Cardellini keen for Scooby Doo 3
Though the Prinze-Gellarrs aren't answering calls, Scooby Doo star Linda Cardellini says sheell gladly plonk Velmaas wig back on for a third outing.

The Brokeback Mountainn star tells MTV that she "had the time of my life making those movies," she grinned. "Every six months or so, I hear a whisper or a murmur that there will be another [sequel]."

The latest is that most of the folks involved in the first two Scoobyy movies - including Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr, Matthew Lillard and writer James Gunn - arennt coming back for another, so the whispers in the corridors of Warner have it that they might be continuing the series as a direct-to-video franchise. Does Cardellini still want in?

Scooby-Doo breaks cartoon record
Children's TV favourite Scooby-Doo has been awarded a Guinness World Record for notching up the most episodes of a cartoon comedy series.

The show's 350th episode, Scooby-Doo Halloween, is being screened on the Boomerang channel on Friday, beating a previous record held by The Simpsons.

The adventures of Scooby and his friends Shaggy, Velma, Fred and Daphne first aired in 1969.

The show was created by US animation company Hanna-Barbera Productions.

Seen in more than 160 countries, it was recently voted second in a list of cartoons that today's adults enjoyed as children.

The lovable Great Dane, whose real name is Scoobert, has incredibly remained seven years old over the 35 years of the show.

The Simpsons previously held the cartoon record with 335 episodes, followed by Tom and Jerry with 209, The Flintstones (166) and Disney's Mickey Mouse (120).

"It's a great honour to have taken Homer's crown," said Richard Kilgarriff of Boomerang TV.

Scooby-Doo will now be listed in the 2006 Guinness World Record book published at the end of next year.

A live-action remake of the classic Hanna Barbera cartoon featuring a computer generated version of the crime-fighting canine made $268m ((145m) at global box offices in 2002, despite poor reviews.

A sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, was released earlier this year.

Matthew Lillard Says No 'Scooby-Doo 3'
Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) told SCI FI Wire that there is no hope for a third installment. "There will be no Scooby 3," Lillard said in an interview. Lillard blamed the film's disappointing box-office performance.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed made more than $80 million at the U.S. box office, but that fell far short of the original Scooby-Doo's $154 million haul.

"The second one didn't do as well as it was expected to do, and I completely hold that to Warner Brothers' fault," Lillard said. "I think Warner Brothers made a mistake releasing it at the time they did [March 2004]. I think the movie's much better than the first movie, and I honestly thought it was going to do ridiculously good box office. But we had a bad timeslot. We had 13 movies open up in two weeks after we opened up. I mean, it did well, but it didn't do great, and it needed to do great."

'Scooby-Doo 3' Gets Jetsons Scribes
Warner Bros. Pictures "Scooby-Doo" sequel is already on the fast track, and the studio is already moving forward on a third installment, hiring scribes Dan Forman and Paul Foley to write a script, tentatively titled "Scooby-Doo 3," reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The duo recently turned in a rewrite on Warners' "The Jetsons," another animated television property being conceived for the big screen. Sources say the studio was happy with the "Jetsons" draft and was therefore prompted to hire Forman and Foley to pen "Scooby 3."

The first "Scooby-Doo" film, directed by Raja Gosnell and released June 16 in the United States, was expected to launch a franchise if it performed at the boxoffice, which it did, opening at $54.1 million and going on to gross more than $153 million domestically.
