Fun Fact of the Week #90
In Scooby Goes Hollywood, when Velma, Fred and Daphne are reminiscing about the things Scooby used to do after he leaves to become a Hollywood star, they mention that he used to eat Scooby Snacks. However, instead of showing Scooby eating Scooby Snacks, the flashback actually showed the scene from "Spooky Space Kook" where Scooby was eating peanuts.

Fun Fact of the Week #87
A series in the style of the opening for the movie Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra Doo was nearly made.
It's recently come to my attention that my post about the S.C.O.O.B. concept art had some incorrect information in it. The picture at the top of the post above is not one of the official concept art that was presented at CinemaCon from the movie, it is actually from the Scooby-Doo and KISS DTV movie. I wanted to apologize for the confusion, and thank Arkmabat from the ScoobyAddicts forum for pointing the post out, and SpiderScooby for letting me know that I had misread his post and clarifying what he meant about the concept art.
**UPDATE** The movie will be released August 9, 2016 in the US according to IGN, who have also posted a trailer on their website.
Original Post Date: 6/1/2016
Thanks to iTunes, we have some more information about the upcoming Scooby-Doo! and WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon movie.
