Behind the scenes
- A monster on the plane evokes the Twilight Zone episode "Terror at Twenty Thousand Feet."
- Mr. HB is named after Hanna-Barbera.
- The way the gang looks up from their book after the wind blows is reminiscent of them looking up from their book in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "What Night for a Knight."
- When the gang is sent back in time, moments from their past adventures are shown: Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo!, Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness, the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episode "Beware the Beast from Below," Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, a scene from the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! theme song, The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries episode "A Night Louse at the White House," The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode "Ghastly Ghost Town," a scene from Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy?, Scooby-Doo! and the Beach Beastie, and the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo theme song.
- The way Fred is reminded of his dad when Velma describes King Arthur as an authoritarian dictator, seems more like a reference to Fred Jones Sr. from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, than Skip Jones from Scooby-Doo! Pirates Ahoy!
- The wizard hat Velma wears is an allusion to Mickey Mouse's wizard hat in the 1940 film Fantasia.
- Winston mentions the 1941 film Citizen Kane.
- Scooby's ancestor came with Shaggy's ancestor on the Mayflower in The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show episode "Wedding Bell BOOs!" Although it's possible the Doos had come from Denmark before arriving in England.
- Truth be told, the scenes from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! shouldn't have been included as they exist in their own isolated universe. Yes, Scooby-Doo can be that complex.
