Warner Bros just announced a trio of panels for New York Comic Con. Batman: Death in the Family, The Flinstones: The Complete Series, and Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo! will have panels during the virtual event.

The panels for the WB animations will feature never-before-seen footage and discussions with the show’s cast and creators. For Scooby-Doo fans, it’s worth noting that NYCC will feature the four core voices of Mystery Inc. together for the first time.

As the anchor of an anthology of 2019-2020 animated shorts, Batman: Death in the Family is based on the 1988 landmark DC event where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending, and is organically grown out of the 2010 DC Universe Movie, Batman: Under the Red Hood. In this new version, the animated short is an interactive storytelling presentation with numerous “branches,” allowing the viewer multiple options from which to choose and alter the path of the core characters (Batman, Robin, Joker, Red Hood and more).

Details: Scooby-Doo and Shaggy’s favorite holiday is upon us! With fake monsters and candy galore, Halloween is heaven for these hungry foodies going door-to-door. But this year, their sweet holiday turns sour when the neighborhood pumpkin patch is infected by toxic ooze, creating high-flying jack-o-lanterns, and a king-sized pumpkin leader squashing everything in its path. It’s up to Scooby-Doo and the gang as they team up with their pals, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Bill Nye the Science Guy, to solve this mystery of gigantic proportions and save Crystal Cove! Enjoy a fun panel discussion, then stay for a special sneak peek at the first eight minutes of the film.
