The weakest episode so far
16 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Re-watching 'The New Scooby Doo Movies' episodes in order of release/airing, a couple like "The Dynamic Scooby Doo Affair" and especially "Wednesday is Missing" have been great, others are reasonably entertaining but deeply flawed like "The Ghastly Ghost Town".

"Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hyde" is the weakest one so far. Liked this episode as a kid, but re-watching it the flaws are more apparent. There are definitely things that help make it watchable. Have always loved Shaggy and Scooby's scene stealing antics and their friendship, both of which have been such a large part of the franchise's appeal, and "Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hyde" is not exempt from that.

Of the two, Scooby makes a little more impression with some very funny moments. Some dialogue is amusing and endearingly goofy, and the Hollywood locations and sets are fun to recognise and very interesting and imaginatively done. The music is full of energy and atmosphere, with a catchy theme song, while the voice acting is fine all round.

However, the animation has never been one 'The New Scooby Doo Movies' strengths, and it is not great here, some nice colours but the drawings are less than smooth and a lot of it is sloppy. The story agreed is weak, too thin for the running time, with a lot of draggy padding, and lacks atmosphere and tight pacing. The chameleon-esque villain has far too many disguises that it's hard to keep up and they do vary in how memorable they are, Mr Hyde is the most memorable but too many of them are forgettable. It is also agreed that Duncan herself is a bit dull and annoying, not one of the show's better guest stars.

All in all, not awful, in fact pretty watchable, but it is the weakest one so far and even after watching the whole show it is likely to be a lesser episode. 6/10 Bethany Cox
