Genius Brands International, Inc. continues to rapidly populate its premier digital platform, Kartoon Channel!, with the most successful kid’s content, anytime, anywhere for free, now bringing five Scooby-Doo animated movies from Warner Bros. Entertainment to the channel to launch “Friday Family Fun Films” on March 5, 2021.
Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy will kick-off Kartoon Channel!’s “Friday Family Fun Films” with four additional Scooby-Doo! movies rolling throughout 2021, including Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King (May), Scooby-Doo! on Zombie Island (July), Scooby-Doo! & the Legend of the Vampire (October), and lastly, Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Rolly Mystery, starring the voice talents of the timeless rock band phenomenon, KISS. Additionally, the channel will feature films from Genius Brands’ library, including Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, Rainbow Rangers special, guest starring Pierce Brosnan, and more titles to be added weekly.
“Scooby-Doo is one of the most successful animated franchises of all time. It spans three generations of viewers and continues to be a blockbuster success today as strong as ever. It is a particular thrill for me to have Scooby join the Kartoon Channel! family. I began my career as a writer at Hanna-Barbera, and the first show I worked on was Scooby-Doo. The great Frank Welker played the voice of Freddie in the first shows back then, and later that of Scooby himself in these amazing films that will come to Kartoon Channel!. The KISS band members did their own voices in the Scooby-Doo! movie that they guest starred in. They too are timeless, and today continue to have a huge devoted following,” said Andy Heyward, Genius Brands’ Chairman & CEO.
“We’re launching the ‘Friday Family Fun Films’ event with one of the most beloved animated properties in the world, Scooby-Doo, bringing the hijinks, laughter, and yes, the unmasking of villains known to kids and families worldwide,” commented Jon Ollwerther, EVP Business Development and General Manager of Kartoon Channel! at Genius Brands. “We will also be showcasing titles from our own catalog, such as Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, from the mind of one of the most creative geniuses of all time, and the animated adventure, Rainbow Rangers, featuring a special starring Pierce Brosnan. This is just the beginning for Kartoon Channel! as we bring new and exciting family-friendly features weekly to our line-up throughout the year!”
