#00049Scooby Doo: Abra-Cadabra-Doo (DVD/1st time viewing)One of the better Scooby Doo DTV movies. The mystery took a few twists and turns and the writers did a good job to make its solution not too obvious. Pretty much everytime they found a clue which made you go "Oh, so it was done, he/she must be behind it all", a few seconds later an explaination followed, why it must be someone else. Okay, that the real solution turns out to be a little bit too illogical is a slight bummer, but come on, that's one of the core elements of Scooby Doo, so it's not that it would ruin the movie. Visually the film is stunning! They changed the look of the characters back to the original designs, but of course with modern, fluid animation. Think "Scooby Doo On Zombie Island", without the obvious japanese touch. They also used a wonderful, atmospheric colour pattern, that gives the foggy nights in the woods around the old castle a seriously spooly feeling. The only real bummer is that Casey Kasem isn't the voice of Shaggy. To my own surprise they let Matthew Lillard reprise the role, but he is a much better Shaggy than whoever voiced him in "Get A Clue". He's still no Casey Kasem. All in all it was an entertaining Scooby Doo Mystery. Very old-school, without any real ghosts, and very entertaining, if you don't mind the old formula. I hope they bring back Velma's sister one day. I like her.

Scooby-Doo is back in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated Monday, July 12, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT)
Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their talking dog Scooby-Doo are back, solving mysteries in the spooky town of Crystal Cove in the animated Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated premiering Monday, July 12 at 7 p.m. (ET, PT). Crystal Cove is a sleepy coastal village that boasts a long history of ghostly sightings, werewolves and glowing deep sea divers. Because of all the mystery, Crystal Cove has become a tourist hotspot, taking in major profits and the townspeople don’t appreciate the meddling of the renowned sleuthing team.
In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, the curious gang investigates every circumstance with a questioning mindset. Ghosts and monsters may exist, but extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof and the gang will stop at nothing to learn the truth of Crystal Cove. Plus, the drama won’t be limited to paranormal activities � the gang will be portrayed as real teens with real problems, dealing with situations that arise in their families and personal relationships within the group.
From Warner Bros. Animation, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated features the voices of Frank Welker (What’s New, Scooby-Doo?) as Fred/Scooby-Doo, Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life) as Velma, Grey DeLisle (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) as Daphne and Matthew Lillard (the Scooby-Doo films) as Shaggy. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone (both Duck Dodgers, Back at the Barnyard, Space Jam) are the supervising producers.

Warner Bros Home Entertainment have just announced a fantastic looking complete series set for Scooby Doo, Where Are You!, due to be released on November 9, 2010. All 41 episodes of the series are included on 7 DVDs. An eighth DVD includes new bonus features. If you’re a Scooby Doo fan (and really, who isn’t) the Mystery Machine packaging should be enough to seal the deal. Check out another image of the packaging below. We’ll have more details when they are released.
In what's likely to be the strangest announcement of the day (if not of the year), it's just been reported that Warner Bros. and WWE Studios will team-up to make a new Scooby-Doo animated feature together, which will involve Scooby and the gang solving a mystery at WrestleMania.
That setting would allow WWE Studios to set-up a number of top wrestlers to appear in animated form and provide their voices including Triple H, John Cena, Kane, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, AJ, and WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
The movie will probably not get a theatrical release as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment plans on releasing it on DVD and Blu-ray as well as via VOD and digital download sometime in 2014, although this venture will allow WWE to bring its wrestling superstars into another medium that could get kids interested in wrestling and their wrestlers at an earlier age.
This wouldn't be the first time Scooby-Doo and the gang investigated spooky doings in a wrestling setting as Fred himself entered a wrestling competition in the "What's New Scooby Doo?" episode "Wrestle Maniacs" in 2005.
Below is the official press release from WWE Studios:
Warner Bros. and WWE Studios announced they will co-produce a Scooby-Doo animated feature that will find Scooby and the gang solving a mystery atWrestleMania®. The announcement was made today by Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President and General Manager, TV, Family & Animation, Warner Home Video and Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios.
WWE Superstars and Divas including Triple H®, John Cena®, Kane, The Miz®, Brodus Clay™, Santino Marella®, Sin Cara™ and AJ™ will appear in animated form and lend their voices to the project. WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon® will also lend his voice and appear in animated form.
“We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. on this wonderful animated film,” said WWE Studios President Michael Luisi. “Kids and adults are going to enjoy seeing their favorite WWE Superstars in animated form join forces with an icon like Scooby-Doo to solve a mystery at the biggest pop-culture event of the year – WrestleMania.”
“Warner Bros. is thrilled to get into the ring with WWE Studios to bring fans an unprecedented animated adventure,” said Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President and General Manager, TV, Warner Home Video. “We’re excited to leverage the WWE’s family-friendly brand and passionate fan base and integrate some of the most popular WWE Superstars and Divas within the Scooby-Doo gang.”
When Shaggy and Scooby win tickets to WrestleMania, the entire gang travels in the Mystery Machine to WWE City to attend the epic event. However, when a mysterious ghostly bear appears and threatens to ruin the show, Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred work with WWE Superstars to solve the case.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download. The film will be produced by Warner Bros. Animation. WWE will utilize its extensive global reach through its television, digital media and print assets to market the release of the film.
Bradley Buchanan, VP of Business and Legal Affairs negotiated on behalf of WWE Studios.

I had no idea I'm that persuasive
That kid was named Flim Flam? Sounds more like a dragon (maybe only to Germans)
