Scooby Doo Adult Costumes
Scooby Doo costumes for Halloween sound pretty good, but let's find out a little bit more about Scooby. This talking dog began his long run on TV, along with his friends in Mystery Inc., in 1969. These cartoon characters have been making kids laugh for forty years! The writers got together and tried to decide what breed of dog to base Scooby on. It was decided to use a Great Dane...but Scooby isn't the AKC standard of this breed at all!
The Cartoon Characters are :
- Fred "Freddie" Jones
- Daphne Blake
- Velma Dinkley
- Norville "Shaggy" Rogers
. These four characters are reminicent of the Dobie Gillis gang. Fred is based on Dobie, Shaggy on Maynard, Velma on Zelda, Daphne on Thalia. Each of these four characters has a distinct personality and talent. Fred, the leader of the group, is a determined detective. Velma is the intellignt analyst, Daphne is the brave dare devil and Shaggy is, along with Scooby, a big chicken. These two do more investigating of food than any thing mysterious. They are always hungry!
In 2002 a Scooby Doo Movie was made.
- Fred was played by Freddie Prinze, Jr.
- Daphne was played by Sarah Michelle Gellar
- Velma was played by Linda Cardellini
- Shaggy was played by Matthew Lillard
We have computer-generated special effects to thank for Scooby.
In 2004 a second movie was released, Monsters Unleashed. Both films were successful and gave new life to the already popular cartoon story.
And due out in Sept 2009 for DVD release, is the third movie, The Mystery Begins. This new movie also has a new cast. They are:
- Nick Palatas as Norville "Shaggy" Rogers
- Kate Melton as Daphne Blake
- Robbie Amell as Fred Jones
- Hayley Kiyoko as Velma Dinkley
There is also an upcoming video game release, Scooby Doo! First Frights The Video Game, in Sept. 2009.
