Through teamwork and clever investigation, the teen sleuths solve case after case, while unmasking the villains who are usually behind each of the mysteries they encounter.

    “We are thrilled to celebrate the golden anniversary of Scooby-Doo, with the release of this gorgeous, limited edition, collectible set,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing.

    I'll wait for a disc only release. I don't need the extra prizes.

    Does that sticker in the bottom right of the packaging indicate they're making 50,000 of these? Seems like a lot in today's marketplace.

    Interesting this contains 16 of the 24 episodes that were seen on the 2 seasons of The Laugh - Olympics. The 16 were previously released on DVD as SDWAY Season 3. But curious if they are including the later 16 episodes as part of this then why not release the other 8 episodes that have still never had a home video release other than a couple of them being part of collections.

    SDWAY was 2 seasons: 17 episodes for 1969-70 and 8 episodes for 70-71. After that there were many other Scooby doo shows and spinoffs: New Scooby Movies, Scooby Doo-Dynomut hour. The Laugh a -lympics show, Scooby and Scappy doo.
    So yes this does have all 25 episodes of the original SDWAY (1969-71) as well as 16 episodes from Laugh a lympics show (1977) that were released on DVD as SDWAY season 3. It doesn't have the 8 episodes from season 2 of Laugh -a-lympics show that have never been released on home video. Nor does it have any of the other Scooby doo spin off shows.

    It's too bad they didn't include the "Scoobynatural" episode of Supernatural as a bonus. It was based on one of the episodes in this set, "A Night of Fright is No Delight," and Supernatural is a WB production, so it seems like it would be a natural inclusion. Though perhaps they thought the Supernatural version would be a bit too intense for younger viewers (it's a bit scarier and more violent than the original).

    I hope they handle the remaining classic era episodes better than they did on DVD.

    I'd love to see this get followed up with a collection of the remaining episodes of what they now label as 'The Scooby Doo Show' (24 episodes if my count is right after we subtract what's now oddly known as season 3 of Scooby Doo: Where Are You). Own it all digitally on my Xbox, but would love to own it physically.

    Then all the pre-Scrappy stuff would be out on Blu-Ray minus that one episode of The New Scooby Doo Movies.

    Why isn't this over in the TV section, isn't this section for movies only?

    They also need the Scooby Doo/ Dynomut Hour (1976-77) which is rumored to be next. It was on after the New Scooby Movies and before the Laugh a lympics episodes which are known as The Scooby Doo show.

    I would prefer a collection of the Scooby Doo episode from this era. Just put all of the 76-79 (or 80) episodes in one set.

    I wonder what the chances are of a standard edition? I'm not that crazy about the packaging here or the unnecessary extras.

    I just want a nice solid case with an attractive insert (And hopefully a list of what's on each disc on the reverse) that protects the discs well, leaves them easily accessible, and takes up a minimum of shelf space.

    If you're talking about how the original opening music was changed or something like that, I really doubt it.

    I imagine these are the restored high-definition transfers used for DVD and digital distribution years ago. So if it wasn't fixed back then, I doubt it will be here.

    Would love to be wrong though.

    I actually was including those in my count of 24 missing half hour episodes on Blu-Ray after this release.

    Those 16 Scooby Doo segments you mention have been syndicated with the Scooby Doo Show opening ever since I can remember back in the 1980's. And while I'm not real big on streaming services and such, they're also sold as season 1 of The Scooby Doo Show on Xbox Live (I assume the same holds true elsewhere?).

    I'm not real big on Wikipedia, but the opening paragraph I've linked to below accurately describes what content that Warner sells today as The Scooby Doo Show on Xbox Live.

    When my son was little, he became Scooby-obsessed. I was a librarian at the time, so I was able to check out all of the original episodes, which he watched almost on a loop. The first couple of seasons are my favorite, though I enjoy the New Scooby-Doo Movies for the appearances by celebrities of the day. (The Mama Cass one is one big "fat joke," though, and makes me uncomfortable, considering her untimely death.) While he liked the later series as well, I was never a fan of them. I guess it's just because I grew up watching the originals. I'd love to have these on Blu-ray, but I don't think I can justify what they're asking, especially since I could give a rat's patootie for the tchotchkes. Maybe it will go on sale down the road.
