Continuity

Notes/trivia

  • The San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 held the world premiere on the last day, July 27, with a scheduled panel featuring Grey DeLisle, Mindy Cohn, Jim Krieg and Paul McEvoy.[2] Evoy did not attend,[4] and despite DeLisle confirming that she wasn't attending either,[5] she was still listed right until the final day.[4] It was moderated by Jay Bastian.[6]
  • The is intended to be tie-in to Halloween, albeit two months ahead of time.[1]
  • This is the third time Anarbor's cover of the What's New, Scooby-Doo? theme song is used for an animated direct-to-video.
  • Daphne's weight gain from a Size 2 to an 8 being her "curse", gained some negativity for not only being inaccurate with how a Size 8 actually looks like, but having a negative influence over the young girls who have watched it. Warner Bros.' response was she and the others didn't lose what was most important to them: their friendship, and that she realizes what she looks like is superficial,[7] this is inspite of the fact that her main concern was wanting to know how big she got over everything else.
  • This is the first time post-WNSD era, specifically since Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword, that a chase song with lyrics has been used.
  • Scooble-Doo is a blatant parody of Google, tied with Scooby-Doo's name. It's unclear, besides the name, what the two actually have in common.
  • Daphne runs her own website, Jeepers, It's Daphne!, (a reference to her catchphrase) which she mainly uses to push a modelling career with, and does a live webchat. She calls her so-called fans, "Daphanatics".
  • The gTLDs in each web address is "hb", a reference to Hanna-Barbera.
  • The gang also got together at a restaurant near the beginning of the previous film, although the joke is here, is that instead of being apart as Fred suggests, the entirety of Jeepers, It's Daphne! was happening in the restaurant, Velma and the guys' laptops just altered their backgrounds.
  • Teen Mystery Solver Dish! would seem to imply that there are other teenage sleuths out there besides Mystery Inc..
  • It's revealed that the Dinkleys immigrated to America from Germany, which took place on a February 25 (although the village of Transylvania skews it with the country of Transylvania), and had their surname changed from Von Dinkenstein.
  • H8face is also another blatant parody of Facebook. Users "fiend" each other and groups get "yikes", instead of "likes".
  • The license plate has been changed from "195 343" (first seen in Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo) to "Crystal Cove" DISCORLS". Crystal Cove is the main setting of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. It also says December 2013. The front plate with words, "The Mystery Machine", from the previous film, has been removed.
  • Another reference to Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is the silhouettes of Velma's parents resembling Dale and Angie.
  • Poormond and Old Haven aren't real places, they're just parodies of Richmond and New Haven, respectively.
  • Similarly to the gang being altogether to begin with during Jeepers, It's Daphne!, their revenge-seekers found each other online, when their cells were right next to each other.

