"Even though the 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo maybe have not been my favorite Scooby Doo show it definetly deserved a DVD release and I'm glad to see to make it to DVD. Although this show doesn't have Velma or Fred they also got new characters along with the well known Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Scrappy, and Daphne. The new characters consists of Flim Flam and Vincent Van Ghoul who helped the gang with what the main plot consisted of.
The main plot was that they were trying to put the 13 ghosts that they had released from the Chest of Demons by accident. While trying to do this two not so intelligent ghosts Weerd and Bogel get in the way and always tried to stop the gang but never really succeeded.
There were thirteen episodes produced and are listed below.
1. To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before
2. Scoobra Kadoobra
3. Me and My Shadow Demon
4. Reflections in a Ghoulish Eye
5. That's Monstertainment
6. Ship of Ghouls
7. A Spooky Little Ghoul Like You
8. When You Witch Upon A Star
9. It's A Wonderful Scoob
10. Scooby in Kwackyland
11. Coast to Ghost
12. The Ghouliest Show on Earth
13. Horror-Scope Scoob
So I'm very excited to see what else will be coming out on DVD soon. From the looks of it Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1will be put on DVD and Super Friends!: Season One, Vol. Two will also be coming on DVD soon.
I just recieved my copy of the DVD on July 16th 2010 and I was so excited. As soon as I had a chance I popped the disc out and watched the first episode. I really enjoyed it and really liked how Hanna Barbera made a sort of introduction episode to show how it all begins unlike some other shows.
The DVD itselve, I think looks good. Although it's a small thing and doesn't have any special features that actually talk about the show it still really good. I think as long as all the episodes are here then you should be happy. I really think Warner should do more DVD s like this for the shows that the don't want to spend lots of money on for a DVD release because of their worries that they won't sell good and even if they weren't the most popular shows it would still be good for the people who really enjoy then today. So yes I like the DVD and I'm happy to get to own these episodes for myself. So trust me if your having your doubts about the DVD in my opinion you should buy it.
Ok I hope my review is helpful. Oh and I'm excited to see that Johnny Bravo: Season One is now available. Also I'm excited to see Dexter's Laboratory: Season One to come out soon and also Scooby's All Star Laff-A-Lympics 2 (Full) coming out soon too."
How has it held up over the years?

