'Scooby Doo' Better off animated? Freddie Prinze Jr., Matthew Lillard, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Linda Cardellini were swell in the live-action "Scooby Doo" film and its sequel. But their concepts were great because they had excellent templates. The wackiness, the spookiness, the music and the big-name guest stars (Harlem Globetrotters, Jonathan Winters or even JC Chasez, top image at right) were mimicked on the big screen, but they failed to match. Verdict? Ranimated, raggy Warner Bros.
