Scooby-Doo Team-Up #1 by Sholly FischScooby-Doo where are you? I know; Scooby and the Mystery Inc. gang are at it again solving mysterious, but this time with the help of popular DC Comics Superheroes like Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, and the Teen Titans.
I must confess that I am a huge Scooby-Doo fan. So, when I picked up this book and saw that it retains the fun and charm of the late 1960s and early 1970s television shows and cartoons I was delighted. Add in the cartoon campiness of the 1970s and early 1980s Super Friends cartoon and this is a winning combination. However, the stories also delve in the current cartoon and comic book with jokes and characters from the Teen Titans.
The art style is in a colorful cartoony style perfectly matching the television shows they are based on. So, what age range is the main audience of this book? Everyone! The younger readers will love the art style and sight gags while the older reader will chuckle with the many references to the old television shows. I could hear Adam West and Burt Wards voices in my head when I was reading this book.
Scooby-Doo Meets Batman
It is the second animated television series in the studio's Scooby-Doo franchise, and follows the first incarnation, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Aside from doubling the length of each episode, The New Scooby-Doo Movies differed from its predecessor in the addition of a rotating special guest star slot; each episode featured real world celebrities or well known animated characters joining the Mystery, Inc. The characters from Harlem Globetrotters , Josie and the Pussycats , Jeannie , and Speed Buggy all appeared on the show during or after their own shows' original runs; The Addams Family and Batman and Robin both appeared on the show a year before they were incorporated into Hanna-Barbera shows of their own, The Addams Family and Super Friends , respectively. When the various Scooby-Doo series entered syndication in , each New Movies episode was halved and run as two half-hour parts. Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the s, the show contained a laugh track created by the studio. The first season of the series was animated at Hanna-Barbera's main studio in Los Angeles, while the second season was animated at their newly formed studio in Australia. Upon attempting to release a complete series set of the entire "episode" show on DVD in , Warner Home Video was unable to negotiate agreements with several of the episodes' guest stars to have those episodes included in the DVD set.
