Oddly, in addition to the news earlier today regarding Cartoon Network's decision to move the series to Boomerang VOD, we now have some more info that is good news to both Australian and US Be Cool Scooby-Doo fans alike. Despite CN's decision to move the series to Boomerang VOD in the US, this decision will NOT affect other countries at all. Specifically, Australian fans of the show will get a new Season 2 episode every weekday on Boomerang AU beginning next Monday, March 20 with "Some Fred Time."
Despite that we won't be getting the episodes in the US until whenever they are put on Boomerang VOD, an Australian TV guide site named Foxtel has given us descriptions for the first six episodes of Season 2. Here they are (note I have paraphrased them slightly so I'm not directly plagiarizing information from their site):
Episode 27: Some Fred Time
Villain: Walking Shark
Fred goes to Daphne's beach house for some much needed relaxing, but a mystery pops up and the gang must solve it while hiding it from Fred.
Episode 28: There Wolf
Scooby suddenly becomes incredibly ill and is rushed to a Gothic hospital, which is haunted by a werewolf.
Note: If you remember in a previous post, I mentioned that I received info on the ScoobyAddicts forum regarding an episode involving Gothic culture. This is the goth episode I was referring to.
Episode 29: Renn Scare
Villain: Evil Court Jester
The gang visits a Renaissance fair per the wish of Velma, where they must attempt to stop an evil jester from closing down the fair forever.
Episode 30: How to Train Your Coward
Shaggy and Scooby quit the gang after they are finally tired of solving mysteries and being scared half to death. Quickly after, Fred, Velma, and Daphne are forced to hire replacements after they run into a bloodthirsty vampire.
Episode 31: Worst in Show
When a giant creature called a Hound-beast attacks a dog show, Scooby goes undercover and enters the show to solve the mystery.
Episode 32: Mysteries on the Disorient Express
Much to Fred's annoyance, the gang goes on a three-day monster-free mystery trip on a train. Little do they know, the train has endless mysteries lurking in the shadows.

Getting these descriptions has gotten me even more excited about the new season. It sounds like they will be mostly using original plots and monsters, and taking the characters in a whole new direction. Particularly, "Mysteries on the Disorient Express" and "How to Train Your Coward" sound quite interesting; so does "Some Fred Time" just because I want to know what a "walking" shark is! Though I have to say I'm most excited for "There Wolf." The premise just sounds spooky and interesting, Scooby falling ill suddenly and then the gang being alone in an abandoned hospital sounds super creepy! Admittedly, part of the reason I'm excited for this one is because of the Goth aspect of it - from what I've heard Jon Colton Barry (the show's head writer) did a bit of research into the Gothic culture including asking someone I know over the ScoobyAddicts forum a few questions related to the Goth culture, and I'm super interested to see how JCB works it into the storyline.
Anyways, that's all I know for now, but Foxtel is going two weeks in advance for the TV listings, meaning hypothetically we could have another episode summary tomorrow. I'll keep you all posted if I find anything else!
