Ok. This is not Scooby Doo Where are you this is the Scooby Doo show. This would be a bad thing if not for one important point. The 69/70 series is readily available on DVD but many of these are not. Some were included in the Dynomutt set a few years back there are at least 8 episodes that I could not find anywhere so I'm thrilled to have them in HD. This is really the last great series of adventures before Scrappy and should be owned by All Scooby fans! I bought the whole season and am now VERY happy!
