Scooby-Doo Seasons question

I just bought the Scooby-Doo Dynomutt hour set and instead of having a plastic slipsleeve where part of it is clear and the inner digipak shows through (season 1 & 2 of scooby-doo where are you? and the best of the scooby movies sets are like that) it has the same design but is a standard cardboard slip cover and digipak. Are all copies of this set like that?

I can't say I mind the change, as the design is the same, but there was a certain "cool" factor with the plastic slip sleeve and the deseign on the digi pak matching up.

I believe the one I bought my fiancee was the same. I agree, the packaging was pretty cool with the slipcase lining up with the digipack. Not much we can do about it though. Kinda hard to make a custom cover like that

I think they changed the packaging in order to save on shelf space. I also wasn't too crazy about the double sided discs, but I'm coping. I really hope they just put the remaining episodes (24, I think) of Scooby-Doo out in one set rather than splitting up the remaining two "seasons". I honestly tried to watch some of the Dynomutt Show, but it just seemed really silly. Granted, I never saw this when I was a kid so it doesn't have the same nostalgia factor that Scooby does.

there are only 24 scooby-doo episodes left ? Is this counting every show that did NOT have scrappy-doo in it?

As a kid I watched this every day and it seems like there were many more than 4 series worth of shows. Here's another question, I haven't watched it yet, but I noticed the Scooby-doo Movies set is a "Best of". Are there missing episodes from this series (do to rights I would imagine) ? If so, how many are missing ?

It was always my understanding that the seasons 1/2 set covered all the original episodes, before Scrappy came along (and it jumped the shark IMO), excluding the specials and movies.

If that's not true, I'd like to know as well.

The 24 left refers to 'The Scooby Doo Show' which is the blanket name given during syndication to the episodes from Scooby/Dynomutt, Scooby's Laff-a-lympics, Scooby's All Stars, and some episodes that ran on their own. After that comes the Scrappy episodes.
For the Scooby-Movies, yes, there are episodes missing. There were 24 but 9 were missing because of rights issues with the celebrity likenesses.

Anybody know which 9 episodes are missing? (please don't say Phyllis Diller)

Bump.

I was just browsing over at Amazon and came across this:

http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/B000M2E...852487-2925615

I think it's the rest of the remaining "original" episodes, but there might be a few more that are not included.

Edit: After consulting wikipedia and my previous posts, it does look like there are eight more episodes that are not in this set. I wish they would've just put them altogether in one release rather than splitting them up. Too bad.

Technically, there was no third season of "Where Are You?" but I'll let that slide in order to get some more Scooby Doo on DVD!

The "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?" third season kind of was actually a third season. In 1978, 9 of the 16 episodes that are going to be on that set did run with the Where Are You title card and sequence when they originally aired. The last 7 were part of the Scooby's All Stars programming block.
As for those 8 other episodes, from 1977, I don't know what they'll do with those. They ran as part of the Scooby's All Star Laff-A-Lympics programming block, along with Laff-A-Lympics, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels and Dynomutt, Wonder Dog, so I don't know if they'll put all of those in one big set or not.

EDIT: My math was bad

I guess I stand corrected. Unfortunately some of the missing episodes are ones I haven't seen in years. The episode with the phantom race car driver was great and the one where they go on that cruise ship with the professor's time machine was classic! Even the one about the terradactyl creature at the hang gliding competition brings back some fond memories.

It looks like some of the later episodes that will be included are some of the lamer ones. "The Menice in Venice" comes to mind. I don't even think the main bad guy was a monster or anything, just a dude. I could be wrong though.

I'm confused. Are any "Laff-A-Lympics" segments gonna be on this release (or any future one), or is it just more mysteries?

Just mysteries. Scooby's All-Star Laffalympics was just a package show, with 4 segments: Scooby-Doo, Laff-A-Lympics, Dynomutt, Dog Wonder and Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels. The next year it was renamed to Scooby's All Stars and had the same shows minus Dynomutt, Dog Wonder. 7 of the 16 episodes that will be on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? ran in the Scooby's All Stars package, but were still standard Scooby episodes.
As for whether Laff-A-Lympics segments willl be on any future release, I don't know, but I hope so.
