In order of appearance:

It was dedicated to Iwao Takamoto, the original designer of the Scooby-Doo characters. It was also the final Scooby-Doo movie Joseph Barbera, co-founder of Hanna-Barbera, worked on before his death, but this and none of the subsequent Scooby-Doo movies have carried a dedication to him, although he does receive one in the computer game, Scooby-Doo! Case File 3: Frights! Camera! Mystery! He was also given one in Warner Bros. Animation's other DTV, Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale.
It was also the last Scooby-Doo DTV under the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment line.
Thomas Chase Jones composed the music.
Cartoon Network originally aired it on August 31, 2007, before it was released on DVD on September 4, 2007.
Behind the scenes
- The High Lama is a parody of the Dalai Lama. The idea of a "High Lama" was also done previously in The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest episode "Expedition to Khumbu".
- Del Chillman last appeared in the seventh DTV, Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster.
- Shangri-La is a place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by James Hilton.
- Del's calendar says July.
- Shaggy deejaying mirrors Casey Kasem's other job.
- Technically, "Sherpa" shouldn't be considered Pemba and Minga's last name. This comes from the fact that the Sherpa people only have a first name, and put down "Sherpa" as a last name in census forms, not realizing that others outside of their own community also only used a first name.
- The couple who walk past the café at the beginning of the film, are also at the end of the film, this strolling a baby along, even though the woman wasn't pregnant the first time, and not much time had past while the gang were in the Himalayas.
