Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
Jinkies! This week, we're taking a look TV's most famous talking dog and the mystery-solving teens who drive him around, Scooby-Doo! Since the late 1960s, this scaredy-cat dog and the kids of Mystery Inc have been one of cartoons' most iconic teams, sparking hordes of fans and a host of imitators. This video was made to tell you all about the history of Scooby-Doo from its inspirations to the near-miss early drafts of the series to its many different incarnations and variations on its themes, and it would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids and their dog!
Nostalgia strikes again! 'Scooby Doo,' the Saturday morning cartoon show that generated two live action movies (and then two TV movies), will be coming back to theaters, but this time as an animated film. So no Freddie Prinze Jr. in this one (sorry, Freddie Prinze Jr.).
