Decent enough if not great
1 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a huge Scooby Doo fan, naturally I wanted to see Scooby Doo Goes Hollywood. I will admit I was a little disappointed by it, but I didn't think it was bad. The music is great and true to the style of the decade it's set in, and I liked the song sung by Fred, Daphne and Velma and the duet between Scooby and Cher(ie).

The voice work is still excellent, particularly from Don Messick, Casey Kasem and Frank Welker, and I enjoyed the spoofs on Happy Days, Charlie's Angels, Sonny and Cher and Superman. My favourite is the one on Sound of Music, which is still very funny.

The characters still have their likability. Scooby and Shaggy still make me smile and laugh, and while underused Fred, Daphne and Velma manage to not be dull.

Scooby Doo Goes Hollywood isn't perfect however. My feelings on the animation were mixed. The colours are lively and plentiful and some of the background art is nice, but the editing could have done with being more fluid and some of the character designs are not as strong as they could have been.

The concept was intriguing and it was very interesting at the start. However, the story is rather thin and predictable, and perhaps rushed too, with too much focus on the jokes and spoofs in alternative to a coherent storyline.

I was also mixed on the writing, most of the jokes and spoofs are very funny, but there are also some lame puns along the way and one or two of the spoofs due to feeling skimmed over don't quite make the grade.

All in all, a decent enough special, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. 6/10 Bethany Cox
