    The missing 1 hour episodes, April 3, 2006

    It’s great they released these 1 hour scooby episodes that followed the 2 season run of scooby doo where are you?. Its just a shame they didn’t continue the original 1/2 hour shows as well. The one hour “movies” were filled with a lot of filler chase scenes and seemingly senseless time fillers to stretch them to 1 hour. Many show the same scenes over and over again. I still enjoyed them when I was a kid and will order this set for my 2 year old son. I still find the original series more entertaining than the movies episodes.

    Here is a listing of the missing episodes not included in this dvd:

    Scooby Doo Meets the Adams Family 1972

    A Good Medium is Rare 1972 starring Phyllis Diller

    Sandy Duncan’s Jeckyll And Hyde 1972

    The Secret of Shark Island 1972 stars Sonny and Cher

    The Haunted Horseman of Hagglethorn 1972 starring Davey Jones

    The Phantom of the Country Music Hall 1972 starring Jerry Reed

    Scooby Doo Meets Jeannie (of I love Jeannie) 1973

    The Haunted Showboat 1973 starring Josie and the Pussycats

    The Spirited Spooks Sports Show 1973 starring Tim Conway

    Too bad they have release issues with the stars, the Adams Family episode was one of my favorites.

    GUEST STARS GALORE!, March 7, 2005

    This review is from: The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies (DVD)

    I’ve always been a big Scooby Doo fan ever since the show first premiered in 1969 when I was just 6 years old. In 1972, “Scooby Doo, Where are You?” became “The New Scooby Doo Movies”. The show was now an hour long instead of 30 minutes and each episode had the gang meet a new guest star each week. This format lasted from 1972 through 1973 and featured 24 total episodes along with a Halloween special. Unfortunately, instead of giving us ALL 25 episodes, Warner Home Video has chosen to give us a “best of” collection of 15 episodes. Why not do all of them is a mystery for Scooby and the gang but I guess beggars cannot be choosers.

    “Ghastly Ghost Town” guest stars the Three Stooges. The gang is forced to seek help on foot in the desert after their van is forced onto a sand dune by a low-flying, king-sized bat. They come across Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly-Joe DeRita, whose amusement park is really the one in need of help.

    “The Dynamic Scooby Doo Affair” with Batman & Robin. When The Mystery Machine breaks the gang bump into smugglers, Batman and Robin, a little old lady, and a punching clown filled with counterfeit cash. A tip leads them to the carnival. . .where they find Joker and Penguin behind the kooky counterfeit caper. As is usually the case with these villainous villains, our heroes wind up in a funhouse hideout.

    “The Frickert Fracas” with Jonathan Winters. Hoping they will have a vacation from haunted houses and spooky characters when Jonathan Winters invites them to stay at Maude Frickert’s farm, Scooby-Doo and company soon learn differently when the place becomes overrun with vandalizing scoundrels and living scarecrows.

    “Guess who’s Knott Coming to Dinner?” with Don Knotts. When the gang stop at Moody Manor to get directions, they find themselves mistaken for Captain Moody’s neices and nephews by an assortment of characters who all resemble Don Knotts.

    “The Spooky Fog” – with Don Knotts. A spoof of Knott’s show Mayberry R.F.D, wherein a unique form of small-town hospitality is in store for Scooby-Doo and pals when officer Don Knotts invites them to spend the night at the best hotel in Juneberry: the local jail!

    “The Ghost of Bigfoot” with Laurel & Hardy. While visiting a ski lodge, the gang run into bellhops Laurel and Hardy, who attempt to help the gang uncover the mystery of the ghost of Bigfoot… but Laurel and Hardy are even more cowardly than Scooby and Shaggy.

    “The Ghost of the Red Baron” with the Three Stooges. The gang re-teams with the Three Stooges to ground the ghost of Baron Ludwig von Richtofen, The Red Baron, the evildoer of daring who has scared off all of Mr. Sawyer’s crop dusting pilots in an effort to pressure the farmer into leaving his land.

    “Ghostly Creeps from the Deep” with the Harlem Globetrotters. Scooby and the gang run across the clown princes of basketball, The Harlem Globetrotters on the eerie banks of a haunted swamp so that their boosted team spirit might protect them from the supernatural spirits being released by the ghost of Redbeard The Pirate.

    “The Caped Crusader Caper” with Batman & Robin. In Batman and Robin’s second appearance on this series, Scooby and the gang try to foil Joker and Penguin’s attempts to steal a flying suit from a goofy scientist.

    “The Lochness Mess” with the Harlem Globetrotters. The Gang travel to a small New England town to visit Shaggy’s Uncle Nathaniel but walk into the middle of a mystery complete with the ghost of Paul Revere and a spooky sea serpent. With the aid of The Harlem Globetrotters, they uncover a plot whereby Morgan, a local crook, is trying to scare the townsfolk into moving away in order to hide his discovery of a treasure ship.

    “The Mystery of the Haunted Island” – The Globetrotters are back again. The gang and the Trotters are taken by a spectral ship to a deserted island. They take refuge in a deserted mansion where statues come to life, books fly off the shelves, and ghosts and secret passages are everywhere.

    “The Exterminator” with Don Adams. The gang pick up Don Adams who is running an extermination business and take him to his next job at Horror Hill, an eerie, foreboding-looking ramshackle which is also the home of old horror film star Lorne Chumley.

    “The Weird Winds of Winona” – with Speed Buggy! The Mystery Machine breaks down and the gang find themselves running into Speed Buggy and his friends. It’s up to the two gangs to discovery the mystery of the winds that blow through the town that they’ve been stranded in.

    “The Haunted Candy Factory” with Mama Cass. Mama Cass, Scooby-Doo and company are caught in a “sticky mess” at her namesake candy factory when two green cotton candy globs attempt to “cover” stolen gold bullion with caramel, chocolate and nuts.

    “The Haunted Carnival” with Dick Van…
