Chronology
Preceded by Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (2010–13)
Followed by Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? (2019)[2]

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! is an American animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the twelfth incarnation of Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo animated series. In the show, the Scooby-Doo gang decide to travel in their last summer break together, encountering havoc-wreaking monsters along the way. Described as having a more comedic tone than its previous incarnation, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, the show employs character traits from the original 1969 series on top of redesigned character models.

The series was announced in March 2014 to premiere on Cartoon Network.[3] However, a promotional image at the 2015 upfront announced the show to air on Boomerang and the news was later confirmed on June 29, 2015.[4][5][6] It was originally scheduled to air on Boomerang,[7] but the series instead premiered on Cartoon Network on October 5, 2015.[8] On March 7, 2017, it was announced that the remaining unaired episodes would be released on Boomerang's video on demand streaming service.[1] Despite this, the final eleven episodes premiered on the Boomerang television network.

Plot[edit]

The redesigned main characters, as they appear in the series

After finishing up their senior year of high school, the Scooby-Doo gang decide to travel in the Mystery Machine, seeking fun and adventure during what could possibly be their last summer break together. However, havoc-wreaking monsters prevent them from completing their journey.[9]

Voice cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! was announced in March 2014, along with other reboots of Warner Bros. classics, such as The Tom and Jerry Show and Wabbit.[14] Sam Register, promoted to president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series a month prior, is its supervising producer.[15] The animation direction is performed by Shaunt Nigoghossian,[16] with Richard Lee overseeing art direction.[17] Episodes run for a half-hour.[9]

The twelfth series in the Scooby-Doo franchise, the show was previewed in an article from a Comic-Con edition of TV Guide,[18] writing that it would be less dark than its previous incarnation, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Zac Moncrief, a producer, called it "a more comedic ensemble", with character traits extracted from the original 1969 series. This decision nulled the romantic subplots present in Mystery Incorporated. Scooby-Doo has limited dialogue. Meanwhile, Fred has upgraded the Mystery Machine with modern appliances.[19]

In addition, the series employs redesigned character models for the gang, retaining their original clothes, with a few design tweaks. Moncrief described this as a "simplistic, edgy design to match the comedic styling of this latest version." However, he denied it as "a campy or meta version" of Scooby-Doo.[19]

This marks the first Scooby-Doo television series where Casey Kasem does not have a role in the series; Kasem, who voiced Shaggy from 1969 to 2009, retired from voice acting due to declining health during the production of Mystery Incorporated and died on June 15, 2014. Kasem's death leaves Frank Welker as the only remaining original cast member still with the franchise. It is also the first series since A Pup Named Scooby-Doo where Velma is voiced by an actress other than Mindy Cohn.

Broadcast[edit]

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! made its global debut on October 4, 2015 on Boomerang in the United Kingdom and Ireland[20][21] and premiered on Teletoon in Canada on October 8.[22] The series premiered on Boomerang in Australia and New Zealand on December 28.[23]
