I realize that generally I reserve this blog for news, but I wanted to share that I've created a new page on the site. I've added a "List of Scooby-Doo Releases" page (which can be found under "Home Media Releases" on the side menu bar. On this page (or rather several pages) I've listed each individual DVD organized by the type of set. You can find pages for Season Sets, Volumes, and Movies. Under each set I've listed the cover art, release date, episodes included, format (ex: DVD vs. Blu-Ray), number of discs and any special features that the set may include. I hope this is a helpful tool that will make finding and classifying the DVDs you want easier, especially in the sense that WB often releases both volumes and season sets for the exact same series (A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, for example). The season sets are often less expensive in the long run, as they are generally about $20-30 while purchasing all the different volumes can run about $10 per volume. I created these pages in attempt to help Scooby fans research which DVDs have which episodes on them, as quite frankly it can be very challenging to know which DVDs are worth your money and which aren't.
However, you may notice I did not include any of the double feature sets on the Movies page. I considered including them, but I worried it might make things too cluttered and confusing for people if I added all the double feature DVDs WB has released over the years. That's why I wanted to ask you all (as you're the ones who are viewing the site!) if you thought the double feature sets should be included on the page, or if would only serve to make the page confusing.
If you have an opinion on this, please let me know in the poll below!
POLL UPDATE: Due to the very close amount of votes between "Yes" and "No," I just added the titles of each of the double features for now.
I also plan to eventually add a Compilation Sets page, though due to huge amount of compilation sets out there, it could take quite a while to complete. In the meantime, I hope these pages are useful and serve as a good research tool before you purchase any Scooby DVDs.
According to EzyDVD in Australia, LEGO Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash will likely be the next released Scooby-Doo movie. We also now have a summary for the movie:
Mystery, Inc. heads to Blowout Beach for a real swinging beach party. But when the Ghost Pirates threaten to harsh the good vibes, it's up to the Scooby Gang to get the party back on track and save the day!
Not much else is known at the moment, other than the movie will be 69 minutes long, and will be released on DVD in Australia on July 26, 2017.
Jane Wiedlin, who voices Dusk, is also part of a very famous pop group, The Go-Gos. They are most known for their hits "We Got The Beat" and "Vacation." The group had seven songs reach the Billboard Hot 100, giving them significant fame.
Fans already frustrated with how WB has been treating Be Cool Scooby-Doo will be very disappointed with what they announced today.
Today, Variety reported that representatives from WB have announced that the upcoming theatrical film S.C.O.O.B. will not be released on September 21, 2018, and has been pushed back nearly a full two years, to May 15, 2020. No reason was provided by WB for the excessive delay in release date. It is also worth noting that WB did announce two more film release date delays ("Tag," "Godzilla vs. Kong" in addition to S.C.O.O.B., though both films were only delayed a single week.
It honestly makes me wonder if something is going on behind-the-scenes at WB causing all these delays, both from Be Cool Scooby-Doo and now S.C.O.O.B.. It seems very peculiar that the other delayed films were only delayed a single week, while S.C.O.O.B. was delayed an excessive two years.
Though I doubt anyone really even cares that WB's next released DVD will be another repackaging, but here's the info just in case you are:
The next DVD, released on June 6, 2017, will be entitled "What's New Scooby-Doo: 4 Kid Favorites." This repacking of Volumes 6, 8, 9 and 10 (not sure why 7 was skipped) will include the following "What's New Scooby-Doo" episodes:
Lights, Camera, Mayhem!
Simple Plan and the Invisible Madman
A Scooby-Doo Valentine
A Scooby-Doo Halloween
New Mexico, Old Monster
Big Appetite in Little Tokyo
Uncle Scooby and Antarctica
Block Long Hong Kong Terror
Reef Grief (mistitled on the back cover as "Great Reef")
Go West, Young Scoob
Fright House of a Lighthouse
Farmed and Dangerous
Gentlemen, Start Your Monsters!
A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Metallic Clown
If you have a good eye like me, you may notice that the last two episodes in that list are actually not listed on the back cover. However, the running times listed for volumes 9 and 10 (each disc is listed separately) are each 20 minutes longer than the other discs. This likely means that the same episodes that were 'bonus episodes' (the two last ones in that list) will also be included in this set as well, despite the fact that they are not listed.
Here's the link to the Amazon listing:
In the end credits for The Scooby-Doo Show, if you look closely, you can see the letters "HB" (standing for Hanna-Barbera) patterned across the background.
