Scooby-Doo, the crazy cartoon Great Dane, got his start back in 1969 on the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! series. The show ran for just two seasons and 25 episodes but Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne proved so popular that they’ve since starred in numerous other series, live-action movies, animated movies, comics, and much more.
Warner Bros. is currently releasing the original series on DVD in volumes. Volume four kicks off when Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo get lost in a swamp and ask a zombie for directions. Can they add up the clues to figure out “Which Witch Is Which?” Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are then captured by Redbeard the Pirate in “Go Away Ghost Ship.” When the Mystery Machine runs out of fuel on a creepy abandoned airfield, the teen sleuths run right into a “Spooky Space Kook.” In the final mystery, Scooby-Doo inherits big bucks from a dead millionaire. There’s a catch: our heroes must spend a night in a haunted mansion before Scooby-Doo can collect in “A Night of Fright Is No Delight.”
The disc also includes a bonus episode from the more recent Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue! series called “Lightning Strikes Twice.”
