Notes/trivia

  • This plot follows the idea of It's a Wonderful Life, in which a man sees how bad things would be in his town if he had never been born.
    • The villain, "The Plotter", is an echo of the villain in that movie, Mr. Potter.
    • The town, Wingford Falls, is an echo of the setting for that movie, Bedford Falls.
    • The new name of the town in Shaggy's dream might have been called Plottersville, which is an echo of the new name of Bedford Falls in the movie's protagonist, George's dream, Pottersville.
  • Scooby-Doo had a similar experience in the The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo episode, It's A Wonderful Scoob.

Reception

It's a Wonderful Xmas from Scooby-Scooby-Doooooooooooo. Shaggy takes a tumble while fleeing from an imaginatively conceived masquerade by Pope and McRae. His trip to la-la land has him dreaming a little dream where Mystery Inc. never existed.

Simmons takes a time-honored tradition through the magnifying glass of the sleuth. Despite being consistently scared witless--evidenced by hilarious wild takes from the Shagster, Shaggy quickly learns that it's preferable to a world over-run by flamboyant real estate scammers. Bonus bell ringing for Simmons having Shaggy solve the mystery that led him to the insight.[1]
