Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins
Premieres 7 p.m. (EST) Sept. 13 on Cartoon Network

The ghost-hunting Great Dane and his friends are back in another movie combining a new live-action cast with a computer-generated Scooby. No Freddie Prinze Jr., no Sarah Michelle Gellar, etc. But the new cast of young actors playing Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy is quite good. (Nick Palatas as Shaggy and Hayley Kiyoko as Velma fit their characters to a tee. But longtime fans will wonder what happened to Fred’s ascot.) Hard to believe, but it has been 40 years since the Sept. 13, 1969, debut of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! as a Saturday-morning staple. This movie shows how "those meddling kids and their dog" met, became friends and got into the mystery-solving game.

SCOOBY-DOO! THE MYSTERY BEGINS SET FOR SEPTEMBER 13
For the first time in history, the never-before-told story of how the Mystery Inc. gang first joined forces will be revealed in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins. A co-production of Warner Premiere and Cartoon Network, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins combines adventurous storytelling, stylized CGI visuals and a new, young live-action cast to bring the origin story of Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo to life. The two-hour movie will make its television debut on Sunday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT) during Cartoon Network Flicks, a destination for movies.

In Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, Coolsville High is plagued by a suspicious haunting, and everyone is accusing Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy of playing a spooky prank. Suddenly, the school athlete, the science fair-winning brainiac, the drama beauty and the school misfit must band together to clear their names. With Shaggy's newly adopted dog Scooby-Doo tagging along, the mismatched quartet soon discovers they have more in common than they originally thought.

The live-action cast features Robbie Amell (Life With Derek, True Jackson) as Fred, along with Kate Melton as Daphne, Hayley Kiyoko as Velma and Nick Palatas as Shaggy. Frank Welker, a member of the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! voice-cast, provides the voice of Scooby-Doo. Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins is directed by Brian Levant (Snow Dogs, The Flintstones), produced by Brian Gilbert (Wrong Turn) and written by Daniel and Steven Altiere (Dr. Dolittle: A Tinsel Town Tail, Gym Teacher: The Movie). Warner Home Video will release Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins on DVD and Blu-Ray Hi-Def Combo Pack on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The world's most famous Great Dane first appeared on television screens on Sept. 13, 1969. Over the past four decades, the Scooby-Doo characters have spawned 10 television series (spanning some 300 episodes), seven TV specials/telefilms, three live-action films and 12 made-for-video animated films. Scooby-Doo the animated series is the longest continually running cartoon series in television history, and, coincidentally, one of the longest-running mystery series in television history.
