Scooby -doo, Where are you ?

Scooby Doo ~ one of my favorite cartoon, even I'm 30+ now .

Scooby-Doo was originally broadcast on CBS from 1969 to 1976.

These five characters ~ Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Velma & Daphne (or officially collectively known as "Mystery, Inc.") drive around the world in a van called the "Mystery Machine", and solve mysteries typically involving tales of ghosts and other supernatural forces. At the end of each episode, the supernatural forces turn out to have a rational explanation, typically criminal plots involving costumes, latex masks and special effects intended to frighten or distract. Later versions of Scooby-Doo featured different variations on the show's supernatural theme, and include characters such as Scooby's cousin Scooby-Dum and nephew Scrappy-Doo in addition to or instead of some of the original characters.

Friend of mine gave me this postcard when my visit to UK ....sometimes in Year 2002 (hope that I'm not mistaken).

In the movie, Mystery Inc. consisting of Scooby-Doo (voiced by Neil Fanning), Shaggy (played by Matthew Lillard), Fred (played by Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Velma (played by Linda Cardellini), and Daphne (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar), splits up following a major argument, leaving Scooby and Shaggy to continue as Mystery Inc. and to take care of the Mystery Machine.

The gang are reunited as each is individually invited to Spooky Island, a "frightfully" popular theme park owned by Emile Mondavarious (played by Rowan Atkinson). Once on the island, Mondavarious tells the gang that students are mysteriously becoming mindless zombies and only utter pop phrases. And the story ...continue.

Hey this is awesome, love the poster with Rowan's character on it - especially seeing as Scoob is hiding behind him - plus Rowan's character looks really sinister there.
