Looking back on the phenomenon that was the original SCOOBY DOO cartoon it’s pretty hard to see how it was so popular. Aside from Scooby Doo and (zoicks!) Shaggy it was always the same old story; some bloke with some beef about something would get dressed up and try to scare people away from some random location for no apparant reason. Also, he was often the only other character introduced aside from our heroes so the ‘reveal’ was never that surprising.

However, Warner Bros. seems to think that the franchise has legs still and has released a synopsis for the movie that will focus on the two main female leads Daphne and Velma. Check it out below and strike back with your thoughts in the comments. Will Scooby Doo make a surprise cameo or will Scrappy Doo appear to steal the show perhaps? Here’s hoping…

“Daphne and Velma” tells the story of Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley before they team up with Scooby and the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang. The mystery-solving teens are best friends but have only met online — until Daphne transfers to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, stocked with high-tech gadgetry by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. While their peers vie for a coveted internship at Bloom’s company, Daphne and Velma try to uncover the reason why the school’s brightest students are disappearing — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state”
