Zoinks! 'Scooby-Doo' Actor Cuts off Thumb
Nick Palatas -- the straight-to-DVD "Scooby-Doo" actor -- just lopped off his thumb.

Nick's manager tells us the actor -- who plays Shaggy in the film -- was working with a table saw this afternoon in Northridge, CA when the saw struck a knot in the wood and suddenly jumped.

We're told the saw sliced off one-third to one-half of Nick's right thumb. Nick dialed 911. Yes.

While in the ambulance, Nick called his mother and asked her to go to his home and retrieve his thumb ... which she obligingly did.

Nick's mother just took the thumb to Northridge Hospital -- but the medical staff concluded it could not be reattached.

Nick is now waiting on a "top Hollywood plastic surgeon" to see if he'll ever get put back together again.

Scooby-Doo! Nostalgia Contest
With the September 22 release of Scooby-Doo! First Frights readily approaching, Nintendo World Report is teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to deliver a contest that will make you say "Zoinks, Scoob!"

All you have to do to enter is write a short piece detailing a nostalgic memory about Scooby and the rest of Mystery Inc. However, we encourage you to use your imagination and include as many Scooby-Doo references as possible. For example, you could write an entirely factual entry about how you and your siblings watched Scooby-Doo all the time as kids, and then end it with you unmasking a random ghoul who just so happens to be Old Man Weathers. Or you could make a fictional story about how you and Scooby-Doo met Batman and Abbot and Costello. It's all up to you!

While you won't be judged, there will be prizes, and we will post all of the entries for everyone's enjoyment (as long as they're appropriate). Five lucky entrants will win a copy of Scooby-Doo! First Frights for Wii.

Send your stories to contest@nintendoworldreport.com with the subject "Scooby-Doo! Contest" and show your work to the world. Maybe you'll win a prize!

All entries must be in by September 20 at midnight EST. Winners will be announced shortly after.

Boomerang to Run "Scooby-Doo" 40th Birthday Marathon Sept 5-6, 2009
When Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? premiered on broadcast television (CBS) Saturday morning, Sept. 13, 1969, television audiences took their first journey on what would become literally hundreds of mystery-solving comedy capers featuring a teenage gang of amateur detectives and their cowardly, yet beloved great Dane. Today, having recruited generations of fans young and old across the globe, Scooby-Doo will celebrate his milestone 40th birthday over Labor Day Weekend on the commercial-free Boomerang network with two seven-hour marathons, 2-9 p.m. (ET), Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6.

To commemorate the special event, Scooby and the gang-Freddy, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy-on Saturday will solve 17 classic supernatural mysteries, including their very first from the original premiere episode, "What a Night for a Knight." Then on Sunday, Boomerang will devote another seven-hour marathon, 2-9 p.m., to showcase The New Scooby-Doo Movies, the second series in the Scooby-Doo canon and the only series to feature hour-long episodes. The hallmark of this series is its animated celebrity guests, and during the special presentation, Scooby and the gang meet the casts of other great Hanna-Barbera cartoons such as Josie and the Pussycats and the Harlem Globetrotters.

"Scooby-Doo is a timeless character whose humor, chronic cowardice and insatiable appetite appeal to the 'kid' inside all of us," said Stacy Isenhower, senior vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network. "These marathons are excellent family viewing, providing nostalgia for adults while still funny and fresh for young ones today."
