The New Scooby Doo Movies was the place to be for 70's Hollywood stars! This week Jovial Jay and Shua celebrate this fun Scooby series and how much fun they were on Enjoy Stuff!
Hollywood guest stars galore on 1972’s The New Scooby Doo Movies! Join us as we look back on one of the most unique of the Scooby series.

What we’re Enjoying
Jay lept right into the new reboot of the Quantum Leap series, with Raymond Lee as the newest leaper. The premise follows a team that has been looking for Dr. Sam Beckett somewhere in time, but for reasons we aren’t yet aware of, Lee’s character Dr. Ben Song gets trapped for the same reason as the original. There’s a lot of potential here and we can’t wait to see where it goes. Shua got a bit more medieval by jumping into Amazon Prime’s Tolkien series Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. It’s an origin story of the rings that takes place in a whole different age as the Peter Jackson movies. He is loving it!
Sci-Fi Saturdays/MCU Location Scout
31 Days of Horror is coming on October 1! In the meantime, Sci-Fi Saturdays will be on a little break. But you can check out some cool new filming locations with his MCU Location Scout. There are new entries from She-Hulk and Thor: Love and Thunder. And don’t forget his articles on MCULocationScout.com for some great, interactive maps of filming locations.
In 1972 Hanna-Barbera debuted the second chapter of the still popular Scooby Doo series called “The New Scooby Doo Movies”. This popular series ran 24 hour-long episodes, the only Scooby Doo series to be that long. But what really made it stand out was the “real-life”-ish guest stars in each episode. These guest stars joined the Scooby gang to track down the truth of a mystery. A lot of the guests were voiced by their true life counterparts, or at least the voice actors that portrayed the animated characters on other Hanna-Barbera cartoons.
Some of our favorite guest stars were Don Knotts, the Harlem Globetrotters, Sandy Duncan, Davy Jones, Jonathan Winters, and Batman and Robin, and Don Adams. They got the opportunity to have fun with the Scooby gang and make us wonder who was going to be on next week.
