Full credits

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


  • This is both the season two finale and series finale of The New Scooby-Doo Movies. It is also the last first-run Scooby-Doo cartoon on CBS, as well as the last new Scooby-Doo episode until 1976, which saw Scooby move to ABC on The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour. (CBS reran episodes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! for the next two years until then.)
  • Even when treating the monster and culprit as two separate characters, this is still the smallest guest cast of this particular series.
  • The Masked Marvel's disguise doesn't have a name.
  • Dick Van Dyke, like Jerry Reed and Don Adams, showed little to no fear of the "haunting".

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Mr. Van Dyke did his juggling, there were voice mistakes: Daphne said, "Great" but the voice was Velma's, Velma said, "Terrific", but the voice was Daphne's, and Daphne said, "Fantastic...", but the voice was Velma's.
  • Mr. Van Dyke got ice cream on his head, but the next scene he appeared, the ice cream was gone, with no time for him to clean up.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • At the beginning, Fred calls the gang, "kids", himself.
  • The strongman got ice cream all over himself because he crashed into the ice cream wagon, but Shaggy and Scooby ate up all the ice cream earlier, and there's no way Mr. Van Dyke had the chance to refill it.
