Video: Gene Stops by on FOX and Friends Morning Show

In 1978, the rock band KISS was animated for the first time in the episode "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park." But rumor has it the band was so unhappy with "KISS Meets The Phantom," no one was allowed to mention it in their presence after it aired.

In 2003, KISS tried cartoons again with a Halloween episode of "What’s New, Scooby-Doo?" Apparently that wasn't good enough, either, because KISS is back with Velma, Shaggy, and their groovy panel van once again in "Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery."

This time, Scooby got it right, because the metal legends take the lead, according to outspoken bass player/band leader Gene Simmons.

"This is the most expensive Scooby movie of them all, but it really could be a KISS movie with Scooby as a guest star," Simmons told FOX411. "There really is shared space."

In "Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery," Starchild (Paul Stanley), Demon (Gene Simmons), Catman (Eric Singer) and Spaceman (Tommy Thayer) join the Scooby-Doo gang on a magical, musical, mystery adventure at KISS World, an amusement park dedicated to the band, for a special Halloween concert. But they discover that the Crimson Witch has summoned The Destroyer from Kissteria, and the dastardly duo plan to destroy the earth -- which the Scooby gang and KISS team up to [SPOILER ALERT] save!

"The great thing about doing KISS meets Scooby Doo is because of the length of it," Stanley says. "As opposed to just a short, animated piece, we really got a chance to flesh it out, and we had people working who wanted a cohesive script. Whereas, I have to say with 'KISS Meets the Phantom,' to this day, I am not sure what that's about. But this holds together really well, and it is very true to Scooby-Doo and very true to us."

Six classic KISS songs are featured in "Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery," alongside a humorous, original new song, "Don't Touch My Ascot," performed by the band and written just for the film.
