We Eat Foods From the Scooby-Doo Series Just To See What They Taste Like

When I think of Scooby-Doo and Shaggy, I think of best friends who get scared and like to eat a lot of food. What better way to celebrate their love of food than by attempting to eat it ourselves! 



On the Scooby Panel, we do food episodes every 10th episode...and since we just released our 30th episode, that means we have had 3 food episodes...3 episodes where we tasted a few of the crazy concoctions that the loveable Great Dane and his best friend have come up with. 

Since no one else was eating the foods from Scooby-Doo, I thought it would be fun to add it into our panel rotations. Though before I was brave enough to do it on the panels, I talked to Jordan from theartofscoobydoo and I gave him the idea to make a couple of Instagram videos eating a couple of the foods. He also happily joined us on the Scooby Panel for the first food panel. 

So far, we have covered the food of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, The Scooby-Doo Show and The New Scooby-Doo Movies. It seems that with each series we do, there is more and more food!

In our most recent panel release, our third food panel, the food of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, we tried chocolate pizza (mentioned in The Ghastly Ghost Town) OR pizza with sausage, pepperoni, chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream (anchovies optional) (The Phantom of the Country Music Hall), a sandwich with peanut butter, jelly, meat, cheese (ketchup, mustard, pickle, mayo, banana optional) (Guess Who’s Knott Coming to Dinner) and grapefruit covered in whipped cream, marshmallow, chocolate syrup and a cherry (The Haunted Candy Factory).

I think this has got to be one of the most fun panels we have done! We had a great conversation about the food. Wendy made her foods look amazing! Devin went all out with preparing his foods! He made them look just like the foods from the show...tall sandwich and all! Leah was a great addition to the panel as well, she was very knowledgeable and so much fun to have on!

Watch our latest food episode here:


In our first food panel, the food of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, we tried a chocolate covered hot dog (A Clue For Scooby Doo), chocolate dipped corn on the cob (Jeepers It's The Creeper) and Scooby Snacks.  

In our second food panel, the food of The Scooby-Doo Show, we tried licorice pizza (mentioned in The Creepy Case of Old Iron Face), a sauerkraut sandwich topped with whipped cream and a cherry (The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller) and a peanut butter, mozzarella cheese and ice cream sandwich (The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller). 

I never thought I'd be trying the foods in the episodes. I'm not one to eat weird foods! It had been quite interesting and while the foods haven't all tasted good, the food panels are a fun way for us to try something new together and do something different on the panels. 

I am so excited about where the Scooby Panel has gone! I have talked to some amazing Scooby fans about Scooby-Doo and we have had 2 to 4 hour conversations! It's been great! These food episodes are so much fun and also kind of weird haha, but a great way to bond with other Scooby fans! 

I'm excited to see what other Scooby-Doo foods are in our future!

What's New in 2022, Scooby-Doo?


We made it through 2021! Another tough year with Covid! Plus, we've seen cases creeping into 2022, though, hopefully, this year will be much better! 

Happy 2022!!! Here is some of the Scooby-Doo stuff that is coming up this year!!

SCOOB! Holiday Haunt


On December 22, 2021, we found out that HBO Max will be streaming SCOOB! Holiday Haunt in late 2022. The film will feature the gang as kids. 

"To celebrate Scooby Doo's first Christmas, 10-year-old Shaggy and the gang take him to a holiday-themed resort owned by Fred's favorite Uncle Ned. When the park is beset by a ghostly haunting, the kids must solve a 40-year-old mystery to save the resort and show Scooby the true meaning of Christmas."

 

 Figures Toy Company - New Scooby Villain Figures


Figures Toy Company will be releasing some really cool figures this year! They have already announced Redbeard the Pirate, Redbeard's Ghost and Frankenstein and Wolfman from A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts. Be sure to keep an eye on their Twitter page for more announcements coming, like Carlotta the Gypsy and possibly even Dracula. 

You can check out our Scooby Panel interview with Chris DePetrillo from Figures Toy Company on YouTube or on most podcast platforms. 


Scooby-Doo Valentine Merchandise

Like every year, there are some Scooby-Doo Valentine's Day products that have been released for 2022. 

