Of all of the Draculas that appear between 1984 and 1988, the king of vampires is voiced by Hamilton Camp in both "A Halloween Hassle at Dracula's Castle" and Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf. The only instance where Dracula is not voiced by Hamilton Camp is in Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School, where he is voiced by Zale Kessler. Interestingly, Hamilton Camp voiced Phantasma's father in Ghoul School, so it wasn't a matter of him being unavailable.
Here's a link to the original poll, as well as the results.
Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate, both our poll and fun fact this week are going to be Ghoul School themed! Our results for last week's poll to determine people's favorite Halloween film were extremely close! Goblin King won by a narrow margin with 31 votes. The two most recent Halloween films, Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat tied for a super close second, each getting 30 votes. Rock and Roll Mystery came in fourth by a large margin, only getting 7 votes.
A lot of people have been sharing in the comments that they're doing Scoobtober marathons to celebrate Halloween. In addition to my yearly rewatch of all of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes, I have a decent-sized Scooby-Doo marathon that I watch every Halloween. Many of them are Halloween themed, but others are just random episodes that I really like or I feel are highlights of the franchise. Because my schedule has been somewhat busy, and I also try to watch a Treehouse of Horror every day as well, I typically watch one episode or film a day throughout the entire month of October (I usually save the films for the weekends). Sometimes I dedicate time to sit down and devote all my attention to an episode, but there are other times where I just have it on in the background if I need to get something else done. Everyone sharing their lists gave me the idea to share my own list for those that are interested!
(Note that I don't necessarily watch it in this exact order every year, but I always tend to watch the same episodes and this is my schedule for this year)
October 1 - Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School
I always love starting the marathon with my favorite Scooby-Doo movie. Despite not being completely Halloween themed, there is a brief Halloween scene with the parents, so I always try to incorporate into my marathon.
October 2 - Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers
This is one I always try to watch every single year. Even though it's not specifically Halloween related, the spooky soundtrack of this one never fails to get me into the Halloween spirit.
October 3 - Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner
This is one of the most classic Scooby-Doo haunted house episodes I can think of! This is one I always try to incorporate into my marathon.
October 4 - Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo! / Scooby-Doo and the Spooky Scarecrow
I wanted to make sure I had time scheduled to watch the movie on the day it came out! :) Also, I wanted to include Spooky Scarecrow as a Halloween special, even though I think it's kinda mid quality-wise.
October 5 - The Headless Horseman of Halloween
Our first Halloween episode of the bunch! This is one of the most classic Halloween episodes.
October 6 - That's Monstertainment
Given this is parodies one of the most famous horror movies of all time, not to mention that Zomba is one of the creepiest Scooby villains out there, this is a must watch for the Halloween season!
October 7 - To Switch a Witch
Another Halloween classic!
October 8 - Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf
Our third Superstars 10 movie to finish out the bunch. I always watch all three of the 1980s films every October.
October 9 - Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo!
This is a newer addition to my marathon, and I didn't watch it last year, so this will only be the second year I've watched it. As I've said in the comments for this week's poll, I know some people don't enjoy this due to the extended car chase
October 10 - The Mystery of Haunted Island
This is not an episode I always watch every year, but I did this year. In addition to the regulars, I always include a few extra episodes I want to see or haven't watched in a while.
October 11 - Vampire Bats and Scaredy Cats
While this isn't a Halloween episode, it feels like something out of a horror movie! I always like watching these darker episodes around Halloween time.
October 12 - The Vampire Strikes Back
I try to mix it up and include episodes from different series. This is another one that I don't watch every year, but I chose to watch it this year because I was in the mood for some Hex Girls content.
October 13 - A Scooby-Doo Halloween
One of my favorite Scooby Halloween episodes, and Halloween specials in general.
October 14 - Mystery of the Missing Mystery Solvers
I decided to throw in a really random one this year just for fun. It'd been a long time since I'd seen this episode!
October 15 - Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King
This never fails to get me in the Halloween mood every year. This is my favorite of the Scooby-Doo Halloween movies.
