History[]

Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost[]

Mystery Inc. and Ben Ravencroft crashed Thorn and the girls' rehearsal of "Hex Girl". After that the gang and Ben decided to follow the girls and see if they have anything to do with the mystery they are trying to unveil. Fred and Daphne even suspected that they were real witches, after seeing Thorn performing a strange ritual. Later, it was revealed that what they saw was just a herbal mixture that Thorn had made to soothe their vocal chords, and they even explained that they were actually eco-goths, and that Thorn also was a real wiccan. They accompanied the rest of the group in the search for Sarah Ravencroft's diary (which was actually a spell book). Later on, Thorn was able to trap the ghost of Sarah back in the book by reading a spell out loud. A little while later, the Hex Girls, along with Scooby-Doo and the gang, performed "Earth, Wind, Fire, and Air", for the townsfolk.[1]

Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire[]

Scooby and the gang found out that Thorn, Luna and Dusk were to open the Vampire Rock Music Festival in Australia. When they were in the middle of singing their opening song, the giant Yowie Yahoo and his three vampire minions captured them, and it was up to the Scooby Gang to find them. It was later revealed that they had been taken to the vampires' hideout and were offered a Great Barrier Reef scuba diving tour if they quit from the festival, to which they refused, so they were left stranded. They eventually were able to come back to the place where the festival, just in time to see the Mystery Inc. solve the mystery, revealing Wildwind to be behind it. Scooby and the Gang closed the festival as "The Meddling Kids", with a rendition of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, and the Hex Girls joined them onstage as backing singers.[2]

What's New, Scooby-Doo?[]

Season two[]

The girls were in the Fortescu Castle in Transylvania, trying to shoot a music video on their latest song, when a vampire attacked them. The attack scared Dusk who barely got away and she tried to convince the others to get out of there before they got attacked again, but Thorn and Luna wanted to stay and try to finish shooting. This created an atmosphere of instability among the group. At this point, Mystery Inc. arrived (after having been invited), and had to solve the mystery, while trying to prevent the girls from breaking up. In the end, Thorn, Dusk, and Luna shot a new music video, with the assistance of Scooby and the gang.[3]

Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?[]

Season one[]

The Hex Girls help the Gang solve the mystery of the haunted guitar of Ester Moonkiller. The guitar was delivered to the Hex Girls and used a special frequency to alter the personalities of Thorn and Luna. The guitar was sent by Xander, a previous member of the band and the current head of their fan club.[4]

Comics[]

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up[]

The Hex Girls, along with Mystery Inc.'s other allies Vincent Van Ghoul and Flim-Flam were tired of always playing second fiddle to the gang, so they unleashed several versions of the gang from other dimensions and disguised themselves as a giant version of Scrappy-Doo. After being revealed, they are chased by different versions of Scrappy.[5]

Notes/Trivia[]

Hex Girls cameo (Velma)

Hex Girls cameo in Velma

  • Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost co-writer Rick Copp seems to have based the Hex Girls partially on Josie and the Pussycats, popular characters to whom Hanna-Barbera lost the rights in the mid-1970s.[6] It is noteworthy that other animated shows of the time featured female rock stars as well, including Priss in Bubblegum Crisis 2040.
  • Upon the release of Witch's Ghost, Warner Bros. was briefly interested in doing a spin-off TV series, to be developed by the film's writers Copp and David A. Goodman. Production was launched in 2000 on a spin-off featuring younger versions of the Hex Girls. Although it ultimately went unrealized, Cartoon Network had still shown some interest towards Copp about the idea, and the concept art of the younger Hex Girls has survived.[6]
  • The Hex Girls makes a cameo appearance in the Velma episode Marching Band Sleepover.
