Full credits

The following credits try to match how they are displayed in the comic as much as possible:



  • Ironically, after the culprit is apprehended and his scam is exposed, while Mr. Coby and the nerd are arrested, the Scooby gang is actually contemplating about their supposed past lives.
  • Presumably, out of respect for people's deeply held beliefs or if kids were interested, the issue contains an editor's note about the serious aspect of religions who believe in reincarnation, and makes note that their goals are to attain a path of righteousness to the point where they will no longer be reborn.


  • Disguises: None.
  • "Ruh-roh" count: 0.
  • "Zoinks" count: 1.
  • "Jinkies" count: 1.
  • "Jeepers" count: 0.

Coloring mistakes

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Nedley Blake, Daphne's father, looks a lot different in this story than in his cartoon appearances. He looks similar to this, but with whiter hair, in Six is a Crowd.
