"You don't know what you've uncovered... A truth that should have remained hidden—the truth behind the curse of Crystal Cove! The real mystery has just begun."The New Tens
— Mr. E.
take on the Scooby-Doo
franchise, which premiered July 12, 2010, with a sneak peek shown April 5, 2010.
This series offers a fresh take on the franchise. It uses elements from nearly all previous incarnations, but is clearly aimed at an older audience than usual. It is prone to Lampshade Hanging
and a more ironic, dark sense of humor. Often it will poke fun at not only the Scooby-Doo franchise and other characters from the Hanna-Barbera
library, but also other works of horror fiction, covering a wide range of film, TV and literature Shout Outs
. The series also carries a scarier and more violent
tone compared to previous shows.
After Scooby and friends solve many mysteries around their home of Crystal Covenote
, the town decides it's had enough of them debunking prospective tourist attractions and cracks down on Mystery Inc.'s mystery solving. It doesn't work. Hilarity Ensues
No one, not overbearing parents, nor an obnoxiously obstructive sheriff
, nor a mayor who's more interested in tourism than solving crimes
(and is also
an overbearing parent), nor the mysterious Mr. E and the supposed curse of Crystal Cove, can stop Mystery Inc.!
While featuring a typical Scooby-Doo formula
of Monster of the Week
that is unmasked at the end, the series also contains a Myth Arc
revolving around a cursed treasure buried under the town which slowly and steady pours on the Nightmare Fuel
Season 2 started on July 30, 2012, airing weekdays at 2 PM EDT. It was stopped after episode 41; the remaining eleven episodes aired starting March 25, 2013 at 5 PM and 5:30 EDT on that day, then 5 PM for the rest of the run.
