Final thoughts

A shameless remake of “That’s Snow Ghost“, The New Scooby Doo Movies episode “The Ghost of Bigfoot” is a rare gem in a series of yawns.  The adaptation of Laurel and Hardy as living celebrities had enough nostalgia without becoming a parody of themselves.   Borrowing every formula that works from the original series, you can enjoy the episode through a single sitting.
