Popular animated series featuring Scooby-Doo, a Great Dane who joins four California high school students (Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy) on many quests to solve strange mysteries. Each mystery is current and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. The gang were always driving in the Mystery Machine, returning from or going to a regular teenage function, when their van develops engine trouble or breaks down for a variety of reasons. Their (unintended) destination turns out to be suffering a monster problem, and the gang volunteers to investigate the case. Eventually, enough clues are found to convince the gang that the ghost or monster was a villain. Invariably, the ghost or monster was apprehended and revealed to be an apparently blameless authority figure or otherwise innocuous local who uses the disguise to cover up a crime or scam.

The re-run prints that first aired on CBS in 1971 feature standardized opening title music for all first season episodes. A number of the first season episodes feature alternate opening (and/or closing) theme music (see trivia). Excepting prints aired on cable between between 1990 and 1998 (which were time-compressed copies of the original broadcast prints, all but the first two missing their laugh tracks), all re-runs of this show use the 1971 prints.

This stuff keeps getting better. I grew up on Scooby, and now I get to watch it with my kids. I know I've seen all four of these episodes a hundred times (about half of those in the month we've owned the tape), but it doesn't matter. Even if you can recite the dialogue line for line, it's still great TV. And unlike those package deals with live action shows, repeated viewings of Scooby and company are never tedious. Thanks to the Cartoon Network for sticking four on the tape (two seems all too common with TV show video tapes) and for keeping Scrappy Doo where he belongs (out of site). The "behind the scenes" clips are fun, too.
