For more than fifty years, Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. Gang have entertained families with their light-hearted antics and altruistic mystery adventures. To bring the do-good spirit of Scooby-Doo to longtime fans and new generations, Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) has launched a new collection of toys, apparel, home goods, pet products and even Scooby Snacks, inspired by the upcoming animated feature film SCOOB!, available at Walmart and Walmart.com. SCOOB!, is a new adventure that explores the never-before told stories of Scooby-Doo’s origins and the greatest mystery in the career of the young detectives of Mystery Inc. SCOOB! reveals how lifelong friends Scooby and Shaggy first met and how they joined with young detectives Fred, Velma and Daphne to form the famous Mystery Inc. SCOOB! will be available for a 48-hour rental via Premium Video On Demand for $19.99, or premium digital ownership for $24.99, beginning on Friday, May 15.

Consumer Products. “As families come together during these trying times, we hope the new SCOOB! merchandise and our Doo Good campaign can help lift spirits and bring some joy into homes.”

Scooby-Doo Do Good
Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang may not look like it at first, but at their core, they are heroes. Despite being coined “meddling kids” by villains unmasked, the Mystery Inc. Gang is dedicated to sleuthing out solutions to problems. Their mission to help others continues in a real-world way with the Scooby-Doo “Doo Good” Campaign. Launching in 2018 in partnership with generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, this effort is designed to inspire, equip and mobilize kids and families to creative meaningful change in their communities. In 2020, the #DooGood campaign will award 13 one thousand-dollar grants to applicants across the U.S. who submitted requests to fund their Doo Good community projects.
Living alongside the campaign is a dedicated platform that serves as the home for parents and kids to get involved. Fun and easy-to-understand guides to help the hungry, enrich the environment, and act as animal allies are available for download. Learn more here.
