BURBANK, CA -- Those meddling kids and their lovable dog are back in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated S1 V1, available for the first time on DVD January 25, 2011, from Warner Home Video (WHV). Featuring episodes from the newest incarnation of the popular Scooby-Doo franchise — Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated from Warner Bros. Animation, which currently airs Mondays at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network — this edgier, bolder adaptation of the legendary cartoon finds our favorite pals Daphne, Fred, Velma and Shaggy, along with the mystery-solving Scooby-Doo, investigating strange occurrences in their hometown of Crystal Cove. Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated S1 V1 will feature the first four episodes of the series and will retail for $14.97 SRP.
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated premiered as the #1 show on Cartoon Network with Kids 6–11 and continues to be #1 in its time period among key demos. In the series, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are back, solving mysteries in the spooky town of Crystal Cove, a sleepy coastal village that boasts a long history of ghostly sightings, werewolves and glowing deep sea divers. Because of all the paranormal activity, Crystal Cove has become a tourist hotspot that capitalizes on its haunted reputation — and the gang's meddling is therefore not appreciated by the people of Crystal Cove.
Each episode features a new mystery and it's up to the gang to solve it. In addition, there's a season-long mystery that the gang is uncovering along the way...a mystery that will change their lives forever once they've solved it. But the drama isn't limited to paranormal activities — the gang, portrayed as teens, deal with situations that arise within their families and in their personal relationships within the group.
Featured Episodes in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated S1 V1:
* "Beware the Beast from Below"* "The Creeping Creatures"* "Secret of the Ghost Rig"* "Revenge of the Man Crab"
Executive produced by Sam Register, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated draws on the iconic look and feel of the original Scooby-Doo series and is presented in a modernized visual style created by some of today's leading animation artists. Each episode is presented like a miniature movie. The series' dramatic, cinematic visuals allow for added depth in each story, while still allowing the show's comedic tones to shine through.
"Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated S1 V1 is a real throwback to the original Scooby-Doo with spectacular, dramatic effects that grab the viewer's attention," said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. He added, "Scooby-Doo is just as popular with kids and adults today as it was when it first debuted on TV. We are pleased to release this exciting, new adaptation of the series to consumers. This is a must-have title for Scooby-Doo fans and for anyone who appreciates great animation."
