"A cartoon superstar for nearly 40 years, Scooby-Doos popularity spans child and adult audiences alike, said Mark Norman, svp for Boomerang. He has the singular ability to combine silly comedy with scary adventures, so kids everywhere get to experience plenty of laughs mixed in with some real goosebumps. Plus Halloween week certainly is an ideal time to turn the spotlight on the hardest-working dog in television. SCOOBERANG should now be considered a holiday tradition."
Scooby's ghost-chasing capers span 12 different series created by Hanna-Barbera Studios, as well as the newest program, WHATS NEW, SCOOBY-DOO?, created by Warner Bros. Television Animation. Boomerang has selected dozens of favorite episodes from each series to properly showcase Scooby-Doo and his crime solving co-stars as they venture around the world in their psychedelic van, uncovering spooky mysteries and unexplained apparitions.

SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? first aired on CBS in 1969, and spawned multiple animated TV series spin-offs, feature-length television movies, direct-to-video motion pictures and even a blockbuster live-action theatrical film over the past 36 years. The series follows a meddling gang of kids Freddy, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their Great Dane, Scooby-Doo as they seek out suspense in deserted mansions, ghost towns, museums, old carnivals and burial grounds. Scooby unwittingly solves each mystery, as each episode typically ends with the thwarted villain proclaiming, And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it werent for those meddling kids and that dog!
