ALL AGES ASSAULT: Batman Asks 'Scooby-Doo Where Are You?'

Gargoyles on every roof, Two Face and the Scarecrow - yip, Gotham City's creepy, mysterious vibe makes it a perfect match for Batman and co., but what about Mystery, Inc?

Well, fans of all ages will soon find out, with Comics Continuum reporting Scooby-Doo will star in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's Batman: The Brave and the Bold, titled; Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!

This isn't the first time the Dark Knight Detective has paired up with the world's best whodunit hound-dog - in the 1970's Robin, Joker and even the Penguin got into the mix with The New Scooby Doo Movies. Read more after the jump.



The modern day Paul Dini written mash-up though, might finally answer a few long-standing questions, such as 'Will Batman deduce why the same plant keeps appearing as he runs further and further down the corridor?' and 'Why Daphne bears a striking resemblance to original Batgirl, Barbara Gordon?'

The waistline, the redhair... now there's a mystery worth investigating.

  1. Wow, this is great news! I have the original Batman/Scooby team-ups on DVD, and I watched those episodes whenever they were on TV as a kid. Can't wait to see what they do with the concept in an updated, current context!

  2. I agree Marc - it will be great seeing what a modern set of eyes can come up with!

    These kind of crossovers are great fun, but it does make you wonder what other team-ups of days gone by could do with a fresh coat of paint...

    Thanks for the comments!

  3. Hopefully you're not thinking of Scooby-Doo's team-ups with Sonny and Cher!

    And no problem at all...I've had a look around and really like the work you're doing here!

  4. Thanks Marc - It's great hearing feedback like that!

    Sonny and Cher? Well I bet they to drove round in a 'flower-power' painted combi van at some point too! :)

  5. I love how a man who saw his parents murdered as a child is in the same universe as a talking dog.
