Today, a new Scooby-Doo animated series featuring celebrity guests, much like the original New Scooby-Doo Movies, was announced for Boomerang streaming service.

The title of the series is Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? and the big story seems buried in the official press release: Jaleel White is reprising his role as Steve Urkel!

In a world where other TGIF hits as Full House and Boy Meets World have had second life, it was only a matter of time before Family Matters was revived, right? Well, here’s something close to it!

Jaleel White is no stranger to animation as he famously voiced Sonic the Hedgehog for many years.

White isn’t the only big icon in the initial announcement — Mark Hamill of Star Wars and “best voice of Joker ever” fame is also on the roster, as are a number of DC Comics super heroes… this time a list that includes more than just Batman and Robin!

Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? premieres in 2019. Here’s the press release with more details:

The Mystery Inc. gang welcomes new members in the all-new series, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?. From Warner Bros. Animation, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? follows the grand tradition of Scooby-Doo team-ups and takes the idea to hilarious new heights.