This year's greeter is the SCOOB! version, with his sad puppy dog eyes, holding a letter in his mouth. He is sold exclusively at Walmart for $20.00, though people are buying him and selling him on eBay and Mercari for 2-3 times its value!


Another Scooby Valentine's plush was released this year. This one was sold at Weis, the grocery store, for $18.00 and features Scooby singing "Be My Baby" and side stepping. 


A gift set was released as well. The set includes a plastic water bottle, a puzzle, stickers and jumbo chalk in a tin for $12.98.

And finally SCOOB! Valentine's cards with stickers for $2.48. 



Trick or Treat Studios - New Masks

Trick or Treat Studios released their 2022 catalog, which shows the Scooby-Doo masks and costumes on pages 17 and 18. While most of them looked like ones we have seen before, 3 of them stood out as new - The Caveman, the Zombie and the Witch. These masks are incredible! Be sure to keep an eye on their website for the new masks. 





Handmade By Robots - Velma and The Mystery Machine

Handmade By Robots commented on a post on Instagram by @theartofscoobydoo and said that, in addition to the Scooby-Doo and Shaggy knit looking figures they released in December, they will be releasing Velma and The Mystery Machine in May! I can't wait to see what they look like and purchase them, of course! 


Funko Glow-In-The-Dark Phantom Shadow

Funko Pop News! posted on Twitter on December 25, 2021 that a new glow-in-the-dark Phantom Shadow will be released by Funko. No other information, like when or where, was released. 



Scooby-Doo! Where Are You - The Complete Series (Blu-Ray)

Scooby-Doo! Where Are You The Complete Series is coming to Blu-Ray on March 1, 2022. According to blu-ray.com, the 4-disc set will include 3 seasons of the show. 


Batman & Scooby-Doo! Mysteries #11 & #12 

The final 2 issues of the Batman & Scooby-Doo! Mysteries comic will be released on February 8 & March 8, 2022 and the covers have been revealed. I wonder when we will see them cross paths again! 



Daphne & Velma: Buried Secrets

Will Daphne & Velma: Buried Secrets (Book #3) be released this year? Scholastic has been putting off the release of the book, according to the author, Morgan Baden. It was supposed to be released last year and then it just wasn't. Let's hope we see this in 2022!



Scooby-Doo! And the Lost City of Gold - Live Stage Show

The Scooby-Doo! and the Lost City of Gold live stage show was supposed to open March 19, 2020, however, Covid forced them to cancel all of the shows. They rescheduled them and the show opens on January 25, 2022 in Roanoke, Virginia. For more details or to get tickets, check out their website


Scooby-Doo & Krypto Crossover Movie?

In June, 2021, Editor Annie De Brock posted on her website that she was working on a Scooby-Doo & Krypto crossover movie and it was coming in 2021. The movie was not confirmed by WB and wasn't listed anywhere else. Is the movie still coming? While Annie's website used to name the movie as Scooby-Doo! and Krypto Too!, it now says Scooby Doo DTV. 



Velma

The Velma series was announced on February 10, 2021 with very few details. It would be an adult animated HBO Max 10 episode origin story that would focus on Velma, who would be voiced by Mindy Kaling, and she would have a colorful past. 

On June 10, 2021, we learned that Velma would be of East Asian descent and the show wouldn't include Scooby or The Mystery Machine. 

August 16, 2021, they gave more information on the characters, including Shaggy, Daphne and Fred, which was disturbing to say the least.  

No release date has been announced, so I guess we have to wait and see on this one!

Mindy Kaling appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on July 23, 2021 and she claimed she loves Velma! My question is, if she loves Velma so much, why is she changing everything about her? She is essentially creating a whole new character but using the Velma name. It frustrates me so much when people do that. If you love a character so much, you should be building on them, not recreating them. 


We are only 19 days in to 2022 and I wonder what else is coming for us Scooby-Doo fans! What are you most excited to see out of everything listed?

My Favorite Scooby-Doo Plush

I have quite a few plush Scooby's and this one just happens to be my favorite. This 13" tall Scooby-Doo is from Six Flags and he has a Scooby puppet on one hand and a Shaggy puppet on the other. The puppets are what make this for me! I just think the puppets are so adorable! The little Scooby (at least, I think it's Scooby and not Scrappy) is soooo cute and Shaggy with his messy hair is cute too! 

