"The Nutcracker Scoob" (billed as "Nutcracker Scooby" when shown in Cartoon Network's Christmas marathons) is a half-hour Christmas-themed episode of the Hanna-Barbera animated television series The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, and the first Christmas special starring the Scooby-Doo characters. Originally broadcast on ABC, it has since aired as part of annual Christmas programming on the USA Network, Cartoon Network, and most recently, Boomerang.


Scooby and Shaggy with the Ghost of Christmas Never

Scooby, Scrappy, and the gang are helping Tiny Tina and the other young residents of a children's home put on a Christmas pageant when they are interrupted by a spooky apparition. Is it the work of the dastardly businessman Winslow Nickleby, who would do anything to buy the home? Or is someone else after the emerald hidden on the premises?


"The Nutcracker Scoob" made its home video debut on VHS in 1996, when it was released as part of the Cartoon Network Christmas video series. The episode was later featured, along with three other winter-themed Scooby-Doo episodes, on the Scooby-Doo! Winter Wonderdog VHS and DVD, released by Warner Home Video in 2002. It, along with the later Christmas specials A Scooby-Doo! Christmas and Scooby-Doo! Haunted Holidays, was also included included on the Scooby-Doo - 13 Spooky Tales: Holiday Chills and Thrills 2-disc DVD set, released on October 16, 2012.
