After waiting for brand new releases of more Scooby episodes, I was initially excited when I found out this particular DVD included at least five previously unreleased adventures, some from 'The Scooby-Doo Show' (formerly apart of 'Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics'), and some from 'Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo' (the original series, the Richie Rich episodes from season two, and 'The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries', from season six). Here's a breakdown:
1. The Fiesta Host is an Aztec Ghost (Mexico)
2. The Harum-Scarum Sanitarium (Canada)
3. The Spirits of '76 (Washington, D.C.)
4. A Creepy Tangle in the Bermuda Triangle (Atlantic Ocean)
5. To Switch a Witch (Salem, Massachusetts)
6. A Menace in Venice (Italy)
7. Shiver and Shake, That Demon's a Snake! (Florida Keys)
8. Lock the Door, It's a Minotaur! (Greece)
9. The Ozark Witch Switch (Ozark Mountains, US)
10. Jeepers, It's the Jaguaro! (Brazil)
11. Moonlight Madness (Austria)
12a. Ghosts of the Ancient Astronauts (South America, never specified)
12b. Ghosts of the Ancient Astronauts (South America, never specified)
The entire first disc contains episodes of 'The Scooby-Doo Show', from season one and season three. The next disc contains almost entirely new episodes from 'Scooby-Doo and Scrappy Doo', 'The Scooby-Doo Show', (season two), 'The Richie-Rich Show', and 'The New Mysteries'; It's a little upsetting that there are only twelve episodes here instead of the advertised thirteen (I don't care what anyone else says: Ghosts of the Ancient Astronauts, Parts I & II, does NOT count as two different episodes. The same could be said for Moonlight Madness, seeing as how it's a standalone segment), but whatever. They also could've picked more exotic episodes, like 'A Highland Fling With a Monstrous Thing' (1978), 'I Left My Neck in San Francisco' (1979), and 'Scooby's Chinese Fortune Kooky Caper' (1978). But beggars can't be choosers, I guess. And if this review doesn't explain much, I'll be back and edit as soon as I get the actual DVD.
Yep, just as I figured. The prints on the episodes look fantastic for a first time release (not perfect, but fantastic, nonetheless): they're just as clear as the discs they came in (so don't go and scratch it)! For under $20, this is definitely worth every penny. Keep it up, Warner Bros!
