Detailed summary

Memorable quotes

Shaggy: Like, man, no more mysteries. Finally, a trip where there are no monsters, ghosts, aliens, mummies, or haunted tikis. Nothin' but R, R and R: Rest, relaxation, and round-the-clock eats.

Shaggy: I know I'm not gonna like the answer, but I'll ask anyway: What was that?
Rupert Garcia: Ghost pirates.
Shaggy: Told you I wouldn't like it. Zoinks.
Scooby: Yeah, zoinks.

Behind the scenes


  • When the ghost pirates attack the Galaxy Gazer at the beginning of the movie, Rupert swings his door open into the passage outside. When he sees the pirate ship with cannons at the ready pull up beside, he backs up and slams his door shut from the inside.
  • When Daphne is first in view in the Mystery Machine, she's clearly sitting regularly, but when it switches to up-close, she's in the middle of painting her toenails.
  • Daphne is barefoot while in the Mystery Machine, but when she gets out she is not only wearing her shoes but also her full-length stockings/tights.
  • The name on the vessel of Poseidon was originally called Poseidon's Paradise. After it's out of dock, the name disappears, and from then on it's simply referred to as Poseidon.
  • Skunkbeard's ship's size seems to change from colossal (while grappling the cruise ship) to the size of a small brig (during the last scenes). A ship from that time period would certainly be nowhere near as large as a modern cruise ship.
  • The pirates' motive for attacking the cruise ship was a reach at best. One could argue that Skunkbeard knew he needed Rupert to decode the map, but captured Skip instead because he was wearing the castaway clothes. But how did they know he was cast adrift (and not drowned) when his ship went down? How did they know he was rescued by that ship? Wellington arrived after Rupert was taken below deck. Why didn't they come back to search for him when they found he wasn't among the captives? Surely, Mysterio could have asked Rupert's crewmates what he looked like.
  • When Skunkbeard and Wally are searching Rupert's modest-sized quarters for him, what are the odds they wouldn't look under that bed?
  • It's simply impossible for a few solid cannonballs to sink a ship with the size and structure integrity of a modern cruise ship, like the Poseidon. Even with some damage, it should still have more than enough momentum and speed to ram Skunkbeard's ship (with the disastrous consequences to the latter).
