Dates are in order of release:

Behind the scenes

  • With every episode's title card, one of the gang announces the guest star, which is Shaggy this time.
  • The opening shot of Atlanta is reused from what was originally Chicago in "When Urkel-Bots Go Bad!"
  • Shaggy says "Zoinks" once.
  • Scooby says "Ruh-roh" once.
  • Velma says "Jinkies" twice.
  • In this episode, it's QTTT that produced the live performances of The Banana Splits, and aired The Herculoids.
  • Fred disguises himself in Flintstones-esque clothes, while Daphne disguises herself in exact clothing like Jeannie's from Jeannie.


  • The anchorman is credited as "Sports guy," despite not talking about sports.
  • In this episode, Simone is supposed to be an old classmate of Kenan's from their middle school, but in "The High School Wolfman's Musical Lament!", she went to high school with Christian Slater. That's a nine-year difference between the two actors.

Everlasting influence

  • Simone has appeared several times since trying to be noticed for being the talented performer that she is.
  • For some reason, A.J. Dobbs is back as the Pazzo in "One Minute Mysteries!"
  • The baby orangutan was in a ventriloquist's act in "Too Many Dummies!"
