Here's a sneak preview for tomorrow's episode, entitled "The Fastest Fast Food Fiend." I don't usually like going off of sites like this to announce information, but this is the title TheTVDB lists. Based on Day 24 of the Scooby 50th anniversary countdown calling Jim Gaffigan a "fast food fiend," I'm led to believe that this title is the correct one. Here's the premise for this episode, from the YouTube description of the video:
When Scooby and Shaggy compete in a fast food eating competition sponsored by the Doc Tally restaurant chain, they meet their ultimate challenge eating against none other than comedian Jim Gaffigan! And there’s a horrible monster trying to stop the whole contest from finishing. Can Shaggy, Scooby and our mystery solving gang team up with Jim Gaffigan to save the fast food competition, and themselves?
Here are the Scooby comic solicitations for November 2019, courtesy of...no one! Because there aren't any this month!
Due to Scooby-Doo! Team Up being cancelled, and Where Are You being bimonthly, there are no Scooby-Doo comics set to be released in November 2019.
This will be the very first time there hasn't been a monthly Scooby comic in 24 years. The last month without a Scooby comic was July 1995.
(Yeah, I guess there was already a fun fact this week, but this was too interesting not to share!)
Some very sad news today from the Cartoon Network website. CN has now mass-erased all the Scooby-Doo games on their website, with the exception of Scooby Trap, which was thankfully not removed like the rest of the games. Three icons for Spooky Snack Search, Ask Swami Shaggy and Scooby-Doo and the Creepy Castle are still present on the website, but the links no longer lead to anything except for a "this game doesn't exist" page. Oddly, Creepy Castle had nearly 17 million more plays than Scooby Trap, yet that one was still erased.
Quite sad that there's only one Scooby game left now. It seems silly for Cartoon Network to remove all their Scooby games, as it's not like they were causing any harm in just being there. Here's a link to what remains of the Cartoon Network Scooby-Doo website.
Update: Now even the Scooby Trap link has been deleted, leaving no games remaining on the Cartoon Network website. Anyone still interested in playing Scooby Trap or Creepy Castle can go to the Boomerang UK Website (link for each respective game).
Here's a sneak preview of tomorrow's Guess Who episode featuring Penn and Teller. "The Cursed Cabinet of Professor Madds Markson" will be posted on Boomerang tomorrow, and will air on Cartoon Network on Monday, August 19.
A few sneak previews of tomorrow's Guess Who episode, "The Scooby of a Thousand Faces" have been released!
Here they are:
Here are the premises for episodes 6-8 of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who, oddly found by just Googling the episode numbers. Thanks so much to The Cop for letting me know about this!
The Scooby of a Thousand Faces!
When a marble statue comes to life at a Greek museum, the gang becomes caught between a braying Minotaur and a sword-wielding Wonder Woman; teaming up with the Amazonian princess, the Mystery Inc. gang experiences a little rift of boys versus girls.
The Cursed Cabinet of Professor Madds Markson!
When the mystery-solving gang accepts an invitation to spend one night in the haunted Savannah Hotel in Las Vegas before its controlled demolition, they learn that magicians Penn & Teller have also accepted the challenge.
When Urkel-Bots Go Bad!
When Steve Urkel enlists the help of the gang to track down the Urkel-Bot, they stumble onto a deeper mystery with the appearance of a Technomancer who controls all the robots.
Russi Taylor, the voice of Phantasma from Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School, has just passed away at 75 years old. She died on Friday in her home in Glendale, California. Taylor also voiced Hilda Brewski in "When You Witch Upon A Star" in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, and the Owl Witch and Tiddlywink the Fairy from Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King. She was also very well-known as the voice of Minnie Mouse. RIP Russi!
Here's the back cover for Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island courtesy of WBShop. The back cover reveals that the film will be 80 minutes, as well as that there will be two bonus episodes. "Mummy Scares Best" from What's New, Scooby-Doo? will serve as one, while very oddly, only part 1 of "Ghosts of the Ancient Astronauts" will be the other. I guess fans will just be left wondering what happens in part 2?
Here's another description of the film from the back cover:
Join Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and the Mystery Inc. gang as they win the vacation of a lifetime and put their mystery-solving days behind them. As soon as they arrive on the tropical island and check into Moonscar Island Resort, Velma, Daphne and Fred can't help but notice how strangely familiar this island is to a terrifying place they once visited long ago. They soon find out that paradise comes with a price when they encounter an army of zombies and creepy cat people. Hop on board and travel with Scooby-Doo and the gang as the unearth the mystery of Zombie Island in an all-new original move adventure - 20 years in the making!

The site will include 50 days of content, which includes downloadable activities, giveaways and products, food, games, and apps. Scooby-Doo will also partner with some local family restaurants, as well as launching the "One-Minute Mysteries" series, which are clips that shorten classic episodes into one-minute videos.
"Everyone can join in on the fun whether it's downloading the Mystery Machine coloring activity page; viewing an unboxing with Imaginext's Scooby-Doo Viking Ship; participating in a Capstone giveaway to win a free book from Scooby-Doo Mysteries; or watching "One Minute Mysteries," snackable clips that adapt fan-favorite episodes from the past 50 years. In addition to Capstone, other partners participating in the 50 day celebration include USAopoly, Random House, Cakes.com, BoxLunch and Kelloggs." says BusinessInsider.com.
The 50 Day Countdown will reveal a new piece of content each day, leading up to the 50th anniversary on September 13. On September 13, WB will be having a full-day Scooby Birthday Bash on the studio lot.

"will the udder horror be too much?" Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. You guys get it? Because it's a phantom cow? That may be the best joke WB has ever made!
I'm just kidding. It's terrible. Like seriously, really bad. Possibly the scariest thing that will be this comic.
