If you could pick one villain to be in Be Cool Scooby-Doo, which one would it be (besides Elias Kingston, he's already been confirmed to be in the series)?
Mindy Cohn posted on Twitter that the next Scooby-Doo movie will be "Scooby-Doo Meets KISS" and will feature the second appearance of the famous band themselves.

Be Cool Scooby-Doo Logo
Thanks to Scoob16 over at the ScoobyAddicts forum, we have official pictures of some logos from the upcoming Be Cool Scooby-Doo series.
I also asked Jon Colton Barry, someone who is working on the new show, if there would be references to the the previous series. He answered:
"Yeah, we're playing with using certain elements from Scooby's 40+ years of history, like Elias Kingston, here and there - mostly recontextualizing them and having fun/paying homage. It's not something we're doing a lot of or being too precious about, though. We're really trying to make a brand new show that someone who has never seen Scooby Doo before (as well as someone who LOVES Scooby Doo) can enjoy - but with little winks and nods here and there for the old fans."

Fun Fact of the Week #19
Scooby-Doo was elected the official "president" of Cartoon Network for a year in 2000.
Scooby-Doo: Love Quest
With Valentine's Day today, I thought I'd do something special and give a game review for the online Valentine's-themed game, Scooby-Doo: Love Quest.
Basically, what you need to do is balance the hearts on Scooby's head and try to get them over to Fred, while watching out for the ghost.
Overall, I think the game had a creative idea, but I think it could have been more creative and less repetitive. But still, it's a fun game and I would recommend for Valentine's Day.
