DVD Review : Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated : Season One Volume 1

Every time I turn around I seem to find another Scooby-Doo series out on dvd. Though that sounds like I'm complaining, believe me I'm not. Really I mean it when I say there is no such thing as too much Scooby-Doo and I'm grateful that there are enough episodes across several series to keep you busy for quite some time. My own childhood afternoons would have never been the same without endless amounts of Scooby-Doo to keep me busy.

The newest dvd release is Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated : Season One Volume 1 and it was the one series I had not seen any episodes of prior to doing this review. I was a little excited as this series claimed to be the most modern as well as offered some new aspects to the plot line that though hinted at in the past with some of the series was never really played out. The first of which is the love interests between the group. You always just assumed that the gang must have had something going on there, but it was really never that obvious or at least I can't remember it ever being part of the plot before. With Mystery Incorporated the gang's love interests have come into full view and in some ways I kinda like that aspect it does sometimes honestly get a little frustrating. It certainly does make Scooby-Doo more interesting to some of the girls out there though! The other aspect that I found really interesting is getting glimpses of the gang's parents. Again something you just always assumed but never really saw up till now.

The part I really like about this series is the new face lift the gang gets. Though their outfits and the van really do remain the same the graphics are very obviously cleaned up and the whole show gets sort of a modern comic book feel. All the lines are cleaner and the camera work is just far superior to some of the other series. It certainly brings the gang into the modern world.
