A new live action/CGI mixed Scooby-Doo flick comes out today, straight to DVD/Blu-ray.

In “Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins,” the gang unites for the first time to solve a haunting at their high school. Along the way, we learn the back stories of Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, himself.

Scooby debuted in 1969 and has spawned 10 television series, seven TV specials, two live action films and a dozen made-for-video animated movies. A new animated TV series and more DVDs are now in production.

Special features on “The Mystery Begins” include:

  • Coolsville Yearbook — The actors who play Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy reveal even more of their character’s back-story including what they do in their spare time, their favorite foods, what they want to
    do when they grow up, and a secret time capsule message for the future that can be solved by finding clues hidden within the DVD enhanced content.
  • Velma, Daphne, Fred or Shaggy? Personality Quiz — Are you a brain, a drama queen, a jock or a loveable nerd? By navigating a series of questions, you can decide which member of the Mystery Inc. gang you
    are most like.
  • Character Pop Up Factoid Track — Velma gives scientific and trivia factoids, Daphne offers stylish and dramatic interpretations, Fred flexes his muscles, and everything reminds Shaggy of food. Available on Blu-Ray Hi-Def only.
