Production

The show was first leaked in a social media announcement by Matthew Lillard on July 19, 2017[3], and announced on May 2018.[2] It is produced by Chris Bailey, who worked on Disney's Kim Possible. On Facebook, he unofficially announced season two was in production by requesting new animators.

Notes/Trivia

  • This is the first show to be announced to premiere on Boomerang's streaming service.
  • The series is both homage to Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and The New Scooby-Doo Movies, and a sequel of sorts to the latter, although it doesn't always follow the continuity strictly. For instance, it ignores the previous encounter of Batman, but then refers back to the past encounter with Sandy Duncan.
  • Amongst the potential guest stars who were approached, but ultimately unable, to appear on the series were Mel Brooks[4] and Dolly Parton[5].

  • The episode I Put a Hex on You! originally featured the band KISS as guest stars, but this was changed late in production.[4]
