Limited edition set contains all 41 episodes of the 3 season television series. Hanna- Barbera series featuring Scooby Doo, a dog who joins Velma, Daphne, Freddie, and Shaggy on many quests to solve mysterious. Each mystery is new and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. Scooby-Doo was a large, loveable but cowardly Great Dane who hung around four California high school students (Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy). The four teen-agers were in constant search of mysteries and adventures, driving around in a bright green van known as the Mystery Machine. Many of the group's adventures involved villians who took on supernatural disguises (ghosts and monsters); the villians' activities usually involved blackmail, theft, fraud and other forms of corruption. At the first hint of trouble, Scooby-Doo (and usually, Shaggy as well) running for cover; they usually found themselves in even deeper trouble. It usually took the promise of a Scooby snack to get Scooby (and Shaggy) to come out of hiding. The mysteries were always solved by the end of each show.

The success of the series lead to an hour-long series in 1972 called "The New Scooby-Doo Movies." This series is partially available on DVD, but is not included in this set.
Scooby-Doo returned in 1976 with 16 new half-hour episodes that were paired with another Hannah-Barbara show (Dynomutt, Dog Wonder) in a series called "The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour." The 16 episodes were later retitled "The Scooby-Doo Show" for reruns and are sometimes referred to as Season 1 of that series. These episodes aren't included, but are available separately.
In 1977, 8 more episodes were produced under a 2-hour package called "Scooby's All-Star Laugh-A-Lympics." These episodes were also rebroadcast as part of "The Scooby-Doo Show" and are referred to as Season 2 of that series. Scoobs also appeared in 16 30-minute segments of the "Laff-A-Lympics" series with other Hannah-Barbara characters. None of these episodes are in this set.
Which leads to 1978, when 16 more episodes were produced under the name "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" 8 of these episodes were broadcast with the original series' opening and closing credits. When the lineup changed, the remaining 8 were aired under a package called "Scooby's All Stars." Like the `76 and `77 episodes, when these episodes were reaired, they were listed as part of "The Scooby-Doo Show" and are often referred to as Season 3 of that series, in addition to being known as Season 3 of the original series. These are also sometimes called the "lost" episodes. Since they were originally aired under the name "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!", Warner released them on DVD as the third season of the original series and included them in this set.
Based solely on the seasons that were produced under the name "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!", this box set collects those 41 episodes produced from 1969-1970 and 1978 and presents them as "The Complete Series." It's not a lie. It's not false advertising. It's just not a compendium of every Scooby-Doo series that ever existed, which is what some people think it is.
The packaging of this release is cardboard, but is fairly sturdy. It's definitely not a toy. A plastic version was previously made and has been out of print for a few years. That version housed the discs in cardboard sleeves, prone to scratching. In this release, all 8 discs are housed in an extra-wide DVD case, presenting them more securely than the previous release. This case fits nicely inside the drawer that slides out from the back of the Mystery Machine packaging.
If you're a big fan of Scooby-Doo, this is a nice way to collect all of the "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" episodes. This is the original series and is still considered the best Scooby-Doo series ever made. If you're looking to collect every episode of Scooby animation that's ever been made, this won't be the last Scooby-Doo set you purchase.
Fast forward 40 some years...I have yet to find a TV show my whole family can enjoy together, while being age appropriate, and inspiring imaginative play. So we've gone 'old school' and brought the joy of Scooby and the Gang into our home thanks to this complete set of the original Scooby-Doo series. It's a huge hit with young and old alike!
Because these were created in the late 60s/early 70s, I expected a grainy picture and poor sound quality. Not so. Picture and sound are good.
Worth every penny. I'm looking forward to the bonus features too.
I'm normally not a fan of packaging that is much bigger than the product. While the box is way bigger than the actual DVD case, it is the BEST BOX EVER! Full color Mystery Machine in two pieces big enough to hold action figures and made-up villians.
UNEXPECTED EXPERIENCE: 👍
My 6 year old loves the Mystery Machine box! Hell 'drive' it around the living room acting out the show as we're watching. He'll pause only briefly to retrieve an unrelated toy which he reimagines into a monster, villian or one of the Gang for the creative play the show inspires.
This DVD series has every original episode in the order they were aired.
The plot varied little from episode to episode. The main concept was as follows:
- The gang is driving in the Mystery Machine (van), when their van develops engine trouble or breaks down for any of a variety of reasons
- They quickly find out they are stranded somewhere with monster problems and start to investigate
- They generally split up; with Scooby and Shaggy getting chased by the monster and fleeing in fear
- Generally Velma figures out the clues and Fred sets a trap to catch the monster
- They are successful, the monster is unveiled to be someone they've met
- The person behind the mask says "I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids"
There's often a lot of humor in here - for kids and adults alike.
