Scooby Doo is back!
Brian Levant (“The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas”, “Are We There Yet?”) has signed to direct a new “Scooby Doo” film – a telemovie prequel to the two “Scooby Doo” films of previous years.

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr will be sitting this one out. A nation-wide casting call is now underway to find the new Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy.

In this new pic, Daphne’s a mystery writer inspired by Murder She Wrote; Fred’s a football player with a penchant for jigsaw puzzles who decides to try out for the school paper, his idol is footballer turned supreme court justice Bryan ‘Whizzer’ White; Shaggy is as daft as ever and not doing so well at school; and Velma (who I hear might be Asian in the new film) is a teen U.S ambassador for World Hunger.

ssumingly, they all apply for jobs at the school paper – for different reasons – and end up solving their first mystery…. Whatever that may be.

If there’s one thing the “Scooby Doo” films got right is the cast: Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini, as Shaggy and Velma, respectively, were perfect. Here’s hoping Warners find themselves some satisfactory surrogates…

Production begins in August in Vancouver.

Daily Giveaway: 'Scooby Doo/Richie Rich' Hour Volume 1
Two of the most enduring Hanna-Barbera characters, Richie Rich and Scooby-Doo were the stars of 'The Richie Rich, Scooby-Doo Show', which originally aired on ABC. The one-hour program combined several shorts, each featuring either Richie Rich or Scooby-Doo, who starred in their own entertaining adventures.

Originally created by Harvey Comics, Richie Rich, the child of incredibly wealthy parents is the world’s richest kid. He lives in a mansion in his hometown of Richville and has an allowance that is the envy of children everywhere. Richie is a kind and benevolent boy who has the luxury of going on globe-trotting adventures with his faithful dog Dollar, his best buddies Freckles and Gloria, butler Cadbury and robot maid Irona. Professor Keenbeen, director of the Rich Science Center often comes along for the ride, creating wacky inventions that either help or hinder Richie’s exploits.

Scooby-Doo is the beloved, animated mystery-solving canine, who made his original debut on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! In this incarnation, Scooby-Doo is featured along with Shaggy and Scrappy. As a trio, they travel the world in the Mystery Machine often with comedic outcomes.

Warner Bros. pushes shows online with 2 new Web sites
Warner Bros. says it's launching two Web sites to capture new ad revenue and a younger generation of viewers.

Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros. Television Group says TheWB.com will replay full episodes of shows such as "Friends" and "Smallville" along with made-for-online shows. The site is set to launch in a test format next month.

A second site, KidsWB.com, is aimed at children and debuts Monday. It features animated characters from the Warner Bros. library, which includes Bugs Bunny and Scooby Doo and DC Comics heroes like Batman.

The group says both sites will be supported by ad revenue, with deals already in place with Mattel Inc., McDonald's Corp. and Johnson & Johnson.

Cartoon Cakes
From Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, Food Network Challenge competitors decorate cakes inspired by four of the most popular cartoons in animation history. Watch as Scooby-Doo squares off against Popeye; and Betty Boop's "boo boop be do" goes against the charm of Curious George. All's fun in cartoons and cakes, until you throw a $10,000 prize into the mix--and four top cake artists who don't like to lose.

This episode aired on February 2, 2008.

Mike McCrary of Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, Washington won. His cake was “Scooby Doo and the Mummy’s Curse” (pictured above). On the show Scooby joined him when his check was presented and he commented that although his daughter would be glad he won that wouldn’t compare to Scooby standing beside him!
