Be Cool Scooby-Doo Season 2 Finally Premieres On Boomerang Streaming Service During "Scoobtober" Event
Those of us who have been waiting for new content on the Boomerang streaming service and app have finally gotten our wishes. Last night, the service unveiled a new special event to celebrate the Halloween season, entitled "Scoobtober." To go with the Halloween theme of the event, the Be Cool Scooby-Doo second-season episode entitled "Halloween" was released onto the service, which marked the first time any second season episode has been released in the US. However, no other season 2 episodes are available to watch on the service, despite the fact that most other countries have aired some, if not almost all, of the season two episodes.
In addition to the premiere of Be Cool Scooby-Doo's second season, Boomerang has also added numerous other episodes onto their VOD service and app to celebrate the season. These episodes include the entire 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo series, "Haunted House Hang-Up" (Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?), "A Scooby-Doo Halloween" (What's New, Scooby-Doo?) as well as three new movies and specials, including "Scooby-Doo and the Spooky Scarecrow," "Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire" and "Scooby-Doo! Shaggy's Showdown." It is worth noting as well that "Shaggy's Showdown" is listed on the site as being the "world premiere" of the movie, despite that it was released on DVD nearly a full year ago. The only explanation I can think of regarding this, is that rather than airing the movie on Cartoon Network, CN/Boomerang are choosing to air the movie on the streaming service (however, I am only guessing on Boomerang's odd choice of presentation of the movie here, so the movie certainly could still premiere on CN at some point). The Scoobtober event also included the addition of several other Halloween episodes from other series, including "The Jetsons" and several movies and episodes from "The Flintstones." (A full list of the episodes from other series which have been added can be found here).
If you choose to subscribe to the service, you can watch the new episodes and all the other content at Boomerang.com. Stay tuned for more updates on the second season of Be Cool Scooby-Doo, as well as any more surprises which may occur during the month-long Scoobtober event!
