Scooby scores

Scooby-Doo gets into the record books.

Scooby-Doo has been awarded a Guinness World Record for the most number of episodes for a cartoon comedy series.

Thanks to a new batch of episodes, the series has now claimed the title from previous holder The Simpsons.

Scooby-Doo, created by Hanna-Barbera in 1969, will notch up its 350th episode on Friday, when Boomerang airs Scooby-Doo Halloween.

The Simpsons came second with 335 episodes, followed by Tom and Jerry (209), The Flintstones (166) and Disney's Mickey Mouse (120).

"It's a great honour to have taken Homer's crown," said Richard Kilgarriff of Boomerang TV.
