Amazon has just posted the back cover art for Be Cool Scooby-Doo Season 1 Part 1, revealing that the first thirteen episodes will be on the set, in the order they were in for the US.
12/19 Update: Amazon has now posted a new front cover of the DVD with the title "Be Cool Scooby-Doo: Spooky Kooky Fun," so the title may have changed. Thanks to Scoob16 for the info!

I'm super happy that they're doing this marathon, but a bit annoyed that there's not a lot of variety with the series or episodes. Do they really need to play "Mystery 101" and "Party Like It's 1899" three times in the same marathon? They could have easily played "Grand Scam" or episodes 10-13 and 15, which are all missing from the marathon. Either way, I'm really looking forward to the marathon and will definitely watch it!

Fun Fact of the Week #62
Scooby-Doo Where Are You #7's original release was recalled due to an age-inappropriate ad for "The Absolute V for Vendetta," which is a comic series about violence and revolt against the UK Government.
Last July, it seemed that the WrestleMania Mystery sequel would be cancelled after Hulk Hogan was fired from WWE after publicly going on a racist rant about another wrestler. However, according to Amazon UK, the movie is indeed still happening, and will be released on August 8, 2016 in the UK. The movie will probably be released sometime around then in the US as well, meaning that hopefully we will get another DTV in the spring.
Fun Fact of the Week #61
The original airing of Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins set a record high in ratings for Cartoon Network (6.1 million), beating out the previous record (3.9 million) held by Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
After the abrupt cancellation of "Scary Christmas" last Monday, it appears Cartoon Network will finally air the Be Cool Scooby-Doo Christmas special on Thursday, December 10 at 6:00pm central. Unfortunately, it appears CN still won't be giving us the "return" of Be Cool they promised for November 30, only "Scary Christmas" will air, and then there will be at least another 2-week hiatus according to TVGuide.
I'm really hoping the episode will actually air this time, since the last two new episodes have been cancelled at the last moment.
