Desperate for a new way to re-invent the franchise, Warner gave us A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, an interesting, if failed attempt.
The show features the Mystery Inc. gang as kids and Scoob as a little puppy. The humor and animation is more offbeat and Looney-Tunes orientated but the mysteries are still substantial and the locations still occasionally Gothic and atmospheric.
Shaggy and Scooby are still voiced by Casey Kasem and Don Messick. Since they are the backbone of the show it's good to have this consistency. The childhood angle also gives us new insight into their background.
Many have criticised this show, claiming it to be aimed at under-tens and that it an embarrassment to the Scooby-Doo franchise. Well, I never found it to be that way. As a Scooby-Doo fan I thought this show was very amusing and I loved the score and songs by John Debney. There should be a soundtrack CD released. It really is a shame it never lasted for longer.
Since there were only 26 episodes made I can't help but be angry at Warner's awful DVD presentation of the show.Read more ›
A Pup Named Scooby-Doo was one of the better Scooby Doo spinoffs, and ran from 1988 to 1991. It revolves around the Mystery Inc gang when they were kids, and when Scooby-Doo was still a puppy. This DVD contains the first 4 episodes to be aired. in the first episode "A Bicycle Built for Boo" scooby and the gang try to solve the mystery of the green glob that stole Shaggy's bike. In "Wanted Cheddar Alive", a cheese monster wreaks havoc in the Scooby Snack factory and threatens to close it down. "The Shnook Who Took My Comic Book" finds Shaggy and Scooby coming face to face with a monster from their favorite comic book Commander Cool. Finally in "The Sludge Monster from the Earth's core", a sluge monster that just robbed a bank is using scooby's kennel to hide from the cops.
Keep up the good work WB and please release more Scooby-Doo series on DVD. personally I'd love to see the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo on DVD.
The basic premise of the original Scooby sereis remains intact (minor criminal commits cvrime while dressed in a Halloween costume) but the gang themselves--Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby--appear as children, about 10 years yuonger than they were in the original series. The artwork style itself was a drastic departure from the realism present in the orignal "Scooby-Doo" series of 1969; instead, this series draws its influence from the old sight-gag cartoons of the 1940s. The kids themselves, with the exception of Shaggy and SCooby, have had complete personality and appearance makeovers. They look nothing like their teenage selves.
The series was very successful, running from 1988-1991 on ABC and earning an Emmy nomination for Best Animated SEries in 1989. It also marked the return to television of Fred, Velma and Daphne. I give this series f out 5 stars. I withheld the last star due to this show not being released in full box set or full season format. Even if you have never seen the original Scooby show, you can understand this series, as it is a omplete stand-alone show.
The cartoons look great in terms of color, but the menu Puppy could have been drawn better as it looked not up to par as he should have been drawn. It was cute to see him wink and his ears wiggle and so forth...
the WB has done this show right... It really doen't need extras for some groovy fun and the DVD keeps them the way they were aired originally... I hope that other DVDs will take a cue from the WB and leave the shows intact... So Grab a bowl of popcorn and get ready to have fun with a Pup Named Scooby Doo.
