Scooby Doo in "The Siren's Song"

Unhappy Fish Freak
Hey kids! I wrote an episode of Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated that'll air this coming Tuesday (6/14/11) on Cartoon Network at 7:30/6:30 Central.

I think it's a pretty cool episode with a fair chunk of the series wide story arc being revealed. That's one of the things I'm really enjoying about this Scooby manifestation -- we get to learn about the back story of "the gang" and that maybe all of these seemingly random monster events are somehow interrelated. Anyway, the show's producers have a lot to keep in mind since they're not just generating the typical Scooby Doo "monster du jour" story lines we're used to seeing.

In this episode the gang battles Fish Freaks, there's a fun Scrappy Doo reference, and Velma makes a "special friend." Check it out and let me know what you think!

Thanks, Doralynn! I love writing for animation and this show has been particularly fun to work on -- nice and funny people, clever series-wide arc, etc.

OMG (I absolutely hate that expression but in this case, it was appropriate!) My daughter enjoys Scooby Doo and we just started watching the Mystery Incorporated Series. Surprisingly I found myself really enjoying the story arc! To discover a blogger who wrote one of the episodes is a true OMG moment for me.

Anyway, I found you via the PBC. You are in my group (MG/YA). So happy you decided to join. I look forward to reading more from you!

Thanks, Brianna. I'm glad you like the show. So far, I've written five episodes and hope that it gets picked up so I can write more -- so much fun!
