My children have been kept entertained this May half term, thanks to Warner Bros who sent us this Scooby-Doo DVD bundle. They are the 13 Spooky Tales range which contains two discs with 13 animated episodes: For the Love of Snack, Surf’s Up Scooby-Doo, Ruh-Roh Robot and Run for your Rife plus Pirates Ahoy! movie.
I grew up watching Scooby-Doo and have always been a fan. It’s great that my children enjoy them too. Now everything is on DVD, they can watch it any time they want. This half term, we have spent a lot of time at home doing homework, catching up with friends and cycling. Both Mr K and Ms C are early risers so having a stock of DVDs helps to keep them entertained until I wake up. Undoubtedly though, Mr K will always burst out with laughter which will echo upstairs.
For the Love of Snack DVD, the episodes are: Wanted Cheddar Alive, Night of the Living Burger, The Devouring, Big Appetite in Little Tokyo, Scooby’s Bull Fright/Stow-Aways/Long John Scrappy, Scooby Ghosts West/Swamp Witch/Waxworld, Scooby’s Swiss Miss/Et Tu Scoob?/Soggy Bog Scooby, South Seas Scare/Scooby Gumbo/Alaskan King Coward, When the Cicada Calls, Hothouse Scooby/Scooby-Doo 2000/Punk Rock Scooby, Recipe for Disaster, The Gathering Gloom and The Many Faces of Evil.

For the Ruh-Roh Robot DVD, the episodes are: Scooby-Doo! Mecha Mutt Menace, Way Out Scooby, Who’s Scooby-Doo?, Foul Play in Funland, The Scary Sky Skeleton, The Dinosaur Deception, Disappearing Car Caper, The Hand of Horror, The Bee Team, A Night Louse at the White House: Part 1, A Night Louse at the White House: Part 2, Doom Service and A Code in the Nose.
For the Run for your Rife DVD, the episodes are: Scooby-Doo! and the Spooky Scarecrow, Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Werewolf, A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts, Which Witch is Which?, A Tiki Scare Is No Fair, Scared a Lot in Camelot, Hang in There, Scooby-Doo, Snow Job Too Small, The Stoney Glare Stare, Scooby Doo and a Mummy, Too, A Scooby-Doo Halloween, Scoobra Kadoobra and Scooby In Kwackyland.
All these short episodes last for 22 minutes and they follow a similar pattern where Scooby-Doo and Shaggy manages to seek out the criminals and solve the case. It was never been a real ghost/monster/witch but someone pretending to be one. The animation is how I remember it from when I grew up but slicker. Both of my children enjoy watching it.
The Pirates Ahoy! Movie is a 68 minutes long movie. First shown in 2005, it is about the horror on the high seas when Scooby-Doo and the gang take a creepy cruise into one of the world’s most mysterious places – the legendary Bermuda Triangle! Again it was a fun show to entertain children.
