    Disney is rumored to be acquiring the rights to Scooby Do! Wow! What a franchise! Maybe a whole land at WDW. It could be epic! Will future movies be in the works? Will Velma or Daphne be a Princess? Fingers crossed.

    Isn't Scooby Doo contracted to Universal for theme parks already?

    We already have Pluto and Goofy. No need for another dog. Cedar Fair had Scooby Doo until they switched to Peanuts. I really hope Disney doesn't do this. Not a good fit, IMHO.

    I have noticed Scooby Doo rides at a couple of Six Flags parks that I have been at.

    I got my pic made with Scooby at Six flags this past summer - so I think they will have to talk to 6 flags

    Scooby is a Hanna Barbara character which is now owned by Time Warner. Meaning, Disney would probably have to buy Time Warner to acquire the rights to Scooby. And that would mean acquiring the rights to....Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Fred Flintstone, Road Runner, Yogi Bear, and probably 2/3 of the cartoon characters out there that are not already under the Disney umbrella.

    Velma and Daphne princesses I sure hope not. Dont get me wrong love all things Scooby Doo I grew up watching those when Saturday morning cartoons were only on Saturday morning and not 24/7 networks but making them princesses im not too sure about that. But this is a rumors board so we will have to wait and see. Besides didn't Disney just shell out like $4 Bil for the Star Wars franchise?

    Six Flags St. Louis actually has a well-done Scooby Doo ride that is basically like WDW's Buzz Lightyear ride, only it is set on water. And some of the targets will shoot water back at you if you hit them. Pretty cool, actually.

    Awesome dude, maybe a Mystery Machiene simulator complete with the delightful smell of hippie and munchies!

    So if the OP is true then its just going to be another Marvel. :( Owning the rights back can't use them in park. :goodvibes
