Fans of Scooby-Doo were a little shocked when Will Forte stepped up to voice Shaggy, replacing live-action Scooby-Doo movie star Matthew Lillard, who has been voicing the character in cartoons and animated movies since then.

When I was growing up in the ’90s, channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network were gaining popularity and figuring out exactly what they wanted to be in the rapidly expanding world of cable television.

But that’s about to change with the new Boomerang subscription service.
