A Pup Named Scooby Doo was a reinvention of the Scooby franchise in the late 80s, and featured Scooby, Shaggy, and the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang as kids. The Mystery Inc. gang proved to be meddling menaces to crooks, even at a young age, and you can join them on their first 13 episodes in this 2 disc set. Though these episodes were released in volumes a few years ago, Warner Bros has added some new bonus material, offering the older collectors a reason to buy the set. You can explore Coolsville, USA through an interactive map (featuring interviews with producer Tom Ruegger), and a pencil test Animatic of an alternate opening for the show.

Wow, March 15 is loaded with Warner releases! They have ER Season 7, The War at Home Season 1, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo Volume 6, Tom and Jerry Tales Volume 2, and Tex Avery's Droopy: The Complete Theatrical Collection, which aired as part of Tom and Jerry. That's five releases on one day!All right, time to get right to it: American Dad Volume 2 is my pick of the week for May 15. I'll admit that I'm not a big fan of this show, but the DVDs are pretty good. I prefer Family Guy over American Dad; I just feel that AD is too similar to FG, and I prefer Peter over Stan. The set includes commentary on every episode, plus three featurettes and "Multi-angle Scene Studies" on selected episodes.Other noteworthy releases coming next week: Banacek Season 1 from Hart Sharp and TV Guide, Frasier Season 9, Home Improvement Season 6, Martin Season 2, The Rockford Files Season 4, and Wings Season 4.
