For today's fun fact, we have a guest writer! Bradford Smith did the research on this and contacted Mark Lewis, and was kind enough to submit it as a fun fact to the site!
According to Mark Lewis, a character clean-up artist, in the original script for “Scooby-Doo! and the Witch’s Ghost”, Mystery Inc. was shown traveling to multiple places around the globe, including a stop in London where a parade was held and they got to meet the Queen. Unfortunately, as so many crowd scenes weren’t possible on their direct-to-video animation budget, and the scenes weren’t relevant to the film’s main story, they were edited out during the rewrite process and never even made it to the storyboards.
Thanks so much again Bradford for doing the research on this and writing this fun fact!
