Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Gang team up with the one and only rock band KISS in this all-new, out-of-this-world adventure. We join the Gang at Kiss World - the all-things-Kiss theme park, as they investigate a series of strange hauntings. With help from Kiss, they discover that the Crimson Witch has returned to summon the Destroyer from the alternate dimension of Kissteria. The evil duo's ghastly plan - to destroy the earth once the Crimson Witch summons the Destroyer with the black diamond. Can the Gang's cunning and Kiss's power of rock and roll save the day? Tune into this Rock and Roll Mystery for some thunderous, heavy amusement.
In the movie, the Starchild paints a picture of Daphne Blake, and a rather deliberating insulting picture of Fred Jones. In real life, painting is a hobby of Paul Stanley and he has developed a reputation as an accomplished painter. See more »
When Shaggy and Scooby are approaching the Demon as he eats, it is shown that he is eating from a platter of hamburgers and french fries. Scooby and Shaggy bump into his table, knocking the food all on the floor and angering him. The two of them put all the food back on the tray and offer it back hoping he will calm down. But now it is shown to be hot dogs and french fries, not the burgers as previously. See more »
[after watching Daphne passionately kiss the Starchild]
You know, you could've cut it off a little earlier, it was kind of gross. I mean, I was right there, I was there!
Oh I'm sorry, did you say something, "Frank"?

The film Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park is one of the best worst good bad movies in the History of the world... at least for fans of Kiss (such as me). And Scooby Doo! And Kiss!: Rock and Roll Mystery simultaneously works as an animated pseudo-sequel and an appropriate crossover with the Scooby Doo universe. Needless to say, the screenplay is irrelevant. The "monster of the week" is the Scarlet Witch, but her actions lack of logic and motivation... except for the creation of a "mystery" which must be solved by the "Scooby-gang" and Kiss, who secretly possess supernatural powers associated to their distinctive personalities: Demon, Star Child, Spaceman and Catman. The real names of the band members are never mentioned, but Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer lend their voices to the respective characters, and they do it well; I would particularly want to point out the fact that Simmons had a lot of fun with his work as the aggressive Demon, who initially hates the "Scooby-gang", even though he eventually finds out the fact they are good investigators and might help to save Kiss World, the exotic amusement park based on the music from Kiss. As for the "Scooby-gang", we have Frank Welker, Matthew Lillard, Mindy Cohn and Grey Griffin lending the voices to their traditional roles. And I would also like to mention some unusual guests in supporting roles, such as Darius Rucker, Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith and Garry Marshall; Might they be fans of Kiss, or did they just need some cents for the laundry? Anyway, I appreciated their presence, because they bring personality and enrich scenes which would otherwise be irrelevant. Scooby Doo and Kiss!: Rock and Roll Mystery can't be taken seriously as a "mystery", and maybe, not even as part of the Scooby Doo saga (even though I haven't watched various of its straight-to-DVD films, so making a comparison wouldn't be fair). The attraction offered by Scooby Doo and Kiss!: Rock and Roll Mystery begins and ends with the presence of Kiss, and only the fans of the band will be able to appreciate the uncountable details related to the life and work from that music group (including references to Psycho Circus, the old Marvel comics and the conceptual disc The Elder). Other examples: the names of some characters are straightly taken from song titles (Delilah, Shandi); Chip McGhoo's character is played by Doc McGhee (the group's veteran manager), who doesn't lose the opportunity to satirize the band's excessive commercialization, recommending the most recent Kiss commodity, such as medicinal salts and binoculars. And, of course, we have various classic Kiss songs to accompany some surrealistic "action" sequences set in a parallel dimension equally influenced by H.P. Lovecraft and Jack Kirby (Simmons is a fan of both, so it's easy to guess the inspiration for that design). In conclusion, Scooby Doo and Kiss!: Rock and Roll Mystery is very far from being a great film, but I found it a decent cultural curiosity with enough humor and allusions to keep the fans of Kiss entertained. And don't forget to watch the "easter egg" during the final credits, in which Kiss plays a song of "The Five Ascots" (the character Fred's favorite group) in a doo-wop style very different to the usual rock from the band.
