As a parent in the early 2000s, I have fond memories of Genndy Tartakovsky’s cartoons. His work on The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack came to define the period, and many parents in-the-know probably decided to check out the initial Hotel Transylvania feature due to his behind-the-scenes presence. Of course, an argument could be made that Adam Sandler, playing Dracula with hybrid human-vampire offspring, was the major draw. Sandler increases his role with a screenwriting credit on the sequel, as the family drama at the monster hotel starts to drift into Meet the Fockers territory, with Mel Brooks joining the hijinks as Vlad, the vampire elder.