October 16 - Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
It would be a major oversight not to watch this one! This is the darkest Scooby-Doo content out there IMO.
October 17 - The Loch Ness Mess
If you know me at all, it should be no surprise that this episode is here given it's my favorite haha.
October 18 - Haunted House Hang-Up
I tend to be drawn towards watching haunted house episodes during this time.
October 19 - Ghost Who's Coming to Dinner?
Another Halloween classic. This is a really fun one.
October 20 - A Night of Fright Is No Delight
As I mentioned, I tend to be drawn towards haunted house episodes during this time, and this is one of the most classic ones I can think of.
October 21 - Night on Haunted Mountain
Another random one I don't do every year, but it'd been a while since I'd seen it so I decided to watch this. I really enjoyed it!
October 22 - Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra Doo
I've been really enjoying this one lately with my fanfic!
October 23 - SCOOB!
I really enjoyed SCOOB! and although I don't anticipate it becoming a normal part of my marathon, it was fun to give this a rewatch.
October 24 - Halloween
This is such a great episode of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! In my opinion, this episode did the Baba Yaga concept just as well as SDMI.
October 25 - The Secret of Shark Island
This is one of my favorite New Scooby-Doo Movies episodes. I love the creepy atmosphere of the gang being trapped on the island in the abandoned hotel!
October 26 - Night Terrors
This Shining inspired episode felt perfect to watch around Halloween!
October 27 - Doo Not Disturb
Had to make some time for one of my favorite Be Cool episodes!
October 28 - Scoobygeist
I've always appreciated this New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show short. It was really well written and the house was genuinely creepy! This is another episode I don't watch every year.
October 29 - Wednesday Is Missing
A very rare episode, but a classic that I always enjoy watching every Halloween.
October 30 - Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost
While not a specifically Halloween related movie, this film feels like it perfectly captures the essence of fall.
October 31: A Halloween Hassle at Dracula's Castle
I tend to watch this one every single year on Halloween. It's not only one of my favorite Halloween episodes, it's one of my favorite episodes of the entire franchise, as you recently saw in my favorite episodes/movies list.
I hope you enjoyed reading my marathon schedule! If you do a Scoobtober marathon every Halloween, I would love to see your list in the comments and compare notes! :)
I'm sure some of you are wondering if this post is a joke based on the title. Surprisingly, it is not. Glamlite Cosmetics has made the first ever Scooby-Doo make-up collection. The makeup is mainly tones of purple and green although there are some blue, yellow and green tones as well.
The makeup collection will include "Ruh-Roh Raggy!" Eyeshadow, "Scooby-Doo Batscara" (mascara with a spooky name), "Creeps and Crawls" Eyeshadow, Duochrome Highlighter, and three types of lipstick: "Zoinks," "Jeepers," and "Ruh-Roh." The sparkly Duochrome Highlighter will be sold for $18 and will be in 3D packaging.
The "Creeps and Crawls" and "Ruh-Roh Raggy!" Eyeshadow will be sold for $20. The "Ruh-Roh Raggy!" Eyeshadow includes ten bold matte and metallic green eyeshadow shades, and will feature a picture of the Creeper on the box. The "Creeps and Crawls" Eyeshadow will feature a picture of the witch from "Which Witch Is Which?" on the box, and includes matte purple and blue colors. If you want to buy both pallettes, a bundle of both is available for $36, which is $4 off of the price of buying both separately.
The Batscara has a picture of Dracula from "A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts" on the front of the box. It volumizes, curls, lifts and lengthens with a deep black color. The package is advertised as being "Dracula inspired" lol.
Lastly, the lipstick trio of Zoinks, Jeepers and Ruh-Roh come in a trio for $26, or individually for $10. All of the makeup and lipstick is vegan and cruelty-free.
"Scooby-Doo Bat Eyes" Eyeliner is also available for $15 in a black color.
The "Haunted Eyelashes" package enhance the length and volume of normal eyelashes, and can be purchased for $12. Bat Eyes and Haunted Eyelashes can also be bought together in a "Eye Duo" package for $26.
