when in special close-ups of the gang and U-Boat, but apart from that they're typically nameless and filled with a colour which ever compliments their own respective suits.
  • The "Say hi to me Clark" and "Fly me to the moon" signs that two people hold from the crowd standing behind Clark, end up being held by several others.
  • Daphne complains that she will get "hat hair" from the helmet, although the helmets don't do anything.
  • The sign in U-Boat's chair is not there when gets up, but reappears in the next scene.
  • Of the characters shown during lift-off, Ridley is the only one who's face doesn't distort.
  • The film takes liberties in continuity in suggesting that aliens are fake, because the gang encountered real aliens in Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders (among other adventures).
  • The red light indicator on the space suits is just to get a toilet joke, which is a setup for when Scooby and Shaggy wet themselves after first seeing the alien, as they never do this from seeing a monster. Although, Shaggy did wet himself once by a biker in Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur.
  • When the group are introduced to Hudson, Ridley keeps disappearing and reappearing, until she and Hudson talk to each other.
  • The "Sly Star Two" appears to have crash landed only a couple blocks away from where Shannon was giving her press interviews, and is shown being in direct line of sight with Shannon's location. Yet no one at the press conference notices the ship dropping out of the sky and crashing so close to them.
  • The gang gets onboard the Sly Star One by winning the last five seats in a lottery. However, Clark Sparkman's summary of the proceedings made it sound like each of the last five seats was won seperately.
  • We never get confirmation on what the strange liquid that Daphne, Fred, Zip, and Colt found on the floor is.
  • The alien in Ridley's video that she shows Clark and Velma matches the alien design Shannon used for her alien suit. It is never established whether Shannon used that video as inspiration for her costume or it was just a coincidence.
  • Toon physics:
    • Fred pulls out his own clipboard when joining Zip and Colt.
    • Daphne pulls out her phone from nowhere.
    • Scooby and Shaggy's suits grow after they eat all the crates of U-Boat Bites.
    • Daphne drives the Mystery Machine right off the top floor of the parking lot, which should've smashed the van to pieces and sent them all to the emergency ward, if any of them weren't already killed on impact.
    • Everyone survives the crash landing the "Sly Star Two" (which destroys the ship) without any noticable injuries.
    • All the men (except for Fred, Zip, and Colt) get hit in the head with ship debris and knocked out. They all wake up a few minutes later perfectly fine. In real life, if you get hit on the head so hard that one actually loses conciousness (even if it's only for a few minutes), one should probably see a doctor ASAP, as there is a high likelihood of some sort of head injury.
