The trailer for Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King said the film would be released September 16, 2008, but for an unexplained reason, it was pushed back a week to September 23, 2008. The same thing happened with Scooby-Doo and the Samurai Sword, but this time, through an Amazon listing that was switched from March 31, 2009 to April 7, 2009 at the last minute.
As a fun personal note, I remember when I was younger being super upset about it when I went to the store on September 16 and the Goblin King DVD wasn't there lol.
Thanks to Samuel Kirkwood for suggesting this poll question!
Here are the results from last week's poll. I'm shocked with both how close this poll was, and by the winner!
Which of the main voice actors from SCOOB! (not including Frank Welker) did the best job?
Will Forte - 26
Amanda Seyfried - 25
Zac Efron - 18
Gina Rodriguez - 9
CMON has created a kickstarter new Scooby-Doo board game, which will already be launching January 13 at 3pm ET according to ComicBook.com. Here's the description of the game from the CMON site:
Ruh-roh, Shaggy! There’s a monster on the loose and it’s scaring everyone out of town! It’s up to the Mystery Inc. Gang to stop them! Designed by Fred Perret and Guilherme Goulart (from Arcadia Quest), and with original art by Hannah Cardoso (from Foodies and Munchkin Dungeon), Scooby-Doo: The Board Game is a cooperative family game for 1-5 players that brings the beloved cartoon series to life with amazing miniatures of the whole Mystery Inc. Gang.
Players take on the role of Scooby-Doo, Fred, Velma, Daphne or Shaggy, and ride the Mystery Machine around town, building traps to catch the villains before they frighten all the citizens away. But just like in our favorite episodes, even the best plans can go awry as the monster, which is controlled by the game itself, may make a move the players never expected!
Each member of Mystery, Inc. has their own unique, special ability to help them during the game. And they’ll need all the help they can get, because the villains all operate differently as well! The gang can only succeed if they coordinate together as a group.
Scooby-Doo: The Board Game is family friendly and easy to learn, with three levels of difficulty (easy/medium/hard), and special rules for playing both as a 2-player or solo game as well. On working on such a beloved cartoon series, Guilherme said, “Everyone knows of Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. Gang. The show has been on TV uninterrupted since 1969! They’re cultural icons across multiple countries and it’s been great to bring them to tabletops.”
In other Scooby news today which didn't really warrant its own post, Curse of the 13th Ghost and Return to Zombie Island were oddly removed from the Boomerang streaming service yesterday. This only adds to the several Scooby movies that many people were already waiting to be added to the Boomerang service and app.
The news of two new Guess Who title cards for the last 11 episodes broke yesterday, but thanks to Weber on the ScoobyAddicts forum, we also have a trailer from Turkey (though it's in Turkish)! It all goes by pretty fast, so I wanted to take a moment and specifically point out all the new villains we see in the trailer. I'm thinking, based on the picture Tracy Mark Lee posted on Instagram, that the bug monster (which also happens to appear in the opening song for "The High School Wolfman's Musical Lament!") will be the monster in the football episode.
I can't really tell who the first three of these people are, but the fourth is Sean Astin.
And I think this is Cher! Looks like they're on a boat, so I'm betting it'll be something similar to "The Secret of Shark Island".
Some unfortunate news I wanted to point out for fans of the Daphne & Velma book. It was originally announced for release on February 2, 2021. While Amazon still lists this date, Target has switched the release date on their site to June 1, 2021. Given the cover and title have not been released yet, I think the possibility that book 3 will be pushed back is growingly likely, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic still causing production delays for many projects. Stay tuned for any more updates there may be on this!
It's the first Scooby news of 2021! Two new Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? title cards from the remaining 11 episodes have been revealed, due to airing on Boomerang Turkey. The Sean Astin episode will be titled "Returning of the Key Ring!", and the episode featuring Lucy Liu is titled "The Tao of Scoob!" No additional information is known about any of the episodes or their US air dates at this time.
Thanks to ShadowScooby for sharing these title card images that he found on Scoobypedia!
The original airing of "The Man in the Mirror" on Cartoon Network had approximately the first two minutes of the episode cut. In CN's airing of the episode, the beginning of the episode showed Fred already in the mirror world, confusing viewers as they had not seen where Fred was pulled inside the mirror world. It is unknown why the footage was cut. One day later, the full episode (including the omitted two minutes) was released online.
Happy New Year everyone! I chose not to include Frank Welker in this poll, as I feel like everyone would pick him. I have to make the options at least a little bit challenging for you to pick between haha.
Here are the results from last year...or should I say last week. Also, just a quick note, I messed up one of the Laff-a-Lympics titles. It should have been "Canada and Warsaw, Poland" not "Warsaw and Poland." Sorry about that!
