Who’s the cartoon dog who’s afraid of everything, protects the ones he loves, and has to fight monsters and madmen regularly? Well, that’s kind of a trick question because there have been a few over the years. In this case, we’re getting two of the biggest icons in one movie together soon! Check out the trailer below just released today.
Per Syfy Wire: Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog, Scooby and the Mystery Machine gang get a close encounter with Courage, Muriel, Eustace and the weirdness that usually surrounds the town of Nowhere, Kansas. According to the official synopses:
An original animated feature so exciting it’s scratching at the door! Comedy is unleashed when Scooby-Doo, your favorite mystery-solving mutt, teams up for the first time with Courage the Cowardly Dog. The canine colleagues sniff out a strange object in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas, the backwoods hometown of Courage and his owners, Eustace and Muriel Bagge. Soon, the mysterious discovery puts them on the trail of a giant cicada monster and her wacky winged warriors. Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy know that this job is too big for a flyswatter. They’ll need the help of the doggy duo to piece together the puzzle. Can Scooby and Courage overcome their jitters and defeat the insect army before the whole world bugs out? Try not to get scared. We double-dog dare you!
Looks like real life cicada season is making for a timely insect monster mystery! From the trailer, I could already see a number of references to the original Courage The Cowardly Dog series from locations to homages to prior monsters and it definitely seems like the people behind this ambitious crossover are fans of both spooky properties. Plus, it’s fun to see Courage and Scooby become fast frightened friends!
Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog will be released on digital and DVD Tuesday, September 14th 2021.
