Warner Bros. made a big announcement during CinemaCon on Tuesday, where they revealed the title of the upcoming Scooby-Doo reboot: S.C.O.O.B. But that's not all! A rep for the company announced the film would be “our first shot at unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera Universe.”

So what does this mean for casual cartoon fans who may not understand the hype? The upcoming reboot now has the possibility of fusing the worlds of Hanna-Barbera classics like The FlintstonesYogi Bear, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, Top Cat and Jonny Quest on the silver screen. It's a pretty big deal.

No other details have surfaced of how Warner Bros. will plan this crossover, but it follows the trend of the connections Marvel and DC are making between their movies. S.C.O.O.B. will hit theaters on Sept. 18, 2018.
