Cartoon icon on coast
SCOOBY Doo and Shaggy were excited to hit the sands of Coolangatta Beach for a quick break in their gruelling schedule yesterday.
The pair were in town to present their new stage show, Scooby Doo Stagefright, on the Gold Coast.
Shaggy said the gang was here to solve the mystery on a monster movie set where Daphne’s uncle, a Hollywood director, was working.
"The whole thing is pretty spooky," said Shaggy.
"All the cast are convinced the film is cursed," he said.
Scooby and Shaggy were happy to pose for photos before they had to head back to the theatre.
Josh Futcher, from Mermaid Waters, and Ben Pfeiffer, of Melbourne, are two actors from the Scooby Doo Stagefright show.
"I have always had a close attachment to Scooby Doo and loved the old cartoons as a kid," Mr Futcher said.
"They’re such iconic characters that continue to transcend generations."
"The kids have an absolute ball at the show and especially love Shaggy and Scooby," Mr Pfeiffer, who plays Shaggy, said.
"It’s great to be part of such a wonderful show.
Scooby Doo in Stagefright was written and directed by award-winning director/writer Jim Millan and for the first time ever the world famous Great Dane Scooby Doo has landed on Australian shores, appearing in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast this month.
The family show stars the immortal Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters and has wowed four-and-a-half million people across the globe to date.
Scooby Doo in Stagefright was performed at the Gold Coast Arts Centre this afternoon.
