"Scoob!" is a goofy and bright surprise - an imaginative reboot that respects its shaggy dog TV roots but is smart enough to add dashes, not shovelfuls, of wry pop-culture and movie references.

Beyond the improved computer animation compared to the hand-drawn origins, sequences worthy of attention are too few and very far between.
May 15, 2020
The other Hanna-Barbera characters that never quite achieved the cultural ubiquity of Scooby-Doo makes for a fun, universe-expanding tale, avoiding the cliches and story ruts that might otherwise befall yet another version of the Scooby-Doo story.

It's really no better or worse than other selections from the genre it's part of - that slice of fast-paced, brightly colored kids movie that makes no pretense of being anything other than an adequate distraction for young attention spans.

Pre-sold fans - especially fans with kids - of Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and the thud named Fred are in the bag. I don't know what to tell the rest of you.

A confounding and convoluted origin story to a pretty straightforward Saturday morning cartoon.
May 15, 2020
[A]ny hopes one might have of the film exceeding the low expectations set by its unnecessarily punctuated title should be abandoned forthwith.
May 15, 2020
It tries to do a little too much and runs too long but it's an affable mix of nostalgia and family-friendly animated action/adventure.
May 15, 2020
The result is something too confusing and scary for young viewers, and too familiar and repetitive for older kids.
May 15, 2020
The occasionally clever dialogue and the peppy voice performances are the best things about "Scoob!," but not nearly enough to overcome the loud and convoluted overall tone.
May 15, 2020
The series' trademark blend of character comedy and absurdist sight gags is in full display, served up with just the proper amount of postmodern self-awareness that adds to the fun rather than detracts from it.
May 15, 2020
There are big action setpieces, important lessons learned about friendship and lots of opportunities to slide in references to toxic masculinity and imposter syndrome and copyright infringement.
May 15, 2020
It feels like a classic Scooby-Doo mystery, and it's clear that everyone involved with the project has nothing but love for the universe they're trying to retrofit for the modern age.
May 15, 2020
"Scoob!" is a poorly written, nonsensical animated update of the Scooby gang notable for a couple of things, neither of them quality.
May 15, 2020
It's taken 51 years, but someone has finally done in "Scooby-Doo."
May 15, 2020
The overall vibe is scarily close to what happened when "The Itchy & Scratchy Show" on "The Simpsons" added Poochie, except this time the pandering is not a joke.
May 15, 2020
After a super-fun opening, it's all "Ruh-roh" from there.
May 15, 2020
What undermines "Scoob!" is not the comfort of the old but the pressures of the new, the need to sound hip, self-referential and up-to-the-minute at all times.
May 15, 2020
Scooby-Doo, where are you? The real one, I mean. The rest of this mess is just a series of nonsensical action sequences.
May 15, 2020
While a younger audience might be enthralled by the fast pace and bright colour palette, those understandably curious adults sitting nearby will find themselves watching in horror, a deep, sorrowful howl emerging.
