Cartoon Network is calling once again upon the world's greatest teenage
super-sleuths and their Great Dane co-hort to help solve yet another
spooky mystery in SCOOBY-DOO! CURSE OF THE LAKE MONSTER, premiering
Saturday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) during Flicks, a weekend destination
for family-targeted movies. An all-new, live-action/CG movie from Warner
Premiere, the feature-length production serves as a follow-up to the 2009
record-setting Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, the most-watched telecast
in Cartoon Network history. SCOOBY-DOO! CURSE OF THE LAKE MONSTER features
the familiar Mystery Inc. cast of characters - Fred, Daphne, Velma,
Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo - in their high school years as they continue to
develop and sharpen their combined detective skills.
SCOOBY-DOO! CURSE OF THE LAKE MONSTER finds the Mystery Inc. gang
heading toward summer jobs at a country club owned by Daphne's uncle, only
to stumble onto strange happenings around the local lake - including
mystical moonstones, creepy characters and a Frog Monster on the loose.
There's mystery afoot and romance in the air that only the fearful
foursome-plus-one - group leader Fred, lovely Daphne, brainiac Velma,
soulful yet fun-loving Shaggy and the cowardly but ever-hungry Scooby-Doo
- can solve.
