Fun Fact of the Week #86
Besides voicing Shaggy's father in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Casey Kasem also voiced Shaggy's father in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Shaggy's uncle in Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!
After a very long (and still ongoing) hiatus of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, we finally know the rest of the titles for Season 1.
Here are the descriptions:
I Scooby Dooby Do (Episode 22)
The gang is honored to take part in the wedding of two close friends. But can Best Man, Shaggy, and Maid of Honor, Daphne, save their friend's perfect day before it's ruined by a tragic Ghost Bride bent on destroying everyone else's happily ever after?
El Bandito (Episode 23)
The gang heads out to a Day of the Dead festival. There, they learn the spirit of the old, legendary criminal, El Bandito, has returned to terrorize the locals. Fred becomes obsessed with solving the mystery and becoming a part of the great legend, himself.
Norse Case Scenario (Episode 24)
The gang goes on a camping trip, although they can't really agree on why. Fred's desire for the gang to get in touch with their natural instincts and hones their mystery skills, turns into on-the-job training as Viking Ghosts attack and attempt to drive them away - or worse.
Into the Mouth of Madcap (Episode 25)
Daphne agrees to watch her friend's kid, Wayne, and convinces Fred to take a night off from mysteries to go to the boardwalk amusement park. Unbeknownst to her, though, the park is being haunted by a fiendish clown, Madcap.
The People vs. Fred Jones (Episode 26, Season 1 Finale)
Fred is on trial, convicted of being the real mastermind behind all the mysteries he's solved.
Thanks to Jon Colton Barry on the ScoobyAddicts forum, we also know one season 2 title, "Some Fred Time."
Note that the order of the episodes could be switched, as this is the order they are currently airing in Australia, and occasionally CN will switch the order at the last minute.
Fun Fact of the Week #85
Note: I had inadvertently forgotten this fun fact was already posted as #61 back on December 7, 2015. I am leaving this post here for archive's sake, but for the actual Fun Fact of the Week #85, check out the re-do post.
When Scooby-Doo: The Mystery Begins first aired on Scooby's 40th anniversary, the 6.1 million viewer rating nearly doubled CN's previous record (3.9 for Star Wars: The Clone Wars premiere).

Fun Fact of the Week #84
Lefty Callahan, the culprit behind the Lady Vampire of the Bay mystery from "I Left My Neck in San Francisco," is also one of the names of the animators for Hanna-Barbera Productions.
Fun Fact of the Week #83
The third song in Scooby-Doo and the Monster of Mexico (during the pyramid chase scene) "¿Adonde Vas?" was not made for the movie as with many of the other songs in the DTV movies. The song was from Carolina Lao's third album "Carolina."
You can listen to the full song in the YouTube video above.
Fun Fact of the Week #82
In the Scooby-Doo live action movie, the opening that was used was not created until the last minute. A different, alternate opening (in the video above) featuring rapper Shaggy was almost used, but the writers decided to create a different opening at the very last minute before the movie was released in theaters.
