About this deal
Wedge gives an optional commentary for three deleted scenes (two of which are not fully animated) but is curiously absent for the main feature. Perhaps that's got something to do with his admission that, "We really didn't give ourselves enough time to discover the story before we started production unfortunately." Still, for those who marvelled at ambitious sequences, like Rodney's trip on the cross-town express, the technical bods give an enlightening feature commentary, explaining how they got to grips with complicated geometry to achieve "a constantly moving city". Warner Bros' What's New, Scooby-Doo? Never Before Seen Episode: Go West, Young Scoob (47 minutes at Fox/MGM) Other interactive features include Robot Dance, showcasing a repertoire of crazy machine moves sure to keep the kids amused (even John Travolta couldn't pull off flashy routines like the "Oil Spill" and "Disco Lights"). Meanwhile, older kids can test their memory banks in the Fender Photo Shoot game. Capping things off is an animated short starring Aunt Fanny (Jennifer Coolidge), but sadly this five-minute skit manages to be just as muddled as the main feature.

That is except for Jim Broadbent, who reveals that he was persuaded to voice a female character (Madame Gasket) only after producers sent him an animated short with dialogue lifted from his scenes as the dastardly Harold Zidler in Moulin Rouge.
