Night of the Living Doo is an animated television special that aired on October 31, 2001.[1] The cartoon is a comedic parody of a typical episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, complete with unlikely guests and a retro style. The name is a riff on the Night of the Living Dead franchise. The special was produced by Cartoon Network and broadcast in small segments during commercial breaks of a Halloween Scooby-Doo marathon. At the end of the marathon, the complete special was broadcast in its entirety.

The special featured a new opening title sequence combining the opening for The New Scooby-Doo Movies with clips of the special, set to the cover of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! theme song as performed by Matthew Sweet for Saturday Morning: Cartoons' Greatest Hits.


Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang pick up a hitchhiking Gary Coleman, and the Mystery Machine soon proceeds to break down multiple times, finally leaving them stranded at a haunted castle owned by David Cross. The show contained multiple references and gags that take jabs at the original show, musical numbers by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and concluded with a nonsensical ending, with Coleman pointing out all of the plot holes in the story. Scooby interrupts him by licking his face until the episode ends.
