Scooby Doo Rocks!

'Scooby Doo and the Witch's Ghost' introduced the Hex Girls, comprised of Luna (voiced by Kimberly Brooks), Dusk (voiced by Jane Wiedlin), and Thorn (voiced by Jennifer Hale). While the movie had the usual Scooby Doo camp, the movie also takes an extremely sympathetic (though terribly focused) view to Wiccan philosophies and viewpoints. The Hex Girls are self-described as "Eco-Goths", and one of their songs has the refrain "to love the earth/is all we desire". Sarah Ravencroft is described as using her Wiccan healing powers to help sick people "who could not afford good health care". There is also much focus on the wrong done by discriminating against Sarah Ravencroft's peaceful wiccan religion.

Their second song is the best of the two (so says I).

The other thing I loved about this movie is that Tim Curry was the voice for Ben Ravencroft. Tim has such a cool sound, and I have so many other memories from his other work when I hear his voice.
