The idea of a crossover between Scooby-Doo and Courage the Cowardly Dog expanded from being a potential episode for Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? In late 2019, TCM briefly had the film listed as Scooby-Doo and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Between then and June 22, 2021 when it was officially announced via Syfy Wire,[1] miscellaneous crew people had added the film to their résumé.


It was copyrighted in 2021.


The music was composed by Jody Gray and Andy Ezrin.
