It's only in the middle of September, and already we're looking into next year! Why's that, you ask? Because the Scooby-Doo comic solicitations for December 2021 and January 2022 were just released by GamesRadar+ today! Although these are labeled by GamesRadar as the December 2021 solicitations, we somehow got the solicitaiton for Batman and Scooby-Doo Mysteries #10 set for release in January 2022. Because Where Are You comics only release every other month, by default, this means we have the only January 2022 Scooby-Doo solicitation that there will likely be. It's amazing that we're almost to the end of the Batman and Scooby-Doo Mysteries series. Only a few issues left to be announced before it ends in March 2022!
Here are the solicits:

CBR just released a brand new clip of Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog. The film will be out this coming Tuesday, September 14, a day after Scooby's 52nd anniversary.
Thanks to Ben and The Cop for letting me know about this clip.
Thanks to some detective work by our fan spotlight today, Luigi, it seems that we may be a little closer to figuring out what Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo is. Luigi responded to a post on Facebook from an Snipple Animation employee asking for flash artists and animators, asking if there was a new Scooby-Doo series. Another employee responded, saying "It is not a series but a DTV." It's unclear if this means another Halloween DTV film (even though we just got one last year) or some type of direct-to-video special. Here's a screenshot of the original post Luigi commented on, and you can see the person's reply above.
Thanks so much to Luigi for finding this information out and sharing it with me.
On September 19, the New York Yankees are having their first ever "Scooby-Doo Day" at the stadium for their game versus the Cleveland Indians at 1:05pm. A collectible bobblehead of Scooby-Doo will be given away to the first 10,000 guests who are 14 and under. The bobblehead features Scooby wearing a Yankees jersey, with a SCOOB! logo on the platform Scooby is sitting on.
Thank you so much to Greybishop for letting me know about this and for sending me the flyer for the event that you see above!
A few brand new clips from the upcoming Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog have just been posted online from iTunes. The first clip (above) has a scene from presumably the beginning of the film. The person also posted a video of the DVD menu, which has the revamped Courage theme song from the film.
Thank you so much to Ben, The Cop and Amber Noel for sharing these links with me!
About a week ago, the back cover of Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog was revealed on a Swedish release site. However, the image was pretty blurry and not much could be made out, in addition to the fact that the cover was not in English. Today, Amazon UK has revealed the English back cover for the film (thanks to The Cop for letting me know it was posted here). Here's the description of the movie from the back cover:
An original animated feature so exciting it's scratching at the door! Comedy is unleashed when Scooby-Doo, your favorite mystery-solving mutt, teams up for the first time with Courage the Cowardly Dog. The canine colleagues sniff out a strange object in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas, the backwoods hometown of Courage and his owners, Eustace and Muriel Bagge. Soon, the mysterious discovery puts them on the trail of a giant cicada monster and her wacky winged warriors. Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy know that this job is far too big for a flyswatter. They'll need the help of the doggy duo to piece together the puzzle. Can Scooby and Courage their jitters and defeat the insect army before the whole world bugs out? Try not to get scared. We double-dog dare you!
It seems like WB has finally responded to the "Ultra Instinct Shaggy" meme that has been all over the Internet for the past several years. A scene from Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur where Shaggy fights a biker gang was mashed up on YouTube with Dragon Ball Z music, to make it seem like Shaggy was all-powerful. After the video went viral, a petition to include Shaggy in a Mortal Kombat game began gaining millions of signatures. Though the Mortal Kombat creators responded to this petition saying that it would never happen, it looks like people may have finally gotten their wish. In the latest Mortal Kombat film, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, Shaggy can be seen coming out of the WB logo punching and knocking out one of the characters. You can watch the opening scene above.
The Swedish release site CDON.se now lists the back cover image for Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog. The back cover image is admittedly a little blurry on the site, though it appears that the the text is in four different languages (none of them being English). Thanks so much to The Cop for sharing this info with me!
A brand new Scooby-Doo project has been announced! According to the DisneyTVandNews Twitter account, a production flyer for the show Hamster and Gretel lists two WB shows, Bugs Bunny Builder and Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo. Oddly, the logo uses Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? animation, so perhaps the animation for this project just hasn't been decided upon yet. This will be produced by Snipple Animation. Keep in mind that this has not been officially announced by WB yet, so it is very possible that things may change and I would recommend taking this with a grain of salt for the time being until we find out more details.
Here are the Scooby comic solicitations for November 2021. GamesRadar+'s (the site I get these solicitations from) headline for the solicitations this month bluntly states "A whole lot of Batman," so I guess we know what we're getting? haha
