You might have heard about the time Scooby-Doo ended up doing a full on tribute to The Blair Witch Project many years ago, but now this formerly lost to time tribute has ben officially released in full by Cartoon Network just in time for the spooky Halloween holiday season. Scooby-Doo once held a legendary marathon of Scooby Doo, Where Are You? on Halloween day back in 1999, but the surprising draw in between each of the episodes were a series of commercials that saw the Mystery Machine gang walked through the very same forest as seen in the then massively popular Horror movie, The Blair Witch Project.
These promotions ran through the course of the marathon, and while a few of them had been collected over the years by fans who were also surprised that such a Horror filled tribute experience, Cartoon Network has finally fully embraced this formerly lost media and released the complete Scooby-Doo: Blair Witch Project in full. The short sees the gang exploring a mysterious forest before things quickly go south much like they did in the original movie that helped usher in a huge wave of parodies like these back then.

How to Watch Scooby-Doo for Halloween
Thankfully, it’s not very tough to check out Scooby-Doo’s long running slate of TV series and movies as you can find many of them now streaming on HBO Max. These selections unfortunately don’t include every single bit of Scooby-Doo’s animated or live-action materials, but there is a healthy blend of classic offerings like Scooby Doo Where Are You? and more recent additions to the franchise like Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo. Which means there’s bound to be at least one you can jump into for the holiday!
Scooby-Doo’s Blair Witch Project tribute seemed like one of those fever dreams that surprisingly turned out to be real, so seeing it again in full like this really hammers home just how creative of a tribute it really was all those years ago. But how do you like it now that you have been able to check it out in full? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
