Behind the scenes

  • With every episode's title card, one of the gang announces the guest star, which is Daphne this time.
  • Velma says "Jinkies" twice.
  • Fred says "Hold the phone" twice.
  • Shaggy says "Zoinks" once.
  • Daphne says "Jeepers" once.
  • Daphne and Fred's disguises on the riverboat were inspired by the respective outfits of Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve's characters in the film Somewhere in Time.[1]
  • The cameo of Mammoth Studios is a reference to "The Dreaded Remake of Jekyll & Hyde", which itself is a sequel to The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode "Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hyde."
  • We're giving a rare opportunity of seeing Velma eat.
  • Kacey calls Mystery Inc. "kooky kids," as if that isn't the least bit insulting.


  • There is a Tennessee colony in Texas, but Mystery Inc. is in Nashville, which is in the state of Tennessee, yet they and everyone else seem to treat Tennessee as if it's a part of Texas.
  • Fred says Tallis Taggert Auditorium, while Daphne has to one up Fred by saying Tallis Taggert Country Auditorium, while the building simply reads "TAGGERT."
  • The ghost of Taggert is called "Phantom" in the credits, although it's mistakingly spelled "Phanton."
  • In the credits, John Lupointe is called Perry John Lupointe, despite nobody calling him that.
