CW Plans Beebo, Scooby, Flash Specials

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

As part of announcing their Fall series line-up, The CW has announced several specials are in the works for the network.

The most notable is “Beebo Saves Christmas,” an animated Christmas special based on the recurring fuzzy blue toy (turned furry blue God) from “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”.

Warner Bros. Animation is behind the special which arrives later this year and features the return of Ben Diskin as the voice of Beebo and Professor Stein himself Victor Garber returning to the series as the special’s narrator.

The special also stars Chris Kattan as the voice of efficiency-obsessed elf Sprinkles, “Community” alum Yvette Nicole Brown as the voice of Turbo, and Ernie Hudson as the voice of Santa Claus.

The network has also ordered the telemovie “The Waltons’ Homecoming” to celebrate that iconic show’s 50th anniversary, and an animated spoof of TV cast reunions with “The Scooby-Doo Reunion Special” in which the Mystery Inc. gang reminisce about their favorite cases.

The network has also revealed that the eighth season of “The Flash” and sixth season of “Riverdale” will premiere this Fall with five-episode events kicking off in November. Details of what “Riverdale” is up to are under wraps.

The first five episodes of “The Flash” next season will feature different heroes from the CW-verse coming together in each individual episode. The CW’s CEO Mark Pedowitz says “it will not be quite be a crossover but will have a crossover-type feel and the introduction of all these characters.”

Pedowitz also discussed the decision to rework their pilot for the live-action sequel series to the classic animated series “The Powerpuff Girls”. He says the already shot pilot “may have felt a little too campy and not rooted in reality” and so they’re going to try again – with the same team intact.
