Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: Volume Two Bump In The Night (1969/Warner DVD)


Picture: C+ Sound: C Extras: C- Episodes: B-



After so many bad DVDs of later Scooby Doo adventures that pale as compared to the original and even Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! The Complete Third Season using the sacred title for shows actually entitled The Scooby-Doo Show on Scooby-Doo All-Stars from 1976-1978, we finally get original, vintage, authentic episodes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! The Complete Third Season in this Volume Two DVD single subtitled Bump In The Night. It is easy to forget how good the original show was, not overdoing it and respecting the intelligence of all viewers.


Only 4 episodes are included on this set, but they are all rather memorable and include:


  1. Decoy For A Dognapper
  2. What The Hex Going On?
  3. Never Ape An Ape Man
  4. Four Play In Funland



These shows are legitimately entertaining and show how this became so popular and influential, inspiring Sabrina (of Archie Comics fame) & The Groovie Goolies among other shows to become part of Horror/Comedy of Saturday Morning TV. These are all-time classic shows and among the true gems of the Hanna-Barbera catalog. Nice to see them on DVD.


The 1.33 X 1 full frame image can be a bit soft, but the color quality is very good and very consistent, showing how good and smart the artists were when they drew these early seasons. The Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono sound I son the weak side and I have heard these sound better before, but it is adequate, though Warner needs to go back to the camera negatives and redo these for Blu-ray. The extras include two trailers for other Warner DVDs and an episode from one of the never shows that is harmless, but does not try to look like the original entitled More Fondue For Scooby-Doo.
