Trivia / Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

Go To

  • Adored by the Network: This show was renewed for season 2 before the show even premiered. This show no doubt was caught up in the AT&T planned reorganizing of Warner Media. It was started before the merger was complete but was kept in production with this season two pick up when the other HB/RS/MGM legacy properties were quietly ended most of which with episodes not yet on Boomerang. While full reorganization of the channel under AT&T has yet to be realized (as AT&T has pretty much decided to end separate Turner management by giving Cartoon Network and Boomerang to Warner Bros in their entirety) the decision was made to have this series air on Cartoon Network first and before ending the other series on Boomerang implies heavily this show was already prepared to be the new starting point. (The fact that other HB characters have already appeared on it and WB announced a new Flintstones series before the previous one even debuted on Boomerang have pretty much cemented this prediction)

  • Fake Brit: Ian James Corlett, who is Canadian-American, plays Sherlock Holmes.
  • I Knew It!: The guest star appearances of other Hanna-Barbera properties such as The Funky Phantom as well as DC Comics characters and public domain characters was expected due to previous Scooby-Doo and Hanna-Barbera media doing the same in the past.
  • Invisible Advertising: While Warner Brothers releases myriad promos for new episodes online, on Cartoon Network proper there are no advertisements for new episodes of this series, which run once a week (and so far only once a week), except for a one second blurb while the episode is already running that the show is "next". This is in stark contrast to one of the other three WB animation shows currently running on CN, Teen Titans Go!, which often has a countdown timer obscuring part of the new Scooby Doo episode to promote -its- new episode screening later in the day which is promoted every commercial break and then rerun often.

  • Meaningful Release Date: "What A Night For A Dark Knight", the episode where Batman guest-starred, was released two days before Batman's anniversary day, September 21, 2019.
  • Milestone Celebration: The show came out in 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Scooby-Doo franchise.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Jaleel White made it clear on Twitter that acting in a Scooby-Doo show is a bucket list item for him, as a signed Scooby-Doo animation cel is one of his prized collectibles.
  • Role Reprisal:
  • Same Content, Different Rating: The show is fairly light-hearted as your typical Scooby-Doo show, yet it carries a TV-PG rating, a first for the franchise.
  • Screwed by the Network: Cartoon Network just stopped airing the show after 6 episodes despite initial reports saying that episodes would air there a week after Boomerang and even uploading clips on days the episodes would have aired. However the episodes have yet to be dropped to the Boomerang channel as they would have been in the old days, and Scooby himself returned to the main channel again just not this series. It seems obvious the above mentioned reorganizing still hasn't ironed out all the old WB vs Turner kinks yet.
  • Talking to Herself: In episode two, Kate Micucci voices Velma and April from The Funky Phantom. Additionally, Tom Kenny voices Augie and Mudsy in the same episode, and in episode three Frank Welker voices Magilla Gorilla, albeit only in more realistic ape grunts this time around in addition to his usual roles of Scooby and Fred.
  • What Could Have Been: One of the promotional posters depicts Batman in his Justice League Action design.
