Scooby-Doo Inspired ‘Doo Good’ Campaign Launches This Month

Published

on

Warner Bros. and generationOn have partnered to create the Scooby-Doo ‘Doo Good’ campaign, an initiative for kids and their parents to band together and create change in their local communities.

By channeling the spirit of Scooby-Doo, the ‘Doo Good’ campaign demystifies the world of social good to kids in a relatable, youthful way. To kick off the campaign, ‘Doo Good’ will focus on three key initiatives throughout the year: Save the Environment, Fight Hunger and Animal Welfare.

Fun and easy-to-understand toolkit guides are available to download such as Velma’s Reading List, easy ways to ‘Doo Good,’ DIY projects with step-by-step instructions, and reflection questions for kids to cement what they learned along the way.

Also provided is an official ‘Doo Good’ Badge Book and badges for young philanthropists to track their achievements based on the toolkit. The microsite will also provide opportunities to share ‘Doo Good’ stories and spotlight participating kids at #DooGood through social media.

With a character like Scooby-Doo that parents love and kids can relate to, this is an invaluable connection when looking for ways to make something meaningful for today’s kids,” said Maryellen Zarakas, Senior Vice President of Franchise Management & Marketing for WBCP. “By presenting the complexities around social responsibility through engaging programming, we believe ‘Doo Good’ offers a platform that is easy to understand and easy to activate – and allows us to contribute to helping create the next generation of socially-conscious fans.”

By engaging children in service early on, they begin to lead a civic life, which in turn helps to create a civic culture,” said Tammea Tyler, Vice President of generationOn. “Partnering with an iconic brand like Scooby-Doo allows youth to get excited about service, and find ways to participate in a variety of important topics.”

‘Doo Good’ will kick off the campaign nationwide with the initiative, Save the Environment, on April 15, 2018, leading into Earth Day on April 22.

Published

on

I have never watched an episode of Freeform’s killer mermaid series Siren. I’ve heard (relatively) good things and I guess those things were (relatively) apt as today we have word that Freeform has renewed the series for a second season.

This word comes to us via Variety who says that Siren snagged a 16-episode second season renewal.

In the past year, our commitment to quality has been reflected back to us with a rousing chorus of critical and fan acclaim,” said Freeform president Tom Ascheim. “Our young adult audience is the most important and influential generation in America and we want to be right there with them every step of the way.”

Are you excited to know this killer mermais show will return for season 2? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

Legend has it that Bristol Cove was once home to mermaids. Now, this coastal town has a mysterious new visitor in a girl named Ryn, who may just prove that all of the stories are true. Ryn catches the eye of local marine biologist Ben, and when he begins to show interest, fellow marine biologist Maddie becomes suspicious. Others in town, like deep sea fisherman Xander, are on a quest to discover the truth that is out there, and Helen, the town eccentric, knows more about the mysterious creatures than she lets on. The battle between man and sea takes a dangerous route as these predators seek to claim their birthright.

Rest in Peace: Bill Gold, Iconic Movie Poster Designer, Passes Away at 97

Sad news as it’s been confirmed that iconic graphic designer Bill Gold, who was responsible for creating thousands of film posters, has passed away in his Old Greenwich, Connecticut home at 97 years old.

Gold’s career stretched back decades to the early 40’s, where he designed posters for films like Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Big Sleep, and the classic Bogart/Bergman film Casablanca. Over the next several decades, Gold would work with directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, Ridley Scott, Stanley Kubrick, Desmond Davis, Oliver Stone, and many, many more. Some of his most famous works were done for many of Clint Eastwood’s westerns, William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, John Boorman’s Deliverance, Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, and a multitude of posters for the James Bond franchise.

Per THR, Gold is survived by, “…his wife, Susan, son Bob, daughter in-law Joanne, daughter Marcy, grandson Spencer, granddaughter Dylann and her fiancé Justin, great nephew Jaaron and “man’s best friend” Willoughby.”

We send our deepest condolences to his family in this sad time. However, we also send our gratitude for a man whose work fascinated and intrigued countless audiences over more than 70 years. I remember walking through a movie theater’s halls and delighting in looking at movie posters, imagining what their stories could hold. I can only believe that other children over the years looked at Gold’s work and wondered the same thing about those films.
