Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins Set for September 13

World Premiere on Cartoon Network

New Live-Action Movie Reveals Origin Story Behind Mystery Inc. Gang

Television Debut Marks 40th Anniversary of Scooby-Doo

For the first time in history, the never-before-told story of how the Mystery Inc. gang first joined forces will be revealed in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins. A co-production of Warner Premiere and Cartoon Network, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins combines adventurous storytelling, stylized CGI visuals and a new, young live-action cast to bring the origin story of Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo to life. The two-hour movie will make its television debut on Sunday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT) during Cartoon Network Flicks, a destination for movies.

In Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, Coolsville High is plagued by a suspicious haunting, and everyone is accusing Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy of playing a spooky prank. Suddenly, the school athlete, the science fair-winning brainiac, the drama beauty and the school misfit must band together to clear their names. With Shaggy's newly adopted dog Scooby-Doo tagging along, the mismatched quartet soon discovers they have more in common than they originally thought.

The live-action cast features Robbie Amell (Life With Derek, True Jackson) as Fred, along with Kate Melton as Daphne, Hayley Kiyoko as Velma and Nick Palatas as Shaggy. Frank Welker, a member of the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! voice-cast, provides the voice of Scooby-Doo. Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins is directed by Brian Levant (Snow Dogs, The Flintstones), produced by Brian Gilbert (Wrong Turn) and written by Daniel and Steven Altiere (Dr. Dolittle: A Tinsel Town Tail, Gym Teacher: The Movie). Warner Home Video will release Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins on DVD and Blu-Ray´┐Ż Hi-Def Combo Pack on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The world's most famous Great Dane first appeared on television screens on Sept. 13, 1969. Over the past four decades, the Scooby-Doo characters have spawned 10 television series (spanning some 300 episodes), seven TV specials/telefilms, three live-action films and 12 made-for-video animated films. Scooby-Doo the animated series is the longest continually running cartoon series in television history, and, coincidentally, one of the longest-running mystery series in television history.
