ONE of cartoon's best loved dogs, Scooby Doo, was at the New Wimbledon Theatre during half term last week in the show Scooby Doo! The Mystery Of The Pyramid.
The oversized dog, made famous with the world's favourite mystery solving gang of Shaggy, Daphne, Fred and Velma, provided plenty of laughs in the show which included classic Scooby jokes as well as songs and dances.
The Mystery Inc gang were transported to the pyramids of Egypt in their Mystery Machine for their latest adventure which included a hunt for treasure whilst outwitting three funny but creepy mummies.
They are met by Otto, an Egyptologist and friend of Velma's and his three mysterious minions. Otto is trying to solve the mystery of Pharaoh Hatchepsout’s pyramid and he asks the gang to help.
But as with the original cartoons they have to outwit the baddies to find out the truth - can they avoid being turned to stone by the terrifying Pharaoh? Can they steer clear of the mysterious mummies? And will ‘those meddling kids’ save the day?
The 90-minute show was full of fun and judging by the whoops and cheers of the younger members of the audience was a real crowd pleaser.
The songs were catchy and included the signature theme song and there were plenty of spectacular effects and some hilarious physical comedy.
The only thing missing was a bucketful of scooby snacks!
The nationwide tour runs until the end of August. Visit www.scoobydoo-live.co.uk for full listings and tour dates.
