It’s happening. Two iconic canines will get to team up in the upcoming full-length animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog will be released on Digital and DVD come September 14, 2021.
Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog will retail for $14.99 SRP ($19.99 SRP Canada) for the DVD. Along with the movie, the release will include three bonus classic Scooby-Doo! episodes.
The official description reads:
An original animated feature so exciting it’s scratching at the door! Comedy is unleashed when Scooby-Doo, your favorite mystery-solving mutt, teams up for the first time with Courage the Cowardly Dog. The canine colleagues sniff out a strange object in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas, the backwoods hometown of Courage and his owners, Eustace and Muriel Bagge. Soon, the mysterious discovery puts them on the trail of a giant cicada monster and her wacky winged warriors. Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy know that this job is too big for a flyswatter. They’ll need the help of the doggy duo to piece together the puzzle. Can Scooby and Courage overcome their jitters and defeat the insect army before the whole world bugs out? Try not to get scared. We double-dog dare you!
The cast includes Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers, and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley. It also features Jeff Bergman as Eustice Bagge, Marty Grabstein as Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Thea White as Muriel Bagge.
Produced and directed by Cecilia Aranovich and written by Mike Ryan, the film has been executive produced by Sam Register.
Here’s the fun trailer! (It includes a number of Easter Eggs!)
As a fan of both franchises, I’m looking forward to this crossover. With Courage dealing with actual supernatural stuff, let’s see if things will be changed to fit Scooby-Doo‘s usual non-supernatural mysteries or if it will be a blend of both.
The Bonus Episodes include:
- Scooby Doo, Where Are You! “Decoy for a Dognapper”
- The Scooby Doo/Dynomutt Hour, “The Gruesome Game of the Gator Ghoul”
- The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, “Chiller Diller Movie Thriller”
Created by John R. Dilworth, Courage the Cowardly Dog animated series debuted back in November of 1999 and ran until November of 2002 for a total of 52 episodes. A CGI animated special was released in October of 2014. (via Wikipedia)
I’m just glad Courage is coming back with more content through this crossover. Here’s to hoping we get a proper revival down the line.
For those wondering Dilworth tweeted about having no involvement in the current project.
