Elvira joins Scooby Doo for Halloween Fun

Long time readers know that my wife and I love Elvira and her two films, "Mistress of the Dark" and "Haunted Hills."  Forgetting about her silly recent political commentary, I patiently await her very-long-awaited 3rd film... if it ever gets made.

For fans of Cassandra Peterson and her Elvira persona, however, you can find her in an all-new digital release (and on DVD) cartoon titled "Happy Halloween, Scooby Doo!"  The team of detective teens meet up with none other than Elvira herself (and Bill Nye the Science Guy) as they battle the famous Batman villain The Scarecrow.

The official statement reads: “With fake monsters and candy galore, Halloween is heaven for these hungry foodies going door-to-door. But this year, their sweet holiday turns sour when the neighborhood pumpkin patch is infected by toxic ooze, creating high-flying jack-o-lanterns, and a king-sized pumpkin leader squashing everything in its path. It’s up to Scooby-Doo and the gang as they team up with their pals, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, to solve this mystery of gigantic proportions and save Crystal Cove!”

Written, directed, and produced by Maxwell Atom, who is best known for creating The Cartoon Network's Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and executive producer of Disney Channel's "Fish Hooks," this project features popular voice casting for the series that includes Frank Welker as Scooby and Fred, Grey Griffin as Daphne, Kate Micucci as Velma, and Matthew Lillard as Shaggy.  Cassandra Peterson does her own voice work as Elvira.
