Presented by Warner Bros.

Giving Scooby-Doo fans of all ages a chance to see the cast of sleuths and their comical brand of detective work on stage, the live show is scheduled to perform in approximately 45 cities throughout the United States, including a run in Los Angeles at the new Kodak Theatre complex located in the heart of historic Hollywood. Return engagements include: Wallingford, Boston, Columbus, Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa. In this exciting production, the beloved Hanna-Barbera characters -- Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred -- will take to the stage to solve a classic Scooby-Doo style mystery. The show takes the form of a “long lost episode” in which Scooby-Doo and friends solve the mystery of a supernatural specter wreaking havoc at the old Clawhammer movie studio. The gang faces one hilarious situation after another as they hunt for clues on the set of a monster movie directed by Daphne’s totally hip uncle. All-original episodes of "What’s New Scooby-Doo?" can be seen on Kids’ WB! every Saturday morning at 8:30 am ET/7:30 am PT. "What’s New Scooby-Doo?" brings the classic meddling Scooby gang to the 21st century as they travel the world in the Mystery Machine, solving the comedy capers that come their way. The new adventure series performs strongly among its Saturday morning time period competition in the key kids, boys and girls demograhics. Classic "Scooby-Doo" episodes will return to Kids’ WB!s weekday line-up, beginning Tuesday, December 24, at 3:00 p.m. The mystery series will air on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