I first saw this Scooby listed on Facebook Marketplace for $15.00 and I had asked the seller to ship it to me, but she refused. I gave up on it, but then saw it was still available a few weeks later and I messaged her again to see if she would ship it to me. This time, the seller ignored me. I never heard anything back. 

About 2 months later, I saw Scooby was still listed. The seller was located in Long Branch, NJ, which was just an hour and a half from me, and things were starting to open back up after being shut down due to Covid. At the time, I had no idea that this was going to be my favorite plush, I just knew that it was so cute and I hadn't seen it before. Plus, it came with a little candy machine (pictured below). I messaged the seller and asked if I could pick it up. She said yes, and my husband and I drove the hour and a half to pick up Scooby! 

As soon as I got him, he was just too awesome! He was a great find! 

He will make an appearance in the Scooby Panel on December 17th when we talk about our favorite Scooby collectibles in our collections and our grails! 

Scooby is copyright 2008.

Review: Straight Outta Nowhere! Scooby-Doo! Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog

** Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. **
** Contains Spoilers**


I finally got to sit down and watch this movie for a second time so I could do this review. The very first thing I noticed...the Mystery Machine has a license plate and it says ZOINKS! Already, we're off to a good start!




The second thing that stood out was that Scooby called himself a dog! Usually, he's like "Rog, Rhere?" but in this movie he says "I'm not a chicken, I'm a dog!" (Scooby seems to have learned how to pronounce all of his letters in recent years!)

The opening credits were fun. They really put in a lot of effort to make them exciting and to include a lot of Easter Eggs from both Scooby-Doo and Courage the Cowardly Dog. The whole carnival game theme was a nice idea and the way they implemented the characters into it made it really enjoyable. 


This was definitely a Courage movie with Scooby and the gang going to Nowhere and not being the heroes. I remember watching Courage the Cowardly Dog years ago and thinking 2 things...1. this show is super weird! and 2. I love the relationship between Courage and Muriel. It was such a heartwarming bond. Sadly, Thea White passed away on July 30, 2021 before the movie came out, but I am so happy she got to voice Muriel one last time. 

I was a bit sidetracked when the credits were rolling because my son came home from work and he was telling me some fun stories, but I don't recall them doing anything at the end to honor Thea White. If I'm wrong, let me know. Like I said, I wasn't fully paying attention.

A third thing stood out to me in this movie...the bond between Shaggy and Scooby. They were genuinely wanting to keep each other safe and help the other one when they were in trouble. I know we see this all the time, but it was nice to see that they didn't try to use Courage to come between their friendship to make the story more dramatic. (Ugh...like in Scoob!!)

I thought it was funny that Shaggy kept calling Courage a little pink dude and Eustace an angry old dude and Eustace was calling Shaggy a shaggy haired fella. It added a little humor to the movie.

I think crossing over with Courage was super fun, especially since Courage is as scared of monsters as Shaggy and Scooby. They fit well together! Also, Courage and Eustace sharing their love of food brought them together, even if just for a minute. Courage even had his own snacks!

Greedy old Eustace was in heaven when the people brought him all the gold and jewels, but that rap he did was a little over the top. I mean, I was laughing so hard because it was just ridiculous to see this old man, shirtless, wearing what looked like an adult diaper under his pants with this huge chain around his neck rapping. 

The one thing I didn't like about the movie was the way they treated the Mystery Machine. At least it didn't blow up, they had Eustace's truck do that, but the side swiping of the Mystery Machine was just not a fun scene to watch. It made me cringe. Though the damage was minimal when you think about it. The Mystery Machine rolls over several times, I mean it literally should not have been drivable after they were done with it, but the Mystery Machine came out looking like nothing ever happened. (For more weird things in Scooby-Doo, including the Mystery Machine being destroyed and good as new 5 minutes later, check out our latest Scooby Panel.)

The Dark Matter Meteor, also known as the disco ball as I had deemed it while watching the movie, ended up transforming everyone into different shapes. While it was a fun scene, they could have done better transformations. 

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. I even called the villains at the end in a conversation I had with someone. It just made sense, knowing that the movie was taking place in Nowhere. That dance scene was a fun way to end the movie too. 

Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo! Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog was released on September 14, 2021 and is available now on DVD.
