Flinstones, Scooby Doo and others on sale at DDD

I saw this on DDD this morning. There are some decent prices on the Flinstones and Scooby Doo.

Does anyone happen to know DDD's regular price for the Flintstones sets? I was thinking it was around $35, but I'm not sure.

Edited to add: I just checked my order history on DDD and I got the 1st season of the Flintstones for 23.99 during the 20 percent off sale in November 2004. So with the exception of season 4, I think those prices are 20 percent off. The Scooby Doo sets on the other hand seem to be more than 20 percent off of the regular price.

Now that Warners is starting to offer replacement discs for Tom and Jerry
it may be the time to finally get these sets

Picked up the Flinstones Season 4 for $19.49. I don't understand why it was cheaper than the other seasons but decided to grab that one before DDD decides the price was a mistake.

Tempted on several other sets as well. Considering the Flinstones Season 5, Huckleberry Hound Vol 1, and Yogi Bear the Complete Series.

Thanks OP. Been waiting for Wacky Races to go down in price for quite some time. I placed 1 order containing 6 items in this sale and all were backordered.

Thanks for the link. Just gave them a call.
Why must it always be that we have to send in our discs first (or at all).
They made the mistake not us. Why not just ask for some type of proof of
purchase that doesn't involve our sets being incomplete if the mail screws
up in some way (lost in either direction, damaged/scratched new disc).
Just venting

Because while you may be honest, there are always scammers looking to get something for nothing who ruin it for everybody else.
I always figure as with any exchange, return of the original item is required.
Plus, does everbody keep their receipts? I bought mine at DDD over a year ago. I didn't keep the packing slip and I doubt a print out of my order history would do.

I get that there may be scammers, but having to send my disc back first
for what was their mistake is a bit much. Either have us send in something
that came with the disc (an insert or receipt, as to your who keeps receipts
that long question, anyone who would be interested in this replacement has
been waiting a while for the details of the replacement and as such most
likely still has it). I have nothing against shipping my disc back after I receive
the new one, it's the before that worries me.

Some companies do replace discs that they had errors with without asking
for the disc itself first (Stargate Season 8 Disc 5), and some even allow
printouts of online orders (Warner rebates).

BCI for He-Man season 1 replaced not only scratched disks, but also replaced the packaging that was causing the scratches. And they didn't ask for the originals back.

I remember hearing something about them releasing replacement discs for tom and jerry vol 1. Did they ever actually do it though? I still have the original vol 1 from when it came out.

This link has now turned into something called funimation.

The prices are still good though, you just have to find the titles on the search now, it appears.
