The following is the back cover art for the two New Scooby-Doo Movies sets being released on June 4. Note that the special features on the (Almost) Complete Collection are the same ones as on the original Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies set released previously. The Lost Episodes set has no special features, though does feature a different description on the back cover (the Almost Complete Collection has the same description as the original Best Of Set, except with Sonny & Cher and Jeannie added). Oddly, on the Lost Episodes back cover, "Mystery in Persia" and "The Haunted Showboat" are listed in the wrong order.
On June 4, a complete series What's New, Scooby-Doo? DVD set will be released in stores according to Barnes and Noble. This special 50th anniversary collector's series set includes all three seasons of WNSD together in a single set, though oddly, according to the back cover, the three holiday specials are not included in this set. There are also no special features. I was a bit disappointed to see the animation was just some goofy stock pose, instead of the actual What's New, Scooby-Doo? animation.
Here's the description:
THE COMPLETE WHAT'S NEW SCOOBY-DOO SERIES FULL OF MYSTERY AND FUN! Zoinks! The gang's all here, and the villains are too, but with a twist, in What' s New Scooby-Doo? This series takes everybody's favorite cowardly Great Dane, along with Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy, and puts them smack-dab in the middle of more capers, cases and creepy crime scenes! These world-famous sleuthing teens are always up for action-packed, hair-raising adventures. Lovable canine Scooby and the always-hungry Shaggy take center stage, and the mysteries take us to international locations such as Moscow, Paris and Hong Kong. Whether they' re tracking an ice monster from the slopes of a snowboarding competition, investigating a zombie gladiator in the ancient city of Pompeii or uncovering a magician's ghost in glittery Las Vegas, the gang continues to face new villains and solve mysteries, all while retaining the sensibility and sense of humor that have made Scooby-Doo a favorite of children and adults throughout the world. These kids have a timeless cool that never goes out of style!
According to DeepDiscount.com, a new quintuple-feature film set will be released on June 4. This collection will feature Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness, Scooby-Doo & KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery, Scooby-Doo & WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon, Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost.
I must admit I'm a bit surprised that they chose Moon Monster Madness over WrestleMania Mystery, as that would have gone with the theme they were going for, but nonetheless I'm glad to see all these releases for the 50th anniversary!
Almost 15 years after the original The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies DVD set was released, WB has finally acquired the rights to release eight of the nine episodes that were originally missing from the set due to copyright issues.
On June 4, 2019, The New Scooby-Doo Movies: The (Almost) Complete Collection will be released in stores, featuring all episodes of the series except "Wednesday is Missing" featuring the Addams Family, presumably due to continued contract negotiation issues.
Here's the episode listing, thanks to AnimationMagazine.net:
Additionally, another set entitled "The New Scooby-Doo Movies: The Lost Episodes," featuring only the eight missing episodes will be released on that same day.
Here's the episode listing for that set:
Last but not least, WB has also announced that they will release a Best of Warner Bros. 50 Cartoon Collection – Scooby-Doo DVD on July 30, 2019. Nothing else is known about the set at this time, except "a collection of the best episodes from every Scooby-Doo series especially compiled to mark the golden anniversary."
I am so excited that they are finally releasing these episodes to commemorate the 50th anniversary. I must admit, out of all the options, I never would have thought they would have done this. I hope the "50 Cartoon Collection" set will include a bunch of unreleased episodes as well!
You have the Golden Collection... you have the Diamond Collection... but do you have the COPPER collection? Do you have all the Where Are You episodes already, but still want to spend your hard-earned money on yet another set of episodes that have been released again and again?
Well, then you're in luck!
The Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Copper Collection includes all 25 episodes of the original series, which you probably already have on another DVD. Why wish for unreleased episodes, when you can just buy the same ones over and over again?
But that's not all! This set includes a plethora of exciting special features, including an exclusive interview with the WB DVD production crew, entitled "We're Out of Ideas!" This special feature has been released multiple times on every single disc. Other special features include "Get A Clue: The Destruction of Your Childhood," "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo: Why Does It Look So Much Like Family Guy?" and "Haha, Scrappy Sucks: 17 Years Later - A Retrospective."
With the new Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Copper Collection, you and your family can enjoy hours of entertainment which you already have on other DVDs, Blu-Rays, and possibly even digital platforms!
A special statement was also given by director of WB marketing, April F. Ools. Ools states "We know everyone is a big fan of Where Are You. So why even bother releasing new episodes, when people can just enjoy the same couple of episodes being released again and again?"
The Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Copper Collection is available in stores now.
In "The Weird Winds of Winona" from The New Scooby-Doo Movies, two notable discontinuities with the Speed Buggy series are present. Firstly, Speed Buggy's remote is typically red, however, in this episode, it is shown as black throughout the entire episode. Mark's skin complexion is also oddly shown as being significantly lighter than it is in the Speed Buggy series, which was animated and aired at the same time that this episode was.
