For those that say a Scooby-Doo type gang of mystery solving kids could never happen in real life, think again.
In Roseville, CA last Sunday, September 30, a 97 year old woman went missing, and the local police announced the missing person case over social media and loudspeakers around the town.
Just when the situation seemed hopeless, four kids that were 10 and 11 decided to take it upon themselves to search for the missing woman. Pictured above, these kids (from left to right) are Makenna Rogers (age 10), Hope Claiborne (age 11), Kashton Claiborne (age 11), and Logan Hultman (age 10).
Hopping on their bikes, the kids spent over two hours looking for this missing woman. Suddenly, they locate her and immediately call 911 to report their find, and wait with her to make sure the first responders are able to safely bring the frazzled old lady back to her home.
Back home, they have a mini-party with goldfish crackers to celebrate their heroic act.

For the Teen Titans GO! Halloween special this year, the Scooby gang will be crossing over with the Teen Titans GO! characters. The episode, called "Cartoon Feud," will have a villain called Control Freak forcing the Titans and the Scooby gang to compete on Family Feud together.
It's the first time that Scooby and Teen Titans have crossed over in television, though Scooby did previously crossover with Teen Titans Go! in the Scooby-Doo! Team Up comic series in issue #4.
The episode will air on Friday, October 4 at 5pm central in the United States, according to AnimationMagazine (note that the source incorrectly says it is a Monday, though October 4 is indeed a Friday).
You can watch a preview clip of the episode below:
Check out this exclusive clip from Italian Vanity Fair, for the upcoming Guess Who episode featuring Whoopi Goldberg, "The Nightmare Ghost of Psychic U!" Note that the clip is fully in Italian. The Nightmare Ghost is also shown in the clip, and looks almost like a Slenderman-type creature. Looks like a great episode!
Thanks to The Cop for letting me know about this!

A wailing banshee is scaring all of the dogs out of a neighborhood dog park. Its high-pitched pealing has both canines and humans on the run. If Scooby and the gang don’t scoop up this menace soon, the park may just shut down, leaving all the pups parkless and with no place to go.

Here's a sneak preview of the season finale of Guess Who, premiering on Boomerang this Thursday! Not sure if it's just me, but the animation looks a bit different on this one, as does the vibe of the episode in general. I will say I'm getting sick of having the gang being related to the guest stars, as it's mentioned in another clip that Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth is Daphne's uncle. That seems like lazy writing to me.
Thanks to the episode airing early in Italy, we have the title of the upcoming Whoopi Goldberg episode, which is "The Nightmare Ghost of Psychic U!" Some screenshots were also provided from the episode on an Italian website.
On October 1, the same day the Return to Zombie Island DVD is being released as a non-Walmart exclusive, WB will be releasing a double feature including both Zombie Island films.
You can pre-order the DVD here.
Thanks to Stephen Cribb, we have the name of what will probably be the next DTV. Awhile ago, rumors were circulated about a Scooby-Doo film about King Arthur, as it was posted on a LinkedIn page of a known WB executive.
A quick Google search of "Scooby-Doo and King Arthur" pulled up actor Greg Ellis's official website, in which he has an article saying he recently completed recording lines for a DTV called "Scooby-Doo in King Arthur's Court." Greg Ellis will be voicing the villain in this film, as he directly mentions saying the line“And, I would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling kids and that mangy mutt of yours!"
Thanks so much again to Stephen Cribb on the site for prompting me to Google the title and find Greg's page. Stay tuned for more info!
Yesterday, some animation designs from the 2020 theatrical movie film SCOOB! were leaked from an animation convention in LA.
We still don't have any info about Daphne's character design in the film, but what do you think of the new designs for Fred and Velma?
Check out this sneak preview from tomorrow's Guess Who episode, "Quit Clowning!" featuring Kenan Thompson!
