New gang lined up for "Scooby-Doo" TV movie
A third "Scooby-Doo" movie will begin production Monday in Vancouver, but will bypass theaters and feature a cast of unknown actors.

"Scooby-Doo: In the Beginning," a live-action/computer-animated film, will debut on Cartoon Network in fall 2009 when it also will be released on DVD.

As a prequel to the 2002 and 2004 "Scooby-Doo" movies, it finds the Mystery gang uniting for the first time to solve the haunting of their high school.

The original quartet of Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini has been replaced, respectively, by Rob Amell ("Life With Derek") as Freddy, newcomers Kaitlyn Melton as Daphne, Nick Palatas as Shaggy and Hayley Alcroft as Velma. The computer-generated Scooby-Doo will be voiced by Frank Welker, a longtime voice actor on the animated "Scooby-Doo" series. Brian Levant ("Are We There Yet?") will direct.

Boomerang's "Dog Days of Summer"
Cartoon Network's sister-network Boomerang, the home to many Hanna-Barbera animation as well as more recently produced cartoons that once called CN proper their abode, has announced their plan to pay tribute to the dogs of television animation throughout the month of July 2008. Promoted as the Boomerang network's "Dog Days of Summer" event, the extended cable channel is gearing up to feature one of the oodles of poodles that have graced the small screen each Saturday and Sunday afternoon, kicking off this coming Saturday, July 5th.

Boomerang is looking to highlight the exploits of top canines ranging from the indomitable Scooby-Doo (Scooby Doo Where Are You?), to the rather evil Muttley (Wacky Races), to the smooth-talking Huckleberry Hound (The Huckleberry Hound Show), to the more saccharine Dino (The Flintstones). "We've always believed our dog stars deserved a day in the sun," Rico Hill, Vice President of Programming and Scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network, recently commented. "Mid-summer in the heat of July seemed the perfect time to take these boys 'out for a walk' so to speak so that their many fans could enjoy them."

Each of the spotlights on these memorable mutts will air form 4:00pm through to 5:30pm (ET) on Saturdays and Sundays of July. The "Dog Days of Summer" at Boomerang will include the schedule as follows:

Saturday, July 5th: Scooby-Doo
A cowardly great Dane, Scooby-Doo, and his four teenage partners-Freddy, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy-tour the country in their "Mystery Machine" van in search of the supernatural. Episodes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? to include "Don't Go Near the Fortress of Fear," "The Beast is Awake in Bottomless Lake" and "The Warlock of Wimbledon."

Sunday, July 6th: Scrappy-Doo
The mystery-solving great Dane, Scooby-Doo, and pals Fred, Shaggy, Daphne and Velma return to the trail of mystery, this time featuring a new addition-Scooby's overly zealous little nephew, Scrappy-Doo, who instigates all the trouble for the gang. Episodes of Scooby and Scrappy Doo to include "The Scarab Lives!," "Strange Encounters of A Scooby Kind" and "The Night Ghoul of Wonderworld."
