Scooby-Doo! 13 Spooky Tales: Surfs Up Scooby-Doo! -- Own it on DVD & Digital HD May 5th (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

My youngest daughter, Bella, is a huge Scooby-Doo fan.  She became a fan right before the holidays when she wasn't feeling well and resting on the couch watching television.  I was preparing soup for her and she couldn't find the remote to turn the channel. So, she let the channel play and Scooby-Doo! came on.  She asked me who the dog was and what the show was about.  But, before I could start telling her about Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the crime-busting crew, she shushed me up so she could watch. :-)

After the episode was over, she asked if we had DVDs of this show, as she wanted to watch more.  We didn't, and thus began our searching for and picking up DVDs to create a Scooby-Doo! movie collection.  And, now, Bella has another new Scooby-Doo! DVD to add to her growing collection, hanks to this upcoming release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Included on this 2-DVD release is 13 full-length episodes.  One is brand new and never aired, while others are new to DVD or from seasons 1 -3 of this popular television series. airing daily.

Bella loved the "Scooby-Doo! and the Beach Beastie," which was the brand-new 22 minute cartoon that has never aired.  I found myself sitting down to watch it with her, and remembering back to watching this show with my brothers on Saturdays and after school.  Oh, how I wish I had saves my Scooby-Doo! VHS tapes to share with Bella.  But, I am happy that Warner Bros. continues to release new Scooby-Doo! DVDs so that fans like my daughter (and myself) can pick up and enjoy time and again.
