"Aloha Scooby-Doo!" carries on the rich tradition of the world famous cartoon that has entertained millions of fans for more than 30 years. Scooby-Doo continues to be one of the most beloved brands among kids 6-11 and moms with over 95% awareness (Spring 2004 Q Score Report) and appeals equally to both boys and girls. Scooby-Doo's extraordinary success has resulted in a host of titles for television, made-for-video movies, and a 2002 live action feature film starring Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini. The film was a major success, grossing over $153 million, which prompted Warner Bros. Pictures to develop and produce a sequel. "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" opened in theaters nationwide in March 2004, grossed $82 million to date at the box office, and was released recently in the home video marketplace. The "What's New Scooby-Doo?," "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo," and "Scooby-Doo Where Are You? "TV series can be found on Cartoon Network, reaching 88 million households. Other classic Scooby-Doo series air on Boomerang, which reaches 12 million households. By the end of 2004, all Scooby-Doo licensed products will have generated close to $1 billion at retail.
"Scooby-Doo is the leading animated kids franchise within Warner Home Video and we anticipate that 'Aloha Scooby-Doo!' will continue the tradition of delivering quality entertainment enjoyed by children and adults," said Christine Martinez, WHV Vice-President, Non-theatrical Franchise Marketing. "This is a must have title for the Scooby collector of all ages."
