Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

I used to love the old Scooby-Doo movies as a kid. Now, they are going to bring an updated version back starting in July on Cartoon Network and the Boomerang streaming service and it's network channel later this year.

That actually looks pretty good to me. Love that itís done in a more traditional looking animation style. Iíll check it out.

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?



The gang has been a big part of my household for years, as both my sons were huge into Scooby-doo when they were younger. I'm pretty sure they'll still want to watch this when it's released.

They really enjoyed the Mystery Inc. series that aired about 10 years ago, but it only received two seasons. It had a modern animation style that many traditionalist hated, but the writing was pretty sharp.

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

Haven't enjoyed any of the recent versions. Mystery Incorporated was alright though I suppose. We by far love the oldies/classics like "Where Are You?"

This looked like it might've been good, until it started introducing a bunch of other characters like Wonder Woman and real life people like Wanda Sykes. Now I'm not sure.

The New Scooby-Doo Movies from the seventies did the exact same thing. That was the entire gimmick of the show and it featured guest stars such as the Adam West and Burt Ward Batman and Robin, The Three Stooges, and more. It also featured real life celebrities like Sonny and Cher, Dick Van Dyke, and Don Knotts. This looks to be just an updated version of the same concept. Just with a new title.

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

Yeah I know that it's a gimmick that has long since been a staple in the series. I can't really explain why, but I just wasn't ever really fond of that aspect of it besides with Don Knotts and Dick Van Dyke. As far as favorite movies, my top 3 would be "On Zombie Island", "Witch's Ghost", and "Alien Invaders".

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

The New Scooby-Doo Movies wasnít my favorite series either but I didnít mind it. My favorites were probably the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.

A Pup Named Scooby-Doo is definitely by far my daughters favorite.

Where Are You!? remains my favorite of the televised series.

A Pup Named Scooby-Doo was new when I was growing up so thatís part of why I like it. I think itís one of the better cartoons where the characters were re-done as kid versions.

I'm hoping for an episode featuring the Insane Clown Posse.

My kids were not fans of the KISS Scooby-Doo movie. That band was way before their time, and still is pretty creepy today (I remember being freaked out by their makeup and costumes when I was a young child).

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

I actually have a chance to meet one of the animators who worked on The New Scooby-Doo Movies along with other Hanna-Barbera cartoons and The Beatles: Yellow Submarine. His name is Ron Campbell. Heís got an exhibit locally today and tomorrow. Might try and go for a bit and maybe get my Blu-ray of The New Scooby-Doo Movies signed or see if heís selling any prints.

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

Just watched the first episode of this on the Boomerang app. Pretty decent for what it is. Had the look and feel of a classic Scooby-Doo cartoon to me. Not sure if Iíll keep a subscription to Boomerang or if Iíll just wait for the show to appear on Cartoon Network.
