Scooby Doo 50th Anniversary Collection Available 6.4.19





Disclosure:  Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVDs I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

I grew up with Scooby-Doo and can remember sitting with my brothers and sister on Saturday mornings waiting to see what mystery Scooby and the Mystery Gang would be solving next.  I always loved the celebrity appearance episodes. They were my favorite.  This collection of episodes is so amazing.  When I received my review copies, the first thing I did was text a photo of them to my siblings and asked if they remembered watching the episodes together.  Of course they did.  Those are such great memories.  I plan on having a get together with my brothers and sister and binge watch these together.  I'll have to whip up some Scooby snacks for our get together!

This is the best collection of Scooby series that I have ever seen.  My son was also a Scooby Doo fan and often watched episodes with me.  I have seen so many different Scooby episodes and watched how he evolved over the years, but my heart belongs to the original episodes I grew up with.


Remember the classic Scooby-Doo animated series that featured all the iconic celebrity guest stars?  Now fans can own nearly all of these beloved episodes when Warner Bros.
