Two Made For Video features: Scooby-Doo Meets Batman: They move like shadows in the night. Protecting the innocent, thwarting injustice and stuffing themselves with Scooby snacks! That's right - the most legendary names in crime-fighting history join forces as Scooby-Doo and the Mystery, Inc. gang team up with Batman and Robin. The action begins as The Joker and The Penguin try to cash in on a crooked counterfeiting scheme only to be foiled by the Dynamic Trio of Batman, Robin and Scooby-Doo! But, The Joker and The Penguin return to try and steal a flying suit until Scooby-Doo and the gang prove that with a little Bat-help, they have what it takes to bring the sky-high scoundrels back to earth! Scooby-Doo Meets the Harlem Globetrotters: Scooby-Doo and the Mystery, Inc. gang score big thrills when they team up with the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in two hilarious action-packed mystery adventures. On a visit to a quaint New England town, the gang is spooked by close encounters with the ghost of Paul Revere and a fire-spouting sea serpent. But it's a whole new ballgame when the kids get a mystery-solving assist from their new pals: The Fabulous Harlem Globetrotters. Then, the Globetrotters and the Mystery, Inc. crew are ship-napped to a creepy island full of ghostly frights - where Scooby-Doo and the gang again join forces with the wisecracking hoopsters for some slam-dunk crook-busting fun.]]>

As for the content - the Batman episodes have only English and Spanish spoken languages (packaging states French, but that is not the case), with English, Spanish and French subtitles. The Globetrotters episodes have spoken languages and subtitles in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
The description provided by Amazon is also misleading. These are from the 1972-1973 series (The New Scooby Doo Movies) and NOT newly made. A caveat for the purists - the Batman episodes do not have any musical opening sequence, only the title where Shaggy announces the guest star. The Globetrotters episodes have the musical opening sequence, but the visuals have been altered to cut out the numerous other guests that were in this season of Scooby-Doo such as The Addams Family, Batman, and yes, even the Harlem Globetrotters. These have also been released on The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies, so if you have that set you really don't need this one, unless you want the extra features, which aren't much.
On its own, the episodes look and sound great and it isn't a bad value at $5.
Sadly, we received a defective disc as the side B would not play in anything I tried it in. According to my computer blu-ray drive, there are files on the side B, but nothing playable.
My two star rating is like this; 5 stars for Side A that plays great and 0 stars for Side B that doesn't - average and round down.
So, roll the dice and take your chances with this one. You may get lucky and receive a fully playable combi-disc. I've returned this and ordered two separate discs of each feature to be (hopefully) certain the two features play. I don't want to roll the dice and come up snake-eyes a second time, when this was a Christmas for our visiting grandson.
