The Scooby-Doo! Shaggy's Showdown and Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold DVDs both feature "Ghastly Ghost Town," "The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair" as bonus episodes. However, despite that the original Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies DVD set had to edit out images of certain celebrities from the intro, both of the bonus episodes on these DVDs feature the original intro including the celebrities who have refused to allow their episodes to be released.
Additionally, "The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair," "The Loch Ness Mess" and "The Mystery of Haunted Island" all have the original, unedited intro on the Boomerang streaming service.
It remains uncertain if this was an error, or if WB is in negotiation with these celebrities to allow their episodes to be released on home media.
Thanks so much to Deandre for coming up with this fun fact!

The following image is the variant cover (the top image is the regular cover for #36).
Young Sheldon, the spinoff of the hit TV comedy The Big Bang Theory, currently holds the record for most times Scooby-Doo has been referenced in a single season. In the show's first season, Sheldon's little sister Missy was shown three times watching an episode of Scooby-Doo. The first two times were already documented in Fun Fact #183 on April 9, 2018, and the third instance was in the episode "A Dog, A Squirrel, and a Fish Named Fish." In this episode, Sheldon was watching the scene where Scooby pretends to be a magician from "Hassle in the Castle" in order to get over his fear of dogs.
Alexander from Josie and the Pussycats (which is considered a "Scooby Clone" show, and Alexander was the Shaggy of the series) is voiced by Casey Kasem, the same person who voiced Shaggy.
This caused an animation error at one point in "The Haunted Showboat" from The New Scooby-Doo Movies (which Josie and the Pussycats guest-starred in). In one scene, Shaggy says "Me too!" to which Alexander replies "Me three!" However, Alexander replies this in Velma's voice. Immediately following this, Shaggy, Scooby and Alexander run away and begin screaming, however, Alexander screams with Velma's voice once again. Though there were many instances of characters swapping voices in this series, this instance was the longest of the series.
This was possibly due to the fact that it would have caused Casey Kasem to have two lines in a row for different characters, and the fact that Shaggy and Alexander's screams would not be differentiated from one another due to Casey Kasem using very similar voices for both characters.
Bonus points to anyone who guessed why I picked this particular episode for today's fun fact. Today's fun fact is #222, and this is the 2nd episode of the 2nd season of the 2nd series. Get it? :D