Adaptations

  • Scholastic published a novel in their Movie Reader line. It was originally called Scooby-Doo! It's Alive!.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Fred asks Velma what he had solved from the beginning, the orange from his ascot continues to the visible part of his neck below.
  • Velma's glasses aren't tinted when she holds up her phone showing parts of the Phantom Shadows case.
  • In newly-created scenes for the film, Mama Mione has black eyes, even though they are still green in the archived footage of her unmasking from The Creepy Case of Old Iron Face. Coincidentally, it's the exact opposite for Lila.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Daphne introduces AlexSuperFan2112 as if he's talking from a prerecorded message, even though he reacts to what Fred says.
  • The gang's old cases have some how been caught on film, and any scene can be brought up, even the events of this film are immediately brought up during the end credits, although that was done as an intentional joke to point out some of the errors.
  • Roger (Mamba Wamba) wasn't a music producer, he was actually the Alex Super Experience's manager.
  • The Green Phantoms (also called Green Ghosts) were actually called the Phantom Shadows in their original appearance.
  • It would be impossible for the Daphanatic to get the photos of Daphne the way she's posing like that, he would either have to have been stalking her since What's New, Scooby-Doo?, or she's been trying to begin her model portfolio since then by hiring someone to follow her around.
    • It's not completely impossible for Daphne to have had her photo taken to the red carpet premiere, but there wasn't a wall like that the first time.
    • One photo she must've posed for had her in her WNSD outfit with a purple handbag, but throughout that program, her handbag was green.
  • Crawls was simply using a fake name. It wasn't until Velma pointed out that Crawley and Mr. Crawls were one and the same in the wrap-up, did the gang recognise him.
  • The super suit was supposed to be built to fit little people only, yet it's later used by regular-sized people as well.
  • The gang have apparently finished eating at the restaurant as they've payed their cheque, yet there's a lone milkshake (with the addition of not just cream, but a cherry, too) just sitting on the table the entire time the gang are talking. They even walk away from it, without Scooby or Shaggy taking a sip, which seems highly improbable that they would leave it.
  • The gang seem to just irresponsibly abandon their laptops at the restaurant.
    • Daphne's briefly reappears on her lap in the passenger car.
  • Cayetanos Sticky Toffee Pudding is missing an apostrophe so it's unclear whether it's supposed to be singular or plural.
  • Although appearing in a flashback, Madelyn doesn't appear in the Dinkley family tree in the opening sequence, and despite being the youngest, Velma is identified as the youngest in the Baron's will. If she had questioned that (which she didn't), Crawley could've quite easily responded that it was made before Madelyn was born. (This may have been a given.) The fact that she wasn't mentioned is likely because (other than flat out being ignored) Crawls was out to get Velma, not her sister.
  • It's unknown if the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated allusions are supposed to retcon the two universes together. This would be impossible as Velma doesn't have a sibling in that series, and Fred and Daphne are in a committed relationship, this film keeps the two ambiguous, as always.
  • The proper title for a baron is "Lord".
  • It's unexplained how Velma's uncle became a baron.
  • The gang's train tickets all have the same seat number.
  • It seems odd to show the train's schedule board, and leave out Transylvania.
  • The Dinkley family is supposed to originate from Germany, but it sounds more like they were simply from Transylvania, Pennsylvania the entire time, not only due to the fact that that's the village which has had all the trouble of Dr. Von Dinkenstein and his monster, but there is no mention of the castle being moved, which would be logical reasoning to how it can go from being in, perhaps, the real Transylvania to the village namesake in America. There is also the issue of the Baron seemingly not leaving, giving reason for him to be able to still keep the Von Dinkenstein name, although that wouldn't explain why Velma said he "reclaimed" it? Maybe she meant figuratively.
  • The fact that there's a close-up of the Dinkley baby in the flashback would imply it was Velma. It would be trivial on any other Dinkley.
  • It doesn't take much time for the village to get a new train engine and clock tower after the former crashed into the clock tower. This is pointed out by AlexSuperFan2112 in the end credits.
  • There seems to be intentional anachronistic jokes to flashbacks with the village of Transylvania, including the naming of "Ye Olde Book Shop" and having a burger joint.
  • The zoo cemetery may have been made up since it wasn't actually named on-screen and just accompanied Agent Shmidlap's (as Iago) unproven retelling of events. It's possible he heard it from the townsfolk, but they, too, may have embellished on the story (especially being passed down from one generation to next).
  • Daphne's elation to seeing how big she had got might be one reason as to not taking notice she was wearing a fatsuit (her skin puffing out and the fatsuit must've been seamless), but that wouldn't explain how she couldn't have noticed her allergic reaction and seeing/hearing the fatsuit inflating out. She either took a really long blink or was getting changed in the dark. The same problems apply to hair.
    • Her weight gain doesn't cause her to sweat, not once, and she still incredibly agile, although this was by the time her swelling had gone done, but the weight of the fatsuit would still make it difficult -- she doesn't have a problem whatsoever.
    • Moments after being freed, Daphne's back in her regular outfit. Was she wearing it underneath? Her hair is also back to normal, but she had nothing to sort it out as the town doesn't use electricity (something she was terrified of). It could've been a wig, although this isn't acknowledged.
  • The Scooby Snacks boxes appear and reappear in moments.
  • The one Scooby Snacks box that is open looks empty.
  • Velma concludes that Crawley isn't her family's lawyer because she's never met him before. (Why she didn't see this earlier is unknown.) Is she included in all her family's legal issues?
  • The newspaper ad of Creeps and Crawls referred to them as "Attorney-at-Law", instead of "Attorneys-at-Law".
  • Mama Mione is fairly more feminine than her last appearance. This seems to be more due to the difference in animation than Mama Mione doing anything.
  • It does make one wonder why Daphne did not see the resemblance in Ghost of the Baron's mask to Old Iron Face's iconic one from the beginning. Perhaps she was fully able to register it once the case was solved.
  • It's not revealed who the Ghost of the Baron was, but more than anybody it would've have been Mama Mione (if there wasn't also someone taking a turn).
  • Crawls is conspicuously absent from the prison flashback (unless he had already finished his sentence).
  • Lila refers to the Scooby Gang Revenge Social Network as the anti-Scooby group set up on H8face, but it's its own website.
  • Fred loads up luggage on the Mystery Machine (wagon) as they're about to leave Transylvania, but they didn't come with anything except for the clothes on their back.
