The Postal Service’s Scooby-Doo! stamp will help set an example for children and families to do good in their communities, USPS leaders and others told attendees at the July 14 dedication ceremony.
The stamp shows Scooby-Doo watering a blossoming plant in a flowerpot — a simple act that represents doing good in our everyday lives.
“The stamp symbolizes for kids that when we work together — like Scooby-Doo and his friends — there is no issue they can’t solve, no task too daunting,” said USPS Product Innovation Vice President Gary Reblin, who led the ceremony at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN.
Other participants included Josh Hackbarth, franchise management and marketing vice president for Warner Bros. Consumer Products; Kiya Edwards, a local TV news reporter who served as emcee; and the guest of honor, Scooby-Doo.
USPS is releasing the stamp ahead of Scooby-Doo’s 50th anniversary next year.
Since the character’s 1969 debut, he has starred in more than a dozen TV series, along with direct-to-video animated films, live-action movies and comic books. His latest series, “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”, will debut next year.
The stamp is available in panes of 12 at Post Offices and usps.com.
