5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE Scooby-Doo!, 25 Mar. 2005
By 
Inspector Gadget "Go Go Gadget Reviews" (On the trail of Doctor Claw) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Scooby Doo Where Are You: Seasons One & Two [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I'm 24 and I'm not afraid to admit that. Scooby is brilliant. And I don't care what you say...he's real! And he's also been around for 36 years now. Hard to believe huh? Millions (dare I say billions?) of kids have grown-up watching Scooby-Doo and I was one of them. While these episodes from the 1960's and 1970's look and feel dated they are still perfectly acceptable and the overall fun of the show is not lessened.
The episodes are as follows.
Season 1
What a Night for a Knight (1969)
A Clue for Scooby Doo (1969)
Hassle in the Castle (1969)
Mine Your Own Business (1969)
Decoy for a Dognapper (1969)
What the Hex Going On? (1969)
Never Ape an Ape Man (1969)
Foul Play in Funland (1969)
The Backstage Rage (1969)
Bedlam in the Big Top (1969)
A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts (1969)
Scooby-Doo and a Mummy, Too (1969)
Which Witch Is Which? (1969)
Go Away Ghost Ship (1969)
Spooky Space Kook (1969)
Season 2
A Night of Fright Is No Delight (1970)
That's Snow Ghost (1970)
Nowhere to Hyde (1970)
Mystery Mask Mix-Up (1970)
Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright (1970)
Jeepers, It's the Creeper (1970)
Haunted House Hang-Up (1970)
A Tiki Scare Is No Fair (1970)
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Werewolf? (1970)
Don't Fool with a Phantom (1970)
Season 2 is slightly better thanks to the inclusion of one really 70's Danny Janssen song per episode. They are actually quite pleasant, easy-listening songs and it gives the Season 2 episodes a higher nostalgic feel.
Of course all 25 episodes adhere to the scrict formula the franchise would soon find it increasingly hard to break away from (and end-up resorting to self-parody instead). Each episode will see the gang going about their ordinary lives before getting involved in a monster mystery. The suspects will all be introduced within 5 minutes. The gang will try to trap the monster but Shaggy and Scooby will screw up and fall into the trap instead. Through sheer luck the monster will be caught and unmasked. The criminal motivations will either be revenge, smugglers dressed up to scare away intruders or townsfolks dressed up to attract tourists. It is very hard to come across a Scooby-Doo episode from any season that doesn't flow this way. But, to be honest, towards the end of the second season the writers did try very hard to put a new spin on things and keep it fresh.
What I like best about the old school Scooby animation is the rustic feel to the backgrounds and settings. The spookyness is painted on in deep purples and blues and makes for surprisingly atmospheric looking environments. While the slick modern nature of the What's New Scooby-Doo TV show is pleasing to the eye there's just something more and better about the old look.
Most of the classic Scooby villains are in here (most of them appearing in Scooby Doo 2) and I strongly suggest that all Scooby-Doo fans buy this box set if they don't have it already. The DVD actually contains some great extras including a cool featurette on Scooby collectors (I must admit I am beaten a zillion times over compared to these guys). Some extras are still fluff tho.
The episodes are presented in 1.33:1 full frame, as originally drawn, with Dolby Mono sound. The quality between them is fairly average with age only marring it occasionally. Still though, you must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scooby-Doo Is the Best!!, 12 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Scooby Doo Where Are You: Seasons One & Two [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I love Scooby Doo some people say he is old fashioned and I admit the new ones are not very good as they are soooooo predictable (eg. Fred's trap will fail then Shaggy and scooby will catch the monster by accident) but the old ones are so much better!! My favourite episode will always be 'A Tiki Scare is No Fair' but still every single one is really good. If you like these shows watch boomerang as it has these shows on everyday. But still I would really recommend this as it has the best cartoons on. Scooby-Doo is my favourite show and this is a vital Scooby-Doo fan collecable!! This DVD is really good as it has 25 episodes (All of them) and special features!!! If you can spare the money buy this immediately!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars scooby doo , where are you ? the best seasons ever !, 5 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Scooby Doo Where Are You: Seasons One & Two [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
in 1969 my nan had a cocktail cabinet colour television ,it must of cost a
small fortune ! she put it on & guess what came on ? yes,"scooby doo where
are you?" my brother & i were astounded & came to her house every week to
see this brilliant cartoon series.
when i first got a video recorder in the 80s i taped all these old mysteries & now i own it on dvd! "which witch is which ?" , "a gaggle of
galloping ghosts"&" mine your own business" are my favourites but to be honest i could watch this classic series again now & be happy !
the third season started to lose the formula hanna barbera should of kept
it simple but in 2007 the latter shows look too good & polished as though
they want a more older audience. i bought seasons 1 & 2 because i intend to watch them over & over again ! buy the dvds & watch them with your kids
thats what there should be more of ,good family fun !

5.0 out of 5 stars Scooby-Doo - The Best Collection, 16 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scooby Doo Where Are You: Seasons One & Two [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The first 2 series ever made and all in one collection - my son was thrilled. Been looking for this for years. Also full screen so they look even better than on tv. Interactive menu is also well done. A quality piece of packaging which I would recommend to any serious SD fans. Region 1 only so you need to be sure you can play it.
