My Scooby Stuff - Day 256 - Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost DVD

Day 256 - Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost DVD

I know I have a few days to catch up on yet, but I wanted to post this DVD on Scooby's 49th anniversary! Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost was released on DVD two days ago. It is the newest movie in the Scooby-Doo realm. I haven't watch it yet, but it's on my list of things to do today.

The movie features world-famous chef Bobby Flay as Fred's uncle. Scooby and the gang, along with Flay and Giada De Laurentiis, work together to solve another mystery. I'm sure this movie will be jam packed with Scooby and Shaggy's favorite thing...FOOD!

The back of the DVD cover has a description of the movie, a list of the special features, which include 3 bonus cartoons, and the copyright info. The DVD runs 77 minutes. It is not rated.

The DVD itself has a picture of Scooby dressed up as a chef. This DVD is copyright 2018.

My Scooby Stuff - Day 245 - 6 1/2" Plush Scooby Beanie Baby - 2nd Edition

Day 245 - 6 1/2" Plush Scooby Beanie Baby - 2nd Edition

If you follow my blog or my social media pages, you will recognize this 6 1/2" Scooby plush from my Adventures with Scooby posts. This is the stuffed Scooby that I use for those blog posts. He's easy to carry, I like his coloring, and he's a good size so he isn't overpowering or getting lost in the pictures.

This is what Scooby looks like from the sides. He has 2 spots on his shoulders and a spot on his back. His collar is a darker blue than the normal turquoise color.

The spot in his back seemed to be 2 different spots that they sewed together. From the back, his ears look a little smaller than they should be.

The tag that was attached to his ear, which I removed because it looked weird in pictures, shows that Scooby is a Ty Beanie Baby.

The back of the tag shows that the plush is for ages 3 and up and should only be surface washed.

The inside of the tag has the 2016 copyright date and some other info. I like the line "Did someone say Scooby Snack?!"

The tag attached to the Scooby plush also has the 2016 copyright date. Scooby was handmade in China.

The inside of the tag has the material information.

You may think you have seen this Scooby posted as part of my collection already. You wouldn't be totally incorrect. I posted another Scooby Beanie Baby on day 207. The differences between the 2 are the copyright dates are different (2008 vs 2016), the ears on this one are smaller than the ears on the other, the face is a little different and the material used is also a bit different. So I'm counting them as 2 separate items in my collection. :)

My Scooby Stuff - Day 244 - Mystery Machine Magic Towel

Day 244 - Mystery Machine Magic Towel

I found this Mystery Machine Magic Towel at the Dollar Tree. I like seeing Scooby drive the Mystery Machine. It seems to be the only Scooby one they currently have. I dug through all of the magic towels that they had and this was all I could find.

I haven't taken this one out of the packaging yet. I don't know if I will ever open it. This magic cloth is copyright 2018 and made in China.

My Scooby Stuff - Day 243 - Bottle Cap Scooby Magnets

Day 243 - Bottle Cap Scooby Magnets

I have a friend who made these Scooby-Doo bottle cap magnets for me.  They are really cool! They include Scooby, Shaggy, the Mystery Machine, the gang, the movie logo and even Scrappy.

I don't have a copyright date on these as they aren't official merchandise. They are a great addition to my collection.

August Fan Spotlight - Ashton


About a month or so ago, I asked for volunteers that wanted to do the fan spotlight. Ashton was very gracious enough to accept the spot for August. He is a huge Scooby fan and he has an awesome collection!

Be sure to check Ashton out on social media:


1. What was the first Scooby series you ever watched?

I wanna say Scooby-Doo Where Are You, it’s such a distant memory but a funny story. My dad was driving with me in the back when there was this fire in a field by a barn. He stopped to help get the fire out before it got to the animals and the barn. A bunch of neighbors came out to see what was going on and my dad asked a lady if she could go get me from his car. I was little so I didn’t really understand what was going on. Anyways she took me into her house and when they got the fire under control the lady that had taken me brought me back and told my dad she just turned Scooby-Doo on for me. After that I’ve always loved Scooby-Doo for as long as I can remember.

2. Who is your favorite member of the gang and why?

This one is hard because I feel like every iteration is different. But probably Shaggy. I work at Michaels and I have a ton of customers tell me I look like him (minus the glasses) I feel like him and I are similar in a lot of ways, though he has me beat on the amount of food he can inhale. My favorite color is green and that came from his iconic green shirt. Plus he has a best Canine pal and I’ve grown up with a dog all my life that’s been my best dog friend.

3. What is your favorite Scooby item in your collection?

This is going to sound dumb, but probably my vhs copy of Scooby-Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed. I remember wanting to go see that movie in theaters so bad and one night my brother surprised me and my siblings with tickets to go see it and I remember going in, sitting down, and watching those monsters I’ve watched for some years now come to life before my eyes. As dumb as it sounds it’s still my favorite movie of all time, I’ve watched more times than I should admit. But it came out on video around my birthday and it was all I wanted. My dad told me he went around the city to find a vhs version of the film because we didn’t have a DVD player yet. I can remember him saying he finally got to a store and saw all the copies of the movie and there was a clerk by them cleaning/organizing other products, and he asked her as he walked down the aisle if that was a vhs copy of the movie, and she picked it up and said yes it is and handed him one. He went above and beyond to make sure I had that film. And that poor vhs is somehow still intact. I now  have four copies of that film, my original vhs, the full screen and widescreen DVD’s, and a blu-Ray copy.

4. What is one Scooby item you would love to add to your collection?

Oh man this is a tough one, I really want the LEGO sets, and a bunch of the video games I missed out on, but I think I’d have to say the soundtrack albums they released (Scooby-Doo’s Snack Tracks, Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost album, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders album) I love music and I think having an official soundtrack of Scooby doo would be the coolest thing, to pop it in the car while heading to work or something and jam out, or even jam out with friends to the music. Something about those have always stuck out to me.

Thanks so much Ashton for sharing your collection and your awesome answers! Here are some more pictures of Ashton's collection:

My Scooby Stuff - Day 242 - Scooby-Doo Sugar Cookies

 Day 242 - Scooby-Doo Sugar Cookies

I love these Scooby-Doo sugar cookies!! They aren't my favorite cookies in the world taste-wise, but they have Scooby on them, which makes them amazing! The box comes with 24 pre-cut sugar cookies wth Scooby's face on them. I was happy to see that the cookie on the box is pretty similar to the way the actual cookies look and they didn't try to make it look like it was drawn by a WB artist as they have done on other products.

The back of the box has a maze on it, the nutrition facts and ingredients, baking instructions and the Pillsbury website info.

This is what the cookies look like before they are baked. All 24 of them sit in a white tray in the box.

This is what they look like after they are cooked. These are sitting on a cooling rack, but they kind of look like maybe I didn't bake them long enough lol. They look pretty much like the non-baked ones.

This is what the sides of the box look like.

Here is a close up of the nutrition facts and ingredients. As you can see, these are not really healthy for you. But they taste good!

The Scooby-Doo sugar cookies are copyright 2016. If you are looking for them, I saw them at Wegmans the other day and ScoobyDoom said he say them at Walmart!
