Coloring mistakes

  • On the last page, Dr. Canard is missing his glasses.
  • Once again Velma's glasses are wildly miscolored. This time the frames are orange, matching her sweater.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The story is not set in Seattle.
  • On page 11, panel 2, it says Scooby and Scrappy are in trouble, when it should be Scooby and Shaggy.
  • Dr. Canard's punishment seems to be simply to take care of the animals.


Pa Raccoon: We believe you were meant to lead the animals against the humans and their destructive ways!!

Fred: Not the old buzz saw routine!
Dr. Canard: The reason it's been around so long is it works!
Shaggy: I was afraid that might be the reason!

Fred: This is it guys! But I wanted to say I loved having you as friends!!
Shaggy: That's funny! I wished I never met you!
