While she has made live-action appearances such as in the 1971 Disney film, The Barefoot Executive, Mrs. North was best known as the voice of Daphne Blake for over 30 years in the Scooby-Doo franchise!

She first voiced Daphne in the second season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and continued voicing the character in The New Scooby-Doo Movies, The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Show, The Scooby-Doo Show, and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo among other TV reincarnations. Her final voice performances as Daphne were in the direct-to-video films, Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico.

Jeepers, she shall be missed indeed!

My Thoughts: SCOOBY-DOO! MUSIC OF THE VAMPIRE (2012)

Well, let’s start off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Scooby-Doo and its franchise! I love the original TV series, I love most of the other TV series that followed it and are still following it, and I love the direct-to-DVD films. (What do I think of the live-action films? Well, I prefer the Brian Levant TV duology over the Raja Gosnell theatrical duology; but that’s not really saying much for either of them.)

And the focus of today’s review is one of the newer direct-to-DVD movies, “Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire”! Now if you’re like me, the first thing that comes to your mind is, “HEY! Wait a minute! They already made a direct-to-DVD Scooby-Doo film involving a vampire, ‘Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire’! How can they be so unoriginal and use the same type of supernatural creature again?! Are they telling us the same story again?!” More
