The currently unreleased Yabba-Doo episode "Bride and Gloom" from the Scooby & Scrappy-Doo Puppy Hour was released on a rare UK VHS called "Hanna-Barbera Super Stars: Rompin' Romance" in 1989.
In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, one character whose Jedi name is Sha'a Gi is based off of Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, in both name and appearance.
The video above can be watched for more information. Thanks so much to Thomas for sharing this with me!
Courtesy of Newsarama, here are the two Scooby-Doo comics which will be released in July 2019.

I'm not sure why Metamorpho is mentioned in this description, as he is from #49 which was just announced, not #37-42 like the next sentence in the solicitation mentions. I'll let you guys know if I hear anything else about this oddity!
And there you have it folks! That's what Scooby's animation will look like in the upcoming theatrical film, SCOOB!, which will be released on May 15, 2020.
Thanks to Scoobylover from the ScoobyAddicts forum, this is the translation of the plot from Annecy.org, which also gave us the animation image.
In its first (animated) feature destined for the big screen, Scooby-Doo is the hero of his own story. This adventure reveals how he and his best friend Shaggy became two of the world’s most appreciated crime solvers. It brings us back to the time where everything began, when Scooby and Shaggy, still young at the time, met up and got together with Daphne, Velma and Fred to inaugurate the Mystery Incorporated.
Asmodeus from Scooby-Doo! Curse of the 13th Ghost is in fact not an originally created name. In religious mythology, Asmodeus is name of the King of Demons (fitting I suppose, for the final ghost in the chest).
Warner Brothers and Monlove, a Canadian theater group, have partnered to put on a brand new stage show, Scooby-Doo and the Lost City of Gold. The actors will be embarking on a five-year-long tour from March 2020-2025, covering 30 different countries. This production will be very high-tech and will feature puppetry, original music, dance performances, aerial arts, interactive video, video mapping, magic tricks and live actors. There will also be "elevated winks and nods for adults" who are fans of the series, according to CartoonBrew.
The play will be directed by Pierre Boileau, designed by Guy-St-Amor (of Cirque du Soleil fame), and written by Ella Louise Ellaire and Martin Lord Ferguson.
A fifth 50th anniversary set will be released on June 4, 2019. The "4 Kid Favorites: Scooby-Doo! Summer Break" set will be a quadruple-feature film collection again, comprised of Monster of Mexico, Zombie Island, Aloha and Camp Scare. I wish they would have chosen better films, or even a better theme, as Zombie Island and Monster of Mexico do not fit this theme at all.
This 2-disc set can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
Yesterday, it was announced by ComingSoon.Net that Ken Jeong would be starring in the animated theatrical movie set for a May 15, 2020 release. Jeong will be voicing Dynomutt, while Kiersey Clemons also has joined the cast as Dee Dee Sykes of Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
Thanks to SpiderScooby, it has also been revealed that WB is once again referring to the movie as "SCOOB!" (slightly altered from the previous title S.C.O.O.B.). This was announced at WB's CinemaCon over the weekend.

It is incredibly likely that the reason which "Wednesday is Missing" cannot be released on the (Almost) Complete Collection of The New Scooby-Doo Movies is John Astin.
Though Hanna-Barbera was able to release their 1970s cartoon version of The Addams Family on DVD, this version did not include John Astin and Carolyn Jones as the voices of Gomez and Morticia, respectively. "Wednesday is Missing" was the final time Jones would ever provide Morticia's voice. However, John Astin returned to voice Gomez in a 1990s cartoon adaption of The Addams Family, which HB has also been unable to release.
Based on the live-action film released last year, a Daphne & Velma young adult novelization is being released March 3, 2020 according to Amazon.es. The novel will be written by Josephine Ruby, which most certainly a pen name based off Joe Ruby of Ruby & Spears Productions. It's also listed as "#1", so presumably, there is more coming at some point.
Here's the description:
It's the classic girl detectives like you've never seen them before! Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley have a terrifying new mystery to solve -- and this time, the culprit is far more frightening than any man in a mask....
Popular Daphne Blake and über-nerd Velma Dinkley are not friends. They aren't enemies either, but they don't have any reason to speak to each other, and that's how they prefer it. The two girls grew up together-they'd been best friends since pre-K-but when they hit middle school, Daphne dropped Velma and never looked back.
These days, Daphne's deep in the popular crowd, daughter of the richest family in town, while Velma's an outsider, hiding from the world behind her thick glasses. When they run into each other in the halls of Crystal Cove High, they look the other way.
But then Daphne's best friend, Marcy-who happens to be Velma's cousin-goes missing. A century ago, there was a wave of disappearances in Crystal Cove, and many local people believe that supernatural forces were behind it. Now the whole town believes those same forces are back . . . and up to no good. Daphne and Velma may be the only ones who can solve the mystery and save Marcy-if they can trust each other enough to try. Especially since the truth might be stranger-and scarier than either girl can imagine . . .
