Your average Scooby-Doo animated movie...
11 May 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King" is certainly a movie that will appeal to the long-time fans of Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Gang.

I, however, found the 2008 "Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King" animated movie to be just another generic, run-of-the-mill addition to the Scooby-Doo franchise. It didn't stand out in any way.

Now, don't get me wrong, I am not saying that this was a bad movie or a boring movie, not at all. It just happened to be a very standard and generic animated movie that we have seen so many times before.

The animation was good and the art style was good, very much keeping up with the traditional art style that is used in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon. So on that account, there is some sense of security and familiarity to it.

As usual the voice acting was great, as it always is in the Scooby-Doo animated movies. And it is always a treat to have Frank Welker and Casey Kasem do the voices. Furthermore there are some rather great voice appearances in this particular animated movie as well, such as Tim Curry, Jim Belushi and Jay Leno.

The storyline in "Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King" was somewhat too generic and stereotypical, even for a Scooby-Doo movie, and that was the main reason why my rating of it ends on a mediocre 5 out of 10 stars.
