Scooby-Doo, Where are You! on DVD
I spent many a Saturday morning as a child watching Scooby-Doo. When I watch it now I can still smell the bacon and eggs my father would cook every Saturday morning. He had a special way of making the eggs by frying them in the liquid bacon grease left over from making the bacon. It is the only thing I ever say my father cook. I was too young to see the original Scooby-Doo series in its Prime Time and it was in reruns when I was able to watch it in the late 1970s.
Scooby-Doo was a new non-violent breed of cartoon as parent run organizations such as ACT (Action for Children's Television) were rallying against more violent cartoons such as Jonny Quest. Hanna-Barbera and other producers were looking for a new non-violent yet entertaining cartoon.
In my opinion season one and two, know as "Scooby Doo, Where are You!" were the most entertaining seasons of the Scooby Doo cartoon. Later on they tried to have guest celebrities such as the Harlem Globe Trotters, The Three Stooges, or Don Knotts but nothing could compete with such classics as the "Miner 49er" from "Mine Your Own Business" or the eerie glowing ghost of Captain Cutler in a diving suit in "A Clue for Scooby Doo". I know the plots and clues in the episodes were a little corny but it made me seek out other mysteries in the form of reading "The Hardy Boys" and "The Three Investigators" line of books.
Scooby-Doo is a timeless cartoon and I now enjoy sharing a piece of my childhood with my seven year old daughter as we watch Scooby-Doo and the gang search for clues and catch the villain!
Season Three Contains some "jewels" like "A Scary Night With a Snow Beast Fright" and "To Switch a Witch".
Scooby Doo teams up with Scooby-Dum to solve such memorable mysteries as "The 10,000 Volt Ghost" and the "The Headless Horseman"
These mystery episodes contain guest appearances of The Harlem Globe Trotters, The Three Stooges, and Don Knotts.
