    I think it's only the 1964-65 series, the one most of us know by heart...

    Here are communications between WHV and myself regarding a replacement disc for The New Scooby-Doo Movies "The Haunted Showboat" error. I was able to get a response by including a paragraph in a message that was otherwise regarding replacement discs for the Batman complete series Blu-ray. Hopefully they stick to their word and send out replacement discs:

    Me: "I would also like to check on the progress of replacement discs for the recent The New Scooby-Doo Movies. “The Haunted Showboat” is out of sync on the set and it is unacceptable and warrants a replacement. I noticed WB have fixed the issue on the digital copies so they are clearly aware of the issue. I paid full price of $60 USD for this set so I either want the defective disc replaced or a refund. It was bad enough that you crammed all the episodes on to two discs and expected us to pay that much, but then to have an entire episode in an unwatchable state and to not correct that is unacceptable."

    WHV: "For Scooby-Doo, that is in the works of being fixed."

    Very vague, however it is the first response I've been able to get from them regarding the issue.

    How are late purchasers rewarded? New sets likely won’t include the replacement disc for years, if at all. Everyone who wants them will likely have to request them.

    I'm glad they're aware of the synch issue but how will we know when the replacement discs for the Scooby Doo Movies title are available?

    I would hope they’d do a press release like they have for past replacement programs.

    I was hoping they'd do that- How are you all getting answers from WHV? I have written to them about other shows and got no response.
    Are you writing on their Facebook page or just direct letters through their Email address?

    Like I said, I originally asked about Batman replacement discs and included my question in a reply to an existing conversation. So any existing replacement program should work as a starting point.

    Generally, when there are replacement disks, the studios replace the stock of major sellers like Amazon so new purchasers don’t have to get replacements. That’s what I meant

    They didn’t replace the stock when Batman got replacement discs. They didn’t even replace the discs in the repackaged set that was yet to be released. They stated in the press release for that set that all the purchasers of that new set would have to request replacement discs after it was released. So other studios might do that and just not Warner Bros, or more likely the original discs for whatever titles you’re thinking of just sold out quickly.

    I bought the individual seasons of Batman on DVD. As I recall, Batman Season 1 was released on DVD simultaneously with the complete series on DVD and Blu-Ray. Eventually, the corrected disc was added to the individual Season 1 set. Those copies had a sticker with a new bar code over the original bar code on the back cover. That's how you could tell if the set was a corrected version or not. Whichever set had the other corrected episode (I think Season 2/Part 1) came out separately after the corrected discs were created, so the individual set was correct from the beginning.

    So maybe if there is a "fixed" version of the Scooby-Doo Movies, it might have a new bar code added on a sticker.

    For all new Warner releases, when they are announced, they should also announce when the replacement version will be released too -- since it's practically ubiquitous with them.

    Jerry Beck on a Touché Turtle release - “They have prints of everything but a lack of negatives. That’s the problem. Wally Gator and Lippy the Lion had a higher percentage of negatives available. They are undecided on whether they should release Touché Turtle or not, so if you want them to, make your voice heard.”

    WHAT!?!?!

    NUH-uh. What do they think, wait 10 years and then better source material will magically appear?

    I am all for making these releases the best they can be but come on...so they want to release two-thirds of the package and then leave us hanging like they did with Magilla/Potamus?

    (Actually, even though Potamus came out TEN YEARS after Magilla, I guess it was worth the wait since Potamus was beautifully remastered, while Magilla -- a much higher profile show -- went out with existing video masters of the cartoons and missing the show opening and closing. I'm 51 now, and Touche was a little before my time by a few years!)

    How much better would it be? Would the target audience still be alive by then?

    Do negatives even exist?

    My vote: Just put it out. Enough already.

    And the Banana Splits too!

    I do vote for Touche Turtle (except, how would I vote for them to get this released?)!

    In the meantime, I left a comment on WAC's Facebook page about this... we shall see!

    why not just release whatever you have in lesser quality, for DVD only, and everything that CAN be restored to high quality for both DVD AND Blu-Ray?

    at this point these shows are so old,
    we just want them released regardless.
