This was such a fun, nostalgic episode! It was so much fun having Cher back and it's really sweet that she invited Scooby on her yacht for his birthday. The atmosphere/setting of the episode was amazing. This felt like a perfect combo of "The Secret of Shark Island" and "A Clue for Scooby-Doo." Even if they didn't officially call it a "graveyard of ships" like they did in "A Clue for Scooby-Doo," it was a really cool how they reused that concept in this episode. I noticed they also reimagined the scene from "A Clue for Scooby-Doo" where they inflate Scooby's diving suit, so it can be popped and launched at the monster. Cher's yacht also looked a little similar to the one the gang saw disappear in "A Clue for Scooby-Doo."
Cher was an all-around amazing guest star. You could definitely tell her voice aged, but nonetheless, it didn't make it any less nostalgic. She seemed a lot more friendly in this one, as she was very irritable and sarcastic in "The Secret of Shark Island," but that didn't bother me. I loved that they even mentioned their adventures from "The Secret of Shark Island" a couple times in this episode; I have to admit I wasn't expecting that and was a little worried Cher wasn't going to recognize them. It was really funny that Cher said she didn't want to deal with any more Shark Men the next time they got together haha. I kind of wondered if they'd reference Sonny at all, but given his death, it probably would have been too awkward and sad to mention.
I loved the Shark Men as well. They looked very similar to the original villains and the motive behind them dressing up was even pretty similar.
Overall, this was a wonderful episode that is definitely one of my favorites purely due to how nostalgic it was. It didn't quite make my top 10 episodes, but it was incredibly close!
