Product Description

Scoobys All Star Laff-A-Lympics: Volume One

After Olympic fever swept the nations, especially the United States in 1976 (the nation's bicentennial), the worldwide sporting competitions would be sorely missed until 1980, as well as 1984, when the U.S. would be the host nation for the Summer Games. Fortunately Hanna-Barbera provided a worthy substitute in animated form as up to 45 of their cartoon characters (classic and otherwise) were featured on this show competing for the gold medal. While some events were similar to real-life Olympic events, most were pretty offbeat and quite unusual, and could only be done on cartoons like this. Among these weird events were racing on ostriches, camels, kangaroos, rickshaws and unicycles, as well as scavenging for creatures like the Abominable Snowman, vampires, and the Loch Ness Monster. With events like these, each Laff-A-Lympics was bound to be a major adventure!

Every four years, the Olympic Games captivate America with sporting events featuring athletes from around the world. In 1977, Hanna-Barbera capitalized on the huge popularity of the 1976 Olympics and the TV series Battle of the Network Stars by creating a cartoon version of the Olympics. It featured Snagglepuss and Mildew Wolf as announcers and pitted cartoon teams called the Scooby Doobies, Yogi Yahooeys, and Really Rottens against one another in unconventional sporting events that took place around the globe. The Scooby Doobies team was composed mainly of 1970s cartoon characters like Scooby-Doo, the Blue Falcon, Dynomutt, and Captain Caveman; the Yogi Yahooeys was made up of 1950s and 1960s characters such as Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and Boo-Boo Bear; the Really Rottens included villains like Mumbly, the Dalton Brothers, and the Creepleys. In all, 45 cartoon characters faced off in events as varied as downhill skiing, swamp-buggy racing, cliff diving, fox hunting, three-legged kilt racing, photographing the Loch Ness Monster, and rickshaw racing. The Really Rottens could always be counted on to cheat by employing every imaginable dirty trick, but their team always got what they deserved thanks to the use of replays and hidden "cheater cameras." As for the Scooby Doobies and the Yogi Yahooeys, the team members consistently tried their quirky best to secure a victory for their team. Scooby's All Star Laff-A-Lympics is silly cartoon fun that evokes plenty of childhood memories and is ripe for sharing with a whole new generation of kids. (Ages 6 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Format: DVD
Laff-a-Lympics focuses on three sets of teams: The Yogi Yahooies, The Scooby-Doobies, and The Really Rottens. Throughout each episode one or two characters from each team would compete in sporting events. The goal was to receive the most points by the end of the episode...and the winner would receive the Laff-a-Lympics gold medal. The hosts of the show were Snagglepuss and Mildew Wolf...each character wore yellow sports jackets to mirror the style of jackets in use by real life ABC-TV sportscasters of that time period. The play-by-play broadcaster heard on every program making commentary on the sporting events was Don Messick.

The Yogi team was comprised mostly of Hanna-Barbera characters that originated in the late '50s and early '60s: Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo, Cindy Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quickdraw McGraw, Snooper and Blabber, Pixie Mouse, Dixie Mouse, Mr. Jinx, Wally Gator, Augie Doggy and Doggy Daddy, Yakky Doodle, Hokey Wolf...the lone exception was Grape Ape, a character that originated in the mid '70s.

Scooby's team consisted of a collection of what would be considered Hanna-Barbera's more contemporary characters: Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Scooby-Dum, Babu, Captain Caveman, Brenda, Dee Dee, Taffy, Hong Kong Phooey, Speed Buggy, Tinker, Blue Falcon and Dynomutt.

The Rottens consisted of brand new characters, except the team captain, Mumbly. This team was basically used for comical antagonism and conflict...playing tricks and cheating their way to hopeful victory. Mumbly was switched from a good detective to a cheating scoundrel in this series. Originally Mumbly appeared in a series of shorts which later appeared as part of the short-lived Mumbly Cartoon Show. The shorts originally aired on a series known as The Tom and Jerry/Grape Ape/Mumbly Show.

Great cartoon, poor release. It is crazy only releasing 4 episodes. The complete series would fit on a two disc set. I love this show but I don't think I can bring myself to buy it a disc at a time.

I have such fond memories of this from my childhood. I remember rooting for the Scooby Doobies every week (like they were a real team or something.) I just love having these old Saturday morning cartoons on DVD. It just makes me sad they don't still have shows like this.

I enjoy classic cartoons without the computer generated nonsense. Back when characters were drawn, not just generally suggested as shapes, and there are good guys and bad guys. No toilet humor. Scooby Doo does not play any bigger a role in this series than any of the other good guys and bad guys. Why call it Scooby Doo's Laff-A-Lympics? Maybe because the way it rolls off the tongue.

Watched this as a kid and loved it; all my favorite HB characters together in one show. Don't understand why they are releasing only 4 episodes (and for $11-$15? For only four shows?) and not a whole season. Based on that, "this specific product" only gets a two. Let me know when a whole season is released (and at a more reasonable cost); then maybe i'll spend my money on it...
