Product Description

Pup Named Scooby-Doo, A: Volume 1 (DVD)

Amazon.com

Puppy Scooby-Do and his four young friends have a knack for getting involved in mysteries ranging from bicycle theft to bank robbery in the A Pup Named Scooby-Do series for television--never mind that Scooby-Doo's gang is barely old enough to enroll in elementary school! As in the Scooby-Doo series, Fred takes an enthusiastic lead with his often far-fetched theories, while Daphne is most concerned about getting messy. Shaggy is laid-back and easily spooked and Velma, though a tyke of few words, exhibits a very busy intellect. Scooby-Do, who bears almost no resemblance to the often-annoying Scrappy-Doo some viewers may be familiar with, performs for Scooby Snacks. These mysteries share a marked similarity with the regular Scooby-Do series, complete with extended chase scenes with slimy ghosts, hidden rooms, and an abundance of creepy monsters. What's unique to the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo series is that the ghosts and monsters are slightly less scary, the clues are more obvious, and Velma walks young viewers through the process of figuring out the identities of the thieves just prior to their revealing. This compilation includes "A Bicycle Built for Boo," "The Sludge Monster from the Earth's Core," "Wanted Cheddar Alive," and "The Schnook Who Took My Comic Book" and features both spoken language and subtitle options in English, French, and Spanish. (Ages 3 to 7) --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my fave Scooby incarnations October 4, 2005
The 80s were a goldmine decade of great animated shows. Stuff we got in those ten years we just don't see any more. Quite literally. I don't think we'll ever see Denver the Last Dinosaur or Centurions on DVD. One of the forgotten shows among dozens of others was A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. The Scooby-Doo franchise suffered a heavy blow in the 80s when some silly man wearing a suit thought it would be a good idea to introduce Scrappy-Doo, a highly irritating doggy who never kept his mouth shut for more than two seconds. Freddy and Velma also disappeared for a while and Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy would go off solving mysteries with just Daphne.

Desperate for a new way to re-invent the franchise, Warner gave us A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, an interesting, if failed attempt.

The show features the Mystery Inc. gang as kids and Scoob as a little puppy. The humor and animation is more offbeat and Looney-Tunes orientated but the mysteries are still substantial and the locations still occasionally Gothic and atmospheric.

Shaggy and Scooby are still voiced by Casey Kasem and Don Messick. Since they are the backbone of the show it's good to have this consistency. The childhood angle also gives us new insight into their background.

Many have criticised this show, claiming it to be aimed at under-tens and that it an embarrassment to the Scooby-Doo franchise. Well, I never found it to be that way. As a Scooby-Doo fan I thought this show was very amusing and I loved the score and songs by John Debney. There should be a soundtrack CD released. It really is a shame it never lasted for longer.

Since there were only 26 episodes made I can't help but be angry at Warner's awful DVD presentation of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Vol. 1 June 3, 2005
Verified Purchase
FINALLY! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this show finally being released onto DVD! "A Pup Named Scooby Doo" was one of the best (not to mention funniest) Scooby Doo spin-offs. It ran from 1988-1991 and has had a home on Cartoon Network for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately Cartoon Network has butchered up the show with their non-sense 3 commercial breaks every show, so I am just relieved that this show will finally be releeased commercial-free. If you are a true Scooby Doo fanatic, this DVD is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! April 22, 2005
Although I was hoping for this series to come out in the boxset format, it's great that WB is finally releasing "A Pup Named Scooby Doo" on DVD.

A Pup Named Scooby-Doo was one of the better Scooby Doo spinoffs, and ran from 1988 to 1991. It revolves around the Mystery Inc gang when they were kids, and when Scooby-Doo was still a puppy. This DVD contains the first 4 episodes to be aired. in the first episode "A Bicycle Built for Boo" scooby and the gang try to solve the mystery of the green glob that stole Shaggy's bike. In "Wanted Cheddar Alive", a cheese monster wreaks havoc in the Scooby Snack factory and threatens to close it down. "The Shnook Who Took My Comic Book" finds Shaggy and Scooby coming face to face with a monster from their favorite comic book Commander Cool. Finally in "The Sludge Monster from the Earth's core", a sluge monster that just robbed a bank is using scooby's kennel to hide from the cops.

Keep up the good work WB and please release more Scooby-Doo series on DVD. personally I'd love to see the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give this 'Pup' a Couple of Scooby Snacks July 21, 2005
In 1988, after a semi-disastrous attempt by Hanna-Barbera to "babify" the Flintsones, the studio made an attemt to try again with one of their most famous shows. This time, however, it worked.

The basic premise of the original Scooby sereis remains intact (minor criminal commits cvrime while dressed in a Halloween costume) but the gang themselves--Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby--appear as children, about 10 years yuonger than they were in the original series. The artwork style itself was a drastic departure from the realism present in the orignal "Scooby-Doo" series of 1969; instead, this series draws its influence from the old sight-gag cartoons of the 1940s. The kids themselves, with the exception of Shaggy and SCooby, have had complete personality and appearance makeovers. They look nothing like their teenage selves.

The series was very successful, running from 1988-1991 on ABC and earning an Emmy nomination for Best Animated SEries in 1989. It also marked the return to television of Fred, Velma and Daphne. I give this series f out 5 stars. I withheld the last star due to this show not being released in full box set or full season format. Even if you have never seen the original Scooby show, you can understand this series, as it is a omplete stand-alone show.

5.0 out of 5 stars The WB does it right for A Pup Named Scooby Doo July 24, 2005
Even though there are no extras on the DVD, the episodes look great on the DVD format. We have the Pilot episode along with Wanted Chedder Alive and even the Comic Book one. One thing that is great about the DVD is that the show is not edited for release. Check out the scene with the Shirly McCloone Character in the pilot. on the DVD she comes out of the bushes and it types her name with "wierdo" underneeth her name. I guess CN edited that out as not to offend.
The cartoons look great in terms of color, but the menu Puppy could have been drawn better as it looked not up to par as he should have been drawn. It was cute to see him wink and his ears wiggle and so forth...
the WB has done this show right... It really doen't need extras for some groovy fun and the DVD keeps them the way they were aired originally... I hope that other DVDs will take a cue from the WB and leave the shows intact... So Grab a bowl of popcorn and get ready to have fun with a Pup Named Scooby Doo.
