Beginning at 9:00am (CST) on Halloween, Boomerang US will be airing a marathon of Scooby-Doo movies all morning and afternoon to celebrate the holiday. The marathon kicks off at 9:00am with "Scooby-Doo and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery," and continues on with "Scooby-Doo! FrankenCreepy," "Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness," "Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery," "Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright," and closing with "Scooby-Doo 3: The Mystery Begins."
Here's the full schedule of when each movie will be airing (all times listed in the US central time zone):
9:00am - Scooby-Doo and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery
11:00am - Scooby-Doo! FrankenCreepy
1:00pm - Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness
3:00pm - Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery
5:00pm - Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright
7:00pm - Scooby-Doo 3: The Mystery Begins
In addition to the marathon, two Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episodes will also air that day on Boomerang. "Stand and Deliver" and "The Man in the Mirror" will be shown back-to-back at 4:00am and 4:30am, respectively.
A full schedule of all the other non-Scooby Halloween episodes which are being shown that day can be found on Zap2it.
According to TVGuide UK, 3 new Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! episodes will finally be premiering on Boomerang UK for the Halloween season. On Saturday, October 21, the two-part finale, "Professor Huh? Part 1 and 6 3/4" will air on the network at 8:30 - 9:30am, with a repeat airing at 3:30 - 4:30pm, and "Halloween" will air the very next day, on Sunday, October 22 at 8:30 - 9:00am, with another repeat at 3:30 - 4:00pm.
As of currently, here is still no scheduled air date for the 16th through 24th episodes ("American Goth" - "Pizza O'Possum's" / "The Curse of Half-Beard's Booty") of BCSD. However, the moderator who posted the first 14 episodes on ShareMania, has mentioned that they saw an ad that new episodes would begin November 1 in the UK, so presumably the rest of the episodes (other than the missing episode 24, which I'm not sure when it will air) will aired then. Thanks Dfrazzer for the info!

Following yesterday's new of the final episode title reveal, today, Boomerang has made "Halloween" completely free to watch on their streaming service without any subscription. This is currently the only episode on the entire service which can be viewed without a monthly or yearly subscription. In addition, three more Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? episodes, "That's Snow Ghost," "Nowhere to Hyde" and "Mystery Mask Mix Up" are now available on the service (though those require a subscription to watch). The free "Halloween" episode can be watched here, however, the episode can only be watched at this link which is from the "Scoobtober Premieres" section of the service. Oddly, the service has created two different versions of the episode, with no differences in content, other than the fact that one titled "Halloween" and the other titled "Halloween (Special)," the latter of which being the only version which is available to watch for free. So, if you haven't seen the episode yet and don't have a subscription to the service, be sure to check it out while it's still free!
Thanks to Zap2it, we finally have the title of the final missing episode, which will be comprised of two 11-minute shorts. Zap2it lists "Pizza O'Possum's" and "The Curse of Half-Beard's Booty" as the final unreleased episode, which is actually intended to be the third-to-last episode according to head writer Jon Colton Barry, with "Professor Huh? Parts 1 and 6 3/4" being the intended two-part series finale. Zap2it also gives us a description for this episode, "Shaggy drags the gang to a childhood arcade where he's determined to finally collect enough tickets to win the prize he's wanted since he was a boy." However, the description is vague enough that it could be for either one of the 11-minute shorts.
One thing which is probably important that I note, however, is that the head writer, Jon Colton Barry, has revealed that "The characters and comedy are nothing like what we had established for two years." That being said, Jon has also stated that he had "nothing to do with the first 11 min and barely anything to do with the second." This, and some other comments he has made on the ScoobyAddicts forum, allude to the fact that the episodes are simply experimental and have quite a different feel than we are used to for the show.
In addition, you may notice in the Zap2it page which I linked to, that an airdate of November 13th is given. Unfortunately, Zap2it has been very poorly reporting on the dates that the episodes air, to the point where in fact none of the season 2 airdates they listed are factually correct, and it's essentially become a completely free-for-all as to if the dates they list are for other countries, or completely made up. While everyone is welcome to their own opinions and interpretations of what this date means, my personal thoughts are to take the November 13 date with a grain of salt, seeing as none of Season 2 dates listed are correct, and many of the season 1 dates aren't correct either. However, it is possible that the November 13 date could be for Australia, which has aired every episode other than this one.
I'll try to keep you guys up to date on any info regarding when this final unreleased episode will air. In the meantime, I'll be checking my international TV guide sources on a regular basis to see if the episodes are airing there at all. But in case you all want to do a bit of investigating yourselves, these are the sources I've been getting most of my information at regarding the international air dates. TV Guide UK lists the entire Boomerang schedule for seven days out, and this Foxtel spreadsheet (which I had to do quite a bit of searching to find!) lists every single Be Cool, Scooby-Doo episode airing for the next two weeks in the entire country of Australia.
