The middle part of this is actually enjoyable, it's just sandwiched between averageness
Not as interesting the second time around.
It isn't the worst film by any means, but 'The Shaggy D.A.' is definitely a step down from its predecessor. There are some amusing gags, the dog effects are much improved and in a few parts funnier, but the first and third acts are very slow-moving and lack entertainment.
Dean Jones plays Wilby, he is the one other positive from this as he gives a strong performance. His live-action stuff is more than decent, while his voice work for Shaggy is perfect. I have no complaints with Mr. Jones. Away from him, I don't think any of the other cast members are all that notable. Keenan Wynn (Slade) and Tim Conway (Tim) have their moments, just not enough to elevate the film in my opinion.
The middle part of this is actually enjoyable, it's just sandwiched between averageness unfortunately; despite a plot that is probably better, on paper, than the original.
In conclusion, it's nothing bad but nothing good either.
