Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright Coming to DVD & Blu-ray on August 20, 2013

AUGUST 20, 2013

Release Features Bonus Scooby-Doo! Episodes

BURBANK, CA (May 8, 2013) – It’s a show-stopping performance you won’t want to miss on Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright, the all-new animated feature-length movie making its big debut on Blu-ray™ and DVD, August 20, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Join the Scooby and the Mystery Inc. gang as they try to raise the curtain on a ghostly mystery that’s haunting a creepy opera house, which happens to be the home of a popular, hit TV talent show. Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright will be sold in a Blu-ray combo pack (including the Blu-ray, standard DVD and UltraViolet™ editions of the film), which retails for $24.98 SRP and on standard DVD, which retails for $19.98 SRP (DVD).

It’s an exciting trip to Chicago for Scooby, Shaggy and the Mystery Inc. crew when two of their own, songwriting duo Fred and Daphne, are finalists in the hit TV show, Talent Star. Not to be left out, Scooby and Shaggy have a secret act in the works, which they are betting will take the contest by storm.  Unluckily for everyone, the competition is frightful — the show is broadcast from an opera house with a history of horrors and a particularly vengeful phantom that has cursed the show’s production. From costume changin’ chases to creepy clues, the show must go on.  With a natural talent like Scooby-Doo on the case, you can be sure that the laughs, thrills and hijinks are always first place!

DVD Review - LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out

LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Release Date: March 26, 2013
Retail: $14.98  
Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1
Number of discs: 1
Running Time: 22 minutes
Rating: Not Rated


There has been lots of excitement in the Star Wars universe since the announcement of the upcoming new sequel trilogy. I'm sure fans are excited about the LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out arriving on DVD. The twenty-two-minutes cartoon special aired on the Cartoon Network last year and is now out just in time for Easter.

I'm a fan of the original trilogy, but I missed out when the special aired on television and along with the prequel, The Padawan Menace. LEGO has been releasing Star Wars toys for years, so it was just a matter of time before an animated project was released.

The Empire Strikes Out takes place directly after Luke Skywalker blows up the Death Star. He continues his quest, along with R2-D2, to stop the Empire's next move, but he is side barred by a swarm of female fans that call him the Death-Star-Blower-Upper. Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa are building up an army of Gungan Warrior, while C-3PO is stuck with Chewbacca on the Millennium Falcon.

DVD Review - Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues!

Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues!
Studio: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
Release Date: January 8, 2013
Retail: $19.97 SRP
Running Time: 369 minutes
Number of discs: 2
Rated: Unrated

The zany Looney Tunes spin-off  is back in Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues! containing seventeen hilarious episodes (Eps. 67-82) on two discs. The Steven Spielberg produced animated series introduced many new characters such as Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Pucky Duck, Hamton J. Pig, Elmyra Duff, Montana Max, and many others, to whole new generation in the early 1990s. The series was set at Acme Acres, where the characters were enrolled at Acme Looniversity with the occasional cameo appearance by veteran Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and others.

I was a big fan of the Tiny Toon Adventures when I was growing up. I couldn't wait for school to get out so I could run home and watch the newest episode that aired at 4 o'clock in the afternoons. The characters were energetic and at times rude (especially Babs), in which I absolutely loved.

Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I can now relive my childhood by watching the newest DVD release, Tiny Toon Adventures Crazy Crew Rescues!, which I received free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

The episodes on the two discs are:

DVD Review - The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Evil Tower

The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Evil Tower
Studio: United American Video
Release Date: July 22, 2003
Running Time: 45 minutes


During the middle 1980s and early 1990s there was an animation boom on television. Very few made it past the first season as was the fate of The Legend of Zelda, based on the popular video game, which aired as a fifteen minute segment during The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! on Fridays on mainly Fox stations in 1989. There were only thirteen episodes aired during the series run, but it aired for a few more years in syndication.

Even though I did own a Nintendo game system when I was a kid, I wasn't a big fan of The Legend of Zelda game, but I do recall watching the short-lived animated series. If I remember correctly the series aired in the mornings as I believed I watched it before going to school.

DVD Review - Tiny Toon Adventures:How I Spent My Vacation

Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation
Directors: Rich Arons, Ken Boyer
Voice Cast: Charles Adler, Tress Macneille, Joe Alaskey, and many more
Studio: Warner Home Video
Release Date: August 21, 2012
Running Time: 80 minutes
Rated: NR

Everyday after school, I believe it was 4:30, I would watch the Tiny Toon Adventures that aired from 1990-1992 (original series episodes), and continued to air in reruns for several years. In March 1992, Warner Home video released the direct-to-video Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation, which some critics considered it to be odd because it was the first animated movie in the United States to be released straight to VHS and Laserdisc. The movie was a smash success selling over one million copies. The movie later aired as a four-part episode on Fox Kids.

In the movie, the Acme Looniversity school year is over and Buster & Babs Bunny (no relation) and the gang are excited to start their summer vacation. Buster and Babs start out by having a water gun fight, but then things turn ugly when they accidentally flood Acme Acres. They end up floating down the river, leading them down south to a riverboat, where they barely escape with their fur.

DVD Review - The Garfield Show: Holiday Extravaganza

The Garfield Show: Holiday Extravaganza
Studio: Dargaud
Release Date: September 4, 2012
Running Time: 72 minutes 
Rated: NR

I grew up watching Garfield & Friends and of course the CBS Garfield prime time specials. It took me awhile to get use to The Garfield Show, in which I am starting to like. The Holiday Extravaganza came out of nowhere. I never heard about the DVD being released until I came across it in the store. Since I am a die-hard Garfield fan, I eagerly bought it.

The episodes on this disc are:

The Haunted House - John is out of idea for a new comic book, so he spends the weekend at Mr. Barker's new mansion, which is haunted by a ghost cat!

Which Witch - The annoying twins Druscilla and Minerva are visiting John and Garfield plans on getting rid of them by sending them to a witch's house.

DVD Review - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute

The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Director: Peyo (original version), John Rust (English version)
Voice Actors: Richard Ashley, Robert Axelrod, Bill Capizzi, Cam Clarke, Ed Devereaux
Studio: Shout! Factory
ASIN: B0080730K2
Release Date: August 14, 2012
Running Time: 74 Minutes
Rated: G

The Smurfs and the Magic Flute was directed by the Smurfs creator Peyo and was released to theaters in 1976 in Belgium, and 1979 in the United Kingdom. In 1981, NBC aired The Smurfs from Hanna-Barbera and it was an instant success. An English dubbed version of The Smurfs and the Magic Flute came out to theaters in the USA in 1983. Despite being disliked by critics, the move was a box-office success. Over the years it has been only available on VHS, but never on DVD, until now.

The movie centers on a young squire, Johan, and his goofy sidekick, Peewit, (Peyo created the characters in 1952 and then created the Smurfs in 1958). Peewit gets a hold of a flute that has only six holes. Whoever is playing the flute can control other people by making them dance.
