I grew up watching Scooby-Doo cartoons on Saturday morning and I still love watching the original series (thanks to the Boomerang network). This series was updated but managed to retain the charm of the original. I consider it the first true successor to the original series as it stuck to the familiar concept of solving mysteries (those meddling kids). The animation and music is great (the theme song is sung by Simple Plan). Frank Welker reprised his role as voice of Fred (Jones) and Casey Kasem as the voice of Shaggy (Rogers). Thankfully, no Scrappy-Doo or other silliness like some of the Scooby related shows. Even the current show: Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, which is nice to look at but the story with Velma and Shaggy now having a secret relationship is bizarre.

Back to What's New Scooby-Doo... For such a great show, I'm shocked that it only lasted three seasons. It is a cartoon the whole family can watch, which is getting harder and harder to find.

FYI: For some reason (as of 9/29/10), it is much cheaper to buy the individual seasons than to buy the Complete Series...

I have to say, as far as scooby doo goes, "Scooby-Doo Where are You?!" was probably the absolute best of them all, but with all of the remake failures and pathetic straying, this really resets the standrd for scooby doo. I have to say, this is as far away from the original as I prefer to go. Just the right amount of cartoonishism, with a dab of elden day reminders. The only con is...WHERE is Fred's ascot?!?!?

This is a great modern day update of the classic Scooby cast and format of the show. I consider the pros and cons as follows...

Pros

- No Scrappy-Doo
- The modern animation techniques give everything a sharp polished look
- The self-deprecating humor and in-jokes in some of the episodes are nice touches
- Daphne has been given some brains and isn't just there taking up space
- Shaggy still voiced by Casey Kasem

Cons

- Fred seems to have been dumbed down quite a bit. While it could be said he's more 'fun' now, he's not quite the brave intelligent leader from the originals series.
- While a voiceover genius, even Frank Welker can't quite do Scooby as well as the late Don Messick, which might explain why Scooby doesn't seem to get much dialog at all.
- The series seem a lot lighter in setting than the original series (lots of day based episodes). It's not quite as dark and spooky, and the music not as atmospheric.
- The series follows the unfortunate (to me) format of the musical interlude mid episode. Made worse by the fact that the music here is very average punk/ska.

All in all though, very much a great update of a classic series, sticking pretty closely to the original, well worth a look.

My daughter who is 6 years old loves Scooby Doo. We bought this having watched the first 2 series of the 1960s originals. She enjoys them all, from both eras. For my money, some of the original charm is missing from this new set, but hey I guess that's what happens when a 40-year old series is updated. Even so, "What's New Scooby Doo" is great fun for youngsters and preferable to many TV shows on a Saturday morning. Recommended.

I grew up watching the original Scooby-Doo Shows and became addicted to it. I'm collecting all shows and movies with Scooby and the gang. I've watched these videos over and over again. I've really enjoy them. I'm really glad Kasey Kasem is back as Shaggy. This is a must have for any Scooby fan.

I didn't think that What's new Scooby Doo would be any good until I bought Scooby Doo Chills And Thrills Holiday 2012. There were a couple of episodes there. I liked it, quite a bit surprisingly, so I ordered the entire series for a great deal at Amazon. The packaging was a nice job. And the entire series was watchable. no scratches. Ordering through Amazon is always a trust worthy source and the free super savings shipping and handling is always a good thing for $25 and over order total.

As a person who viewed the original Scooby Doo episodes as a child, I am watching my boys (7 and 4) get just as much enjoyment from the show. As a parent viewing the updated versions with my kids I like the plots (relevant to today) and the new music works well-I agree with other reviewers who say this is a successful updated version of Scooby-Doo. I like how Daphne is not portrayed as "ditsy" when compared with the original version.

Who doesn't like Scooby Doo? I've loved the cartoons since I was a child. These aren't as creative as some of the other Scooby's I've seen but still entertaining none the less.

My grandson really loves the Scooby-Doo series. Since a DVD is hard to find in regular stores I was delighted to purchase it through Amazon. We recieved the DVD in record time and he's practically worn it out all ready.

Each season consisted of 13 episodes and a special holiday episode. These are the bonus episodes contained in each dvd set. They are however all mixed up. The Christmas episode, on the third season disc, is actually from the first season. The valentines day episode, found on the first season disc, is from the third season. The Halloween episode, however, is from the second season and also contained on that disc. Not sure why the other two are mixed up. There's no continuity in this show so it makes no difference, just thought collectors would like to know.

This is a great series, second only to the original Where Are You! series. Each season contains a special episode for die-hard scooby fans, like in the first season when we learn the origin of the mystery machine. Or in the second season, when the Hex girls appear once again, and in the third season when there's a flashback to A Pup Named Scooby-Doo! Those were all really neat to see, having seen every episode of the classic scooby, and all the recent DTV films.
