Scooby-Doo joins forces with WWE in animated film

Some cartoon crossovers make perfect sense. Think: "The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones." Others, though, are a lot less obvious. Take, for example, the Scooby-Doo gang teaming up with the stars of the WWE. Nobody would ever think of doing that one, right? Riiight?

Wrong. The idea is strange, but it is happening. Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma, and Daphne are joining forces with the WWE's Triple H, John Cena, and other singlet-clad studs for an all-new animated adventure.

News of the project first appeared on Deadline. Details are scant, but Deadline is reporting that the plot will involve some sort of mystery at WrestleMania. Based on past Scooby-Doo adventures, expect fake ghosts, creepy sound effects, and a villain in a rubber mask (may we suggest Vince McMahon as the baddie?).

This won't be the first time professional wrestlers have been animated. In the glorious '80s, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Rowdy Roddy Piper, and company starred in their own Saturday morning cartoon.

Scooby-Doo is no stranger to guest stars. In past incarnations, the meddling kids and their Great Dane have been helped out by Batman and Robin, Mama Cass, Phyllis Diller, and "Weird Al" Yankovic. Maybe the idea of wrestlers solving a mystery isn't so strange after all.
