At least give us volume's that have more than 4 episodes. The other downside to these releases and why WB is quickly falling behind in television releases, is that they don't include any worthwhile extras and don't release the show in HD. The recent Scooby movies haven't had extras either, disappointing for such a long running character, but I can justify buying them to see them in crystal clear high definition. This series deserves the same treatment. As is, with only four episodes a release and in standard definition, I'm better watching these episodes online at my leisure and these releases seem to only be aimed at parents, or perhaps complete purists who don't mind being ripped off.
At any rate for anyone who wants to purchase this ridiculous release, not even a behind the scenes feature yet about how they designed or came to creating the new series, the four episodes included are:
Battle of the Humungonauts
When two giant monsters start to attack Crystal Cove, Mayor Jones asks Fred and the gang to help him and the sheriff capture them. Meanwhile, Shaggy has to choose between his relationship with Velma and his friendship with Scooby.
Howl of the Fright Hound
A monster called the Fright Hound starts attacking Crystal Cove and people believe Scooby-Doo is behind it. Could be Scooby the one attacking the city or is someone setting him up?
The Secret Serum
There's a vampire loose in Crystal Cove, terrorizing the residents and stealing an odd assortment of loot. When the gang does some sniffing around, they discover an unlikely suspect... Daphne's MOTHER. Things are already strained within Mystery Inc., and with this latest blow, the gang is truly torn in half.Read more ›
However, three discs, packaged and sold individually at an average of $10, brings me to a total of about $30 for a SHORT (12-episode) season.
Add to that the fact that the plastic cases are beyond flimsy, and I'm not feeling like this was my best-value Amazon purchase.
The compression quality is not exactly stellar either, which is inexcusable given how little material is on each disc.
This series is actually quite entertaining and sticks to a lot of the classic ideas of Scooby and the gang, but does so with a much darker twist. It is still somewhat suitable for smaller children, but isn't as much slap-stick humor as the previous versions.
However, these "Volumes" only contain 4 episodes. I really wish they had broken it down into Part 1 with 12 episodes, much like they did Season 1 Part 2 with 14 episodes.
"Battle of the Humungonauts" - A pair of hulking creatures start wrecking places in Crystal Cove. Mayor Jones asks Fred and the gang to find out what's what. So they do and with a new look to boot - Fred's idea; no surprise.
"Howl of the Fright Hound" - Scooby is accused of attacking innocent people throughout the town. Either he's to blame or else Scooby must find the real culprit.
"The Secret Serum" - A vampire runs rampant and starts stealing some unusual items. The prime suspect for this case, however, is Daphne's mom.
"The Shrieking Madness" - The kids spend the weekend at a campus called Darrow College. All of a sudden, a monster known as Char Gar Gothakon is terrorizing everyone.
Not to be a spoiler or anything, but I think I heard that the rest of the first season will be coming to a special 2-disc set in the near future with the last 14 episodes on there. I'm sure it'll be worth waiting for even if the season ended on a sad note. Perhaps I've said too much....
I enjoyed the series on the Cartoon Network but I have, with great reluctance, put off purchasing the DVDs. After seeing the amazing HD quality on TV, I could not be satisfied with anything less in my collection. Please! Issue a complete season collection on Blu-Ray! Now!
