I'm happy to announce that there has been a gigantic update to the Boomerang streaming service and app! For Halloween, Boomerang is bringing back their annual "Scoobtober" event on the streaming service. This year, however, the event is extra special as Boomerang has added nearly every single Scooby-Doo episode ever to the streaming service. This even includes the episodes which have never been released on DVD, such as the Scrappy-Doo and Get A Clue series. During the event, Boomerang also finally added the final 11 episodes of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, which were previously unreleased in the United States besides a one-time airing back in March on the Boomerang network, which was in an overnight time slot without promotion.
The content added includes the entire series additions of The Scooby-Doo Show, Scooby's All Star Laff-a-Lympics, The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo Puppy Hour (under "Scooby & Scrappy-Doo"), The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show (also under "Scooby & Scrappy-Doo"), The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries , Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue! and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. The remaining missing episodes of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show, What's New Scooby-Doo, and Be Cool Scooby-Doo were also added.
15 episodes from The New Scooby-Doo Movies were also released, however, they are the same episodes which were released on The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies DVD. The remaining nine episodes are the only episodes in the entire Scooby franchise that were not added to the service. The episodes including The Addams Family, Phyllis Diller, Sandy Duncan, Sonny & Cher, Davy Jones, Jerry Reed, Josie and the Pussycats, Jeannie & Babu, and Tim Conway still have issues regarding contract negotiation which did not allow Boomerang to add them to the service.
This is a huge day in the history of the Scooby-Doo fandom, as fans were unable to previously legally watch many of these episodes due to them not being released on DVD or other streaming platforms. I really hope this leads them to start releasing some of the missing episodes on DVD at a faster pace!
Though there was a ton of Scooby content added to the service with the event today, there are still several movies and specials missing in addition to the 9 episodes of The New Scooby-Doo Movies. Besides LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash, which was also added to the service today, here is a complete list of the missing films:
