'Scooby Doo, Where Are You! - The Third Season'
(Don Messick, Casey Kasem, et al / 2-Disc DVD / NR / (1978) 2007 / Warner Bros.)
Overview: A group of friends and their dog (Scooby Doo) travel in a van solving strange and hilarious mysteries. Popular cartoon series featuring Scooby Doo, a dog who joins Velma, Daphne, Freddie, and Shaggy on many quests to solve mysterious. Originally released as "The Scooby-Doo Show" from "Scooby-Doo's All-Stars."
DVD Verdict: All right folks, let's straighten this out once and for all. Season 3 of 'Scooby Doo, Where Are You?' contains the final 16 episodes of 'SCOOBY DOO WHERE ARE YOU?' and NOT 'THE SCOOBY-DYNOMUTT HOUR' OR 'THAT SCOOBY OLYMPICS/ALL STAR SHOW' THAT CAME OUT AFTER SEASON 3!! Nor does it contain any of the remaining 9 Scooby-Doo movies that were not on the greatest of the Scooby-Doo movies collection!
Now that we got that straightened out, here's some more solid info on this new - albeit, slim! - DVD box-set. For the 1978-1979 television season, Hanna-Barbera produced these sixteen third season episodes for broadcast on ABC. These episodes follow the episodes of Scooby-Doo made in 1976 and 1977 for ABC, and are more similar to those episodes than the 1969-1971 originals except that Scooby-Dum, a semi-regular character from the 1976 and 1977 episodes, does not appear.
ABC began airing these episodes on Saturday mornings at 8:00 AM EST beginning in September 1978. The show was canceled in November 1978 after nine episodes; the remaining seven first-run episodes were broadcast during ABC's Scooby's All-Stars block at 10:00 AM, which was originally broadcasting reruns of the 1976 and 1977 episodes. These 1978 episodes have been aired in syndication as part of The Scooby-Doo Show since the 1980s, but are now released on DVD under the title 'Scooby-Doo, Where are You? The Complete Third Season' for the first time ever. ENJOY!! This is a Full Screen Presentation (4:3) and comes with the Special Features of:
