Update: The last title has been revealed! It will be called "The TV and Movieland Monsters!" and will guest star Carol Burnett.
The DStv guide has given us some brand new episode titles, as well as one new guest star and description! "Legend of the Gold Microphone!" will be episode 47, airing on February 22. "Falling Star Man!" will be episode 48, airing February 24. No guest star or description is listed for either of those two one, but I would assume "Falling Star Man!" is the KISS episode. Another episode, "Dark Diner of Route 66!" will air February 25 feature Axl Rose from the band Guns & Roses. "A Haunt of a Thousand Voices" featuring the voice actors will air February 26, "Scooby-Doo, Dog Wonder" will air March 1, and "The TV and Movieland Monsters!" will air March 2. Here's the descriptions:
Dark Diner of Route 66! Scooby and Shaggy meet up with their biker buddy, AXL ROSE, on a tour of famous roadside diners along iconic Route 66.
A Haunt of a Thousand Voices! - Daphne takes the rest of the gang to meet her friend, famous voice over actor Frank Welker.
Scooby-Doo, Dog Wonder! - The gang, with help from Blue Falcon and his dog wonder, Dynomutt, are on the case of a Medusa Monster that's stealing priceless vases from millionaire art collector.
The TV and Movieland Monsters! - The gang helps Carol Burnett beta test her brand new virtual reality Movieland world.
The episodes will be airing in Boomerang Africa. These are on the DStv TV guide, however, it is somewhat hard to navigate as you can't link to it. If you'd like to view the episodes on the guide, go to February 22, 24, 25, 26, March 1 and 2 at 19:30.

Fun Fact of the Week #335
Several episodes that have not been released in the United States on DVD have been released in other countries.
"Wednesday Is Missing, the only episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies still unreleased in the US, has been released on the Scooby-Doo Meets the Addams Family VHS in Australia by Worldvision, as well as on the Scooby-Doo and the Three Stooges & Scooby-Doo and the Addams Family VHS in the UK by Lollipop.
The Scooby-Doo and the Werewolves DVD was released only in Europe, and included "Where's the Werewolf?" from The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo Puppy Hour. It's unknown why this was the only villain compilation DVD never released in the US, when all the others were (i.e. Scooby-Doo and the Pirates, Scooby-Doo and the Ghosts, Scooby-Doo and the Skeletons, etc.).
"Scoobygeist," "The Quagmire Quake Caper," "Scooby the Barbarian" and "No Sharking Zone" from The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show were released on 2019's Scooby-Doo: 50 Cartoon Collection DVD in the UK exclusively, replacing "The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller" on the US version.
Weekly Poll #64
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I actually did this poll way back when I first started this site, but it only received 12 votes since not as many people knew about the site back then. I thought it might be fun to redo this poll as a weekly poll (the original poll was just a one-off, as it was long before I started doing weekly polls) just to see how the results might be different now. The original winner was Amber at 8 votes, with Nova coming in second at 4 votes, and Roxanne and Lady Annabelle receiving no votes.
In case anyone doesn't know who one of these characters is:
Here are the results from last week:
Which episode has the best Skull Island?
Go Away Ghost Ship - 35
Vampire Bats and Scaredy Cats - 25
The Creepy Case of Old Iron Face - 18
According to a trailer just posted by DStv, new episodes of Guess Who will be airing this month in Africa! Some old episodes, such as the Gigi Hadid and Macklemore ones are listed, but the trailer does show several scenes from episodes we haven't gotten yet, like "The Tao of Scoob!", "The Lost Mines of Kilimanjaro!", "Scooby-Doo and the Sky Town Cool School!" and "Cher, Scooby and the Sargasso Sea!" We also get that bug monster again that was in the Turkey trailer despite never airing.
What is DStv, you may be asking? According to the Wikipedia article on it, "DStv (Digital Satellite Television) is a Sub-Saharan African direct broadcast satellite service owned by MultiChoice. The service launched in 1995 provides multiple channels and services to their subscribers. The majority of subscribers are in South Africa and Nigeria, with Kenya, Ghana, Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Mauritius, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Lesotho, Ethiopia, the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Swaziland and Botswana additionally served by the company." Since the promo is in English, and some parts of Africa are English speaking, there is a possibility we could be getting these episodes in English this month!
Here's hoping for the best and stay tuned for more info. Thanks to Deandre for sharing the trailer with me!

ON SALE 5/11/21
$2.99 US | 32 PAGES | FC | DC
Scooby-Doo and Batman team up to solve the mystery of a ghost who's haunting the Batcave! Even if the ghost turns out to be a fake, that still doesn't answer the real question: How did someone get into the Batcave to stage the phony phantom—and does it mean Batman's foes have cracked the secret of his true identity?!
HBO Max has just announced the release of a new Scooby-Doo series for adults, titled "Velma" via Deadline. The series will tell the origin story of Velma Dinkley, with Velma to be voiced by Mindy Kaling. Executive producing the show will be Sam Register, Howard Klein and Charlie Grandy. The show will be produced by Warner Brothers Animation. Sam Register has also worked as an executive on many of the recent Scooby-Doo series. The series will reportedly have adult themes and will not be appropriate for all audiences. No further info about release date is available at this time.
Update: The first season will be 10 episodes long. It was also described as "a humorous spin" on the classic by Warner Brothers Press. Mindy Kaling also posted on Instagram about the series, saying that it will follow "the pitfalls of high school, her budding sexuality, and a serial killer intent on murdering every popular kid in town."
Fun Fact of the Week #334
Building off of Fun Fact #273, Daphne and Velma are dressed as gothy vampires that look like Thorn and Dusk from the Hex Girls in the flashback from Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! "Halloween."
Thanks so much to Ben, who I must say has an amazing eye for references, for coming up with this fun fact!

Four brand new listings for Batman and Scooby-Doo Mysteries novels have popped up on Amazon with an August 1 release date. Michael Anthony Steele will be writing all the books, but comic artist Dario Brizuela is credited for two of the books. The titles are "The Crazy Convention Caper," "The Case of the Cursed Crop," "The Chilling Ice Rink Escapade" and "Escape from Mystery Island." Each book will cost $6.95 for the paperback version and $26.65 for the hardcover version. There's no images available, so I have no idea if these are connected to the comic series just announced in any way.
Thanks to Deandre aka Scoobyfan4ever for letting me know about these!
