Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: The Complete Series Blu-ray -- 9/3/19

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that it will release on Blu-ray Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: The Complete Series (1969-1978). The box set will be available for purchase on September 3.

Studio description: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) salutes that lovable Great Dane, Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang with the release of Scooby-Doo, Where are You!: The Complete Series Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Mystery Mansion. Available in stores on September 3, 2019, this release is packaged in an eye-catching, limited edition collectible mystery mansion giftset that includes all 41 episodes of the original series, Scooby-Doo!

Scooby-Doo follows the adventures of four teens, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and his lovable, but cowardly Great Dane, Scooby-Doo, as they travel far and wide in their stylish van, the Mystery Machine, to solve mysteries involving ghosts, monsters and other supernatural forces.

I watched the hell out of these as a kid, then when Boomerang started showing them, I watched some of them again. A lot of them don’t really hold up well. I dunno, if it drops into the $40 range, I may pick it up for my kids.

Wait, so the series ran for 9 years (1969 - 1978) and there were only 41 episodes?

I used to love the show when I was a kid, the new Scooby Doo seriesí just donít have the same magic that ď...Where are You?Ē did.

No, "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?" was 25 episodes over 2 seasons (1969-1970).

Looks like they included Season 3 of the "Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour (1978)" series for the other 16 episodes.

Edit: Wikipedia says this about the latter 16, although the epguides.com listing has the other 16 episodes as I mentioned above.

In 1978, a selection of episodes from the later series Scooby's All-Stars and The Scooby-Doo Show were aired on ABC under the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! name and they were released in a DVD set marketed as its third season

Thanks. That makes sense.

Im going to wait and see if this set gets a decent price reduction or is released in a standard edition that doesnít include the haunted house packaging, encyclopedia, or funko figure (which looks more like Scrappy than Scooby).

Yeah, I want a standard packaging edition too. Once thatís available Iíll pick this up for sure though. I wouldnít mind the Pop, but it doesnít look like Scooby to me.

I’d like something like this but that price tag is a killer. I can wait for a cheap, barebones edition.

Zoinks! $73 for 4 blu rays, a doll and a book? I find it odd that the press release doesn't mention anything about the main selling point: that this will be available on an HD format for the first time. Was it remastered in HD from additional elements? Or just a port of the DVD version on less discs?

Warner would never issue SD on Blu-ray. They'll be remastered for HD.

This came out this week. Looks like a nice set but I wish the price was lower on it. I know if I grab it for $80 itíll drop lower. I paid full price for The New Scooby-Doo Movies: The (Almost) Complete Collection and itís dropped considerably a few times since I got it.

Did the Scooby-gang unmask the culprit of Fred's stolen eyebrow?

Lovely set though I hate the bundling of shit plastic like funko pop.

Standard packaging + cheap price = instant purchase

Lots of complaints about DNR on the video and questionable compression. Haven't seen it myself, so can't confirm.

Yes. The Blu-rays look really bad in comparison to the non-DNR'd Amazon stream.
