Scooby's All-Star Laff-A Lympics - Volume 1 Arrives Just in Time for the 2010 Winter Olympics!

4 episodes from the classic cartoon which spans the Hanna-Barbera universe

Posted by David Lambert
    After Olympic fever swept the nations, especially the United States in 1976 (the nation's bicentennial), the worldwide sporting competitions would be sorely missed until 1980, as well as 1984, when the U.S. would be the host nation for the Summer Games. Fortunately Hanna-Barbera provided a worthy substitute in animated form as up to 45 of their cartoon characters (classic and otherwise) were featured on this show competing for the gold medal.

    While some events were similar to real-life Olympic events, most were pretty offbeat and quite unusual, and could only be done on cartoons like this. Among these weird events were racing on ostriches, camels, kangaroos, rickshaws and unicycles, as well as scavenging for creatures like the Abominable Snowman, vampires, and the Loch Ness Monster. With events like these, each Laff-A-Lympics was bound to be a major adventure!
With the 2010 Winter Olympics coming along in mid-February, it seems like Warner Home Video figured it would be the perfect time to finally bring out Scooby's All-Star Laff-A Lympics - Volume 1 on DVD! This single-disc title will arrive on January 19th, and contains 4 episodes:
  1. The Swiss Alps and Tokyo, Japan
  2. Acapulco and England
  3. The Sahara Desert and Scotland
  4. Florida and China
Cost is $14.97 for 88 minutes. In addition to the above, the disc will have a bonus episode from the first season of Shaggy & Scooby Doo Get a Clue titled "Smart House." Video is full frame. Audio is English Dolby 5.1, and French Stereo. Here's a look at the package art, and the graphics from the studio's e-announcement for this title:
