Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies, The

Kids who fell in love with the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? TV series were growing up and could now enjoy more sophisticated plots and characters. So along came the hour-long The New Scooby-Doo Movies, and what sets them delightfully and hilariously apart is the marvelous lineup of celebrity guest stars - The Harlem Globetrotters, Dick Van Dyke, The Three Stooges, Jonathan Winters, Don Knotts, "Mama" Cass Elliot, and Laurel and Hardy, plus the participation of other animated action heroes like Batman and Robin and Speed Buggy. This 4-Disc Deluxe Set with Stardusted Special Features presents 15 of the best and spookiest capers. It's no mystery that you're in for a classic good time!

Format: DVD
I gave this 3 stars because I am a huge Scooby fan and was a really disappointed to see the episodes that make up this DVD set. Heres the break down:

Disc 1

The Ghastly Ghost Town (with The Three Stooges)

The Dynamic Scooby Doo Affair (with Batman & Robin)

The Frickert Fracas (with Jonathan Winters)

Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner (with Don Knotts)

Disc 2

The Spooky Fog (with Don Knotts)

The Ghost of Bigfoot (a.k.a. "Scooby-Doo Meets Laurel & Hardy")

The Ghost of The Red Baron (with The Three Stooges)

The Ghostly Creeps from the Deep (with The Harlem Globetrotters)

Disc 3

The Caped Crusader Caper (with Batman & Robin)

The Lochness Mess (with The Harlem Globetrotters)

The Mystery of Haunted Island (with The Harlem Globetrotters)

The Exterminator (with Don Adams)

Disc 4

The Weird Winds of Winona (with Speed Buggy)

The Haunted Candy Factory (with "Mama" Cass Elliot)

The Haunted Carnival (a.k.a. "Scooby-Doo Meets Dick Van Dyke")

Don't forget that this has some "Stardusted" special features, probably found on the fourth disc:

Featurette: The Hanna-Barbera Kennel Club Roasts Scooby-Doo

Featurette: Uptown With Scooby-Doo and The Harlem Globetrotters

Featurette: The Girls Rock!

I am just glad they are releasing this series but if I made a best of compilation, I would have picked one episode of the returning guests (i.e. one harlem globetrotter rather than all three since these episodes have been previously released on DVD).

It's great they released these 1 hour scooby episodes that followed the 2 season run of scooby doo where are you?. Its just a shame they didn't continue the original 1/2 hour shows as well. The one hour "movies" were filled with a lot of filler chase scenes and seemingly senseless time fillers to stretch them to 1 hour. Many show the same scenes over and over again. I still enjoyed them when I was a kid and will order this set for my 2 year old son. I still find the original series more entertaining than the movies episodes.

Here is a listing of the missing episodes not included in this dvd:

Scooby Doo Meets the Adams Family 1972

A Good Medium is Rare 1972 starring Phyllis Diller

Sandy Duncan's Jeckyll And Hyde 1972

The Secret of Shark Island 1972 stars Sonny and Cher

The Haunted Horseman of Hagglethorn 1972 starring Davey Jones

The Phantom of the Country Music Hall 1972 starring Jerry Reed

Scooby Doo Meets Jeannie (of I dream of Jeannie) 1973

The Haunted Showboat 1973 starring Josie and the Pussycats

The Spirited Spooks Sports Show 1973 starring Tim Conway

Too bad they have release issues with the stars, the Adams Family episode was one of my favorites.

Format: DVD
I've always been a big Scooby Doo fan ever since the show first premiered in 1969 when I was just 6 years old. In 1972, "Scooby Doo, Where are You?" became "The New Scooby Doo Movies". The show was now an hour long instead of 30 minutes and each episode had the gang meet a new guest star each week. This format lasted from 1972 through 1973 and featured 24 total episodes along with a Halloween special. Unfortunately, instead of giving us ALL 25 episodes, Warner Home Video has chosen to give us a "best of" collection of 15 episodes. Why not do all of them is a mystery for Scooby and the gang but I guess beggars cannot be choosers.

"Ghastly Ghost Town" guest stars the Three Stooges. The gang is forced to seek help on foot in the desert after their van is forced onto a sand dune by a low-flying, king-sized bat. They come across Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly-Joe DeRita, whose amusement park is really the one in need of help.

"The Dynamic Scooby Doo Affair" with Batman & Robin. When The Mystery Machine breaks the gang bump into smugglers, Batman and Robin, a little old lady, and a punching clown filled with counterfeit cash. A tip leads them to the carnival. . .where they find Joker and Penguin behind the kooky counterfeit caper. As is usually the case with these villainous villains, our heroes wind up in a funhouse hideout.

"The Frickert Fracas" with Jonathan Winters. Hoping they will have a vacation from haunted houses and spooky characters when Jonathan Winters invites them to stay at Maude Frickert's farm, Scooby-Doo and company soon learn differently when the place becomes overrun with vandalizing scoundrels and living scarecrows.

"Guess who's Knott Coming to Dinner?" with Don Knotts.

Ok - I was a sucker - I was looking forward to this set, but was somewhat dissapointed. If you look at the opening titles, they are not the original titles, like many speculated, WB/HB probably do not have the DVD rights from the likeness of the stars...so the Addams Family, etc are edited out of the opening...With the vast vault of HB material, it would have been nice to get a bunch more extras...maybe features on how the series came about, what it was like working with the celbrities..etc. Other than that, being a 3 Stooges fan, it is nice to see them on DVD but would like to see the other stars...

What else is new.
I agree completely Timothy. It's extremely frustrating, as those of us who enjoy these shows are forced to either accept incomplete collections of our favorite shows or stoop to purchasing bootleg collections of the unreleased stuff.

And let's not forget Warner Bros. with the rest of the Tiny... Read More

Why was Jerry Reed ommitted?
It isn't considered a complete collection. It's a generically titled "Best Of..." collection containing all of the episodes that could legally be put onto the DVD. The heirs of the celebrities (more likely the lawyers of those celebrities) wouldn't give permission for those particular... Read More
