Weekly Poll #27
I gotta say mine is Shreako for the sense of humor. And yeah, I know Uncle Hide-and-Seeko wasn't a Boo Brother, but you gotta love that name so I included him as an option just for fun haha.
Here's the results from last week's poll:
Who is your favorite character?
Scooby-Doo - 36
Shaggy - 16
Fred - 8
Daphne - 7
Velma - 7
Decades ago, WB cut an approximately minute long scene from “The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair” (The New Scooby-Doo Movies) featuring Batman and the gang right before they enter the toy factory at the end of the episode. After 34 years of the scene being lost, not even included on the DVD or digital releases, the scene was discovered on a VHS tape recording that a fan had of the episode from 1986, the last time this scene was ever aired on TV. Check it out above!
Fun Fact of the Week #296
In Scooby-Doo and Guess Who's "A Run Cycle Through Time," at one part in the episode, Velma appears to be riding a unicorn on the carousel time machine in close up shots. However, in long-distance shots, she is shown to be riding a bicycle.
In addition, as a minor bonus fun fact, the days of the week given for each of the dates are incorrect. July 9, 3535 is a Tuesday, not a Thursday, and October 10, 4646 is a Saturday, not a Friday as it is said in the episode.

SCOOB! Tops Digital Charts
According to IndieWire, SCOOB! topped the digital charts this weekend by instantly debuting at #1 on both the Amazon and iTunes charts, and has stayed there ever sense. By comparison, Trolls 2, which is commonly cited as being the first film during this pandemic to take off on digital platforms, took two days to get to #1. Could this mean a SCOOB! sequel?
Fun Fact of the Week #295
Many people erroneously think that The Scooby-Doo / Dynomutt Hour included the only 16 episodes of Dynomutt that were made. However, Dynomutt spun off and became its own show for a four-episode season 2 (before being cancelled), which ran alongside The Scooby-Doo Show season 2. These episodes, all named after the respective villains, were titled "Beastwoman," "The Glob," "Madame Ape Face," and "Shadowman."
