During the coronavirus pandemic, probably close to every living room in the country has become a home theater for families.

Warner Bros. released “SCOOB!,” the newest adventure starring the meddling kids from Mystery Inc. The movie was originally intended to be released in theaters but was pushed to a home video premiere due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“SCOOB!,” which features a voice cast including Will Forte, Gina Rodriguez, Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried, follows Scooby and the gang as they face their biggest mystery yet -- a plot to unleash spirits of the underworld.

As they battle their new foe, the gang realizes that Scooby has a secret legacy and an epic destiny. The movie also reveals how lifelong friends Scooby and Shaggy first met, and how the duo formed Mystery Inc. with Fred, Velma and Daphne.

Frank Welker, who is best known for voicing Fred Jones in the Scooby-Doo franchise since its inception in 1969, as well as the voice of Scooby-Doo since 2002, reprises his role as the lovable Great Dane.

From sound effects to character cameos, the film is chock full of Hanna-Barbera references, Easter eggs and nods to past cartoons that any fan of early animation will appreciate.

While it’s impossible for us to name them all, here are our favorite Easter eggs from Warner Bros. Animation’s “SCOOB!”
