"The "Scooby Doo meets Batman" DVD is campy fun featuring the two appearances made by Batman & Robin on The New Scooby Doo Movies (1972-1973). In "The Dynamic Scooby Doo Affair", The gang teams up with Batman & Robin for a wacky showdown in the funhouse against the Joker & the Penguin. In "The Caped Crusader Caper", Batman & Robin join the gang to once again stop the crazy villainous duo Penguin & Joker, this time from attempting to steal a flying suit from the word fumbling Professor Flakey. There are some cool extras like elapsed time footage of animators drawing both Scooby & Shaggy and interview clips of the original voice actors. As cool as this DVD is though, you may want to instead invest in the upcoming 4 DVD set release "The Best of the New Scooby Doo Movies" featuring 15 out of the 24 that aired including both of these Batman & Robin episodes. However, if you're only interested in the Batman & Robin appearances then this DVD is for you.
Goofs: *There are always some animation slip ups in cartoons, but not always as hilarious as Batman with no pants! Watch for it!
Trivia: *"The New Scooby Doo Movies" are double the length of an episode of the original "Scooby Doo Where are You?" show. They were aired in an hour block. On DVD they run around 40 minutes each.
*"The Best of the New Scooby Doo Movies" 4 DVD box set features episodes with guests the Three Stooges, Jonathan Winters, Don Knotts, Laurel & Hardy, the Harlem Globetrotters, Don Adams, Speed Buggy, Mama Cass, and Dick Van Dyke. Curiously, episodes with the Addams Family, Phyllis Diller, Sonny & Cher, Sandy Duncan, Davy Jones, Jerry Reed, Tim Conway, toon characters Josie & the Pussycats and Jeannie & Babu were not included. Instead the set chooses to have the multiple appearances by the Stooges (2), Batman & Robin (2), Knotts (2) and the Globetrotters (3).
*Both Shaggy & Robin are voiced by radio personality Casey Kasem.
*The genius Don Messick who is of course Scooby also voiced Astro from the Jetsons, Droopy the dog, Boo Boo & Ranger Smith of Yogi fame, Dr. Quest & Bandit from Jonny Quest, Papa Smurf & Azrael from The Smurfs and that goofy dog Mutley from Wacky Races...just to name a few!

"Alright. I admit that I do like Scooby Doo and Batman. So I am probably biased. Now ofcourse, this movie isn't for you if you don't like Scooby Doo or Batman. That said, this video/dvd is excellent! Granted, it's not so much a movie. Rather, it is 2 stories that have a double episode length. The 1st story revolves around Scooby and the gang being in the wrong place at the wrong time while Joker and Penguin have kidnapped a scientist and want to steal one of his inventions. But ofcourse, Batman and Robin soon come on the seen. The best thing I can say about this is that Scooby and the gang DO NOT step over Batman and Robin. Rather, the story is well balanced so that they actually compliment each other. Joker and Penguin are ofcourse up to no good, but they carry a charm that makes them not only entertaining, but at times even likable. And the scientist adds some more laughs with his unusual speech. And with all the laughs, the suspense is there. Onto the second story. It is a little weaker than the first, but it still carries an acceptable amount of suspense and laughs. This 2nd story revolves around Batman and Robin trying to uncover a counterfeiting operation. The batmobile gets stolen, and Batman and Robin are lead to a funhouse where Joker and Penguin have some surprises waiting for them. Interestingly, the way Batman is portrayed in this video is not so far away from the way Adam West played him. My advice is that if you are a Scooby fan, a Batman fan, or a fan of both, this is an absolute MUST HAVE!"

"I was desperate to find a batman cartoon that my young son (who LOVES batman) could actually watch... that is one without all the violence and rude language. Well I found it. This Scooby and Batman pairing is just what Mom ordered."

"The idea of Batman being with Scooby just fascinated my daughter from the time she was 2. She would sit and watch that movie over and over. When she got a little older she would go play Scooby Doo meets Batman with her toys. We went through 4 videos of this movie. Now we have it on DVD. She's 7 now and it is still her absolute favorite movie of all times.
