Full credits

The following credits are how they are seen on-screen (or as close as possible).

Notes/trivia

  • This is the first episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! season 2 of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. Several signicant changes have been made beginning with this episode:
    • New scenes from this season have been put in the opening and closing credits, as well as a new version of the theme song performed by George A. Robertson, Jr. (also known as Austin Roberts), who replaces Larry Markes.
    • Robertson also peforms the series first chase song, with a new one for each episode.
    • Joe Ruby and Ken Spears are promoted to story editors and more writers have been hired.
  • The episode is a reference to the famous 1886 novel, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
  • Heather North replaces Stefanianna Christopherson as the voice of Daphne Blake, continuing to voice the character until 1997.  
  • This is one of the few Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episodes that seems to deliberately try to deceive the audience into thinking that someone innocent is the villain, and also one of the first examples of the villain trying to frame another named character.

Miscellaneous

  • Disguises: Uncle Happytime (a clown) and King of the Wild Blue Yonder (a pilot); Indian River (a cavalry captain) and Running Dog (a Native American); multiple Hydes.
  • Scooby Snacks bribe: One box.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • After he enters the basement, Dr. Jekyll's shadow vanishes. Later, Mr. Hyde's does, too.
  • While watching Shaggy and Scooby slide down the bannister, Fred turns his head all the way around.
  • The mud on Jekyll's shoes wasn't there a moment before.
  • Shaggy runs right through the wall, leaving a Shaggy-shaped hole... complete with floating pieces of wood to delineate the negative space in the crook of Shaggy's arms.
  • The picture on the wall is just a solid blue. Modern art?
  • When Scooby was climbing the wall at the end of the episode, he had suction cups on all four of his paws and one on his tail, but when he was on the ceiling, his front paws had no suction cups on them with no time for him to take them off.
  • Velma in the Hyde costume is considerably shorter than normal.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Dr Jekyll managed to plant all of the clues extremely quickly and yet methodically- unless he was prepared beforehand that someone might follow him, which is not what the Gang believed, this is somewhat miraculous.
  • When Shaggy and Scooby claim that "Dr Jekyll must have changed again," Velma claims this is impossible as she, Fred and Daphne just saw him reading in his study. At this point the audience is being led to believe Helga is the Ghost of Mr Hyde; but after it transpires that Jekyll is indeed the ghost, it means that Jekyll must indeed have moved impossibly quickly.
  • It wasn't really explained why Dr. Jekyll was so intent on getting the suction cups back; certainly he had extras and with all the false clues he planted they could have been dismissed as an anomaly. (although his determination to retrieve them was a big clue to their importance).
