Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Scooby randomly talks without his speech impediment, as if he's talking like a normal human being. He also gets a new impediment on the last panel of page 9.
  • Shaggy wears (green) socks.
  • Fred must've heard about Jim Morris in the news for him to automatically know why the latter dressed up as the sea monster.


Fred: Shaggy's unconscious!
Scrappy-Doo: How can they tell'?
