Entertaining enough, but not the best of Scooby-Doo moments...
13 October 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Big Top Scooby-Doo!" from 2012 is one of the most generic and mediocre of all the animated Scooby-Doo movies that I have seen to date. With that being said, don't get me wrong, because it is not a bad or a poor movie. It is just a movie that offers nothing new or really stands out from all the other Scooby-Doo movies.

The storyline was fair enough, although it is as every other Scooby-Doo movie turns out to be, so nothing new there. But the story just failed to fully captivate me and entertain me as much as many of the other Scooby-Doo animated movies did.

The animation and art style in "Big Top Scooby-Doo!" was good, and very much in the spirit of the original Scooby-Doo cartoons that I grew up with on TV.

And as an animated movie then the voice acting is very important. And I will say that the acting talents were doing good jobs with their respective roles in "Big Top Scooby-Doo!". Personally I am always thrilled about having Frank Welker and Matthew Lillard do the voices for Scooby-Doo and Shaggy respectively. There were also some great guest voices in this animated movie, such as Peter Stormare and Jeff Dunham.

However, the storyline just didn't really reach out to me, and the happenings throughout the course of the storyline just didn't really spice it up to my liking. And as such, then I found "Big Top Scooby-Doo!" to be a very mediocre addition to the Scooby-Doo library. As such, then I am rating this animated movie five out of ten stars.
