Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.


Release Date: September 9, 1972 – October 27, 1973 (Contemporary Setting — See Notes for Scooby-Doo, Where are You?)

Series: The New Scooby-Doo Movies

The Story: Mystery, Inc. continues to solve mysteries, but now they meet a lot of interesting people.

Notes: See my Notes for Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? for how I feel about talking dogs in the Horror Universe. There are many Scooby-Doo series, and some have contrary canon. For that reason, each one is considered separately for crossover inclusion. Where Are You? was brought in via a cross with Jekyll and Hyde. This series is brought in via a cross with the Addams Family below. This series is a continuation of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! It continues in 1976 as The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour. It was remade in 2002 as a live-action film. This series also spun off the animated Harlem Globetrotters series. The series has been referenced several times in other series and films. It has also been spoofed in Gremlins 2, NIght of the Living Doo, and Family Guy.



Release Date: September 22, 1973 (Contemporary Setting)

Non-Horror Crosses: Jeanie (animated)

The Story: Jeanie transports Mystery, Inc. back to ancient Egypt to solve a mystery.

Notes: This crossover brings the animated Jeanie into the Horror Universe. This Jeanie was not the same from I Dream of Jeannie but was meant to be part of the same reality. All of Jeannie’s genie relatives were also named Jeanie. The animated Jeanie also used her magic exactly like the live action version.
