That seems sensible, though it will still be a skinnier field this year.

I'm somewhat disheartened Scoob is going straight to streaming. Yeah, the voices stink, and the characters are all over the place, it just would've been nice to have a cartoony Scooby movie on the big screen. Now with this decision, all that hoopla to get bigger names was for nothing.

The problem with sending Scoob straight to home is there have already been a ton of straight-to-video Scooby-Doo movies already! It feels less “special” now.

Funny how this show is barely ever mentioned....not that I was ever much of a fan, but I can’t help but think of it because of all these different animated versions nowadays. (Yes, the theme song is excruciating, but insanely catchy as well. :shock: )

I think Scoob and Shaggy both look adorable! :)

Judging by the trailers, there will be a lot I will enjoy, and some things I will frown at. But I will buy the Blu-ray and try it out there.

Even though Matthew Lillard wasn't playing Shaggy this time around, he did give a promotional good-luck Tweet ("Just what we need in this time of crisis.")

Despite my contempt for Warner's hypocritical and overcompensating display of new franchise-marketable fan affection for 70's H-B, it was so nice, I couldn't help responding with a "And thank you, Matt, for being the only one with enough old-school integrity to take the '02 movie seriously".
And got a Like from Daphne (Grey DeLisle). Aww. :mrgreen:

Here's the actual tweet to get the full picture:

Very classy of Matthew.

Loved what Grey posted, though!

Cool title sequence comparison! :). (Classic cartoon vs. Scoob film)

I’ve always loved the terrible willing/villain couplet in that song!

Once again though, even at the limited TV level, the appeal of hand-drawn over digital shows the expressiveness of traditional over the too squishy CG.

Lol on the original lyrics, try this one from A Pup Named Scooby Doo on for size:

“There’s a mystery in town!/So call the coolest pup around!”


Lol. ;) :).

AGREE....says so much how even a cheaply made hand-drawn 70s Saturday Morning cartoon is still more fun to watch than an admittedly nice-looking CGI animated movie from 2020. :|
