The whodunit format was a daring new frontier for an animated series, but the members of the Mystery Inc. team have grown to become authentic popular-culture icons. To solve their newest mystery - finding the most awesome Scooby-Doo DVD ever, with 25 vintage episodes and snackin' good extras on 4 discs - you need only follow this simple clue: you're holding it!]]>
Watching all the shows back-to-back reveals evolving complexity in the scripts. Over time, Scooby-Doo's creators added multiple bad guys in cahoots with major villains, and developed sub-plots, backstories, and even appealing allies and friends of Mystery, Inc., a traveling band of young debunkers of supernatural phenomena. Riding around in their psychedelic Mystery Van, preppie leader Fred and his friends--haughty Daphne, brainy Velma, quasi-hippie Shaggy, and Shaggy's best pal, Scooby, an excitable Great Dane--chase down and are chased by alleged ghouls who generally turn out to be venal humans running various scams.
Included here is Scooby-Doo's premiere, "What a Night for a Knight," in which the gang looks into the disappearance of a noted archaeologist and end up in a "haunted" museum. The fun "Go Away Ghost Ship" finds our heroes helping a shipping company daunted by the apparent ghost of pirate Red Beard, while the silly classic "A Tiki Scare Is No Fair" concerns a Hawaiian vacation for Mystery, Inc. disrupted by a witch doctor. --Tom Keogh

What you WON'T find in this collection (thankfully) are the miriad of spin-offs and bad idea cartoons that were spawned by the original series - such as Scrappy-Doo, Scooby-Dumb, celebrity guest-appearances by Don Knotts, the Harlam Globetrotters and Sonny & Cher.
No, this collection is just all the original, pure, superb "Scooby-Doo Where Are You?" cartoons that ran from 1969-70. There are a total of 25 episodes spanning four DVDs, with the occasional extra thrown-in. The extras are fluff and as such uneccesary, but there aren't many and they don't detract from the DVDs much.
The mastering is done well, and the picture looks crisp, sharp, clean, and bright. The colors are vibrant and true. The sound is also very clean and well done. While they could have probably fit all 25 episodes on fewer disks, I'm glad they chose not to as to keep the compression to a minimum, which they've done.
The original "Scooby-Doo Where Are You?" series isn't just a silly little cartoon that can be easily modified in any number of ways for marketability [as was obviously thought throughout the 1970s when cartoons went overboard with ridiculous concepts but scaled-back the quality and craftsmanship of great animation].
The original Scooby-Doo is nothing short of art. It is highly-realized quality animation that deserves to be preserved in a respectful manner and appreciated by fans everywhere. I'm glad this level of quality has been finally put into a DVD presentation of the cartoon series that was put into the original.
Here are what all of the episodes are:
1. What A Night For A Knight
2. Hassle In The Castle
3. A Clue For Scooby Doo
4. Mine Your Own Business
5. Decoy For A Dognapper
6. What The Hex Going On
7. Never Ape An Ape Man
8. Foul Play In Funland
9. Backstage Rage
10. Bedlam In The Bigtop
11. A Gaggle Of Galloping Ghosts
12. Scooby Doo And A Mummy Too
13. Which Witch Is Which
14. Spooky Space Kook
15. Go Away Ghost Ship
16. A Night Of Fright Is No Delight
17. That's Snow Ghost
18. No Where To Hide
19. Mystery Mask Mix up
20. Jeepers It's The Creeper
21. Scooby's Night With A Frozen Fright
22. The Haunted House Hang Up
23. A Tiki Scare Is No Fair
24. Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Werewolf
25. Don't Fool With A Phantom

Season 2 is slightly better thanks to the inclusion of one really 70's Danny Janssen song per episode. They are actually quite pleasant, easy-listening songs and it gives the Season 2 episodes a higher nostalgic feel.
Of course all 25 episodes adhere to the strict formula the franchise would soon find it increasingly hard to break away from (and end-up resorting to self-parody instead).Read more ›
