    Release Features Bonus Scooby-Doo! Episodes

    BURBANK, CA (November 29, 2016) – Get set for a rootin’-tootin’ good time with Scooby-Doo! and the gang on Scooby-Doo! Shaggy’s Showdown, the all-new, original film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE), available on DVD February 14, 2017. Cowboys and cowgirls of all ages won’t want to miss this brand new, western-themed mystery in which Scooby-Doo! and his friends visit a dude ranch that’s haunted by ghastly outlaw Dapper Jack Rogers. It’s the Scooby-Doo! gang like you’ve never seen before, riding horses and living like cowboys on a real western ranch. Scooby-Doo! Shaggy’s Showdown DVD will retail for $19.98 SRP. Scooby-Doo! Shaggy’s Showdown is also available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers.

    It’s high action and spirited adventure when the Mystery Inc. gang visits the Crazy Q Dude Ranch, located in Sorghum City, an abandoned cowboy town–turned–tourist attraction. While visiting his cousin Tawny, Shaggy and his pals discover that the Crazy Q Dude Ranch, owned by Tawny’s family, is tormented by a ghostly cowboy named Dapper Jack Rogers, an ancestor who bears a striking resemblance to Shaggy!

    The gang soon learns that Dapper Jack’s ghostly apparition has frightened most of the visitors from the ranch and nearby Sorghum City, forcing many businesses in the area to close. Without any tourists, the Crazy Q Dude Ranch, which has been struggling, is sure to close its doors. Unless Tawny raises enough money for the next mortgage payment, the family business will be sold.

    Determined to save his cousin’s ranch, Shaggy puts the Mystery Inc. gang on the case, and together they set out to solve the mystery behind Dapper Jack’s haunting. It’s an unforgettable adventure set in the wild West, filled with rodeos, barn dances and non-stop cowboy high-jinks!

    Fans of the Scooby-Doo! franchise will be thrilled to learn that Scooby-Doo! Shaggy’s Showdown features the familiar voice talents of Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley.

    Yup, I've been waiting with baited breath for another Scooby-Doo movie :lol:.

    Seriously, I never saw the appeal, even from the POV of my inner child (same goes for Barney, that ridiculous, silly a-hole). This is witless entertainment that I feel just dumbs-down children's critical thinking and any innate resistance to crap. Cartoon-wise, give them more Warner Bros., MGM, Paramount, Disney and other classic cartoons, where at least the characters are well-developed and the scripts witty and the animation sublime. This stupid-ass dog just doesn't have a truly intelligent moment that I've ever seen, and I suffered through enough of them with my two daughters (who, incidentally, almost never laughed at his adventures, but rather just sat on the floor cross-legged and zombie-eyed) who I tried to steer toward Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry and Donald Duck, which frequently DID make them laugh, right along with me). As for Scooby himself, the Soupy Sales Show did the mumbled, non-verbal dog schtick much better with White Fang and Black Claw, and the dumb-ass Scooby noises were nothing more than an obnoxious rip-off.

    Try to guide your kids toward great and often literate cartoons, not this empty drivel!

    Rant over. Flame barrier in place.
