There have been at least two generations who were first introduced to ghosts, haunted houses, and mysteries from Scooby-Doo and his pals--Shaggy (the goofy stoner), Freddy (the responsible one), Daphne (the looker), and Velma (the brains, and a sentimental favorite). But did you know that Scooby is only a nickname? (For that matter, so is Shaggy.) Or that there have been four separate theme songs, for the series' different incarnations? (That's including the lean Scrappy-Doo years.) Filling out this collection are the oh-so-groovy tunes that served as background and chase-scene music in some of the best episodes of the series, like "Seven Days a Week," from Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright. Other highlights here are the Monkees' Davy Jones with "I Can Make You Happy" and the closing track, a dance-oriented remix of the theme song. Neither of the songs are particularly good, but they're plenty of fun just the same. --Randy Silver

"I'm sorry , I wanted to like this cd I really did , I mean , heck, scoob-n-I go back along ways. I was 9 years old when scooby-doo where are you first hit saturday morning back in 1969. And when I first heard about this cd and that it would have the "chase" songs on it[the only reason I bought it] I couldn't wait for it's release. But then what does rino records do ?. They put on those two crappy versions of "pretty mary sunlite" and "I can make you happy" taken from the scooby-doo movies and not the original ones from the second season of scooby-doo where are you?. Now don't get me wrong , I mean Jerry Reed is o.k. and as far as Davey Jones goes -heck - I'm a Monkees fan , but these versions just blow. As far as the rest of the cd goes?. I listen to the rest of the songs just once and haven't listen to them since. But you know what ?. If your a grown-up with kids [ like me ], kids who have just discovered scooby-doo , or just young at heart who loves those "chase" songs , then this cd has something for everyone."
Groovy, Scooby, groovy!!!

"A real treat to finally hear all of those Danny Janssen classics in their entirety. Plus, Jimmy Reed's "Pretty Mary Sunlite" is worth the cost of the whole cd. I've been singin' that damn tune since I was 6. The early songs are much better than the later Scoob tunes. Although, "Scooby's Mystery Mix" is pretty incredible - matching a vocal collage from the cartoon with electronic/rave music. A must have for any true Scooby fan."

"What a happy day it was when I stumbled across this CD. (I'd actually been looking for a Britney Spears album for my 5-year-old, and ended up with this. I'm sure we're all better off for it.)This album brings back memories of the '60s and 70's for me (and of the late '90s for Katie, who's been watching the show on Cartoon Network). My own faves are the earliest tunes--Recipe for My Love, Tell Me Tell Me, I Can Make You Happy. I can even tolerate Gotta Have Time, a throwback to the days of that failed experiment we call "disco." Katie likes everything except Pretty Mary Sunlite (five-year-olds haven't lived enough to appreciate Jerry Reed). The vocal interludes that transition you from song to song are entertaining--just long enough to refresh the listener's ear between ditties. This CD has bought us many hours of peace (albeit a few minutes at a time) as it has entertained Katie. We have even had a few free dance lessons, watching Katie do her go-go thing accompanied by the music (how could kids possibly know all those 1960's dances, anyway?). Thank you, Rhino Records!"