Stay tuned for more info! :)
Earlier this week, the official Scooby-Doo website added 3 brand new games to their website. These games include "Scooby-Doo! Sneaky Crew," "Scooby-Doo! Monster Truck" and "Scooby-Doo! Creeper Chase." Sneaky Crew has you (the player) trying to create a path of Scooby Snacks to follow to lead Scooby away from an evil robot, which as a special Easter egg, has the same design as Charlie the Robot from the classic Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? episode "Foul Play in Funland." Monster Truck allows you to build your very own customized Scooby-Doo monster truck and test it out, while attempting to not let your truck fly off the racetrack or flip over. The final game, Creeper Chase, is very reminiscent of a game which was out many years ago (though unfortunately has been since removed) entitled "Run for Your Rife," in which you had to run away from the Camp Scare villains, the Woodsman, the Fishman and the Spectre of Black Canyon (and in a bonus level with a special code, you also could unlock a bonus level in which you had to outrun a tidal wave flooding the camp). The more recent game, which you can play on the Zoinks Points website, Race to WrestleMania also mirrors this. Taking on a similar premise, in this game, you have to outrun the Creeper and collect coins along the way. You can play Sneaky Crew, Monster Truck and Creeper Chase all at these links to the official WB Scooby-Doo site.
You can also check out information on these three games more in detail at the updated version of the Internet Games page!
Reader's Note: Those who read the original post will notice that one game "Be Cool Scooby-Doo: Spooky Snack Scare" is now no longer included in this post. This is due to the game having several glitches, including some which caused the game to completely crash. Until those glitches have been fixed, I've removed the game from this post and the Internet Games page.
According to Amazon, a special double feature edition of the LEGO Scooby-Doo films will be released next Tuesday, October 10. The set will include both feature-length films to date, which are "LEGO Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood" and this year's "LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash." Special features will include two of the original Blowout Beach Bash DVD's bonus episodes, "Go Away Ghost Ship" from the original series, "Scooby-Doo! Where Are You" as well as "Party Like It's 1899" from the most recent series, "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!"
Be Cool Scooby-Doo Season 2 Finally Premieres On Boomerang Streaming Service During "Scoobtober" Event
Those of us who have been waiting for new content on the Boomerang streaming service and app have finally gotten our wishes. Last night, the service unveiled a new special event to celebrate the Halloween season, entitled "Scoobtober." To go with the Halloween theme of the event, the Be Cool Scooby-Doo second-season episode entitled "Halloween" was released onto the service, which marked the first time any second season episode has been released in the US. However, no other season 2 episodes are available to watch on the service, despite the fact that most other countries have aired some, if not almost all, of the season two episodes.
In addition to the premiere of Be Cool Scooby-Doo's second season, Boomerang has also added numerous other episodes onto their VOD service and app to celebrate the season. These episodes include the entire 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo series, "Haunted House Hang-Up" (Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?), "A Scooby-Doo Halloween" (What's New, Scooby-Doo?) as well as three new movies and specials, including "Scooby-Doo and the Spooky Scarecrow," "Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire" and "Scooby-Doo! Shaggy's Showdown." It is worth noting as well that "Shaggy's Showdown" is listed on the site as being the "world premiere" of the movie, despite that it was released on DVD nearly a full year ago. The only explanation I can think of regarding this, is that rather than airing the movie on Cartoon Network, CN/Boomerang are choosing to air the movie on the streaming service (however, I am only guessing on Boomerang's odd choice of presentation of the movie here, so the movie certainly could still premiere on CN at some point). The Scoobtober event also included the addition of several other Halloween episodes from other series, including "The Jetsons" and several movies and episodes from "The Flintstones." (A full list of the episodes from other series which have been added can be found here).
If you choose to subscribe to the service, you can watch the new episodes and all the other content at Boomerang.com. Stay tuned for more updates on the second season of Be Cool Scooby-Doo, as well as any more surprises which may occur during the month-long Scoobtober event!

Some of you may remember that VideoETA, a DVD and Blu-Ray announcement site, had months ago originally listed the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Season 1, Part 2 set for release on March 28, 2017. In early March, VideoETA removed the March 28th date from their site, listing an updated December 12th release date for the set. It seems the DVD set has been delayed once again, as VideoETA has now completely deleted the original listing from their site. At one point, Amazon also listed "2017" as the set's release date on their site, which has now been removed and replaced with a "Currently unavailable: We don't know when or if this item will be in stock" message. It is unknown why the set was delayed once again, however, one possible reason is that WB wants to promote the show only on the Boomerang app and VOD service, rather than having the show available on multiple platforms for people to watch.
