Burbank, Calif. – Oct. 30, 2017 – Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?! Just ask ALEXA… Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in partnership with digital innovator RAIN, blends immersive storytelling and voice technology in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater, a new kids’ skill that is available today on Alexa-enabled devices, including the Echo and Echo Dot. Scooby and the Gang are working together to reveal who (or what!) is haunting the Mayhew Mansion but they can’t crack the case alone. With its unique format and responsive design, the skill invites kids and their families to participate in the adventure and help solve the mystery!
“We’re proud to bring Scooby-Doo to life in a new way that pushes boundaries of how people are interacting with voice technology today,” said Maryellen Zarakas, Senior Vice President of Franchise Management & Marketing for Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “We’re providing a new ‘family night in’ tradition that encourages kids and families to engage and fuel their imaginations as they embark on an interactive mystery-adventure with the Scooby Gang.”
By simply saying, Alexa, open Scooby-Doo, kids and their families can follow and work alongside Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma to unravel the secrets behind their latest caper at the Mayhew Mansion. Throughout the story, the Narrator (voiced by Maurice LaMarche) asks what the characters should do next – like, “go down the hallway to the left” or “stay outside” – and it is up to the at-home detectives to make the choice. With numerous possible storyline combinations, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater delivers hours of family fun activity that can be played time-and-time again.
