Scooby Doo Where Are you is on DVD and it’s great! On this DVD there are 4 original episodes of Scooby Doo the crime solving dog and the gang of meddling kids to watch. The episodes are: Decoy For a Dognapper, What The Hex Is Going On?, Never Ape an Ape Man, and Foul Play in Funland. Scooby fans will recognize these as episodes from season one of the original cartoon.

What is not to like about this series? For those of us old enough to remember the first time around, these four episodes are a great walk down memory lane. If you are introducing the comic antics of Scooby, Shaggy and the gang to a younger generation, this is a fantastic way to do it. The language is clean, and ‘groovy’, and there is virtually no violence to speak of - just a lot of chase scenes.
One of the best things about the early Scooby shows is that Fred, Velma, Daphne, Scooby, and Shaggy always manage to figure out “Whodunit” and it is always logical; the bad guy is always dressed in an elaborate costume, and leaves clues that are revealed in their entirety when brainiac Velma divulges the culprit at the end. There may not be a lot of messages in this DVD, but a couple that come out loud and clear are that kids are smart and can figure out a lot of stuff on their own, and they can be brave in the face of what seem to be extraordinary circumstances.
The special feature on this DVD (because there is only one) is an episode of the new version of Scooby (Scooby Doo and Shaggy Get a Clue), of which I am less a fan.
Bump in the Night Volume 2 of Scooby Doo Where Are You is a great DVD, and my whole family would recommend it to kids of all ages. This is a fun way to revisit the Scooby series.