"When I was a kid, I loved to watch Scooby Doo in syndication. There was nothing better than sitting down with a bowl of cocoa puffs and waiting for that crazy dog to grace my tv screen. My favorite series? The 13 Ghost of Scooby Doo of course! It was something rare to see Cartoon Network play this particular series much though, considering there were atleast 5 other incarnations of Scooby to choose from, but when they would show it, I was ecstatic!
How has it held up over the years? Wonderfully! I just finished watching my set earlier this morning, and nostalgia has set in, and I am in awe. Let's do an episode run down.
1x01 - To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before - Scooby and his pals crash in the a creepy town where 2 ghost await their arrival.
1x02 - Scoobra Kaboobra - In this episode, the gang must face an evil warlock who is bent on discovering a magical wand to give him infinite magic.
1x03 - Me and My Shadow Demon - This particular episode is one of my favorites. Queen Morbidia is throwing a party, and of course she wants the chest, so why not trap the gang in an infinite maze?
1x04 - Reflections in a Ghoulish Eye - The gang must travel to an Arabian villiage to expel a demon from a haunted mirror.
1x05 - That's Monstertainment - Zomba the red fleshed demon decides that she'll trap the gang in an old black and white movie to obtain the chest.
1x06 - Ship of Ghouls - Poor Scooby is so scared now, that the gang decided to take him on a cruise. Unbeknownst to them, the cruise is ran by ghosts, and they're heading to the Bermuda triangle!
1x07 - A Spooky Little Ghoul Like You - Vincent Van Ghoul has won the most coveted Warlock award known, but a certain Demonstress wants his magic, so she puts him in a love trance. Cant the gang save him in time?
1x08 - When You Witch Upon a Star - Marcella, a demon wind wants to be flesh again, so she recruits 3 idiot witches to help her, the gang can outsmart the 3, but can they outsmart Marcella?
1x09 - It's A Wonderful Scoob - How will the team fare against a ghost who can control time? What would life be like if Scooby quit the team? Watch and see!
1x10 - Scooby in KwackyLand - Yet another demon is after the chest, but how will the gang save it if they're trapped in a comic strip?
1x11 - Coast to Ghost - Ol' Vince is turning to stone, how can the gang save him? By teaming up with Bogel and Weird to get half way across the US to obtain a special mask!
1x12 - The Ghouliest Show on Earth - Scooby and the gang need a break, so they head back to Scooby's home town, little do they know, an evil circus has risen!
1x13 - Horror-scope Scoob - The finale! How can the gang stop the most powerful demon from stealing the chest? They may not!
Scooby - Our hungry hero who unexpectedly opens the chest releasing the spirits.
Shaggy - Scooby's owner, who is almost as dimwitted as Scooby!
Scrappy - Scooby's nephew, the mean bulldog stuck inside a pup's body! He's itchin to start a fight!
Daphne - The only sane person of the core 4, and the only female to boot.
FlimFlam - The fast talking, pint sized con artist.
Vincent Van Ghoul - Voiced by Vincent Price, he's the warlock that helps the team (Ala Charlie from Charlie's Angels)
Bogel and Weird - 2 idiot ghosts that try to foil the plans of the team.
The set is a nice one, the episodes, although grainy are in great shape. They have included subtitles and other languages also. The biggest problem that I have with the set? Every episode had a small segment before the opening credits that usually showed the featured ghost. Well, with the set, some of the episodes play the credits before the short opening, while other's keep the original order. These episodes are also uncut. The only features included are a video game preview, and an episode of one of the new incarnations of Scooby doo.
All in all, its a great set, so dont pass up on it."

"Interesting review title, isn't it? While watching the DVDs on this set, and finally rewatching the cartoons I remembered from my childhood, I realized that this show did some things that pretty much brings the Scooby-verse together.
For one, this series has real ghosts in every episode. No Fred and Daphne. It was the last series with Scrappy. Both Daphne and the Mystery Machine got a visual update.
Now, the series utilizes imagery from the old titles sequences of older Scooby-Doo series' to be representative of real ghosts and their powers. For instance, the ghost who looks like an evil version of He-Man's Orko has eyes like the outlined eyes near the end of the "Scooby-Doo Where Are You?" titles. In one episode a ghost's powers creates an orange swirling portal like the the swirling orange tunnel in the opening sequence of "The New Scooby-Doo Movies".
Flim-Flam many believe is an annoying addition to the gang, but actually he's a counterpoint to Scrappy that was much needed. He has the trap mentality of Fred but the showmanship flair of many of the old Shaggy & Scooby chase scene trick the monster antics.
Vincent Price as Vincent Van Ghoul lends a credibility to Scooby-Doo like nothing else. The addition of his character helps make the show having real ghosts seem more real, more believable, and his narrative poetry is not to be missed!
The reason why I say credibility is because the fake ghost era of Scooby-Doo was much like early huanted house film era horror in the USA with all monsters being hoaxes (such as "The Cat And The Canary" from 1927). By adding Vincent Price though it takes Scooby into the next phase, "House On Haunted Hill", "13 Ghosts", and such...and I mean the originals, NOT the remakes!
It's a great series and a must-have for any Scooby collector. Also, this series does have other attributes which were later added into "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo" from our seeing Scooby's parents for the first time, to the classic stop the story for a comedic news segment, and for the first time the characters break the 4th wall and acknowledge that they are in fact in a cartoon!
Warning! Contains Scrappy.

"I firmly believe that every Scooby-Doo DVD that has episodes with Scrappy should contain the above warning. True Scooby fans loathe Scrappy. Also, these episodes don't have Fred or Velma. No Velma? That's the real mystery. And there is a new character, the execrable Flim-Flam. Who needs that. The only redeeming feature is the voice of the legendary Vincent Price. There are plenty of Scooby-Doo DVDs available, so skip this one and pick up something else."
