Notes/trivia

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Most animation mistakes are done on purpose to poke fun at the actual ones done by animators of the original Scooby-Doo/Batman and Robin team-up episodes.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • It's debatable whether this episode should be considered canonical. The gang is placed in a death-trap that hinges on Scooby eating a large quantity of Scooby Snacks. If he does, a scale will go up and on the other side the whole gang will be lowered into a shark tank to die. Scooby says that he can't help himself, and begins to eat while his friends plead for him to stop. That crosses a moral line the real Scooby would never cross. Bat-Mite is an extra-dimensional prankster. He may be presenting something he made up, or something from an alternate universe than the normal Scooby canon.
  • Bat-Mite would go onto to appear in the Scooby-Doo comic series, Team-Up, making this technically not his only appearance, but since this animated appearance is in another show and the comic's own canon is debatable, it's unknown if the two are one and the same or exist in their own universes.
