Premise

After the gang votes on their destination they end up at the annual dog show courtesy of Scooby. There Shaggy runs into an old acquaintance Meadow and her dog, M'Lady Moonbeam. However, the gang then has an unpleasant run-in with a cat creature who seems bent on ruining the dog-show and stealing the puppies of former winner dog, Crissie.

Notes/trivia

Cultural references

  • The episode title comes from Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, in which a group of animals trek across country to get home. Scooby emulates this with his journey with the puppies away from the kidnappers.
  • A woman dog-napping puppies with the help of two hired thugs also echoes 101 Dalmatians.
  • Mr. B is physically based on Joseph Barbera, the co-founder of Hanna-Barbera, as well as contributing to the idea for this episode. "Mr. B" is also a nickname for Mr. Barbera.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Daphne puts her laptop down on Shaggy's leg, yet it's pink like Daphne's pantyhose.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • If it really was Scooby-Dee at the dog show then it would seem odd that she wouldn't have been spotted by the gang.
  • Meadow had no idea that Scooby-Doo would be involved until the last minute. How in the world was she able to improvise a convincing disguise for M'Lady Moonbeam in the short time before the dog show began? (Possibly she realized a big, intimidating dog would be useful in separating the puppies from their mother, and had a generic Great Dane disguise all ready. Then all she would need to do would be to paint on spots to match his markings.)
  • By the time Scar and Skull leave Mukluk Gardens and get to their hideout (which didn't take very long), the latter is reading a newspaper that already reports on the dognapping.
  • At the end of the episode, Mr. B announces Scooby's full name and address as Scooby Doobus from Shagsmans Fields (possibly some kind of reference to Shaggy and/or his family, which contradicts what was given in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, where he was called Scoobert Doo and was born on Knittingham Puppy Farm. The DTV short film, Scooby-Doo! and the Beach Beastie, would contradict this episode, and give his full name as Scoobert von Dooenheimer. Both full names may explain the (hyphenated) nickname of "Scooby-Doo". Announcing him this way be in reference to how certain dogs were referred to (e.g. M'Lady Moonbeam of Monterey), although it's unknown why he couldn't have just said the correct name and place if this is the case. Scooby also didn't recognise his name either, but this was just playing on him not being used to it, just as nobody knew that "Norville" was Shaggy's real name in A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Metallic Clown (not even his friends).
  • Scooby winning best in show seems to be an honorable one, as the Secret Six join him on stage, as they were presumably the real winners (the competition must've finally got going after the Cat Creature was caught). The fact that they've won is clear, as Mr. B uses the money won from the dog show to buy a farm in Farmed & Dangerous. Them winning, however, contradicts what Mr. B said about them one day becoming grand champions, implying he had no intention of entering them yet, and he's only there to show off last year's winner, Crissie's puppies. Even though it's said Crissie is the defending champion, it's implied that having puppies has put her in retirement.
