“Juggling work schedules and errand running, families get so busy that they need a weekend getaway just to spend quality time winding down together or reconnecting with extended family or friends,” Lee added.
“As a top star on both Cartoon Network(R) and Boomerang(TM), Scooby-Doo also is enjoying an extremely busy year with the direct-to-video release of `Scooby-Doo and the Monster of Mexico` and the upcoming theatrical sequel, `Scooby-Doo II,`” says Phyllis Ehrlich, senior vice president of promotions marketing for Cartoon Network Sales & Marketing. “Through this exclusive promotion with Embassy Suites Hotels, an entirely new generation of kids can enjoy playing with this all-new plush version of the canine superstar.