The collection is listed as being in "extremely high demand" on Glamlite's website, so there are shipping delays of up to three weeks. The entire set is available for $115 as a bundle, but you can also get a limited edition Scooby-Doo makeup box to store it all in for an extra $10 ($125 in all). The make-up is listed on their website as being scare-proof, so you don't have to worry about redoing your makeup should you get scared while wearing it lol. You can purchase any items from the collection on Glamlite's website.
Thanks to Greybishop for sharing this information with me!
In Scooby-Doo! Pirates Ahoy, there's a glaring error with an assertion that Velma makes. When the hologram of the U.S.S. Cyclops goes by, Velma exclaims that it is impossible because the ship has been sunk for over one hundred years. At the time of the film's release, this was incorrect. In real life, the U.S.S. Cyclops was sunk in March 1918. It was assumed to be either lost at sea or sunk by the Imperial German Navy.
Thanks Mr. Neither for coming up with this week's fun fact!
A big thank you to Shadowscooby for coming up with our Halloween poll this year! I really debated including Ghoul School since there is a brief scene where the Grimwood Girls celebrate Halloween with their fathers. I chose to leave it out so that the movies that were completely centered around Halloween could get the focus. In addition, I know Warner Brothers marketed Scooby-Doo! FrankenCreepy as a Halloween movie, but the movie does not make mention of Halloween, so I did not include that here either.
It seems like last week's results were pretty spread out, but there was one option that took a clear lead!

2022 is quickly coming to a close, so it's time to take a look at the Scooby-Doo comic being released in January 2023, courtesy of GamesRadar+. If you've ever wondered "what would it be like if Batman had an adventure at the beach?", then you're in luck this month haha.
THE BATMAN & SCOOBY-DOO MYSTERIES #4

Batman can't be everywhere at once, so when a ghostly problem in Gotham resurfaces in nearby Beach City, the Scooby gang gets to play tourist. But when the action turns spooky, they need the Dark Knight to hit the beach with them!
There's been a lot of news with Velma recently with the NYCC panel recently, so much in fact that there are a few things I've missed reporting on. Scoobylover amazingly compiled a ton of information about everything that's been released from the show, so I wanted to make this post to fill in the gaps and report on some of the information from the NYCC that I wasn't aware of until now.
During the NYCC panel on October 6, series creators Mindy Kaling and Charlie Grandy said the show could be best described as a crime show with elements of a teenage sitcom. Mindy also revealed some vague details about plots for two of the episodes. There will be an episode centered around prom, and another about a "fog festival."
Mindy mentioned that Velma will be portrayed as a high school outcast who is a bit snarky. She says that she is looking forward to showing an Indian father-daughter relationship in a different way than it has traditionally been done in the past.
A Twitter thread has also revealed the entire recurring cast, except for Ken Leung whose character is still unknown.
Thanks so much again to Scoobylover for providing all this information!
T.J Buzby and his brother Rufus are extremely close in appearance to what their voice actor Sorrell Booke looked like in real life. It is likely that those two characters were intentionally drawn as a caricature of Sorrell.
In addition, Sorrell Booke is interestingly most famous for playing another corrupt politician, Boss Hogg in The Dukes of Hazzard.
On another random note, this video came up when I was researching this fun fact and I have to admit the title amuses me to no end lol. I don't particularly find the content of the video to be super funny, but just the fact that somebody took the time to make a video like this is hilarious haha.
I decided not to include every single episode with Vincent's castle from 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, since there are already so many options as it is.
"A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts" won last week's re-do poll for favorite Universal Monster episode, getting 22 votes! "A Halloween Hassle at Dracula's Castle" came in second with 10 votes. Both of the 1988 movies, Ghoul School and Reluctant Werewolf, tied with 8 votes. "Super Scary Movie Night" was fourth with five votes, and "The Ghoul, the Bat and the Ugly" was sixth place with three votes. As for, "Who's Minding the Monster?", the answer to that question is apparently nobody, because that episode came in dead last with zero votes!
