Children's TV favourite Scooby-Doo has beaten The Simpsons to a world record for the most episodes of a cartoon comedy series.

The show's 350th episode, SCOOBY-DOO HALLOWEEN, is being screened on cable TV channel BOOMERANG on Friday (29OCT04), beating The Simpsons' achievement of 335 programmes.

Scooby-Doo was created by US animation company HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTIONS in 1969, and follows the adventures of Scooby and his friends Shaggy, VELMA, FRED and DAPHNE.

It will now be listed in the 2006 Guinness World Record book published at the end of next year.
