Which curse is worse?...
My son adores Scooby-Doo and I grew up with the cartoons, so of course I do sit down to watch all the Scooby-Doo animated movies with my son that we come across. The latest find turned out to be "Scooby-Doo in Where's My Mummy?"
And I must say that this was actually one of the better animated Scooby-Doo movies that I have seen in a while. And it is a combination of the setting of the adventure and my love for ancient Egypt that came together in a greater unity and worked out so well for me.
This time the gang travels to Egypt to assist Velma in her archaeological work in the Egyptian deserts. Here they run afoul mummies, curses and traps in abundance.
Sure, "Scooby-Doo in Where's My Mummy?" does follow the traditional formula of how to make a Scooby-Doo adventure. So you know what you are getting yourself into here prior to sitting down to watching it. And I say that with the best of intentions, because there is something fun and lovable about these adventures. And despite every adventure is essentially the same, they are still fun to watch.
The animation is good in "Scooby-Doo in Where's My Mummy?" and the art style is very much in tune with the classic Scooby-Doo. So again, there is something comforting in the familiarity.
I did like the mummies and the design of Cleopatra. And the overall atmosphere there was in this animated movie was just great.
It is always a treat to have Frank Welker, Casey Kasem, Mindy Cohn and Grey DeLisle. Furthermore, there were some other nice voice talents to showcase their skills in this animated movie, which included Ron Perlman and Oded Fehr.
The storyline in "Scooby-Doo in Where's My Mummy?", while very much the same as all other story lines in the Scooby-Doo collection, then there was still a very good plot twist reveal at the end of the movie. I liked that particular turn of events, because I hadn't seen that one coming.
If you enjoy Scooby-Doo animated movies, then "Scooby-Doo in Where's My Mummy?" is definitely well worth the time and effort to sit down and watch. I thoroughly enjoyed this particular adventure.
