Scooby with Batmand and Robin make a good super hero team! I'd like to have seen more of them. Anyway, this episode was really nice. A good plot, and the disappearnace of the farmhouse had me so puzzled. And the music playing in the background gave me the chills...
This is truly, the best story and plot in the entire series. I too was always intrigued by the disappearing house (like the best idea ever!) It was actually reused from "Mine Your Own Business", where it was the "Gold City Guest Ranch". It appears briefly in the beginning of that episode. Plenty of excellent dialogue and big language from both Velma and Batman. Their excellent discussion of how counterfeiting "will undermine the national economy", and that "for the sake of our world's stability, we must capture this crook here and now" was edited out of the copies Cartoon Network has been showing originally to make room for a cartoon short at the end of the show, and these prints also spread to the DVD version!
This is also Hanna Barbera's first use of DC superheroes. (Previously, they were produced by rival studio Filmation). The following year, Hanna Barbera would produce its first Super Friends show, with a teen boy, girl and dog team very similar to Shaggy, Scooby and Velma, and hour-long plots very similar to this one.
Although it was basically based off the infamous campy version of Batman, when the comics at the time were going back to their darker roots (for obvious reasons), this team up between Scooby and Bats is a lot of fun. I love seeing The Joker and The Penguin team-up, and the moving house definitely had me baffled, although I could only take so much bat related things. Bat-Milk and Cookies really? Those things sound like they'll kill you, if you have more then one.

In my opinion the best episode of the New Scooby Doo Movies. It has a mysterious and scary hooded figure, a disappearing house, and the twist of Joker and Penguin not being the bad guy. Batman and Robin are some of the best guest stars and this episode is a treat

I don't understand Batman&Robin and the Mystery Gang in this episode. They have seen Mrs. Baker in the same clothing as the villain is wearing. The other thing is that Batman&Robin were trying to rip Fred apart just because he was wearing a hood even though he was wearing his usual clothing.
