Fans of the Scooby Doobies, the Yogi Yahooeys and even the Really Rottens will be running, jumping and skating into video stores to score some vintage 1970s Saturday morning animation.
The release of Scooby’s All-Star Laff-a-Lympics: Vol. 1 (Warner Bros., $14.97) brings four episodes of the Hanna-Barbera home on DVD for the first time. The series, which spoofed both the Olympics and ABC’s classic Battle of the Network Stars, featured dozens of Hanna-Barbera characters competing in sporting events both conventional and strange.
Also out this week for animation fans is Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series (Lionsgate, $19.98) and Veggie Tales: Silly Little Thing Called Love (Vivendi, $14.97).
Anime fans also get their due with the release of Bakugan Vol. 6: Time For Battle (Warner Bros., $14.97), Bleach Vol. 24 (VIZ, $24.92) and Case Closed Movie 5: Countdown To Heaven (FUNimation, $19.98).
