Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, The: The Complete Series (DVD) (Repackaged)
The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour chronicles the outlandish animated union of man and beast to solve crimes - and brings comic relief to the kid in everyone! As the catchy theme song celebrates: "...while Scooby is haunted by a spooky ghost, Dynomutt is doin' what he does most!" That means becoming a mechanical menace to the bad guys, faithfully assisting his action-hero comrade The Blue Falcon. Watch Scooby-Doo, Scooby-Dum (a dim-witted cousin first introduced here) & the Mystery Inc. crew and Dynomutt and the Blue Falcon whenever you feel like watching the dogs!]]>

So really you get 32 episodes. The back of the DVD cover mentions 3 bonus episodes of another Scooby Doo/Dynomutt hour, but all the episodes on the disc had the same opening from 1976.
The bonus features include a photo gallery of art, interview with Fred Silverman and other creators - abt 13 min., interview with the voice actors abt. 8 min, and 3 cartoon trailers. These are all from 2005 and kindy glossy and fun. They don't go into much depth. But it's fun to see the actors portray the voices as if 30 years hadn't gone by.
Here's hoping we get more Scooby Doo DVDs like the rest of the stuff that hasn't been released and perhaps a box set with everything vintage together. There were lots of shows over a 20 year period, but most were only 13 or 16 episodes long and half hour programs at that.
The picture and sound quality are very good (well, as good as mono sound can be), at least for the Scooby-Doo episodes (the picture for the Dynomutt episodes is not nearly as clean). The special features are another plus, definitely better than any of the previous Scooby-Doo collections. I especially liked the "In Their Own Words" segment, since I've wanted to see interviews with the great voice talent on the show for a long time. I was really impressed by Frank Welker, who does the voice for Dynomutt in addition to Fred, and can also do quite a range of sound effects. I also enjoyed the segment on the history of the show, "Eerie Mystery Of Scooby-Doo And Dynomutt's History".
The one complaint I have is about the packaging. The way the discs are arranged makes it hard to take them out - on each side of the box one disc partially covers the other, so you sometimes have to remove one disc just to get to another. This leads to the potential for scratching the discs, in addition to being inconvenient. I would have preferred to have separate, non-overlapping places to store each disc, as in the other Scooby-Doo box sets.
Overall, I liked this set and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Scooby-Doo, particularly the "vintage years" (1969-78). I look forward to the release of the remaining episodes of "The Scooby-Doo Show".
IMPORTANT: Remember to flip DVDs. Some extra episodes are on the other sides.
